Re: link for VLC media player

Where would I find the media menu? Maybe this is what I am missing because I
know it shouldn't be this hard.

Ok.
I don't have a DVD with me now to test it, but you should access these
through the media menu of vlc. Provided the DVD isn't constructed in a weird
way somehow, VLC should be able to figure out where to start it playing.

I had to look up that extension, but this might be a part of your problem.
.bup files are some kind of backup information for a DVD and not meant to be
opened.
If you have a full DVD, you probably want to be opening this from the media
menu in VLC.
If you only have a .bup file, something is probably missing.
Maybe look for something with the extension .vob Even so, DVDs are not meant
to be played this way, generally. Your index files on the DVD tell the
programme or player where to go to get the audio/video information for
specific chapters or parts of the DVD, and these are generally .vob files.
So, is what you're trying to do play a DVD?
Sorry if I missed an earlier part of the thread.

Selecting “Copy Full Path” and pasting it to notepad or an open email or whatever gave me the full path on my machine. I.E. the folder/directory/etc it was located in.

We’re talking about file/Windows  explorer right?

It has worked the same since at least Windows 98.

You should be able to navigate to a file using arrows, first letter navigation, or whatever.

The file should then be selected.

If you hit alt-enter there, the properties box should open, containing the various tabs (that part is different as there used to be only two or so in old versions of windows). From there, you can use JAWS cursor, insert-b, virtualise window, or whatever you need.

Checking drive properties within explorer should work basically the same way.

The properties don't work for me unless the file in question is open.

But when the file is open and under the File menu, and in that properties, you may need to do shift + control + Tab to get to the General window, mine did not open in General properties, or otherwise, shift + tab to the title of the window and left arrow to General.

It is there that I get the path.

When you have your search result, rather than opening the file, hit Alt-Enter to view the properties of the file and you will find its file location.  Or, the long way, hit Shift+f10 and arrow around until you find properties.

 

Hope this is correct?

Hi Wayne,

 

Something you can try is, when you do a search, and you find the file copy it and put it somewhere that you can / know where it's located until you figure out where it was at.  Or, with this file highlighted press, Shift + F10, to open the extended context menu, find the, Copy Path, option or something similar and press enter.  This will copy the file path to the clipboard, now paste into Notepad to see where it's located.

It works pretty well, yes.

I find the playlist editor doesn’t quite work as well as it used to for some reason and for that reason, using the shell options within file explorer to add files and folders to your playlist seems to be a good solution.

 

You also might have to set your file associations within windows rather than within Winamp itself.

When I use the explorer search box to find a file, and press the applications key, I see both “open file location” and “properties” near the very bottom of the list. What happens when you press up arrow once or twice?

When you have your search result, rather than opening the file, hit Alt-Enter to view the properties of the file and you will find its file location.  Or, the long way, hit Shift+f10 and arrow around until you find properties.

 

Hope this is correct?

Hi Glenn,

 

No such thing as, Stupid Obvious!  There's just too many ways of doing various tasks' and having lists' like this helps us keep on our toes, so we're reminded of things we've forgotten or learn new ways.  Way back when after I first joined this list, I had so many questions, I think I drove David & Rick nuts!  LOL  But, back then I would always tell people, There's no such thing as a stupid question, the only stupid question is the question that isn't asked!  BTW, I'm running Windows 7 Pro, Outlook Express, & J16.

Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

Hi Wayne,

 

Something you can try is, when you do a search, and you find the file copy it and put it somewhere that you can / know where it's located until you figure out where it was at.  Or, with this file highlighted press, Shift + F10, to open the extended context menu, find the, Copy Path, option or something similar and press enter.  This will copy the file path to the clipboard, now paste into Notepad to see where it's located.

Hello- 

I did a search for an old MS Word doc from several years ago and opened it but I do not know which folder it came from. I have Windows 7 and MS Word 2007 and wondered if there is a way to locate the folder that the document came from?

Re: Identifying the folder of a doc

Hey.

 

You can’t tab to it because it’s text you can only really get to using the mouse cursor, hence the JAWS cursor.

But you can virtualise the window if you want to easily copy the text using JAWS.

We’re talking about file/Windows  explorer right?

It has worked the same since at least Windows 98.

You should be able to navigate to a file using arrows, first letter navigation, or whatever.

The file should then be selected.

If you hit alt-enter there, the properties box should open, containing the various tabs (that part is different as there used to be only two or so in old versions of windows). From there, you can use JAWS cursor, insert-b, virtualise window, or whatever you need.

Checking drive properties within explorer should work basically the same way.

I searched first in Documents, because that’s usually where Word will put things.  But I did the same search from the C drive, under Users, my user name.  This will find anything if it’s truly lost.  Smile.

I pressed Control-f and typed the first word of the file name.  The results will be displayed as you type, though you may have to press tab several times to get to the list.

