Preferred Solution: Left-hand IE pane has been hijacked

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.)

If I expand a folder that's down towards the bottom and there's a lot of subfolders, then everything moves up to make room for the subfolder list. That's as it should be. But about the time I go to click on one of the subfolders, the whole list moves down again and you have to scroll back down to get where you want. After that, it stays put. It's an bug/annoyance that I hope someone gets fixed.
Just my 2 cents worth.

Answer:Windows Explorer left hand pane

I think the OP is noticing the little quirk in Win 7 where Explore does not bring the left pane target folder (the one with focud) up to the to of the pane, throwing it instead to the bottom of the pane.

A nuisance for sure, but unresolved to my knowledge.

Hi,

i love the new left side pane in folder view, but i cannot seem to get it to show 'Desktop'

id like to place it where the red line is

[also, can you change the icons for 'libraries' ]

Answer:Customize the left hand folder pane?

Hi al4x,

The closest I got with adding the desktop icon to the side pane is you can add the desktop Icon by clicking the Favorites arrow.(it might be already there). If you don't have any favorites or the arrow is not there you can add the Desktop Icon to it by Clicking and holding the icon and drag it to the favorites tab..



I have not been able to figure out if you can just add an icon anywhere in the side pane my guess in no..

And I have not found a way to change the icons for the libraries..(I don't think you can)

Hope this Helps..

I am very new to the PC world, trying to find my way around and running XP. During this learning process I somehow lost the Windows Explorer Default Pane to the Left of the window (it used to show System Tasks/Other Places/Details in separate panels).I can still get Search and Folders by pressing the buttons in the tool bar but when both are de-selected I only have a large window with no sign of the original panel.Please can someone tell me if it is possible to recover this information as I found it very helpful. If so can you also tell me how to do it in simple terms.Many thanks.

Answer:Windows Explorer - Left Hand Default Pane

Open any Explorer window, select Tools from the top of the window, select Folder Options. Under the first heading (Tasks) make sure "Show Common Tasks In Folders" is selected, if not left click it. Click OK.

I recently bought an HP laptop at Costco online. They let me configure it, and I put in one of the high end, 512 MB video cards. I love the games. I wonder if that exacerbates the problem. Gets pretty warm under my left hand, where it rests on the laptop. Is there any solution for this? Any gizmo or add on that would help this problem?
I could conceivably return the laptop, but I hate to. Any input is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Silly question, I expect, but no manual accompanied the laptop (T400), which is second hand. Anyway, there's an ejectable latticed tray on the short side on the left with numerous places for things. But what things? Anybody know? It might be useful for expanding hard drive capacity for example... Apart from the quick setup guide and instructions for professional technicians, there doesn't seem to be an ordinary user's guide for this Lenovo thinkpad. There's nothing on Lenovo,com's website - which is strange to say the least. There must be one somewhere, but where? Pluto46

Hi,

First post here.

The problem is that I am getting no sound from my left hand PC speaker. The right hand one is playing fine. I have unplugged them from the back of the tower and plugged them in again and this makes no difference, although I did hear some very, very low sound from the left speaker while the plug was halfway back in the tower.

I have tried another set of speakers and the same thing is happening with them, so I know the speakers themselves are not faulty.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Rich.
 

Answer:No Sound From Left Hand PC Speaker

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

Sounds like a faulty socket to me. Are you using onboard or a separate soundcard?

If onboard, then try a separate soundcard. If you`re already using a separate soundcard, then try the onboard sound.

If you are uncertain what you've done, first stop is a repair of Internet Explorer.Go to the Start Menu, Settings, Control Panel.Open Add/Remove Programs and find "Internet Explorer x.x and Tools" or something similar. The x.x is the version number.Select it and choose Add/Remove (or Remove or whatever it is).From the box that appears, choose Repair. Then wait. You will need to restart your computer after.This may not solve it, but if it's a missing file or setting, then this will pick it up.QuickHare

On my laptop with XP-PRO SP2 installed I can rename a file or folder in both the left and right explorer panes by slowly left clicking twice on the file or folder name (not the icon). I really like not having to right click and select rename from the context menu. However, I am unable to rename files and folders in the left explorer pane on either of my two desktop PCs, one with XP-PRO SP2 installed, the other with XP-PRO SP3 installed. Is there a Registry modification or a setting somewhere I could change on my two desktops to allow me to rename in the left pane by clicking the name twice. I am comfortable making Registry modifications and I am careful to make backups of the Registry keys and values before changing them. I have searched the internet using Google but have been unable to find the answer. I would greatly appreciate any information on this subject. Thanks.

