Media File Tag Data Not Appearing In Windows Explorer

Nov 27, 2012

I recently installed Windows 8. I noticed that at some point the media tags stopped displaying in Windows Explorer for media files such as mp3 and m4b. I am talking about such tags as "title" , "bitrate" and "length" for audio files, for example. Previously this data always displayed for the same files.

This affects my collection of Music and Audio books which I am doing some housekeeping with. I can't sort mp3 and m4b them according to the tags that had been set in iTunes or mp3 tagger.

This has always worked previously and the tags have displayed fine.

I am using the "Detailed" viewing mode in Windows Explorer, but it is just empty in the columns where the tag should be, even for files which I know are tagged, and where the tag displayed previously, in Windows Explorer.

Here is what I found :

I ran sfc /scannow, but this did not solve the problem. I tried installing a shell extension called AudioShell135.exe which supposedly fixes problems with this, but it does not work for 64 bit OS. I read that a DLL called shmedia.dll is responsible for this functionality. Apparently some people re-registered this wisuccess when they had this problem. I did that, but it did not work either.

Could this be a regression in Win 8 or can others see the tag data for their mp3 files?

Windows 8 Desktop - Change File Icon

Jan 6, 2013

I quite often place files on my Windows 8 desktop while im working on various stuff and have a problem with icons I cant fix, for example: I have a number of PDF files currently on my desktop and my pdf program is foxit. I DONT WANT TO CHANGE THE PROGRAM ICON, just the icons of the files it makes. I had the same issue on win7 and i know I can change folder view options to "show icons and not thumbnails" but unfortunately that screws up my image icons.

In windows 7, "types" and "nirsoft files type manager" allowed you to change the file type icon from the thumbnail to whatever icon you wanted. These 2 progs plus another I've tried don't work in win 8pro?

Can't Delete WMA Desktop File (Error 0x80070057) With Picture

Sep 12, 2013

I have a Windows 8 64-bit Sony laptop.

I was deleting old unused folders on my Desktop when I ran into this wma file called "Untitled1" that doesn't play.

I remember one point in time it was useable and worked normally, but for some reason it won't now.

I just want this annoying file gone forever and I've been trying to search up the error code it keeps giving me (Error 0x80070057), but no such luck in solving my problem.

I also searched up "How to delete undeletable files" and tried some things out, but none of the ones that seemed closest to my problem worked out...

Here is a picture of the error pop-up window I get when trying to permanently delete the file or move it: [URL]

Deleted Desktop Start Folder File - No Live Tile

Feb 9, 2013

A user provided the OP with a Desktop.ink file, and nothing was said about what to do with the file that was provided. I'm having the same problem, where I deleted the file by accident and now there is no live tile for the desktop anywhere on the start screen, not even in the All Apps category. I can't find it in the Windows Store either. What do I do? Here is a screenshot of the folder that I *think* held the original desktop file.

How To Unzip File And Make BIOS Update Stick For Flashing Desktop

May 26, 2014

I am on my laptop at the moment and am trying to make a BIOS update stick for flashing my main desktop at home that has an Asus P8Z77-V board.

Now I have downloaded and saved both the BIOS utility - renamer and the BIOS version itself and both are zipped files.

I have tried using 7-zip to rename that BIOS file which the manual tells me I have to do but to get it to work when I use the 7-zip it goes to choose an app from the store. Now I have never fully understood zipping and unzipping files to be able to use the application and now this message has got me even more perplexed as to what to do!

I did try this at home on the main machine but I did go round in circles on that (7) machine and until I get the BIOS ready on the stick I cannot flash the BIOS on that main machine.

Taskbar Inconsistently Appearing In ModernUI?

Apr 8, 2014

I just installed all the updates contained in 8.1 update 1. I like the way the taskbar pops up in Modern UI, but it seems inconsistent.

If I use the 'Start button' to switch to the Store, and I keep the mouse on the taskbar, the taskbar stays. If I move off it, it disappears. If I move the mouse back to the bottom of the screen, the majority of the time nothing happens. If I wiggle the mouse around at the bottom of the screen, after a while the taskbar appears. Sometimes, when I move off the taskbar, it doesn't disappear immediately.

How To Prevent Keyboard Shortcuts Panel From Appearing

Mar 27, 2014

Regularly, when using keyboard shortcuts a Keyboard Shortcuts panel appears automatically. I can't find a way to close the panel out.

The only way I can close it is to shut the computer down.

Is there a way to open the panel, manually, if needed, and then close it?

If not, is there a way to prevent the panel from appearing at all?

Edit: The panel is displayed every time I use a keyboard shortcut.

Solved: To make the panel hide, press Ctrl + Shift + Alt + Right-cursor-key.

Taskbar Thumbnail Previews Not Appearing - Tooltip Instead

Apr 30, 2014

Every since I updated my 8.1 to update 1 I have this annoying bug, the taskbar miniatures stop appearing and instead i have this annoying tooltip with whatever program's name I hovered last, that insists in staying above all other windows:

The only way to fix it is rebooting my computer, but it just comes back after a while.

I haven't found any link to any open program, any way I can debug this to find out why this is happening? I'm close to formatting the computer because of this annoyance.

Mouse Cursor Appearing During Some Games Windows 8 X64

Feb 28, 2013

Sometimes when I am playing a game in fullscreen with the 360 controller, the mouse cursor will appear on the screen where I last left it. I have to jiggle the mouse and it will go away, but it comes back periodically. In games where I am using a mouse with a special look during the game, I can see flickers of the regular white windows mouse cursor. At first I thought it was just happening in Steam Big Picture Mode, but it is happening in all games.

Acer Aspire V5 - Sign In Options Button Not Appearing

Jan 14, 2014

My friends were playing around with my old laptop which was an Acer aspire v5 with a core i3 by trying to guess my pin. No matter how many times they tried, it wouldn't lock or anything. I got that laptop replaced because it was malfunctioning. The replacement was practically the same model but with a core i5. Again, a friend tried to guess my pin but after a lot of tries, the pin entry box disappeared and got replaced by a password entry box.

I forgot my password because I rely too much on my pin which is shorter and easier to remember and the "sign-in options" button disappeared so I can't log in with my pin. I also can't log-in using my Microsoft account password which I changed. I'm pretty sure this isn't because of the model change. Oh and another detail is that my old laptop's OS was windows 8 when my friends played with it while my new one's OS is windows 8.1. I have really important files there and it's new so I haven't had time to back-up.
