Sluggish/nonresponsive "Save-As" and "Open" dialog boxes

Q: Sluggish/nonresponsive "Save-As" and "Open" dialog boxes

In any application under Win XP, when I use a Save As or Open dialog box, and click the down arrow next to the location box to search for the folder I want, the application never responds. Usually, I have to click the arrow a couple of times and then it sort of wakes up and responds, or the application crashes (the title bar of the dialog box will say "Not Responding".

Often, in the case of the Save As dialog, it won't say Save As in the upper left corner, only an "S" will appear there.

Seems like a memory issue or else something corrupt in the system. Before I shell out $35 to MS to have them fix something that shouldn't be broken, can anyone help???

Preferred Solution: Sluggish/nonresponsive "Save-As" and "Open" dialog boxes

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi,

When our website users click on an html attachment embedded on a web-page in IE9, the download manager will not display the "Open" option. It will only display "Save" and "Cancel" which our users don't like, having to save the
html document in a folder to open it. Whereas, when downloading attachments like pdf, word etc. all three options are displayed. 

Is there any setting to tweak , which will display all the 3 options for HTML attachments as well?

A:IE9 download manager will not display "Open" option (only "Save" and "Cancel" is displayed) for downloading HTML documents.

Hi,
As you know, the Open-Save-Cancel dialog box helps you prevent your computer from affecting by virus while downloading. 
So I suggest you test to reset all zones to a lower level temporarily and then please attempt to download this html attachment again.

However, since you can normally download the other documents, I suspect there is some restriction in the website which you are trying to view. I recommend you to contact the administrator of that website if possible.
could you please send me the link of the website from where you are trying to download the html attachment?
Thanks!

This was working fine until a few days ago. Whenever I insert a DVD into either drive, I get no dialog box asking me what I want to do with the disc.

Also, whenever I go to "My Computer" and right click on the drive, the "Open With" option is now gone. It was there a week ago! I have had some Trojan stuff found by my anti-virus software and I don't know if it wiped it out.

I read in Microsoft website to make sure a specific registry key was there and it is there. So, I don't know how to get options back. The only way to play DVDs is to pull up the player (Power DVD or VLC) and click on Open Disc.

Also, I have never been able to play them in WMP because of multiple image effect.

Thanks!

When I press "open file" in the program "Business Intelligence" of an Office
program like Excel, I would like the window columns to be in "detail" view
instead of "list" view.
How can I do this?
Is this a registry default that can be changed?

Hi every one,
I have Intel "DG31" and "core 2 do"
Program hangs, when i try to open or save as a file In "excel-2003" and "corel draw9" and "WILCOM Es9"
and in task manager it shows ?not responding?
But when i try to open it by clicking on the file using windows explorer it works quite well.
Earlier i used same programes on the "865glc" and "2.4" there was no problem,
I have also tried many Intel computers to trace the problem
i found the problem on every computer that was build on the motherboard later then Intel 865
Now what to do?

Here is something wierd. The "open" dialog box of some programs and windows xp are missing the section on the left side where it has the my computer, recent documents, desktop, etc - that whole left side is grey!

I dont think this is program-specific because if I go to "start", then "run" then "browse", it is grey there and that is windows xp. I have noticed it in Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Reader, Turbo Tax, but also in windows applications such as Movie Maker, windows media player, and both the Firefox AND internet explorer browsers!

It is NOT greyed out in Microsoft applications such as Word and Excel though. Does anyone have an idea what the problem might be?
 

A:"Open" Dialog Boxes Don't Look Right

Ok, I think I figured it out. Its called the "Places bar" and the locations' shortcuts that are on it can be tweaked with TweakUI. But I dont understand how it got changed. I did not change it. Just like the Hard Drive Letters in my other thread, I was able to fix it with TweakUI but I don't know why it got changed in the first place.

A:Restore the "save or open" dialog window

I don't have Internet Explorer on my system, but from the Firefox perspective, you click on 'Options'~'Applications'...This is where you can specify default actions for various file formats opened with Firefox.

Check out if there's something similar in Internet Explorer.

Whenever I try to save any document in any Office 2013 program, nothing happens. When I press File>Save as F12, or ctrl+s, (on a new document) nothing happens. Any normal way to save a file, even saving customizations, does nothing. I just get the "working" mouse for a half a second. Nothing opens, but I can still work in the document (so I know it didn't just come up in the background). Has anyone else had this problem? Is there any way to fix it?

