Re: Compress Zip Folder Error Message

Gene
 

I don't think this is a permission problem. You said in a later message that you can compress files using 7zip. The same permission problem should have forbidden it.

Also, if you can still add and delete files, I see no permission problem with compressing them. And when you compress a file, you aren't changing the original. It makes no sense that you can work with files in general but that the compression of a file would present a permission problem.

This is an example of being skeptical if something doesn't make logical sense. Don't assume that a computer is smarter than you are. If something contradicts itself, skepticism is in order. I don't know what the problem is but I wonder if there is something corrupted in the zip utility itself.

Why do you want to reinstall Windows?

Hi All,







On my Windows 7 Pro system I started getting the following message whenever I try to compress a file with the Windows default compression tool from the context menu.







Compressed (zipped) Folders Error
Unable to complete the operation.
Access is denied.







Can someone tell me how to fix this problem, please?! I've searched for a solution, but I don't understand exactly what to do with the steps I've found for changing permissions in the Security tab of the file I'm attempting to compress. All help is greatly appreciated. Thanks much.

Re: How to get into CMOS with speech access

Smiling?
 

General Keystrokes to get into the BIOS:
F3,
F4,
F10,
F12,
Tab,
Escape,
Control+Alt+F3,
Control+Alt+Del,
Control+Alt+Shift+Del (using Del from the keypad),
Control+Insert,
Control+Shift+Esc,
Fn+[any "F" function key] (on some laptops).

As shown above, the keystroke can vary from machine to machine, but
machines manufactured by the same manufacturer, for the most part anyway,
will have the same keystroke.

BIOS is a firmware that is embedded on a small memory chip on the system
board (commonly referred to as a motherboard). It controls the keyboard,
monitor, disk drives, and other devices involved.

Try to remember though, there can just about always be exceptions.

What it sounds like you are truly speaking of is not CMOS, but what is
called the BIOS.

The BIOS (Basic Input Output System) is where the boot sequence (boot order)
is determined for the machine and how you the user gets to this, is
different for each various machine.

Just go online and search for your make and BIOS keystroke.

I'm going to list the steps I took and see if it's the info you're
looking for, if not let me know: I went to the attendee list, found a
friend and clicked on their name. I then clicked on add them as a
contact. I believe the friend then has to go into the menu on the main
page where you look at your notifications but their is also a button
that says contacts. Once they go into contacts they will see all
people who have requested them as contacts and they have to confirm
them. In this same Contact list there is an export button at the top.
once you select it, you can then click on some or all of the names to
export to your phone's contact list. This is all I did but I believe
the key here is that the person has to confirm your request before
their info can be downloaded off the app. Hope this helps.

I'm not sure how often the attendee list is updated on the app. For
instance, if the list is updated hourly or daily, maybe your friend
was not in the list right away. Also, the list is by last name but if
your friend accidentally put their last name first or mistyped it then
it will be hard to find. I found yours and my name easily. If you
want, I can help look for your friend's name in the attendee list. The
section index on the right side of the iPhone screen makes it somewhat
quicker to scroll through.

I've played around with it so if you have a specific question
maybe
I
can help. When you first download it, you type in nfb2020 in the
search (keeping in mind it is lower case and all one word) then in
the
event ID you type nfb2020 in again. It will ask you to enter the
info
you registered for the convention with (I don't remember if you
can
look at it without at least entering some info) then it will take
you
to your profile screen. You can enter as much or as little as you
want
others to see (or none at all). The info for the convention is
very
accessible. When you are in the schedule of events, if you double
tap
on an event you are interested in, it has a Zoom link to that
event,

a
description of it and you can set a reminder for that event and
even
add it to a schedule of things you want to attend. Like I said it
is
one of the most accessible event apps I've come across.

You can also use the website for the event :
event.CrowdCompass.com/nfb20
Event password: nfb2020

There are commands that can be done by phone. The two I found listed in
zoom help are:
*6 - Toggle mute/unmute
and
*9 - Raise hand.
There is a star before these numbers. that may indicate that the starr, or
key to the left of 0 must be pressed first.

Margaret, for most Zoom-related meeting invitations, there are typically
several phone numbers listed. So, all you need is to grab one of the
numbers, make a note of the meeting ID number and its Pass Code. These will
generally be included in the info you receive once registered for the
meeting.

So, three things to worry about when joining a Zoom meeting by phone: A
phone number to call in, a meeting ID number that will need to be punched
in, and the meeting's Pass Code.

Now, there are some gestures that are part of Zoom's keyboard commands, I'm
not certain if any of them can be invoked on any other toy aside from the
smart ones. Example, to raise the hand to be recognized for purposes of
asking a question is Star Sign-9; same gesture lowers the hand, or the
meeting host can lower the raised hand. On the computer, the keystroke is
Alt+Y!

If you have NO PLANS to ask any questions, but just listening in, you should
be fine using your regular P.O.T. toy to join your Zoom meeting.

Sincerely,
Olusegun

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.
I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody.

Hi Mike,

I take it you aren't trying to compress a folder that is on the root of the C drive? Windows 7 and above prohibit this.

Step 1: Log into the PC as an Administrator
Step 2: Access the C drive's properties
Step 3: Change the Security settings
Click on 'Security' tab; click 'Edit'. To change the permissions; highlight the particular user/group and tick the box for 'Full Control'; click 'Apply'.
Windows will show a security warning confirming that this may adversely affect your PC (or words to that effect). Click 'OK' to continue.
The PC will run through the folders in C:\ and show if any have been unable to be updated.
Once the PC has completed pushing the new security settings to the user/group you can test this by accessing the root folder, right-click and highlight 'New'. You should have the standard list of file types to save to the root.

Re: Question about using the CrowdCompass IOS app

If you mean the exhibit hall, it closed at 5 PM Eastern which is 4 PM our time. I don’t know if that makes a difference but I would have to try tomorrow to see if it does the same thing for me during open hours.

I'm going to list the steps I took and see if it's the info you're
looking for, if not let me know: I went to the attendee list, found a
friend and clicked on their name. I then clicked on add them as a
contact. I believe the friend then has to go into the menu on the main
page where you look at your notifications but their is also a button
that says contacts. Once they go into contacts they will see all
people who have requested them as contacts and they have to confirm
them. In this same Contact list there is an export button at the top.
once you select it, you can then click on some or all of the names to
export to your phone's contact list. This is all I did but I believe
the key here is that the person has to confirm your request before
their info can be downloaded off the app. Hope this helps.

I'm not sure how often the attendee list is updated on the app. For
instance, if the list is updated hourly or daily, maybe your friend
was not in the list right away. Also, the list is by last name but if
your friend accidentally put their last name first or mistyped it then
it will be hard to find. I found yours and my name easily. If you
want, I can help look for your friend's name in the attendee list. The
section index on the right side of the iPhone screen makes it somewhat
quicker to scroll through.

I've played around with it so if you have a specific question

I
can help. When you first download it, you type in nfb2020 in the
search (keeping in mind it is lower case and all one word) then in
the
event ID you type nfb2020 in again. It will ask you to enter the
info
you registered for the convention with (I don't remember if you
can
look at it without at least entering some info) then it will take
you
to your profile screen. You can enter as much or as little as you
want
others to see (or none at all). The info for the convention is
very
accessible. When you are in the schedule of events, if you double
tap
on an event you are interested in, it has a Zoom link to that
event,

a
description of it and you can set a reminder for that event and
even
add it to a schedule of things you want to attend. Like I said it
is
one of the most accessible event apps I've come across.

You can also use the website for the event :
event.CrowdCompass.com/nfb20
