[How to] Enter Full Screen Mode in Microsoft Edge (and ANY Windows Store App)

Question: [How to] Enter Full Screen Mode in Microsoft Edge (and ANY Windows Store App)

Came across this by accident after just watching a video. Haven't seen any post about it on this forums so, here it is. You simply press the following combination of keyboard keys, and Edge, or any other Windows Store application instantly enters full-screen mode:Ctrl + Win + Enter
Press the same combination of keyboard keys to exit full-screen mode, or hover you mouse pointer to the top right corner of your screen and click the exit full-screen button.
Not sure why this handy feature isn't readily accessible via a shortcut in Edge's overflow menu, but that's typical of microsoft...

Preferred Solution: [How to] Enter Full Screen Mode in Microsoft Edge (and ANY Windows Store App)

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.)

I used .requestFullScreen() to view an element in full screen mode but the element is not displayed correctly, so I would like to check for any problems in the DOM. However, I could not find open devtools in full screen mode. Is there any way to check the DOM of the page in full screen mode?

Simply select the Settings and more menu and click the ?Full screen? arrows icon, or press ?F11? on your keyboard. Full screen mode hides things like the address bar and other items from view so you can focus on your content.

To exit full screen mode, move your mouse near top of the screen or swipe down with your finger and select the ?restore? icon in the top-right, or press ?F11? again.

I think there is a mode on windows xp you can enter so games such as world of warcraft wont' run in full screen. I don't know how to access this mode thouhg, but would like to because without eveyrthing in full screen it will use less of my computers resources and this way my computer won't freeze up. Can anyone tell me how to enter this mode?
 

Answer:How to enter a mode where things don't appear in full screen

Well, I'm only guessing, but I think it depends on the game, not on Windows, whether or not you can play it in windowed mode.

Also, I don't think you would gain much with it. Once I tried playing a game in window mode. When I set it up, it warned me to think over twice, because in window mode I possibly will experience performance problems, glitches, etc., and that full screen is better.
Usually games use the same resolution in full screen as in window mode, so, I think, it requires the same computing performance. It's seems only logical that if Windows has to update the desktop besides the game screen, it consumes more resources than the game screen alone.

Performance problems are generally addressed by expanding RAM, defragging HDD, cleaning the OS from virus/Spyware, etc. But someone with expertise might know better.

Hi,

I'm having a problem with BF2 where the game will crash with a
"BF2.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close."
error, right after the logo screen. The game doesn't enter full screen mode.

The first time I saw this error was when I was playing around with BattleRecorder (BF2's own recording engine), and I tried to launch a movie in BattleLauncher. This throws the error described above and I can't run BF2 again without getting the error until the computer is RESTARTED (no logoff and back on). I searched for a way to make Battlerecorder work and I gave up. But, the problem now seems to occur when Battlefield 2 is run for a second time. For example, if I turn on the computer, run BF2, play, close BF2, and try to play again without a restart, it crashes. I tried multiple things to fix this problem, and I eventually ended up downgrading my nvidia drivers to 84.21 (i was running 84.25 beta).

I THOUGHT this fixed the problem, but I must have only tried to open the game once when I went and downgraded the drivers, because it still happens. The only things I have installed recently are xfire, and I remember that that program threw me the error whenever I clicked somewhere inside the program to launch BF2 (xfire has a feature to launch bf2 for you so you can play with a friend). I suppose I should uninstall xfire... I'll try that now.

Answer:Enter The Matrix - Full Screen Mode Not Found

I don't know if your system will be able to handle ETM, because it has integrated video. But hey, I guess it's worth a shot.

First, get the latest drivers for your video here.

Before you play, make sure you close all background applications. Also, you might as well do a spyware check using something like Ad-Aware.
The game installed correctly, right?

Hi there
Anybody running W8.1 in UNITY mode -- that WRETCHED Store app always starts in FULL SCREEN - so I can't get to desktop.