Answer:Equium overheats on the left hand side

What is the model of laptop?

Does it also heat up when the laptop is turned off? Does the battery get hot as well? If the battery gets hot, I would take the laptop to an Authorised Service Center as soon as possible.

If its only getting hot when the laptop is turned on, the CPU may simply be overheating by dust buildup in the heatsink.

It's a Compaq system...did you check the Compaq support site?

From what I see, HP system have proprietary boot mechanisms...which isn't necessarily good for what may be the problem.

My guess is that the MBR is damaged, Black Screen (fixmbr) - http://support.microsoft.com/?scid=kb;en-us;314503. Using the fixmbr command from the XP Recovery Console of a MS Genuine XP CD...is the normal cure.

But you have a Compaq and I don't know if that command would be effective with your system.

I have recently had to format my C:\ Drive. I am running XP with service pack 2I also run a LAN to my RISC OS Computer. On setting this up the following problem which was on the PC was "cured" I am not sure how. However, on re booting the PC with or without the other computer the problem has returned. It is that the left hand panel of the file/folder window which displays the list of componants from "My Desktop" through to "recycle bin", has to be activated each time a file window is opened, by clicking on the "Folders" icon at the top of the window next to the "search" icon, furthermore, before the re installation of XP I was able to get a different set of icons down this left hand panel which included delete, change name etc., it was in about four sections which could be indempenantly opened of closed, I can no longer get this.

To attempt to clarify my last request. On clicking on the "C":\ icon one would expect to see a window containing athe files contained therein, this happens as expected, but on clicking the Folders Icon at the top of the window I get an Explorer type of "Tree", which is ok, but how can I get the (approx) 4 menus which contain various items such as delete, change name, plus many others. I did have this option before I had to re format and re install XP home and SP2. All the folder windows have the same problem.

Answer:File Window, left hand panel.

Have you tried toggling off the folder tree by pressing the Folders button? The folder tree and search facility just toggle on and off, replacing the default pane that you have described. If that doesn't work, then it's a much deeper problem and may require a repair or re-installation.

You can also turn it off remove the battery and power and hold down the power button 15 seconds then reattach power and power on. You can also go into BIOS (F10 setup) and restore default settings. If none of these works it is time for a new keyboard. They are fairly cheap and easy for the end user to install do it yourself. Post back if you want a link to a place to buy the keyboard and an instruction manual.

I spilled a little bit of milk and clean it off of the touch pad and now only the left hand side corner is working? How much would it be if i get it fixed? Or what can i do about it?

Answer:The touchpad only work on the left hand side

Sounds like the milk ran down into the contact surfaces. Tricky to fix yourself but it is not easy to suggest what others would charge for this operation - get some estimates.IMPORTANT - Please come back and let us know the outcome.

Hi:
I have a terrific HP Laptop which I purchased back in 2007 or 2008 and I rarely use it until last month, probably only once or twice a week with only a few hours.

Recently, I started to use HP Laptop on daily basis and found 'Search' at the left side of the pane/screen is missing/lost when clicking on 'Search' at the top. 'Search' at the address bar is perfectly OK tho'.

Is this issue related to not use it for a while, .... or how did it disappear?

Only seen is 'Google' ad. popping up upon clicking at 'Search' on the tool-bar of the top.

How can I rescue 'Search' at the left pane of screen?

