I've recently installed Start Menu 8 to create a win 7 menu and bypass the tiles, but now I don't see IE 10 listed anywhere. Where could it go? I didn't think you could get rid of IE10. I use Chrome as my default browser, but I would like to open IE 10 if needed.
I found a way to get my list of programs on to the tool/task bar. From there I dragged one of the programs to the desktop thinking it would just create a shortcut. It didn't. It took the program off the dropdown list and put it on the desktop. I can't find a way to put it back in the drop down list of programs. I realize it's not earth shattering but it is definitely a huge annoyance to me since I want to have a 'shortcut' on both the programs drop down list and on the desktop.
I am running a Win 7 OS on an SSD and I have some programs installed on a different hard drive. And I want to move this program files folder on the same hard drive but different partition. Is it possible to do this without breaking the program links?
What's the comparable way in Windows 8 to make all items in all folders as "list" pls. This is what I do in Win7.
1.open any folder 2.on the right with arrow down, pull down menu list,Details,Titles,Content. Choose list 3.on the left under Organize, pull down menu to Folder and search option 4.click on View tab 5.Apply to Folders 6.OK.
Any way to make all items in a folder appear as List.
My incoming connections is set to "block all connections to apps that are not on the list of allowed apps" why isn't there an entry for Mozilla Firefox on that list, it isn't blocked.
Also, I installed a VST plugin (software music synthesizer) and the first thing it did was check for updates (it phoned home), why wasn't that automatically blocked until I explicitly added a firewall exception? I don't get it.
for some reason every time i right click anywhere not just on a word it pulls this huge list of corrections that is terrible to deal with and annoying to see. idk how to get rid of it and could use some insight on how to do so. here is a pic of what is happening:
So yesterday I did a refresh of my PC (full) and before I did, I would have my speakers and my headset in the Playback Devices, where I would enable or disable which ever one I was usning.
If I was chatting on Skype I would enable my headset and disable my speakers and vice versa. However, there is no option, I have chcked for Disconnected and Disabled devices and still no luck, it's not a USB but more just pink and green colour coded jacks?
- All updates for GPU and Soundcard aswell as Windows are up to date. - The mic is working and is being picked up.
When I turned my laptop on for the first time, it installed Windows 8 automatically, which made me think there is a hidden volume somewhere on the hard drive. I listed all the volumes using DiskPart utility and it showed me some hidden ones, as expected. What I want to do now is to explore the hidden volumes' contents, and retrieve the drivers from there if possible. But the problem is, I don't know how to list the contents of those volumes. I could've used DIR command if they were accessible through the letters, but unfortunately they don't have any letters associated with them. how I can list the contents of the hidden volumes.
When trying to print from Devices "charm" in Microsoft Reader, my default printer is not shown. It shows up in Printers on the desktop. Reader does show, however, a fax version of my printer, which is NOT installed. I've uninstalled and reinstalled the printer....no change.
I'm using a HP Officejet 7310 printer, which has the most current driver, and works in all other Windows apps.
How do I add a website that will open in the 'Favourites' list in File Explorer? In the Home title, if I go to the 'New' section & click on 'New Folder' & type in the website address, that won't open at the desired site. I can open a website & right click & select 'Add to Favourites' ok, but that goes in the list of 'Favourites' on a website.
2nd post on this subject I want to remove two computers from my trusted-PC list.In security info the only option I get is to remove all trusted-PC.If I use this option will I have to do trusted-PC again for each Computer I want ?
Today I started up my laptop to make my homework. So I tried to enter an "a with umlaut"(SHIFT+' then a) but it would not work. So I checked my keyboard input settings and it is looking like in the attachments.
My main PC is a desktop running Windows 7 and my homegroup was set up on this PC. I have a laptop running Windows 8 and joined the homegroup - seemingly successfully as the control panel indicates that it is in the group.
On the W7 desktop. The homegroup icon lists the laptop and allows me to access the laptop files. The network icon lists both the desktop and the laptop. I could also access the laptop files this way, but do not need to as I can access them via the homegroup icon.
On the Windows 8 laptop. The homegroup icon just lists the laptop user name and then the laptop itself. The desktop is not listed. The network icon lists both the laptop and the desktop. This allows me to access the desktop files, but I would prefer to access them via the the homegroup icon.
Windows 8.1. I built a new computer yesterday, and installed Windows 8.1. I had previously run Windows 7 on my older computer.
Everything was working great, till today I decided to move my documents, pictures, music, and video folders to a different drive. I succeeded fine with documents, music, and video, however pictures seem to be a little messed up.
see the below screenshot:
At the top, you will see it lists folders for music twice, both folders show my music files in them. I realize these are probably just pointers to the music folder, but now I have music twice, and pictures is not up there.
However, when I check to show libraries in the navigation pane, you will on the same screen shot, it does list documents, music, pictures, and video there as it should.
How I can get those folders back up at the top as they should be?
Today I've had a bsod on Windows 8.1 pro 64 bit, I got this error pfn list corrupt and waited for the pc to restart and it didn't. I've turned off the pc by holding the power button for a couple of seconds, restarted it, now it doesn't boot. The lights on the motherboard light up but the cpu fan isn't running.
I Just wanted to know how to make Media Monkey my default player for mp3 & Flac everything except videos, How do I Add Media Monkey to the 'Set Your Default Programs List' as it's not there? And its not listed in Desktop> Apps nor is it in Firefox > Tools > Options> Set Applications List Also whilst on MM (I think these may by related) If I open MM GUI the USER CONTOL WINDOW pops up and ask do you want this program to alter your computer etc IF I select MORE and set the Slider to 'do not ask for permission' the Windows Control window media monkey everything Freezes (wish I could get rid of it) only way out is to turn off the computer I was thinking it may be that MM is not the Default for Media Monkey GUI just guessing
I had ubuntu within my windows 7 earlier. Later when i installed windows 8, i formatted the partition ( E: ) in which ubuntu was installed, since the wubi uninstaller was not working. Still when i start my system, it shows ubuntu listed in the boot list. I tried to load it once. It gave an error. There is no error when i select the default windows 8.
Now i checked the boot option in the msconfig as per the thread, but only windows 8 is listed there, no ubuntu. But still it is listed in the boot menu. I tried the disk manager, the only partition without NTFS file system is the one with status "healthy (OEM partition)". I dont know whether its a ubuntu partition. And there is no option to delete it also. No other ubuntu partition. I want to remove the ubuntu boot option from my os list. How to do it?