Relevant: I have Office 2003 installed. I've heard that causes problems. I'd be willing to uninstall them both and reinstall in the recommended order, but I'd lose my customizations. I can't save my customizations, because that requires the save as dialog.

A:Office 2013 won't open "save as" dialog.

Does this problem occur with both version of Office or only with Office 2013. Also are you having any problems with any other programs on your computer.

You could try repairing Office 2013. To do that open Control Panel, select Programs & Features, scroll down to Microsoft Office 2013, right click on it & select Change & this will show a couple of Repair options for you to try.

I double-click and get "search" instead of "open"--only when I click a disk, like Hard Drive C: or Floppy A: or CD F: and so on.

It didn't used to do this, so I must've inadvertently changed some setting somewhere, but darned if I can find it now.

Any ideas?

About one month ago a new problem surfaced Most times when I try to quot Save As quot a document and the application calls Windows Explorer for me to Browse where to save the file it hangs for upwards of seconds The Browse window appears but then I get a quot spinning circular cursor quot for - seconds until I can do anything This occurs in all applications from MSExcel through Internet Explorer The system never completely crashes but there is always this second lag now The lag also occurs when I try to open a document and to a less extent but sometimes when I simply open Windows Explorer Windows Explorer is inconsistent as to whether it will give me a lag sometimes it does work fine I have previously tried posting in the malware forum I had hangs "save Explorer "open" or when as" Windows picked something up they found and cleaned it out but that seems Windows Explorer hangs when "save as" or "open" to have been completely unrelated to this as it was a virus Windows Explorer hangs when "save as" or "open" redirecting my Google searches Can anyone help nbsp

Hello everyone, I'm new on here so I apologize if someone has brought this up, but does Microsoft have any plans to update Edge to where it can "Save as" or simply "Open" a file rather than just downloading everything to the Downloads folder? I wonder why they left it out; seems like a basic function to input. Thanks!

This has been happening the majority of the time for the last week or so. I've scanned for viruses, spyware, etc., but that isn't the problem. Whenever I try to save as, nothing happens. The hour glass comes up for about a half a second and then nothing happens. The same when I try to click browse or when I try to open a file, like pictures. This has never happened before except the last few days. I had a problem with spyware, but I've since installed zone alarm and firefox instead of IE explorer, which I had to do because I was getting an error on IE and it wouldn't open. I hope someone can help. Thank you.
 

A:cannot "save as," "browse," or "open."

Welcome to the forum.

1. Which version of Windows, to include SP?

2. Did the problem begin after installing / removing hardware / software, to include updates to AV & Windows?
2a. When was Windows last updated?
2b. Is your computer set to obtain Windows updates automatically?

3. Which tools did you use to scan for malware?

4. Can't save as, browse or open. Please explain. For example, what can't you open? Can you open notepad, type a few words, then save the file?

5. What kind of problems were you having with IE?

You're welcomed.

In Windows XP, fully updated, I have several folders full of mp3's and want to see the bit rate and duration. I right click on a column heading and select "Bit rate". I then click on "More..." so I can get to "Duration", and I select that one too.

But all the figures in the "Duration" column appear to be in "hours" and "minutes", so I see "00:04" or "00:03", but what I want is "minutes" and "seconds".

Any thoughts as to how to change this?

You may want to reinstall the operating system.

Backupthe files that are importantto you before you reinstall.

The "New" installation will overwrite the current one

If you do not format your hard drive before the reinstall the installation should not harm your files (That's why I suggest backingup your files) and will speed up the installation process.

I have been working on this issue for quite some time, please help.

This computer has multiple profiles on it. This problem only seems to happen on 1 profile, not sure if that profile may be corrupt..

Troubleshooting I've done..
Quick repair
Online repair
Completely uninstalled, rebooted, and installed Office 2013 32 bit
Ran sfc/ scannow and rebooted

Non of those have worked. Any input is greatly appreciated!!

Thanks!

This "Save As..." dialog window is mainly used to located files to import to a program.

Here we have the default size:
I want it to automatically fit all column size or have a preset of how large I want it to stretch by default:

*notice the difference with the 2nd one where there is no scroll bar. So everything's in view.

