Reset All Window Positions And Sizes To Default?

May 19, 2012

I have a dual monitor setup. After making some changes to the orientation/positioning of the 2 monitors, I've noticed that a lot of windows are now partially or even completely offscreen. This is especially problematic with MDI programs (programs that have sub-windows inside them, like Photoshop's dialog boxes and palette panes), as there's no way to interact with the offscreen inner windows and bring them back onscreen.

How can I reset absolutely all window positions of every single program? The registry modifications at Folder View Settings - Reset All to Default fixed Windows Explorer and a tiny handful of other programs, but not even WMP and Notepad were fixed.

Resetting Original Window Sizes And Positions?

Jul 15, 2010

I'm guessing when you run a program for the first time it figures out what resolution you are using and centers and sizes it accordingly. My window sizes and positions are a mess and I was wondering if there is a way to reset the windows so the next time I open the program they look as if I opened them for the first time. I'm talking about every window that pops up on the computer. Is there a way to do such a thing? Hope that all made sense

Icon's Sizes Randomly Change Back To Details Sizes In Random Folders

Aug 15, 2012

i had last year Icons sizes change back to details sizes on specific folder

may also be relate to the issue that this user had Shortcut icons re-sizing randomly My OS had gone crazy and change icon's sizes back to details sizes in random folders, last time i had that issue i thought it was solved by this method Icons sizes change back to details sizes on specific folder

But unfortunately it only was temporary, i had to format anyway so the problem was solved after the format and never appeared again till 3 days ago.

it not seem to be a virus but it really annoy, the only thing i done 3 days ago that was extraordinary for me was to edit some video on windows live movie maker + cccp codecs, i rarely use WLMM but happened to use it 3 days ago, and after that the issue reappear, i can't use system restore since i done alot of stuff on my pc and don't want to lose them, and also i don't happened to made restore point before the day the issue occurred and the rest are deleted..so SR is not a option.

Boot Priorities And Paths Deleted After BIOS Reset To Default?

Dec 28, 2012

I bought a Windows 8 laptop, ASUS Q500A, and reformatted it with Windows 7. I went into the BIOS and used "Restore Defaults" and now all Boot Option Priorities are deleted. Each time I boot the laptop, it automatically goes to BIOS (or UEFI). I tried inserting the Windows 7 disc so I can access Startup Repair or Command Prompt but it freezes before it could get anywhere even when I tried it with an external CD/DVD drive. I cannot get the laptop to boot to the hard drive or CD drive at all, how I can reset the boot option priorities so it will be boot to the hard drive again.

Default Window Size Failure?

Oct 27, 2009

Installed 7 yesterday. All went well. This am window would only open to half size. In Vista we could fix this by opening a link by right click and asking the link be opended in a new window and then X it out. It would then recall that size as the default. This does not seem to work in 7. Simply re sizing it up and over is not working.

Default Window Size Is Incorrect

Feb 17, 2012

I recently did a clean install of Windows 7. I had run into an issue where certain UI elements would ignore DPI changes. Eventually, text looked like this:

Not exactly ideal. I couldn't find a solution, so I was forced to do reinstall. Instead of using my pre-SP1 disc, I created a slipstream DVD. Despite RT Windows 7 Lite giving me an error at the end of the burning process, Windows installed fine... for the most part. See, the default window size is too wide. Whereas windows typically default at something closer to 4:3, mine are closer to 16:9. It's a minor issue, sure, but I'm worried it's a symptom of a bigger problem.

Thinking something got goofed up during the install, I found and applied a registry edit that resets window properties. After relogging, the issue still persisted. Does SP1 use wider windows by default or is there something else going on?

Default Area Selected For Folders In Explorer Window?

Jun 25, 2012

So i have created some shortcuts to quicklaunch certain folders. Some of them open and i can use the arrow keys to scroll through the items in the folder.

Some of them open with the "Name" column selected, so the arrow keys don't initially scroll through the items in the folder.

I know this is very specific, but there HAS GOT to be a way to define what it opens to by default... especially since some of my folders default to the list of items within the folder.

Media Player - How To Change Default Window Size

May 18, 2009

Whenever I play a video file (.wmv, mpg, etc) or audio (.mp3), MP starts out at the last size it "remembered." But when it opens the file and starts playing it, the window gets really small, like a default size and makes it difficult and annoying to re-size it to an appropriate size. Most annoying is MP becomes smaller such that the volume control on it disappears to just being a toggle for mute. Is there any way to change the default size of MP?

Weird Font On All Browsers But Can't Reset Windows 7 Default Font?

Oct 5, 2011

I suddenly started seeing this ugly font (see images below) on many webpages.I think this issue began right around the time I installed some other fonts, but I am not sure. Initially, I figured it was a Chrome thing but have since confirmed the issue extends to IE and Firefox, leading me to believe this is a Windows issue. By the time I tried to revert the changes via System Restore, it was too late (restore only went back a few days; maybe I need to adjust settings there?).I tried to reset the default font but Windows does not seem to respond to that. When I click "Restore to default font settings" the button greys out but nothing else happens. No dialog box and no change in the issue.

