Re: Saving documents from the internet to 'My Documents'

It will usually do it automatically. Have you looked in all the folders in my documents? Also, if you can't get it to do it automatically, go to save as, choose my documents then click save. It should be there.

I want to create new folders from my documents in my computer how do I do it

get the desk top screen up
right click anywhere on a vacant patch that brings up a drop down box where you will see new folder
click on that and that folder appears on the desktop screen
rename it to suit what you want to call that folder
then when yo need a document saved -save to desktop and then move that file into the named folder
if you have documents already in say my documents click and hold and drag that file to the appropriate folder on desktop
if you have just the one monitor , get into the library area and open up my documents the drag each document to the folder in the library drop down area
Basic I know but with a bit of practice you will get to moving documents to folders very quickly

I need a 25-character product key for microsoft office home and student 2007 to load in my laptop please?

If your are not very particular in using MS office there is a very easy answer. Forget this MS office thing. Download Click the link below
It is absoultely free. And works way better than MS office in my opinion. You don't need to search around for a product key. However, it saves a doucment in .odt format instead of your regular .doc format. But there is no need for worry. If you need to send a file to anyone who can only read a .doc file open office provides you the option to save it in .doc format. Which solves the problem if any. Try it once an you may never think of MS office ever. Open office also gives you the option of saving a document directly into PDF format. So any one who recieves it cannot edit it, if you want uneditable documents to be sent to somebody. With MS office you need to buy a new software to achieve this. More money wasted. Like wise XL/ presentations/database type documents are saved in the open document formats, but open office gives you the option to save all of these in the MS office default formats. It has much better selection of fonts and clipart/galleries too.Good luck and have fun.

Toshiba A100 will not automatically save data to the 2nd drive

Close all documents and running programs. Locate your Documents Folder on your C: Drive. Right Click and select Properties. Change Taget Folder Location by replacing C: with E:, then click OK. Answer Yes to move all of the files from the old location to the new location. This will migrate all Documents to E:, and set the save path to this drive by defualt. Thus freeing space on drive C: and leaving it for applications and updates only. You may also want to run the Disk Cleanup utility to free even more space from drive C:.

I want to transfer a typed page from Windows office to usb flash drive thanks

you have to save the typed page as a document. These are usually saved to "My Documents" but you can go to "File" and then click on "save as" and it will bring up a window. The default location is in "My Documents" in the top part of the window. Click the drop down box and choose your flash drive instead. Give the document a name if it doesn't already have one and hit the save key.

Read only documents

Any folders and documents under a read only folder will inherit the permissions from the parent directory.

Try copying a few files out of where ever you are saving them to and correct the permissions on a totally different spot on your directory stucture.

Also make sure that administrators and everyone are in the permissions with all the permissions checked boxed.

Low space

Have you tried clearing the "Temp" and the "Prefetch" folders?
Go to Start -> Run

Type - "temp" (without the quotes) in the run dialog and delete all files with Shift+Delete.
Repeat the same operation with the prefetch folder. (Type prefetch instead of temp now)

It should be able to clear just a few MBs.

Also, I would recommend uninstalling any unwanted software that you may have installed on your system.

Also, as it is evident from your above post, you have been saving a lot of stuff in the My Documents folder. I would hereby recommend saving large files on the C Drive(D) drive so a balance would be maintained.
