I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Most of my pinned task bar icons that I have added are all simplified tiles with the first letter of the corresponding website.

ie: Gmail is " G", American Airlines is " A", Flyertalk is " F". Google is " G" (causing confusion with Gmail.), etc.

Is there any way to change these tiled icons to the website logo like in windows 8.1 or 7?

Thanks.

Hello, I am running win7 rc 64bit build 7100 in Dual monitor mode. I have a problem finding/moving an applications window that has gone out of the viewing area. I am new to Vista/Win 7 interface and not familiar with how to move a window with the arrow keys as I do with XP by right clicking on the running application in the taskbar and selecting Move. The application is Sony ebook reader. This happened when I had to remove one of the dual monitors for repair...upon returning it to the configuration, the ebook application starts, but the window is no where on either display. If I right click on the running application in the taskbar, there are no options to move. Other then removing the application, prefs and reinstalling...is there a way to bring that window back to the active areas? Thanks.

Answer:Move/Recover Offscreen Window

Windows 7 has a cool new feature that should help.  Click the icon in the taskbar to ensure that the program has focus. Then hold down the Windows key and press the right-arrow a few times. That should move the window across your screens and eventually bring it back onto the screen that is still active.Dave Bishop

I have a Nokia 920 and I pin tiles to the start screen to articles and websites I want to go back to in the future. One night they just all went black. They are still there... If you touch the areas where you should see them it will take you to the webpage. I can't repin the webpage again as it still thinks it is pinned. I sat down one night and redid all the mysterious black times only to have then go black one by one a few nights later. I can't find any reference . Help!

I've noticed that all the great windows 8 commercials show beautiful Pinned tiles for internet explorer websites. Most notable for me is Outlook.com. Can anyone tell me why my Pinned tile for Outlook.com isn't that same as the one on the commercial? Can you change these in any way? Maybe using something like Obly Tile? Anyone else disappointed with Pinned sites?
On another note, can you remove frequent sites from the IE10 UI? Its more history than frequent and I want quick access to favorites without sliding.

Answer:IE 10 Pinned Sites Ugly Tiles

I get a nice looking tile if I pin Outlook.com to the start screen. Not sure if it's the same as the commercial. I'll pay attention next time I see it. To get rid of frequent tiles. On a touch screen, touch and hold the tile. Then select remove when the box pops up. No touch screen, just right click the tile and select remove.

Each time I pin a new program, it shows up at the bottom of the list. Is there a way to alphabetize this list automatically, instead of doing it manually? Thanks

Answer:How do you alphabetize the pinned tiles in the Start Menu?

Don't believe that's possible- customisation isn't a strong suit where the start menu is concerned.

Perhaps one of the start menu replacements allows this?

This morning I found that my Start Screen had reverted to its factory setting. All the tiles I had deleted (Ebay, Netflix, Music, Games, and so on) were back again, and all the tiles I had added were gone -- about 60 tiles that were links to my folders and to certain programs, etc. Almost all of the links were to desktop apps or folders. I could pin them all back again, but I don't have a list of them. My desktop and my data are OK, but I need those tiles back. I've been on the phone with Microsoft, and they did a system restore from 12/26, but it didn't restore the tiles even though they were there yesterday. If I could just find a list of their names, it would be enough. Is there any folder that they might be in, or any other way to find such a list?

Hi,
Anyone else is having that problem?
One feature I love about my Nokia is that I can pin web pages to my home screen. I did it for all the blogs I regularly want to check and also for my local transit schedule and so on.
One day all of a sudden the tiles started disappearing. It's not that they're not here anymore, because I can still click on them, but there's no longer an image showing a part of the website.
Anyway it wouldn't bother me that much if I didn't use that as much. Now I have black spots on my home screen...
Can anybody help?
Thanks a lot!

Hi, since last week i'm noticing, that live tiles, app list and description of Edge tabs are getting grey or so dark that they are unreadable (only tabs).
All this is happening randomly and it is changing with every tab opened, changed or even with start menu showed up.
Here is picture of what i ment...only calendar tile stay in normal accent color, the rest is darker.
Btw all the apps are starting/working normally.
Anyone encountered the same problem, or even know whats wrong?

