Hi There! I am having problem opening my hp director program


  1. Open HP Director using one of the following methods:
    • From the desktop : On your computer's desktop, look for the HP Director icon (c01425509.gif), and then double-click it.
    • From the Windows taskbar : Click Start , click All Programs , click the HP orHewlett-Packard folder, and then click HP Director .
    Although HP Director does not appear to be open , it is open and loaded into the computer's memory, but it does not open in a new window as usual.
  2. Without navigating to another open window, press Alt and Space bar at the same time. The Shortcut menu displays near the top-left corner of the computer. Figure 1: Shortcut menuc00833293.gif If the Shortcut menu does not open, repeat steps 1 and 2 until it does.
  3. Select Minimize from the Shortcut menu.HP Director displays (minimizes) as an item on the taskbar (the row of open software programs that appears at the bottom of the desktop screen). If HP Director does not minimize, click Minimize again until it does.
  4. Click the HP Director icon on the taskbar . The software opens and functions normally.

Missing battery indicator in the task bar


Hi,

No this is more typical with Windows Vista users as updates can disable the icons from the notification bar.

Chose 'taskbar' tab, then click 'customize' and chose the option for the battery icon and change to 'show' .


If you need anymore help please post back.


Regards.

Can't see language bar


First try this: Right click your mouse while aiming it at the lower right of the task bar, but not inside the notification window (where the icons appear in the right of your task bar). You should see a menu titled Toolbars. Click on this and put a check mark next to the Language Bar heading. The language bar should pop up instantly next to the notification area.

If that doesn't work, do the following:
Open the Start menu, and go to control panel. If you haven't already selected it, choose use classis menu, then choose regional and language options and click on this to open.
You should now see a window that is titles REgional and Language options, and has a box at the top with Text services and input languages. Click on the Details button. This will open another window on your desktop, titled "Text Services and Input Languages" At the bottom of this window is a button titled "Language Bar". Click on this button to open the Language Bar Settings, and select your preference. It's possible you may have to reboot your system to get the language bar to update. If so, just trigger a restart when you go to shut down. The language bar will appear at the lower right of your task bar
