Can’t Create File In The C Drive Root Directory – Windows

PROBLEM : while developing a java application or any windows application,writes a program to create a file in c drive but getting an error "Access Denied"Try to create an empty file in the C drive root directory manually, but no options to create any files, only new folder is allowed, although The logged in user is under administrator group.


In Windows 7 or 8 (may be Vista), users (even administrators) are not allowed to create files in the C drive root directory, otherwise, an error message like “A required privilege is not held by the client” or  “access is denied” will be prompted.
To fix it, just turn off the User Account Control (UAC). In Windows 8, do not turn off the UAC via control panel, it must go through the registry.
  1. Press keys “Windows Key + R”, type regedit
  2. Locate HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System\EnableLUA
  3. Update the EnableLUA value to 0 (turn if off)
  4. Restart Windows.

1. Go to control panel >> user accounts >> user account control settings >> set to never notify

2. If you think it’s not safe to turn off the UAC feature, then create a new folder under the C drive root directory and put the file inside.
C:\folder\your-file.txt - OK
C:\your-file.txt - NOT OK

8 Outstanding Features of Windows 8 Phone

Microsoft has unveiled Windows Phone 8, the most awaited version of its Smartphone operating system. The new OS is to give stiff competition to the reigning Apple iOS and Google’s Android.

The Smartphones running Microsoft’s new OS will be available by this weekend in Europe and allover world from November.

"We had a very different perspective on what a Smartphone should be," Steve Ballmer, Microsoft’s CEO said at the press event. The statement increases speculation about how far Windows Phone 8 will fare in being the third desired option after iOS and Android among Smartphone users.

But it is definitely packed with some amazing features, which are able to satisfy every Smartphone users out there. Read on to know the 8 most outstanding features of Windows Phone 8.

#8 Lock Screen:

Windows Phone 8’s Lock Screen shows all necessary information in one screen. Microsoft always had live tiles as top priority, and it can be noticed in the Lock Screen. The tiles or the apps on the home screen refresh with new information on their own; so you need not to tap on app to see new Facebook notifications or the weather updates. And you can customize it with the tiles of your favorite apps or contacts. "It will automatically surface photos and notifications and content from your favorite apps," Joe Belfiore, manager of the Windows Phone Program at Microsoft said.

#7 Kid's Corner

This feature enables a “guest user” mode, where parents can customize the content on phone that kids can have access to, like games, learning apps, videos, and music. This feature prevents the kids from wrecking havoc on once personal data, or misuse the mobile.

#6 Data Sense

Another new feature introduced in to newOS is focused on saving money and time. It is called Data Sense. You have to fill in your data plan and end date of your monthly billing cycle; the app will then monitors your data usage, and will warn you with pop-up notification if you’re reaching your monthly allotment. The app can also compress data sent over the wireless network, so you can save few bucks. It also helps you find nearby Wi-Fi hotspot so you can turn off of the mobile network. This feature can get you 40 percent more web browsing than other phones, Belfiore said. And lastly you can get snapshot of your data usage.

#5 Syncing your phone

Windows Phone 8 offers several ways to sync your phone so that you need not to go through Zune to access your stuff, be it music, videos, photos and many more. The devices on this platform can utilize MTP (Media Transfer Protocol) which means you can access phone as external hard drive. You can drag and drop files, and even go into media player and sync up songs.

In addition to it you can sync up with iTunes too, but it requires desktop companion app to do so. And for Mac users this is the only option to connect the Microsoft Phone 8 device to their machine.

#4 Compatibility with Windows 8

Even a single look at Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 will let secret out—both share greater kinship. Microsoft seems to be betting heavily on the Modern UI, and worked hard to combine desktop, mobile and tablet experience into one platform. Which means that, windows 8 developers can use same code for Windows Phone 8 too; the company is hoping that this feature can bring third party developers to come together and strengthen its unproven ecosystem of Apps.

#3 Wallet and NFC

Microsoft taken notice of Google Wallet and Apple’s Passbook, and is coming up with its own Wallet app, which may combine the features of both its compotators and can add more. It serves as hub for storing your credit card information, which can be used to purchase stuff on stores or for NFC (near field communication) enabled mobile payments.

The feature doesn’t stop here, you can use this to share videos, music, contact information and Internet Explorer links between phones and other devices.

