If the software is Windows Live Movie Maker (which you can download here) which allows for video editing with a few clicks is very easy to use, yet it does not use files on your network.

So when you want to create a collage using pictures or videos, it is necessary to use the "Add videos and photos.
It is then possible to choose the files of their choice by browsing his hard drive. If it is also possible to browse the shared drives on the network, it is still impossible to import a file. An attempt will display inexorably following error message: "It is impossible to directly add files into Movie Maker from a shared network folder. Copy files on your computer and try again."

The only apparent solution is to copy files locally that interest us, which is impractical you will agree.

We will therefore make a small change in the registry in order to alleviate this drawback.

Click on Start and type regedit.
Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows Live \ Movie Maker
In the left pane, create a new 32-bit DWORD value named AllowNetworkFiles and give it the value 1.
For simplicity, you can directly download and merge the file below:

Note that if you later want to undo the change, you can simply delete the value AllowNetworkFiles (or pass it to 0).

Now you can add photos or videos from your shared disks in Windows Live Movie Maker!

It is now possible to access the shared network drive in Movie Maker

Of course, you get more comfortable to use if your network is fast enough:)
The trick is therefore to create a shortcut to the file explorer that will directly open the folder of our choice. Here are the steps to follow to create and add a shortcut to a folder in the taskbar:

On the desktop, right click and choose New then Shortcut.

Right click> New> Shortcut - Click on image to enlarge

In the dialog box from opening, click on Browse to select the folder of your choice and then confirm by clicking OK.

Choix du dossier
Choose the folder - Click on image to enlarge

In the window remaining on screen, add C: \ Windows \ explorer.exe and then the path to validate.

Changing the location of the item - Click on image to enlarge

Your shortcut is now on the desktop. Simply move it to the taskbar using the mouse.

Move the shortcut in the taskbar

The shortcut is placed in the taskbar

Your shortcut is now pinned in the Windows taskbar. A simple click will open the window directly to the content of this directory.

Note that if in future you want to delete this shortcut, simply make one click on it then needs to select "Remove this program from the taskbar.
If there are different software to copy the contents of your Windows installation CD on a USB key, we present here a simple method using the command diskpart and xcopy.

The trick has two stages. First, we must make the key bootable. We will be creating a partition on which a computer can boot. Then we will copy the contents of the Windows installation CD. If you do not need to install Windows by booting on the key but you just want to perform an installation from an existing version of Windows, you can skip to step 2.

1 / Making USB bootable

    * Start a command prompt: start then type cmd in the search field and validate.
    * Type diskpart then validate.
    * In the window of diskpart, type list volume to see how volume is your USB drive.
    * Type select volume X (with X the volume number of the USB key, be careful not to make mistakes or lose your data!)
    * Type clean
    * Type create partition primary
    * Tap Active
    * Type format fs = fat32 quick
    * Type assign

2 / Copy the installation CD of Windows on the key

    * Insert the Windows installation CD in the CD drive of your computer and your key (4GB minimum) in a USB port.
    * If you have not already, start a command prompt: start then type cmd in the search field and validate.
    * Type xcopy d: \ f: \ / e / f (where D is the unit's CD player and GB USB key, change the units if needed) and validate. Note that it is possible to directly type this command in the search field (skipping the step above).

It'll just wait until the file copy finishes (which can be long ...).

You can now use your USB key to install Windows on your PC without CD player.

Note that the installation via a USB is much faster than from the original CD:)

Windows 7 is there, it's time to take stock of this new operating system which is proposed by Microsoft. Nowadays many machines are equipped with the OS, it is quite normal to buy before the final version, it is interesting to know what it actually brings.
Going back to Vista that is the result of a difficult exit, the OS had many bugs when it first came on the market, it must do a lot of updates ... Not very reassuring for software that would centralize everything on the computer.

Internal concerns, and small wars, Microsoft has somewhat slowed down the project. In this new version of the expectations of consumers have really been taken into account, but it is also the technical capability of the machines really felt with this operating system. One senses here the establishment of new bases and we finally find a true allos face of Windows

Microsoft focused this time on communication, although TV ads are not terrible, it has virtually taken over the previous communication that enjoyed no mastery. Features that are presented in this new version will convince you, we are confident you can find above the broad trends that have seen the light in that version of Seven. The current technology level devices really planned.

In summary, Windows 7 is a good value for money, you'll find in stores at a reasonable price for once. It is available for some days now, go have a look on websites that offer it, we have selected the place where you find the best price!

some days later, your software will be delivered to you vous.Si Sipos already a version of Windows Vista that will change a lot of good for your engine, but it is better designed .. You can try a trial version available on some sites (including beta) but you will then be obliged to buy if you are satisfied and if you want to keep.

Briefly Windows 7 will quietly take its place as a leader he intended to settle on his tracks to block the road even more to Linux is a new adventure that starts Microsoft, even if the controversy will not occur until as always ...
Windows 7 pre beta still only be remembered, has just experienced a small rebound in its test by the "general public". The new products announced by Microsoft, not all are still visible but it seems that some are indeed already programmed but just disabled.

To qualify for the new taskbar, it must meet several conditions which belong to a group of internal development at Microsoft. Having discovered this protection in the system, a hacker has created a patch to enable this feature for everyone without exception. A test with caution because the feature by itself is not completely finished this certainly explains why Microsoft had currently disabled.