Answer:Live tiles, app list and Edge tabs greyed

Hey man,
I had the same problem as you; and I'm guessing that you are painfully aware of how little info there is of this on the web.
Some things to try: updating your graphics card driver, undoing any recent setting changes, etc. However, the only thing I could find to fix it was to do a system restore to a few days ago. To do so, just type restore into your search box and hit search; then select "system restore" or whatever seems like that option, and select when you would like to restore to.
Now, a system restore is a bit drastic, and I totally believe a simpler solution is out there, but I don't know what it is.
Keep us updated on what helps for you.

This problem is hard to describe. I have the Word (2007) icon pinned to the taskbar in Windows 7, and previously when I right clicked it, I could see the list of recently used docs, and I had a few docs permanently pinned to the list. Worked great! However, recently the MRU list and the pinned items disappeared from the Word icon list. Now, when I right click the Word icon on the taskbar, I only see the following items listed:
 
Microsoft Office Word 2007
Unpin this program from taskbar
Close window.
 
There's nothing else listed! This problem only seems to affect Word. Other programs (such as other Office apps like Excel) are not affected.
 
I ran an Office repair but no luck.
 
Any suggestions?

Answer:The MRU and pinned items disappeared from the Word icon that's pinned to Windows 7 taskbar

Hi,If the issue occurs recently, a system restore might be of help. Is there any change before the issue occurs?By default, most of the jump list history is saved under %APPDATA%\Microsoft\Windows\Recent\AutomaticDestinations as *.automaticDestinations-ms files. For Example, adecfb853d77462a.automaticDestinations-ms is for WORD. The Item that pinned to taskbar was saved under %APPDATA%\\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\TaskBarClick Start, copy "%APPDATA%\Microsoft\Windows\Recent\AutomaticDestinations" (without quotation marks) to the search command line and Enter. In the open window, find the adecfb853d77462a.automaticDestinations-ms, what is the "Date modified". Right click on it and choose "restore previous versions" if there is any. Close the window and check the result. If still no go, simply delete it. Meanwhile, delete all the files under the folder TaskBar too. Close the window and recheck.

Question: Recover A Website

I want to try and recover my website. I have made a mess of it on my hard drive (totally deleted) and want to recover it by downloading from my host site - if possible.

I have never had to do this before and I'm not sure how to do it.

I use FrontPage 2000 and normally upload using FrontPage.

How do I reverse the process?

Answer:How to restore offscreen VLC?

If I've understood the problem correctly(?), you might try this:
Open VLC and select it in the taskbar so it is the currently selected application (even though you can't see it)Let go of the mouse and be careful not to move it until step 6Use the Alt-Spacebar key combinationThere should be a little pop-up menu which appears. If 'Move' is an option, use the downward cursor/arrow key to select it and press enter. If 'Restore' is an option, select that option with the cursor keys, press Enter and go back to step 3Once you've selected Move, be careful to not move the mouse. Instead, hit one of the cursor/arrow keys (left/right/up/down) a couple of times*Then* move the mouse. With any luck the VLC window should come into view and you can re-position it.

Hello,

I was wondering why that would turn off IE Protected Mode? I did a simple test (off/on) and I noticed that using it seemed to be causing the flash effect, while it is supposed to work the other way around.

What is a "flash effect"?
What is "compositing"? (I've been wondering about that since IE3.)

I've been running IE8 on several machines since it first came out with Protected Mode off. Haven't noticed any problems but maybe I have the flash effect without realizing it.

I have a website, I am trying to get to work in edge. I made a website, and it is hosted on my internal server via apache running on Mandriva Linux 2010.1, on virtual box, on Windows 10 (which is the physical machine's OS).

I tested this website in Internet Explorer, by going to the main page, opening it in Internet Explorer, and then clicking the hyperlink to go there. It works from there. I tested in firefox and chrome, and it works there too. But it won't work from edge.

