Multiple Sites Opened At Same Time Stacked In Browser On Taskbar

Nov 30, 2013

I have multiple sites open at the same time and it's stacked one a top another in my browser on the taskbar. Is there a way to move these sites around to put it in a different order?

Upgraded To 8.1 - Windows Apps Minimizing To Taskbar When Opened

Jun 8, 2014

I notice that starting when I upgraded from Windows 8 to 8.1, if I open a Windows App (such as the Store), the app will IMMEDIATELY minimize to the taskbar. This does not happen with applications such as IE, but it happens with BOTH Windows and non-Windows apps. This was not happening before the upgrade. I have run Windows Update but it still happens.

8.1 - Number Of Opened Windows (Combine When Taskbar Is Full)

Jul 7, 2014

I used to have Vista, when I had multiple windows open in an application (and they were combined in the taskbar) the number of windows used to be displayed next to the icon. Now I have Windows 8.1, this feature seems to have disappeared and the only way I can see how many windows are open is to manually count them one-by-one. The only difference when the application combines the windows is that is looks to have 3 windows combined on the right hand side of the application in the taskbar.

Is there any way to get this number back? I think this feature may have been removed from 8.1, but if it has is there a workaround?

Open Browser And Programs Frozen To Taskbar In Windows 8

Jan 24, 2014

My husband has an HP Envy desktop running Windows 8 with a new HP 23tm Touch Screen Monitor. For the last couple of weeks, sometimes when he lowers an open browser to the task bar, he can no longer bring it back up. It show the small preview and it is still open but it won't go enlarge. Right click, left click, close then open, it's just done. At first restarting the computer worked. He found that when it happens he can switch to a different browser and that will work. When he has a browser open on the desktop and tries to open another program it opens but stays frozen to the taskbar. Lower the browser and it still wont enlarge. This seems to happen when it goes into screen save mode. We ran all checks (drivers, disk, virus) and ran all updates.

Browsers/Mail :: 8.1 - Any Time Upload File Browser Crashes Within Seconds?

Oct 28, 2013

New Windows 8.1 laptop. Any time I upload a file in a browser it crashes within seconds. It doesn't matter if I use Opera, Chrome or Firefox.

Also, some applications crash directly after launching them such as SmartFTP, SnagIt Editor and Jing crashes when I save a file. Also, when opening This PC in a file upload dialog sometimes it will keep loading for hours.

I've tried to get more information by clicking Debug after a crash and here are some of the errors I've noticed:

Code: Unhandled exception at 0x66AAF19F (apphelp.dll) in opera.exe: 0xC0000005: Access violation writing location 0x0C9E0DA8.Unhandled exception at 0x7720A604 (msvcrt.dll) in Jing.exe: 0xC00000FD: Stack overflow (parameters: 0x00000001, 0x0F6E2FFC).

I've already performed "sfc /scannow" without any issues, reinstalled all software that has these issues , installed all available Windows updates and generally tried applying different settings but nothing seems to work..

Display Time On Multiple Monitors?

May 6, 2014

I have two monitors. Some of my programs can take the whole screen, covering up everything including the task bar. In W7, I just used the MS clock gadget which I moved to the second screen so I could always see the time. Now in Windows 8.1 Update, I can see all the apps that I've pined to the active task bar, but I don't see the system tray with the time to the right. Doesn't have to be the task bar, of course -- could be a floating clock in the upper right or left or anywhere you like.

No Option To Extend Taskbar On Multiple Displays

Jan 25, 2014

I am trying to extend the taskbar to my 2nd monitor on Windows 8.1

I tried to use the tutorial on this site but I don't have any of those options. This is what it looks like for me:

Is there any other way?

PS - If it makes a difference: Primary computer resolution: 3200 x 1800 2nd monitor: 1920 x 1200

Multiple Taskbar Pinned Programs Query

Nov 15, 2013

Windows 8.1 menus - but here goes:- I'm trying to set up my multiple monitors in 8.1.

I would like to be able to have different programs pinned to each monitor, i.e. display 1's taskbar would have calculator, chrome, and utorrent pinned to it, and then display 2's taskbar would have download folder, wow, xbmc, etc pinned to it.

I cant seem to have individual programs pinned to each display - its either have all of the same pinned programs on both taskbar, or none on the extended taskbar.

Multiple Taskbar On Same Screen Using Dual Screens

Sep 15, 2014

Some weeks ago, I noticed an odd problem with my taskbar.

While using my laptop at home, I use an exterior monitor to extend my desktop, and usually set the monitor as my primary. Occasionally, I would notice that my open apps would appear to be greyed-out (and therefore un-clickable) on my secondary screen. All the pinned apps would be full colour, but would only respond to clicking as if I was starting a new version of the app (e.g. a new browser window rather than switching to the existing one).

It appears as though a second "ghost" taskbar was over top the main one, and only on one screen. This ghost taskbar would block any attempt to click on the taskbar underneath. Unlocking the taskbar and moving it, for example, to the side, would confirm this as the ghost taskbar would drag and snap to the edge, leaving the normal taskbar at the bottom of the (same) screen.

