Horizontal Line Separator Windows Explorer Navigation Bar
Nov 11, 2013
I have this dark horizontal line that appears in windows explorer every time I'm in a window, It appears right at the bottom of the navigation bar, its not glaring though, just that its distracting and every time I hover around it, I See the "move" cursor which doesn't do anything. How do I get rid of this line? It was never there as at the last time I restarted my PC.
when i make a search for directories, then i double click on the wanted directory; now i would like to navigate as normal, instead explorer keeps in the path box "search-display.." not allowing me to navigate or to expand directory tree, how can i instruct it to exit search mode and continue from that path?
Just installed 8.1 and the "This PC" section of the navigation pane in file explorer has changed. In addition to listing the disk drives, it now lists six folders. how to remove the folders from the drive list?
The Navigation Pane on the left side of Windows Explorer has six major categories from top to bottom as follows: Favorites, SkyDrive, Home Group, This PC, Libraries and Network. When I open Windows Explorer, the cursor is positioned on the Library Category. I would prefer the default cursor position to be on Favorites. I assume that there is no easy way to make this change, at least without editing the Registry somewhere.
I've just jumped to Windows 8.1 from 7 and am trying to work out how to unclutter my windows explorer navigation pane.
The bit in question is the "This PC" - it used to just have my c:drive and other network drives, but now it has all these other network devices (security cameras, and sonos amps etc) plus also Desktop, Downloads, Music, Pictures, Videos folders (which are sort of duplicated under favourites).
Is there a setting somewhere to not show all these extra items, and just go back to showing my C:drive and mapped network drives?
How do you turn your microphone port or line in, to a headphone port or line out port. For a while I would plug in headphones into the mic port and it would bring up a dialog saying I could change it to another headphone port but it never worked. Now it doesn't even pop up. I want this so when I go on long trips my girlfriend and I could watch a movie together using 2 pairs of headphones.
My laptop's desktop is vertical, in other words looking at my screen normally the desktop is oriented horizontally as well. In order to view the screen normally I need to orient the laptop so it is like a book. Did something get put into a different mode? Is there a way to get the desktop back to normal?
When I am typing it appears that there is some type of shortcut that I am hitting which then pops up that navigation bar on the right hand side (where settings, search, etc. is). I would like to disable any of these shortcuts so this doesn't happen at all when I am typing.
I am very new to Windows 8. I'm trying to print a line drawing that is saved as a jpeg. I need to print it at 250%, but how to do so. When I try to print it, it does not give me the printer options like previous versions of Windows did. Advanced options only allow me to choose orientation and page order. It does allow me to choose size as far as full page, 8x10, 5x7, 4x6, contact sheet, etc, but this is not what I need. I need to be able to print actual size and scale up (or down) from there.
Windows8 navigation. Can not find familiar file directory to access files, instead apps and app store! Could some one direct me how I can turn off start screen and go back old fashion ways. Else I will have to go back to my Vista.
I recently connected a SATA HDD to my computer to retrieve files from another computer (mother board died). Now I have multiple entries on my navigation pane for My Computer and C Drive. I have attached a screenshot of my Nav Pane: Click on Prints Phil, This PC and S3A7083D005(C) all get a list of the same (desktop, favorites, documents etc). C Drive got itself renamed to a string of numbers and This PC did not exist before either. My computer's name was Sneezyphil.
I upgraded from Windows 8 to Windows 8.1 two days before I plugged in the SATA HDD so there was no previous restore point unless I reinstall Win 8.1 - but looking at your threads on that issue, might multiply my problems.
i have a variety of apps in the startup folder which is set to launch on startup. eventually, i'd like windows to focus on Chrome (specifically on the address bar) so that i can start using it right away.
i remember there's a command which could be added to the shortcut properties but can't recall.
I have an audio source connected to Line In and I use the volume mixer to un-mute the input when I want to listen to the audio from that source. I recently started having a problem where after re-booting Line In does not show up in my volume mixer and I do not hear audio from the Line In Source even though I have listen to this device active. (during boot up I do hear the audio for a fraction of a second)
To get Line In to work and show up in the volume mixer again, I have to go to manage audio devices under control panel and select the record tab. from there I can see Line In and I see that it is set as the default device and I can see that there is audio based on the indicator bars to the right of Line In. I then have to go to the Listen tab for Line In and uncheck "Listen to this device" and click on Apply, then Check "Listen to this device" and Click Apply. After doing all of this the Audio can be heard and Line In appears on the Volume Mixer until the next reboot where I have to perform those steps all over again.
I have the latest drivers and all MS updates for Windows 8.1 on a Gigabyte GA-Z87X-UD5H Motherboard with Realtek R3.87 Driver dated 5/13/2014...
How do i uninstall programs from the command line? I know how to do it in windows, and i did that, but they still are there in my start/metro screen. When i click on them they open into a command prompt window. If i click uninstall from metro it just takes me around to add/remove programs where they have already been deleted?
I noticed yesterday that there is a very fine thin line on the left side of my desktop. In the screen shot you can barely make it out, but you will be able to once you see ot from the left corner of task bar. it does not appear when i open a browser or a folder or even start menu. It only shows on the desktop screen and is really annoying. I tried disabling some odd services and restarted the computer as well, but still no luck.
I am trying to record from a cassette player on to my hp envy h8-1500z. I have a cable going from the headphone jack on the player to the blue line in jack on the pc. I have gone to the recording devices and have the line in jack enabled. That is as far as I can get because it says it is not plugged in? I have plugged it into the mic jack and it recognized that. I have tryed updating the drivers to no avail.
In many programs there are keyboard shortcuts . They are shown as capital letters with a line underneath. How does one use them? I've tried the letter with control key, shift key and alt key and frequently combinations of them but cant get any response.
I cannot seem to get the "taskbar and navigation properties" pane, only the "taskbar properties" pane. I am running as administrator and have upgraded from Windows 8 to Windows 8.1 on a new laptap that I have just purchased, but am still having trouble getting the "taskbar and navigation properties" when I right click the taskbar.
The "taskbar properties" only gives me three tabs ie. taskbar, jump lists and properties, but I need to access the navigation tab on the "taskbar and navigation properties" pane.
I have a Dell XPS12 Ultrabook (amongst other things) and out of the blue a white line of pixels popped up on my desktop. It is there no matter what windows or programs I have open through the desktop however when I go to the start screen or open any other tile it goes away....I've tried restarting, changing the resolution, etc and can't make the line go away. Its still under warranty if it was the screen, but in the past my experience with blown out pixels (white lines on the screen) has been a screen replacement because its there no matter what....this goes away in the start screen or any other tile.... None of my other laptops/tablets with windows 8 have done this before.
I have followed all the steps in the tutorial on removing Favorites from the navigation pane.
Favorites - Add or Remove from Navigation Pane in Windows 8
The right-click solution does not work because "show favourites" option does not come up when I right click. The second solution using the folder option is not possible because there is no option to check or uncheck I have even tried with th bat. file, but no change took place.
