Naming Files

Hello,

Quote:
Contact the administrator for per permission, or/and you don't have permission to modify files in this network location.
I don't know what to do, and am fast losing my patience, its done this since it was installed.

In XP I could name a file orangeman, then in the same folder I could name another reduced file (thumbnail) to orangeman1a. Not so in this Win7.

Sometimes it will allow the save as it came if its mail, but if its got re??? it will not save as that and I have to give it some other name.

Its supposed to be an admin thing but what and where?

Is it even Win7 OS thats doing this or IE or F.F Browsers?

Try taking ownership of the file, then rename it...

Hello katie7, welcome to Seven Forums!


They both do the same thing; the context menu shortcut is just a faster way to do the same thing.

I should have gone first to introductions.

I lost so much patience I dived straight in with my question. Months and months to be honest. I am on Win7 Ultimate.

Thanks for the welcome and for letting me know about the site and the naming of files how to.

Tews hi again,

Oh blimey its not sorted yet, I need to read over before I touch anything. If I mess up my son will kill me for sure...

We put in a new mb and memory so things would flow nicely which logically it does. It closes fast etc, opens fast, its just the admin thing.

Thanks again to both of you, glad I joined.
