If I wanted to change all my icons in my computer to "large Icons" it doesn't appear to apply to all my other icons in different folders, isn't there an option where you can turn all your icons to large small or detailed ?
i got a surface pro and i hooked it up to my dell u2311hm monitor. Now when its not hooked up, i like to have the display setting size to Medium - 125% or Large - 150% (default) but once i hook my mini display in, the dell u2311 looks like ass at Large. so i gotta bring it down to Small - 100%. Is it possible to have different settings for different display.
Is there a way to change the font size in incoming messages? I don't mean by using a screen magnifier or anything like that, but by setting an option that presents all incoming mail in the selected font.
Big drawback with the Metro version of IE is that it doesn't seem possible to change the text size -- on a large monitor using the "Normal" version -- the desktop version of IE I can change the text size at will and zoom the image which I usually have at 150%.
The text size on the Metro version is FAR FAR too small for me on a large monitor -- can see myself needing a "White Stick" if I had to carry on reading like that for too long.
This whole idea of rigid window sizes where you can't zoom seems ridiculous.
Note here -- It MIGHT work on a TOUCH screen by pinching the sides but
1) can't test it as I don't have (or want) a touch screen when I'm working at a Desk. 2) The last thing I want to do is leave smeary finger marks over my nice expensive large LCD screen 3) even if it had touch - I'm sitting far too far away from it to make this a practical method of working to alter text and zoom etc.
(On a Samsung smart phone I don't have problems with text size by pinching the screen - but I'm NOT working on a PHONE when I'm at my desk with a nice large screen).
I'd like to change the order in which certain programs in my startup folder load. I don't need to know how to add or remove programs from the startup folder, and I'm not talking about security or system programs. I'm talking about some programs I've added to my computer, which I use all the time in my research work, and I just want them to wind up in a different order on my taskbar for ease in switching back & forth, making notes, etc.
I have the new laptop with Windows 8.Is there any way you can change the apps on the start menu to be programs so I can view them as windows on my Desktop? Like Skype and Video or Music. Because I don't really like having to change from app to app to app to desktop to do what I want.
Recently my mom visited a website that tricked her. She downloaded and installed some stuff she didn't need. I removed the stuff but noticed some other problems. I'm not sure if these are new problems caused by the useless stuff she installed.
Control Panel -> Programs -> Programs and Features is not showing all installed programs. Oddly, the only listed installed programs have names that start with the letter M. 14 programs are listed. See picture. Start Menu -> All Programs -> I suspect some programs are missing. I have a Win 7 style Start menu because I am using IObit's Start Menu 8 program. Control Panel -> System and Security -> Administrative Tools was empty. I fixed that by using SFC /SCANNOW.
I tried using System Restore to go back to an earlier date, but that didn't work. In the process of trying to do that I discovered that BitDefender Internet Security 2014 doesn't get along with Windows 8.1's System Restore feature. I uninstalled BitDefender and successfully went back to an earlier date but still had the same problems with missing programs. I undid the restore. I created a new Windows user account. The new account had the same issues: missing programs in the Start menu and Programs and Features menu.
I have three external hard drives, 2 x 750GB USB3 Western Digital, and 1 x 1TB Western Digital Caviar Black spinner.
All three have identical data on them, right down to the last byte ... both for the size of data itself; and the size of data on disk.
This is true whether they are opened on Windows 8 or Windows 7 machine. Yet when I open all three of them simultaneously on the machine that had Windows 8, but now has Windows 8.1 ... while they all show the size of data, the size of data on disk is different for each one! Despite the fact that all three still show identical data on disk on Windows 7. Or even on Windows 8 if I reinstall it on the machine which 8.1 is installed on.
It is important because having the data on disk the same confirms they are exactly identical.
I increased the custom sizing to 500 and now I can't undo it, and I can't do anything at all actually. I do not have a system restore point either, my Windows 8 doesn't let me for some reason... this is a serious glitch I cannot believe there is nothing to prevent this.
I did have a system restore, got to it by holding Shift when selecting restart. I was nervous about using it but it said none of my documents would be erased so I guess it worked out. Microsoft owes me a tablet!!! Seriously though, quit making new products until you can actually build one that works properly.
I was scanning some papers with Scan in Windows 8, but when they were scanned and I viewed them in Scan the image was much larger than the original and I couldn't find any 'Original size' option or similiar. So how do I view papers and images in original size in Scan and aswell when I view them in Paint and other programs?
Purchased and installed Windows 8 Pro. I followed the instructions to redownload an ISO image and the size of the file is just over 2 MB. I recalled reading somewhere in the instructions or threads that the ISO should be 4 MB or larger and that my download is in error. Did I misread this or do I really have a problem?
I have the display set to extend, have the monitors set to the correct order, and the mouse moves easily across the two monitors. But I can't drag a windows from monitor 1 to monitor 2. I did remember to reduce the size of the window, but while it moves over to the side of monitor 1, it does not appear on monitor 2.
I changed the text size from default to 250%.the change happened on the first page of a website but when you went to a second or third page of that website the text was back to the default size which was smaller.why doesn't the change happen on the 2 or 3 page?i did not have this problem with windows 7.
I'm running an old touch screen in a mobile environment. And while I see great benefit to using Windows 8.1, I'm having issues with getting it to cooperate with my older LCD touch screen. If I could increase the size of the corner gesture, it would solve most my problems.
I've already increased the MouseCornerClipLength in the registry to 20, which is the max this will go. My screen just doesn't like the small tolerance Microsoft has given to bring up these gestures. I can cheat the calibration to make it work, but then it throws off the whole screen.
I have spoken with windows support... I used to have an option on my taskbar to adjust the screen size. They have no idea what to do. I can go through my computer and set the screen size to 100 % but if I am tapping while on the net it changes dramatically and I don't know how to control the overall size. It seems my upgrade to 8.1 has created more problems
A few weeks ago my start screen was suddenly different. Instead of the apps being visible across the whole screen it has been shrunk to fit only half the screen. I've had a kitten stepping all over my keyboard and this may or may not have to do with it. I've looked for a menu option to change it but can't find anything. I've tried just zooming out but it doesn't affect it. How can I make the start screen how it originally was?
I am struggling to get the right size page like A4 when printing specific stuff, I just don't seem to get it right, what I want to do is = put some text on a page and put some pictures onto the same page as I am using a special paper and don't want to make any more mistakes as it is expensive ive printed previously on normal A4 plain paper i have wasted tons so i want text, pictures together on the same sheet not spread all over the sheet. I have used the printer properties etc
I'm trying to find a way to make icons of images in Explorer larger than the "extra large" option. I don't see the slider in Win 8 Explorer to do that. Is there something else that could be done to size the icons to what I want them to be?
I am using Windows 8.1. Recently, when viewing a graphic on the monitor, I accidentally hit one or more keys on the lower part of the keyboard. The image immediately re-sized to a smaller size. Even when closing and re-opening the program, I am confronted with the reduced-scale image size. This has not affected any other software that I have on the computer, however.
I have built a rig to be predominantly used with Adobe Creative Cloud Programs. 32gb of ram, a 256gb ssd for Windows 8 (64-bit) and programs, a 64gb ssd for a home testing server, 3 hdd for storage, and another 64 gb ssd. I want to use the 3rd ssd for the Windows 8 page file and PhotoShop's swap file. My question is, how much of that should be used for each. I understand that the page file needs to be in its own partition, and I plan on allocating the remaining room for the swap file, but what size should I make the page file partition?
