  1. How to find a file with a specific row of numbers?


    Suppose I've a folder. In that folder, there is a file whose the name is "thing291018".

    I want to find that file but I only remember that the file contains 1018 in its name. So I'm typing 1018 in the search box of the folder.

    Problem is Windows 10 finds nothing. The only way to find my file is to typing the full row of numbers.

    :)

  2. the top row is not working

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    To better understand your query, please reply:

    1. What do you mean by "top row not working" not working? Are you referring to keyboard top row keys?

    I would suggest you to go to the safe mode and see if the problem persists.

    To go to Safe mode follow the steps below:

    • Click on Windows key, and in the Power Options click on Restart while pressing the shift key.

    • A blue screen will appear with a few options.

      Click on Troubleshoot > Advanced Settings > Startup Settings > Restart.

    • Your system will automatically restart, press 4 or F4 key to go to the Safe Mode.
    Awaiting your response.

    Regards,

    Only write one number to log file and delete old ones?

    Hey,

    I'm trying to have some software read from a .text file a number (GPU Temp) but the software will only the first number in a list (Or the first anything)

    Is there a way to have to log file delete the previous entries and write the new number in it's place without any headers?


    EDIT:

    Sorry I'll try again.

    I have some webcam software that can read a number (or whatever) from a text file and then it displays the number as an overlay.

    See here: http://10.244.193.13:8081/

    I was trying to use GPU-z to do this but as it logs as a list the webcam software can't update properly (also it reads the headings of the file and displays them instead)

    Is there anyway to alter the logging to only output just the number (GPU Temp) and to delete the old numbers so the new value is the only value in the file.
