Scroll Through Windows Tabs With Right Hand Mouse?

Oct 16, 2013

I want to scroll through tabs on internet browser with right hand mouse alone

I don't want to discuss the specifics why but basically I don't want to use my left hand at all sometimes during certain web browsing sessions.

How do I browse through internet web browser tabs with just right hand mouse? Without having to click on each tab. I just want to use either a button, scroll wheel, or an extension/add on that will make scrolling through tabs only right handed.

Unable To Access Menu On Right Hand Side Of Screen

Aug 12, 2014

I turned my laptop right off last night (I usually just put it into sleep mode) and now, since rebooting this morning, I can't get the menu to slide in from the right hand side. Instead, the Power and Search icons are showing at the top of the start screen along side my name and avatar.

I've recently had to have a new hard drive but the menu has been working OK until now.

Is there a setting somewhere that I need to change to get this back?

Hardware Drivers :: Mouse Wheel Button Not Working For Left Hand Use?

Aug 28, 2014

I'm having a problem with getting the mouse wheel button to work correctly in 8.1

I've switched to left handed use to alleviate shoulder pain.

Before this I had the mouse and keyboard center installed. I use a cheap USB keyboard and a microsoft USB optical wheel mouse. Configured for the right hand, everything works correctly. The right button is the normal select, the right is context and I configured the wheel button to double click.

When I switch to left hand I lose the wheel button double click. The select / context buttons are properly working, but when I click the wheel it appears to be the same as a context button click. I thought maybe the settings got messed up when I switched the buttons so I tried setting the wheel button to another function (open charms in this case). That works. Switched the wheel button back to double click and it goes back to open context menu.

I uninstalled and re-installed the mouse and keyboard center. That made no difference. Seems like a bug here.

On, this is on a new (mid-april) HP laptop so there is a touchpad that I almost never use because I generally have the mouse, keyboard, and external monitor attached with the lid closed.

Network / Sharing :: WiFi Bar In Lower Right Hand Side Turns To Yellow Exclamation Mark Over It

Jan 16, 2014

My wifi on my laptop keeps acting up. at a random time the wifi bar in the lower right hand side turns to a yellow exclamation mark over it, after hovering over it it says 'limited'. Usually if i just turn off the wifi then immediately on again it will sort it out.

Can't work out if its a driver issue, my isp or a windows 8.1 issue. The laptop i have is an assus k53sv. the driver i have installed is 'Qualcomm Atheros AR9002WB-1NG'.

Apps / Software :: Latest Windows Updates Removes Hand To Close Apps?

Apr 21, 2014

I've recently noticed a Windows update that changes the way you close apps, amongst a number of other things.

What it was:

What it is now:

This update was unticked in the 'Update and Recovery' section. Every other update had a checkbox ticked, this one didn't.

Other changes bought along by installing this update:

- New applications in the 'Apps' section of the Start menu are now highlighted with a greybox.
- Shut down options now in the start menu (and search, I'm not sure)

One extra thing that seems to be around depending on... something.

This one's related with Chrome. Usually when you start typing in the url box, your search terms are cut off with a rounded border going around. This box has disappeared with the latest update, but I have seen this happening in earlier versions of Windows.



Opinions on these changes?

How To Undo The Custom Size From 500%

May 12, 2014

I increased the custom sizing to 500 and now I can't undo it, and I can't do anything at all actually. I do not have a system restore point either, my Windows 8 doesn't let me for some reason... this is a serious glitch I cannot believe there is nothing to prevent this.

I did have a system restore, got to it by holding Shift when selecting restart. I was nervous about using it but it said none of my documents would be erased so I guess it worked out. Microsoft owes me a tablet!!! Seriously though, quit making new products until you can actually build one that works properly.

Custom Scaling Of DPI Of Modern UI In 8.1?

Nov 19, 2013

I am running Win 8.1 on a Yoga 2 Pro convertible laptop with a 3200 x 1800 res screen. Although my DPI scaling is set to 250%, the Modern UI tiles and text (Start screen) are still too small. In addition, many of the apps show text that is too small, as well.

This Eightforums article showed a terrific registry hack to adjust this in Windows 8. Unfortunately, the article warns that it does not work in Windows 8.1.

Any way to increase the text size of the Modern UI? As it is right now, it's unusable.

