How To Disable Scrolling On Start Screen Or Change Tile Scaling By A Small Amount

Mar 17, 2014

Is there any way to disable scrolling on the start screen or change the tile scaling by a small amount? I've got a 1680x1050 monitor and when there's 10 medium sized tiles across the screen, it activates the scroll bar, but there's no need for the scroll bar as all the tiles fit on the screen fine and scrolling only shifts them by a few pixels.

How to change the number of rows and a scaling tool that didn't work.

Asus Zenbook Infinity - Windows 8.1 Start Screen Scaling

Dec 8, 2013

I have an Asus Zenbook Infinity, and I have run into an issue that I cannot seem to solve. It came with windows 8, but I have upgraded it to windows 8.1. The problem exists with both operating systems.

Whenever the lid is shut and the computer is allowed to go to sleep for an extended period of time, the start screen scales really small upon waking up. I have attached a picture of what I mean.

Repositioning Start Screen Tile Groups

Nov 2, 2012

I'm using an eyefinity setup that makes three monitors appear as one 5292 x1050 resolution monitor. I would like the tile group positions to default to the center of the screens. Right now the tile groups are positioned to the far left of the left monitor. Is there anyway to get the tile groups to stay more to the center of the available screen space so I don't have to keep looking to far left all the time? I'd also like to know if there's a way to add space between tile groups. The bezel compensation eyefinity feature is causing some rows of tiles to get covered up. Are there any settings for this or registry hacks I don't know about?

Deleted Desktop Tile From Start Screen

Oct 29, 2012

I deleted the default desktop tile (the one that shows your desktop wallpaper) from the start screen. I've tried Recuva to see if I could still recover the file, and searched the internet and the installation disk. Unfortunately, the file it is nowhere to be found... Is there's another way to retrieve it?

Can't Find Show Desktop Tile On Metro Start Screen

Mar 4, 2012

I upgraded to the CP a few days ago and just noticed a huge problem. The "Show Desktop" tile that is normally on the start screen be default has gone missing. I can't figure out how I got rid of it in the first place, but is there some way to add it back?

I have changed the title to more accurately reflect the problem. A bunch of the features that come with Windows 8 CP (the tablet friendly Settings page, Remote Desktop, the show desktop tile, The Windows Store, etc) all vanished shortly after I installed Windows 8. I tried reinstalling and the same thing happened again.

Browsers/Mail :: IE Tile On Win 8.1 Start Screen Opens Firefox

Aug 25, 2014

I'm running Windows 8.1. and recently I tried to launch Internet Explorer (11) from the start menu. It launched Firefox. I ran a search from the start menu for Internet Explorer found it and clicked. Again Firefox opened instead of IE. I clicked on an icon on my desktop set up to open a website in IE regardless of browser preferences. It opened Firefox and went to the homepage I have set in Firefox not to the URL I had set.

Opening IE by browsing to to C:Program FilesInternet Exploreriexplore.exe. workes just fine. Creating a desktop shortcut directly to the exe works fine. I played around with the associated programs for internet and even with everything defaulting to IE it would still open Firefox when clicking on the IE Tile on the start menu. I uninstalled/reinstalled IE11 with no change.

So I then uninstalled Firefox. Now clicking on the start icon for IE it brings up a box asking me something about an exe with a checkbox (can't remember exactly) and below that Internet explorer or I can choose other down below. If I chose IE it brought up another window asking what I wanted to do with iexplore.exe. Save/ Save As / Save and Run. None of the options opened IE. IE at this point still runs by going directly to the exe in Program Files.

Logged off as that user and logged back on as a different user and ie works just fine from that profile.

I'm guessing something in my registry is hosed, how I can repair this?

Apps / Software :: Upgraded To Win 8.1 - No Tile Created On Start Screen When Install New App

Dec 14, 2013

Just upgraded to 8.1 this weekend. Whenever I install a new app from the Store, it says it's installed, and I can search for it and play it, but it does NOT create a tile for the new app on my Start screen??

I can search for it, then right-click on it, and click on "Pin to Start" and it creates a tile on my Start screen, but I want it to create a new tile by default when I install an app, and it has stopped doing that!!!!

