Thumbnail At The Bottom Of Folder Window Missing

Apr 3, 2014

On the other Windows PCs I've used, there has always been a small thumbnail at the bottom of the window showing details of the item/photo selected, but with Window 8, this is missing.

Some details are there, but they are not easy to take in at a glance and I really miss the thumbnail preview. Also, and this is really annoying - the details don't state the size of videos. I'm not going to rundown Windows yet again, as I'm hoping I'm missing something simple.

Is there a way to get this feature back? I've worked hard to make 8 useable, but this little, yet much missed, detail eludes me. Although I'm sure more annoyances will come along .

Bottom Tool / Taskbar Now Missing When In IE?

Jan 22, 2014

I'm running 8.1 on an HP desktop, with IE version 11.0.2.

Some time in the past week or so, the bar at the bottom of the page when I am in a browser session, launched from the desktop, no longer appears. It's the one that usually shows the Connection, Safe to Eject, my Norton status, Volume icons, date/time, etc. I use automatic Windows updates, so I'm kind of assuming it was something there that did it...but don't know for sure.

All I want to know is How Do I Get It Back? I especially need that volume control icon, so I can mute all the ads when I open a news video on Yahoo, Bing, or MSN.

This bar shows just fine when I'm looking at the Desktop screen, just not in the browsers.

Maintenance :: Win 8 Keeps Deleting Thumbnail Cache (changed Folder Permission)

Oct 26, 2012

Normally in windows 7 I would change the folder persmission to deny "detele files and folders", but these options are greyed out on my windows 8. I'm the admin, and even if I log in as super administrator it's still greyed out.

How can I fix this problem and prevent Windows 8 from deleting thumbnail cache?

Want To Close Window When Deleting Folder

Oct 16, 2013

I am a long time user of XP and in the past year have taken the plunge into 8. Whenever I delete a folder in XP, if that folder is open in an explorer window, the window automatically closes. When I delete a folder that has a window open in 8, the window simply navigates to the default explorer location. When I an doing folder maintenance, I am basically ending up with a whole bunch of open windows.

Any setting I can change to make the window of a deleted folder close automatically?

How To Replace Missing Pictures Folder

Jan 31, 2014

When I click This pc one of the folders displayed is Pictures. However when I click Pictures it says this is unavailable.

How best do I now replace the Pictures folder with a My Pictures in This pc ....

Options Missing In Folder Context Menu Under New

Sep 10, 2013

I’m experiencing this odd and selective issue of options missing from folder context menu, under the choice New in most folders. Certain folders seems to have all the options as should. Down's a pic of a usual situation and the rare occasion of full menu, with Finish OS.

A quick scoop around indicates that the few folders to have full options on drive C are Desktop and Program Data. Some seemingly random folders on other drives also provides the full menu, but most only the option for New folder. This has bugged me to a good degree lately and while doing so unnecessarily hindered my desktop work.

I'm running Windows 8 Pro x64 (non 8.1) with Start8 (v1.16).

Security :: Set Task Scheduler In 8.1 - Win Defender Folder Missing

Mar 23, 2014

I am struggling to set the Task Scheduler in Win 8.1 to set a daily Restore Point and also to schedule Windows Defender to automatically update itself then run a full scan at a specified time daily. When I try to program the Win Defender function, I find that when I select the Win Defender folder from the left pane library, the resulting right pane contains no "Windows Defender Scheduled Scan" folder, so resulting settings seem to have no effect.

There are two other tasks listed in that right pane - one about cache maintenance and the other about verification (whatever that means), how to get Task Scheduler to work. I don't want to have to download another anti-virus program, but looks I'll have to if I can't get this thing to work. Of course, the inability to get a daily Restore Point may be an even bigger problem with this Task Scheduler, but I'm starting with Defender.

Setup Installation :: HP Laptop With Windows 8 - Missing Send To Folder

Jul 4, 2013

I have a new HP desktop, 8 months old, with Windows 8. Send To has never worked properly. The only items showing are BD-ROM DRIVE (E), or Removable Disc (F) when a flash drive is inserted.

I cannot find the Send To folder using, Run > shell:sendto, or with Search. I have used Refresh with no result. As the Send To has never worked from new, it would appears to be missing from the software, or the software as written is unreliable. A software update would seem to be what is required to resolve the problem.

From the number of inquiries on line and in the forums, it appears to be a major problem. Can we hope for a resolution when 8.1 is released. It did work perfectly with XP, Vista, and Seven after all.

Thumbnail Pictures Deleted - How To Restore

Jan 29, 2014

My problem is that all my thumbnails that would normally show as the actual picture in any file or folder including ones saved to the desktop have all been replaced with a windows generic mountain and sun cartoon. The only way I can see what any individual picture file is to physically click on it and open it up in a viewer. This is a royal pain to try to find any individual picture to say the least.

.I get a error message saying restore could not be completed...try choosing a different restore date.........I have tried them all.....same error message

It's very inconvenient especially with couple of opened windows.

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.

Windows Explorer Stops Showing Files Or No File Thumbnail

Aug 21, 2013

Annoying error of windows explorer. Windows explorer is getting crashed while opening any folders accidentally, especially folders with large number of files and images. first it appears as windows explorer is unable to load files thumbnails (any kind of files) and appears as white or blank icons regardless the type of file. then when opening my computer in another window , it couldn't load even contents of drivers and hangs as "searching for items".

All this happens suddenly after weeks of normal windows usage. I resolve it by backing up system using Acronis image. but the problem persists. I tried virus scan with no success using AVG. I made thorough scan for C with no result too.

Note that this problem I found with Windows 7 and it forced me to upgrade to Windows 8 then I'm experiencing the same problem now. I don't Understand why.

Note: I think there's no hardware (HDD) error cause I'm running Ubuntu 13.04 alongside Windows and it's browsing files perfectly.

Apps / Software :: Windows 8.1 Forgets Thumbnail View In Explorer

Dec 24, 2013

My Windows 8.1 64 bit started forgetting the view settings from a folder.So if I go in a folder and I set it to List-View for example,whenever I close that folder and I reopen it the view is set automatically to Details view.And this applies to every folder in my computer except Desktop.It drives me crazy,especially in my pictures folders.

Also with this problem another one came.I can't set a program to open some files,so the file associations for some files is broken. For example i can't set qTorrent to open torrent files.It just won't open them and the files apear as white documents just like I hadn't had a Torrent program installed already.I find it weird that both problems appeared together.

I previously had to reinstall windows on my machine,because of this problems.It worked normal at the begging,but today these problems appeared again.I tried scanning SFC Scan with no result.

Update:I also just discovered that Metro apps are not working anymore...what the heck its wrong with my windows.

Red Tint At The Bottom Of Screen

Jun 7, 2014

After updating my GPU driver (and I think, it failed) this red tint appeared It's only at the bottom though, it doesn't affect the whole screen.

It appears at startup and everywhere. It doesn't appear in an external monitor.

I have two graphics cards: Intel HD Graphics 4000 and NVIDIA GeForce GT 630M The NVIDIA is the one I updated recently.

I also tried reinstalling the NVIDIA driver but I don't know if I reinstalled it properly.

Yeah it's a laptop. A Samsung laptop.

Anyway, is this hardware related or software related? Maybe the failed installation is just a coincidence. I also have problems of ants entering my laptop so maybe they messed up the inside.
