It will disappear if you try to press shortcut key to capture the current screen. Even if you press <code>Print Screen</code> key, it will disappear too, making it tricky to capture the window.</p> <p>Right now, I have to record my window to <em>capture</em> the IME window (see GIF below), which I am not very satisfied.</p> <p><img src="https://s2.ax1x.com/2019/02/17/kymgxS.gif" alt="kymgxS.gif"></p> <p>Is there a direct way to capture this window?</p> http://asianhospital.com/?id=q/1406669 0 Why do I have a small unallocated space at the end of my storage device? swingcake http://asianhospital.com/?id=users/764827 2019-02-17T07:25:29Z 2019-02-17T07:53:21Z <p><a href="https://i.stack.imgur.com/UOued.jpg" rel="nofollow noreferrer"><img src="https://i.stack.imgur.com/UOued.jpg" alt="enter image description here"></a></p> <p>As can be seen in the photo above I have 1.3MB of unallocated space near the end of the storage.

Sam http://asianhospital.com/?id=users/58083 2016-07-31T12:35:25Z 2019-02-17T05:02:35Z <p>How to boot <em>STRAIGHT</em> to the desktop on Windows 10 WITHOUT ever seeing the "Logging you now in" screen?</p> <p>This <a href="http://www.itproportal.com/2015/02/09/get-rid-microsoft-windows-10s-login-screen/" rel="nofollow noreferrer">link</a> removes the necessity for the password authenticication (check!)<br> This <a href="https://www.reddit.com/r/Windows10/comments/3er06p/how_to_disable_welcome_screen/" rel="nofollow noreferrer">link</a> for Win8 disables showing the login (check! but nothing changes on Win10!)</p> <p>When Windows 10 boots, I still see twice (2 second counts) showing the login screen once (static background below) then automatically logging me in with the round "in progresss" circle dots animation. </p> <p>That means screen fading effect from black "dos" into this useless screen, then fade out, and fading back in to the loading of the destop which all togeher takes 2 seconds and oh so ugly.</p> <p>How to bypass seeing the login screens all together and going straight from the black dos screen to the desktop?</p> <p>Bottom line: I don't want to ever see the logging screen during post!

Teknowledgist http://asianhospital.com/?id=users/671995 2019-02-17T04:06:19Z 2019-02-17T04:10:07Z <p>I have a PowerShell script that runs via a periodic scheduled task and throws up a notification on the screen. How can I identify if the computer is currently giving a presentation to prevent that or delay it until the presentation is over? </p> <p>I don't think this is identifying the official "Presentation Mode" because that is (theoretically) only for laptops. </p> <p>Is there some kind of identifiable "do-not-disturb" state when PowerPoint (or LibreOffice Impress) or Acrobat or Skype or something else in a full-screen mode for a presentation?</p> http://asianhospital.com/?id=q/1403629 1 Script to archive folder and rename files Ovaryraptor http://asianhospital.com/?id=users/582541 2019-02-08T18:40:35Z 2019-02-17T00:46:46Z <p>My goal is to have a .bat that I can use to automatically archive folders via copy, rename the original folder and the files within with the current date and then clean out old production files.</p> <ol> <li>Copy target folders to the <em>"Completed"</em> directory </li> <li>Update date on the source folders using the format <code>Previous Name_Today's Date</code> (MMDDYY)</li> <li>Update the date of the INDD files within the source folder using the format <code>Current Name_Today's Date</code> (MMDDYY)</li> <li><em>"Clean"</em> the source folder by deleting all .VPS and .PDFs files within the source folder</li> </ol> <p>I am a novice but I have pieced together this code from research and sources:</p> <pre><code>@echo off setlocal enabledelayedexpansion for /f "skip=1" %%x in ('wmic os get localdatetime') do if not defined MyDate set MyDate=%%x set today=%MyDate:~0,4%-%MyDate:~4,2%-%MyDate:~6,2% xcopy /s /e /q /y "G:\...\Annual_*" "G:\...\_DONE\" xcopy /s /e /q /y "G:\...\Life_*" "G:\...\_DONE\" MOVE "G:\...\Annual_*" "G:\...\Annual_today" MOVE "G:\...\Life_today" "G:\...\Life_today" FOR /M *.indd /C "cmd /c rename @file \"@fname - today.indd\"" del /s "G:\...\Annual_today" *.pdf del /s "G:\...\Annual_today" *.vps del /s "G:\...\Life_today" *.pdf del /s "G:\...\Life_today" *.vps "G:\...\New_Job.bat" &gt; output.txt </code></pre> <p>My end goal is to be able to change the directory path for the source and archive folders so I can reuse this script for different clients files.</p> <hr> <h2>Current Issues</h2> <p>As it stands the script doesn't copy and create an archive folder files and just, deletes all VPS and PDF files from all directories, not just the target folder.</p> <p>I'm not sure if I'm performing the date check correctly to then use it as a variable to rename future folders and files. </p> <p>I don't know if <code>FOR /M *.indd /C "cmd /c rename @file \"@fname - today.indd\""</code> is correct to rename the files.

