  • Bug? Print several files from the Explorer of Windows 7.

    When I try to print multiple files of a directory displayed in the Explorer of Windows 7, the print command of the context menu is available ONLY when the selected for printing files are ALL visible on the screen. For example, if I select 5 contiguous files in the list view, and they are all visible on the screen, then I can print all 5 files from the print command from the context menu. But if I select 30 contiguous files in the list, and only 25 of these files are visible on the screen, then the print command disappears in the context menu. Is this a bug in Windows 7?

    Other reports in the forums, there seems to be a limit of 15 files, but I didn't know he documented by Microsoft.  I don't think it's important that all files are visible on the screen.

  • Cannot open file from the file Explorer, if the player is already open.

    All our PC (Windows 7 64 Pro; AD domain) got the last reader app.

    Since then, we are unable to open a PDF from File Explorer if the player is already running.

    All our machines experiment the same problem. Can anyone help? Thank you.

    No, it wasn't any error message. Just file does not open.

    Fortunately I was able to find the fix by myself: uncheck the checkbox in the settings of the security drive (improved)-> enable safe_mode at startup. Once this is done, the PDF files can be opened even if the drive is already managing a PDF document.

    Version is: 15.010.20059.40980 (French)

    I was very disappointed not to find any help on this issue in the forums, in Google, and worst of all, no offer support (support same paid) for this kind of problem from Adobe.

  • Not able to open files from the internet.

    I tried to open the files in the past (trying to find the specific file example, but not ablt to) and I get a new window and it appears asking me to select a language. I chose "default windows" and English of the West, but always 'open' the file in a number format. I don't know what is happening or how to fix it. These were not large files, and it doesn't all the time.


    Looks like you are trying to open binary files - those that are coded and require special
    programs to decode them. Some can even be designed to open, like executibles (.exe
    and .com) or. DLL files among many others.

    If you need to be able to open a specific file type control these sites and if necessary ask questions on
    them, in a message.

  • Convert several Word files from the Explorer windows for PDFs with bookmarks


    I used to be able to select several Word documents in Windows Explorer and convert them into multiple individual PDFs with bookmarks (using XP, Office 2007, Acrobat 8 Standard). Lately, my computer has been upgraded to Windows 7 with Office 2010 and Acrobat X Standard. The selection of multiple files function exist; However, I encounter following issues:

    Thank you


    1. the converted files without all the bookmarks.
    2. save the file screen pop up twice. First asked me to save to where it begins to convert, after PDF conversion screen has finished, it will ask me again to save the file in the root directory, i.e. when the files are really saving.
    3. for each open Doc file, Word 2010 pop up a message will indicate that the normal template file has been changed and ask me if I want to store the update.

    I tried searching everywhere on the web and seems we do not encounter the problem. Did someone encouerting similar problem?  Is there a way to solve the problem?

    Finally, I reinstalled Office 2010 and Acrobat X Standard.  Everything went very well.  No found bugs.  It must be a problem during the installation of the program. Detective Conan.

  • transfer files from the old drive hard windows 7 to new computer windows 8

    My old laptop windows 7 crashed for an unknown reason, so I bought a new laptop with windows 8. I removed the hard drive from the windows 7 machine and using an external enclosure card connected to the new laptop.

    I can see and open any public folders in the folder of the user data, but can not access a user folder. Also when I right click on the folder of the user, it seems that they are empty.

    I have tried making the appropriation and unchecking hidden files but still no luck.

    Pretty frustrated right now.

    I think I solved the problem.

    I had to do a right-click on the folder user and copy and paste in a new folder. While he was doing that he clean up some data. Don't know exactly what was going since I wasn't there when it happened.

    Once he went through this process, I could see my user files to the new folder and the old hard drive.

    Sorry I can't explain it better.

  • Impossible to decrypt encrypted files from the previous installation of Windows

    original title: decrypt the new windows file encrypted aftre

    I have a problem with decrypt file tha I ecrypt under windows and now my c: partition is formatted and my encrypted data cannot be decrypted

    Note: I use this method for encryption

    1. Right click on the file that you want to encrypt, and then click Properties.

    2. Click the general tab and then click Advanced.

    3. Select encrypt it the contents of the box to secure the data, click OK, and then click OK again.

    You can solve this problem for me

    If you encrypted the files/folders and transfer them to a new installation of XP, you can only decrypt using your original installation of XP encryption key.
    If this is the case, the key to decrypt these files was managed by Windows as a certificate in your certificate from your original installation store. These certificates are, in turn, encrypted to your Secure ID, your password and many other things.

    This information would be lost on a new XP installation.

    The easy way to restore access to your files is to restore your certificate from the backup that you have conscientiously performed pursuant to subsection 'Why you should back up your certificates' in the article:

    "Best practices for EFS file system.

    If you don't have a copy of your certificate, then you need to restore your old system from a backup connection, image-style and then retrieve your certificate.

    Otherwise, your data is history.  EFS is very secure and there is no back door.

    Because the instructions for encryption are often never read, understood and followed or the importance of backing up certificates
    is not followed or understood, the EFS was affectionately known as the 'delay of trash. "

    Allegedly, you may be able to hire a person specializing in the recovery of encrypted files to try to help you. Do not guess what the problem might be - understand and resolve it. I need YOUR voice and the points for helpful answers and propose responses. I'm saving for a pony!

  • How to open files from the list of contacts on the computer at home, the vcf files

    I exported my contacts list on my computer, it is a .vcf file.  I can open it by clicking on it, but only the first contact is displayed.  This screen looks like a file roledex.  but I don't know how to access other files.  I can open the file with "word" and "excel" vcf and all the data is there, but the result is not reader friendly.

    There is an additional program which allows opening these contacts in a friendly dispay?

    Thank you.


    I believe you can do it through Windows live mail.  Alternatively, you can import it into your google account in a web browser.  The advantage to using Gmail, it's that once you make changes you can have them automatically sync them to your phone if you have Gmail on your Droid.

  • Creating a PDF file from the screen printing on Windows Photo Gallery

    I need to print to PDF from Windows Photo Gallery - specifically the contact sheet

    Do I need to have something put in place in the printer section to do this?  like to convert it to the PDF format

    Hello k. Hilger,.

    The Windows Photo Gallery does not read or open the PDF files.

    The best way to print PDF files is as you say, take a snapshot using the screen printing screen.

    Save the file as .jpeg and then open with Windows Photo Gallery and you should be able to print it out.

    You may not make any changes to your printer.

    Thank you
