resize to full screen in windows 7View 1 Replies View Related
If a window is moved above the screen so that parts are out of view, it is automatically resized to fit in view. Is there a way to disable this?
In Ease of Access Center, I checked "Prevent windows from being automatically arranged when moved to the edge of screen," but that only stops it from maximizing.
Earlier today I turned on my Toshiba laptop (Satellite P855-S5200) and got some sort of error screen, and then it brought me to a screen asking if I wanted to do a system repair or start windows normally. I chose system repair, but then it seemed to get stuck in that process (It was taking forever and nothing was happening), so I turned off the laptop (I know, big no no), booted in safe mode, and did a system restore to a restore point from about a week ago. The "starting Windows" screen came and went, no problem. Everything seemed fine till I got to the User Selection screen (the default blue one with the little hummingbird or whatever). Then it just sat there on that screen. I could see the hummingbird and the little squiggly lines, but there were no buttons to click my user. I just let it sit there, and after about 5 minutes, the user names popped up, and I was able to continue using the computer without any problems, no other speed issues whatsoever. It now makes me wait every time, always about 5 minutes, before the user names pop up. It does this when I restart the machine and when I try to switch users.
It is a Pentium Core i7

How to Change the Windows 7 Default User Folder Icons ?View 0 Replies View Related
I was uninstalling windows live essential on my profile and added ms office outlook 2007 for email. For some reason, when changing users to my wife's profile, the desktop has to be prepared each time - as a temporary profile. The folder location has moved from Users/wife to Users/Users/wife and has a lock icon on it. I have tried moving the entire folder as administrator and received a not responding message.Short of a restore in which I will lose data is there a way to 'import' her profile under a new user and then delete the corrupted profile?View 1 Replies View Related

I wasnt quite sure where to post this but when i start my machine and the "starting windows" screen comes up there is no Windows 7 icon on the screen or anything. I just get a black screen with "starting windows" written at the bottom. Ideas? I'm not dual booting by the way.View 6 Replies View Related
The volume icon is on the taskbar at the bottom right, but when I press the volume buttons, only that icon is affected.
Usually, when you press the buttons a volume bar appears in the middle of the screen and tells you where the volume is. It does not appear now.
HP, win. 7, IE 9, 1 1/2 T. Every time I update windows, the network icon appears. Windows won't allow it to be removed. I usually restore to former day, but am tired of dealing with it. How does it come off the screen?View 5 Replies View Related
No big deal, but would like to understand what might be happening.
Have "ClipTrak", a cliboard extender on my PC, and an icon to open it up was placed automatically in the area on the bottom of the screen, extreme right.
Not sure of what this area of the bottom taskbar bar is called; start-up, perhaps ?
It stays there for hours, works as it should, then totally disappears until the next PC
shutdown and subsequent start up again.
What might be happening ?
I restored my computer successfully but I still got the blinking cd icon next to my mouse pointer. After I restarted my computer I got Windows 7 with a clock and "2 min" under it and then it went to a black screen with blinking cd icon. I don't understand what is going on. I can get into task manager and type in explorer.exe but that doesn't do anything. I also tried the Regedit fix, but that didnt do anything too. I need help on how to fix this. My CD Rom won't even open for some reason.View 11 Replies View Related
When I used to boot my computer it went to the Windows 7 screen with my username, large icon above it, and a spot to enter password below. Recently it started going to the same screen upon bootup, only now my username and icon are smaller than before and I must now click the small icon before it turns big, and then I can enter my password. how to go back to bypassing this annoying extra click before entering my password?View 5 Replies View Related
I've just recently started using my new Thinkpad with Windows 7 installed. Since late this morning a strange icon has appeared on the right side of the screen, whatever program I am running. It looks to be about 10% of the vertical size of the screen, is fixed, is a black rounded square and contains an arrow head pointing up standing on a narrow base outlined in white. The arrow head contains a capital A with a backward slash over it, and the slash extends out of the arrow head at the top. What this might mean, and how I can remove it?View 6 Replies View Related