It automatically checks the working state of several devices. I recently added a "menu" at the start of the script, prompting the user to select specific items to query from a list. The list, however, is too long to see without scrolling.</p> <p>Rather than refining my list, what can I <strong>add to the batch</strong> to start the Windows shell maximized? I tried to cheat and <code>Right click the .bat -&gt; Properties -&gt; Change the "Run" state to "Maximized"</code>, but this option does not exist (and frankly I'd rather add this feature within the script itself).</p> <p>The machines that are running the script are running Windows 7</p> http://asianhospital.com/?id=q/1200316 2 I disabled SMB1.

They are still available by using <code>\\COMPUTER\...</code> which, I guess, involves a DNS lookup, but they are not listed automatically.</p> <ul> <li>What graphical or non-graphical (<code>cmd</code>, PowerShell) ways are there on Windows 10 to list remote machines which offer shares?</li> <li>Does running with or without a Domain change the available options?</li> </ul> http://asianhospital.com/?id=q/1406571 0 batch that delete text between two specified points Camillo Gatto http://asianhospital.com/?id=users/570065 2019-02-16T20:45:12Z 2019-02-16T20:45:12Z <p>I would like do a batch that delete all the text present between in_point and out_point of a example.txt like this</p> <pre><code>bla bla lba aaa uuu in_point jhfwjeblwqblf out_point bla bla bla abc cfgr qwerty ecc... </code></pre> <p>so the batch have to delete only jhfwjeblwqblf (but it's variable, it can be more or less: the batch however have to delete all).

I installed CYGWIN, but it seems linux uses a environmental variable called PYTHONPATH, which the default installation of Python on Windows doesnt have.</p> <p>I attempted to add this environmental variable in Windows by creating a system variable as such:</p> <pre><code>Variable name: PYTHONPATH Variable Value: C:\Users\Moondra\AppData\Local\Programs\Python\Python36\Scripts;C:\Python27\;C:\Python27\Scripts; </code></pre> <p>Now if I run this (below) on CYGWIN, I get the following ("command not found"):</p> <pre><code>$ $PYTHONPATH bash:C:\Users\Moondra\AppData\Local\Programs\Python\Python36\Scripts;C:\Python27\;C:\Python27\Scripts;: command not found </code></pre> <p>It seems to be printing out the paths, but I am also getting a command not found error. I don't know how to resolve this issue.</p> <p>Thank you. </p> http://asianhospital.com/?id=q/820223 0 Snapshot of system without virtual machine Daniel Hilgarth http://asianhospital.com/?id=users/69162 2014-10-03T08:39:57Z 2019-02-16T20:37:58Z <p><strong>Background:</strong><br> I am a software developer and work on several projects in parallel. Because of this, I use virtual desktops, one per project.<br> I never restart my computer - only hibernate or sleep - because I have a huge amount of programs running.</p> <p><strong>Problem:</strong><br> I am using VMware for my day-to-day virtualisation needs.<br> Developing for Windows Phone requires Hyper-V to be active.<br> Only one virtualisation solution - VMware or Hyper-V - can be active at any given time. To switch between them, a restart is required.<br> I want to avoid that.</p> <p><strong>Possible solution:</strong><br> A possible solution would be to snapshot the current state of my machine - the physical and virtual memory - and after that, activate Hyper-V and perform the reboot. When I am finished developing the Windows Phone application, I would re-enable VMware, reboot and restore the snapshot.<br> Basically, it would be like a backed-up hibernation state.</p> <p><strong>Question:</strong><br> Is something like that possible?</p> http://asianhospital.com/?id=q/273738 1 Adding a Windows 7 machine to a Windows 2000 peer-to-peer network (through hub) Craft http://asianhospital.com/?id=users/77720 2011-04-21T15:55:21Z 2019-02-16T18:01:30Z <p>We have three Windows 2000 machines talking through a hub, and we are trying to upgrade so we bought a Windows 7 machine to add to the network. All of the Win2K machines can access the public directory on the Windows 7 machine, but the Windows 7 machine cannot access the other Win2K machines -- we just keep getting a pop-up asking for network user name and password.</p> <p>Any suggestions?</p> http://asianhospital.com/?id=q/1341037 1 PowerShell Limit Keys Accepted By Pause Script ereHsaWyhsipS http://asianhospital.com/?id=users/870501 2018-07-17T22:50:18Z 2019-02-16T17:26:34Z <p>Putting the following lines at the end of a PowerShell script has the following functionality:</p> <pre><code> if($Host.Name -eq "ConsoleHost") { Write-Host "Press any key to continue..." -NoNewline $Host.UI.RawUI.ReadKey("NoEcho,IncludeKeyUp") &gt; $null } </code></pre> <ol> <li>If I run the script by right clicking on it, going to "Run with PowerShell," then the console window stays open for me until I press any key to continue.</li> <li>If I already have a PowerShell window open and I run the script from within this window, then although the "Press any key to continue" text still appears, I don't actually have to press anything to continue; it does this on its own. Hence, I can immediately run something else afterward.</li> </ol> <p>I like this behavior, but I would prefer to limit it to a specific subset of keys (or even just a single key, such as the enter key), if possible. Using read-host doesn't work then I still have to enter input even when running from another PowerShell window; <strong>the goal is to simply stop the window from closing when I run it from the context menu.</strong> I shouldn't have to input anything when running from an already-existing PowerShell console.</p> <p>Basically, I like the functionality of the code I have above, but I want to limit the keys it applies to.</p> <p>Is it possible to achieve this? If so, how?</p> http://asianhospital.com/?id=q/1406509 -2 How to Make a File Undetectable by Antivirus? [on hold] Ethan Waldeck http://asianhospital.com/?id=users/957802 2019-02-16T16:35:46Z 2019-02-16T16:35:46Z <p>Alright, so, I have a software / program that I am making, and program uses many different EXE files to function. The EXE files were made from Batch, I just used a BAT to EXE converter to turn them into EXE files, so that they can run invisibly.</p> <p>The problem here, is that my anti-virus (Malwarebytes Premium) is detecting them as malware, and removing them. Now, if I were using the program I'm making for just my computer, then I could just add exclusions to the files and move on with my day. However, I plan on having the software used by a couple hundred people, and it just wouldn't be practical for each and every person to go out of their way and add an exclusion for the files, because I want the experience of them using my software to be enjoyable, and not have to be a hassle.</p> <p>So, how do I make those EXE files undetectable by anti-virus?</p> http://asianhospital.com/?id=q/1314420 4 How to unzip a file using the cmd?

