How To Manually Resize Icons Sizes In Quick Launch Toolbar

Sep 15, 2014

What I am asking for is a request to manually size the icons in the QuickLaunch toolbar. I do not want a suggestion that states an alternative way for viewing my icons (for example, pinning programs or what-not).

I am asking to see if there is a registry tweak that manually sets the size of the icons in the QuickLaunch toolbar (refer to the image). They are a bit small, and want to slightly increase their sizes.

XP Style Quick Launch Bar Disappeared From Taskbar

Dec 6, 2013

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.

Network / Sharing :: Dial-Up Shortcut From Quick Launch Or Taskbar In Windows 8

Jun 19, 2013

Being impossible to get my dial-up shortcut from the desktop onto the taskbar of my new Windows 8 laptop, I followed the tutorial to add Quick Launch toolbar to the taskbar, and successfully moved the shortcut tothere.

With Vista, XP etc, one click on Quick Launch toolbar shortcut icon would open this "Connect TPG" window shown below. You then just clicked <Dial> button to connect directly to the ISP.

(Note: TPG is the name of the ISP)

However, with my Windows 8, three mouse operations all over the screen are required to arrive at this window:

1. You click the Quick Launch shortcut icon and the Charms sidebar opens.

2. Then you have to select the ISP under the Connections header,which causes a <Connect> button to pop up.

3. Which when clicked finally brings you to the above "Connect TPG" window.

how to open this window directly from the Quick Launch toolbar or how to pin a shortcut to the taskbar to achieve the same outcome?

NB, pinning "Network Connections" shortcut to taskbar is not the answer, as you still then required to the go through the same 3 operations mentioned above.

For further info, the properties window of the dial-up shortcut is shown below.

The target string is: {BA126AD7-2166-11D1-B1D0-00805FC1270E}

Reset Sizes Via Windows To Default Settings For All Programs

Sep 15, 2014

Some of the taskbar menus have appeared to have shrunk in size, especially on chrome. I fiddled with the sizing of my windows in the Personalization menu in Windows but this doesn't seem to have fixed it. On chrome m tabs are smaller and the text and buttons on websites and address bar are smaller as well. Skype and Word seem to be okay.

Or I could be losing my mind. Is there a way to reset all sizes via Windows to their default settings for all programs?

I did install Rainmeter last night but I don't think it has anything to do with it.

How To Get Quick Access To Library

Jan 5, 2013

I just upgraded to W8P and can't figure out how to quickly access Library to get to Music, Pictures, etc. which I do frequently. With W7 it was two clicks on the Start button. I've created a Computer tile on the Start page to access it, but I'm thinking there must be a better way.

Maintenance :: Windows 8.1 Image Backup Completes Too Quick

Apr 25, 2014

I have 3 partitions on my main boot drive. XP SP3, win 8.1 32 bit and win 8.1 64 bit. I ran system image backup in the 64 bit version at 7pm and it took an hour to back up these 3 partitions to another hard drive on my system.

I made some changes to the 64 bit OS so decided to update the image, and ran from the file history window with the same 3 partitions, this time it only took half an hour. I was given an overwrite warning but the last drive to be imaged the 32 bit win 8 seemed to complete very quickly.

If the partition hasn't changed will system image skip it and not overwrite the partition image? I notice there are 3 60gb files on the backup hard disk presumably each partition. I even checked the backup log to confirm the first took one hour and second only took half an hour. Using the get items command for wbadmin it says all three partitions are available for bare metal recovery.

Cannot Resize Partition Even With Free Space Available

Feb 4, 2013

I have a 200 gig partition on 1 drive that I have dedicated for games. But now it is filled, and even after shrinking my C drive to make space, I find that I still cannot extend my games partition. I've done a little reading and it appears that the issue is due to the free space not being directly beside the Games partition. I'm not sure, exactly, all I know is, I want to install more games and this technicality is preventing it.

Another thing that makes the situation more complex is that I have 2 other partitions on my drive that belong to Linux Mint. One is the main Mint partition, the other is a swap partition (similar to the page/swap file in Windows). I'm hesitant to try to mess around with moving those partitions since I'm not very experienced with Linux and if it doesnt boot I know I'll just reinstall it instead of trying to fix it. But I would like to avoid that in the first place.

I have tried with Disk Management, EaseUS, Paragon, Partition Wizard and GParted in Linux but they all wont let me make the games partition bigger, only smaller.

What I would like to do is to find a way to add free space to the Games partition, but without deleting other partitions or having to reinstall Linux. And more importantly, figuring out how to handle this kind of thing now so that I wont have issues extending partitions in the future. I also just figured I would say that I've converted the Games partition from primary to logical, due to the limitation of 4 primary partitions on a drive (maybe I'm wrong , but that's what I've heard). I say this because I recently had 4 primaries before trying to install Mint and Ubuntu, and neither of them would let me install. But as soon as I reduced to 3 primaries the issue went away and I was allowed to proceed. I figured that out after a bit of reading.

It is possible to move partitions on a disk so that they will be adjacent (either to the left or right) to another partition that needs to be extended?

