Browsers/Mail :: Move IE 11 Metro Address Bar To Top Of Page
Nov 2, 2013
As I'm used to having the address bar @ the top of the page, (like it is in the desktop version)..it looks like MS would have offered an option to do so in the 'metro' version. I hope that some user can come up with a 'hack' to get that done.
I have Windows 8 which I have been using for 4 months now with little problem.
Last night I noticed the internet address bar does not have previously typed urls there no more, all it has is the start page url. So, when you click on the down arrow at the far right of the screen to select your previously entered address like say google.com, it shows nothing. So now every time I wish to visit a previously viewed page, I have to type in the url.
When I click on email links on websites, instead of my mail program coming up with the address in the "to" line, I get a mail sign in page. To avoid it, I have to right click and copy email address, then go to my mail program and paste it in.
I finally managed to import all my contacts from roadrunner and Live to Outlook, but the contacts appear under PEOPLE. How do I get them to the address book so that when I click TO: to send an email the contacts appear?????
Since last Win 8 update Outlook 2003 no longer autofills the address. I erased the nst file and started a new nst file with each new email sent but it still will not autofill address. I also reinstalled Outlook 2003 and still no joy. Outlook also locks up for a few moments when I enter the first letter and try to autofill.
we run Exchange and have Office 2010. Is there a way to export the entire address book to a csv file that will include all information, such as mobile number? I messed with it, but the numbers were not exporting I only see names. Active Directory is where we add the information, then it syncs with exchange. Do I do it via the active director? If so, how? If via outlook, how? Again, I am wanting to be able to export all numbers attached to the name.
Why can I not sync my Global Address Book? When I add info via active directory, it updates in the GAB, not in the contact list, and the contact list is what shows on the phone....and is what we need to update as we add info!!!!! Why isn't this possible? That isn't "syncing" that is just refreshing what is already there! We have around 500 employees, and having to log into each of there emails and add new contacts manually is NOT ok.
How do I sync my droid with exchange's GAB? Like I said, I can copy all of the GAB to contacts, but that doesn't do anything? It doesn't update in there when you add or change information..
When I type something in Google chrome address bar how do i stop suggestions appearing in the address bar Ive gone into settings and advanced setting and unticked the things i am supposed to untick but nothing works I've gone on to extensions and added a history cleaner but this doesn't stop suggestions.
I have a Toshiba laptop and Windows 8.1 operating system. When I click on the Internet Explorer tile on the Start page, either the latest accessed application's webpage is displayed, or an error message saying that the website address not found. Therefore if I want to access a webpage, I cannot enter its address in the address bar of Internet Explorer. instead I hold down the Microsoft Logo and press s for search. I works, but I do not understand the contradiction between the error message and the fact that internet Explorer is actually working.
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.
I have a new ASUS notebook and it uses Windows 8. On my home pc I have Windows Vista and was able to set up multiply email accounts in Window Live Mail. (my charter, my hubby charter, 2 school google accounts and yahoo).
I was able to read mail coming thru our main email acct (my charter), if an email came thru that needed to go to my hubbys account or another account I was able to drop and drag it to the other account listed on the screen.
I have most of my emails set up on my new ASUS notebook. Is there any way to drop and drag emails from one account to another? I can drag the email and hover over the new email account, but it does not drag it.
I have recently upgraded from XP to 8.1. Nightmare. I have dozens of issues but the main one exercising me at the moment is how to print only the first page of an email. I cannot find any options to do this. If there is an email thread extending to 34 pages, I only want to print the first page.
this should be easy. i'm getting pop-ups like crazy. more than I've ever had before. some things asking if I want to upgrade when I know it is fake and I don't need the update. so how do I fix the thing to keep the pop-ups down. and I know how to set up the taskbar to hide itself, but now it will not do it. the task bar comes down and stays there and will not move.
When I'm on the main/first page and put my cursor on a link (cursor won't turn into hand) then when I click it just started saying Opp's then top left circle spins then goes to a page to download something I don't want or bogus.
Another big problem, certain words will be highlighted and a window pop's up (different windows) and want allow me to go to the webpage I want.
This has been happening sense I purchased my new computer wit Win.8
Example: the words on the page highlighted is where I want to go, but a small window pops up and says Best cities to work or Free Local Job Search. Its has a icon to close the windows but when I do it will go to another download type page.
Is there a setting in IE or Firefox to turn that problem OFF ? See on this page there IS NOT a word that is highlighted and what I click I go to.
When I want to access my (virgin media) email I have to go back to my desktop. Altho it's in my favourties I want to have the shortcut on my task bar. I can't move the shortcut by dragging it there. Is there any other way I can get it on my task bar?
Is there any way to connect my Gmail account to the Mail Metro App without having to use my Live ID? I have absolutely no desire to tie all my stuff to a MS Live ID. Just want to be able to check my mail.
I have already installed Skype desktop to get around the Live ID crap for the metro version, and I will install Thunderbird if needed, but if I can find a way around it I will use the built in mail client.
Ever since I installed Windows 8, I have had no issues, except just one.
I notice when trying to log into facebook, the page will just hang there and pretends I never pressed the login button. And when I do finally get into facebook, and I try to click on the groups I am apart of, it just seems to hang on loading the groups, it just doesnt seem to load any pages.
This happens on every browser I install. However all browsers act completely normal on any other web pages I go to.
I have jumped onto my Windows 7 computer and again I have no issues whatsoever.
I agree it would be weird that its just happening with facebook, however its the only website that just continually causes problems on my Windows 8 machine.
On that PC, I have been using Office Professional Plus 2010 & Outlook to access my email account (POP)
I just purchased a Windows 8 laptop. Since the Windows 8 Mail app will not work with POP email accounts, my email/internet access provider (Comcast) recommended using Windows Live Mail (I'm using 2012 version). This works fine for new emails. However, I have not been able to find a way to "move" the historical emails from my Outlook 2010 (PC) to WinMailLive (laptop.)
Exporting the emails from Outlook 2010 creates a .PST file which is not recognized by WinMailLive.
I tried using MailStore, but it will only archive email from the Inbox for POP accounts.
Any way to move emails from Outlook 2010 to WNL 2012, that is easier than forwarding all the historical emails to myself from the Outlook PC & then reorganize them in WML on the laptop?
I added classic shell and I actually have no problems with navigating and it feels fast. I like it. BUT, firefox and chrome will not load web pages properly and sometimes not at all.....I don't notice this happening on IE, but only fox and chrome. What happens is, when you're surfing web pages, suddenly, you get something like server doesn't exist or yahoo handler error, or the page will just load weird with blue texts. You can refresh and the page will sometimes load fully, OR you can just close, clear cookies and then everything is fine, then a few webpages later, it starts all over again. When the web pages do load, they load fast and as normal.
I've tried SEVERAL things from reading online. I did the DNS flush, I disabled d-bugging in the device manager under adapters, ran ccleaner to clean all history (even the past 24 hrs), I uninstalled both broswers and reinstalled. The only AD on I have on chrome and firefox is adblock, but it's not that because I removed This isn't happening on my windows 7 desktop
