Command Line To Activate Focus On Application On Startup?
May 17, 2014
i have a variety of apps in the startup folder which is set to launch on startup. eventually, i'd like windows to focus on Chrome (specifically on the address bar) so that i can start using it right away.
i remember there's a command which could be added to the shortcut properties but can't recall.
How do i uninstall programs from the command line? I know how to do it in windows, and i did that, but they still are there in my start/metro screen. When i click on them they open into a command prompt window. If i click uninstall from metro it just takes me around to add/remove programs where they have already been deleted?
As in image,i put a shortcut in startup folder for current user,that also appear in msconfig-> startup with status enabled but application is never run,If I go to that folder and dbl click on shortcut,it works,but on system startup ..nothing
I accidentally installed an adware called Rocket tab however I uninstalled it but after restarting my computer, I am prompted with the following error message. Now, every time I start up my computer this message pops up .
How do you turn your microphone port or line in, to a headphone port or line out port. For a while I would plug in headphones into the mic port and it would bring up a dialog saying I could change it to another headphone port but it never worked. Now it doesn't even pop up. I want this so when I go on long trips my girlfriend and I could watch a movie together using 2 pairs of headphones.
I have accidently set my .ext default program to Notepad and I want to change it back to an unknown application I have tried deleting it in regedit and it just sets it back to notepad even when I restart my computer afterwards
I recently reinstalled Windows 8.1 and noticed this white box around a tile or setting when I hover over it. It's like accessiblity or something but I didn't change any settings than what I usually do. This has never happened on any older Installations before. I think it may have imported a setting from my Microsoft account but I'm not sure. How do I remove these "autofocus" selection borders from the Windows 8.1/8 tile screen?
This is quite annoying me for a long time, things like confirmation dialog box, file copy Window do not get in front most of the times, either its focus is lost or it pops up behind the current Window. The only way to see those boxes is to click them separately in task bar.
This is a problem i have been having (win8pro, amd 4850, whql drivers)...
When/if a full screen game or 3d stuff hangs up, on windows 7 you can open the task manager (by any means, ctrlshift esc, or ctrl alt sup, or alt tab and right click task bar)and end the process, but on windows 8 the games keeps some kind of lock on the desktop and i can't kill the process because i can't get focus on the task manager...
I can see the task bar, i can alt tab, and with alt tab i can see what's going on the rest of the windows, but i can't input anything on them, except on metro apps and start screen, so i can't access the task manager and kill the app.
When something like that happened on win 7, you could still open the task manager above the game and end it I have to log off and log on in order to kill the application...
I am having a issue with new windows 8.1, it was all working fine few days back then of a sudden some applications, like calendar, Bing Finance, Mail when clicked automatically minimizes on the taskbar. It looks like it has lost focus and is not working.
I understand there might be a third party application doing this and most probably it is the Dropbox that is doing this. However I have tried clean boot and system restart with safe mode, none of which has resolved this issue.
On the same system i have an another user account, this account has no such issues. Every application works and opens fine. I am not sure what went wrong in my primary admin account.
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.
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...
I have this dark horizontal line that appears in windows explorer every time I'm in a window, It appears right at the bottom of the navigation bar, its not glaring though, just that its distracting and every time I hover around it, I See the "move" cursor which doesn't do anything. How do I get rid of this line? It was never there as at the last time I restarted my PC.
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.
I am trying to record from a cassette player on to my hp envy h8-1500z. I have a cable going from the headphone jack on the player to the blue line in jack on the pc. I have gone to the recording devices and have the line in jack enabled. That is as far as I can get because it says it is not plugged in? I have plugged it into the mic jack and it recognized that. I have tryed updating the drivers to no avail.
In many programs there are keyboard shortcuts . They are shown as capital letters with a line underneath. How does one use them? I've tried the letter with control key, shift key and alt key and frequently combinations of them but cant get any response.
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.
In w 8.1 If I open an app within seconds it loses focus. It makes it very difficult to type ie in e mail, the only way to get focus is to left click the mouse within the app and the cursor comes back for a few letters then the cursor disapears again. So any time I make an app active it becomes inactive quickly. To make it active again I have to click on it with my mouse.
My laptop has an HD screen, 1920x1080 to be exact. Some of my desktop icons are out of focus and blurry, but others aren't. At first I assumed that those icons were not compatible with an HD screen or something, but then some of them fixed themselves. Others are still blurry.