I never did like these Stinking "Store" things -- and why it even STARTS when I don't want the app at all is beyond me -- also you can't seem to un-install it -- I've removed from Taskbar and Start menu - no avail.

(Running Windows 8.1 on a colleagues Mac -- where I spotted the problem -- however it occurs also if you are running on PC's as well).

This is WINDOWS 8.1 Update 1.

Cheers

Answer:I HATE Store app- Unity mode always starts in FULL SCREEN

did you try this? Store - Enable or Disable in Windows 8

I'm not using Unity (and haven't opened store for months either intentionally or automatically) but it might help. Luckily for me after unpinning it from the taskbar it was never seen again.

Worth a try I guess.

"Full of" may be a little strong (maybe not).
But you have to be careful where ever you shop. There is a post over at the JRiver Media Center forum about a guy RAMESH NAGALLA who is selling JRiver for $3.99 - and bunch of other programs that he doesn't own. Apparently he has a lot of software for sale (JRiver, Zoom Player, Tomb Raider, etc.) that he doesn't have licensing agreement for.
I bet it would be tough to get refund from this guy.

-here's an article on the situation (old but relevant):

Microsoft need to get tougher on this. BTW - Apple charges $100 year to put apps on their store (making less like a crook will make a profit before he/she is caught and kicked off the site).

Hi guys!

I'm having this problem since yesterday, and I can't find anyone with the same problem.
I have this problem where no microsoft applications work. I can't open Edge, Windows Store or Photos app. When I want to open them, there is absolutely 0 response. No error-message, nothing! When I observe the task manager while starting these apps, they DO appear for like, 1 second. They immediately disappear though.
I don't know what the issue is. I have this problem since I installed the application: SaferVPN (I already uninstalled it).
Ou yea, my Windows search doesn't work either. No reaction from the system at all.

I already tried running sfc /scannow.
My computer is up to date.
There were no windows updates involved at the point of time where the problem occurred.
I tried restarting windows several times.

I run Windows 10 for quite a long time now. Also, when I want to add a Microsoft Account, it give no response either. (I think thats because it usually opens a small Edge Browser Windows for entering the credentials.

Can you guys please help me? I usually find my solutions in already existing forums, but I didn't find anyone who had the same problem as me (perhaps I didn't google the right thing and couldn't find it because of that.)

Thanks for anything in advance.

Hi, I bought a Lenovo Thinkpad Edge E320 with 128GB SSD but without OS. I installed Windows 7 and ubuntu and had issues with dual booting because of the UEFI. So I decided to change from UEFI to legacy mode in bios. After that I cann't enter BIOS any longer. If I press F1 on start I get "Entering BIOS Setup" but the BIOS doesn't open instead immediatly Windows starts. The same with F12 to select the boot drive selection the message appears but the menu doesn't open instead Windows starts. How can I enter again the BIOS or reset the options? I tried BIOS Update with BOOT Cd from Lenovo support site but it didn't help. Thank you for advice Best regards bubbas

Answer:Edge E320, can't enter bios after changing from uefi to legacy mode

Hi bubbas and welcome to the Community,
 
This is a long shot, but take out the hard drive, the battery and unplug the ac adapter and hold the power button down for about 15 seconds.
 
Then plug in just the ac adapter without the battery or hard drive and start the machine and see if you can get into the bios.
 
If you can, reload the defaults and reboot.  See if you can get in again and you might want to check the F12 to see if that works.

Hey guys,

Upon trying to turn my comp on, I get the blue screen and cant start up, on restart it lets me in safe mode. The problem seemed to start when I had a redirect malware. I downloaded both Malware Bytes and AdAware to try and fix it. Once Adaware installed, it went to blue screen and since then i can only enter in safe mode. I did some research and found that having 2 adware programs may cause this problem, so i unsinstalled both from safe mode. No luck.

