Tablets :: Windows 8.1 Still Shows Deleted Picture?
Nov 29, 2013
(Lenovo Yoga 13.3 - full Windows updates - 8.l install/conversion - full updates again.)
I took a snapshot using the webcam (via the Skype app) and it created a file C:UsersJohnDoePicturesCamera RollThe Lame Picture.png
It's been deleted for days (including the 'Camera Roll' subdirectory it rode in on).
Per recommendations elsewhere online: I've removed all the suspect live-tiles from the Start menu: Photos, Skype, Camera - and rebooted - but no way Jose. little thumbnail is still rotating through the lineup like nobodies business.
All my items in picture library are gone from my hard drive. not in recyle bin i have scanned using recover software and they are all listed when I go to photo app displays photos then says they are not accessible. How this happened folder option is not hidden, I search hard drive for .jpg .mov files and nothing! yet they can be seen by scanning using recover software.
How I can recover files that i now cannot access!!! totally baffled how this happened.
I cannot get the touch keyboard or picture password to come up consistently at logon screen. I had to go to services to make the touch-service work with desktop and logon (it was unchecked). Now, at fresh start-up or restart I can get the keyboard by touch but will not get it again if I log off and log back on. And under no conditions do I get the picture password option although I have a picture set up for it.
I recently deleted a user account, and clicked yes to also delete all associated files...the user was successfully deleted, however, the user's folders/files remain, and cannot be deleted. Is it possible to associate that user's folder with a new user's login? If not, what needs to be done in order to delete the remaining user folder?
I have HP 1000 Notebook PC.(Core i3).i have installed windows 8.problem is that my wifi option in the windows shows OFF.when i move cursor to it it is not highlighted.in fact it seems its not even installed. (cannot be turned on.).
I'm not much of a VM expert. I have a couple of win7 systems running a WinXP VM that I installed manually, in all those cases, the virtual network has always just booted up and worked. Under Windows 8 Pro-RTM, I did a XP VM that I loaded myself (versus an XP mode) and it loads the virtual network adapter but it reports that the cable is unplugged
I'm not clear on what this means. Obviously, it's a VM so there is no cable to plug in. I'm guessing I'm suppose to match that Virtual Nic to the regular (aka Host's) NIC but I'm not see any options to do so.
On the same system I run windows 7 Ult and a XP install and the network loads up on boot.
This is what Windows Explorer and Disk Management show.
Drives G, H, I, and L are completely non-existent. When clicking on them, Windows asks to format them. Properties shows 0 bytes Used space/Free space. I need removing these "drives" from Windows Explorer.
I just recently upgraded to 8.1, and I noticed something minor is missing, or I just can't figure it out.
When I was using Win7, I would occasionally use the URL of a picture to upload it to Facebook, instead of saving it to my computer and uploading it like that. In Win8, there's no more familiar "file select" box, and nowhere to paste the url to the image
(Other than the obvious "save it to your harddrive which I don't want to do.)
I bought dell inspiron 7520 and tried creating the additional partition on the hard drive. After rebooting the laptop started showing blue screen and saying that the file Windowssystem32winload.efi doesn't exist or is corrupt. Error code: 0xc0000225
Since the laptop was sold just with the installed windows but without the CD with windows8, I'm not able to reinstall it.
Currently in the process of locating my "library folders" to my storage drive rather than keeping them on my boot drive. In the process, I made a mistake of somehow syncing my music folder with my pictures folder. Now they open up to the same directory on my storage drive. At the same time, my pictures folder was renamed to Music.
1.) How do I disconnect my original "pictures folder" (which is now renamed to music and is essentially the same folder as my music folder).
It should be as easy as deleting the picture, but it's not... nothing is as easy as it should be in this train wreck. How do you delete an old account picture? I've tried just replacing it, but that turns into a whole puzzle you need to unravel first. If you pick the picture you want to replace, you would think that you would make it the big one of the 3, but you'd be wrong... that would make too much sense. If you hit browse and pick a new picture, the big one moves to the right and the new picture becomes the big one. Eventually you end up with 3 pictures and you get stuck in a sort of Rubic's Cube just trying to get the picture you want. This is some really bad software. Even the most die-hard M$ defenders have to know it, whether they want to admit it or not. So... how do you remove all the old pictures and only have the one you want.

When I try to open up my pictures folder, I can not see any previews of photos and I have to go through an entire folder using the Microsoft Picture viewer to view each and every picture then memorize the photo number in order to attach it to any e-mail or to insert it into my Outlook 2007. Is there an incompatibility issue here ? 2007 vs Windows 8.1 ?? What can I do to rectify the situation ?
OK, it seems like I'm part of the vast conspiracy to not have 8.1 connect to the internet. Here is what's going on;
Wifi indicator shows "!" and reads "limited".
When I open the browser and click to diagnose the issue it runs through and ends with a message saying the default gateway has been fixed. About every fifth time it'll give me "The connection between your access point, router, or cable modem and the internet is broken." This computer works fine when plugged directly into the Ethernet cable from the router. Every other device on the router (other pc, xbox) work fine.

i somehow wasn't paying attention and deleted everything except the recovery partition and D: drive . now the drive isn't seen in the bios , and from what i have read it will all still be there apart from the boot record, im stuck because all the tools i find seem to be fir installing on windows and i have none asus.
Just performed a clean install of Windows 8 Pro. x64 on a new system. As soon as Windows finished installing, I opened secpol.msc, enabled the built-in administrator account, rebooted and deleted the first account I made during Windows setup and am now using the built-in administrator account as my main account. I don't care if the Metro apps. don't work.
What I want though is a way to change the account picture for this built-in administrator account. When I go into the Metro UI, click on the my username at the top right of the screen and click on "Change account picture", nothing happens.
When I go into the desktop then Control Panel -> User Accounts, there is no option to change the account picture.
How to change the user account picture for the built-in administrator account?