The ghost taskbar would disappear (or perhaps merely move behind the main taskbar) if the taskbar is swapped with the primary screen (causing the tray to move over).

A reload of Windows Explorer via Task Manager seems to be a temporary fix, as is restarting the computer. However, this issue may appear multiple times per session, and within a short time of any reload/restart. This also does not seem to occur when using only the laptop screen.

I do not run any desktop customization software, and have triple-checked for any Windows, Microsoft, or driver updates. I am moderately competent in doing repairs to the computer so long as I have reasonably detailed instructions on how to do the fix.

Removed Date And Time From Taskbar?

Feb 25, 2013

Either way, the other day I accidentally removed the date and time from the bottom right hand corner of the Windows 8 taskbar. I did this when i was trying to set the time from the Windows defaulted US Pacific Time to US Eastern Standard Time. How to get it back on the taskbar. Why my Java location on my computer is saying that it is "corrupted". I think it is related to Windows 8 upgrade.

How To Change Desktop Taskbar Time To Datetime

Sep 8, 2013

(At least the Recycle Bin can be removed without a registry edit hack. These have always been my top 2 peeves of Windows.)

From the desktop view I simply want to look down and to the right to see the "Sunday, September 8, 2013 - 2:17PM" I see now ... but have to move my mouse over there and hover over it first. Why would I want to have to do that?

It wasn't possible in XP (that I know of) not without having to expand your taskbar to twice the width. (And let's face it, there is nothing quite as intimidating as a big huge fat thick taskbar.)

Win 8.1 - Spinning Wheel Keeps On Turning On Certain Sites

Network / Sharing :: Can't Access Certain Sites Until Reboot - TCP / IP

Apr 16, 2014

So yesterday I upgraded from a slow, ancient T1 to Verizon's "Home Fusion" 4G LTE broadband. It's amazing how fast it is, but I seem to have a problem where occasionally I can't connect to certain sites.

For example, I'll be surfing Facebook and all of a sudden it'll just stop connecting and I can't do anything. BUT if I jump over to my laptop (running Windows 7) or my iPad, both of which are on the same network, it works fine.

If I then reboot the Windows 8.1 PC, all of a sudden I can access Facebook again, for awhile, until it craps out again at some point and I need to reboot again. It's not just FB either. This happens with a handful of other random sites as well, but when it does I can still access 99.9% of other sites just fine.

One thing I've noticed is that whenever I can't load a site, it seems like it's almost always waiting for some type of CDN-based content to load. Often if I hit the stop button in the browser the page then shows up immediately.

Like when I first tried loading this site, it just sat there forever and in the lower left corner of the browser it said "Waiting for" then after awhile I just hit X and then eightforums displayed just fine...

Browser doesn't matter. I've tried them all. I've tried flushing DNS, resetting winsock, etc. and nothing works except rebooting. Another odd thing I noticed while messing around is that I don't seem to have a HOSTS file in the normal location. I can't find it anywhere??

At first I thought this new verizon router just has flaky wifi so I switched to a direct connect via ethernet hoping that would solve the problem, but nope. It's definitely not that because like I said when it happens I can jump on my laptop connected to the same network via wifi and I can connect to FB just fine on that machine.

Both machines are running the same firewall/antivirus setup, and this Windows 8.1 machine is free from all malware, rootkits, etc.

Yesterday I tried testing different DNS servers (Google, OpenDNS etc) but that didn't work. But it did lead to something else weird - today if I try to do the same by opening up the TCP/IPv4 properties for my ethernet adaptor I get the following error message:

"In order to configure TCP/IP, you must install and enable a network adaptor card."

I just tried re-installing the latest drivers for the ethernet adaptor but that made no difference (it's an onboard Intel I217-LM). I've also tried different/new ethernet cables just for kicks.

I'm starting to wonder if the fact that my connections look like a mobile phone while my browser headers/useragent etc. identifies them as coming from a desktop machine is confusing some sites/CDNs, etc.?? Although that means all users of Verizon's Home Fusion service would have this problem and that doesn't seem to be the case.

I guess the weirdest thing of all is that if I can't connect to a site like say FB, if I just reboot then I can connect to FB again for awhile, until it decides to crap out again.

All Sound Gone From Internet Sites On Windows 8 Computer

Oct 8, 2013

Yesterday I plugged in a headphone/microphone to use Dragon, a voice recognition software. It may be just a coincidence, but since then I haven't been able to hear any sound off the internet. I have a High definition audio device 5.1 surround speaker system that still plays mp3's, and movie DVD's, just fine through my speakers and/or my headphones. If I make a mistake in typing, I hear the error bell or computer sound through my speakers. However, if I go to youtube or some news outlet, or anything online, I hear no sound.

I've gone to my device manager and selected each of the sound devices and set them as the default device, but it doesn't work. I check the properties on each of the devices and get the response that the device is working properly. It is hard to argue with a computer, but I certainly disagree, because I still get no Internet sounds.

I'm running Windows 8. Intel Core i7-3770 CPU 3.40GHz with 32GB RAM. DirectX version 11.