#2 Photos and Camera

Even though the new OS could have been reason to add something creative to the camera, Microsoft has came up with only few but differentiating camera feature. The view finder UI has received few tweaks, like zoom is no longer on side bar for you can pinch-to-zoom on the viewfinder itself. The sidebar sports flash toggle switch and ability to select a lens. The camcorder and front-facing camera toggles remain same. 

In addition to it the developers may come with apps that can enhance overall photo-taking experience. The apps can be like Photostrip, which lets you take shots in burst mode or Photosynth that offers panoramic shots and many more.

#1 Music and Video

The old is gone, Zune is yesterday’s news. The music section is ruled by Xbox Music Store; likewise Zune pass is now Xbox music pass.

The best feature is the phones’ deep integration with cloud. The purchases you made within Music stores are available on cloud for you to listen anytime you want. And every song and video associated with your Microsoft account will get listed in to your collections, which you can download or stream.

According to Michael Angiulo, corporate VP of Microsoft Windows planning,“the OSmakes you feel like you're actually moving each Windows tile by hand and this could become the next-generation TV experience."

Man behind the Scene

Steve Sinofsky, President of Microsoft's Windows division is the man who played the lead role in Windows 8 preview event. He is the driving force behind Windows 8 who is determined to make a new computer era with users as the first preference.


Windows 8 powerful Multitasking

Windows 8 brings a lot more to you on multitasking. You can simply resize a task window and lock it anywhere on the screen. Say it will allow you to have your message window alongside your YouTube window. The OS will itself shut down the apps which are no more used, but resume the previous status when you click it again

The Signature
The main ingredient of the new OS is the Windows 8 Metro interface, which allows you to do a lot of things ranging from a single touch for performing multiple functions. You can simply terminate an app by dragging it to the bottom of the screen and also move your widow sidewise by touching the edges with your mouse.

How to Pin Apps or Folders to the Metro Start Screen of Windows 8 PC

Windows 8 has a new feature that allows you to natively pin both applications and folders to the Start screen. This is an improvement over Windows 7, which requires third party tools to pin folders to the Start menu.
00_shortcuts_on_start_screenTo pin an application to the Start screen, open Windows Explorer by clicking on the Windows Explorer tile in the lower, left corner of the Start screen.
If you’re on the Desktop, Windows Explorer is accessible on the Taskbar, just like it is in Windows 7.
In Explorer, navigate to the folder containing the application you want to pin. Right-click on the .exe file and select Pin to Start from the popup menu.
The shortcut, or tile, is placed on the right side of the Start screen.
The process for pinning a folder to the Start screen is the same. Navigate to the desired folder, right-click on it and select Pin to Start.
Here is an application and a folder pinned to the Start screen.
By default, new shortcuts are placed on the right side of the Start screen. You may want to move the tiles you create to the left side of the screen so you don’t have to scroll to access your shortcuts. To do this, simply drag the tile to the left side and drop it in place.
Here’s four custom tiles moved to the left side of the Start screen for easy access.
We grouped the four tiles together. However, you can easily create new groups of tiles. For example, if we wanted to group the app tiles together and the folder tiles together, we can drag our folder tile between the new group of custom tiles and the group of tiles to the right until there is a gray bar.
Release the mouse button and your folder tile sits all by itself in its own group. You can always move it back to the original group by dragging it on top of the tiles in the other group.
When you click on a shortcut to a folder, the folder is opened in Windows Explorer on the Desktop.
You can just as easily unpin a folder or an app from the Start screen. To unpin a folder, right-click on the folder’s tile. A check mark displays in the corner of the tile.
The options for the tile display at the bottom of the Start screen. Click Unpin from Start to remove the tile.
When you right-click on an application tile, there are more options available. Just like you did with the folder’s tile, click Unpin from Start to remove the application’s tile from the Start screen.
By default the name of the tile is the name of the .exe file for applications or the folder name. However, changing the name of a custom tile is easy. Right-click on the tile you want to change so it is checked and click Open file location at the bottom of the Start screen.
The following folder containing the program and folder shortcuts for the Start screen opens in Windows Explorer.
%APPDATA%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs
Select the shortcut you want to change and press F2. Change the name as desired and press Enter.
NOTE: You can also click twice slowly on the file name to make it editable.
The tile on the Start screen reflects the new name.
If you install a program that puts a shortcut to itself on the Desktop but not the Start screen, you can easily pin it to the Start screen. Simply right-click on the Desktop shortcut and select Pin to Start from the popup menu.
The Windows 8 Start screen, or Metro screen, may take some getting used to, but it can be customized to fit the way you work and play.
