"Your local network" is the computers that are on the same router as you. At home, this is your family.

to: "computer name" is the name of the computer, they will see.

Access is provided for items you decide to activate, usually file sharing. For sharing of files, ONLY the items that you specify in the file sharing dialog box details panel is accessible and be only users you EXPLICITLY list by username.

  • I need help with my HP color laserjet 2605dn. None of the computers on my local network can 'find '.

    The IP address on the printer displays as 000.000.000.000 I figured out how to change it, but I don't know what to take.  Should I update the network mask and gateway too?  I really want to get this working.  Don't want to have to buy a new printer.

    Thanks in advance for any help

    Hello

    0.0.0.0 means the printer disconnected from the network...

    Any change of the IP address will not apply as long as the printer is disconnected.

    First of all, try to restart the printer so the router and check any change.

    Try to plug the ethernet cable into another port on your router, then check any chamge (most probably you will see 4 ports listed as 1-4).

    If there is no change yet, try to replace the ethernet cable and check any change.

    If there is still no change, try to plug the etehrnet directly from the printer to one of your PC - if the printer will connect in this way, it means that there is something wrong with your router.

    If the same by both direct connection, this means that the printer ethernet card is defective and you need to service the printer.

    When I start most of the programs that is lock and on the taskbar it says program does not.  How can I stop this from happening?

    Original title: Windows Explorer

    It is a good number with a boot drive (C:\ drive) that is cruelly of free space.

    A healthy walk NEEDS 20% free space at least to work properly and prevent your suspension system.

    Several causes are possible, but check your free space. Upgrade your hard drive if necessary.

    More RAM might help too.

    Check these before you attempt to update or install anything more.

  • I have more than music in itunes my ipod can hold, the last time I synced, there was a box to synchronize playlists only, now it's over so how can I now sync playlists only, you can see?

    I have more than music in itunes my ipod can hold, the last time I synced, there was a box to synchronize playlists only, now it's over so how can I now sync playlists only, you can see?

    Select the iPod in iTunes (click on its button on the device on the horizontal bar) to show its settings screen in the iTunes window.  The side left (in the sidebar), under settings, click music.  To the right, the settings screen of music from iPod, where you tell iTunes how to sync songs to the iPod.

    NOTE: All of the songs on the iPod that are not in your iTunes library (on the computer) will be lost.

    Check the box to Sync music (if it isn't already).  Below, choose the option synchronize playlists, artists, albums, and genres.  Below, under playlists, select (check) the playlists you want on the iPod.  You can also select other articles on other lists, as you wish.  Click Apply to sync your selection to iPod.

    Further, iTunes automatically updated the iPod with the changes made to the selected part of the iTunes music library.  For example, if you update a list of selected reading (add/remove songs), updates iTunes, the iPod with the same changes the next time you connect (or click Sync if already connected).

    Right. You must save a separate project once per day at a minimum, copy so that you have several backups in place. Make sure automatic backup is running.

  • Installation of the Photoshot 13 elements. error message: "this is a problem when extracting the files. Check the amount of space available on your computer and the rights to write to the destination folder. I have 1.38 TB of free space and total control

    I try to install photoshop elements 13, that I bought and downloaded from Amazon. When I try to install it I get the following error message: "this is a problem when extracting the files. Check the amount of space available on your computer and the rights to write to the destination folder. I administrar 1.38 TB of free space and total control.

    Charles please do not remove the installation files in the Program Files directory.  I recommend to extract the installation to your downloads folder or your desktop files.  Once installation files are extracted, you can then run the installation program to install Photoshop elements 13.

  • How to choose the object that others will line up to?

    Hi I'm attacking with Illustrator, having been familiar with CorelDRAW X 5, and some of the fundamental things in artificial intelligence are just weird!

    A common operation is to have a bunch of stuff I want to align, where I spent the time of positioning on the particular object so I want that everything stays aligned him to this object. I can do it in artificial intelligence?

    For example, I have two rectangles A and B, separated horizontally with a greater than B. I want that the upper edge of the B to align to the top edge. I select A, then B and align top. It works - B moves upward.

    However if I want albums edge to align the top edge of the B, it does not work how I expect. B always moves. It doesn't matter if I choose first or second, B is the one who moves, when A is above B.

    It's frustrating when I have a lot of objects that are carefully aligned, and I want to align a new object with them. What often happens is that all of my objects placed move to align with the Unplaced object, so I spend a lot of time.

    Y at - it a simple way to choose the object that others in the choice of align on? In CorelDraw, it's the last selected object that determines how many others will be moved.

    Thank you

    Rob

    Select all the objects you want to align, and then click again on the object of the selection you want that all the others will match (object key).

    the key of the object will appear thicker than others.
