Menu Not Hiding After Updating To 8.1?

Nov 22, 2013

After updating to Windows 8.1 (from windows 8), start menu stopped to hide after choosing an app. I enter menu start -> click on desired application tile (if it is metro app, everything works) -> nothing happens -> when i manually close menu (return to desktop) i see that desired program is running. It is very annoying - in Windows 8 (and 8.1 on my friends' machines) i just needed to enter menu and click on app. Menu would close automatically and app would run. Now i need to enter menu, click on app and close the menu. I've seen some examples of proper behavior but it was rare and i couldn't identify the pattern when menu is working as expected and when is not. I really don't want to reinstall whole system P.S. I also noticed that search is a little bit slower, but this may be caused by the fact, that now it searches also files by default, not just apps.

Enable Confirm Window On Deletion - Stop Start Menu From Switching To Menu View And Change Taskbar Transparency

Mar 30, 2014

I've recently purchased a new laptop with Windows 8.1 pre-installed. First question is how do i enable a confirm window to pop up when deleting something? I don't like how i can just hit delete and it moves it (Only to the recycle bin, but i'd rather it didn't).

Secondly how do i stop the start menu from switching to that Windows 8 menu view? I did originally change it so that when you click the start menu (Bottom left in) it would actually bring up the start menu, but it seems to have reverted. On top of this how do i change it so that pressing the Windows button brings up the start menu rather than the Windows 8 menu view thing?

Thirdly how do i enable file details when in Windows Explorer. So in Windows 7 when you select a file it would give the size, name, author, date last edited etc in the details pane. How do i get that now?

Finally, how do i change my task bars transparency?

Start Menu Button Disappeared From Taskbar?

Jul 8, 2014

My start menu button completely disappeared from the taskbar. I am using DisplayFusion and Start8 so I am not sure if those could cause this issue. I am able to still access the start menu easily by clicking the windows key but would love to fix this.

Due to DisplayFusion I can still see the start menu button on the other taskbar but Start8 does not want to style it or anything.

Example image: [URL] - The right taskbar is my main monitor and the left is the second monitor that has a taskbar from displayfusion

I have ten folders in my Pictures library all full of pictures, and they get cycled on the Live tile for the Photos app, and also show up under "Pictures" once you've opened the Photos app.

Is there a way to hide a folder so it's physically in my UsersLibrariesPictures location, but WON'T show up under the Photos app?

Network / Sharing :: Hiding Computer From Other Computers On LAN

Mar 22, 2013

My neighborhood shares a wi-fi connection. When some neighbors see my computer is connected to the network, they assume I'm awake and accepting visitors. I want to prevent my computer from appearing when you click on Network and all PC's and connected devices appear.

I'm running Windows 8. I opened a command prompt and entered net config server /hidden:yes and "the command was completed successfully". I then restarted my computer and logged onto the network, however my PC is still visible along with the other computers and devices connected to the network.

What additional steps must I take to accomplish this task?

Network / Sharing :: Hiding Documents / Music / Pictures From Other PC Users

Apr 25, 2014

I bought a new PC with Windows 8.1 and I probably set up stuff wrong at the start.

I set up my wife and 2 daughters as Administrators like me but I thought that they would not be able to see my Documents or Pictures or Music as my Profile has a password. But they were able to see all my Music, Documents and Pictures.

Previously in Windows XP, all our stuff was separate and they didn't see any of my files.

Thinking all I had to do was make them Standard Users and this would rectify the issue but obviously it didn't. I have left them at Standard Users hoping for a solution from you people here on this Forum.

So I am asking is there a way on Windows 8.1 to have my stuff Private for me and for no one to see it?

Setup Installation :: Hiding Partitions In Factory Installed HDD (Lenovo Y580)

Jan 13, 2013

How to hid all the partitions in the factory installed HDD for Lenovo Y580.

This is the scenario.
Firstly, i successfully migrated all of the following partitions:
OEM/Hidden partition,
C partition: boot drive/ program files and data drive &
D partition: containing drivers

from my Lenovo factory installed HDD to the SSD and to use the SSD as the primary boot drive . Now, i plan to use the factory installed HDD as my data drive. (I am using a caddy tray for this whereby i plan to swap out the optical drive and pluck in the Lenovo factory installed HDD). However, for "safety reasons" i do not plan to re-format the entire factory installed HDD but rather to keep those partitions just in case if my SSD fails.

Hence, how do i turn all the three partitions above (in the Lenovo factory installed HDD) to become dormant? I want the computer to boot up from the existing SSD but then to treat the factory installed HDD as the data drive and not to read from any of the three partitions in the factory installed HDD.

