Product Key In Control Panel?

Jun 4, 2014

I was looking around in the control panel and I found the system section. It had a part in it that showed my product key. Is this my actual product key for reinstalling or is it an identifier? I do like it that I can find it on OEM PCs but I don't want people looking through my control panel for it.

Setup Installation :: Windows 8 X64 - Two Control Panel Icons In Taskbar

Dec 18, 2012

Since I installed Windows 8 (on top of Vista x64 Ultimate) I have two Control Panel icons in the Taskbar.

If I right click and choose Delete to the one on the left, nothing happens.

If I right click and choose Delete to the one on the right, it deletes, but it reappears after a Reboot.

I only want one icon. How can I achieve this?

Windows 8 Update - Cannot Use Any Icons / Control Panel Reset Not Responding

Apr 22, 2013

I have had no trouble with windows 8 until the most recent update. Now everytime i start up my laptop it will not let me use any icons on the desktop, start menu, bar at the bottom of screen and wont even let me use windows explorer (i.e. I went into control panel to reset things to before the update but it just says not responding). The first thing i realised was windows defender was taking up a lot of space in the disk and was preventing other things from being loaded successfully so i managed to disable it, downloaded AVG and found no viruses.

This laptop came pre-installed with windows 8.

No Control Panel In Apps With Metro UI

Sep 23, 2011

No Control Panel in Apps with Metro UI

When I search Apps either by scrolling or typing in the Apps search box, I do not have a Control Panel.

The tut from Shawn shows one but I sure don't have one.

I have a Control Panel when I select Desktop.

What have I done?

I don't now how long this has been this way because at the very first I switched, via regedit, the default to the Win 7 type of desktop. After getting all programs installed and setting made to my preferences, then I switched to Metro.

Thought I would work thru a couple of the tutorials which is when I discovered no Control Panel App.

Control Panel Items Not Executing?

Jun 6, 2013

I have several control panel items that do not open. I get a message indicating that they are looking for an associated program.

After some research I figured out how to create a shortcut that opens the control panel item (example:firewall.cpl) by using its canonical name, and its GUID. Example I created a shortcut for default items using "C:Windowsexplorer.exe shell:::{17cd9488-1228-4b2f-88ce-4298e93e0966}" as the target.

However, I really would like the control panel to work properly. I don't know how to move the shortcuts I have created for the *.cpl files that no longer work into control panel. Alternatively, I would like to know if there is a way I can automatically "refresh" my system (without having to reinstall Win 8) so the control panel items work properly.

Can't Reduce Brightness Or Use HDMI - Control Panel 8.1

Nov 11, 2013

Since updating my HP Pavillion 64 bit to Windows 8.1, I have been unable to use an HDMI cable or reduce the computer brightness. I figured it would be a simple fix: restore to before the update, and wait for the bugs to be worked out. However, every time I attempt to access the control panel to perform a system restore, the entire OS freezes. Update: I tried to power on my computer just now to no avail. Stayed on the HP loading screen for 30 min.

Computer And Control Panel Blank After A Time

Mar 8, 2013

my PC running Win 8/IE10 . At random times during the day, I lose the Hard Drive/ DVDDrive Icons in the "My Computer" and all icons in Control Panel . On both pages I just get a blank screen with "Empty Folder" message, and a blue "Search Bar" at the top. Also, when the fault occurs, I lose all the Thumbnail Icon pictures of my Photographs, leaving justa white square with the name of the photograph beneath.

If I double click on the white square, the photograph appears normally jn Windows photo viewer.

Rebooting returns the PC to normal for a couple of hours maybe, but eventually the fault will reappear.

I have run Kaspersky AntiVirus, MS Disk and Registry , but all report "No Problems". Tried to run scan now but keep getting 'try as administrator' when I am the administrator ?

Is there a way to make a shortcut to open or go to a specific item in the CP? I'd like to be able to do this with a few of my most-used, such as Color and Appearance, for changing taskbar and windows borders colors. I have a macro program that will do it, just wondered if there were direct links to the various items in the CP.

Add Immersive Control Panel Between Metro Tiles?

Sep 7, 2012

In DP there was possible to run Immersive CP directly from the Metro tiles, by launching tile with the toothed wheel? Is it possible to add the wheel tile again to Metro in RTM?

Here is the picture of the tile: Control.jpg

I of course know, that ImmersiveCP can be launched differently, but I want this for very special purpose. I don't want to loose time by extracting that from DevPrev.

Panel / Desktop View Switching Constantly - No Control

Apr 3, 2014

I have Windows 8.1 on my HP Pavilion Laptop. I have this problem where after starting my PC, logging in and being dropped into the Panel view, I wait for about 10 seconds... and then the PC starts thrashing and constantly flicking between the traditional Desktop and the Panel view without me touching a button / clicking on anything!

The only things I can access on my laptop are:

Task ManagerGoogle Chrome (by clicking on the icon very quickly in Panel View before it flicks back to traditional Desktop)

This problem literally prevents me accessing anything else. As soon as I start opening something in traditional desktop mode, the pc flicks straight back to Panel view and it is lost! Even if I am quick enough to click on an application, it doesn't even load it!

I am almost certain it is some piece of software that I must have picked up along the way. I've been trying to use my Norton antivirus to scan and detect it... but I cannot even open that to scan, due to this very problem.

I even tried using the Trend Micro Home Call service, which I could access through Chrome of course. Unfortunately as soon as I tried downloading it I was told it had failed as there is no access to the internet(!?) very odd indeed.

Apps / Software :: Skype Not Show In Control Panel

Feb 21, 2014

Have Skype on windows surface, however sometimes when I answer the camera doesn't turn on but I can hear voice. I believe it might be might be that I have two different versions on this computer because I can answer one pop-up but still see it ringing. restart tablet and call the person from my windows app and it is fine.

here's the catch---why when I go to my control panel can I not find the program? it shows up on my app screen but clicking all relevant selections on the control panel-it is no where? my past experience says maybe I have two versions on the computer or I need to install and reinstall the program with the latest, but unless I go looking for the actual folder it is non-existant.
