I just recently purchased a windows machine and I would like to disable the right click area of the trackpad. Since you can use two fingers to right click, I don't see any reason to have that area designated for that purpose.

I really need a solution to permanently disable auto maintenance in 8.1.
I've tried everything in task scheduler. I've disabled 'Idle Maintenance' & 'Regular Maintenance' ... and I was finally able to find a way to disable 'Maintenance Configurator'. However, the 'custom triggers' for the latter are impossible to disable as is the 'daily trigger' which keeps re-enabling itself.
The auto maintenance is a law unto itself. It doesn't run when the system is idle. It runs whenever it feels like it ... which is usually when I'm browsing, streaming etc. I've put up with this for long enough. There has to be a permanent solution.
I have protected my pc at work and locked it down so that no employee can access windows 8. Only problem is that yesterday I accidently pressed reset button midway whilst windows was loading and it brought up the safe mode screen. Since I have a full backup image of my drive, I can always reload my preferred setup whenever I want via usb install, so I don't want windows to run into safe mode at all - EVEN IF IT MEANS I COULD LOSE DATA!
My question is How can I disable this safemode feature from starting at all if windows crashes?
Everytime I accidentally press FN+Left mouse, I enable tap-to-click (which I want to have off). I can disable the function with the same combination, but I'd like to find out a way to permantently disable tap-to-click.
I have Win 8 Pro now, but Vista and Win 7 behaved the same way, so I reckon it should be a Windows thing...
I have my laptop running windows 8, and whenever i boot it up it just shows the "HP" logo and then the spinning dots on the bottom, then it just goes to a black screen with a cursor on it. Now I cant do anything with this, seeing as it is windows 8 I cant boot it into safe mode from startup. I have an HP Envy Laptop.
After getting a new HP Envy M6 laptop on Monday I am now a Windows 8 user....after got familiarised with new metro style I have noticed that DVD maker is missing.... What has happened to this rather useful DVD creating tool that I come to love in Windows 7 as I there is No burn DVD option in Movie Maker....
I have bought a HP envy 15 and upon using it a couple of times I turned it on again and Bluetooth had DISAPPEARED it was non existent in any settings or the Control Panel or anything except in Device Manager. After excessive clicking around I found that it had been turned off so I turned it back on.
I have used it for a while since until I turned it on today and found it to be again completely disappeared, I have tried everything within my knowledge to fix it and right now I have re-remembered how utterly worthless HP are at making hardware. I cannot find how to turn it back on again if it is the same error, but I do not think it is.
If I go into my device manager now (see image) it has the exclamation mark through it which means what exactly?? Clicking to update the driver does nothing, restarting does nothing, I can't see how uninstalling or disabling it will do anything.
My laptop has 4 months old. Envy dv6 1TB, i7, 12 Gb Ram.
I was doing normal work, and I left my laptop downloading a torrent. Laptop not connected to power, so only running on the battery on High Performance Profile. I had lunch , that took me around 40 minutes, and when i came back the screen was off ( which is normal) I moved the mouse, I was preparing to login and suddenly the screen just turned all blue with big letters telling me INPAGE KERNEL DATA ERROR and that the memory or something was going to be downloaded and then the laptop would be restarted. Then a percentage number started to increase 20%,30%, 60% 100% and laptop restarted.
So I was using my computer the other day and suddenly my clickpad started tracking very poorly. Before it used to be accurate when it was tracking my finger, however now it jumps around the screen when I move my finger around on it and it takes a full second before the clickpad translates initial input to the mouse. If I put my finger on the trackpad and start moving it the mouse will jump to the location where the pointer should be and will not show the track that the pointer took. I uninstalled the driver and reinstalled it and I am having the same problem. I have restarted the system multiple times and it has still not resolved the issue. I cannot click on anything due to the insane inaccuracy of the trackpad.
Recently, I have a hybrid laptop (Lenovo Yoga 2 13). It recognizes my different laptop positions, so the keyboard is disabled when I rotate the screen.
