  2. Edit the Steps recorder document

    How can I edit the Steps recorded by the Steps recorder application? Once I finish recording the necessary steps, there are few steps I'd like to delete and few comments that I'd like to edit.

    So if I open the saved file in word document and edit it there I need it to,

    • automatically update the number of the proceeding steps when I delete one in between.
    • Retain the size of the images and overall page size in the MHTML document. (I've noticed that if I make a single change, the size of image increase more than the screen size and the MHTML document isn't responsive.)

  4. How to save read only document to edit

    Windows 10 Upgrade - CAN'T SAVE TO DOCUMENTS FOLDER. EVERYTHING IS READ ONLY

    Here's something I discovered;

    If I try to edit the file in User/documents, they are all read-only (this is what you see in the User folder on your desktop.

    However, if I click on "This PC", a list comes up on the l.h.s. of the screen with the libraries listed, one of which is "Documents". My files are there, and I can edit/save with no issue.

    This is because the documents are in:

    This PC > Documents

    (You can also drag links from this address to the desktop, and edit/save as well.

    ==============================

    if you click on the disk drive to locate the document, you go to

    C:/Users/Username/Documents

    which is read-only

    (but all of a sudden the properties are no-longer read only. Maybe because of all the stuff I did last night trying to get the issue solved.

    Anyway try it and see, YMMV

    =========================

    This kind of makes sense if you have different users .... this way the privileges are granted to the administrator of the PC (myself) through the global document link.

    At least that is what I think is going on anyway...
