    FAQ 2015.09.01 Updated

    Here’s talking about common problems referred by users.

    1. Q: Settings or menu reset after restart?
      A: Firstly, DO NOT run SAO Utils.exe in the ZIP package directly, please extract the package before running. Secondly, please DO NOT extract the package to the system folder, or if you have to do so, please make sure that read and write permission is granted to the SAO Utils folder as well as its sub folders.
    2. Q: What does the LV in the HP-Bar means? & why does it reset to LV1 every time I restart the program?
      A: The LV of HP-Bar indicate the up-time of SAO Utils, so you will lose your previous LV if you close it.
    3. Q: How can I add a Catalog Menu or List Menu in the main menu?
      A: To add sub-menus in the main menu:
      1.Long press the first icon(others are system icons & cannot be modified);
      2.Long press agin on the ‘Modify’ itrem;
      3.Click “+”(Add) on the editing tray.
    4. Q: How can I add system folders such as Computer, Videos and Music folder?
      A: For the restriction of folder picking dialog, we can’t pick up a vitual folder directly. To pick up a virtual or system folder:
      1.Choose ‘url’ in the ‘Action’ label, click ‘…’ button then input on of the strings:
      Computer: file://::{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}
      Labraries: file://::{031E4825-7B94-4dc3-B131-E946B44C8DD5}
      Documents: file://::{031E4825-7B94-4dc3-B131-E946B44C8DD5}\Documents.library-ms
      Music: file://::{031E4825-7B94-4dc3-B131-E946B44C8DD5}\Music.library-ms
      Pictures: file://::{031E4825-7B94-4dc3-B131-E946B44C8DD5}\Pictures.library-ms
      Videos: file://::{031E4825-7B94-4dc3-B131-E946B44C8DD5}\Videos.library-ms
      Recycle Bin: file://::{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}
    5. Q: Useful commands?
      A: From the internet:
      Shut Down: shutdown.exe -s -t 0
      Reboot: shutdown.exe -r -t 0
      Lock: rundll32.exe user32.dll,LockWorkStation
      Suspend: rundll32.exe powrProf.dll,SetSuspendState
      Command Line: cmd
      Notepad: notepad
      Calculator: calc
    6. Q: How can I change the display language?(Temporary)
      1. Find your system locale name:
      1.1 Open a CMD window
      1.2 Enter ‘systeminfo’
      1.3 Copy the ‘System Locale’ value
      2. Duplicate existed locale files:
      2.1 Make a copy of the locale folder you want in SAO Utils/Locales folder
      2.2 Rename it as the value(xx_YY) section 1.3 shown
      3.Restart SAO Utils
    7. Q: About icons?
      A: SAO Utils Full contains 200+ sets of icons in the Images folder of program, there are two types of icons in corresponding:
      Images/symbol: symbol icons for the first level menu.
      Images/icon: circle icons for both Catalog Menu & List Menu.
    8. Q: Is it possible to call out the launcher only when I pull down 2 fingers with a multi-touch screen?
      A: I think the GestureSign is just what you’re looking for. Just create an action to run SAO Utils.exe binding with your favor gesture, then you will get the launcher called out.
    9. Q: How can I get SAO Utils to work with VR devices?
      A: Please refer to SAO Utils VR patch and tutorial (for Beta 1 Update 1).

      几年前因为SAO动漫而喜欢上了里边的界面风格,于是在网络上寻找有没有修改电脑界面风格的办法,于是发现了这个网站,但是用了一段时间后,由于学业,离开家,没再关注过,但是家里的电脑上还是一直留存着SAO Utils,每次开机都是link start(不知道期间我爸用电脑的时候是什么感受哈哈),几年后的今天,突然想起来这个网站,怀着疑惑与期待,怕这个网站不在了,点开后缓了一口气,很高兴网站还在,你们还在。我也不知道该说什么了,总之,谢谢你带来的SAO Utils ,我很满意,我很喜欢,谢谢。

      刚刚用上了触摸屏,发现SAO Utils并没有做对触摸屏手势响应的功能,希望能将这个功能加上,这样才真正的像刀剑里的效果

      Hello there, i want to let you know i greatly appreciate your team(you) making such a UI for people of SAO fans. however id like some feed back. i don’t know if its me but i have tried to set up the POP3 server/port and SMTP server/port for the mailing with my Gmail, Outlook, and even Yahoo. and nothing seems to work. it simply says “Cannot connect to POP3 server. I’ve watched tutorial videos on youtube, and even looked through google and yahoo for all the server/port information and set up instructions. Is it me? or is it because the system is still in beta?

      Sorry if this Isn’t the right place to post this question. i deeply love this. never give up ^^
