Mondays News Letter Tips.
1. On my Laptop, Microphone Settings are Disabled. Whenever I double click on
volume control, I cannot see microphone settings. Please guide me to enable
2. How can I Print a Page without the URL Path showing at Bottom of the Page? I
got a new pc and now can't eliminate this URL when I print a web page. I am
running Windows XP Pro.
3. Whenever I get an error with my Internet Explorer 6.0, a pop-up appears
asking me if I would like to run Dr. Watson Debugger. Is this a legitimate
4. Double-click with Mouse on Windows XP. I used to be able to double-click on
icons and get them to open or run automatically. Now I can't do that anymore,
and have to click once and then on the drop-down menu, click "Open", to actually
open the folder. However, that means that when I open a WinRAR folder or similar
to run an application, I can't double-click on the application to let it run.
5. I had 2 sessions of Windows Explorer open the other day and I hit some Key
Combination that arranged both windows on my screen evenly. Basically I had 2
windows explorer screens each taking up half of my screen. I cannot seem to make
this happen again? Is there a key stroke (or command) that evenly arranges all
active programs (windows) on the screen? I am using Windows XP.
6. I am using XP Home, Version 2002 with SP2 Firewall, also have Norton anti
virus 2005 anti-spyware edition with firewall. I have read somewhere that it's
best to use only one firewall, Is this correct? If so which one do you think
would be best?
7. When I try and access 'Help and Support' I get an error message telling me
Windows cannot open H & S and telling me to fix the problem by starting service
named 'Help and Support'! I'd be very grateful for any help.
8. I need to find a way to Print Out The Results of ipconfig /all. When I press
Print Screen I get no output. Have I overlooked something as I can remember
doing this successfully in the past i.e. Windows 3.1

Wednesdays News Letter Tips.
1. I'm not sure what I did but my URL address under my tool bar no longer
appears and I'm not sure how to get it back. If I want to type in an address I
can't I have to do a search to find the site. It's really frustrating. I'm sure
the answer is simple but I can't seem to figure out how to get that URL section
back under my tool bar. I know it must be a dumb question, If you can help I'd
appreciate it. Thanks.
2. I prefer to see the lists of subdirectories and files in "list" or "detail"
format rather than as icons of some sort, which seems to be the default setting
on my computer. I always have to go change the way the info is displayed. How
can I get Windows XP to present the data listed as I would like to see it, in
3. I'm using XP Pro (SP2). I've noticed that all of a sudden, and only recently
too, the names of many of my files appear in blue text when I view them in
Windows Explorer. Not all files are affected, and it seems that ANY file type
can be affected. All the files open as normal and behave as normal so this blue
text doesn't seem to have affected the file in any other ways, so it's more of a
mystery than a problem (and it's beginning to annoy me now because I can't
figure out what caused it). Any ideas about what may have caused this and how I
can fix it?
4. How do I clear the list of documents that have been opened or looked at?
Anyone can hit documents and up comes the last 20 or so files that have been
5. I have a WINDOWS XP HP Pavilion desktop, I would like to know if it has a
database? That information can be submitted to from a webpage locally?. Like
this page I am writing on now only done offline locally but so a administrator
can use to submit information to a database?
6. I am new to XP down by the clock i have an arrow "show hidden icons" or
"hide" how do i set this to show them all the time? and also coming from Windows
ME I had another short cut section on the task bar next to the START button can
i set this up on XP also? and if so how? Thank you so much
7. My friend's son has forgotten the password that he uses to get into his
laptop running Windows XP. He was the sole user so I presume he must be the
computer administrator. How do you get passed the bit that asks for a password
when you don't know what the password is?
8. My PC currently runs on Windows 98 so I would like to change the operating
system to Windows XP but am no sure how to do it. Do I have to uninstall Windows
98 before I proceed with Windows XP? Or do I just reformat my PC with XP? I
don't want to lose all my files in the process so will it help if I made backup
copies and kept it in the 2nd partitioned drive?
9. How do I restore the taskbar and desk top icons on XP that got delete/hid
somewhere? Tried regedit/deleting the file. Even tried downloading some patches
found on Ask Jeeves. Nothing worked but from searching this seems to be a common
problem. I even tried to do a restore it won't let me go back but 4 days. When I
boot on the folder with all icons showing comes up but not the desktop all that
is on it is the wallpaper. Any ideas would be a big help.
10. I note that after I conduct a search for a particular file or folder using
the search companion - (XP Home SP2) all the files or folders with that name
will appear in the search window. That's fine, but when I either use "Open
Containing Folder" or just double click on that particular file (or folder) to
open it, the search companion automatically creates a shortcut for that file
or folder that appears at the bottom of the list. Is there some way to disable
this behavior from happening so that a shortcut is not created?
