Thin White Vertical Line On The Left Side Of Desktop

Nov 4, 2013

I noticed yesterday that there is a very fine thin line on the left side of my desktop. In the screen shot you can barely make it out, but you will be able to once you see ot from the left corner of task bar. it does not appear when i open a browser or a folder or even start menu. It only shows on the desktop screen and is really annoying. I tried disabling some odd services and restarted the computer as well, but still no luck.

P.S: Screen shot is below.

White Line Of Pixels Popped Up On Desktop - Dell XPS12 Ultrabook

Jul 22, 2013

I have a Dell XPS12 Ultrabook (amongst other things) and out of the blue a white line of pixels popped up on my desktop. It is there no matter what windows or programs I have open through the desktop however when I go to the start screen or open any other tile it goes away....I've tried restarting, changing the resolution, etc and can't make the line go away. Its still under warranty if it was the screen, but in the past my experience with blown out pixels (white lines on the screen) has been a screen replacement because its there no matter what....this goes away in the start screen or any other tile.... None of my other laptops/tablets with windows 8 have done this before.

How To Install Desktop Icon On LEFT Side Of Taskbar

Dec 23, 2013

Windows 8.1

I have installed Classic Shell in an attempt to eradicate as much of Windows 8 as possible. I managed to get the word "Desktop" onto the right side of the quick launch taskbar. I have to click on a tiny arrow next to that word. That brings up a desktop menu but doesn't go to the desktop itself.

How can I get a desktop icon (not the word "Desktop") on the left side of the taskbar next to the start button? In Windows 7 the icon was on the right side but I somehow managed to move it to the left side.

I know about Win D and Win M. Those are okay but I'd rather have an icon to click on to eliminate extra keystrokes.

Graphic Cards :: Windows 8 Pro - Left Side Of Screen Rolled To Right Side Of Monitor

Feb 5, 2013

This seems to be happening more and more, I am using my PC (with Windows 8 Pro) as an HTPC and its connected via HDMI to a plasma TV so the PC is always on. Sometimes, when I go to use the pc I turn the TV on and then move the mouse around to turn the display on and I see the attached image, it looks as though the screen has shifted to the right and wrapped around to the other side.

I ran windows 7 with the same hardware on this setup for years without an issue.

Left Side Pop-up App Sidebar Suddenly Gone?

Nov 22, 2012

I really liked the sidebar that popped up from the left of the screen showing what you had open in Windows 8. Now it's suddenly gone and I don't know why.

Also, I've noticed that when I launch Chrome from the Start page, it no longer opens a Chrome browser independent of the Desktop, as it used to. Now it just opens Desktop and launches Chrome from within there.

Cursor Moves Off The Page - Left Side Only

Aug 21, 2013

Can't move the cursor off the active screen to the top, right or bottom. But when I move the cursor to the left side, it goes forever.

I often do a split screen e.g. to look at two panels concurrently, you can go to the option between minimize & maximize (does this mode have a name???), move the panel to the right and you get a half-screen on the right. Do the same with another screen, move it to the left, and you again get a half-screen. Dunno what this feature is called, but it exists in Win7 & Windows 8, great for doing copy-and-paste from one to another.

Problem is, when I drag to the left, it goes off into space.

Browsers/Mail :: Favorite Lists Not Staying On Left Side Of Screen Using IE?

Dec 9, 2013

Using Windows 8 IE 10. I have a long list of favorites that I like to keep on the left side of my screen. For some reason the list does not always stay there. I have to go to the "Star" ( view Favorites") on the top right and use the pin favorites which will then put on the left, but they do not always stay there. I seems like a continous process. Is there a setting I am not doing right?

Browsers/Mail :: Opera - Net Icons On Desktop All Changed To Plain White Squares?

Sep 15, 2014

When I changed back to Opera, the net icons on my desktop all changed to plain white squares. So I thought, OK, just redo the links via opera bookmarks - same result. All of the correct icons have been replaced with a blank white box.

So I went into properties and tried to change icons, but only got the windows generic ones in sys32.

So I selected a globe of earth for FB and it put an icon of a little monitor with a bar underneath it, so I tried again thinking I had clicked the wrong icon, nope, just the same. Whichever icon I click on, the same one appears in desktop.

As I have had varying degrees of success with browser software, I am beginning to thing that the windows software itself is to blame. I keep windows up to date with updates etc, so it not the lack of, but something is not right at all with 8.1.

