How do I change the default folder to save a pdf? Cheers, Steve

Every time I go to save a pdf it goes to some obscure folder buried in the C drive.

    Thanks Pablosca, but I know where they're going to. I want to know how to change the default folder to go to My Documents instead of the C drive folder.

    Cheers, Steve

    Thanks. I am a Luddite. How do I find registry editor? I have a pdf opened and I found preferences under Edit but there was nothing there about saving. Any more clues?

    Cheers, Steve

The pdf files are going to the adobe acrobat folder or to the folder "My documents" If you don't know where your files are stored, do this:

Open your windows explorer and go to search
Then type: *.pdf ---->> hit enter
This action will bring all your pdf files stored in your computer.
Just look at the path, and you will know where your files are.

    In that case you have to change the path on the adobe program going to preferences or another way is going to Registry Editor in windows.

I have a NP770Z7E-S01UB notebook. I can't get BIOS changes to stick so that I can boot from a CD.


Hi
BIOS changes are usually saved using the F10 key or going to the EXIT menu and using SAVE & EXIT. This is detailed on page 99 of the User Guide which you can download from here:-
http://downloadcenter.samsung.com/content/UM/201408/20140828134026815/Win8_Manual_eng.pdf
If you use the Esc key to leave the BIOS, your changes will not e saved.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
Cheers

Need the manual for hp pavilion notebook dv7-4008ca & downloaded


HP Support > Pavilion dv7-4008ca Notebook PC > Main Support page,

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product?cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&product=4230711


Click on Manuals in the list.

Click on -
HP Pavilion dv7 Entertainment PC - Maintenance and Service Guide
,for a Service Manual.

Click on -
Notebook PC User Guide - Windows 7
,for a User Manual

These are PDF files.
The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.
After you click on the manual file name you want, it may take up to 30 seconds before the first page comes up.
(Just wanted you to know while you are staring at a blank screen.
The file is downloading to your computer)

The download is a Temporary download. Once you close the PDF file, you have to go back, and download it again, to see it.

At the top right of the top header is a Floppy Disk icon.
It is the third icon from the left. If you hover your mouse cursor over it, Save a copy, will be briefly revealed.

Click on the Floppy Disk icon.
In the Save File box look to see where the file will download to.
Desktop: Goes to your desktop screen.
Documents: Goes to your Documents folder
Downloads: Goes to your Downloads folder.

You can click on the blue Down Arrow to the right, and in the list click on where you wish the file to download to.
I put them in my Documents folder.
(Actually I am running WinXP right now, so they go to my My Documents folder. Win Vista, and Win 7 it's -> Documents)

In the File name: box below, write down the file name.
Or,
Click in this box, and type what you want.
(Pavilion dv7 User Manual, or Pavilion dv7 Service Manual?)

Now go below, and click on Save File. (OK?)

From there put a new CD-R disk in the optical drive (CD/DVD drive), and then Right-click on the file name. Click on Copy.

The reason I do not just directly copy to disk, from the HP PDF file, is if there is a problem I want to have the file handy. I can start over.

(After checking that the disk has a good copy on it, you can then delete the file from the computer you downloaded it on, and save harddrive space on that computer)

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Regards,
joecoolvette

Boots only to bios settings, then blank screen after save and exit. will not take a cd boot.


Hello, since it can boot to bios setting, then have you try configuring the boot order,the cd drive should come first,after that your hard disc, if the hard drive comes before the cd rom then it would not recognise it. Change the settings and Save this settings, then try to boot from the cd again, if this does not work then i am rest assured that your hard drive has a problem,and you need to find solution to it by getting a new one. cheers Regards

  1. Insert the Windows XP startup disk into the floppy disk drive, or insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, and then restart the computer.
    Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD-ROM drive if you are prompted to do so.

  3. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you want to access from the Recovery Console.
  4. When you are prompted to do so, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.
  5. At the Recovery Console command prompt, type the following lines, pressing ENTER after you type each line: md tmp
    copy c:\windows\system32\config\system c:\windows\tmp\system.bak
    copy c:\windows\system32\config\software c:\windows\tmp\software.bak
    copy c:\windows\system32\config\sam c:\windows\tmp\sam.bak
    copy c:\windows\system32\config\security c:\windows\tmp\security.bak
    copy c:\windows\system32\config\default c:\windows\tmp\default.bak

  10. From the Snapshot folder, copy the following files to the C:\Windows\Tmp folder:
    • _REGISTRY_USER_.DEFAULT
    • _REGISTRY_MACHINE_SECURITY
    • _REGISTRY_MACHINE_SOFTWARE
    • _REGISTRY_MACHINE_SYSTEM
    • _REGISTRY_MACHINE_SAM
  11. Rename the files in the C:\Windows\Tmp folder as follows:
    • Rename _REGISTRY_USER_.DEFAULT to DEFAULT
    • Rename _REGISTRY_MACHINE_SECURITY to SECURITY
    • Rename _REGISTRY_MACHINE_SOFTWARE to SOFTWARE
    • Rename _REGISTRY_MACHINE_SYSTEM to SYSTEM
    • Rename _REGISTRY_MACHINE_SAM to SAM
These files are the backed up registry files from System Restore. .

Part Three loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation'); In part three, you delete the existing registry files, and then copy the System Restore Registry files to the C:\Windows\System32\Config folder:
  1. Start Recovery Console.
  2. At the command prompt, type the following lines, pressing ENTER after you type each line: del c:\windows\system32\config\sam

Have laptop that has black screen and says no boot device available every time i turn on computer. what can i do?


Boot to system system BIOS, reset defaults, save settings and reboot, see if the error goes away. If so, then the reserve battery on the mothebroard is bad. If no change, then reseat the Hard Drive, and try again. If still no change, a HDD replacement is likely

My note book compaq C714NR will not install any software. It will download but just goes away when its complete, it never gives the install options....IDK what to do


It sounds like your web browser is putting your downloads somewhere you don't want automatically. If this is the case, depending on which browser your using, try the steps below:

For Internet Explorer:
Make sure your doing save as. When you do a download, you get a dialogue box that shows you the current default folder. You can accept it as it is, or change it to something else. If you change it, the new folder will become the default in the future. I would suggest setting this to the desktop, then you can conveniently find your downloads.

For Firefox:
Select - Tools > Options > Main Tab >

From here you could specify the desktop and say "Save files to" and they will always go there
Or
You can say "Ask me every time" which will allow you to decide where they go.

Hope this was helpful.

I have a Sony RX560 computer and my hard drive has 15gb on drive "C" and 75gb on drive "D". is there a way I can use drive "D" to go on the internet and use drive "D" to download music and videos?


You're using both already at the same time.

Your hard drive was just partitioned.

Whenever you choose to save files you've got to tell windows where you want them to save, either the D: or the C:

You can also just join the partitions by using a program called Partition Magic

I'm not sure if there is a free version or another program quite like it.

If you have any more questions, let me know.

Best of luck!

Hard drive


For programs installations you would have to manually change, redirect or point the program folder locations to the Lenovo disk ( E:/ or F:/ , etc, etc).For all other personal documents, image files, music files, video files you would have to do the same thing, go that programs (whichever program you use) options or preferences and edit the default file save locations to point to the Lenovo ( E:/ or F:/ , etc, etc) instead of your C:/ drive
