Both the command helps to save a file. But the difference is: when you press save button the file will be save in the default format and the default location (my document folder). However, one can still make any changes before pressing save button. But if you select save as button then system will ask to choose file format and you can also specify location to save that particular file. Yes both of these commands are used for saving files and these are available in the file menu.

    I want to change what a key types e.g. the numeral 2 key has the @ sign but you need to use the ctrl key to get it. I want to use the shift key to get it.

    Create a shortcut

    Open the folder or directory that contains the program you wish to create a shortcut for.

    Right-click on the program and click Create Shortcut.

    This will create a shortcut named "Shortcut to <your program> in the directory you are in. If you wish to rename this shortcut, right-click the file and click rename.

    Once the above steps have been completed, you can copy or cut this shortcut and paste it anywhere to execute this program.

    Assign shortcut key to that Windows shortcut

    Once the shortcut has been created to assign a shortcut key to that Windows shortcut follow the below steps.

    Right-click the shortcut and click Properties.

    Click the Shortcut tab.

    Click in the Shortcut key box and press a letter. For example, if you press "p" the shortcut key will automatically be made Ctrl + Alt + P. Which means if saved when pressing Ctrland Alt and "P" all at the same time will run that shortcut.



    MapKeyboard enables you to remap your keyboard and alter any key to function as a different one or optionally disable it as well.

    The program can be quite useful for laptop users and people with keyboards that differ from the standard

    hope this helps

    ALL folder turned into shortcuts and i really don't know how to get back my stuff. You know the hard drive has music shortcut document shortcut. Somebody help me.

    You must have had them all selected and then dragged them somewhere, then maybe dragged back, creating shortcuts at that location. This could be done accidentally by holding the ALT key (or if that key is stuck down) while dragging them back or by holding the right mouse button instead of the left. If it was the right-button thing though, you would have had to also left-click on 'Create Shortcut' on the menu that popped up.

    If this is what happened your 'real' folders will be wherever you dragged TO and the shortcuts will be wherever you dragged BACK to.

    The fact that there are shortcuts is not alarming. Your originals must be somewhere! Use the Search function to search for any file or folder name you can remember. Start at the root of the system (My Computer) to search everything; it could take a while so be patient. When you find the missing folders just select them all and drag back to where they belong (or Cut from current location, Paste in new location).

    My word 2003 shortcut keys are not responding ?

    Try restoring shortcut keys to their original (default)settings.

    Open Winword.

    1.On the Tools menu, click Customize.
    2.Click Keyboard.
    3.In the Save changes in box, click the current document name or template (template: A file or files that contain the structure and tools for shaping such elements as the style and page layout of finished files. For example, Word templates can shape a single document, and FrontPage templates can shape an entire Web site.) that contains the shortcut key (shortcut key: A function key or key combination, such as F5 or CTRL+A, that you use to carry out a menu command. In contrast, an access key is a key combination, such as ALT+F, that moves the focus to a menu, command, or control.) assignments you want to restore.
    4.Click Reset All.

    Note:- Reset All removes your customized shortcut key assignments and restores the original Microsoft Word shortcut key assignments in the selected template or document.

    Hope it will help.

    Sibelius 5 keeps shutting down when I save

    Try a system restore point prior to the date you started experiencing issues and see if the registry repair does the trick. If your Vista software has a repair facility, use it. Otherwise it is an OS issue and you may have to reload the machine from scratch using the recovery software that came with it. No software? - if so, in deep doo doo.