I never had this problem with any previous ver of Windows.

Desktop Top Left Corner - Can't Put Icon There Anymore

Dec 19, 2013

Today, for the first time, when I started my computer, the icons on the desktop (I use the old-style desktop) had shifted such that there was nothing in the top left corner. And I cannot drag anything up there anymore - there's this blank spot where I always used to keep my "My Documents" user profile folder. I turned off the option to be able to point up there and switch apps, and it didn't work.

Windows 8.1 on a Samsung laptop, still waiting for my recovery disk...

Vertical Scrolling Setting Resets To 1 Randomly Laptop

Mar 7, 2014

Every 20 or so minutes I have to keep going into my mouse settings to change the Verticle Scroll speed back up to 4, up from the default 1. This problem has been occurring since I got this laptop in november last year, and I've been up for 2 and a half hours trying to finally fix this tedious problem, I'm starting to lose hope and it's getting to the point where it makes me not want to even get on the computer. My Dell Touchpad program that came with the computer is always turned off when the mouse is plugged in, so that can't be why.

There are two ways for me to change the scroll speed, by going into the Windows 8 PC Settings>PC & Devices>Mouse & Touchpad, and the mouse properties that are in the control panel. When I change the Mouse & Touchpad settings they change the settings in the mouse properties but not vice-versa.

There is no KH-whatever file in my startup list.

Synaptics drivers for touchpad are up to date, as is the mouse driver.

My mouse is a Engage Optical Mouse, I've had it for about 2 years and I never had a problem with it on my last computer. My current laptop is a Dell Inspiron M531R-5535.

Browsers/Mail :: How To Text Red Shift During Vertical Scrolling

Feb 25, 2014

Text "Red Shift" during vertical scrolling? I've noticed it with Firefox 27.0, Pale Moon 24,3,2, and Operax64 12.14. The text on forums looks normal until I move the vertical scrollbar with the mouse. While the text is moving it takes on a red tint. As soon as the scrolling stops, it reverts to normal color. Pretty weird. Only thing I did lately was use a program to calibrate the Gamma.

Browsers/Mail :: Windows 8 With Outlook 2007 - Vertical Lines On Page In Received Email

Jul 10, 2013

I have Windows 8 with Outlook 2007 as e-mail. In the old XP days when ever I received e-mail with that annoying vertical line down the side of the page it was simple enough to get rid of them by using the instructions below. Now of course in this modern world things are different with tool bars turning into ribbons. When I open the e-mail there is no View.

Is it possible convert the XP instructions below into Windows 8 ...

Lets see if this works: Open the email and click Forward: Now, click View on the Menu Bar: Now look for SOURCE at the bottom tab and click: Now look through the SOURCE CODE and find a selection that starts with something called <BLOCKQUOTE>Now, if there is one line in the email you should see it once. For each blue line you will see it listed. Highlight each line in the screenshot below and delete:

How To Print Line Drawing Save As JPEG

Feb 24, 2014

I am very new to Windows 8. I'm trying to print a line drawing that is saved as a jpeg. I need to print it at 250%, but how to do so. When I try to print it, it does not give me the printer options like previous versions of Windows did. Advanced options only allow me to choose orientation and page order. It does allow me to choose size as far as full page, 8x10, 5x7, 4x6, contact sheet, etc, but this is not what I need. I need to be able to print actual size and scale up (or down) from there.

Audio :: Line In Missing From Volume Mixer After Reboot

Jun 11, 2014

I have an audio source connected to Line In and I use the volume mixer to un-mute the input when I want to listen to the audio from that source. I recently started having a problem where after re-booting Line In does not show up in my volume mixer and I do not hear audio from the Line In Source even though I have listen to this device active. (during boot up I do hear the audio for a fraction of a second)

To get Line In to work and show up in the volume mixer again, I have to go to manage audio devices under control panel and select the record tab. from there I can see Line In and I see that it is set as the default device and I can see that there is audio based on the indicator bars to the right of Line In. I then have to go to the Listen tab for Line In and uncheck "Listen to this device" and click on Apply, then Check "Listen to this device" and Click Apply. After doing all of this the Audio can be heard and Line In appears on the Volume Mixer until the next reboot where I have to perform those steps all over again.

I have the latest drivers and all MS updates for Windows 8.1 on a Gigabyte GA-Z87X-UD5H Motherboard with Realtek R3.87 Driver dated 5/13/2014...
