  • 2. word 2007 no right click menu customization
    Just installed office 2007 and I was blown away that MS has removed the ability to customize context menus or short cut menus. What the.... Come on. Put the feature back in! If anyone knows of a 3rd party program that will permit customization of the context menus please post a link.
  • 3. default save options
    I am currently considering purchasing an Office 2003 package with a new laptop, but before committing was looking for confirmation that word and excel can be set up to save, by default as word /excel 97 versions. Generally any other PC that I use will be running office 97, and hence it willbe desirable to set up andy new office package to save as this format for comatablity. best regards David
  • 4. Demo NO SOUND
    When attempting to view demo from Microsoft via CD or online, I get no sound. Have updated drivers for Media Player, etc. All other app(s) work properly just no sound on Microsoft Demo. Sound REALLY helps with demos. Thanks in advance.

File Name Too Long For Recycle Bin - Cannot Delete

Postby TWFyayBTdGV2ZW5zb24 » Tue, 11 Nov 2003 08:01:10 GMT


Somehow when transferring old emails from one IBM T40 to the My Documents folder on another, identical, IBM T40, much of the body of the text of an old Outllook email message somehow became part of the file name.  XP will not let me delete the file and gives me an error message that the file name is too long for the Recycle Bin ... and it will not let me rename it or move it either.  It is in a subfolder of My Documents and I have tried deleting all of the folders above it as well and I get the same message.

I have been on the phone for several hours with IBM Techinical Support and they have no solution as well, other than to call Microsoft.

5.Can you retrieve-If you DELETE the file 'Inbox' from the Recycle bin on desktop

I was trying to delete some files that involved several 
pop-up banner ads & windows from interfering with my 
search for telecommuting jobs.  While clicking around on 
the internet, somehow this SPYWARE program began to write 
itself on to my hard drive, so I went into Windows 
Explorer to FIND FILES or FOLDERS to find it & DELETE 
whatever was associated with it!  Well, in the process, I 
ended up sending these files to the RECYCLE BIN on my 
desktop to get rid of them.  However, in the process of 
DELETING them, I also deleted a file 'Inbox' that I 
thought was part of the problem.  I pray there is a way to 
retrieve these emails I accidentally deleted!!!  PLEASE 
HELP ME!  These were very important emails regarding 
employment!  Thank you.