I found out the reason: edge is coded to make the page redirect from http to https, and I don't want it to run over https, and it is not set up to run over https. What trick either in my webserver or in edge's configuration can I use to get around this? Or if that's not possible could you tell me how to get the same content working over https, without having to deal with certificates or anything, and no warnings about certificate errors? https is not really needed for this website, because it's just a list of hyperlinks to other pages.

Hello,

Does anyone know of a trick/solution to viewing information outputted by ipconfig /all that appears offscreen to the right? There's no scrollbar in the Command Prompt program and I can't highlight my way to the end of the cmd prompt, so I'm baffled as to how I can go about reading the last 16 bits of the DHCPv6 Client DUID of my LAN adaptor. I'd really appreciate any help on this.

Additionally, why is the link-local IPv6 address and DNS Servers information terminated with %12 in ipconfig?

Thanks!

Answer:Ipconfig offscreen info in cmd prompt

There's no scroll bar in the program because the text is limited to 80 characters across. On my system the information automatically wraps around on the next line.

But, I don't have the %12 issue either. Please post a screenshot of this issue so we can have a better idea of what's going on.

The only thing that changed was I had to reinstall HP's AMD W8 drivers under compatibility mode; furthermore installing the latest WU updates did not resolve this issue.

Answer:Edge - website loading issues

Exactly !! I also have same issues for Edge and really irritated due to these issues.

Hi.  Brand new computer, 4 days old.  Still loading it up with stuff from my old laptop.  Removed Norton with the removal tool and installed Eset Smart Security.  Very little else installed yet.
 
 
I need to go to the Australian retailer Coles reasonably often.  Chrome is my preferred browser.  When I try to get to the website I get:-
 
www.coles.com.au unexpectedly closed the connection.

Try:
Checking the connection
Checking the proxy and the firewall
Running Windows Network Diagnostics

 
 
Connection is fine, can get anything else I want.  Firewall is not on as I'm running Eset.  Diagnostics is as useless as ever and says it can't determine the problem as usual.
 
HOWEVER, if I use the Microsoft Edge browser, no problem - straight to Coles.
Anyone hazard a guess as to why this is the case?

My problem is I find MS Edge does not always react the same to sites that appear to have website certificate error problems.

The following two url's are basically for the same site, due to a change in the name of the government department at some or other stage.

Daily State of Dams

Daily State of Dams


Both sites offer a facility where one can display data accessed from a database in a map form. One can display the latest data for the most recent date in the data base which always works. But on the one site (the official new site), DWS Landing Page), choosing a previous date to the latest on will just display a place holder instead of the map,



yet on the older site, it will display a website certificate error message, which then allows one to proceed anyway and then get the map.



Can anyone offer an explanation why this is please? Iin other words why does MS edge not routinely display the error message instead of a place holder?

Further, using another browser such as Chrome will offer one an option to display the image in a separate window which then allows one to see the image. This facility is not available in MS Edge consistently. Any reason why not?

Hi!
I am facing a weird issue with the YouTube website on the Edge browser. When I bought the laptop a month ago, it was working fine until two days back. My McAfee AV trial, which was bundled with the laptop, ran out and I uninstalled it. Since then only the YouTube website is looking all scrambled up. Please take a look at the attached screenshot;

Hello everyone,

First post here and thanks for allowing me to be a part of the community!

My first question is while attempting to pin a website to the task bar in Edge I followed the directions and selected the "3 dots menu" and then selected "open with IE" option as instructed.

When I click on the webpage icon in the task bar the site indeed comes up but it is in Internet Explorer rather than Edge. Is there any way I can pin the site to the task bar and have it launch in Edge rather than IE? I understand it opens in IE because I opened the website in Edge and then told it to open with IE.

When I tried pinning the tab to the task bar in Edge I got the universal red circle with the line through it so I couldn't pin it unless I opened it in IE.

Ive noticed when I pin a website to the Start Menu that it will open in Edge. Is it not possible to have this happen by using the task bar?

Thanks so much for your help.

