Single keystroke issue

Since upgrading from IE7 to IE8, I have lost the capability in the 
right-click menu to hhit a single key to perform a function.  For example, 
right click a "favorite" and hit "m" to rename, or hit "d" to delete. 
Instead, now have to mouse over the command to perform.  Also, the shortcut 
keyletter used to be underlined in IE7, now nothing underlined.

I'm sure it is something simple, but I haven't been able to find the answer 
yet.

TIA

Hi Ferret,

They changed the way the Favorites Pane and Links toolbar work in IE8.

What was your Links Toolbar is now your Favorites Bar in IE8. The context 
menu for both the Favorites pane and Favorites Bar has changed also (to 
remove some of the functions that connected the browser to your computers 
local file system... for security reasons)

You can Delete an Item/Folder from either by just pressing your Delete 
Key...

But, try this trick to manage your Favorites (Internet Shortcuts)

type

shell:favorites in your IE address bar an press enter. This will open up 
your 'classic' Favorites Folder view in Windows Explorer. All of your 
context menus that you are used to will still work here. You can also select 
multiple shortcuts and open them with one click (which you can't from the IE 
Favorites Pane) and it is a lot easier to drag and drop to add or move your 
saved Internet Shortcuts.

To display your Classic Links Folder by the same method, type
shell:favorites\links in your IE address bar and press enter.

You can also just add the Favorites and Links folders to your Windows Task 
bar and manage them from there(the old context menus still work there also).

Disclaimer: Favorites means Internet Shortcut Favorites as viewed in the 
IE(all versions) Favorites Pane/Center, not Win7 Favorite Libraries.

Regards.

SBS 2008 migration
I have started a migration from sbs 2003 to sbs 2008 premium. I have done the basic load (everything up to starting the migration wizards on the new server) so far and had one installation issue. The issue was that I could not download updates. When I try to run the CTIW it errors. Says that it cannot connect to the internet. It cannot grab my router and make any changes (old router, not upnp). However, my router is working fine with the 2003 server. So, basically, no one on my network can connect to the internet and/or the old exchange server. The new server cannot con...

CRM 4.0 Activities Flaw/Issue
After upgrading from CRM 3 to 4 about 1 month ago, a sales rep pointed out an issue with Activites that isn't working as it should (or would think). In CRM 3, if you selected the Due Today option, it would list only activities due today. No overdue items. In CRM 4, if you select the Due Today option, it shows all activities due Today AND overdue. Basically, it's broken and useless with no Today option. In CRM 3, if you selected the Due Overdue option, it would list activites that are overdue. In CRM 4, if you selecte the Due Overdue option, it shows all activities due Today AND ove...

Exchange 2003 OWA issue w/embedded URLs
I'm running Exchange 2003 in a front-end/back-end configuration, and for the most part OWA works just fine. I have IIS configured so that users don't need to type in the domain name when they login, and that works. However if a user clicks a URL in a message, the authentication box pops up, asking them to re-authenticate. The box will NOT accept the username and password combination unless the user specifies domain/username. I guess there are two issues here, one why is it even prompting for re-authentication, and two why won't it accept the "normal" combination of usern...

Weird issue with Calendar
I have one user that you can send email to fine, but when you send her a meeting appointment via outlook to her exchange GAL name she receives it fine but you receive a system admin message that a completely different end user is not a valid mailbox. Why would a calendar request be sent to her and a non-related ex employee? I checked her mailbox to be sure she didn't have a shared calendar, a delivery forward would effect more than just her calendar items so it can not be that. What would cause just those to be duplicated? On Wed, 13 Jul 2005 05:27:14 -0700, bishop <bishop@dis...

Creating a single PDF for thousands of invoices
We would like to see the ability of creating a single PDF when doing large batches of invoices instead of having name each one. It's inefficient to name thousands of PDF's. The process of printing them can be efficient for us if all of the invoices in range or batch were appended inside of a single PDF. We could them print the PDF on high speed Xerox printers that we own. If we try to print them today on the high speed Xerox, each invoice is a seperate print job and the Xerox queue will see them with the same invoice name and it will only print one until the operator clicks on e...

Exchange 2000 OWA issue
