  • How can I turn off Compatibility Mode in the program compatibility Assistant? (Recommended to install Kodak EasyShare software)

    EasyShare Digital Camera (model C813) bought in 2008; Earlier software installation on laptop.  At some point of the plant to a standstill and recommended to disable Compatibility Mode because (I think because the software was older...?).  I couldn't find where to turn it off.  I'm not very tech - know.

    Thank you.

    I think the message compatibility mode refers to means of IE, not Windows.  Later versions of Internet Explorer have a compat mode that allows IE to run like an earlier version.  The goal is to access websites that have not been updated for more recent versions of Internet Explorer.  Click the link Internet explore in the banner at the top of this forum page and use the forum for your current version of Internet Explorer.

  • How do you turn off UAC to make a program that we use all the time?

    I have a program, Seagull Jwalk (JW9c.exe) that we use in our business all the time. It works great on windows 7 in compatibility mode. However, whenever I click on the icon to start the program, I get the UAC prompt. given that this has happened several times a day for two weeks now, I don't think that the UAC prompt will disappear on its own. is it possible that I can manually turn off it just for this program? It will really annoy our users. But I don't want to completely lose security which provides the UAC.

    I turned off Wireless Sync for Contacts, calendar, and memos, but I can't find a place to disable the tasks. How can I do this so I can synchronize tasks as well when I connect my phone to my computer?

    Furthermore, I've never seen a list of tasks is displayed on my BB, even if I am able to create tasks. Should I see it on my screen with the list of the recent emails, upcoming appointments and missed calls?

    I finally got the answer from another forum.

    The task app is under Applications. Then press the BB button to open the menu and select Options. Wireless Setup is here.

  • How can I turn off the scale for the pipette/color theme tool?

    I have a shortcut key (F13) for the eyedropper tool that speeds up the formatting for me.  With the latest version of InDesign, the pipette now shares the same space as color theme tool, when I press initially on F13 I get the theme instead of the eyedropper color tool.  Yes this happens only at first, but I don't want it to happen at all.  Is there a way I can turn off the toggle between these 2 tools so that F13 only active the eyedropper tool?

    No worries, I found this thread:

    Is there a way to make the ordinary Eyedropper tool FAILURE since they added a stupid color theme tool?

  • BlackBerry Smartphones how can I turn off Auto-Text for SMS, MMS, emails, and Instnt Msgng?

    Hello world

    Anyone know how I can disable will on e-mails, sms, mms & Instant Messaging online programs? Usually, I type in shorthand (words without vowels, acronyms, etc.) for faster messages... especially with the touchscreen technology / click safe poor of this phone.

    However, whenever I'm trying to stenography, the Auto-text suggestion & there is no other choice but to select some Word returns. Its really get irritating. :~/


    You have three things going on on the 9500 in portrait mode... Automatic insertion of predictive text and SureType.

    For AutoText, you just delete all entries. I don't know how to enable and disable.

    Predictive text - go to Options > language > input Options > predictive and uncheck. Similarly, there you can disable spell variants.
