Windows 8 - Right Side Toolbar Displaying When Move Cursor In Middle Of Screen

Jul 19, 2013

I just purchased a laptop with Windows 8 installed on it. I have one problem. I know if you hit one of the corners of the screen the right toolbar becomes activated and is displayed. My problem is that it tends to be displayed when I move the cursor in the middle of the screen. When it is displayed I have to deactivate it in order to continue what I was doing. I do not mind the toolbar if it is not so sensitive.

I've read quite a few posts concerning the charm bar (read: disabling it). These posts all seem to focus around the touchpad settings.

However, what I want is to make sure the charm bar doesn't appear when I'm (right edge) swiping my touch screen.

Acer Iconia W510 PC Tablet / Windows 8 - Blue Screen Appearing For No Reason?

Mar 6, 2014

I have an Acer Iconia W510 PC Tablet and I am talking about this error right here. [URL] ....

Okay, so this started appearing and I got a little worried. Each time it happens, I go through a restart and am just fine. So, I started to think about why it appeared. Then it happened more often. I'd say it pops up for no apparent reason every couple days, sometimes more frequent.

Every day, I do the following:

- Run Disk Cleanup
- Run Defrag
- Do a Manual Full System Scan with Norton Antivirus

I do all of these things and try to never download shady files, but it happens all the time. Sometimes it will be when I'm talking to someone on Skype (Text, not Video), or in an app like One Note or OK Cupid Touch.

It happens so frequently that I feel like there is something I'm missing.

ASUS Laptop Running 8 / Dell Monitor - Taskbar Shortcuts Appearing On Wrong Screen

Jan 9, 2014

Strange problem I am having with my windows 8.

I have an ASUS laptop running 8.0 which I am running with a second screen (dell monitor) connected via VGA. I have it set so the external monitor is the primary screen and the laptop is the secondary screen. It is set for a taskbar on each display, with the primary taskbar containing the shortcuts on the monitor, so when I click them they open there. It's been working fine for months.

So I switched it on today and my taskbar shortcuts have jumped to the taskbar on the second (laptop) screen, however my external display is still set as the primary and still has my desktop icons, trashcan etc but a blank taskbar (like the one that used to be on the secondary display)! When I click the shortcuts which are now on the taskbar of the laptop screen they open on the monitor. (ie the wrong screen) I disconnected the monitor, turned off the extended desktop and set it to just use the laptop screen. All my desktop icons moved to the laptop screen but the taskbar shortcuts vanished and I was left with a blank taskbar. If I plug the monitor in again and extend the desktop they reappear, but on the wrong screen. Even if I reboot without the external screen connected I get no shortcuts until I plug in the monitor and set it to extend the desktop. I have checked all the taskbar settings and they are all correct.

How To Stop Windows 8.1 From Popping Out Start Screen

Jul 28, 2014

My win 8.1 pops out the Start menu bar (dunno what it's officially called but it is a vertical bar with Search, Share, Start, Device, and Setting) when I scroll the right edge of my touchpad (Dell inspiron), and if I tap on the mouse it flips right to the Start screen. I see Microsoft is really doing everything they can to get the users to the Start screen. But this is really annoying because I have no business in the Start screen, unfortunately. i never go there and never will.

How can I stop the windows from doing this?

I then restarted my laptop and now even my log in screen is symbols and when I get to the desktop my screen just keeps flashing and I can't click on anything. It just keeps flashing and loading nothing. I can't do anything on it. I didn't install anything the last time it was on either and I'm the only person who uses the laptop.

Print Screen Button Printing To Printer - How To Stop

May 29, 2014

I'm working at an office where when you hit the Print Screen button, it causes a printout in addition to the normal copy to clipboard. I just want to copy to clipboard without wasting toner and paper. It can't be a program on the computer as it's clean with just Windows 8.1

It actually happens on all the machines (whether Windows 7, 8, or 8.1). Is it a program installed on the server? Is it a setting in Windows? How do I stop this behavior?

Toolbar Is Taking Over Internet?

Jan 27, 2013

Yesterday I had to download WinRAR to be able to open up some files and during the setup it only asked me once if I wanted to download a toolbar. I said no... but after I closed the setup and opened Internet Explorer, this "Internet Search" tool bar is here and I can't remove it! It's annoying because I can't click a link that opens up a new tab but instead of going to the link it goes to this "Internet Search".... I tried removing it from my Add-Ons but that didn't seem to work either.

Security :: How To Remove AVG Toolbar And Search

Apr 27, 2014

I hardly ever turn off my computer, I just put it to sleep. But once a week I turn it off and I did last night. When I turned it on this a.m. My Internet Explorer had AVG secure toolbar and search. I do not want it, I did not ask for it and I cannot remove it.

There should be a law against people putting stuff on your computer that you can't remove. I called Microsoft and they told me I had to pay to get rid of it. I will not, nor can I pay. I'm on Social Security. This is BS.

