Living Room / Re: File too long for Recycle Bin

Been doing some checking.......
Those long files aren't in the original "includes" folder. They show up when the htm file and includes folder is moved to a different partition  :huh:

They may be part of the header from the newsletter email msg  :huh:
I tried to copy and paste one of the long file names to give you an idea of what I'm talking about but it won't let me do that either.... they have no file extension either????


 :o that's part of one. :P

Solutions could be:
- Shorten the name of the file.
- Move the file to different location much closer to the drive letter and then delete it.
- Adjust the setting of the Recycle bin to throw away files directly (without these being stored in the recycle bin first), delete the file and adjust the setting again (although I think this is a setting for p.ssies to begin with)
- If all that fails you can try to boot from a Linux or Windows boot cd and delete the file that way.
All good logic, But............. Windows won't let you move the file, shorten it or rename it.
Can't bypass the Recycle Bin either  :down:
Files long enough to cause this problem are rare and I have a little utility from last century, Move on Boot, that deletes them  nicely but I think I've found a faster solution.
A little background on the source of the files..........
I'm diabetic and occasionally run across a recipe in a newsletter that may add something to my diet so I save it. When time permits I gather all those recipes and move them to a folder on Drive D:. I save the recipe in htm format so it comes down with an "includes folder" which "includes" some files, usually graphic files, that are three screens long  :huh:
Several hundred characters long and I have no idea why.
The ladies that collect recipes on a regular basis are more apt to run into this than others  :Thmbsup:
To shorten the story........ if you get an error message "file too long......." and you want rid of it, highlite the file,
right click on the Menu Bar in the ribbon and you'll get a dropdown with an option to "Delete the History". Delete the history and chances are that you can now delete to file without further ado.
Evidently the file history is included in the file length somehow but that's above my paygrade. I discovered the fix by chance  :D
A Windows programmer might be able to enlighten us  :huh:

I suggest you round up a copy of Move on Boot to keep in your toolbox. It's a freebie and has been updated over the years.

Living Room / Cheat Sheets for Developers

This may of  interest to some....

12 Websites to Download Cheat Sheets

A cheat sheet is a short and clearly written notes, using a few words as possible to give the necessary information. In other words, the notes are compressed in order to be brief. Well, that’s cheat sheet literally, but in internet language, a cheat sheet is a list of shortcut tools used on the web to achieve a specific task. There are many computer applications that have included cheat sheets in their documentation. Keystroke or menu of commands serve as a reminder for web developers to make their work easier because it will help them save some extra effort from looking into the entire manual to search for the keystroke required to execute a command, like for example locking your window.  :)

Sounds interesting Cuffy thumbs up

Any chance of a couple of screenshots smiley

While I'm at it ;-)
would you consider doing a mini-review? The mini-review board is here:

Have you had a chance to look at the screenshots, etc. provided with download link?
Anything still unclear?

I haven't looked at your template for reviews but would be happy to give it a go if you think it would help  :huh:
Looking at the situation it may be information overload.... much like writing a tutorial on "How to Open a Folder"   :D
and reviews on how to open a folder are rare   :-[

More Info:
Whatever File Association Manager does it has already done it!
I just added .zip extension to both a Win8.1/64 machine and a Win7/32 machine and the Tag detail in the Property sheets activated immediately which means you won't have to wait for hours each time you add a new extension to the list  :P
