I wan telus as my home page and cannot get it


On which browser?
Chrome: Open setting, with settings the second choice (On Start up) click the third option (Open a specific or set of pages. Set Pages) Click on Set Pages. Now, here you should have a predetermine page already set up. If that is the case, roll the mouse over the link, and an X should be display at the end of the link, click it, this will delete the home page. Now just add the Telus home page.
Firefox: On the Firefox browser is open, click on the far right, the horizontal lines, a new panel opens, click on Preference, in the Homepage box just type the Telus website.
Now that you the idea, you can try the same method with others browser.
On your next question, please make sure not leave out the details.

Windows 7 Tips and Hacks


You have upgraded to Windows 7, love the new taskbar, and enjoy the power of using the cool Libraries feature. But now you want more. You want the cool tips and tricks that make Windows 7 fun! So here are the best ones to help you get the most out of your new OS. We will focus on the Windows 7 interface to get you started on the road to becoming a Windows 7 Power User.

1. Use Keyboard Shortcuts Using the mouse, you can drag-‘n-dock windows to either side of the screen, or drag it to the top to maximize it. These keyboard shortcuts are even faster:
  • Win+Left Arrow and Win+Right Arrow dock the window to the left and right side of the screen
  • Win+Up Arrow and Win+Down Arrow maximize and restore/minimize
  • Win+M minimizes everything
  • Alt+Up, Alt+Left Arrow, Alt+Right Arrow navigate to parent folder, or browse Back and Forward through folders in Explorer
  • Win+Home minimizes/restores all open windows except the active window
  • Alt+Win+# accesses the Jump List of program number ‘#’ on the taskbar

2.Rearrange System Tray Icons
You can rearrange icons on the taskbar as you wish and start new (or switch to running) instances of the first ten taskbar programs using Win+1, Win+2, and so on. The cool thing is you can also rearrange system tray icons. Reorder them on the tray or move them outside or back in the tray. Take control of what you want to always keep an eye on, and from which apps you’ll require notifications.


3. Access Jump Lists with the Left Mouse Button Jump Lists usually show up when you right-click on a taskbar icon. However, they can also be accessed by holding the left mouse button and dragging upwards. If you’re using a laptop touchpad or a touch screen, this is convenient because you do not have to click any button to access a context menu.


4. Add Any Folder to FavoritesYou can add any library or folder to the Favorites section in Windows Explorer. To add a folder, navigate to it in Explorer, right-click Favorites in the left navigation pane, and select Add current location to Favorites. Now you get quick access to your favorite folders in all File->Save As dialogs!


5. Pin Frequently Used Folders to the Taskbar Right-click, drag, and pin your favorite folders to Windows Explorer on the taskbar. They will now show up in the Jump List when you right click on Explorer giving you quick access to your favorite folders.


6. Pin Control Panel to the TaskbarYou cannot pin the Control Panel to the taskbar via the Start Menu or by drag and drop. Open the Control Panel and right-click its taskbar icon to pin it to the taskbar. An advantage of this is that Control Panel’s Jump List allows quick access to recently used functions.


7. Create Keyboard Shortcuts for Programs You can create keyboard shortcuts for any program in Windows 7. Right-click the program icon and select Properties. Select the Shortcut tab, click in Shortcut key, to set the keyboard shortcut for that program.


8. Open Command Prompt in Any Folder Like the command prompt? Miss the ‘Open Command Window Here’ Windows XP power toy? Press ‘Shift’ when right-clicking on a folder to get that option in the context menu. This also works on the desktop. No power toy required!


9. View Expanded ‘Send To’ MenuPress Shift when right-clicking on a folder to get an expanded Send To menu.


10. Adjust Screen Text with Clear Type Use Clear Type Tuner for the best look on your LCD monitor or laptop screen. Run ‘cttune.exe’ from the Start Menu search box, or go to the Control Panel Display applet, and select Adjust ClearType Text from the left.


11. Get Exact Colors On Your Screen If you are an artist or you work with colors, use the Calibrate Color option in the Control Panel Display applet or run dccw.exe from the Start Menu search box. You can adjust gamma, brightness, contrast, and color balance, ensuring that colors are displayed correctly on your screen.

12. Customize the Power Button If you restart your computer more often than you shut it down, change the default Shutdown power button to Restart. Right-click on Start, select Properties, and choose the Power button action that you use the most.

13. Customize Number of Items in Jump Lists & Start Menu google_protectAndRun("ads_core.google_render_ad", google_handleError, google_render_ad);Right-click Start, select Properties, click Customize and choose the number of recent programs to be shown in the Start Menu and the number of items displayed in Jump Lists from the Start Menu Size section below.

14. Search Internet from the Start MenuEnable Internet search from the Start Menu using your default browser. Run GPEDIT.MSC from the Start Menu search box to start the Group Policy Editor. In the left pane, go to User Configuration->Administrative Templates->Start Menu and Taskbar. In the right pane, right-click to Edit and Enable Add Search Internet link to Start Menu.