Upon starting the laptop it goes through the standard Starting Windows screen and then i get a black screen with the mouse icon visible and movable however the logon prompt never appears. The same happens when starting in safe mode however an error is displayed stating:Logonui.exe : The Application was unable to start correctly 0x000006 I have performed a chkdsk on the drive and also run windows repair performing startup repair that found no issues. No restore points have been created so cant try that either.t command prompt i have tried:bootrec /fixbootbootrec /fixmbrall to no avail.Other than recovering the users data and re installing the machine from scratch is there any trickery i can perform?View 2 Replies View Related
When I boot my machine (Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit) I get to the user accounts log in screen where it attempts to auto login and fails. I click the little "ok" button and see two user accounts, myself (BlackViper) and "Other" with no picture, and a blank for the password.I have no password on my account, but when I click on the icon associated with my account, it asks for one. I can leave it blank and log in just fine.I then "log off" and see three user accounts at the log in screen (Administrator), (BlackViper), and (Anawvyah). At this point I can access any of the three, and they all work just fine and the correctly associated pictures are there...View 1 Replies View Related
I have a Windows 7 64bit computer with 3 users: myself, my wife, and my son. When myself or my son are logged in and the monitor goes black (power save) all one has to do is type on the keyboard or move the mouse to get the login screen. However, when my wife is logged in and the monitor goes black (power save)..moving the mouse or pressing on the keyboard has zero effect. She has to press CTRL-ALT-DEL for the screen to "wake up" and give her the login screen. how to get hers to function like my own?View 4 Replies View Related
When i boot up windows 7 my screen will go black, i can see my cursor and still log in by using my arrow keys and enter.
This is incredibly annoying, since i can not see which user i have selected
In TF2 i am a professional demolition man and soldier.
I have done a full scan with Malwarebytes anti malware and i CAN see the selection screen in safe mode, i also have Avira antivirus running constantly.
this must've happened after an update, but now when i turn on my PC, i need to click on my user name to continue to load windows.
i'm trying to find the fast login/welcome screen section to turn this off so windows loads without any input from me.
A flashing lock/unlock icon (padlock which alternates form locked to unlocked) shows in the middle of my screen. The machine was built a few years back and hasn't changed significantly since then The symptom has just begun today) and only impacts Windows. The Linux install on this machine is unaffected I'm running Windows 7, with Office 7, both activated successfully (also running Open Office and Libre Office which were upgraded last week). I recently changed video card, about 3 weeks back suspect this is related to some sort of Microsoft security issue can't find any references on the web. Cant generate a screen shot (which suggests this is being inflicted by Windows itself) even with bitmap capture e.g., snippy the icon is a very basic black and white padlock shape that stays right in the middle of the screen, is partly transparent and is visible no matter what programs are running - full screen games or windows applications.View 6 Replies View Related
I know there is a thread running round with issues regarding Win 7 desktop not showing icons and the solutions to it.even CTRL ALT DEL don't work. Just shows me a black screen which fades back to a icon-less desktop. Solutions regarding finding explorer.exe and running it to show desktop icons don't work either.Just pops out the explorer window showing the desktop.And don't even start on right clicking desktop and select show icons.... cause that's the first thing I tried. System restore in safe mode yielded no results. Virus and malware scans turn up a clean bill. I'm only short of reformatting the pc, and I'm not even sure if I'm able to run the reformat from windows.View 3 Replies View Related

I'm using Windows 7 32 bits, and had no trouble till yesterday. For a year and so, always update and have no problem. But last update made computer go crazy.It did no turn off by herself, it took more than half an hour, so I turned it off pressing power button. After that, when booting, it shows users screen, enter pass and it freezes in the "welcome" screen, with the little think turning arround forever.So far, tried with safe mode. Thing is, VERY weird, it never happened beforme to me, even on XP, there is NO chance of a previous good cofiguration. So, when I try to go back to previous state of those beautiful updates, I cannot, for there is no chance. I don't know why, seems like it was turned off. When xp user, had so many time system back that way.
Also tryed changing to "backup" files of SYSTEM and SOFTWARE, in :WINDOWSSYSTEM32CONFIGREGBACK I don't know if doing it right, apparently not =P copied back files from that directory in system32config and restarted, but same thing happens.I am using the same machine to post this, with another HD, so I think that it's no hard problem, otherwise, I wouldn't be able to use it. Runs games and stuff, so it's OK I guess.Also tryed, before, CHKDISK and defrag.Now I have the "good" disk, from where I boot, and the other connected, and can access to old Windows, and disk itself, so, I guess too that the HD works fine.

