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.

Maintenance :: Can't See All Startup Apps

Nov 29, 2013

I can't disable startup applications because I can't find them in the startup list.

Yes I know they are not anymore in msconfig.exe but instead in taskmanager-> startup. But they are not there.

I tried with cccleaner but also I can't see all startup apps.

So where I can find all startup apps list and disable them?

No UEFI Tile And No Option / Function Key For BIOS At Startup

Aug 6, 2013

I am trying to boot from USB in order to start using Ubuntu but my problem is that when I go to the advanced settings - troubleshoot - there is no UEFI Firmware Settings, which, from what I have gathered is necessary to be able to boot Ubuntu from my USB flash drive. So far the solution that most people have is that there is no UEFI on that particular computer/type of windows 8, and on the startup screen to press f2, f11, esc, etc but there is no indicator as to what key is is on the ACER splash screen, similar to this. scn101.jpg

Therefor, I cannot get into BIOS?

Windows 8 - On Startup Provide Option To Choose Starting Desktop?

I have been on Win 8 Consumer Pre and Release Pre... I love the 2 menus and love the reach across productivity/business and basic consumer with an apps loaded menu. BUT! How about giving us the option on what we want to load up at the start instead of needing a desktop tile on the menu.

Apps / Software :: Windows 8.1 Apps Won't Start - Tile Option Shows Status Nicely

Oct 28, 2013

I have a Windows 8.1 and a problem with my apps. When I try to open weather, finance and other apps, They show their start-up screen and in a couple of seconds they're gone - I am brought to my metro screen... Tried to reinstall the apps, but hadn't got any luck...

But wait, it get interesting: Even though the weather app crashes, I have a live tile option on for that app, and it shows me weather nicely.

Here are some of the errors from Event viewer:

Maintenance :: New Window Selection Is Always Wrong Size / Type

Feb 3, 2014

No matter how many times I go to 'View' settings, every time I choose a new window (i.e. opening a folder) I am always met with a small-format window rather than a full-screen, full-size one. I also am met with random lists instead of 'medium-sized icons', which I have opted for and chosen as default in 'view'. Have I missed a colossally simple tick in a box?

Apps / Software :: Run A Program In A Sizeable Window?

Aug 12, 2014

I have some old XP graphics software that I need to run every few days. The problem is that it automatically goes full screen at start up and here is no way to reduce it.

When the software was written 4:3 monitors were all there was, so going full screen was fine. But, now with a 16:9 monitor it stretches everything and makes stuff very difficult to make sense of.

I am looking for something that will run the XP stuff in it's own work space so I can adjust the size of that window and in return, adjust the graphics size and shape back to 4:3.

I tried using Virtual-PCs like VMWare Player and VirtualBox but they both seem overkill and made the software run very slow as I had to use my old copy of win98 as the Guest OS. I can't afford to buy a copy of XP or win7 to use as a Guest.

Maintenance :: No Power Option In Windows 8

Jan 23, 2013

I recently upgraded to Windows 8 (64-bit) and noticed I don't have power options available. I own an HP Pavilion DV7, usually when I leave the laptop to do something over night, I go into "Choose what closing the lid does" and I get the error saying my power plan info is not available. Whenever I try to create a powerplan it tells me the same thing, but when I hit next, it tells me it can't find the file specified. I have no power options at the moment. I tried resetting to defaults using cmd, rebooted, and the only power option I had (Razer Gamebooster) was gone, and had nothing after.

Apps / Software :: How To Run Metro App In A Window - Not Full Screen

May 8, 2014

I'm playing with this free Siri like virtual assistant for Windows PC called SpeakToIt. Speaktoit - Your Personal Assistant

Unfortunatly it's a cruddy Metro UI version and not a real desktop application. I had to use a tile manager tool called OblyTile v0.9.8 to be able to make a desktop shortcut because I don't a truck with 8.1 That tool is here btw: [APP] OblyTile - Tile Creator for all programs. - xda-developers

Now I want this app to run in a window instead of fullscreen. An app like this.. i don't get it.. why leave it full screen when you have to multitask? I'd like to run this in a custom sized window that I can tell to always stay on top of other apps.

Is there a way to do this?

Apps / Software :: Windows 8.1 - All Of Office 365 Apps Failing On Startup

Jan 28, 2014

I am having issues with Office 365... and frankly I would never sign up for a subscription service, but I got a great deal since I am a student on a multi-year subscription. I don't think my issue is subscription related, but is related to the office products.

I am running Windows 8.1 with all of the high priority updates installed, on my Acer Aspire desktop system with a I3 processor, maxed out memory, an SSD for OS/programs, and the original HDD for most data. The system came with Windows 7, and was upgraded to 8 shortly after I bought it, then 8.1 when it became available. I believe that the Windows 8 was loaded from DVD I burned as part of installing the SSD, and was a clean install. I mention this all in case there is some potential unedrlying issue based on the upgrade path.

I am running Avast (paid version) which runs clean when I scan.

The issue is that every office program I have tried fails almost immediately, when I either open a document, or if I select a document in Windows Explorer.

I have uninstalled Office completely then reinstalled.

Then I uninstalled, removed application's directory, cleaned a couple of registry keys manually, then reinstalled.