I'm out of ideas, so here are my logs can someone help me? Otherwise it looks like I'm going to have to take it into a store and have it fixed for a huge fee, or reboot windows. I have no system restores

EDIT: this is what the blue screen says:

Hello everyone.

I've had great success with computer problems here in the past and am hoping someone can help me out again. I've read through some of the 'booting to black screen' posts on here, and it seems like I need a Windows XP recovery disk, which I do not have.

A little bit of info on my problem:

I was given a Gateway desktop by a friend when it stopped working for her and she bought a new one rather than dealing with it. She is not a computer person at all, and could only tell me that it stopped working, no other specifics. When I try to boot the computer, the Gateway screen comes on for a second or two, then it goes straight to black screen. I've tried hitting F2 or F8 or F10, but nothing happens. My friend says that she doesn't think that the computer came with a recovery disk, or if it did, she doesn't have it any longer.

Is there anything else I can try, or do I have to get my hands on a Windows XP disk? I don't think I know anyone who has one, so is there anywhere that I could get one online?

Thanks in advance,
~MR

Hello there! I purchased and upgraded to Microsoft Windows 10! Finally, right?

But anyways, I've spent the last few days customizing all my options and settings that I had back on Windows 8.1. Takes hours to do all that. Got all my settings saved as text with directions. Anyways, I've ran into a problem that seems difficult to fix. My version of Windows 10 is the Anniversary Edition, for what I've read and when I've downloaded it.

So there are two icons in the Taskbar that cannot seem to get unpinned; Microsoft Edge & Store. I right click on them, yet there is no unpin option (check the attached image). Is there any other workaround yet for removing those two icons at all? Some Registry edit or something?

Answer:Cannot Unpin Microsoft Edge & Store Icons From The Taskbar

I left the Store but did Unpin Edge from Taskbar on my Win10 Pro. I did put Internet Explorer on so wonder if that makes a difference? Also have Firefox and SeaMonkey there.

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.

Hello,
I have been using Windows 10 for just over a year (a recent convert from mac OS). i hope you guys can help me out.

I recently got infected with 3 trojans. Bitdefender picked them, quarantined them but after every reboot they came back. So I downloaded Malwarebytes which not only quarantined them effectively but also identified several more that bitdefender had not picked up. Now every thing is fine except for the following issues:

I cannot log on to microsoft account, cannot open store, use cortana, edge does not open, and weather app and Xbox do not open. I gave microsoft remote access but after several hours they came to the conclusion that system restore is the only option. Id like to avoid that since then I will loose my MS Office for which i dont have the original key anymore.

I have myself tried almost every trick mentioned on the internet - powershell, sfc/scannow but to no avail. If I create amother user, I can logon to my microsoft account from settings but store, edge, cortana, weather, xbox still do not open. Disabling malewarebytes, bitdefender or Zonealarm firewall do not help either.

I thought id post the Malewarebytes quarantine file here to see which registry key is causing this. I deleted the quarantined files so unfortunately cannot restore. Please any help will be appreciated. Thanks

Hi mab5555 and welcome to Ten Forums.

Maybe some expert will comment on that infections later. But with mess like this clean install is almost always best solution.
If Office key is only drawback, try Speccy or Belarc advisor they usually provide original keys of installed software.

One thing I don't quite get... System restore is like system backup and Office should stay intact, but it is difficult to predict exact time of infection and pick correct restore point.

Other possible solution is so called inplace upgrade (tutorial link). Download ISO of Windows 10 from MS site and let the setup run. ISO should be of the same language as your current install.

If you want to be able to restore your current Windows install (if anything get lost) make a system backup with Macrium reflect free.

Hi,I just got a new MCE PC. I can watch TV on the monitor in a window or full screen. When I toggle to watch on the TV set, I can see all my windows and watch the TV in one window. When I go full screen with the TV all I get is a black screen. If I then hit ctl-alt-delete, it switches back to desktop, shows task manager for a couple of secinds then switches to full screen TV BUT with the toolbar across the bottom, so apart from being annoying, I can't change the channels as Media Centre isn't the selected window.Help pleaseDavid

Hello tech,
It's easter, so I realise some helpers might be away and help might be a bit slow as well as answers from me until Tuesday, lol.