A:"Save As..." dialog window automatic fill/column-size

I am not sure if I am understanding your post, but, if I wish to see the whole window, without a scroll bar in the "save as" dialogue(cant think of a reason why I would need that), I use the small magnification facility at the bottom of the right side of the window

This should be completely trivial but I don't see how to do it I'm visiting a website in IE I don't think the browser actually matters and right-click a picture I am presented with a list of options including quot Save picture as quot which I select This opens a dialog box that is browsing my quot My Pictures quot folder Once upon a time the items in that folder appeared in alphabetical order Now they don't If I open quot My Pictures quot directly i e in Windows Explorer they appear alphabetically so it's not a folder property I can right-click the background in the list of icons which gives me a menu that I can use to select quot Arrange icons by quot and then quot Name quot That does exactly what I want but when I try to save another image in the same folder it reverts to the previous behavior So ordering as..."

Found it!

Apparently if you hold down the Ctrl key and click the red X in the upper right-hand corner to dismiss the dialog, it stores the current view settings as the new default.

Whenever I save something on Win 7 with the standard "Save" dialog (such as used by Firefox or Microsoft Word), the filename is still there in the drop-down list for others to see. Where is that list stored? A search with RegEdit does NOT match any of the filenames listed there (I even do a partial search without case sensitivity, to no avail) so I don't know where they're being stored. It's very puzzling.

Hi all,
This is a great board-- I have received a lot of help from here!
This is my next project.
Open the attached file and, on the right of the form, there are six cells with text.
I need to concatenate these with one space in between each one, then copy the group of them and use the clipboard to paste so I can open the "save as" dialog box and paste it as the filename. We need this in our environment to be able to create the file name quickly, paste it and save the file.
I want to be able to do this with a button that activates a macro.
You can see the button on the right side when you open the file. The macro assigned to it called "createfilename". The code is in module 1.
I got it started, but I know it needs help.
Thanks!

Greetings

The Windows 7 "Save As" dialog isn't as resizable as the XP version. Called "Save As" in Firefox, "Save Webpage" in IE.

If I could remove the search box to the right of the path at the dialog top I could make the dialog narrower and not obscure so much of the web page. When I tried shrinking search box relative to the path box, I couldn't eliminate it or make the dialog narrower because the path box widened.

I don't need the search box at all--the path and carats (little triangles to right of path parts) do fine.

Thank you for advice.

A:how do I remove the search box from browser "Save As" dialog?

Hi mms2

Welcome to to forum.
I don't know if mozilla (Firefox) and IE actually share the same "dialog".
But I have found MozilaZine forum, for all things mozilla, very helpful.

Like you I would like to trim the c__p out of some dialogs.

I am running Windows 7 in 32 bit mode. When I go to create a folder in documents or on the desktop I right click and select "New". This opens a dialog list of functions. Everything is there but "Folder". What am I missing? Is there a Windows update missing? Is this normal for Windows 7???? There is a box at the top of the Documents page that says New Folder. When I select this box nothing happens?????? Where do New Folders go????

A:"Folder" does not appear in the dialog list when selecting "New"

The menu you are talking to is called the "Shell Context Menu", there is not a built in windows feature to change the contents of this Menu as it is generated from the registry.

go to NirSoft - freeware utilities: password recovery, system utilities, desktop utilities and get "ShellMenuView" and/or "ShellExView" which provides a simple interface for viewing and editing entries on this menu. The tools do not need to be installed, you just run them!

Okay, maybe not the most descriptive of titles, but the problem that I am experiencing is that from any application, opening up the "Save As" dialog box causes the application to hang or freeze for 20-60 seconds. This happens about 2/3 of the time, and it seems to happen in about 1/2 of my applications.

I've found numerous threads regarding this issue, but it seems that the main identifiable resolution is the following MS update.
The April 2010 stability and reliability update for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 is available

I found that link from here:
Windows 7 New Folder Very Slow

Obviously, I've applied that patch, and this installation of Win7 is a fresh install post reformat. Has anyone else continued to observe this annoying behavior? If so, has anyone found a viable means of eliminating the bug?

A:Win7x64 "Save As" Dialog Causes Hang

Are you running your 6 HD's as seperate drives?
I would make sure you have the latest chipset drivers for your motherboard, also check for a bios/firmware update. I would say its probably an issue with the storage management, as the computer is hanging when its figuring out where you can save the file.