Way To Set GPU On Default Settings Or Reset GPU Settings In Cmd Or Other Professional Way

Sep 23, 2012

Now, just 3 days ago It started the BSOD issue.I realize that my GPU was the cause of this issue. When playing games or open 3d applications the temp goes 30C to 72C (In 15 seconds) then 82C - 85C constant (in about 30 seconds).Now I've been using MSI afterburner to check my temps and at fulload my GPU will be at 62-72C max temperature but now it's 10C even higher then before. No, I haven't fiddled with the voltage I set the GPU voltage to 1.037v which is the safest (been running this almost 8 months!). The GPU is the GTX 560ti.Is there a way to set the GPU on default settings or reset GPU settings in cmd or other professional way. I have uninstalled the drivers, uninstalling GPU, disabled GPU, disabled PCI-E slot and so on by using device manager and the issue still persist. Yes, I also have clean the GPU perfectly and still the temperature goes up to 82 seconds at 30seconds-45seconds. Yes, I have checked everything is set correctly and so on, I am a PC Tech.

Is the GPU damaged? Yes I have looked at this thread: Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try Mainly, I know its the GPU straight away, I tried checking old drivers, new drivers, another GPU overclocked software such as GPU tweak and EVGA Precision. I am thinking it's the GPU is damaged or the PCI-E is damaged (I have another PCI-E slot on my system and the issue still there). It might be the PCI-E frequency? but it's set to 100 which it meant to be, I just hope is software related because I don't have the money to buy a new card. Did the dump files help?

Font Sizes With HDMI?

Jun 10, 2011

I have a Toshiba 26C100U1 26" LCD TV/monitor with the ATI Radeon HD4300/4500 Driver. The Device Mgr shows the monitor as Generic PnP Monitor. My computer is a HP Pavilion, running Win7 64-bit. I have just hooked them up using an HDMI cable, which apparently gives much higher resolution than the VGA cable I was using previously. Screen settings are now 1920 x 1080. I seem to have gotten a lot of the resulting problems fixed, but the font sizes vary enormously from one screen to another. F'rinstance, Google screens come up with huge font sizes, while other screens, such as email, are almost too small to read! I do have the resolution set to 150%, as some screens would be illegible otherwise

Two Sizes On One Hard-drive?

Mar 20, 2010

This is a problem that, according to a lot of technicians including Microsoft, can't exist.

----- This is my computer -----
Intel Core 2 Quad Q9400
6 gig RAM
Win 7 Ultimate 64-bit
----- This is my problem -----

My old harddisk (a 1 TB Seagate) went belly up, and I installed the system and all of my software on a brand new 1 TB Seagate harddrive, identical to the dead one. After some time I discovered a curiosity: the harddrive has two different sizes at the same time.
I've never had any problems and therefore I'm still using it, but I want to know if it is possible to correct the problem without having to start from the beginning, wiping and installing everything from scratch.

As you can the in the picture:

(1). The system (including bios) correctly identifies the harddisk as a harddrive with 931,51 GB. There are two partitions: the Win7 reserved 100 MB and the rest 931,41 GB is a single partition. Therefore everything looks correct where I've marked the picture with the number 1.

(2). Above, by my number 2 marking, the two partitions are shown. The system reserved one and the C-partitions which is... 482,88 GB. It's supposed to be 931,41 GB. I have no no clue how or when this happened, or what to do about it.

* Checked for an upgraded bios but here were none.

* Change the size of the partition, but the system wont allow that. The system says I can shrink it by 4 GB, but when I try that (trying to force a "recount" of the disk space) the system doesn't allow it.

* Defragging and make a disc check (done when the system starts), both make without errors but no change in partition size.

* Repaired/made a new MBR. No change.

Set Screen Projector Resolutions To Different Sizes

Jul 3, 2009

I am using RC1 on an HP Mini 2140 PC with 1024x576 resolution. I just can't work out how to set the projector and screen resolutions to different values. Projector resolution is 1024x768. If I use the "duplicate screen" setting, it insists on using the 1024x576 for the projector as well. The only thing I have been able to do is to have only monitor 2 turned on, and have the correct projector resolution but nothing on the PC screen.

That defeats the effort. I want to use the PowerPoint feature that allows presenters to see speakers notes on the PC, but they are not on the projector. Second best would be to have 1024x768 on the PC screen as well, even though I would have to scroll down to see it.

Ideas?

Dual Monitors With Odd Resolutions/Sizes?

Jan 23, 2012

So I switched TVs recently and decided to use my old LCD tv as a second monitor for my PC, as I thought it would be useful.

The TV is larger than the monitor, but has a smaller resolution. When I try to align the monitors in the resolution settings I can't seem to find anything that will let me say, "This screen has a smaller resolution, but is much larger. Adjust the mouse position according to real life, not resolution."

I don't really want to kill the resolution on the smaller monitor.

When I use the laptop screen alone, the wallpaper is stretched to the size of the laptop screen, but when I hook up the TV monitor and use the "Extend These Displays" function, the wallpaper on the TV is the same size as it is on the laptop (ie. it doesn't fill out the screen), but all of the black space around the wallpaper is still usable. How can I make it so that the wallpaper fills out both the laptop and TV screens with the Extended Display mode?

It has never done this before the reset.
