I've recently installed Start Menu 8 to create a win 7 menu and bypass the tiles, but now I don't see IE 10 listed anywhere. Where could it go? I didn't think you could get rid of IE10. I use Chrome as my default browser, but I would like to open IE 10 if needed.
I found a way to get my list of programs on to the tool/task bar. From there I dragged one of the programs to the desktop thinking it would just create a shortcut. It didn't. It took the program off the dropdown list and put it on the desktop. I can't find a way to put it back in the drop down list of programs. I realize it's not earth shattering but it is definitely a huge annoyance to me since I want to have a 'shortcut' on both the programs drop down list and on the desktop.
How do I add a website that will open in the 'Favourites' list in File Explorer? In the Home title, if I go to the 'New' section & click on 'New Folder' & type in the website address, that won't open at the desired site. I can open a website & right click & select 'Add to Favourites' ok, but that goes in the list of 'Favourites' on a website.
I made my own windows replacement shell, but im having trouble finding out where to replace it at , in windows xp all i had to do was go to regedit find windows explorer and replace it to some thing like this C:myprogramame.exe and then when i restart the computer my name.exe opens instead of windows explorer. How i can do this or even if i can on windows 8, its a lot deference then xp, Iv been an xp user for a long time and just went to windows 8 so im not fmiller with 8 yet.
Is there a app or a website or something that can send large files?
So I have about a dozen files that I want to send to a friend in another state. Ranging from about 100 MB to 5 GB. The total of all the files together is roughly 26 GB. One Drive won't let me upload anything over 4 GB. Plus it takes forever.
What I can use to send all these files?
I was looking into this. I don't know how good it is though: Firedrive | Free Cloud Storage for Everyone
use Chrome as my main browser and I've recently downloaded Firefox. But sometime today i have realized that I do not have IE11 (I have Windows 8.1) installed. Perhaps I uninstalled it or something has happened. I want to know how to install back another IE11. I have check microsoft's Website:
I then was looking through my Program Files I found that my IE folder was still there. There was something called iexplore.exe (as seen in my screenshot) [URL].... and I want to know if that app will install my IE back? Even thoug it is not critical, I would still like to know how to get it back.
I cannot paste the TSG SysInfo! When I open Internet Explorer
"This page cannot be displayed" or "Website doesn't appear to be valid" appears.
I also have problems with "LAN" settings. When using Google and going to a webpage I receive a message that No proxy server available or page cannot be displayed. I have changed the settings in Google settings and Internet Explorer but this message keeps returning. What can I do other than keep changing the settings?
Why has my Internet Explorer, (msn.com) app on the Start screen decided to start opening on the Desktop. I did have an IE in my taskbar for opening it on the desktop. I ' Unpinned' the one on the Taskbar but it doesn't make any difference, it still opens on the Desktop. It has to have a simple answer! In fact I've just noticed that 'Wordpad' & 'Notepad' are acting the same way!
I'll be in desktop mode in Windows 8 using Chrome or Internet Explorer and will swipe the touchpad of my Sony laptop sometimes and the computer will switch to the Metro verion of IE... I don't understand what I'm doing that is causing that. Is there some touchpad movement that causes apps to switch or that causes the computer to turn on the Metro version of Internet Explorer? Is there any way to turn it off? I haven't been able to reproduce it when I want to, it just sort of happens on its own.
I have recently purchased a new laptop with windows 8.When I go to internet explorer and open a website, I am often seeing a small UFO flying across the screen. It makes a sound similar to the old space invaders arcade game. Has my laptop been hacked and can I stop this? It does not occur one only one particular website. It can occur at any time. Can I stop this. I have never seen this before on previous pc's.
When I tried to open Internet Explorer I got this error? I scanned my PC with Malwarebytes, Hitmanpro & Avast & did not get any virus/malware detection & also did sfc/scannow but, nothing corrupted was found....earlier today,I uninstalled a media player & fixed system errors with Advanced System Care (been using it for a long time & never had any problems like these with any RTM Windows)....... I don't really use internet explorer.......
About two weeks ago I began to notice strange behavior on my PC which made me think it may be a virus. Some examples:
1. When I'm online a message window frequently appears stating "internet explorer has stopped working"
2. Some websites do not display adverts on the page. I've attached a screenshot from youtube to illustrate what I'm referring to.
3. Some webpages will not load. I keep seeing "webpage under maintenance at this time". This is typical for websites at certain times but to see it every time I try to access is suspicious.
4. I use Hotmail and typically the first time I start it up in the day I notice that the first email I open causes the entire page to go blank as if it erases everything on it, it then reopens with all of my emails listed and finally the email I began to read will reopen. This only happens after I boot my system and open the first email. This will not happen on any other computer.
5. I seem to be having issues installing certain programs. They won't install citing various reasons such as outdated files, incompatible etc. These were all working flawlessly prior to reformatting my system.
6. I'm unable to post messages even though I'm logged in. When I type a message I see the timer cycling but it never posts my messages, it's as if it's stuck in a loop or frozen.
Having felt that a system reformat was in order I did just that not more than a week ago. Everything was reinstalled and updated. Once all the Windows 8 files were installed I began to notice the exact same problems surfacing immediately. I'm currently using Win 8 with IE 10. 16 GB RAM, 64 bit OS. The computer itself is an HP and a year old.
I am used to using the mail icon on internet explorer to access my email. I just bought a new laptop with windows 8 on it. Is there a way to have my Suddenlink email service linked to the mail button on windows 8. When I click on it I get a message that says Could not perform this operation because the default mail client is not properly installed. If this is not possible what is the easiest way to access my email from Suddenlink?
So basically, IE11, independent of what the settings for Windows 8.1 is, will ALWAYS have autocorrect on and there's no easy way to disable it. I actually even encountered an official bug report were an MS employee closed it stating that "this is by design for now".
Without further ado, spell-checking is controlled by C:WindowsSystem32MsSpellCheckingFacility.dll. You'll want to rename this to something, say MsSpellCheckingFacility(2).dll, to disable this.
For those not technically inclined, note that this is a system file and it may cause some problems. Specifically, if you want Windows 8 to spell check for you but not IE11. You'll also need to take ownership of said file if you want to rename it. See Take Ownership of a File, Folder, Drive, or Registry Key in Windows 8.
I want to re-install Internet Explorer into my Win 8 pro. I am using a Toshiba Laptop Satellite. I have tried to download and install other version of Win 8 pro, but I receive an error message saying that Internet Explorer is already installed in my system. However, I have tried searching for it, and I can't find it anywhere.
Where is Internet Explorer installed in my Win 8 Pro edition, if I have deleted all of it from my OS?
Also, how to re-install Internet Explorer so that I can use it again.
I have tried to set it as a default browser, but this method does not work.
Internet Explorer 11 will only open if I right click and then select Run As Administrator. If I don't do this, the window opens, then closes straight away without doing anything. Links in Incredimail will not open in it either . Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox work fine (and with the Incredimail links). I have not added any programs recently. I have tried a clean boot, I have disabled all the add ons, I have checked/unchecked Enable Enhanced Protected Mode, I have made Google Chrome the default browser, then changed back to IE11, I have run Malwarebytes Anti Malware, Super Anti Spyware, Windows Defender and CCleaner, checked for Windows updates...all to no avail. Tried a system restore as well, but no joy.