I got a problem, driving me up the wall for four days now.
I use a developer program to make executables (hobby of mine saves me going troppo) called Clarion, it works OK, I made a DOSable program with it, it works OK.

Once I could open to full size DOS screen by pressing the Alt+Enter keys and it would stay open until I was finished with it, then I could revert back to a small screen by pressing Alt+Enter keys again.

Now if I press Alt+Enter keys the DOS screen appears, but it stays open in full screen for a couple of seconds then automatically closes back to the usual small screen.

I have tried right clicking on the icon, properties, screen and putting a dot in the full size option, but this does not work.

I have scanned my PC for viruses etc but no joy there.
I have Dialup only, so don't ask me to do a Panda or Trend scan as they drop you if you no got broadband.

I'm using XP pro, 512meg ram, using a Gigabyte MB, and Nivida video card.
XP working OK-dokie, sound ok-dokie, video ok-dokie, screen to DOS wonkie.
OK what do I do now
 

Answer:I press Alt+Enter DOS screen.opens 2 full screen then go small in a couple of seconds

You can download PowerCmd and use CTRL+ENTER to test its full screen mode.

All of a sudden (like, these things don't happen s-l-o-w-l-y!!) for no reason I can imagine, windows are not opening in the way I am used to. I can drag the edges to stretch them out but this is kind of a nuisance, and if I click on the little maximize button - top right - I can't move the open window around. I checked the Tools menus but nothing there seems to fit. Any suggestions? What to do? Why this would happen? Thanks.
 

Answer:Windows not opening in full screen mode

Heh, if you maximize your window using the upper right boxes, you are not supposed to be able to move it around.

About the windows opening not maximized all the way. This used to happen to me, but somehow fixed it self.

Can you be more specific on what windows dont open all the way? IE windows, or system windows; for example, Control Panel.

hi there
hope i can make myself understandable.

For 2 weeks i suddenly have this problem.

whenever i open up something, it comes up in Full Screen Mode, and not
a smaller window like normal.

If it is a new letter in outlook, Alt-ctrl-del (window task manager), or
pages within a internet site. "in the old days" a new page would open op in ex. Half page size (i know you can decide the size).
but now everything opens up in Full Screen (maximize size), so for me to return to the original page, i have to press the bar in the toolbar in the buttom.
If it would open up in minimize size, but the whole screen, then i can make it smaller, and after a few times, it will automatically opens up in this size.
but i don't have this option anymore.

i have tried to change all kinds of options, but nothing helps.

can anyone help??

have a nice weekend

Answer:windows opens up in Full Screen mode!

Hi

If you navigate to any such program that opens in full size in the Start Menu.. right-click>properties> under the "shortcut" tab>Run .. does it say normal window?

Unless someone changed that a piece of software will open in a normal window. If you resize it by r.clicking in the top left corner and choosing the size, then close the window.. the next time it starts it should be in the size you last chose. UNless, you've changed the options for the software, in its options/properties/preferences whatever is there, to open in full mode. Only a little bit of playing around will lead you to where.

Next time it opens in full screen, hit F11 and see if that changes it back down. Close the software and it should reopen in the same size you left it last.

All -- any help you can provide would be appreciated. I do not have any desire to pay Lenovo $100 to walk me through the steps of recovering the system.

I have a lenovo ideapad y560 0646 - windows 7 64 bit.

Each time I start the laptop, I get the following error (after the introductory language that says - we're killing the startup to protect you, really, trust us ):

-- ntfs.sys

Then there's the other boilerplate language that it's not microsoft but you, really --

followed by

*** stop: 0x00000050 (0xFFFFF98001680000, 0x0000000000000000, 0xFFFFF8801c36344, 0x0000000000000000)

*** ntfs.sys - Address FFFFF88001c36344 base at FFFFF88001c2B000, DateStamp 4a5bc14f

If you can help by pointing to something describing the steps to restore the system, that would be great. Lenovo seems to think all hardware is fine but that the operating system is corrupted.