Appreciate interacting with you folks very much.

best,

rick

Just recently Edge has been giving me an error message stating "There is a problem with this site's security certificate" when I try to log onto my work site remotely. I know the site well, have spoken to their IT department and have been assured the certificate is up to date. I have verified my computer has the correct date and time. I have tried accessing the site with MS IE with the same results. There is an option to ignore the warning and proceed anyway, but nothing happens when I click it. Fire Fox allows me to get to the website and log in, but then it seems Citrix will not allow me to access the content. I had previously been able to access the site and its content with Edge. I am not aware that anything has changed on my computer and the IT department for the site I am trying to access notes that they are not having any problem with remote access when they personally log on, and have not received any other calls about problems. They note multiple users are currently logged on. They insist the problem is in my computer. Any ideas on how to fix this?

However when I click on one of the links to open it I get "Hmm, we can't reach this page. Try this: make sure you have right address or refresh page." All links were working fine before I ran the update. I have exactly the same problem with my daughter's laptop. All searches work fine on anything not using Windows 10. Any ideas??

When using any version of IE Explorer, when viewing a webpage and want to create a desktop shortcut to that webpage I would simply right click just about anywhere on the webpage and select Create Desktop Shortcut from the drop-down Menu and Presto a new icon shortcut would appear on the desktop.

However, when using MS- Edge, when I Right Click on any webpage all I get is a small drop down-down menu with no selection to create a Desktop Shortcut. Please don't tell me that MS has removed this feature in Edge and I am just missing something or there is a flaw in my system. I have tried every which way to create a Desktop Shortcut of something I am viewing when using Edge to no avail.

Answer:Creating Desktop Shortcut To Website When Using MS Edge

I'm with you on this one!
So far the only way I have found is to add the page to a reading list by clicking the Star at top right, selecting Reading List and then Add.
It's not ideal but it's better than nothing.

Another roundabout way is:
While viewing your wepage in Edge,

Click the three dots at top right
Choose Open with Internet Explorer

Now you can create your shortcut as you were used to. The shortcut will open in Edge if that's your default browser.

No, I didn't stutter.

I'm wondering if there is a way to batch delete all the user-pinned items that show up when I right-click, say, the OOffice Writer user-pinned icon on the task bar, revealing all my user-pinned documents (as well all the recently opened non-pinned docs)?

I know I can delete them individually, one-by-one, but I'm wondering where they're listed, say, in the registry or in appdata, or something, that would allow me to delete them all at once.

Or just add URLs (as apps for the start menu) for Outlook.com mail, calendar and people.

A friend with a Lenovo i7 P50 Thinkpad with Win 10 factory installed. Creators Update installed via Windows Update a few weeks ago. Called me last week reporting that he could no longer view web pages using Edge, Chrome, Firefox, or IE. I checked event viewer and saw one of his music creation programs was using a proxy server that was failing. I uninstalled the program and he was able to access web sites for a week, then yesterday the problem came back but no related errors in event viewer. Opening up a CMND window I could ping and tracert any web site without problems. His e-mail works. team viewer works. The web browsers will not connect, hang sometimes, and when closed and exited can still be seen running under task manager or process explorer. I get an error message saying the program can not be terminated when I try to kill it with process explorer or task manager. I ran a half dozen or more antivirus / malware programs which only come up with PUP's and one or two malware not related to this problem. NO proxy settings seen in the browser / internet settings. Running ipconfig /flushdns /release /renew doesn't help either. Suggestions appreciated. - Steve

I put about ten shortcuts onto my desktop, such as ones for eBay, Google, Amazon, etc.; however, they all have Edge's standard blue icons. This makes the whole group appear as a monolithic bunch of icons that all look the same and not so easy to read. Is there a way to change these desktop icons to the various websites' favicons, making them easier to see/read/use?

I think that you can right-click a shortcut, then choose "Properties," then click on "Change Icon." However, from there, I'm stuck, because it offers me the option of browsing to the icon I want, but I don't know how to get to any favicon that I might want.

It's easy to find those websites' favicons, using Google images, and I can then save them onto my desktop, but I don't know how to get them from there onto their relevant shortcuts. I think there is a cache, called something like "shell32.icon" or whatever, which holds icons, but I'm not sure if that's anything I want to mess with, because I'm fully aware that messing with those kinds of files can lead to disastrous results, such as the computer freezing up, the 'blue screen of death,' etc.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

When I try to access this website the windows authentication pop-up appears.
Moreover no chance to remember my credentials. If I restart Edge and open this website than authentication form appears

At IE and Chrome the user is automatically authenticated without any windows authentication form, no issue. 