But when I use it in laptop mode (using regular keyboard to type), I still get the touch keyboard on screen when I touch the screen on a writing field. How can I disable the touch keyboard if I use the tablet in laptop mode?
For Windows Vista/7, there was a very useful Tool called "Prio", with which one could set and save the priority of a process directly inside the Task Manager. But now in Windows 8, that Tool isn't working anymore, and there seem to be no alternatives either how it's possible to set the priority of a process permanently in Windows 8? Doesn't matter if by a Tool or by Coding, but is it possible somehow?
I have an HP Envy dv7 laptop running windows 8.1 I forgot my windows password so I made a 3rd party password reset disk. I changed the bios to legacy and disabled secure boot. The disk wouldn't load so I set the bios back to the original settings. Now I hear the chime that windows has loaded but there is a black screen.
I have recently upgraded my Envy 17 to Windows 8.1 and am now having real problems getting the DVD / Blu-ray to recognize any discs. I have done a search on the HP website but with not much luck, a lot of the time it just takes me back to the search page and the support pages are only for Windows 7.

Access to a mediatek/ralink bluetooth driver for the HP envy H8-1520t desktop. When I attempted to "upgrade" this Windows 8.0 machine to 8.1, it completely trashed the computer. Second attempt, Win 8.1 installs, but bluetooth no longer works.
Since i did a fresh reinstall of Win 8 64 i have never been able to change the folder view options. Example; I am in a windows explorer window, everything is displayed as a large icon (yuk), i right click go to view and change to details. I then click 'view' on the toolbar and click options, I then navigate to the 'View' tab whereby my intention is to apply the 'detailed' view to all explorer windows in future yet both fields are greyed out (the 'Apply to Folders' and 'Rest Folders').
It has never been usable since this fresh install (ie on previous versions of win 8 installs i recall it working, but not this one, ie its not a recent problem, has always been like this).
In Windows 8.1 Pro Update 1 64-bit I am not given the option to move files to the Recycle Bin. Instead, when I delete a file I am asked "Are you sure you want to permanently delete this file?"In the Recycle Bin properties for each hard drive partition I have not selected "Don't move files to the Recycle Bin" and I have check-marked "Display delete confirmation dialog."
I can't remember precisely when this started to happen, but I did install Update 1 recently. I don't know if that matters.
I installed Windows 8 Pro on a new PC. I ran into a problem where Windows automatically started at the wrong monitor timing. I temporarily used a TV to get to an advanced startup screen that had a check box for low-resolution. That allowed it to work with my display. I now have a video card that correctly supports my display. The problem is, Windows 8 always boots in low resolution and I have to manually change it after each boot.
The problem is that I don't recall what gave me the screen with the menu. It is not the blue screen with press F1 - F9. This was a standard dialog box with check boxes and a note on the side saying any changes would be permanent. But any method that allows it to permanently boot to a normal screen.
I have been looking all over i even tried phone activation with 100 different product keys and every time i cal that number 855 469 ..... and i put in the installation id number it tells we cannot complete this transaction because "Microsoft" has no "Record of this being a valid Product" and it tells me to verify that i have a valid product.....
I have installed windows 8.1 enterprise x64 in my Hp Envy m6-1102sa and i installed all my programs, when I was installing Eset Smart Security v 7 and i restarted system. I got a blue screen on it (kernel auto boot invalid lock release) 0% since 5 hours.
I have restarted many times, no way except system restore and lose my all programs, this is the second time...
I have an Xbox Controller S running on XBCD drivers for my Windows 8 computer. When I used these drivers on my Windows 7 laptop, I used DSEO to enable test mode, and it worked perfectly. Using the same method sends Windows 8 into a BSOD, so that's out of the question. The other solution is to reboot from the Settings menu and manually disable it at EVERY STARTUP. So, is there any other ways to disable DSE without rebooting every time I want to use the controller?
