Accounts :: Changing Passwordchg Option On Built-In Admin?

Aug 9, 2014

i would like to change the Passwordchg option so to prevent my password to be changed (i know this option could be changed but is a little more complicated), anyway, when i put the command Code: net user "Administrator" /Passwordchg:no

on my command prompt it throws (may be a not accurate translation) Code: Operation not permitted, could disable, delete or deny access to the administrator account

Now i dont see why since i could also disable this option (if it would be possible to enable it) and also i know and will NEVER forget my password. Anyway is there a way to achieve this in another way?

Changing Folder Names In Win 8 Explorer?

May 4, 2013

In Windows 8 Explorer ( have they changed the name of it ) you know, the file manager. In the left side, the top of the "tree" you have Desktop, Downloads, etc ....

I created a folder when the pc was new called Jack's Stuff. Later, much later, I decided I didn't like the name with "stuff" ... so I changed it to Jack's Place. Instead of the typical My(fill in the blank). So it changed there. But following through the tree to it's origin down finding it through USERS>Jack ... etc. It's still in all cases called Jack's Stuff. Now this is not typical for XP and before that. I jumped right from XP to Windows 8.

Why didn't the name change everywhere and not just at the top of the tree? Is there a way to insure the name changes everywhere if you rename a folder. Oh, I tried going through USERS>Jack and changing it but I forget right now but it didn't work out completely kosher.

File Explorer - New Item Option Has Folder Only

Feb 28, 2013

I have an external HD connected to my Windows 8 machine. It's split into 2 partitions with lots of files and folder on each. On one partition while in Windows Explorer the "New Item" option only has "Folder" as one of it's items. Same if I right click, "Folder" is the only item. On the other partition "New Item" shows a list of items including text file, bitmap file, shortcut etc. Something happened recently as I have text files I've created since a few weeks ago. Also, if I create a new folder, while in that folder the "New Item" shows the list of items text file, bitmap file, shortcut etc. How to change this?

Accounts :: Deleted User Account / Selected Keep Files Option But Folder Empty?

Mar 20, 2014

Windows 8.1

Started a new account, with admin privileges. Deleted old account also with admin privileges. Selected the "KEEP FILES" option. Deleted account. A folder pops up in desktop, with the computer's name. Under that folder there was another folder with old user name, and under that folder there was yet another folder also with old user name. Completely empty.


I don't have a restore point to which to retrieve my files. The c: disk says there is 600GBs of free space, previously I had only 300. All the library from my old user account have been wiped. I also checked Recycle Bin which is empty. The current account has admin privileges and is set to show hidden files. I was told that it might be under c:Users. I checked that with CMD and two folders were titled "." and "..", they don't show under file explorer.

I am running Recuva right now, but from what I understand that won't be able to restore file names and fragmented files, which are both critical. I also had an encrypted file with a none standard extension which might be ignored by Recuva.

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.

US ENG Input Language Changing

May 1, 2013

I have a Sony VAIO VPCSE and I have installed Windows 8 Professional. My region, language, input methods etc are set to English(Ireland)

The Problem When I turn on my laptop, there is the word "ENG" beside my clock and my input language is set to English (United States). When I click ENG; I am giving the option to switch between English(Ireland) and English (United States).

When I go to language preferences, the English (United States) language does not show as being one of my preferences

However, when I add the language and then press "Remove", the ENG beside the clock disappears

I don't mind what it is; editing the registry, deleting the English(United States) language.

Windows 8.1 Language Keeps Changing?

Jul 5, 2014

my Keyboard language input keeps changing from English (UK) to English (US)... pretty much all of my passwords have an @ sign in them so you can imaging how annoying this is lol.

This seems heavily related to my mouse - SteelSeries - World of Warcraft : Cataclysm? MMO Gaming Mouse / the control panel for that mouse as it only started happening after installing this mouse (both home and work pc).

I have tried to add English (US) >> Set it as Primary >> Then remove English (US).

Doing this removes the English (US) keyboard completely which is what I want/expect but then it comes back again after a short while?

Is it possible to change the English (US) keys to match that of the English (UK) so even if it does change to English (US) it wouldn't be a problem anyway?

Accounts :: Lag When Changing Users?

Feb 21, 2014

Have my account and my wife's at home computer. Home build, excellent hardware, all updated and tuned in (as far as I can tell). Lately, when switching between accounts have been experiencing a 20 to 30 second lag before any response from any program. Example, I log in to my account, I click on is a wait before response. In fact, if I click again before I get a response two instances of mail, or two browsers or any program comes up. It has not always been like this and, occasionally, it syncs in all programs as soon I log on.

Changing DPI Scaling For 8.1 File Explorer

Mar 8, 2014

So I have a high res display on my laptop and the File Explorer looks like the fuzzy poop you get. Usually you right click the app in the task bar, then right click the name, click compat tab, and then disable dpi scaling, but the compat tab is missing for some reason for File Explorer and only that app. So it looks fuzzy and crappy.

Maintenance :: Changing Sleep And Hibernate?

Aug 23, 2013

how to alter the time period before a computer running Windows 8 switches into "Sleep" or "Hibernate" mode. I find the default time period to be too short in practice - it is very frustrating to answer a brief phone call and then return to the computer only to find it has dropped into one or other of these states!

Changing Font Of Desktop Elements

Dec 5, 2013

I observe Windows 8 use different font now and I can't find the old fashioned dialog for detailed customizing all desktop elements like it was used up to Windows 7. The display control panel only offers change size on couple of basic elements. Also, any hint turning off smooth scrolling of list and combo boxes, it's annoying slow.

How To Stop 8.1 From Changing Volume Setting

Dec 16, 2013

I recently upgraded to Windows 8.1 from Win 8 (shoulda done more homework, but too late now!). Now when my speakers are plugged into my headphone jack, my volume control gets set back to 42ish. When I try to set it higher, I get a nanny warning about high volume causing hearing damage, and have to select "allow", which lets me change the setting, but sets it right back when I go to sleep mode or shut down. Most annoying as I use my laptop with speakers all the time as an entertainment center. Samsung, Windows 8.1 64bit, just updated audio driver, too.

Windows 8 - Files Are Changing Their Locations

Jul 16, 2013

Win 8 users. I am having a strange problem where I move files (user files, documents, etc) to subfolders and a little while later they are back in their prior location. I rebooted the computer and it is still doing this.

Sometimes the file will appear in the parent and child directory. If I delete it from the parent directory, it vanishes from the child directory as well. I have to rescue it from the trash. I drag it from the trash to the desired child directory and shortly after that, it is visible in the parent directory and child.

I can't manage files this way. I simply want to organize files but their location changes on its own.

Network / Sharing :: Changing Settings In Windows 8.1

Nov 3, 2013

Network Location - Set to Private or Public in Windows 8

I have a home network, several PCs connected to a modem/router (all with Ethernet cables), with ADSL access.

One PC has got Windows 8.1, with network settings as "private network", with sharing ("find devices and content") turned on. I am thinking about turning it off, to increase security, since I don't need to share files an printers.

My questions:
1) There is no risk to damage Windows by turning sharing on or off, with that "find devices and content" option in Windows 8.1?
2) After changing the sharing settings, I do not need to change any settings in Windows Firewall, such as resetting it to default?