In addition to that I played with "Internet Options\Local Intranet" and "Internet Options\Trusted sites"

Answer:Work tiles and play tiles

Not really. Only way is to set up two accounts, or place all the tiles for work & all the other tiles into a folder. Personally it is easier to just use Stardock software's Metro Mix and do everything from the desktop.

At least then you can do what you want, and have them grouped on the desktop.

Hello everyone, I've had my Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga for a few days now, and so far I'm loving it.
Yesterday I set up my start screen, so that I had a full row of tiles (of different sizes) on each tile group. However, when I logged on my pc now a while ago, the number of tiles on each row has lowered, so that instead of just having one row on each group, there now are two.
I don't have a screenshot of how it was before, but here is one of how it is now.
Notice how for example the Desktop Tile was moved over to the second row of tiles? It used to be on the bottom of the first. And it's the same story on all the other rows.

When browsing a website that I have pinned to my taskbar (Facebook for example) I've noticed that the pages take longer than usual to load. When it does load, the page becomes very choppy when I'm scrolling up/down and is generally slow to respond.
It's the same for any website I have pinned to my taskbar.

The strange thing is, If I open up IE9 (non-pinned) and browse using the address bar everything is smooth and fast. Any ideas of why this is happening?

I've cleared my temp internet files and reset IE to default settings with no luck. I've also tried un-pining then re-pinning website but it's still the same.
Is there a way I can clear the cache for individual pinned sites?

Answer:Pinned sites are slower than non-pinned sites.

Reinstalled ie9
Reset ie9 settings
Uninstalled Flash/Java

Removed as much third party software as I can

Hi all, a while ago I had the idea to start from scratch to clean up the system and gain more performance. But I have not done yet because I have some doubts.


On the PC I have Acronis True Image Home 2011
--> In the part where it says My backups I see the image that I have saved.
--> When I click on "Explore and recover" :To the right I see 2 items to recover: "Reserved for System and Local Disk (C)"
Therefore, the partition (D)will remain intact. Right ? But if I want to restore everything, both partitions, i have to use the option "Files and folders" ?

Extra info : I did not create the image, other person is who created it :P

Answer:Difference between recover partitions or recover files and folders.

How long ago was that Acronis image made?

I guess I don't understand your intent. You talk about starting over to clean up and gain more performance, but then express interest in restoring "everything".

Was that image made at a time when your system was running perfectly? How has your system changed since that date? If you restore, you will have to reinstall any applications you've acquired since the image was made. And that image won't contain any personal data acquired since it was made. Maybe it contains no personal data at all?
If you are going to "start from scratch", I assume you mean you want to do a clean install of Windows.

If you were to do that, the only thing in that image file that might possibly be important to you would be personal files---pictures, videos, mp3s, Word documents, browser bookmarks, possibly email, etc. And that would be personal files as of the date of that image, not your current personal files. And not Windows itself.

If I wanted to "start over", I would:

1: back up all current personal files to some other drive, probably external. I would NOT use an image for this. I'd just copy them with the mouse.

2: reinstall Windows.

If I did those 2 things, the contents of the Acronis image would be irrelevant.

You should forget about Acronis if you don't understand it or know whats in any images you have. Particularly if you didn't make the image yourself. Images can fail you anyway. I'd never rely on them exclusi... Read more

After go to Emulation, in Browser select or Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox, and Solutionated.