In short, I was using an air card connected to a PC Card Adapter - inserted in the laptop. Hit hibernate and quickly, without thinking, removed the PC Card Adapter from the laptop. Later, when hitting power on, the blue screen appeared and has not left.

I have tried to enter via safe mode, and that does not work.

There's extensive data on the hard drive that I need to take all practical steps to preserve before blowing it up.

Thanks,

Answer:Blue Screen - Cannot Enter Safe Mode or Any Other Mode

Welcome to SF! davidsawyer

Have you tried reinstalling the pc card adapter and then starting up to see if you can then safely remove it?

As far as the error message itself, "Stop 0x0000007E" or "Stop 0x00000050" Stop error message in Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2 MS has a fix available at the page there for this type of error.

Hi;

Purchased a new PC running Vista 32-bit and when I use the Media Center app, I can't
figure out how to get DVD's, TV, etc into "FULL-SCREEN MODE"? I seem to recall it ordinarily
has an option where you can toggle back and forth between full and reduced screen sizes,

to Media Player- not Medis Center.

Any suggestions would be genuinely appreciated- thanks!

Normally when any game is played in full screen mode, the taskbar is hidden; this has been Windows behaviour for forever. Yesterday I update my Surface Pro 3 with the anniversary edition. Today I played 2 seperate games, and now both will show the taskbar over their screen which, if clicked on, hides the game; in affect, the game now acts as a window which is not the same size as the desktop. Has anyone else noticed this change?

P.

I buy Lenovo thinkpad edge E531 few months back and initially, I noticed that laptop becomes unresponsive if I leave it in idle state and mouce pointer can move on screen but laptop becomes unresponsive. Then I started locking screen in order to avoid this situation. However since last week, laptop becomes unreponsive even in lock screen. I can not do any thing except hovering mouce pointer. I am annoyed. I am suspicious that may be some driver is cretaing this trouble. Does anyone has any clue. Thanks

Answer:Think pad edge E531 becomes unresponsive in idle mode or lock screen mode.

Hi Ahmadbilal,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
We understood that your query is about system not starting up after idle mode on ThinkPad Edge E531.
 
Make sure the Windows and Lenovo drivers are up to date too.
Please download ThinkVantage System update application from Lenovo driver link and update all the drivers.
 
Try clean boot to find out which program is causing your pc running slowly or unresponsive
Instruction here:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/310353
 
Basically you have to disable all startup items and NONE-Windows services through msconfig then restart your pc then put it back to sleep or idle mode and see if the problem is solved?
Hope this helps. 
 
Best regards,

Hemanth Kumar

In Apps downloaded from the Windows Store (such as Words With Friends or a million other apps - not regular 'Windows Applications' such as Photoshop or something), they run in a special 'shell' that is obviously controlled by the OS. There are now 4 buttons in the top right (Close | Max/Restore | Minimize | Full Screen - from right to left). All the normal windows shortcuts work for all the known buttons but none of the possible/expected key combinations work for the 'Full Screen' button (such as ALT+ENTER or WINDOWS+UP several times). The button looks like two arrows pointing outward at a 45? angle. If you ARE in full screen, they look the same but the arrows point inward.

I don't know if I can post a link but here's the button I'm talking about https://i.imgur.com/YQc083l.png (just an Imgur link to YQc083l.png).

Answer:Shortcut key combination for 'Full Screen' button in Store Apps?