When I found what I was looking for, I pressed alt-enter to open properties.

I thturned on the JAWS cursor and pressed control-home to get to the top of the page.

Of course the quick solution, assuming you can locate the file you want, would be just to copy it and paste it into the folder where you want it.  Then go back and delete the source file.

A mind is like a parachute.  It doesn't work if it isn't open.

That is an option for Wayne that I had not thought of.
I usually do shift + applications key and hit the letter A to put the full path of a file into the clipboard.

I just did a search in Windows ten for a random file on my PC. I navigated to the Find results in documents section. I picked a file. Did the shift plus f10 since my laptop doesn’t have a dedicated applications key. Got these two options: Open file location and Copy full path.

Selecting “Copy Full Path” and pasting it to notepad or an open email or whatever gave me the full path on my machine. I.E. the folder/directory/etc it was located in.

We’re talking about file/Windows  explorer right?

It has worked the same since at least Windows 98.

You should be able to navigate to a file using arrows, first letter navigation, or whatever.

The file should then be selected.

If you hit alt-enter there, the properties box should open, containing the various tabs (that part is different as there used to be only two or so in old versions of windows). From there, you can use JAWS cursor, insert-b, virtualise window, or whatever you need.

Checking drive properties within explorer should work basically the same way.

The properties don't work for me unless the file in question is open.

But when the file is open and under the File menu, and in that properties, you may need to do shift + control + Tab to get to the General window, mine did not open in General properties, or otherwise, shift + tab to the title of the window and left arrow to General.

It is there that I get the path.

Re: Identifying the folder of a doc

In Windows 7, the following has always worked for me:

 

When you are in the search results window sitting on your file, without opening the file, you should be able to hit alt-enter for file properties, or shift-F10 and arrow around and find properties or route the JawsCursor to the PC Cursor and do a right click and find properties in the resulting menu.

It’s been a long time since I used it, but doesn’t Windows 7 have a search box right next to the file tree/list as Windows 10 does?

I always use that search box now. It’s nice and snappy and super-convenient, and the result populates in a normal explorer list view, where properties and all the other context menu options work.

I shouldn't have just written that the properties don't work for me.

I meant that they don't work for me to get the path, unless the file is open.

We’re talking about file/Windows  explorer right?

It has worked the same since at least Windows 98.

You should be able to navigate to a file using arrows, first letter navigation, or whatever.

The file should then be selected.

If you hit alt-enter there, the properties box should open, containing the various tabs (that part is different as there used to be only two or so in old versions of windows). From there, you can use JAWS cursor, insert-b, virtualise window, or whatever you need.

Checking drive properties within explorer should work basically the same way.

The properties don't work for me unless the file in question is open.

But when the file is open and under the File menu, and in that properties, you may need to do shift + control + Tab to get to the General window, mine did not open in General properties, or otherwise, shift + tab to the title of the window and left arrow to General.

It is there that I get the path.

Did you try alt-enter to see the properties of the file?

 

When I use the explorer search box to find a file, and press the applications key, I see both “open file location” and “properties” near the very bottom of the list. What happens when you press up arrow once or twice?

Reed, the issue seems to be that neither the aps key or shift f10 give me anything but things like; cut paste select all so I am stuck.

When you have your search result, rather than opening the file, hit Alt-Enter to view the properties of the file and you will find its file location.  Or, the long way, hit Shift+f10 and arrow around until you find properties.

 

Hope this is correct?

Hi Glenn,

 

No such thing as, Stupid Obvious!  There's just too many ways of doing various tasks' and having lists' like this helps us keep on our toes, so we're reminded of things we've forgotten or learn new ways.  Way back when after I first joined this list, I had so many questions, I think I drove David & Rick nuts!  LOL  But, back then I would always tell people, There's no such thing as a stupid question, the only stupid question is the question that isn't asked!  BTW, I'm running Windows 7 Pro, Outlook Express, & J16.

Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

Hi Wayne,

 

Something you can try is, when you do a search, and you find the file copy it and put it somewhere that you can / know where it's located until you figure out where it was at.  Or, with this file highlighted press, Shift + F10, to open the extended context menu, find the, Copy Path, option or something similar and press enter.  This will copy the file path to the clipboard, now paste into Notepad to see where it's located.

Re: Identifying the folder of a doc

JM Casey <crystallogic@...>
 

It’s been a long time since I used it, but doesn’t Windows 7 have a search box right next to the file tree/list as Windows 10 does?

I always use that search box now. It’s nice and snappy and super-convenient, and the result populates in a normal explorer list view, where properties and all the other context menu options work.

I don't think that works in a search window.

He had done a search and found the file, he can open it, but otherwise not able to find the path where it was.

Alt plus D to bring up the address bar and thus be able to review the file path?

Insert plus A also works for me in the file explorer to get the same info.