15. Add Videos to Start Menu Windows 7 does not place a link to your videos on the Start Menu by default. To add a link to your videos on the Start Menu, right-click Start, select Properties, click on Customize. In the Videos section at the bottom, choose Display as a link.

Looks like your mouse is causing the trouble. Try a different mouse if you have one lying around. Or to check, unplug the mouse when that starts to happen and check if the problem is resolved immediately. If it does, well, time to get a new mouse.

The blinking line in the address bar runs across the address bar causing my page to scroll all the way down and when i try to scroll back up the page bounces


Is this adress bar the internet search ?
This might be a mouse related problem

Make sure you have the right mouse selected click start control panel mouse hardware you will see which mouse is selected.
You might have to uninstall the mouse then restart your computer then reinstall the mouse and its drivers.

Click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to mice and other pointing devices you might see a yellow exclamation mark ! or question mark ? or a red x
Right click you will need to update the driver.

Click start control panel mouse you should see 4 tabs buttons,pointers,pointer options and hardware under hardware you have options to troubleshoot also you can select properties under driver you will have options to update driver,rollback driver or uninstall

Make sure you have the right mouse selected click start control panel mouse hardware you will see which mouse is selected in xp

I have found that the best way to adjust your mouse settings is to create a control panel in your bottom toolbar scroll to the bottom of your screen right click you will see an array of options select the toolbar option then select desktop

then you will see the desktop in the bottom toolbar select the 2 >>arrow heads then all control panel items then select mouse this is in WINDOWS 7

In XP you will have to select the new toolbar option once you have that a browse option select my computer then control panel then a control panel option will be in the bottom toolbar

For the double or single click options to open folders this will be in the folder options follow previous to get to control panel items

Click start control panel navigate folder options tick in the double click to open circle

hope this helps

I have an HP computer and HP mouse, the scroll button has a mind of it's own, jumping all over the page on it's own. How do I fix it to only scroll when I perform the task for scrolling?


I had EXACTLY the same problem with my Dell mouse. It went up and down of its own accord. I opened it, tweaked it and messed with it but to no avail. It is my painful and sad duty to tell you that your mouse is old and its time for it to meet its creator. Don't cry, it has seen good and times and had its day...but the old must depart. That is the law of the nature. I'm sure once you get to know your new mouse, you'll get along fine and be best friends in no time. Truly sorry for your loss.

How do I move every .jpg files on the whole computer to one folder using windows cmmand line.


> using the Windows command line

There's no easy way to do this, unless you can use one of the Windows "scripting" languages (BAT, Visual Basic, REXX, et cetera) to "automate" part of the task.

Instead:
Click Start
Click Search
Fill-in the "search" page to "find all *.JPG" files.
Do the search.
When the "output" window stops updating,
click once on one of the files.
Hold the 'CTRL' key down, and press/release the 'a' key,
to "select all files".
Right-mouse click on one of the files, and choose 'Cut'.
Open the folder that will become the destination.
Right-mouse click, and choose 'Paste'.

This will "move" all the selected files into that folder.

Jul 29, 2009- hello Mr. expert. i have a hplaserjet color printer cm1015 the drivers are installed correctly and pc recognize the printer but when i try to print it gives an error msg: the page failed to...


Hmm... couple of things you can here; I don't know if this is a new printer or one you've had for some time.

If the printer is one you've had previously try doing a system restore. This usually fixes about 95% of computer problems concerning peripherals. click start... mouse over all programs... mouse over accessories... mouse over system tools... click on system restore... select a date when you know the printer was functioning correctly. If you can't find system restore that way just click on help and support... go to the search bar and type system restore.

If the printer is new: completely uninstall the printer and disconnect it. After you uninstall it using the add/remove programs. click on start... click run... type c://program files. You will see a message that says these files are hidden. Just click the the link that says show the contents of this folder. once you have done that all the folders containing software that you installed will appear. look through there and see if you can find the folder for your printer should say hp laser jet or something to that effect. highlight that folder only and hit the delete button. then look to the left of that screen and you will see a link that allows you to hide those contents again. click that if you wish, there is no harm in leaving the folder contents viewable. restart your computer and re-install the software... Make sure you follow the installation instructions to the T.

Hope this helps

I have your cd player insatlled in my pc for about 2 years but have lost the icon for it so cant start it .help plz


if you know the name of the program, and where it may possibly be eg C:/program files. search that location for the folder. failing that click on start, then on search. select all files and folders, then type in the name or part of name of the program you are looking for. the system will start a search, which may take some time. when it finds files and folders with the name or part name, they will come up in a seperate window, when you see what you want, right click on it and select 'open containing folder' when that folder opens and you see the icon you are looking for right click on it and select 'send to desktop - create shortcut. thats it
good luck

Problem with my mouse.It opens everything with a single click, makes it hard to move files onto an mp3 player as it opens them rather than just selecting them.


either you have single click to open files option turned on in your Folders Option menu (start - control panel - folder options) or you have a defective mouse where the main button is somewhat stuck up. Also, you can use right click for more options of your mouse actions.
