Just adjust the Start In property in the shortcut within the Menu Tree.
Do Start > Settings > Taskbar and Start Menu. Click the Advanced tab. Click the Advanced button.
An Explorer window comes up with your menu tree as its source. In order, double-click the Programs, and then the Accessories folder. Right-click the Notepad icon and choose Properties. Type your preferred folder in the “Start In” text box, click OK and Notepad will start wherever you wish. Same procedure for WordPad.

Open Notepad (Start>Programs>Accessories>Notepad).

Copy and paste the following text into the program: lol=msgbox("",16,"Error")

Click File>Save As. 26319026-bxzhjmonsmllydp0qa2riq2g-2-9.jpg In the 'Save type as' dropdown, change the setting from 'Text Documents' to 'All files'. Then, as your file name, type your file name (when you open the file, it will trigger the popup), followed by '.vbs' (eg. Example.vbs). Then, in the 'save in' dropdown, select a place where you can access your file. When you have selected your desired place to save the file, click 'save' to save your file.

Open 'My Computer' (Start>My Computer) and find your newly-created file.
Open the file, and your error message should pop up on the screen!

How to change where screenshots are saved on Mac?

Step 1: Search for Terminal in Spotlight Search in the top-right menu bar.
Terminal App

Step 2: Open Terminal and type the following command: defaults write location ~/Documents/Screenshots

Step 3: To apply the changes, enter the following command: killall SystemUIServer

That's it. If you entered the commands successfully, your screenshots will now save to a Screenshots folder within your Documents. Make sure to actually create the folder before applying the changes through Terminal though. Also, you can type any directory that you wish to save screenshots to, as it doesn't have to be ~/Documents/Screenshots if you would prefer something else.

When i go into windows updates i get a error saying error found code 80070005 what do i do

The error code 80070005 usually means that you do not have enough permission to install updates.

First please confirm you have logged on an account with administrative privileges.

If the issue still occurs, lets' try the following method to reset the permissions:

1. Please download the subinacl.msi file from the following link and save the installation patch onto the Desktop:

2. Please go to the Desktop and double click the downloaded file.

3. Please select the C:\Windows\System32 folder as the Destination Folder during the installation. Later we will use this tool to reset the permission settings on the current machine.

Note: If the UAC (User Account Control) window is prompted for permission to continue, please click Continue.

4. Click Start, in the Start Search bar, type: "notepad" (without quotes) and press Enter.

5. Copy the following commands and then paste them into the open Notepad window:

@echo off

subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE /grant=administrators=f

subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_CURRENT_USER /grant=administrators=f

subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT /grant=administrators=f

subinacl /subdirectories %SystemDrive% /grant=administrators=f

subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE /grant=system=f

subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_CURRENT_USER /grant=system=f

subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT /grant=system=f

subinacl /subdirectories %SystemDrive% /grant=system=f

@Echo =========================

@Echo Finished.

@Echo =========================


6. After pasting the above commands, please close the Notepad window. Choose Save when you are prompted to save the file. Type "reset.bat" as the file name and choose Desktop from the left panel as the save location.

7. Refer to the Desktop and right click the reset.bat file, and then choose "Run as administrator."

8. You will see a DOS-like window processing.

Note: It may take several minutes. Please be patient. When it is completed, you will be prompted with the message: "Finished, press any key to continue".

Try to install the updates again.

This issue can be also caused by third-party security programs such as firewalls and anti-virus software. You can disable or remove them to check the issue.

How do I save Webmail messages to my pc.

Assuming you have Internet Explorer- these steps are for IE8 (in safari, opera or any other browser the exact names may change but the steps are the similar):

Click on "Page", "Save As" and chose your location for the file.

Alternately, you can highlight the text you want to save (using Hold Left Click on mouse and drag), then using keyboard hit Control+C to copy. Open Notepad (using the "Start Button/Accesories/Notepad") and type Control+V to paste --the right click and choosing "Copy and/or Paste" works too. You can then save the file using the "File" tab and "Save As". This method does not save all the formatiing but results in smaller file sizes.

What is the main function of microsoft word?

The most basic function of MS Word is to create a document/file. Once a document has been created, the user may enter data - for example by typing some text. At any point after the document has been created, the user is allowed to save the contents. The document can then be accessed at a later time and modified as necessary. Documents can be printed out at any stage in this process.

Items i download wont show up after its done downloadin. It will show up in the download box but when it is done downloading it will just disappear like if it was never downloaded. The only downloading...

I am not sure if you are referring to torrent files which are just reference links to the actual file you are downloading. If you are referring to the actual downloaded files it is most likely that they are stored in another location other than in my documents/my downloads. the location that you want your downloads to be stored can easily be changed. Xp will save it to the last location you asked it to so if you saved it in my documents it will be there, if you save it in the temp it will be there, if you want to know for definate then just download something and when says save it will bring up the location it is saving it to..if on the other hand instead of hitting save you hit run then it will save it to the temp folder.

Missing taskbar and start menu

Probably your infected. to fix the problem u can visit kelly's korner and copy all the text and then go to notepad and paste the text and then save it as "taskbar.reg" and then after saving it run it. it will prompt you if u want to add the registry information and you say yes. see if that fix's the problem. if u dont know how to open notepad without the startmenu u can try pressing windows key+r and type "notepad" and press ok. remember to save it as a .reg file.