Debugging :: BSOD On Custom Build?

Nov 11, 2013

I recently had a computer custom built at my local Fry's (not so local though..) 2 weeks ago.

On the second day, the CPU was BSOD hourly, and after bring it to Fry's, they said the power supply was bad, and they replaced it.

I'm still having issues with random BSOD and would rather not bring it to Fry's to have them trouble shoot it for a few days, replace the "bad" component, and give it back to me with the same issue.

My CPU and Motherboard temps average 30-35c even while gaming.

I'm beyond the "return" time frame and only have 2 weeks of build support left from Fry's.

Here are my CPU specs

Custom Built PC With Windows 8.1 Continually Freezes

Aug 27, 2014

My PC freezes when I'm just browing the web. It doesn't happen when I'm decoding a video, or when I'm playing a game, or running an emulator. It always happens when I'm browsing, or during idle. All of a sudden there's a slowdown, and the right mouse click menu takes a while to appear. When the right click menu appears it's kind of transparant/greyish and then it fully appears but none of the options work. For example I right click on the desktop and click task manager, but it never appears. I can minimize/maximize windows but cannot close or open new ones. Then it's completely frozen, I can't do anything other than move the mouse around.

Yet Metro UI still works, somewhat until it slows down and completely freezes again. I cannot restart or shut down PC, I have to do it manually by holding down power button or pressing the reset button.

I get no error messages... I used to have malware antibytes installed but removed it. I have all the drivers up to date (motherboard, sound, graphics card, intel, and windows updates of course).

Deleted graphics drivers and installed latest ones and the problem still persists.

These are my specs:

Intel i7 4790k
R9 290
8GB RAM 1600 Mhz
Windows 8.1
EVGA Nova G2 750 Watt PSU
MSI Z97 gaming 5 motherboard
Corair Hydro h100i

I have dual monitors set up, one at 1920x1080 and another one at 1600 x900 on DVI from graphics card. It's happening very frequently now, after about 15 minutes, no matter what I do.

Maintenance :: Windows 8.1 - Cannot Set Custom Recovery Image

Dec 23, 2013

I created a custom refresh image the day before upgrading to 8.1. I am having shut down and sleep issues with windows 8.1 that I don't have time to troubleshoot any longer and I wish to go back to win 8 for now. I went to check that my image was there and active and this is what i get:

It showed successful when I created it? I can find in in the location that is it supposed to be:


Now I'm stuck. I don't want to use the factory image and reinstall everything, and I can't cope with the bsods and hangs when trying to sleep or shutdown ( I have tried every option in that massive thread about windows 8.1 not sleeping ) ...

Installing Custom Themes On Windows 8.1 Laptop

Apr 14, 2014

I have a windows 8.1 laptop and I'm trying to install this theme to it right now. I'm new to custom themes but I've already used UxStyle to patch and ran the RIbbon Disabler as per the instructions. However, for some reason, whenever I install themes all I get is the basic colors that the theme is supposed to be, as if I just went under the personalize settings and changed the window color to white. There are no rounded windows as shown in the image and the minimize, restore down, and close buttons look the same as always (in the picture they are shown as grey & red circles). I'm probably missing something because I'm so new to this, but I've followed the basic instructions for installing themes.

Setup Installation :: How To Make A Custom Reset Folder

Nov 12, 2013

I know that by using recimg, you can make a custom refresh image. And I hear that you cannot use it to reset Windows to factory state. is that so? if so, how do I do that?

Also, is it possible to store the recovery image in a hidden partition. hidden in the sense, the drive letter is not automatically assigned when you refresh/reset Windows, nor can you do it from Disk Management. only from diskpart. however, if i can still use reset while keeping the recovery image in a hidden folder in C: drive, that is still fine i guess.

The thing is, the recovery partition of my Dell Latitude 10 tablet is destroyed (it's Dell's fault though) and even though i can easily recover Windows as I have an iso image and can use the USB to reinstall windows like we normally do on our desktops, i want to sell the tablet and i want to make it recoverable via the recovery features in Windows 8. without the ability to recover, the value of the tablet will be pretty low. if all else fails, i will have to buy a cheap USB flash drive, make it a recovery drive and give it with the tablet. sucks!

It is fine if i have to update to Windows 8.1, if it makes it possible in Windows 8.1 even though it was not in Windows 8.