Unfortunately it's impossible to Google a search phrase that includes 'Windows' 'Shortcut key' 'Full Screen' or the like without returning a flood of pages that are just the normal shortcut keys that I already know. If I knew what to call that 'shell' that Apps from the Store run in, I might be able to narrow it down but they appear to be exe files and don't fire up a separate process when they launch. Any info on what that process is called that runs Windows Apps from the Windows Store may assist in my Google-foo. Of course, MS may not have any shortcut key for that 'Full Screen' function - there doesn't appear to be any 'tooltip text' when you mouse over the button in the image I posted originally.

I've got an HP laptop (dv6568se) and lately it has been having issues going into sleep mode. I close the lid, but it remains on and doesn't go to sleep.

After reading numerous forums, i can?t seem to find a solution, the only thing i could fix was entering in the BIOS again, by removing the "BIOS battery" and plug it in again. After this, windows shows up again the load screen, he also shows the log in screen, but after the login screen i only get a Black Screen where i can only see the mouse pointer.

I also notice that if i press Ctrl+Alt+Del, i can get into task manager, i can also bring up command prompt running it through the task manager, but my desktop is completely dark/gone......

It's happening! Good news for Edge users, you can now install our extension and use your new favorite browser ad-free.

Last year Microsoft introduced support for third-party extensions in its newcomer, the Edge browser. We have been waiting for that moment, so we immediately started to develop extension specifically for the new browser. Finally, we are pleased to introduce you the Adguard for Edge, which is already available on Windows Store.Click to expand...


Restrictions

OS: Windows 10

Adguard won't work in InPrivate, as this mode doesn't yet support third-party extensions.

Extension does not support the integration mode. This means that it won't work alongside with the full-fledged Adguard program.
We want to thank Microsoft for making it possible to provide Edge users with Adguard protection! Particularly we want to thank the Edge team, it was great and easy to work with them. They provided us an invaluable assistance, responding quickly to changes during development. We call on all developers to follow us and create more cool extensions for Windows Store!

So here we are on Windows Store. Currently, only a few extensions authorized by MS appeared on Windows store. And we are proud that we are among the chosen ones Click to expand...

Hello, I have recently just upgraded to Windows 10 from a Windows 8.1 build (and did not do a clean install) and I have recently been experiencing some bugs.

Firstly, I am unable to download any apps from the Windows App Store. I have tried many different apps but I always get error 0x80070002. This only seems to occur when I use my Microsoft Account and link it to my PC. When I tried downloading apps using my Microsoft account for the store but a local account for the PC, they installed perfectly fine. I am using a third-party firewall, McAfee Security Center which I have disabled temporarily but the issue still occurs. I have tried several solutions on the Internet such as using WSReset.exe, deleting Download and DataStore in SoftwareDistribution in the Windows folder, using Windows FixIt (which detected a service registration error and claimed to have fixed it, although whenever I run it again this same error pops up with it saying it fixed it again.) and even reregistering the program (which didn't work either).

The other issue I am having is that when I was using sfc.exe /scannow in the Adminstrator Command Prompt to check for problems, it detected a problem of some sort of image in Microsoft Edge. I have used this command before on my previous operating system and it didn't detect anything. It also said that it failed to repair it and I have the log which is attached. I, personally, don't notice any problem with Microsoft Edge but apparently there is on... Read more

Hi,

I'm just put windows 7 on my friends laptop, all went well until I tried to install the graphics drivers for card nvidia geforce 8600M......then it just boots up with a mostly blank screen with lines coming down, the sound is muted but i think it is booting up into windows as the screen goes lighter after a while.

I've tried everything to get into safe mode or repair but can't......once it did let me into repair (no idea how as have tried everything since and it won't again) so i know it is okay as the screen was fine whilst in repair mode - I used system restore but didn't go back far enough and have just got the same problem now.

I don't have a windows disk, have made a usb bootable repair disk but can't access bios to change the boot order.

I'm guessing the only option is to get hold of or make a windows 7 disk but I really need to get it working tonight if at all possible so would be really grateful if anyone knows of anything else I can try.