I have only installed one app that I can recall since the last time the office products worked for me, and that is Quicken Willmaker 2014. I have printed my will, so I will be uninstalling to see if it matters. Since it worked, I don't recall any Office related updates being downloaded.

Whether or not that program removal solves the issue, I plan to download and try CCleaner...

One other possible issue. It has always been flaky for me, but my IE 11 seems even more finicky than usual... This might be unrelated, or in my head, but I thought I would mention it in case it is relevant. I have not noticed any issues with other applications or functions.

Anything obvious that I am missing or that I should add to my to-do list?

Apps / Software :: Windows 8 Metro Apps Auto Startup?

May 23, 2014

i'm running Windows 8 Home Premium.I'd like to increase my startup speeds, I already disabled as much as I can in Task Manager, msconfig, etc.In the Task Scheduler, it shows Metro Apps are taking CPU time at startup though. After much searching on the topic, I find very little about how to disable the Metro Apps from starting up. The main one I want to disable is "Mail, Calendar, People, and Messaging". I do not want to uninstall them, I just do not want them to do anything until I open them. It takes over 2 minutes of CPU time at startup for that one Metro App to fully load, and most of the time I never use it.

I have tried going into the Permissions of the App, and I disabled all of its Permissions to run in background of lock screen and everything. Still, it loads in Task Manager and takes CPU time.

Apps / Software :: Win 8 CMD Window Instantly Closes - Can't Read Results

Mar 23, 2014

I am trying to run CoreInfo.exe to see if my processor supports Hyper-V before paying msoft for Windows 8-pro, but Windows 8.0 slams the CMD window shut instantly.

I tried all suggestions but still it flashes open then closed.

Failed: Elevated command prompt
Failed: CMD [enter] coreinfo.exe -v
Failed: Set Run as Administrator
Failed: Set Compatibility to 7, XP, Vista
Failed: CMD /K CoreInfo
Failed: CMD /K Core info > core.txt = Redirect output to a text file

It seems like Coreinfo is appending an "Exit" to the command line command string. About right for the inept msoft programmers.

How to stop this long enough to read the output?

Apps / Software :: PDFs Open In Half Window Using Reader App?

May 2, 2014

When I open a .pdf it uses the Reader app. I have no problem with that except when I am on a website it opens the pdf in a new half window. Meaning the original site and the .pdf each are in their own side by side window. Yes I can drag it to full but everything I read said it should open full. Or at least that's how I would like it.

I have not found any settings to make it always open full. I should say that if I just open the Reader app on its own it does open full screen.

Apps / Software :: Some Apps Run When Included In Startup Folder And Some Don't?

Oct 16, 2013

I'm running Win 8. On my brand new computer (Asus X 550BL) I've included several apps in my startup folder. Some of them run at system start and some don't.

My Firefox starts from startup ok. A batch file used to run my WAMP server works ok as well.

But my attempt to startup WinAmp fails to start. Manually clicking my WinAmp desktop shortcut works fine, but it won't 'auto' startup when that same shortcut is included the startup folder.

This all worked fine in Win 7.

All the startup folder items are set to run as a admin.

Maintenance :: Windows 8.1 Won't Retain Changes To Power Option Settings

Sep 15, 2014

I've been trying to change my power options. I go into Power Saver, "change plan settings," and try to change the "On battery" setting from "Put the computer to sleep: 3 minutes" to "Put the computer to sleep: Never." (I want to make this change because I have a Dell XPS, and it can have difficulties waking up from sleep.)

I've made this change a number of times, but after a while my computer simply reverts back to the 3 minute setting on its own. So, I leave the machine alone for a few minutes, I come back, and it's asleep...even though I thought I had changed the setting to 30 minutes. And in fact, I *had* changed the setting to 30 minutes; the computer is somehow reverting to 3 minutes on its own.

Maintenance :: How To Add Option To Delete On Reboot When Right Click A File

Feb 20, 2013

I found a registry trick that is supposed to add an option to "delete on reboot" when you right click a file. To allow you to schedule files to be deleted when the computer restarts (incase they are currently in use and cant be). The registry edit looks like this:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT*shellDelete on rebootcommand]@="CMD /E:OFF /C REG ADD HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentversionRunOnce /v "Del %1 OnNextReboot" /d ^"cmd.exe /c DEL /F /Q "%1"" /f""


A: how to edit the registry to make this trick work in windows 8 too.or if not possible
B: how to remove the registry edit and take away the broken "delete on reboot option"

Maintenance :: Power Saver Settings Option Windows 8?

Aug 30, 2013

Use of the Power Saver Setting in Windows 8 lowers my pc temperature (at idle) by at least 6 degrees. Using this setting, my pc now idles at 27 degrees C. When I use High Performance, my idle temp is usually at least 33 degrees, or more. For those who have problems with their pc's running warm, this is just one of the things I've found which works for temperature lowering. My biggest impact on lowering temp was air cleaning the pc case interior - getting all the fuzzy balls out...... At one point, my idle temp was in the 50 to 60 degree range and I figured my disk was failing. After checking for a possible problem, I found much of the problem was my own maintenance procedure failure. So, if your pc seems to be running rather high, look around for the simple solutions - clean pc, use power settings, etc.