This drive is only used for games, it has never contained an OS.</p> <p>Running chkdsk it reports that </p> <blockquote> <p>468718591 KB total disk space</p> <p>415493328 KB in 64379 files</p> </blockquote> <p>I am running a new instance of Windows 10 Pro with no changes to any default settings. The SSD was used with previous installations of Windows so I suspect that there are old system files which my current Windows instance won't show me.</p> <p><strong>The files take up 314 GiB but 393 GiB have been used. What could be taking up 74 GiB of space which isn't visible in Windows Explorer on a new vanilla Windows installation?</strong></p> <p>EDIT 1:</p> <p>The disk contains a single partition which is 447 GiB as reported by Disk Management in Windows.</p> <p>It appears that the partition is allocated the right amount, and that the free space Windows Explorer reports matches what chkdsk reports. The 15% discrepancy is between the size of visible files in Windows Explorer and size of files reported by chkdsk.</p> <p>EDIT 2:</p> <p>The space used by the visible files in Windows Explorer is 343,374,991,368 bytes. The space used by all files as calculated in chkdsk and the drive properties in Windows is 423,015,841,792 bytes. A difference of approximately equal to 73 GiB. The missing 73 GiB is not counting in 1000 vs 1024 as it is present when counting only in bytes.</p> <p>EDIT 3:</p> <p>Within the partition was a set of old system files from a previous installation of Windows. When viewed through Explorer they had a size of 0 B but <a href="https://jam-software.com/treesize_free/" rel="nofollow noreferrer">Tree Size Free</a> revealed had large file size.</p> http://asianhospital.com/?id=q/581016 0 Can't install Windows 7 from USB user2179088 http://asianhospital.com/?id=users/0 2013-04-10T13:50:20Z 2019-02-16T11:01:15Z <p>Computer:</p> <pre><code>Samsung 350v5c-s04 windows 8 (64bit) CPU: i5 3210m HDD: 1 TB (5.4kr sata) </code></pre> <p>As you can see, there was Windows 8 installed.</p> <p>I created bootable Windows 7 USB and tried to install it.

So it should look like this? So the buttons must stay always in the left part and the minimized windows on the right.
