Hey EightForums community.
I don't know why, for some reason, my CPU is always at 100%. I double-check under the Performance tab and it confirms it.
As soon as I close the offending programs that are eating up the usage, other processes just take its place.
Here are a few examples:
I did a...
Changing the target location of the various special folders in the user folder like "Documents," "Pictures," etc. is very, very useful, especially when your OS is on an SSD and you're using a hard disk to access your personal files. I'm looking to create my own shell folders that work similarly...
So I'm making the switch from one email client to Outlook.com.
One problem: I had all of the mail from my previous email account forwarded to the one to which I'm switching, meaning I have over 50,000 emails (literally) that I need to delete.
When I try to delete them in bulk (right click...
Strange Issue with desktop flashing on and off
My friend's laptop is having a strange issue where the desktop flashes on and off with the theme color.
I did a virus and malwarebytes scan, and found nothing.
I turned off all startup programs except a few.
It seems to work fine in Safe Mode...
This issue occurs on my MacBook Pro with Windows 8.1 on it (via BootCamp).
When checking the "Change what closing the lid does" options, I have it on "sleep" for when I close the lid.
This is what I see:
Even so, three times recently when I've closed the lid on my MacBook Pro, it gets...
Using this brilliant program called Resources Extract, I can extract icon files from EXE or DLL files.
I'm having difficulty, however, finding the icons from external hardware and media (for example, the .ico icon for my Nokia Lumia 1020).
Many of the default device icons are located here...
Thanks for the answers, guys, but for the record I found the perfect solution.
The program is called IcoFX. You can edit each size of icon separately, and generate .ico files from PNG images.
If anyone has my problem with the gritty-looking icons, check out this program (it has a free trial)!
Hey EightForums friends,
I'm trying to reorganize my PC files, and am creating custom icons to more easily identify folders.
For example, I have a folder dedicated to .ISOs (called Virtual CDs) and one for Books (see the icons attached).
I make them by using three PNG layers in PhotoShop...
Jim, not only did the program work just as you said, but it completed what I needed in less than 24 hours.
With Windows scheduling, I now have it set to run once a week.
Just curious - how often do you run the program?
Thank you so much for this suggestion. It has made my life much easier. :)
Thank you for the suggestion, Jim! I have it installed.
Now, new question for you...by your estimation, if I have, say, four days, is that enough time to format an entire backup drive (1TB), and start copying 800GB of files onto it with SyncToy?
What do you think?
