I'm trying to get rid of these new keyboard layouts but I absolutely cannot find an option to remove them ANYWHERE - not in Control Panel, not in Settings...</p> <p>I have no "languages" section in Control panel, no "choose your langauge preferences" or whatever. In the new Settings thing these new languages are not shown in the list of languages, I can't remove them!</p> <p>Does anybody know how to remove these new keyboard layouts?

A short while after the display goes into power save mode, the computer also locks so that I have to type the user's password to unlock.</p> <p>I have already tried editing <code>HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Power\PowerSettings\7516b95f-f776-4464-8c53-06167f40cc99\8EC4B3A5-6868-48c2-BE75-4F3044BE88A7</code> and set <code>Attributes</code> to <code>2</code> to enable "Console lock display off timeout" in the display power options, but increasing that value has no effect. This lead me to believe there is a domain policy somewhere that overrides this setting.</p> <p>I found something about <code>Computer Configuration\Policies\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies\Security Options\Interactive Logon: Machine Inactivity Limit</code>, but this just turns on the screensaver after some time, instead of locking after display has entered power save.</p> <p>So, is there some other local property I can change, or do I have to modify some domain policy, if so; which?</p> http://asianhospital.com/?id=q/1360332 5 How safely does reinstalling Windows wipe old data? Yann http://asianhospital.com/?id=users/361067 2018-09-21T18:49:31Z 2018-09-23T09:20:12Z <p>I've got a set of computers that have had privileged information on that I want to be able to re-use. If I used a Windows boot drive to re-install Windows, how sufficient would that be towards keeping the old data safe?</p> <p>I'm aware that the only sure way to secure the data is by grinding the hard drives (HDD for my purpose, but for the sake of a more useful reference, if there's any difference for an SSD I'd like to know that too) into a fine powder, but how 'good enough' is it? If it's not good enough, is there an alternative that leaves the hardware intact that is functionally good enough, assuming that incredibly powerful people don't want my data, who'd just break out the pliers and get it anyway.</p> <p>I don't have any particular threat model - I'm talking about handing over the hardware and never looking at it again, and honestly don't know how to construct a threat model. There would be legal ramifications if the data could be recovered, if that helps address the "how worried are you" kind of question in the comments.</p> <p>Extra points that I'm interested in, but are tangentially related to the question so aren't required for an answer is; what other issues am I likely to run into if I were to give/sell these computers on? (My organisation owns the computers and the licences for Windows, and would like to offer them to employees once we're done with them). I believe there's an issue with transferring the Windows licence, for example.</p> http://asianhospital.com/?id=q/1360613 0 I am using proxy to connect to internet.

All goes well. Next day, it is trying to install updates from a total of 66. it hangs on 21. the disc is spinning just fine.</p> <p>I left it there and go to sleep. this morning it is still on the very same state (8+ hours!)</p> <p>It is a passive cooled system that uses the metal case as cooling, so i can touch it and feel if the temperature is on the high 50C or lower 60C... it usually stays on high 50C if it is completely idle for some time and lower 60C if it is doing work on the CPU... it was in the lower end temp, which led me to believe it was doing nothing all that time.</p> <p>I forced a shutdown by pressing the power button for 4sec. it booted up, i selected to start windows normaly and it rebooted instead of showing the login screen, and then rebooted to the 'removing badly installed updates' or something on those lines screen and then system was usable.</p> <p>I selected all the security updates and installed them actively, it now hang on number 17, kb2653956, nothing breaks, there is no weird process doing extra work as far as i can tell. the progress bar lights up as if it were working. nothing is abnormal, despite this update never installing.</p> <p>after several hours i clicked cancel. now it is there, but saying canceling update 17, and the cancel button is disabled. I'm sure it is not going anywhere again.</p> <p>I did a full backup via windows right before the update... but never used windows backups for anything, so i'm not sure if there's anything useful there.</p> <p>Everything i found about updates not installing people report an error code. i get nothing. just takes forever and does nothing.</p> <p>the history shows a bunch of the failed ones from when i reboot, that the logs only have day, not hour, so i'm not sure if the order will hint at the first one that 'failed'. does it? And the shutdown screen also has no info at all, so i have no idea if the KB# that is hanging now is the same one that hang when it was installing during shutdown...</p> <p>how should i fix/debug this issue?</p> http://asianhospital.com/?id=q/909738 2 Windows 7 64-bit System Repair Loop iamIcarus http://asianhospital.com/?id=users/443730 2015-05-04T20:29:47Z 2018-09-23T07:00:42Z <p>My system is stuck on System Repair Loop.