Debugging :: BSOD Multiple Times With Multiple Drivers / Bug Check Settings

Jul 19, 2014

I built a computer recently. Since day one I get BSODs but the drivers, and Bug/Checks listed are never the same.I was thinking it couldn't be a single device or driver so I've:

Replaced the MOBO.
Repair Installed the OS.
Replaced the RAM.

It BSOD'd multiple times between each change.

The only things I've run are IE/FF and Ableton Live 9. Ableton is usually running during the BSOD but it was not the last time.

Browsers/Mail :: Not Keeping Login Details For Different Sites - Win 8.1

Jun 10, 2014

Ever since I upgraded from 7 to 8.1 the laptop has been progressively getting worse at keeping login details fort eh different sites I use regularly (like this one).

It is getting to be very very irritating to have to re enter my login detail when accessing forums Ebay etc etc... Have made sure I have saved cookies for the sites with CCleaner , made sure I have ticked remember this login and the site's remember this password but the problem like I said is getting beyond a joke.

I never had this problem with 7 and along with some of the other little niggles of 8.1 I am seriously thinking of reverting back to 7 although it does run slower.

Debugging :: BSOD From YouTube / Sites With Embedded Ads (New Computer)

Jul 17, 2014

I just put together a computer yesterday, and while most things seem to be working fine, I've been having some problems with YouTube and certain websites that have embedded ads with animation. The computer either freezes up completely or sends me to a BSOD that cites the problem as WHEA_uncorrectable_error. It happens almost every time within a few seconds of the video starting. It also froze once just sitting on the desktop with only a Steam download in the background, but I haven't seen that happen again.

Oddly enough, I've run several games on Steam to see if it would have the same effect, but I haven't run into that problem yet while playing games. Netflix and Hulu also seem to work fine.

Nothing is overclocked. I got drivers for the video card and mobo from the company websites, although I'll admit that I don't know much about that. My report from the diagnostic tool is attached. My build is posted below.

CPU: Intel Core i5 4590
Graphics Card: Radeon R9 280X (Sapphire)
MOBO: Gigabyte GA-H97-D3H
Power Supply: EVGA Supernova NEX750B (750 W)
HD: Seagate Barracuda 1 TB 7200 RPM
SSD: Samsung 840 EVO 250 GB
RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 8 GB
OS: Windows 8.1, 64 Bit

Network / Sharing :: DNS Error Constantly Occurring - Some Sites Work Some Don't

Apr 3, 2014

For the past month i have been getting disconnected from my favourite game guild wars 2, after researching the error code it has been linked back to the DNS error. i have restarted, factory reset the router, restarted windows, formatted windows, disabled and re-enabled the Ethernet Port on my computer but have had no success, sometimes restarting the router fixes the problem, and sometimes it doesn't.

I have changed the ipv4 connections to use the Google server addresses, but this did not fix the problem
I have also used the ipconfig/flushdns command which also does not work

The game client Steam will connect, but Team-speak 3 and other websites will not.

Browsers/Mail :: Chrome Closing After Being Opened

Jan 8, 2014

I mentioned not so long back that the chrome browser was closing after being opened and then getting a report that Chrome did not close properly! So after many weeks of this, I decided to return to firefox, in spite of the so called spyware.

Just now, I opened Firefox to do a Google search for somewhere, and - it shut down. When I reopened it, it opened on the page that had crashed. Google search.

So, it either not just chrome, or its a google thing?

Maintenance :: CPU 100% Drops Below 3% Once Task Manager Opened

Jun 16, 2013

When CPU usage is just high (50% to 60%) and I open Task Manager, it's usually McAfee on access scanner at work because I've just clicked an emoticon or something like that. Other examples are service host -- some long winded process I can't always find in the TM list to get the name right.

But when it's 100% and this has happened consecutively for over half a dozen attempts to find what spikes this, I'm dead serious: CPU usage has dropped immediately to under 3%. Yesterday and today I've "caught" this thing 2 times. CPU usage drops so fast you can't see what spiked it.

There are 2 Google Ads that pop in right about here but don't show up when I edit the post. These do not work, find hundreds of non-existent "errors" so that you'll buy the program and then when you run it you might get less than half a dozen errors fixed. Don't trust these programs, I don't. I have no control over what Google Ads does but I'd call it anything but "Adsense" to be honest.

I had Norton trial as the default AV when I first fired up and set up the laptop but I'm a McAfee person so set this up and removed Norton during the McAfee setup process. So it's not likely this is an infection. I apply all updates as soon as I see them, if I'm working and can't quit at the time an Update notice comes through then it's no more than overnight that these are applied.

File Explorer - Shows Folder Empty When Opened

Jan 18, 2013

Opening a folder in file explorer often shows it empty when I know it isn't! Also if I try to delete the "empty" folder, explorer reports it has found x number of files and is preparing to delete! If I quit that and look in the folder there are the files.

I also have issues with file explorer opening a folder and apparently scanning the contents - a green bar very slowly creeps across regardless of how frequently I've looked in the folder earlier in the day.

I have six drives mostly pretty full with a mixture of thousands of small files and thousands of very large images. Windows 8 file explorer seems to have problems coping.
