Windows 8 Pro - External USB Drive Folders Will Open On Desktop When Exits Sleep Mode

Mar 25, 2013

I am running Windows 8 Pro, with two USB external drives attached. One drive is "dormant", and the other is used for file backups. I have noticed that when the computer exits from sleep mode, either one or both external USB drive folders will open on the desktop. I can only guess this signifies that these drives may have been accessed while the computer was in sleep mode.

Browsers/Mail :: Email Links Not Opening Browser

Jun 22, 2014

I am using Incredimail, but when I click on any links in received emails they no longer open up Internet Explorer 11. Nothing happens at all.

I have not made any changes recently, and up to a couple of weeks ago they worked okay. I have run virus and spyware checks and tried system restore, but no joy.

Uninstalled and reinstalled Incredimail, but no joy. Made sure file associations are set to open IE11, still no joy.

Browsers/Mail :: Icon On Start Screen Doesn't Open Email - Windows 8

Aug 8, 2014

Likes to use the Windows 8 Start Screen that has all the tiles on it. Normally, she clicks on the "Mail" icon to get to her email, but now when she clicks on the icon it doesn't go to her email and instead it goes straight to her desktop. I tried clicking another icon; the "weather" one, and it too goes to the desktop. She told me she downloaded a couple games from iWin a few days ago and I noticed a new toolbar in her browser so I tried disabling that, but no change. I've checked what the default browser is, Internet Explorer (what she normally uses). I also tried making Chrome the default browser but still no change.

Browsers/Mail :: How To Email Photo Attachments From Desktop

Jun 12, 2013

If I select a photo from 'Pictures' in File Explorer', right click & select 'Send to: Mail recipient', Mail opens up but only the title of the photo is shown as an attachment, no picture. Even if I click on the title nothing happens. This is the same in 'Outlook' or 'Gmail'. I can send a picture attachment ok by clicking on the 'paperclip' in 'Mail' which then takes me to 'Photos' but I would like to send it from the File Explorer.

With a website opened on the desktop that I want to send the 'link' or 'page' by email, I go to 'Page', (top right), but both the 'Send page by email' & the 'Send link by email' are greyed-out.

Tablets :: Windows 8 Tablet Desktop Mode?

Feb 26, 2014

How to make Windows 8 desktop more usable? I was thinking of adding a mac os x style dock, since that seems a lot easier to use on a tablet. The icons are all pretty big and easily clickable.

Was thinking of modding the skin of windows 8 to make it look like mac os x. It seems like mac os x desktop is more touchscreen friendly,as in everything is accessible easily. Making the desktop bigger/up font just makes it look too big.

Tablets :: Surface Pro 2 - Use Camera In Desktop Mode?

Apr 5, 2014

I just got my tablet and the first thing I did is have it start in Desktop-mode so I never have to see that awful and useless toy Metro UI. Even on a tablet the desktop is superior. Go figure. I hate every time I accidentally click that "Start" button which brings me to Metro.

Anyway, the only way I can use the built-in camera from desktop is to "search" for camera and the Metro camera app shows up and I can take pictures. I even created a desktop short cut in desktop mode for that camera. But since that is a Metro app, it doesn't seem to work from Desktop.

1. is there a way to make this Metro camera app work from Desktop?

2. Is there a different desktop app or program to use camera from desktop?

It also would be nice to be able to zoom and have flashlight etc. this camera doesn't seem as great as my phone camera. Or am I missing something?

Desktop Mode And Start Screen App Displayed At Same Time

Aug 15, 2013

I was messing around with the Win 8.1 preview in a VM tonight and noticed that you can have the Desktop Mode opened half screen along with Modern UI apps on the other half of the screen. I haven't heard about this capability, only 2 Modern UI apps sharing the screen at any one time.

Desktop Applications Will Not Open Maximized

Apr 2, 2014

My friend's Win 8 desktop refuses to open desktop applications maximized. I've done all the usual tricks that used to work, like maximizing them and cntrl-clicking or alt-clicking to shut them down, but they always reopen in a less than maximized state. I am referring to Internet Explorer, Outlook, Word, etc.

Browsers/Mail :: Google Chrome Will Not Stay In Desktop Mode

Dec 3, 2013

I'm trying to set Chrome as my default browser and have it open in Desktop mode, but it always opens in Metro Mode if it's the default. I've tried the "Relaunch Chrome in the desktop" (lots of times), but it just beeps and stays in Metro mode. This used to work, but it suddenly changed a few weeks ago, and I simply can't work out how to get it back. I didn't change anything. (Windows or Chrome may have behind the scenes, but I didn't fiddle with any of the levers). Chrome just started launching in Metro mode one morning, and nothing I do will change that if it's the default.

The only way I can open Chrome in Desktop Mode is to set IE as the the default browser. And that is most definitely not what I want. I'm a web dev, and love the Chrome dev tools, so want it as the default.

To make things even more confusing, I've got 2 Win 8.1 machines side by side, and Chrome works exactly as I want on one of them, and not on the other. I've looked everywhere I can think of, and both systems are set up identically, from what I can see.

Open Metro And Desktop Apps At The Same Time?

Oct 27, 2012

... without closing/minimize the metro app? When I'm working with Photoshop I always have my email open because of the meeting notes. The problem I'm having now is that everytime I focus back on Photoshop, the mail app closes/minimizes by itself. The same thing goes with Skype

I know that you can open that tiny multitasking window on the side, but it's just not efficient. Is there a way to remedy this?