Sometimes I only want to keep the file, but not the folder. Then I would have to open it in a text editor, save it under a different location and then delete those two items.</p> <p><strong>Is there a canonical way to achieve this?</strong></p> http://asianhospital.com/?id=q/1360573 1 Accidentally unplugged external HDD while transferring files; now windows & ubuntu can't mount it. Can I get the data from it? If not, format it? iammax http://asianhospital.com/?id=users/677378 2018-09-23T01:31:44Z 2018-09-23T05:08:19Z <p>My external HDD has two partitions; one for windows and one for ubuntu. I was in Windows 10 transferring files to back them up when I accidentally knocked the cable out. Now neither OS will mount the hard drive correctly.</p> <p>If I plug it in while in windows, it shows up in "my computer" but without the volume's name (it just says "Local Disk" instead of its proper name "Windows backup"). If the hard drive is plugged in while I start disk manager/diskmgmt.msc, the service freezes with the loading sign and won't show any disks until I unplug the external. If I open the service first then plug in the external, the service does not recognize anything.</p> <p>In Ubuntu, it says it can't mount and "an operation is pending" on the windows partition (which ubuntu can see). The ubuntu partition can mount and I see the folders that are supposed to be there, but everything loads extremely sluggishly; as in I opened a folder with a single small .txt in it and the folder appeared as though it was empty for a full minute. If I try to navigate via terminal it says access is denied, even with sudo.</p> <p>I can't even format the disk becuase windows's diskmgmt and ubuntu's gparted both fail to respond. I doubt I'll be able to get any data, but how can I at least format it? What could be the problem?</p> http://asianhospital.com/?id=q/1360458 1 Install a PortableApp from paf in a system with limited privileges. Handle it locally sancho.s http://asianhospital.com/?id=users/245595 2018-09-22T11:25:41Z 2018-09-23T05:07:31Z <p>I have a PC with Win 10. I do not have admin privileges. I can run PortableApps, and use its launcher. </p> <p>To "install" new apps <strong>I can</strong> do it from the PortableApps app installation menu.</p> <p>Now I mean to use Zotero Portable. It is not available from the PortableApps app installation menu. I obtained the <code>.paf.exe</code> file. <strong>I cannot install the <code>.paf.exe</code></strong> due to limited privileges, even if trying from within the PortableApps launcher.</p> <p>It doesn't make too much sense to me that I can do one thing and not the other. I guess internally I should be doing the same thing in both cases. So my questions are:</p> <p><strong>Why I can do one and not the other?</strong></p> <p><strong>Is there any way to actually "install" Zotero?</strong> The possibility of installing elsewhere and copying is already considered, but I mean to do it locally. I often do not have that resource at hand.</p> http://asianhospital.com/?id=q/1359369 41 Windows 10 Notepad can't find text MSC http://asianhospital.com/?id=users/314122 2018-09-18T23:12:43Z 2018-09-23T04:54:30Z <p>When I paste this into Notepad on Windows 10:</p> <pre><code>"first_name"=&gt;"M", "surname"=&gt;"C", "country"=&gt;"Australia" </code></pre> <p>and then try to find the string "name" with <kbd>Ctrl</kbd>+<kbd>F</kbd>, it comes up blank:</p> <p><a href="https://i.stack.imgur.com/TNrE3.png" rel="nofollow noreferrer"><img src="https://i.stack.imgur.com/TNrE3.png" alt="Notepad find"></a></p> <p>Is Notepad's Find function completely useless or am I missing something?</p> http://asianhospital.com/?id=q/781662 6 Is there a way to set a system-wide keyboard shortcut to open a new chrome tab (and highlight the address bar) in Windows? jnewbery http://asianhospital.com/?id=users/345256 2014-07-11T03:52:16Z 2018-09-23T04:36:56Z <p>I have a lot of really useful custom search engines in Chrome, as well as extensions that use the chrome omnibox. I do the following operation many times a day to access those search engines:</p> <ul> <li>Bring chrome to the front</li> <li>Open a new tab</li> <li>Type in my keyword and search term</li> </ul> <p>Specifically selecting Chrome to bring to the front is by far the slowest part of that operation (that's because it's context-dependant - it depends on how many applications you have in front of it if you use alt-tab to tab through your open applications, or where your mouse is if you select chrome from your taskbar).</p> <p>Far better would be to have a global keyboard shortcut that opens a new tab in Chrome from whatever you're doing and selects the omnibar. That would be completely context-free and you can let your muscle memory do the hard work.</p> <p>Is there any way to configure this? Preferably natively in windows, but failing that with a Chrome extension.</p> http://asianhospital.com/?id=q/1360582 0 Is it possible to make a drag-and-drop batch script that copies files?

