Maintenance :: Troubleshoot Option Under Advanced Startup Option Missing

Oct 23, 2013

The Troubleshoot icon that should be under the 'Advanced Startup' Option is missing. System is a new Dell Latitude 10 ST2 Tablet running Windows 8. Have access to 9 other identical tablets, all configured the same and they all have the Troubleshoot Option. Have tried multiple methods of getting to "Advanced Startup" display (including Safe mode, 'shutdown /r /o', etc.), but all result in only having the 'Continue', 'Use a Device', and 'Turn Off your PC' options - No Troubleshoot. Other than missing this icon, system is working fine. Shy of wiping the disk and starting over.

Search Windows 8 C Drive For Firefox V24 Custom Dictionary Location

Oct 4, 2013

I'm trying to migrate my old XP Firefox persdict.dat file content over to Windows 8. It is not where it was supposed to be.


The only persdict.dat file I can find is for Thunderbird. (I'm fairly certain the apps don't share a file.) I go to Firefox and type something into a random website's comments (dorkdorkdork), and right click and save that to the Firefox custom dictionary, but I'm not able to find that string anywhere on the PC? So if I go to C: and F3 to search for dorkdorkdork, it should be able to find that text on the machine right? Since the unique text is in a standard unencrypted text file.

Hardware Drivers :: Printer Driver - No Custom Paper Size Option

Apr 29, 2014

I'm facing a problem about my printer under Windows 8.1. I cannot create custom paper size.

My previous printer is a HP P2035 printer. According to HP, the driver is built into Windows 8.1 and thus does not offer any driver for Windows 8.1. The printer is detected correctly and I'm able to print, except I cannot create a custom paper size.

I raised this issue on the HP forum and a couple of members explained that the printer is pretty old and thus there is no incentive for Microsoft nor HP to develop a driver for Windows 8.1

Then I change to Fuji Xerox DocuPrint p355db. Again this printer is able to print just fine by Windows 8.1 built in driver, except the driver just won't allow me to create a custom paper size!

Sep 15, 2014

I have just noticed at few days ago that in Internet Explorer 11 if I go to "view" tab to change the size of the browser window I'm viewing , the "50%" and "Custom" selection is shaded and NOT available. I do not know what might have happened to change this, or how to change it back.

My file search is not finding files which I know are there, including files that I find and then try a search to see if windows eight can also find them. I have tried all the solutions' offered by googling 'windows 8 not finding file' such as the troubleshooter . One suggestion was to change the location of where to search to 'everywhere' but this option is greyed out.

Browsers/Mail :: Missing Search Bar In IE 10?

May 16, 2013

I can figure out how to make the search bar viewable in the desktop version of IE10.

Instead the searches are appearing in the address bar, which I don't want. I went to Tools > Manage add ons and selected google, but it didn't create a separate search bar.

Is that feature gone completely?

Option To Show Metro Apps In Taskbar Missing

Jul 31, 2014

Apparently there's supposed to be a checkbox that reads "Show store apps on taskbar" but that isn't there! I have a version of Windows 8.1 that doesn't have this option. I really liked this feature. This worked for me until I installed a fresh installation of Windows 8.1.

Apps / Software :: Missing Tiles / Can't Find App Using Search

Sep 13, 2013

I was working on desktop mode and suddenly my screen went black. After about 4 seconds everything returned to normal but when I went to the Start screen all of my application tiles were missing. Except for Desktop & Store tiles, all the others had disappeared. I tried to search the missing apps and pin it to Start but it cannot be found. They wont even show in All apps.

I don't think the apps are deleted because from desktop I can open image/audio files with Photos and Music app.

Not sure if the problem maybe a result of me accidently changing the AppData folder to visible a couple of minutes earlier.

Network / Sharing :: Windows 8.1 (Find Devices And Content) Option Missing

Feb 26, 2014

I am trying to use PS Media Server with Windows 8.1, but honestly whatever app I am using is irrelevant. The problem is, when I try to connect my PS3 to PS3 Media Server, it seems to require me to go into the right side menu, click settings, then change PC settings, then click network and then under connections, click my network connection and turn on "Find Devices and Content".

However, as you can see from my screen shot, that option is missing.

I am on my PERSONAL laptop, connected to a private network (it doesn't matter if I use my wireless or wired connection direct to the router it doesn't show up either way). I have tried enabling and leaving a homegroup, neither of which works.

Windows 8.1

Windows 8 Search Won't Search Control Panel Items

Nov 9, 2013

Windows 8 search refuses to search items in my control panel. For example, if I tap the windows key and type "power options" or "Sound" I get nothing. I'm pretty sure this is supposed to work as it's mentioned in many of Microsoft's own documents as the easiest way to navigate to these settings.

Other searches are working, including files on secondary drives, etc.

Start Screen Search Won't Search IE Favorites Websites

Apr 8, 2013

It seems I have to open File Explorer and use the search box there to search the contents of my IE Favorites folder. Is there anyway to add the same capability to the Start Screen Search. So far all I can do is put in the word "favorites" and start screen search finds the Favorites folder but it can't find any of the internet shortcuts (*.url files) within the Favorites folder. Is this normal? If so how can I change the normal behavior so it works like the start button search from Vista and Win7?

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.

However when I checked disk management , I get the following partitions:

EFI System 50mb

What are in those 2 Recovery Partitions ? Are they the 2 restore points I created? Why is the second Recovery Partition so much larger than the first?

Creating a sleep shortcut. It works great but I would like to make one minor change. Instead of waking computer by using the power button, is there a way that I can go back to waking with the keyboard (like it is if I sleep from start menu). I changed the power settings and everything to disable hibernate as well.