On my friends laptop, when she boots it up, it gets to the log-on screen and instead of having her account there, it's just the blank blue background and it doesn't say the Windows 7 bit at the bottom of the screen or have the shut down/sleep mode options and the cursor is in the middle of the screen, but it's not the normal cursor, it's larger and looks like the cursor from older versions of Windows. It is also frozen in place, and you can't move it. And when you close her laptop, it stays on instead of going black. We've tried looking it up already, but it's either just people having similar problems on other operating systems or people who are only missing some user accounts and can still log in on one. We're pretty sure it can't be a virus, because she scans her PC regularly with Avast, MalwareBytes, SUPERAntiSpyware and Spybot. (She also has McAfee, which came with her PC and when she tried to uninstall it, it made her computer bluescreen and then start frequently bluescreening randomly for a while, but soon stop)View 1 Replies View Related
Due to needing to clean C drive and re-install Windows, I backed up just the user profiles to an external hard drive using the Windows 7 utility. I have restored the profiles using the same utility but the profile names and logo's do not appear on the welcome screen. I can see the files and folders in Explorer but I thought that the profiles would be automatically re-created. Have I missed something?
Incidentally, when I reloaded windows I created an Admin profile for setting everything up and did not use my actual profile name.
I recently just battled the virus Win32:Small-NNE [trj] from the Anti-Phishing Domain Adviser program that was installed, without my knowledge. Now that it is removed and I am declared virus free by Avast, Malwarebyes and Spybot Search and Destroy I started my computer up in normal mode. However, after logging in it is just black with a white cursor. I have two monitors, but in case it matters there is only one cursor and it can move to either screen. I cannot access crtl + alt + del for the task manager and it just sits and sits. I didn't have the patience to wait more than ten minutes because I know its not supposed to do that. Prior to the virus issue it booted in less than thrity seconds all the way to my desktop. Oh, and the time from log-in to supposed desktop screen is longer than usual but still not more than a minute or two. is this repairable or did the virus do permanent damage to my pc? If it is, please please instruct me on how to fix it, since it does still run in safe mode.View 1 Replies View Related
I used the premium upgrade version to upgrade my vista to 7 and loving it so far. With vista on the welcome screen it was alphabetical so with my name beginning with "A" my name was first, my parents who I start pff woith my mums name "L" 2nd and my sister "M" 3rd but since the upgrade the order changed and now I'm 3rd, my sister second and my parents first.
NOt so big a deal but I was use to the old order plus with my name being first I just had to hit enter and type in password now I'm too lazy to use the cursor to click on my name or the arrow keys to go to it hahaha nah but just was use to the old order and wow I've made a long post over something so dumb.
I was wondering if there is a way in which you can change the size of the user picture in the logon screen... What I mean here... is that, no matter the picture you use for it, the logon screen shows it at a "fixed" size... but sometimes, it is shown in a little frame, while in other PC's, you can see it bigger... I don't know if it's matter of resolutions... I hope I'm getting understood. is there a way to control or change that?See ya!!!View 9 Replies View Related
Every time I make a new User and log in it loads up with a black screen and the task bar and says that the system as loaded the default profile. This even happens if I log on as the system admin. My original profile loads fine but nothing else. I think It may be because the folder that holds all the basic information to make a new user profile has been deleted from my Users folder. Is there anyway of fixing this? Prohapps a place where I can download and replace that folder? I am using windows 7 ultimate 64bit. System restore has already been tried but the folder was deleted too far back to recover by that method.View 3 Replies View Related
I've set up a secondary account on my Windows 7 machine and I need to find out how to disable the switch user thing.In Windows XP, I could hit winflag+L and switch user as I would instantly be taken to the user list.In Windows 7, for some reason they had to complicate everything. When I hit winflag+L it just displays a picture of my account and a "Switch User" button, which for me serves no purpose what so ever.Is there any way I can regain Windows XP's user switch functionality in Windows 7, where winflag+L takes me directly to the user list on the login screen?View 3 Replies View Related
how can i choose a user in the win 7 welcome screen using only the keyboard (without using the mouse)?
I'm hoping there is some sort of key combination that may be used to choose the user so that i won't have to use the mouse in order to login.
I would prefer not having to change the standard welcome screen to the domain login screen in which i believe it is possible. I'm using Win 7 professional.