For some time now, double clicking on a folder no longer opens it as usual. Instead, double clicking on a folder causes a separate Explorer Search window to open, with that folder's name under the "search in" tab. In fact, when i right click on a folder, the first and bold-faced option is "search", as opposed to "open". So to open any folder I have to right click it and hit open, which is slow and annoying. I cleaned out my registry, spyware, viruses, everything, and still this problem persists. I also checked the Mouse control panel, nothing there.

Anyone know what's going on with my computer?

Hi I have a weird problem.

I'm using vista 64 bit and the thumbnail icons used in the "open file" diagoloue boxes for programs such as word and firefox are missing. It shows up as the unknown file icon. I have tried to rebuild the vista icon cache and that didn't work. All the other icons, the ones on the desktop are fine.

When I try to go into properties to change the icons, it shows the pictures, but doesn't actually change. Also, the little shortcut arrow displays as an unknown file icon. So I have normal icons with a "unknown file" icon in the lower right corner where the shortcut arrow should be.

Can anyone help?

Hello and welcome to the forum, do you know how long this has been going on and have you tried to do a system restore. If you know when you first noticed this you can go back at least 5 days before and do a restore.

I would also run a full AV scan.
Plus download malwarebytes and run a full scan, this way you can rule out any thing such as a virus or malware. Virus's can start small as I am sure you are well aware of.

On Opera I can right-click a picture, click "save to download folder" and it downloads the picture immediately, without displaying the "save as" dialog. It also always gives it a unique name without asking me if I want to overwrite.

The Opera method is MUCH faster when saving lots of pictures.

Hi everyone!

Yesterday my HP laptop (Windows 7) started getting BSOD with various types of errors (mostly "STOP: 0x00000F4", "STOP: 0x0000007A", "c00021a" and one "missing %hs, c0000135"). Most of the time it restarts without any issues and works fine right after the BSOD and then an hour or two later I get a BSOD again.

I have tried restoring to Last Known Good Configuration, startup repair, hard disk check, virus scans and I also uninstalled any recently added programs I could think of and cleared up more than 50% of my hard disk space. None of these seem to have helped and I still get BSOD regularly.

I have attached the folder from the SF Diagnostic Tool and would appreciate any advice!

A:change default "files of type" in open dialog box

I asked somewhere else for you, rag, and they gave downright explicit instructions. Try it out:

Step 1
Close any open workbooks.

Step 2
Create a new workbook.

Step 3
Go to the VBE, and in the Project Explorer, click on VBAProject(Personal.xls).
Notes (in case anyone reading this does not know):
To get to the VBE, click on Tools > Macro > Visual Basic Editor, or press Alt+F11.
If the Project Explorer is not visible, while in the VBE click View > Project Explorer, or press Ctrl+R.
If you do not already have a Personal.xls project created, then create one, and return to Step 1. See Excel’s on line help for creating a Personal workbook.

Step 4
While in VBE with the Personal.xls project selected, click Insert > Module, and paste this in:

Sub Open_File()
Application.Dialogs(xlDialogOpen).Show Arg1:="*.*"
End Sub

Step 5
Click View > Microsoft Excel, or press Alt+F11.

Step 6
Click on Tools > Customize > Commands tab.

Step 7
With the Customize dialog box open, click on File from the worksheet menu bar. This will pull down the File menu options, and at the same time, enable the "Modify Selection" button on the Commands tab of the Customize dialog box.

Step 8
Click "Open" on the File menu, then click the "Modify Selection" button on the Customize dialog box. In the Name field, you should see something like "&Open…". So far so good.

Step 9
Click "Assign Macro…", then click "PERSONAL.XLS!Open_File", and click OK.

Step 10
Assuming you have the Standard toolbar visible on the sheet, click on the Open icon, and repeat Step 8 and Step 9. One note, at this point, the Name field might say "Open" without the ampersand. That is normal.

Step 11
Click the "Close" button on the Customize dialog box.

Step 12
From the File menu, click Exit. If you are prompted to save changes to Personal.xls, choose Yes. If you are prompted to save changes for any other workbook (Book1.xls or whatever), choose No.

Whenever I perform a "Save As..." or a "Save File" (e.g. with an email attachment), the pop-up save menu always defaults to NOT displaying the navigation pane(s) showing the existing folders/files in the target folder - see thumbnail below left.

