Mouse Click To Invoke Metro UI?

Sep 4, 2012

Mouse click to invoke Metro UI If you have a mouse with programmable buttons: The Windows Key is 'ctrl-esc' I have a Logitech mouse with programmable buttons. In the Logitech button settings you can program any button to go to the Metro UI:

1.) Go to your mouse settings;
2.) Choose a button;
3.) Select 'Keystroke Assignment;
4.) in the resulting 'Specify Keystroke' - Keystroke window:
5.) Simultaneously press Ctrl and Esc.
6.) Note: In the Logitech example, you cannot use your keyboard key-by-key to enter ctrl+esc. You must simultaneously press the control and escape key in the above window. [Hold down ctrl and esc] Worked for me.

Explanation:Windows 8 dumped me into the old W7 desktop when I exited an application -- even if I started the application in Metro UI. Then I had to go back to keyboard to press Windows key. Now I have a mouse button to get me back to Metro UI. Editorial comment - DWJ: I think Windows 8 should default to the Metro UI upon exit from any application. After many months of objecting to Windows 8, I now like it -- but I do not like the extra key press on the Windows Key [on the keyboard] to get me back to Metro UI -- where I started. If Microsoft wants me to use the Metro UI, then Microsoft should dump me into the Metro UI whenever I exit any app.

Hardware Drivers :: Mouse Double Click Does Not Work In Desktop

Oct 2, 2013

I tried to adjust the double click speed but it has no effect.

Any icon on desktop doesn't open until the third click. Once i am in my computer double clicking works fine, the issue only occurs on desktop.

I suspect it is related to some program but i don't know which. Other domain users on the computer do not suffer from this problem.

I tried disabling lots of things from startup like babylon, ashampoo hdd control, bwmeter, desktop 8gadgets but it didn't work.

I don't know when this problem started to occur.

Earlier i installed mcos lion transformation pack and uninstalled it. It had caused notifications not to come on office 2013.

Mouse Pointer Gets Invisible In Metro Interface?

Nov 20, 2012

I installed Windows 8 in another partition just to learn it and do the move later. I got no big issues but...The next day I noticed I have no mouse pointer in the "metro" interface. If I am in the desktop the pointer shows OK.

I looked carefully at boot/turn off stages and at the beginning the mouse pointer is there but suddenly disappears. The same is when power off. Suddenly appears just before the final stages of the turn off procedure.

I can see the visual signals (mouse over) and click in apps but no pointer at all.

Dell Inspiron Hover-Click And Left-Click Gets Stuck?

Jan 4, 2014

I have a new Dell Inspiron 15r as of this Christmas, running Windows 8. I ran the upgrade to 8.1 but I still have a problem with my cursor wanting to "hover click" on links or browser tabs, as well as being stuck in the down position, when I'm not even pressing on the touchpad left button. I end up selecting an entire region of stuff while moving the cursor across the screen.

I can't figure out what to change or configure in Control Panel, or is it in the Dell Touchpad configuration utility?

In Control Panel/Ease of Access Center/Make Your Mouse Easier To Use I have unchecked "Activate a Window by hovering over it with a mouse." Still happens.

Browsers/Mail :: IE10 Metro App Not Available In Metro Start Screen?

Aug 30, 2013

IE Metro tile is missing from my metro start screen. It's not in the 'all apps' list either. when I go to program default, it is set as the default browser. I went through all the checks in the tutorial on here, but at best, I can only get the desktop IE tile to pin to start. I would rather have the metro version tile on my start.

Win 8.1 Desktop Right Click Takes 15 Seconds?

Oct 17, 2013

I upgraded from Win 8 Pro with Media Center to 8.1 Pro with Media Center. Upgrade went smooth (but what's with going completely thru the install BEFORE asking if you accept the new license?)

But now it takes 15 seconds to open the right click menu on the desktop as opposed to probably less than 1/10 of a second before. All other right clicks seem normal. No significant CPU usage during the wait.

If it matters, I'm pretty damn vanilla but I do have Start8 and ModernMix.

Also if its significant, Catalyst Control Panel won't start (I'll reinstall the latest but it was current less than a week ago).

Also my secondary monitor is set to the correct resolution (1920x1080) but its shrunk with a more than half inch black border around it. I'm hoping the Catalyst/driver reinstall fixes this too.

No Right Click Options In Win 8.1 Start Screen?

May 4, 2014

I have win 8.1 x64 Core installed.The thing is, i want to remove some items from my start screen and right clicking does not bring up any menu (which it used to on my previous win 8.1, this is new installation).

WEe, I deleted some files which were actually looking like shortcuts (had arrow below icons, like shortcuts) in C:Users (and directories in it), thinking that these shortcuts are just useless. And I think this somehow caused the problem. now I want to remove a few thing from my start screen and no option is appearing. Is there any way to manually remove them?

Same thing happens in the "detailed" start screen, the checkmark appears, but no menu to do anything.
