Grrrr! Windows 8 Is At It Again......

30 October 2014 - 07:46 AM

It seems that gremlins from Microsoft were at it this past week.  All of a sudden things have changed when I use the file explorer, which I always use.  Before when I opened it up at the very top was  a file called 'Libraries' and under that were files called: Documents, Downloads, Music, and a few others.  Now when you highlight 'Libraries' Documents is listed on the right side.  Downloads is gone.  Who knows where those files have gone to.  I guess only the gremlins know.  :disappearing-smilie:

Then when you open Documents, all the files show up according to the alphabet: 0-9, A-H, I-P, etc.  Very annoying to say the least.  Have I mentioned how I hate Windows 8? :angry2: :angry2: :angry2:

 

I'm going to try to call Microsoft and see if I can get some help with changing it back to the way it was.  I doubt it, but its worth a try.  If anyone has any answers, I'd appreciate their help.  :throw:


East Coast Meetup Planned -- Mad Scrappers

24 October 2014 - 09:39 AM

Theresa (teecee) and I were talking about the fun we had at the meetup we went to in 2010 in PA.  We were called the Mad Scrappers, and we still are.  So I'm asking everyone who is in the area, or beyond, if they would be interested in attending one here in New York.  We were thinking about  March or April 2015.  Easter is April 5th, and Passover is April 3rd.  Daylight Savings Time begins on March 8th, so we'll have more daylight hours.  The weekend would be Friday, Saturday and head for home on Sunday (or Monday).  The New York Botanical Garden will be having its annual Orchid Show February 28 to April 19, 2015.  We can go into Manhattan one day and take a cruise around Manhattan Island, walk around Central Park.

 

Once we get a formal count of who will be attending, I'll be checking into hotels/motels/inns to see what kind of prices we would be talking about for rooms and if they have a conference room for us to hold our scrap meeting in.  

 

Anyone interested please sign up in this thread and what weekend would be good for you.

More Problems With Pse13

11 October 2014 - 07:01 AM

I tried to uninstall PSE13 and received an error message saying that my uninstall encountered errors.  Then it lists some troubleshooting tips:  1)Restart computer -- did that    2)Exit all applications including startup items, virus checking and firewall software -- don't know how to do that   3)uninstall again -- did that

Then it says that you may also download & run Cleaner Tool and if the problem persists, contact Customer Support for further assistance.  That's a joke.  Tried to download and run the cleaner tool -- didn't work.  Seems that it's only for Creative Cloud.  And contacting Customer Support is no help at all.

 

I'm at a loss as to what to do now.  Anybody have any ideas on how to exit all applications as listed in 2)above?

 


Can't Open Psd Files

08 October 2014 - 08:43 AM

Up until today I was able to open any PSD file by clicking on 'Open' and it would automatically open in PSE12.  Now all of a sudden, it keeps asking me 'How do you want to open this file'.  I choose PSE12, but nothing happens.  The same screen pops up.  If I click on 'Open With' a box pops up with 'Choose Default Program', which I click and then that stupid box 'How do you want to open this file' pops up again.  But nothing happens.

 

It's driving me crazy, as I don't know what happened between yesterday and today.  Can anyone help?

I found this 'funny' somewhere and thought that you gals would get a kick out of it.