How to get rid of it. And where did my Microsoft Security Essentials go? Now it's missing from my computer

Faded Address Toolbar Type?

Dec 12, 2013

I have searched all the keywords I can think of & I can't seem to find this problem addressed anywhere. The type on my address toolbar in the taskbar is very faded. Almost like it's grayed out, but not quite. I had it do this when I first installed Win 8.1, messed with some settings, but none that seemed to make any sense & it went away. Now it's back & I haven't done any setting changes!

IE11 - How To Disable Yahoo Toolbar

Aug 18, 2014

I accidently added the "Yahoo Toolbar" to my MIE-11.

I followed the standard instructions for removal.

I went to "Tools" then "Manage Add Ons".

The list of Add Ons appeared. When I click any other Add On in the list the "disable" button lights up.

When I click on "Yahoo Toolbar" the "disable" button does not light up so I am unable to get rid of the toolbar.

While on MIE11, I tried clicking on the "X" at the left side of the Yahoo Toolbar. Two choices appear :

(1) Hide Yahoo Toolbar temporarily
(2) Disable Yahoo Toolbar permanently.

I can Hide the toolbar but when I click on the option to permanently disable the toolbar I get a message that says "This action is restricted. Contact your system administrator".

Went to control panel uninstall software , couldn't find Yahoo Toolbar on the list !!!!

Creating Usable Program Toolbar WITH Sub Menus

Nov 22, 2013

Although I don't really miss the Classical start Menu any more It's quite useful to have a quick popup of some programs you use from time to time that don't always warrant being either pinned to the desktop or the taskbar also with SUB MENUS where appropriate -- All the tools like WIN-X editor that I've seen don't allow sub menuing or need fixed location toolbars or folders so here's an EASY way to do it - although it's manual so perhaps knowlegable people with some programming skills who know some scripting could easily automate the process.

An Easy way to do this actually exists in WINDOWS itself by the use of a bit of trickery and Custom toolbars -- you don't NEED any Registry hacks etc. Also you can save your created toolbar so you don't need to re-create it or go through the whole process again if you re-install Windows again either.

Taskbar - Pin or Unpin a Folder - Windows 7 Forums Toolbars - How to Use in Windows 7 and Vista - Windows 7 Forums

1) Create a Folder anywhere on your system say on Vol D: and call it My Progs.

2) Create a Custom toolbar (right mouse click on bottom taskbar==>toolbars==>new toolbar

3) Select the folder location to the one you've made D:My Progs.

Now the trick is to POPULATE this folder correctly.

For Items that don't have any sub menus - for example on my system I'll take Winamp.You need to find the FILE LOCATION - easy way to do this is to search in the applications and then RIGHT MOUSE CLICK on the .exe file and then SEND TO DESKTOP (create Short cut).

Now on the DESKTOP RIGHT MOUSE CLICK on the icon and choose COPY.

Go to your folder D:My Progs, chose Paste Short cut. Then delete the desktop icon if you don't want it on your desktop.

Now if you want SUB levels - create a Folder in the My Progs folder and then simply copy the procedure above.

You can do this for as many levels as you want.

For the TOP level items say Office Create a Folder Microsoft Office. As an example I've also added one Classic Games.

If the link is ALREADY a short cut then just past direct into the My Prog folder - you don't need to create a short cut first.

Finally re-arrange it so it appears on the screen at the most convenient place for you.

"Seemples" -- Bye Bye Startisback or any of those 3rd party apps -- I think my method is far more flexible and you can have ANY number of toolbars too.

I've shown two screen shots here with a small test toolbar - Office and Classic Games have lower levels and the other one is the example My Dir containing ONLY short cuts and folders.

Apps / Software :: Classic Shell Explorer Toolbar?

Apr 16, 2014

The loss of the Classic Shell toolbar in Windows Explorer is still puzzling me.

I've been through all the Classic Shell options (I think!) and messed around with Windows Explorer, but after installing 8.1 the toolbar seems to have disappeared.

I used to have all the View buttons pinned to the bar and I'm really missing it. I know they can be put in the Quick Access Bar, but it's not as usable/fast as the Classic Shell version (the change as hovering I also find very annoying).

EDIT: Just realise I hadn't checked the version I was using. It's 4.0.4 and re-checking the developers site I've now realised that they're up to 4.0.6 ------ Could this be the issue?

I seem to remember that 4.0.6 was not yet stable, or have I dreamt that - I think I probably have

How To Manually Resize Icons Sizes In Quick Launch Toolbar

Sep 15, 2014

What I am asking for is a request to manually size the icons in the QuickLaunch toolbar. I do not want a suggestion that states an alternative way for viewing my icons (for example, pinning programs or what-not).

I am asking to see if there is a registry tweak that manually sets the size of the icons in the QuickLaunch toolbar (refer to the image). They are a bit small, and want to slightly increase their sizes.
