Save a file

While you're working with a file in a program, you should save it frequently to avoid losing data unexpectedly due to a power failure or other problems.

Can't save a jpg file from the Internet
System ask me if I want to save the file in pictures, where I just tried to save it. If I click yes it will save the file to the pictures folder. I am not given the choice of saying I am the administarator.
If I try to look at the file with windows explorer, it is NOT there. If I try to save it again I can see that the file HAS been saved in the pictures folder.

A search of the drive cannot find and does not show the files.


Unable to save a pdf file
I am unable to save PDF files from one site only. I have verified that Pop ups for that are allowed but when I get to the site where the file I want to save opens and I click on the save nothing happens. I have tried other sites and they work fine. The only way I can save the file from the site in questions is by using the email option.


batch file to save a file
I am new to writing batch files. I just know few commands.My problem is I have to open a text file and then save it with a different name ie; open a text file, 1.txt and then save as 2.txt.

I could write commands to open the file and close the file but could not save it as a new file. I do not want to rename the file as it would not serve my purpose.


Win 7 - Windows Explorer - Adobe Acrobat issue
I have Adobe Acrobat 10x deployed on both my Win7 desktop and WinXP laptop. When I open a PDF in the Win7 desktop, I cannot make changes and save the file. I get a File In Use error message. When I open the same file from the same directory using my WinXP desktop, I can edit and save the file normally.

No issues When I save the file to my Desktop and open directly from there (rather than finding it in an Explorer Window and opening it from there) I can edit and save the file normally.

No issues. If I get a PDF via email, I can open it, edit and save normally. No issues.

Thus, this issue only occurs with Adobe Acrobat, not any other programs. It only occurs when I drill down and find the file via Windows Explorer (or whatever it's called in Win7).

It appears to me that selecting the file in a Win7 Explorer Window locks the file as being in use.


The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process.
When using a USB flash drive, I cannot save any .html file I open. I can save .doc files and .jpg files on the flash drive, just not .html files. When I save them to the desktop, I can save them. When I take the fash drive to a Windows XP machine, I can save them. I even tried copying them to a different flash drive but got the exact same results (the second flash drive works perfectly on the Windows XP machine also). The error I get when I try to save is "The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process". I tried rebooting repeatedly, that was no help.


Unable to save to Documents Library in Windows 7 64x

Change a picture's file type (file format) using Paint
Although digital pictures come in a variety of file formats, many of the pictures on your computer probably use the common JPEG format. This is the file format most digital cameras use to save good-quality images without creating large files. In addition, many programs can open pictures that are saved in the JPEG format. However, you might have pictures (or drawings) that you want to convert and save as a different type of picture file. When you save a picture in a different format, the original picture isn't replaced; instead, a new picture file is created and saved.

Powerpoint will not open or save anything.
So I've had this problem for a few days, the problem is, Powerpoint won't open any existing file and won't save any new ones. Before it used to crash I tried to save, now it has just lostthe will to do anything, before it would crash after I saved the file as something, now, the save button and command does nothing, this is the same as the open command.

If I just find the file and open it, it stops responding instantly.


Unable to save file to external drive.
I just purchase a brand new computer with Window 7 and is unable to save file "Save As" to any external drive.

I am the administrator of this computer.


Automatic screenshot to file using Snipping Tool?
Is it possible to use the Snipping Tool to automatically save a screenshot to file on regular intervals? Are there command line parameters that can be used to launch the executable that will take a screenshot and save it to a file? If so, I believe I can schedule it in Task Manager to run every 60 seconds.
If there is a better (nearly free) tool out there to accomplish this, please let me know. I have a Win7 desktop system that displays multiple webcam images. I would like to capture that screenshot and, ultimately, email that file through Outlook.


No Administrator Permission to save file
This is a boring error and I am sure there is a simple answer but it has defeated me.

My PC is a stand alone built tower desktop linked to the Internet with password access. There is no one else who uses the kit. I have Windows 7 Home Premium and Microsoft Office 2007.

Why is it that when I try to save anything I download into a folder in the My Document's library I am informed that I do not have permission and but it can be saved in the Owners area?

I usually backtrack and save it on the desktop. That is allowed but I then have to transfer the file. Tedious and time consuming and irritating!


Cannot save any files!
All of the sudden I cannot save any files in my hard disc! I tried to save games from NBA2K10 and PES2010 and Windows 7 say that cannot create file disk or something like that! I firstly encountered this problem while I was trying to save a game in NBA2K10 game but now the same happens for another game PES2010...Moreover, while Mozilla Firefox used to save files in the specified folder now it has this option but never starts saving.
I did a System restore but the problem still persists!

"There Are No More Files" Save error.
Right now, I can't save anything unless it's an .exe file. I have a lot of work to do with photoshop, and such so I rely on saving my graphics and what not. I went in safe mode, and it did fine. I could save and everything. This problem has been going on for a while, but it just all of a sudden happened.

Download file does not start
I try to download a CSV file or a Microsoft money file from my banks website. The file download seem to start but then does not go further than the dialog box which shows the items flying into a new folder from the left to the right.

When I say I want to save the file it does not offer me the location, so it somehow does not come out of the first stage of the download. This just started recently and I somehow assume that it has something to do with Norton which was renewed beginning of the year on my computer although I am not sure. The download works from a different machine fine.
