I can't view my photos, no thumbnail shows, and Windows Explorer will crash if I try

All of a sudden I can't see my pictures in Microsoft Office Picture Manager instead of the default (don't remember what it was called Photo Gallery?).  When I open any image file on my computer, it will show the name of the photo, but no thumbnail preview is displayed.  Even my desktop wallpaper, which was a picture of my computer, now is just empty.  When I try to upload photos on Facebook from my computer, Firefox or Internet Explorer will crash.  Help!

  • How can I restart firefox with the same tabs and windows?

    How can I restart firefox with the same tabs and windows?

    It is not in the file menu or tools. I get nothing when searching for help. FF still knows how to do it, say to update extensions.

    I know that I can do by saving my session, coming out, reboot and restore the session but is there a single command to do this?

    Thank you. -David

    I have attached a screenshot showing how to select restore automatic session just above the setting of the Home Page where it says "When Firefox starts".

    With this set, you can restart Firefox manually out using the menu-

    • "3-bar" menu button > button "power".
    • (menu bar) File > Exit

    -and then restart Firefox.

    If you want a real reboot with a click of button, you can check something on the Add-ons site: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/

  • How can I print my photos displaying the date and time stamp

    I have pictures in a legal context but do not understand how to print them displaying the date and time stamp.  The timbre of the date and time are necessary for me to present my case exactly.  Can someone tell me how to print with these marks.

    Thank you

    The following instructions will prepare photos
    with the EXIF Date/time stamp then you can print
    them.

    FastStone Image Viewer freeware can add
    EXIF Date/time in the face of your photos in a batch.

    (FWIW... it's always a good idea to create a system)
    Restore point before installing software or updates)

    FastStone Image Viewer
    http://www.FastStone.org/FSViewerDetail.htm
    (Windows XP / Vista / 7)

    I suggest that you create a new folder and add
    copies of your photos for experimental purposes.
    If you are unhappy with the result your originals
    will be intact.

    After FastStone is downloaded and installed...
    Open the program and go...

    Tools / open the Batch Conversion / tab Batch convert...

    Check the box... Use of advanced options...

    Advanced Options button / tab text.
    Check the box... Add text...

    (You will need to experiment with the position and the police
    size and color to get the desired result.)
    (the text size will need to be adjusted according to the)
    the size of the photos)

    Open the window drop... "Insert a Variable."
    choose... EXIF Date Time / Date and time...
    (in the white field you should see ($H1)
    Left click... Ok

    On the Batch tab convert... in the left field...
    Left click the square button "select the Source folder.
    Find and select the photos you want to
    Add.

    Left, click on the Add button to move the files to
    the right field.

    Choose an output Format...

    Choose an output folder...

    Click on the button convert...

    It's much easier to do than to explain then
    give it a try before say you "Good Grief... it's too
    a lot of work.

  • How can I delete my photos on my iPad and phone but keep about iCloud

    MY storage on my phone is full, it is synced with my iPad. I would like to store all of my photos on iCloud, so I free storage on my phone and iPad. Someone know how to do this or have any ideas?

    If you have iCloud enabled library, all the photos that you delete from your phone will be deleted to iCloud and other devices connected to this library to iCloud. The more you can do to reduce storage required on the phone is to activate settings > iCloud > Photos > optimize iPhone storage.

    Apple does not currently cloud storage options only. You can suggest that more options are available through http://www.apple.com/feedback/icloud.html

    There are 3rd party cloud services that only have a cloud options.

  • Can someone guide me to implement my XP and Windows 7 based IIS to work with PHP?

    I tried to implement my workstation local based working with PHP, IIS servers but the instructions I can find are vague and so far, I did not get the servers to answer even a simple PHP script.  I was hoping since Expression Web products claim to be able to build PHP applications that by extension could someone give me advice to set up PHP to work with my local IIS installations.  I have Windows XP Pro and Windows 7 Pro work positions.  This is a forum for Windows 7 and I thought someone here might have the experience and knows how to get the operational product.  Just for reference, I'm trying to use php - 5.4.10 - Win32-VC9 - x 86, which is, in my view, their latest stable version.  VC9 is what they say to use with IIS.

    Documentation is an ISAPI filter that is available, but I can't find this dll in the decompression code.  The other alternative is "fastcgi", but I don't know how configured

  • We can establish a common partition for Mac OS and Windows Boot Camp

    I'm new to Mac, so please excuse my ignorance.

    I have a MacBookPro 11 mid-2015 with 512 GB SSD and 16 GB of RAM.

    I have Mac OS X El Capitan and that you have installed 10 Windows using the Boot Camp utility on a 150 GB partition. I wanted a common partition on exFAT which could serve as a repository for my data either of the OS. My intention - 150 GB for Mac OS - 200 GB of data - 150 GB for Windows 10. How can this be achieved?

    Earlier, after the Boot Camp, I reduced the Mac OS to 350 GB partition to 150 GB and released 200 GB. Formatting this turned me expensive because it stopped my Windows to start. Repair it was a waste of time and effort. I draw the hard Windows on a Mac is sensitive to changes in the partition.

    In addition, is using Virtual Box better than Boot Camp? I don't have as much virtualized environments.

    Please advice.

    You can connect an external drive of ExFat formatted. The OSX and Windows can read/write on a disk formatted ExFat.

    A virtual machine has its advantages, as does a Boot Camp facility. A virtual machine allows the simultaneous OS, any necessary initialization to change operating systems. Data can be shared between operating systems more easily. Computer such as memory resources are shared in a VM for applications environment to run slower.

    Installation of Boot Camp allows Windows to run in native mode by using all of the system resources, so apps will go faster. But to change operating systems, a reboot is required. It is more difficult to share data.