Answer:Explorer.exe Left Pane Folder Tree

I had a look at your problem just after you posted eary this morning.Was not sure that i understood what is going on.Thought you had got your Windows Explorer.exe confused with internet explorer.exe.I also considered you had poss a bad update of IE5 as it appears to only have one choice in the add/remove programs for it.Considered at some stage you may have had a virus,but you don't mention anything about a virus scan or any error messages.I would suggest that your problem is wide spread through-out your pc and i think you have issues with your registry and corrupt files within the windows installation."I could also be very wrong" You could go for a quick re-install of windows 98 over itself and see if that cures the problem. It may give you a chance to keep all software programs that are installed and running properly,if that be the case.If it was me, i would not hesitate to reformat and do a repeat clean install of windows.Unless someone can come up with a better idea.

Windows 7 has apparently lost the ability to rename a folder in Explorer's left-hand (Navigation) pane by left-clicking a highlighted folder a 2nd time.

I know I can use F2 or right-click< Rename, or even rename in the right-hand pane, but I'm so used to doing it it the left-hand pane that I keep forgetting and trying to do it.

So is this intentional or is it a bug? I'd like to know so I can report/request it for a future SR. Although I have a feeling it's supposed to be this way and I'm wasting my time. Still.... it's always worth a try.

Hi

Well, there are many Satellite Pro M70. It?s a large series.
But for example Satellite Pro M70-110 has a PCMCIA Type II slot.
You can use different PCMICA card in this slot. But they must be compatible.
I assume in this slot you have found a plastic board. This is only for securing.

However, if you want to know more about your unit I would recommend reading the user manual which should be preinstalled on your notebook. There you will find very, very, very ;) useful informations.

I have a blue screen problem. Don't know if I should post it here or not but here is my problem.

I have windows 8. I updated to 8.1. So far so good. That is until this morning. I don't know if this is in fact a Windows 8.1 issue or if anyone has ever experienced this before. I turned on the computer. I got the 'Hi' message followed by the next message of windows getting my apps updated. I then had a blank blue screen with a 'start' in the top left hand corner and an arrow in a box pointing to the next page. On the next page I had APPS on the top left hand corner and a blank box. I typed in 'desk top' even tho' that is not an 'app' as such. It took me to a blank black page with a bin in the top left hand corner. It looked liked my machine had been completely wiped. This has never happened before and I tried to Google it but the answers given did not have any correlation to what happened to me...any clues anyone?" Sorry guys, I just reread my post....I forgot to say that my computer has been functioning as normal all day .. What I did was to turn it off and back on again and it worked as normal. The thing is, I don't now trust it and want to know what? why and is it something I need to address.

So, the left-hand bar is supposed to represent the desktop, and the contents on it, like in XP. I'd like to make it look more normal.

1. I want to remove: libraries, favorites, homegroup, and network. When you remove them, they just come back. Even if they aren't on the desktop. What gives?

2. I want to add My Documents above My Computer. And have My Computer defaulted to being opened (so I can see my drives.)

3. I would like the Recycling Bin to appear.

4. I would like "Desktop" to be atop the list, as that is how it makes the most sense to me.

Is there a way to re-enact this through Libraries? Or to actually make it happen? Or a different program? What's the deal though, the Windows 7 look is so... illogical and unorganized and cluttered.

It seems as if there is a lot of information, both old and new, about an issue with T500 keyboards. In November of 2009 I purchased a new T500 to replace my old but reliable TP600.  I configured my new T500 to order with Win 7 as well as the best graphics option and the 3.06 processor. Although many of the posts say that the keyboard issue has been resolved on the newer models, I don't think this is the case, as my T500 seems to have an odd 'non solid feeling' to the left side keys, particularly keys: r,e,w,q, f,d,s,a,v,c,x, and z. I am not sure if I should call customer support about this issue and is there a keyboard replacement available that is more consistent feeling like my old TP600? 













Solved!

Go to Solution.

Answer:New T500 with odd feel to left hand keyboard buttons.

