    Repeated Limited Connectivity on WiFi

    I share it with two roommates, though neither are having issues. I suspect it could be the location of my adapter, as it's near some aluminum vent shafts. Nonetheless, it's incredibly frustrating.

    Repeated Limited Connectivity on WiFi

    I recently moved to a new apartment where I share an internet connection. Since I got here, I've been having repeated 'limited connectivity' errors on my WiFi connection. Whenever I get these errors, the troubleshooter 'fixes' the problem after resetting the adapter, but it continually comes...

    People tagging of photos using details pane

    OK. I was able to get my Photo Gallery problem resolved, so I'll just have to go back using that, I guess.

    People tagging of photos using details pane

    I'm aware there are other third party applications. My question was if there was a way to do it through the preview pane in Explorer. If there are programs that allow for editing through the preview pane itself, might you have specific names for them? I tried going to the registry and adding...

    People tagging of photos using details pane

    Hello. I've been trying to re-organize my photo collection. Previously, I had been using Windows Live Photo Gallery to tag my photos, and admittedly it was convenient.

I did originally have each album in the artist's folder, but decided to do away with that since it was an extra layer unnecessary...

    Folder metadata

    I've found that sorting and grouping in the actual file locations is not ideal because with so many files, it takes a while to index each sort/group/filter sometimes slowing to a crawl. The other option is to store each album in a separate folder, which helps with the speed, but again without...

    Folder metadata

    Thanks, Vadim. I actually decided to utilize the one-folder library since my tags were already in order. However, when I "arrange by" album or artist, the "group by" option is no longer available--it's grayed out from usage. If I could "arrange by" album and then group by artist, it would be...

    Folder metadata

    Hello, I have a question regarding folder metadata. I'd like to customize folders to include metadata so they can be sorted and filtered in library views. I do know of the existing desktop.ini workaround, which does do what I'm describing, but when working with hundreds or thousands of...
