  2. Re: Scheduled shutdown-PST files (Outlook 2003)

    PsKill works great, called by a batch file that I'll put in the scheduler for tonight (although there is a long lag-10-15 sec) to kill the tray icon....but that's great for me.

    I tried it with FF...
  3. Re: Scheduled shutdown-PST files (Outlook 2003)

    Yes, I know about that, but I'd rather not run another backup too. (XP Home on my laptop, so taskkill doesn't work anyway)
    The psts are just part of the routine data files backup, which I've managed...

    Re: backup signatures (2003/2007)

    Thanks for the tip Joe. Only problem is I'll be ctl-clicking all dialogs to see what else happens....so far nothing. <img src=/S/doh.gif border=0 alt=doh width=15 height=15>
  6. Re: More information in suggestions box (Fx3)

    Just to add my 2 pennies, I'm not using the toolbar...just the normal FF3 Google pane. To be able to see all of the prompted suggestions not cut off, I just drag the Google pane wider by left...

    Re: DOS Window (Win Pro XP)

    I may be late on this. John posted a shot of the DOS (CMD) properties. I find that if I change the window size I can get a full screen(mostly in std view, and completely in maximize). When leaving...

  9. Re: (Metapad) Default Folder on Save (XP Pro SP2)

    Looks like you got your answer, but you might try this next time this sort of thing happens:

    Re: Windows explorer

    Anyone tried to move these to a separate folder, to at least hide them?
    It bugs me to page through them each time I explore the windows folder.

    Hope I'm not jumping in too late, but if SyncToy does not work out, you might want to look at SyncBack. There's a free version...

    Re: Changing default location of 'Save as'

    Cool....

    My work version is XP, and my old version was '97. In '97 I hated the outlook bar and kept it off until I learned that I could set up an icon linked to folders in the real file system. That allowed...

    Europe has a different video standard for VHS, and I noticed recently, for compact flash.(Pal vs NHTS, I think). Might there be a different standard for DVD, since they play on TV's?
