well my bookmarks in chrome keeps on disappearing on my bookmark bar. i tried to import new bookmarks again but after 2 days, it disappears again and i'm getting tired of it it's already sync though..i'm using windows 8.
Just noticed today that on hovering in the taskbar, thumbnail previews don't show but just a line of text. This has started from a couple of days. In between, randomly, the preview will show up. But mostly it is not over the past couple of days.
My start menu button completely disappeared from the taskbar. I am using DisplayFusion and Start8 so I am not sure if those could cause this issue. I am able to still access the start menu easily by clicking the windows key but would love to fix this.
Due to DisplayFusion I can still see the start menu button on the other taskbar but Start8 does not want to style it or anything.
Example image: [URL] - The right taskbar is my main monitor and the left is the second monitor that has a taskbar from displayfusion
I have an XP style Quick Launch bar on my taskbar.* Every once in awhile, such as this morning, it disappears on startup and Sys Restore doesn't bring it back. It's located via %appdata%MicrosoftInternet Explorer and there's already a Quick Launch folder. Short of recreating it, is there a quick way to bring the whole thing back in one piece?
*Bring back Windows XP Quick Launch in Windows 7Being PC | Being PC
Update: Strange. I created a new Quick Launch toolbar, got rid of show text and show title, and all the links were there to be dragged to the left, only in alphabetical order, per the folder list. So problem solved, something learned. Though not sure why it disappears every so often.
After booting a Win 8 CP laptop this morning, everything works perfectly except when trying to get into libraries, this error message is shown:
Notice that also all library icons have reverted to default icon.
The same error message comes every time I open an Explorer window or try to open / save something. For instance when uploading the above screenshot here, I got this message when I clicked the Choose File button on Manage Attachments window.
Everything else works, sfc /scannow finds and repairs errors but this issue remains. Time to reinstall?
For some reason my printers no longer work. I tried reinstalling the printers and drivers but got an error message that the printer spooler was no longer functioning. The Print Spooler no longer shows in my Services. I cannot find it in my Registry. Everything I tried when I googled the problem did not work. How do you reinstall a Print Spooler or fix a corrupted spoolsv.exe file In the registry?
I have an HP laptop Pavilion g7 windows 8 Pro , that I have created restore points when I install things from time to time. But when I was shutting down the laptop, it must have ran into a problem, it wouldn't shut down, after installing a driver in optional updates from Ms,Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. - Graphics Adapter WDDM1.2 - AMD Radeon HD 7520G
Installation date: 5/12/2014 12:26 AM
Installation status: Succeeded
Update type: Optional
I had to power it off. When I restarted I noticed some of my programs weren't starting properly. Well I looked for a restore point an only found one. Before I had at least 6 or 8. My question is where have they gone. Is there a place where windows stores them, and is there a way to recover them?
When I right click an app in the start screen of windows 8.1 the customize bar at the bottom of the screen does not show up. What does happen is that I get a menu when I right click with the commands on the menu. What has happened to the customise tool bar? I had it once and now it is gone.
They were plugged into my old laptop which had xp sp3 , but i got a new base system with windows 8.
The day after I got it , it wasn't showing the 320 GB drive , but i shutdown , switched it off at the wall and it came back into view on next startup.
I had a partition. I cant remember what drive it was on , but its disappeared. I had a lot of ebooks , manuals and photos stored on it , but when i open "computer" , its just not there , even after shutting down , turning off at the wall and rebooting.
Still very new to windows 8 , so im hoping its something as simple as "view" settings , which I have checked , but maybe missed something ?
Lots of my apps deleted themselves without me doing anything, and some other (the Microsoft ones: weather, bing news etc, plus Flipboard) are just broken. When I try to open them, there's a page of the color of the app (red for news, light blue for weather......) without the app's logo and then it comes back to start screen.
I also tried to download them again from the store, and this is what happen. Under the "instal" button there's a message: "You already have this app. You can download to this computer", which it's ok, but if I click on Install, notification appears on the top right; tapping on it doesn't do anything, and the app isn't in the app folder. When I uninstalled and re-installed Weather (which wasn't disappeared, but broken) the app worked again.
The only "weird" thing that I remember I have done is to empty the bin, as I had memory full and wanted to gain some space.
Do you think this can be a malware? I already tried to open a new account, and it works just fine.
I enabled Hyper-V on my computer. When it restared I saw it was configuring Hyper-V. I didn't opened Hyper-V the same day. Two days later, I wont to open Hyper-V but I can't find it anywhere! Also, it isn't listed in programs anymore... I also enabled virtualisation in the BIOS.
So I'm running windows 8 RP for about 3 months got my hard drive partitioned C: Drive where windows 8 installed no problem with that
The other partition A Drive is where I download and Keep Media for my 3d tv ,folder structure as follows

Its been 2 hours since this problem occured. i started my laptop and saw that some icons were white, when i clicked on the icon it says "The drive or network connection that the shortcut Counter-Strike.lnk refers to is unavailable.
This is the screenshot of my disk management. I have very important data in these drives
I have a Lenovo Flex 14 - win 8.1 (64 bit).I have restored my pc and after the recovery the option to adjust the display brightness has "disappeared". The option is no longer in place in the charms bar or in Power Option and the adjustment keys (F11 and F12) are not working either.
So I woke my desktop from sleep, and there was no Start Screen! The Desktop wallpaper was showing, but no tiles, no anything. Desktop is fine, just no Start Screen. No tiles. No categories, no nothing. ???
I cannot find my desktop tile or the store app anymore. I have tried searching with the search charm too. I checked various users and they are not there either. Some desktop programs have gone missing too
In the last day my computer has disappeared from my local network. i have itunes home sharing and folders i share from this computer but suddenly gone. It is a problem with the firewall because when i turn it off it works right. i DID NOT MAKE ANY CHANGES IN THE FIREWALL AT ALL. Running windwows 8.1 64 bit. The only AV i am running is windows defender
I did a refresh on windows 8 because the computer was running really slow. after it finished, i could go inside the windows.old folder to access all my files including the program files from which i copied so folders onto an external hard drive but now there is no more program files folder there and i need some of the files and i did not delete any of them.
I've been dabbling with Windows 8.1 a little bit, and noticed something missing from it--at least, it's missing on my computer. I'd like to know if I am the only person experiencing this.
The problem is quite simple: The right-click menu for the Explorer taskbar icon has disappeared, and it doesn't let me close my open Explorer windows.
I have desktop shortcut icons for the C drive, and two external drives. Also, I have a shortcut icon for my USB flash drive, which I usually keep plugged in for backup.
I can have several Explorer windows open by clicking these icons. They appear stacked in the taskbar. (See diagram below.) If I have only one Explorer window open, the menu will have a Close Window option. If two or more windows are open, it will say Close All Windows.
This menu, and these options, seem to have disappeared with Windows 8.1 Preview.
I have just upgraded to Windows 8.1. In Windows 8 I had three apps appearing on my desktop (Currency Rates, Weather and another one). After upgrading, these apps have disappeared. I like to be able to boot up to the desktop and immediately see what the weather forecast is. So far I haven't been able to work out how to get the apps permanently onto the desktop. Can it be done?