I'm not exactly sure about what you're saying.. Afaik Google hasn't implemented any limits for Edge users. Do you have proof of this? The picture you have added does not proof that Google has implemented a limited number of searches for Edge users

Hello to all, This is my first post.
Today I found out that Google had limited its search service on Edge by MicrosoftInsider.es, and this happens
This is a great hoax, and also seems to make it or for two reasons:
1. Attempt of Stop of growth of Microsoft Edge
or 2. Google Revenge
What is the solution? This:
Press F12 (if you are on a laptop press Fn + F12), This open the F12 Tools
After go to Emulation, in Browser select or Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox, and Solutionated.
Well, I hope to see their opinions and also see that users of Google in Edge make.
Kind Regards :)

I've been having this problem since I upgraded to the creator's update. Sometimes everything works perfectly, but most of the time I have these issues:

Edge won't connect to internet or load anythingI can't close tabs in EdgeThe "Close all tabs" option in edge doesn't work, only closes 1 tabI can only get Edge to close using Task ManagerWindows Store apps like Twitter and Netflix won't connect and also sometimes won't closeI can't check for Windows updates through settings (won't connect again)

The internet works on third party apps that weren't downloaded in the Windows Store, like Chrome, Firefox, Opera, and Spotify. Does anyone have any idea what could be causing this or how I could fix it? Thanks so much!

Answer:Internet Not Working in Edge & Windows Store Apps, Edge Won't Close

Hi ineedhelppls. Welcome to the TenForums @ineedhelppls

First thing I would do is run these commands at command prompt(admin). In the following commands do not key in the information in brackets, it is there to tell you what command does.

ipconfig /flushdns (Clear the dns cache)
nbtstat -RR (release and refesh NetBIOS names)
netsh int ip reset (reset ip settings)
netsh winsock reset (Reset Winsock Catalog)

Test.

Then I would disable IPv6. You will notice it can be enabled just as easy.

If you still get issues I would recommend a network reset. You will lose wireless passwords.

Start=>Settings=>Network and Internet=> scroll down to bottom on the right hand side, last option, Network Reset.

Microsoft Edge does not have any control buttons, from the opening page you have to search to get to any website.
Does anyone know how to get these to work in edge? As of right now it is a useless program and a huge step backwards from IE11.

Answer:Edge has no back, forward, home, url, favorites, or settings. How can I get all of these to work in Edge?

if you are talking about the mobile version i have to say it haves all of the above exept the forward button

Since installing the November Windows 10 update (11/17/15) none of my favorites are being stored in the default Edge folder. While in Edge the favorites are available but when I go to the default folder they are not listed. Is there another location they may be being saved or has my default location somehow been changed? My AppData folder shows a creation date of 11/17/15 with no modifications being made in favorites since that date.

Answer:Microsoft Edge Favorites not in default folder but availalbe in Edge

I ve bought thinkpade edge 13 (0221RY6) and formated my hdd (was trying to install win XP). But now i am ready to switch on Windows seven and i am very sorry that i ve formated my HDD with pre installed windows 7.Somebody who has same machine PLS Can u give me your copy of recovery usb or link on it! Or any other help.THANKS!

Answer:I have lost my Recovery HDD with pre installed windows 7 on ThinkPad Edge 13 edge PLS Need HElp!

This is why one should burn recovery media before fiddling with the HD.
 
One option would be to download a legal Windows 7 ISO and install it.  Or borrow one.  You can use the product key on the bottom of your machine (or in the battery compartment) to activate the installation.  You may have to use the phone option to activate.
 
Working Legal Windows 7 Download Links 
 
To do this you must install the same version of Windows that came on your machine - but it can be either 32 or 64 bit.
 
Your machine came with Win7 Home Basic 32.  I can't say for certain that these "all version" ISOs include that version, but you can try and see.
 
Once you have Windows installed, go to the Lenovo support page and enter your machine type.  That will take you to a list of drivers and apps to download.  Expand the ThinkVantage option and install ThinkVantage System Update.  You can then run it and it will download and install the other software automatically.
 
I'm basing this on what I see on the US pages.  Yours may be different.
 
Good luck,
Z.

Question: pinned????

How do I get rid of that damned pin. I dont need anyone to know where I have been after I leave the computer

Answer:pinned????

Hi LENW,

I think you're referring to the jumplist history, as opposed to just having pinned items?
If so, You can un check this here, and your recent activity won't save to the jumplists. You might also use the instructions in this tutorial if you still want to use the jumplist history in your Windows session, and then have it cleared when you log off or restart.
Clear Recent Items and Documents on Exit of Windows 7