How To Disable Two Finger Scrolling On Asus N56dp Series

Mar 23, 2013

I don't like the two finger scrolling on Windows 8 for Asus. It works decent but I still prefer the old fashions one finger scrolling it seems to be more fluid when scrolling through pages. For me it still feels unnatural to use two fingers; I want my Windows 8 PC back and toss the mac feature for two finger scrolling. I'm not sure why Asus added this because it really ruins my Windows 8 experience as scrolling is an essential function for workflow. I'll put it this way if one finger scrolling was enabled I would have a 10 out of 10 experience versus two finger scrolling I would have a 7 out of 10 experience.

Graphic Cards :: How To Change Scaling Resolution On Extended Monitor

Dec 23, 2013

I currently have a 15" PC with a 3200x1800 resolution. Using Windows 8.1. I have the scaling to highest.

My 2nd external monitor is 1920 x 1200.

I am trying to extend my desktop to the 2nd monitor but is there a way to use different scaling for both the PC and monitor?

I have unchecked "use scaling for all my displays" but no matter what, I still can't change the scaling on the external display. It uses the scaling settings of my PC (scaling set to highest because of 3200x1800 resolution) and because of that, the monitor scaling shows everything large.

Scaling Screen Smaller Than 100%?

Jan 7, 2013

Yesterday I installed the Nvidea driver for my Geforce 210 (desktop resize and scaling options) in Windows 8. After the update, my screen flickering black. System restore and it still works again.

Now I have a problem with the scaling of the screen, because the corners are not visible at my screen, and I want to retain my recommended and native screen resolution, to avoid a blurry screen.

Are there possibilities in Windows without the NVIDIA tool, to scale mij screen smaller than 100 percent ( the Windows tool make text smaller or larger will only work ABOVE 100%, and not smaller).

Apps / Software :: How To Take Screenshot Of Small Area On Screen

Mar 28, 2014

This is an absolute CLASSIC example of a TOTALLY BOVINE use of Metro - replacing the old accessories==>calculator by the Metro Calculator.

The wretched thing works Totally in Full screen -- what use is that to Man or Beast - especially if you have a Form or some text (not spread sheets) on your screen and you need to refer to them for your calculations.. What you need is a POPUP calculator that they had from the first versions of Windows 3 until Windows 7.

The calculator could also be useful as a popup on TOUCH screens too if you need it - but the stupid full screen thing -- totally useless.

I as actually quite surprised when I searched calculator and it operated like that. - Normally I use a nice calculator app on my mobile phone - but the battery is empty so I need the computer !!!. how to you take a screenshot of a small area on the screen.

My Pictures (live Tile) On Start Menu?

Apr 29, 2013

Ok, maybe I'm missing something but accessing the pictures (live pictures tile) folder from the start menu shows my photo's but not in the order I'd like them to be in. As such, to my horror I've found I can't move them around (re-arrange them).

I can obviously re-arrange them if I access the "My Pictures" folder through explorer, in fact they're actually arranged differently than what is displayed accessing it through the Windows Start Screen.

Anyway is it possible to arrange them there because trying to manually move them around proves fruitless.

Also, how do you take a snip of the stat screen using the snip tool? Win 8 can be annoying at times.

Deleted Desktop Start Folder File - No Live Tile

Feb 9, 2013

A user provided the OP with a file, and nothing was said about what to do with the file that was provided. I'm having the same problem, where I deleted the file by accident and now there is no live tile for the desktop anywhere on the start screen, not even in the All Apps category. I can't find it in the Windows Store either. What do I do? Here is a screenshot of the folder that I *think* held the original desktop file.

I would expect that the website would appear, but it never does. Other tiles act the same way, but some apps are executed when the tile for them is touched.

When Clicking On Tile In Windows 8 - It Brings Up Full Screen

Nov 17, 2012

How can we reset the size of the screen that is presented after clicking on a tile in windows 8? I have two monitors and have my desktop going across both monitors the way I like it. However when you click on a windows 8 tile, the screen it brings up fills both monitors. its annoying because whatever I am viewing is centered down the middle of two monitors and trying to read it is awful. I want to be able to set the window size that appears after clicking a tile to be half a screen (only one monitor). How to accomplish this? I know you can go to desktop mode and it will be sized however I like it, but I need to change the size of the windows after clicking the tile.
