1  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Label making software on: August 18, 2015, 10:35:47 PM
I have some office staff that do not like to make labels with Excel / Word.  Is there a free program that someone can recommend that would be simpler?  I found a demo several years back that was simple and worked really well.

I am think along the lines of address labels and perhaps any other type of labels.

Tomos,

I cannot get Powerpoint to have moving scrollbars.  The page capture will have them as will PPT.  But in PPT they will not scroll.  I guess because it's and image (picture)?
3  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / scrolling webpage window in powerpoint 2010 on: August 11, 2015, 08:13:48 AM
I am preparing a presentation using PowerPoint 2010 for some school training.  I would like to be able to show a webpage or a screenshot of some kind that scrolls the web page.  I have found software that will do a "scrolling webpage". but after inserting it in to Powerpoint by using a copy and paste or inserting from file.  Then neither method will give the desired look.

I found these instructions but it is way to many steps to have to do.  Powerpoint instructions

Is there a way to do this by using a screenshot program?

Or

Would a screenshot recorder have a way?

thanks in advance,

Dave

I am 55 minutes (by car) from 3 Wal Marts.  25 minutes away from the nearest grocery store.

All this in rural Kansas!  But I wouldn't trade it for anything.
5  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / My computer is haunted? on: March 20, 2015, 08:44:28 PM
Today out of the blue I had random keys appearing anywhere there was a place to type anything.  I have USB keyboard and mouse.  Changed all of them out for a different known working ones, but it still did it.  I shut down several times to no avail.  Booted into safe mode and it still did it.

After googling the problem, I found everyone was recommending the keyboard repeat rate.  even though I set it slower without success.

I finally tried a PS/2 keyboard and now it works just like it should.

The big question is why did it start in the first place?
I had not installed anything before this.

I'm stumped  wallbash

I got this info off of this site: Redirect

But it looks like to me that Pinterest.com doesn't go anywhere else but pinterest.com.  Am I correct?

At one of my schools they would like to have Pinterest unblocked.  It is in our social networking category but allowing pinterest.com doesn't do it.

I have googled this quite a while and am unable to find it.
8  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / sound to signal copying is done on: February 21, 2015, 10:09:10 PM
Looking for a program that can play a sound when copying a file is finished.  Would like for it to work with Windows Explorer, but would also consider another program.  I do not know if this can be done with a snack or not.
9  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / create playlist from cd/dvd on: February 08, 2015, 10:40:05 PM
Looking for a way to either print a playlist or make a copy to save to that directory.  I am on Win 7.  Right now I am using WMP to rip them to my hard drive (backup copy).

I found some plug ins that are supposed to do this but they were created quite some time ago.

any recommendations?

11  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: wireless networking and wifi printer help on: January 22, 2015, 02:02:00 PM
In our school, we have mostly Samsung lasers.  Not the real expensive ones we use are about $300.  They work well and we don't have to repair them  Unlike a couple of HP printers that need feed rollers in them all the time.
12  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: wireless networking and wifi printer help on: January 22, 2015, 08:29:34 AM
My printer is the same model as Targets.  ML-2835.  As I remember (been a few months) during the setup, I couldn't get the wifi part to work like I think it should have.

Does it confuse the printer if it has both a wired and wifi connection?  I have seen older HP lasers that could only have one connection.

Karen Kenworthy passed from this life way too young.  The programs she wrote were simple, easy to install and learn.  and they still work today.  smiley

RIP Karen

is there a special reason why the forum doesn't / won't accept ftp URLs?
15  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Convert to MSI package on: December 25, 2014, 07:59:09 AM
ftp.adobe.com/pub/adobe/reader/win/11.x/11.0.00/en_US/

hopefully this will work.

Ath, was I supposed to fix it or you already did?  Its not working for me.  I guess I didn't know for sure we couldn't do ftp although I did wonder about it at the time.   Wink

Nice find Curt.  I had looked at their ftp site just yesterday and didn't find any msi files.  However, today I looked again and found one for version 11.

version 11 msi

I have looked at that page before.  I used one several years ago but don't remember the name of it.   Sad
19  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Convert to MSI package on: December 22, 2014, 07:49:26 AM
Can anyone recommend a simple exe to msi converter software?  Free if possible.  I am wanting to push out adobe reader to my windows machines.

I have  used them Tomos, and they do work.  Especially on Win 8, since I am not used to it, things are more difficult.

4wd, I used BootMed which has TestDisk to recover the files today.  thanks for the link of live cds.  i will look at them.

i haven't used hirems all that much, so i cannot answer your question, Milesahead

it seems to be highly rated.
25  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Best Linux Distro for Windows HDD recovery on: December 02, 2014, 01:31:44 PM
Actually I do try Windows first to see if I can copy files.  But it doesn't do any good when Windows doesn't see the drive.  But Linux can.  I usually use UBCD for a lot of stuff, but in my last case, it didn't do me any good.

So I thought instead of using a live cd, i would just install Linux.  But I guess with a live cd, i can always get the latest and greatest release.

I am somewhat familar with all the ones  you listed above.

thanks for the recommendation.