 Well, I did not receive any replies back, but I did some more research, both here, in the forums, and on line, and here is what I learned. Evidently the T500's are now being built with a keyboard that has a vented backing plate with a lot of openings to release heat from the processor. Some in the forums have taken pictures of this new keyboard and referred to it as the 'Swiss cheese' design. In addition, to quell complaints, Lenovo has also added a  inside, to the left side of the T500 so that the keyboard will rest on this and eliminate some of the sag to the left side keys. Right out of the box, my T500 exhibited a bad sag and flex downward to the left side keys. Further inspection revealed that I had the new improved bracket and the vented or 'Swiss cheese' style keyboard. I found that the part number on my keyboard is 42T4034 with a FRU of 42T4066. I saw that some owners had modified their machine with felt pads placed in specific areas under the keyboard but I did not want to do that, being that this is a brand new 1,600 + machine. Further forum research revealed that some people were replacing their keyboard with the older, solid backing plate design from the T61 which is FRU 42T3209. I called Lenovo tec support and spoke with an employee. I described the problem with the left side keyboard flex and the employee insisted that this issue was 'normal' and that all he could do was send me another 42T4066 keyboard which would be the same.

On startup the icons at first appear where they were when the PC was shut down, but then they all leap over into a random order on the left. I can see the icons being re-initialised several times on screen during the startup procedure (i.e. they go to generic icons then gradually reinstate the real icons).Anyone know what might be causing these multiple icon loads, and particualrly what might be causing the annoying resetting to the left-hand side?

My daughter was using my MSI laptop and when she tried to start the computer all that came up was a black screen with the cursor in the upper left corner. She selected the restore option which came up because the other options would not do anything.

Is there any possible way to recover my files, pics, etc. or is it just gone now? I'm really upset because I had five years of photos of my grandchildren. =(

Any help at all is greatly appreciated.

I was in the process of trying video cards out on my system and realized later that the sound on my left hand side is not there anymore.  I have looked in the case and I can't see where I've undone any type of header or anything, but the sound seems to be getting less and less (possibly on the right hand side)?  Could I have possibly knocked something lose, or is this something that's a common occurance with this model(s)?  If I was looking for a replacement, I had thought of one of the Creative Sound Blaster audio cards.. but as I'm disabled I would just love to get the onboard sound working again without spending any money!  If I do have to go the sound card route, any suggestions?  Also (and I'm dating myself here..lol) do you need to connect a header from the dvd drive to the sound card anymore or is that handled by the Serial ATA connection?     Thank you for your time and God Bless!             Sincerely,                  x0mage

HelloI have a staff member who is having difficulty in getting her margins on her emails to move to the right by about 1".  She is using MS Outlook (I have MS O/L Express so it is a different interface).  Any suggestions 'cos when she prints off her email for filing - when hole punched, it takes out some of the email. Thanks!

Hi. My problem is slightly different but along the same lines? When I open Explorer, Favorites is displayed at the top of the left column, as desired. However, not all of the folders I have designated for Favoriates is displayed in the left column. When I left click on the word "Favorites," then in the right column the entire list of Favorites folders does display. (Meaning: there's a list of nine folders on the right side, but back in the left column under Favorites only seven are displayed.)

I've tried all of the solutions described above and none fixes this problem. If I try to drag a folder from Right to Left, two things happen: (A) A copy of that folder is created on the right side (so I'll see the original and a version with "(2)" after the name; and (B) on the left side, one of the folders that used to be in Favorites no longer displays.

I don't know why a copy is made on the Right, but the action on the Left leads me to believe that somehow the left column Favorites is set to display no more than seven (7) items, but I can't find where to change that setting.

ANy ideas out there?

Answer:Favorites in left pane does not display all Favorite folders

Hello Kell, and welcome to Seven Forums.

As a test, open your C:\Users\(user-name)\Links folder, and see what you have for shortcuts there. If they are all there, then cut and paste them to your desktop to empty the folder, then copy them back to see if they appear in the navigation pane under Favorites afterwards.

If that doesn't help, then try the tutorial below along with the yellow TIP box if needed.

