New Metro Start Menu On 2nd Monitor

Nov 3, 2012

I have 2 monitors and am wondering if there is some way to make it so that when I bring up the new metro start menu on my 2nd monitor that I can make it stick there?

As it is now, if I open the new menu on my 2nd monitor and then go back to what ever program that I have open on my first monitor (like chrome or I.E. etc) then the start menu will close from my 2nd monitor.

I'd like to make it where it stays open on my 2nd monitor. Is this somehow possible?

Dual Monitor - Start Screen Will Disappear?

Nov 2, 2012

I'm running Win 8 with two monitors, and am having the issue where the Start Screen will disappear once I click anywhere on my desktop on the other monitor. my eyes completely removes the purpose of running Windows 8 on a multi-monitor setup.

Basically I want the Start Screen to always be up on my second screen, and always have the classic desktop up on the primary screen.

Extended Monitor And Laptop Monitor Not Working

Aug 21, 2013

Today I plugged an hdmi to vga cable into my Win 8 sony vaio, and I plugged the other VGA side of the cable into an acee 22" monitor. I then chose from the right hand windows 8 panel to "extend to monitor", the laptop screen went black, the monitor screen remained without signal (extended screen did not show on monitor) and now the laptop screen is black.

I am now stuck and both laptop and monitor screen not working.

I tried unplugging cable, pressing fn and all the f1 to f12, shift, windows button but nothing is working.

I pressed off button then switched laptop back on and it showed the sony vaio logo on laptop then the screen went black again.

how could I return my laptop screen to work and stop the screen extension which is not working and which I am sure is the case.

Any buttons on keyboard to click at all?

Windows 8 Installed With PWBOOT In USB Disk Drive - Missing Apps In Metro Start Screen

I installed Windows 8 with the program PWBOOT in USB disk drive and some of the apps in the metro Start Screen they didn't installed. Also the Windows store app is missing so I can't download the apps from the Windows 8 store. What should I do to bring em there? I also have a Windows 8 disc. Can I write em without deleting all the third party desktop apps? If so then how?

Get Start Menu To Open On Secondary Monitor?

Dec 13, 2013

I just had to reformat my hard drive and when I did I went ahead and updated to windows 8.1. I have everything set back up the way I like but I can't get the start menu to always open on my secondary monitor. I can set it to open on whatever monitor I'm currently using, but I only want it to open on the one specific monitor that ISN'T my main display.

I've tried using windows key + shift + arrows and that moves the start menu to the right monitor, but only that time. When I reopen it, it just pops up on my main display.

I've tried clicking on the bottom left of the second monitor and opening the start menu, but when I hit the windows key again it opens it on the main monitor.

Apps / Software :: Can't Delete Some Tiles On Blue Metro Start Screen

Feb 13, 2013

So, I have been trying to rid my Toshiba Satellite of a ton of bloatware they put on a new laptop running Windows 8. There are also some unnecessary Windows 8 tiles I can't get rid of from the big blue Metro start up screen.

Some, the ones that I guess are "apps" I can right click on, select "unpin" and they're gone, but others I cannot get rid of

Here's how my problem presents:

I select ALL APPS by right clicking on the blue Metro start screen.

Then I right click something like a game "It Girl" or "Polar Bowler" and I see PIN TO START, which I don't want to do, UNINSTALL, which I DO want to do, RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR, or OPEN FILE LOCATION. Uninstall just takes me to the control panel's "add/remove programs." Well there are no games there. I uninstalled them from there already. The other options just take me to the desktop

I'd love to be able to delete these tiles (some games, but also a number of Toshiba programs I'm never going to use.) But I've been unable to find the key.

HP Laptop - Recovery Through Extended Monitor?

Jun 12, 2014

I have acquired an HP Envy M6 laptop (AMD version with ATI graphics) and I want to do a factory reset on it so I can customize it for me. Problem is the screen is broke so I have been using it with an external monitor until I can order the replacement screen. Problem I am running into is the extended monitor will not show BIOS screens or any of the recovery screens because no signal is directed to the extended monitor until it gets into windows 8. Is there a way to make it show boot screens or any screens it cycles through prior to getting into windows?

The broke screen illuminates and occasionally shows some of the desktop at the very bottom but I cannot see anything that I need to. I would like to go ahead and reset it so when I get the new screen it will be ready to go.

Browsers/Mail :: IE10 Metro App Not Available In Metro Start Screen?

Aug 30, 2013

IE Metro tile is missing from my metro start screen. It's not in the 'all apps' list either. when I go to program default, it is set as the default browser. I went through all the checks in the tutorial on here, but at best, I can only get the desktop IE tile to pin to start. I would rather have the metro version tile on my start.

Graphic Cards :: How To Change Scaling Resolution On Extended Monitor

Dec 23, 2013

I currently have a 15" PC with a 3200x1800 resolution. Using Windows 8.1. I have the scaling to highest.

My 2nd external monitor is 1920 x 1200.

I am trying to extend my desktop to the 2nd monitor but is there a way to use different scaling for both the PC and monitor?

I have unchecked "use scaling for all my displays" but no matter what, I still can't change the scaling on the external display. It uses the scaling settings of my PC (scaling set to highest because of 3200x1800 resolution) and because of that, the monitor scaling shows everything large.