It works just fine on any other Windows PC in any browser... as well as in Google Chrome on the affected machine (since Chrome renders it's own dialogs vs. depending on the Windows built in dialogs)</p> <p>My presumption is that there is a setting somewhere in Windows that is blocking or overriding the display of these dialogs - I just have no clue what it is or where it is.</p> <p><em>Although not related I should note that all of the browsers on this PC have their Popup Blocker (for browser window popups) turned off.</em></p> http://asianhospital.com/?id=q/1360574 0 Is there anyway to know if my windows 7 was shutdown by the normal Menu or the shutdown command?

If I was in a hurry I'd use WDS or some other Windows tools without a question.</p> http://asianhospital.com/?id=q/808559 0 Is it possible to install OS Windows 8.1, Windows 7, Windows Server 2012, Oracle Linux, Oracle Solaris, Fedora Linux? marion-jeff http://asianhospital.com/?id=users/365965 2014-09-07T23:20:29Z 2018-09-23T00:00:32Z <p>I'm planning to have 6 operating systems in my laptop.

Please Be A Decent Person http://asianhospital.com/?id=users/946880 2018-09-22T20:35:53Z 2018-09-22T20:35:53Z <p>I noticed when I re open Firefox, windows opens it a few pixels off and in a slightly different size. So after searching for a bit, I found this:</p> <hr> <pre><code>While, 1 { WinWait, ahk_class [Window Class] WinActivate, WinMove,,,,,1024,768 WinWaitClose } </code></pre> <p>He said below, "It's an AutoHotKey script that will wait for the window to exist, resize it, and then stop until the window closes - meaning it keeps working across window openings."</p> <hr> <p>So I got AutoHotKey and started learning some functions, but the documentation is very limited and it will take me tons of searching to find out everything. Under documentation for 'While' loops for example, I could not find out what "While, 1" does. I have since found out that 1 = True, so it loops forever. I knew that could have been what it was, but I just wanted to make sure it wasnt something simple like the loop never initiated.</p> <p>The poster didn't specify what to add into the bare-bones script anywhere, and I can't comment since I don't have 50 rep (just made this account), plus the post was from 10 years ago.</p> <p>In my case, I want it to set the location and size of Firefox windows whenever they happen to exist, so I don't have to manually take frustrating minutes to get it where I want, at the size that I want.</p> <p>I don't however need to have it run continuously, just when the window first exists, but whichever is easiest is fine.</p> <p>Thank you</p> <hr> <p>Also, here is the original post: <a href="http://asianhospital.com/?id=questions/79757/control-startup-window-size-of-a-program">Control startup window size of a program</a></p> <p>(The other suggestion to use Ctrl while closing didn't work)</p> http://asianhospital.com/?id=q/548487 1 WinSCP error setting up directory user196513 http://asianhospital.com/?id=users/196513 2013-02-08T16:17:38Z 2018-09-22T18:00:27Z <p>I am getting the following error:</p> <pre><code>Reading Remote Directory: Error changing directory to '/script=E:\Data\GmousCR12\bin\Get.sftp' Cannot get real path for '/script=E:\Data\GmousCR12\bin\Get.sftp' No such file or directory.