Hope this helps,

OK I'm probably repeating a topic but maybe someone can lead me to a correct answer. I would like to change my left pane background and the left pane background of my folders individualy and the main background in all folders! I've used dodgey programs before that have caused head aches. I have used "Restorator 2007 to change icons and backgrounds before, so any advice would be helpful heres a screen shot:

Answer:How to change left pane BG in start menu and all folders

Welcome to the Seven Forums

It looks like you are using a third-party custom theme post a link to it and I can give you the image number for the left side of the start menu.
The backgrounds for the Windows Explorer on the left side and the main window are fill colors and the only way I know how to change that is to use Ave's Windows7 Style Builder

The left side of the control panel are Bitmaps #632 and 633 in the shell32.dll in both C:\Windows\System32 and C:\Windows\SysWOW64 after editing(put copies on your desktop and edit them did not get them mixed up) you will need to properly change a system file you need to take ownership give yourself permission and rename the old file and then copy in the new one look at Post #6 of this thread will tell you how to do it Basic Networking Information

Hi Guys!
Sorry if this was posted already, really busy!

Well this is my problem...i have a couple of pcs with windows xp, and i want to disable the windows explorer view, like explore all users by right clicking on the start menu orb. Or simply as when opening the file explorer, never having the left pane with the file list tree, so that no program can activate this view...

I have older people working in this company and sometimes they just dont let go of the left click on the mouse, making them moving files they are not supposed to.

We use a access database that views its contents (like docs,pics,gifs) always with this left pane with tree listing of all the folders...

I would be gratefull for this solution...

This is something that's been bothering me since I upgraded this Dell XPS8700 to windows 10 some two weeks or more ago.

The left pane in File Explorer seems to duplicate my drive letters and info other than what's under the entry "This PC".

If I look down the list, starting just below the Libraries folder, the drive letters are repeated but not all of them.

Like I have under This PC : C: , DVDRW D:, E:, F: , a card reader, H,L,K, external drives L:, another card reader letter M:, a second external drive N:, followed by some NAS folders I have mapped, V, W, X. and Y.

Down past the Libraries folder are again: H, L, N, M, K, and I, then Network etc, Homegroup etc.

Hard to describe, I could do a screen shot and post it if that would help see it.

How and why are all these drive letters getting into this tree twice? Anyone?

TIA - Gene

My problem is how the left window reacts when I select a folder.

If I have a long list of folders in the left window and I click on the small arrow to the left of a folder, it is supposed to show the list of sub-folders that are in the selected folder.

It does but here is my problem. Lets say the folder that I select is in the middle of the left window. When I click on the small arrow, Windows Explorer shifts the folder list down so that the selected folder is near the bottom of the window. Generally I can only see one of the sub-folders. And then I have to use the slider to move the selected folder up so I can see more than one sub-folder.

I wish it would leave the folder where it was and show as many sub-folders as possible underneath the selected folder. I hope this explanation makes sense.

Answer:The Navigation Pane on the left side of Windows Explorer

I tried it on my Computer and the on clicking the arrow it moves up as it should instead of going down. Please try out the following steps to correct the problem.

1. Restore the folder to default as follows and check if that helped:

a. Open windows explorer
b. Click on Organize
c. Select folder and search option from the list
d. Select General tab, and select “Restore Default”

2. Run an online scanner to check any malware or virus activity. The link that will help you to run a free scan on the computer is Windows Live OneCare

3. If the above steps do not help then run the SFC (System File Checker) scan on the computer to fix the system file errors on the computer. To run SFC scan, follow the steps below:

a. Click Start ,
b. Click All Programs ,
c. Click Accessories , right-click Command Prompt ,
d. And then click Run as administrator.
e. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Allow or Continue.
f. At the prompt, type sfc /scannow and hit enter. Once the scan is complete, restart the computer for the changes to take effect.

Please tell if this was of any use.

I am working on my mothers computer. Usually when you open Add Remove Programs from the Control Panel, on the left hand side you will see 4 separate "icons" 1) Change or Remove Programs 2) Add New Programs 3) Add/Remove Windows Components 4) Set Program Access and Defaults. When I open my mothers only the Set Program Access and Defaults Icon is showing. Can anyone help me fix this?