In Dual Screen Mode - Screens Won't Go To Sleep?

May 9, 2014

I'm runnig windows 8 on my Sony labtop. The labtop is located in the kitchen. I connect the TV in the living room in ''dual screen mode'' to the labtop. When i'm listing to music on the labtop (windows media player), the 2 screens won't go to sleep even if I choose 1min to the sleep programing function. I found that there's two ways to choose the delay, in ''power saving'' mode and in control pannel. The thing is that the fix image on the labtop that is duplicate to the TV is actually breaking the TV (the images stay like phantom).

find a way to activate the ''fluid ligns animation'' on the TV afer one minute of inactivity on the labtop while listing to music.

File Access Denied Popup When Renaming Shortcuts For Metro Start Menu

Jun 8, 2012

I've been getting a "File Access Denied, You'll need to provide administrator permission to rename this file", popup window even with UAC turned off?

The files in question are shortcuts in the C:ProgramDataMicrosoftWindowsStart MenuPrograms.
It also happens in C:UsersUser-NameAppDataRoamingMicrosoftWindowsStart MenuPrograms.

Basically what I'm doing is renaming the title of the tiles/programs displayed on the Metro Start screen. If there is a better way I'm all for that as having to click continue every time is getting old.

Metro Apps Open By Default On Center Monitor?

Sep 15, 2014

I'm having a little issue with my Screen Setup and I was wondering if there's a fix to that.

I recently upgraded from to Photoshop CC after seeing a YouTube Video with someone working on the same Wacom Cintiq 24HD Touch I have using the newly introduced Experimental Touch features of PS CC.

Turns out it didn't worked THAT well on mine.

Panning, Zooming and Rotation in PS CC is totally screwed like the axis of them being totally off or outside my Screen and thus causing my Workspace to vanish off screen which is REALLY annoying.

Working with the Issue for a while I noticed that the issue could be related to me using multiple Monitors unlike the Video which only used one and the Cintiq with the Touch Interface NOT being either the center or rather the Main Monitor of the Setup.

Having the Cintiq not as the Main Monitor causes Photoshop CC to relocate the Rotational, Zoom and Move Axis to the Main Monitor and thus cause this agonizing behavior.With the Cintiq now set as the Main Monitor every Metro App I use ( including the Start Screen ) opens out of my normal Field of View.Is there a setting that allows me to keep the Cintiq ( 2 ) to be the Main Monitor because of Photoshop while having Metro Apps open by default on the Center Monitor ( 1 ) ?

I do know that hitting the Windows button in the Task bar will open the Start Screen on the screen it was hit and all Metro Apps opened from there will also open on the now active screen but working like this is kind of cumbersome as I prefer to use a Mouse button ( or the Keyboard Windows Key ) with the Windows Key assigned and there it just doesn't work like I want.

Split Screen Doesn't Work In Windows 8.1 Metro Mode?

Jul 27, 2013

I was initially very excited to hear that windows 8.1 allowed users to split the screen in any ratio they want (not just 80:20) in metro mode. However, no third-party apps seem to be compatible with this feature. Only Microsoft apps will expand to any ratios other than 80% or 20%. All third party apps will remain in the narrow 20% view even when you try to expand them to, say, take up 50% of the screen.

Windows 8.1 - Startup Apps Won't Start If Monitor / TV Is Turned Off

Sep 22, 2013

My system os is windows 8.1. I connect to this system remotely regularly. When it is off, I turn it on remotely with WOL and it autologins into windows.

This computer is connected to a LG LED TV through HDMI port.

My issue is, whenever the TV is off, and I turn on the computer (remotely or locally), system boots up fine but the start up apps (those that I have put in Windows startup folder) won't start. As soon as I turn on the TV, windows will start running those start up apps. Needless to say that if the TV is on and I boot into wondows, start up apps start normally with no problem.

Whatever I tried has failed on me. I even tried to turn off windows 8 Fast Startup in power options but it didn't work. I originally had this issue in windows 8. So I installed windows 8.1 hoping that this issue would be gone but it has not. I tried windows server 2012. In server 2012, this issue does not exist and I have no problem with startup apps.

Get Context Menu On Right Click For Start Screen?

Aug 21, 2012

I pinned an application to my start menu, occasionally I need to run that app with Admin privs. All I can find in the Start Screen is the "Run As Admin" option that appears at the bottom of the screen.

It's a real pain to have to click the app near the top of the screen and then slide all of the way to the bottom for "run as admin"..aside from pinning it to taskbar in Desktop (whch is probably where it belongs anyway)?

Maintenance :: New Context Menu In Win 8.1 SP1 In Start Screen Not Working

Apr 9, 2014

I installed the new Windows 8.1 Service Package 1 update earlier today. I was loving it. They finally got to addressing how bad Windows 8 was for laptops. However, the new context menu in the Start Screen simply does not appear anymore. It was earlier, and I have made no significant changes to the system in that time. When I right-click on a tile now, the only thing that happens is that it gets highlighted. No context menu to speak of. In addition, I can't get a context menu for the "Apps" section either.