To view the folder tree and folder/file list (see thumbnail below right), you have to click on the "Browse Folders" button at the bottom left.

Is there a registry hack or other setting that will reverse this setting for me?

P.S. This problem appears to occur when the application uses the standard Win7 explorer for the save - when using Photoshop, for example, it happily displays the folders and images etc.

A:How to default to "Browse Folders" on "Save as.."

Which version of Internet Explorer do you have? Is it 8, 9, or 10? I only have 8 and I didn't see any way of changing this in there and mine does not do what yours does, so I'm thinking that you have either 9 or 10. If you do, then I will install the version you have and take a look.

You see, this kind of thing can be changed in other browsers like Firefox, and it has been possible for as long as I can remember (several years).

I use a program called Mudlet version in How Default Dialog" "File to to Last Open set Location order to play a MUD That program has some interactions with the Windows file API the details of which I do How to set Default "File Open Dialog" to Last Location not know What I do know is that the authors of the program have stated explicitly that Mudlet does NOT save the last file location it was at As such its default behavior when opening the quot File Open quot dialog is to go to its own root directory However on my Laptop this is not how it behaves How to set Default "File Open Dialog" to Last Location My Desktop on the other hand behaves as expected I can open up he file dialog and it will always start in the same root directory On my Laptop it How to set Default "File Open Dialog" to Last Location will open up to the last place I opened a file from in Mudlet They both run Windows so I'm not sure what the difference is I would like for my Desktop to mimic the Laptop in its behavior as it's by far more convenient but without knowing what's different or what setting I might have accidentally changed there's little I can do Thoughts

A:How to set Default "File Open Dialog" to Last Location

You might try this: Create a shortcut to a "placeholder" file [which stays there, undisturbed] in your desired folder. Within that shortcut properties: add the desired folder path in the Start In blank. Add the path/filename of Mudlet's EXE to the left of the placeholder file. Every time you click that icon, Mudlet automatically will go there. Example: "path/EXE" "path/placeholder file"
But, before you do all that: simply add the desired folder path in the Start In blank within Mudlet's icon. That just might be all you need to do.

It is so incredibly annoying. When it pops up (i.e. to remind me to backup my system), I can't clear the box. It stays on top of everything until a reboot. Even an end-task on explorer.exe won't get rid of it.

It's happened now on two different PC's running x64 ultimate - so I assume this is a known bug?

The problem is that I get the “Open With” dialog every time I double click any drive in My Computer. I had to select Explorer from Open With dialog to open the drives; Or any other normal ways to access my drives. I think it caused by a virus or something like that, because I reinstall my windows and the problem didn't solve.
Please help me !!!

Did you reinstall Windows over itself or delete the partitions, reformat and then install Windows?

Huh, what's going on here.
My computer lets me browse the network just fine and even sees everything there is to see. However, when I want to say, mount a DVD from a networked computer for example, the Network icon is nowhere to be found on the Open File or Folder dialog window.

Going back to the root level (from the path bar in the very same window) lets me see all the usual stuff: drives, homegroup and such but once again, no network.

I'm sorry if this has been asked before but I couldn't find any solution to this and it seems like a very silly thing to remove from the OS.

I hope it's just me being blind and I really appreciate any information you guys can share on this subject.

(Using Windows 7 RC1 64-bit, in the same network with two Vista 64 computers.)

When a download is complete, the dialog box opens, announcing "Download Complete" and when I Click the "Open Folder" button the "Download Complete" dialog box closes but the Target Folder doesn’t not open. First noticed this after SP3 in this XP Home environment.

Where’s the “Honor the 'Open Folder' button” setting to get this functionality back?

A:XP "My Computer" and "Explorer" taking ages to open

assuming you ran spyware and adaware cleanups, i would suggest reinstalling windows..... Windows (every version) will eventually slow down and not respond, act very unstable, not cooperate, and eventually it will commit suicide and give you major blue screens. then the computer has problems booting... a reinstall (a fresh reinstall preferebly) would probably fix it.....

could you post your system specs? that may help a little bit...

There must be an error with one of the startup settings.
Please use Autoruns by Sysinternals/Microsoft to see more info about Programs loading with your system.
Pay attention to Logon tab.

Looks like for some reason it is trying to load a folder as a file. "Media" is a part of a folder path.
Try to uncheck all values,where Media is a part of the path.