I'm also posting a screenshot to make it easier for people to understand. The 36 gig partition is Linux's main partition, and the 15 gig partition to the right of it is Linux's swap partition. The pic also shows that both of those lie between the C drive and my games.

Setup Installation :: Cannot Resize / Move Partition?

Jun 6, 2013

Need to move partition over, did a minimal image restore with my new laptop. What it does is skip the recovery partition setup. So instead of 4 partitons I have 3. The problem is the first partition is now a 401 mb unallocated partition, the second is the EFI partition, and c: drive is last. When attempting to move unallocated 401 mb to the end of drive, so I can extend it, the program I use, EaseUS partiton does not "see" the first 401 mb and intead shows 0.0 unallocated space. Because of this I cannot resize/move the partition. What other method is there to remedy the situation.

Setup Installation :: Resize Partition On Windows 7 And 8 PC?

Jan 26, 2013

I had a Windows 7 laptop until I decided to upgrade it to Windows 8. What I did was create a partition on the Windows 7 side and went through setting up the dual boot process with no problems. Now, after using Windows 8, I would like to expand the partition size on the Windows 8 side since I only created about 30GB and Windows 8 will become my primary. So, what I was wanting to know is how easy or difficult is it to resize he partition without corrupting the OS.The closest I found was from this link Dual Boot Windows 7 and Windows 8 - Delete Windows 7 which discusses how to delete the old Windows 7 partition. Would this work on reducing the Windows 7 partition as well? I am thinking it should? I have backed up both partitions using True Image and there really isn't any valuable data on the laptops, so not concerned about losing anything.

Toolbar Is Taking Over Internet?

Jan 27, 2013

Yesterday I had to download WinRAR to be able to open up some files and during the setup it only asked me once if I wanted to download a toolbar. I said no... but after I closed the setup and opened Internet Explorer, this "Internet Search" tool bar is here and I can't remove it! It's annoying because I can't click a link that opens up a new tab but instead of going to the link it goes to this "Internet Search".... I tried removing it from my Add-Ons but that didn't seem to work either.

Cannot Move Or Resize Windows - Drag Mouse - Slow Response

Aug 15, 2013

Besides not having any drag and drop features for icons or files, I also cannot move the entire window by clicking and holding the mouse button on the title. I cannot re-size a window either. The close, minimize, and restore down/maximize buttons work. Sometimes when I double click on the title bar the window will restore down/maximize, but not always.

The slider bars only work if they are clicked in (and then only sometimes) and take a second to respond or will not respond at all; I cannot drag them. I cannot highlight any text to copy it; I assume because that is also a drag function.

Frequently, windows will not respond for up to a minute or longer and sometimes I stop them because they have not responded for more than 5 minutes. Mouse clicks frequently take 3 or 4 seconds to respond in all programs. I am not a knowledgeable computer person and do not know if this is caused by Windows 8 or the hardware.

I have tried to restore the system (three times), but there was only one restore point and that failed. I have tried using escape, various other keys, the right mouse button, and restarting. I gave up on restarting after well over 3 hours because there is a queue of 21 updates that have failed before and it was only on update 10. Shutting down and restarting does not work.

I have McAfee and have scanned the computer 3 times and not found anything wrong.

Setup Installation :: How To Resize Partitions Splitted By Recovery Partition

Oct 27, 2013

Recently I got my new laptop running under Windows 8.1 and was surprised with how the partitions were sized.

Here is the screenshot from the DiskManagement:

So I shrank the size of C: disk as you can see and got unallocated space. I want to attach that space to D: disk. I thought that is possible to extend recovery partition to unallocated space, then shrank recovery partition, and newly appeared unallocated then attach to D:/ disk. But failed with that.

I don't think that I really need those 900Mb and 350Mb recovery partitions and that they are useful, but it would be unwise to delete them while I don't know what are they for. Latter 20Gb recovery partition at the picture at least has the significant size to store something

Thinkpad X61 Tablet - Touch Keyboard Automatic Screen Resize

Nov 27, 2012

I have a Thinkpad X61 Tablet. It was running Windows 7 Ultimate before I upgraded to Windows 8 Pro. When I invoked the Touch Keyboard in Desktop mode, the window would automatically resize as I type (i.e. window on top, keyboard below). However, this weekend I performed a clean install of Windows 8 since I wasn't happy with some of the quirks from an upgrade. Now, I can no longer get the automatic screen resize when I initiate the Touch Keyboard (i.e. window stays behind keyboard, making it hard to see what I am typing). Are there settings I need to change? Is it something that was carried over from Windows 7 during my upgrade but I deleted it with my clean install?

Update: Just figured out how to get the automatic resize. You have to maximize the Touch Keyboard. I guess I must have been using it in maximized form without realizing it.

Faded Address Toolbar Type?

Dec 12, 2013

I have searched all the keywords I can think of & I can't seem to find this problem addressed anywhere. The type on my address toolbar in the taskbar is very faded. Almost like it's grayed out, but not quite. I had it do this when I first installed Win 8.1, messed with some settings, but none that seemed to make any sense & it went away. Now it's back & I haven't done any setting changes!
