Hi Brink,

Enjoyed the tutorial. Never knew about this. Thanks.
One cmd. that woked oddly was the 'shell:TreePropertiesFolder'.
The window pops up and in half a sec. it closes. Any ideas why that would happen.
I have read several of the tutorials. What a great resource. Thanks to all.

Gary,

When you right click on it at the top part of the Start menu and click Open folder location, it opens the user Desktop folder with Dektop highlighted in the folder tree.

Other than that, I have not found much use for it yet either.

I give up. Where's the white line (Start Search) area? Should I access the search feature? (opens Explorer) But typing the Shell Command in the Search box in Explorer produces no results. Please advise.:(

Hi Antje,

Welcome to Vista Forums. :party:

It is the white line with Start Search in it at the bottom of the Start menu in the screenshot at the top of this tutorial.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Hi Antje,

You can click in the box, but there is no need. Just start typing. Should go there automatically.

Hello Naihla, and welcome to Vista Forums.

It sounds like you may be having more serious problems if none of the shell commands above would not open anything when typed into the Start Menu search box or RUN window. How does everything else run on the computer?

Could you post back with the exact complete error message the game gives you when you try to open or install it?

You might give the free program 7-Zip a try instead. Run it as administrator, click on Options, then select the RAR file extention to be handled by 7-Zip.

Hope this helps for now,
Shawn

Hi Brink,

Thanx for your quick reply. my laptop is just 2 months old. just bought it here on aruba. everything else works fine, but i do have a problem with the memory vista eats (use hihi)
The game im trying to unpack and install is anno 1404, i already have anno 1701 the pre version and that one worked correct.
This one has files named rzr.001 etc. So i need to unpack it and then install. But it does not work. Vista does not wanto unpack it. It just says nothing and do nothing.
So i looked at the properties of the files, and it said i need Windows blabla commor, so started to search for it and came here.
i tried your commands and just like i said it says: cant find file, i started to try the others and got the same or does not exicst etc.
I tried with winrar, winzip etc, did not work, it will pack but not unpack proper. I am going to try your advice with the 7 program you just said and will come back on that.
I also found out that it is form razor, so i found razor program but im not familiair with it. beside that i red some comments and a lot say it does not work. or have errors.
im realy carefull with downloading things. so im going to try 7 zip and see what happens

tahnx i will get back to you

Oh, I see now. You are wanting to unpack an archive. If WinRAR or 7-Zip cannot unpack it using the "Wizard" option, then you might try redownloading the file in case it may be corrupted.

Hi Brink,

I have an OP who somehow changed the name displayed in the Folder View of Windows Explorer AND the system desktop icon for the User Folder from the correct user name to something different and I cannot find any way to change either of them to what they should be again (System Restore didn't work and that folder and icon have no options to rename or do anything - and no, I have no idea how it was done in the first place and neither does the OP, but apparently he got mixed up with some changes to the desktop and began pushing buttons without really thinking and before he knew it this had happened).

I was reading this tutorial and saw shell:UsersFilesFolder and it seemed to be what is needed to fix that folder and that icon, but I can't figure out how to do it. I wondered if there was any way to apply this to those incorrectly-named locations to restore them to the proper names - or if there is another tutorial I missed that actually addresses this problem.

As always, thanks for your assistance.

Thanks, Brink.

I was afraid that might be the case - and I guess that also means there isn't another tutorial on how to do it. Oh well, back to the research. There must be some way to do it - after all, he was able to change it to the wrong thing somehow so a method of changing to the right thing MUST exist.

Thanks again.