I am planning to use EASUS as my disk partition freeware.

How To Make Task Menu Launch From Start Menu

Jun 14, 2013

When you launch skype from the startmenu it is a huge square, when i launch task manager from the startmenu it is launched to the desktop.

Could there be a way to make the task menu launch from the startmenu to be a big square like skype is "phone eddition"

This would be useful because when im in games and the game freezes, i can bring up the start menu like SUPER FAST and it is visible but when i launch the task manager it is behind the game no matter what, so im always pressing the key stroke of the first letter of the game and pressing delete to see if i closed the game or not.

Change Menu Background Color In Win 8.1? NOT Start Menu

Jun 22, 2014

I actually have no problem with the Win 8.1 Start menu, but the colors of the regular desktop environment are killing me. Namely, the weird, off-off white of the menus. The High-Contrast White option under Personalization gives me the right color for the menu backgrounds but everything else about the theme screams windows 3.1, so I'd rather not resort to using that.

Is there maybe a registry tweak that I can use to change this one little color? I've tried a few things but nothing so far has worked.

See attached pic to see what I'm talking about.

How To Pin Portable App To Taskbar

Aug 26, 2014

I have an external hard drive for all my gigabytes of music, and I have Media Monkey installed as a portable app. This setup is great for taking my music library wherever I go, but the shortcut disappears from the taskbar any time the hard drive is powered off, or if the shortcut does stick around after booting up, the icon is blank. Is there a way to get the shortcut to persist properly? Would there be a way to edit the autoplay.ini to pin the shortcut when the drive is detected?

How To Minimize A Tab To The Taskbar

May 14, 2014

received a 8.1 computer for Xmas, but only know how to navigate in Windows XP. I am constantly closing tabs by accident and loosing data because there is not a minimize or maximize icon in front of the X on each tab like there used to be. When switching between tabs, the X is SO close to the title of the tab, that I keep accidentally hitting it.

Is there anyway to minimize a tab down to the bottom of the screen onto the taskbar where I can keep it safe? Or is there a way to add the minimize and maximize icons to each individual tab? Or has the concept of minimizing been removed from the mindset?

Also, while I'm at it, is there any way to get all the tabs down to the bottom of the screen just above the taskbar. With this big screen I am really having to stretch to get up to it.

Why Is Taskbar Restarting

Nov 14, 2012

For the last few weeks, my taskbar has randomly restarted; that is, it disappeared for a few seconds, all the icons on it disappeared, then came back. Simultaneously, my wallpaper will disappear. This also happens when I try to

*Launch the File Explorer (D:)
*Launch Wolfram Mathematica in safe mode.

This is probably stupid, but I also feel this has something to do with java -- specifically, javaw.exe.

Taskbar Unable To Pin Or Unpin Anything At All

Feb 17, 2014

So I have had this problem for a while, where I was not able to pin or unpin any shortcuts to my taskbar, but I had what I needed there anyways. I just upgraded to the SSD and had to move my Steam folder to do so, which left the shortcut in the taskbar as a default windows icon, which I was not able to click on or remove. I went to the users/appdata/roaming/windows/internet explorer/quick launch/taskbar folder and removed the shortcut, but then all the rest of my pinned items also disappeared!

I can right click and 'pin to taskbar', but nothing actually goes to it, or stays there if tried with an open program. If I do this, in the start menu when right clicking a program I pinned, it will show up at the bottem as pinned (IE; it says unpin from taskbar) but nothing is in the taskbar at all. I did try sfc /scannow, which had some files that were corrupted, but they were totally unrelated to anything about the taskbar, and have been resolved with the deployment and imaging tool cleanhealth command through an elevated command prompt. I have also tried the 'clean and reset taskbar' bat that I found on this site, which also did not work.

I thought maybe my profile was corrupt, so I created a new profile, but I also cannot pin anything to the taskbar on it either. Same goes for the hidden admin profile.

I cannot right click on the start menu peek window to get the power user menu, or use the windows key + x to bring that menu up... Don't know if that is totally related, but I figured it might be worth adding.

Pin Desktop Shortcut To The Taskbar

Mar 3, 2013

Windows 8. All I want to do is pin a desktop icon to the taskbar. I've gone to every app on this pc, right clicked, left clicked, middle finger clicked, nose clicked, no luck.

Don't want to over simplify, but wouldn't it be great if one of those computer guru's had thought of this instruction?

"To put a desktop short cut on the task bar, right click on desktop and select pin to taskbar" or "just drag that huge desktop icon in windows to the taskbar"?
