File names of common Windows applications


Windows operating systems have many useful programs that come built-in and ready to go. These programs can typically be accessed by navigating through the Start menu or opening the Control Panel (or by typing their names in the Search bar if you have Vista). But sometimes you may want to pin the program to your Start menu or create a shortcut on your desktop, so that you can access it quicker and not have to hunt it down every time you want to run it. In order to do that, you'll need to know the program's file name and where to find it (unless you're running Vista, in which case you can use the instant search feature).

Below are some common Windows programs and their respective file names. Each of these files can be found in the \Windows\System32 folder. (The locations may vary on a 64-bit system.)

Command Prompt = cmd.exe
Computer Management = compmgmt.msc
Device Manager = devmgmt.msc
Disk Defragmenter = dfrg.msc
Disk Management = diskmgmt.msc
Services = services.msc
Task Manager = taskmgr.exe

Another useful file to be able to find is the explorer.exe file. Sometimes when the system locks up or a program freezes, your taskbar and/or desktop shortcuts will disappear. Rather than reboot the computer, you can run the explorer.exe file and "refresh" the Windows desktop. The explorer.exe file is located in the \Windows folder.

You can find these files by opening My Computer, selecting the C: drive, and then going to the Windows folder and then the System32 folder (unless you're looking for explorer.exe). Once you've located the file you want, you can right click on it and select either "Pin to Start menu" or "Create shortcut" to make it easier to access in the future.

Games Explorer link does not work in Windows 7 or Vista.


To open the Windows Vista games folder, you'd normally click on the Games Explorer link in the Start Menu.
You have to ensure that it appears there in the first place.
If it doesnt appear, Click Start > Rt Click > Properties > Start Menu tab > Customize > Select Games > Display as a link or Display as a menu > OK > Apply > OK
Incidentally, if you type Shell:Games in Vista's start menu search bar and hit enter, then too the games folder will open.
google_protectAndRun("ads_core.google_render_ad", google_handleError, google_render_ad); But if the Games Explorer folder does not open in your Windows Vista, here is what you may try.
Type cmd in Vista's start menu. When cmd appears as a result, rt click on it and select Run as administrator.
In the elevated command prompt, type
regsvr32.exe gameux.dll and hit Enter. This will re-register the ganeux dll file.
It should help.

Tool bar for computer gone how do i find tool bars in my computer


"FILE, EDIT or VIEW" options on the top.

  1. Open Internet Explorer, and make sure that it is running properly. If you receive any error messages upon opening it, your best bet is to reinstall Explorer rather than customize the options as new add-ons have likely caused serious problems. If it runs properly, however, continue to the next step.
  2. Check to see that the menu bar is visible. If the menu bar is missing, you will have to make it reappear. Right-click anywhere below the "Title Bar" (the bar which shows the Internet Explorer icon and the name of the current website) and any other visible menu bars. Then be sure that the "Menu Bar" has a check mark beside it on the window that appears. Click "Menu Bar" if there is no check.
  3. Click on "View" in the menu bar. Then click on "Toolbars" from that menu. This will bring up a list of available tool bars. To make the one you want appear, simply click its name, making sure that a check appears next to the name.
  4. Restart Internet Explorer. Some toolbars will reappear immediately. Others require a restart. But restart the application anyway to make sure that your new preferences are saved.
  5. Reinstall any extra toolbar applications if they do not appear in the Toolbar menu.
Please try this and see if anything help's.

Computer doesn't connect with the walkman


There should be a small reset button on the back of the unit. You'll have to push and hold it for about 5 - 10 seconds in order to reset it.
If it still doesn't work, you can read the solution posted at WarMaiden.org and see if that will solve your problem of not being able to see it in Windows Explorer.

Adobe reader tries to open zip files in Vista


For some reason or another your file associations got screwed up. To get it back to the default behavior, open Windows Explorer and right-click on any .zip file you have on your system. Select Open With -> Choose default program... from the context menu. This will bring up a dialog that will allow you to choose between a couple of programs. If Windows Explorer is not there, click on the Browse button, select C:\Windows\explorer.exe and click on Open. (This is generally faster than waiting for the Other Programs portion of the dialog box to populate.) Make sure the checkbox is selected next to 'Always use the selected program to open this kind of file' so it will permanently change the file association in the registry. Click on the OK button to complete the change.

Where is windows explorer on windows xp version 2002 series pack 3


Hi,
Windows Explorer is an application that provides detailed information about your files, folders, and drives. You can use it to see how your files are organized and to copy, move, and rename files, as well as perform other tasks pertaining to files, folders, and drives. There are several ways to get to Windows Explorer. The simplest way is to right-click the Start menu or the My Computer icon and select Explore. If your keyboard has a Windows logo key, you can press Win-e to launch Windows Explorer. Alternatively, you can access it from the Start menu as described below.
Windows Me, 2000, XP, and Vista From the Start menu, select Programs or All Programs, then Accessories, and then Windows Explorer. Thank you........

Windows Vista Start Menu


  • Have you checked the default ( *.msstyles) file in the C:WINDOWSResourcesThemesaero.msstyles
  • To edit the start menu you should have Resource Hacker.exe which can be freely downloaded from http://angusj.com/resourcehacker/
  • To actually edit the file Open ResourceHacker.exe and go to File menu, Open...(option)
  • An Open file dialog box appears .
  • Navigate to the specified directoy and if the file is not shown ; select All Files(*.*) from the Files of Type dropdown Menu.
  • Now you should be able to see aero.msstyles (or whichever is the default *.msstyles file)
  • Click on that file and click on Open.
  • Unlike windows XP *.msstyles files you will not be able to see the bitmaps anywhere.
  • So all you have to do is click on Bitmaps on the left side of the tree view of ResourceHacker and select BITMAPS and go to Action menu ; Save [BITMAP] Resources and change the filename to *.bin
  • Note:save the files in a folder or there will be a large no of files in the wrong place.
  • Close Resource Hacker and Create A New Batch file(Create a text file & rename it as *.bat) in the current folder(where the *.bin files are
  • Edit the batch file and paste the following code: rename *.bin *.png
  • Save and run the batch file.
  • Instead of *.bin files you will see many *.png files
  • All these files are actually being used by windows Vista's explorer.exe
  • Among these files you have to search & find all the files which make up the Start Menu of Vista.
  • The only problem is that not only VISTA but even XP's Start Menu is made up of different images (AND not a single bitmap).So finding all the images takes time.But once you have done it, it's easy to customise the start menu.
  • If at all you want to change the images ,you have got to have a image editor and Use ResourceHacker.exe to replace the corresponding Binary files and save it as (say)aero1.msstyles.
  • To apply the theme you must find by googling, a uxtheme patcher which will let windows VISTA to use multiple themes and of-course a win Vista activator.

I hope I've tried my best to tell you all about windows Vista's Start Menu.Any questions can be mailed at:bhaskar_longhorn@yahoo.co.in
