Re: File storage

Converting files from any program maybe not need more high in computer. may i can suggest you should be
processor-2Ghz or better
Memory- 512 or better
HDD - 80GB or better

if you consider external drive its turn if you need more for your backup storage much better.

Re: File storage

Try storing your files online instead. you can use some free online storage like or Plus you can share it and access your files elsewhere where internet is available. This is more convenient for me. plus they are secure as well. Please dont forget to rate me. Thanks a lot.
I also had external hard drive for awhile but I dont like bringing a lot of things when I travel so online storage works best for me.

How to change an adobe reader program to microsoft word?

I am assuming you want the .pdf extension to automatically open with word instead.

To change which program starts when you double-click a file, follow these steps:
  1. Open Windows Explorer by right-clicking the Start button, and then click Explore.
  2. Click a folder that contains a file of the type that you want Windows to open in a program that you select.
  3. Right-click the file and, depending on the programs installed on your computer, complete one of the following steps:
    • Click Open With to choose the program that you want.
    • Point to Open With, and then click Choose Program to choose the program that you want.
  4. The Open With dialog box is displayed. Use one of the following methods to select the program that you want to use for this file type:
    • In the Programs list, click the program that you want to use.
    • Click Browse, locate and then click the program that you want to use, and then click Open.
    • Click Look for the appropriate program on the Web to browse the Internet for the program that you want to use.
  5. Click to select the Always use the selected program to open this kind of file check box if it is not selected.
  6. Click OK.

    Note From now on, Windows XP will open all files that have this file name extension in the program that you selected. To change this, you must follow these steps again and associate a different program with this file name extension.

My files are created in adobe pagemaker now I want them to convert in jpg or pdf format how?

1. Save the Pagemaker document. If you don't do this before proceeding, a pop-up box will remind you.

2. Go to File>Export>Adobe PDF. A dialogue box of PDF options will come up.

3. Determine what you want to use the PDF for. If you are exporting for a specific print job, the printer will give you Distiller settings. Otherwise, in Job Name, just choose the settings that most closely meet your requirements: High Quality Print for a printout, Smallest File Size for a document that will be viewed online.

4. Click "Export." An "Export PDF As" dialogue box will pop up. Choose the folder in which you wish to save the PDF, and name the file. Check the "View PDF" box, so the PDF will open after it has been created.

5. Watch the dialogue box. It should show that Distiller is creating the file. When finished, the PDF document will open.

Good Luck!

How can i convert my pagemaker file into pdf file ? any software 4 it ?

You just need some pdf converter software like nemopdf to help you do that. Once nemopdf is installed, it will creat a pdf printer driver in your computer. All you need to do is select the "print" command from pagemaker and then you would get the converted file.

Hope that helps. ;)

I first scanned all the docs into the picture gallery. My professor needs them all in pdf format. How? I've got an HP Pavilion laptop. My professor's waiting for me to call her tonight when...

PDF format means legal form which is handled in Adobe Acrobat. You said you scanned your docs into the picture gallery, and I am hoping that you left them in the default format that your scanner uses instead of changing them to a picture format (like JPEG, or TIFF) or this may be too complicated to assist via email.

If you do not have the latest version of Adobe Acrobat & Adobe Reader, do a search on the internet and download then install them. They are free. Once the programs are installed, open Adobe Acrobat and click on "file" at the top left side of the screen and try and open one of the documents you saved in the picture gallery in the acrobate program. If they are compatible, all you have to do is rename and save the document in Adobe. To save it, after you have opened it in Adobe - click on file and then "save a copy" or "save as" and choose whatever the documents name is and .pdf at the end (save to a pdf format) and then you are done.

If the file format of the documents are not compatible and will not open and easily save in PDF format using the Acrobat, then I would suggest asking your teacher for an extension.

Good luck!

Sometimes when I print .pdf file the computer request me put the file name instead of printing

this happens when you have selected a PDF printer instead of the real Physical Printer for printing

a PDF printer is a software which converts any thing sent out like a document or file for printing into a PDF file tis is useful for saving data from files or majorly from websites and emails as a softcopy on your system.

next time on, when printing check to see that the selected printer on default is a Physical Printer (like HP or Cannon etc.) connected to your computer and you'll have your hard copies

hope could be of help, cheers

How do I get PDF converter 5.2 to save files as WOrd .doc not docx?

It should be an option when you click save.
I have no knowledge of this product, but you could open in word and save as a doc file.
If you have word 2003 or earlier, you can download a free file to enable word 2003 to open docx files.
Sorry i could not be more helpful

I need drive for transcend d33193 usbdrive

I think this is a Windows 98 forum. If so, I may have a solution.

Download and install this free (Generic Storage USB Device) driver named "wtgenusb-zip" from Register with for free membership. Use their search tools using keywords like "Window 98", "USB", "Storage" and look for "wtgenusb-zip".

It's a rediculously small file to download, only 11Kb. The "zip" file must be extracted which can be done on any computer running Windows XP, then copy the files over on a floppy disk. However extracting it on a computer running Windows 98 will require a seperate program like "Winzip" or "Pkunzip" (for DOS).

Copy the extracted files to any folder of your choice on your Win98 machine. Use the "Install Hardware Wizard" to navigate to that folder to install the driver to enable your USB storage device.

WTGENUSB worked great for me, permitting my Win98 to access my USB Flash drives, 250Gb Portable hard drive, and Digital Camera card reader. Good luck.