I don't understand how/why it let me get into repair mode once but not since.....am wondering if i pressed something different.......have tried f1, f2, f8, del, esc, tapping space bar........none of which give any visible change just the lines down the screen.

Many thanks!

Answer:Updated graphics drivers - can't see screen or enter safe mode etc

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

You don't necessarily need to get into the BIOS to boot from your DVD drive.

Insert your repair disc then tap the one-time boot key for the computer, which should enable the boot menu.

Select the USB drive then press Enter and choose Last Known Good Configuration in the Windows Recovery Environment.

You haven't stated the computer manufacturer, but their support site should explain which key you need to tap to bring up the boot menu.

So I'm pretty sure I killed the computer, but as it's my mother's and not mine (and I've expanded any knowledge of computers I have trying to fix it) I'm turning outwards for help.

It's a Compaq Presario hard drive and screen
Windows XP professional
160 GB hard drive
512 MB memory
3400+ AMD Athlon tm 62 Processor
Integrated NVIDIA GeForce 6150 LE.

I know what the problem is, I had been putting Sims on my computer and it wasn't recognizing the DirectX. Without thinking how it would clearly affect my computer, I searched until I found a source telling me to fix it, I needed to check the driver. Well, I went to add a driver for the GeForce card and it crashed. Onto the blue screen with the STOP: 0x0000007E.
Here's the real problem. I can't get onto the computer to fix it. It goes straight to the blue screen when I restart. I've tried starting it in Safe Mode and every other option it's given me, and it merely goes straight to the blue screen. I've even tried pressing F10 at start up in order to do a system recovery but it doesn't work. I read that the Recovery Console may help me get to the place I need to be to make changes to fix it, but the computer was bought from a friend of my sisters, and the XP software disk wasn't included in what my mother was given.

So, in trying to fix this myself before going to pay for help, I'm asking you guys. Any ideas?
 

Answer:Blue Screen, can't enter safe mode, don't have the disks for recovery

I want to make this clear - I'm not complaining about a specific category of extensions or recommending them as it is against the rules.

However if you search for "ublock origin" in the store it finds nothing.



It obviously does exist as the link is mentioned by every Windows website in the world (and it works) so why is the store blocking it?




If they censor this then what else?

Answer:Windows Store censoring Edge extensions?

Not sure what Microsoft Store you are querying, but it looks like the extension is located on the New Zealand MS Store.

For the last two years I have used Windows XP with two monitors: Primary screen is a Samsung and the second a Fujitsu/Siemens 17" flat screen monitor. When the latter died recently I replaced it with a 17" flat screen Dell E172FP monitor.On booting up, the Dell duplicates all the setup screens and eventually shows the Windows logo. However when the primary Samsung screen asks for the Windows login details, the Dell goes into power saving mode and refuses to come back to life. As the early screen displays are perfect I doubt that solutions involving replacing capacitors etc are relevant to my setup. Can anyone suggest a solution please?

Answer:Secondary monitor enter Power Saving Mode at XP login screen

OK - sounds like since you swapped the monitor the display adapter needs to extend or duplicate to your new monitor. Have you checked your display settings in XP? Although it should have changed, you may need to re-extend or tell Windows that you want to duplicate to that monitor (I am assuming extend).Here is a link on how to use Windows to configure your second monitor: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/307873 www.standby-it.com

Windows 9 will reportedly have new activation methods that will tie the OS more closely with a specific PC

Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) will unveil Windows 9 this fall, claims notorious Russian leaker WZor, who has a pretty good track record. In a Russian language post on Ru-Board, the leaker said that the upcoming update to Windows 8 will be the last major overhaul of the existing OS. Microsoft is expected to launch the Windows 8 Update 2 in August.

Windows 9 to have new activation methods

WZor claimed that Microsoft will back the launch of Windows 9 with heavy advertising blitzkrieg and a new distribution method. The new activation methods will tie a copy of Windows 9 more closely with a specific PC. It will require the user to log in to Microsoft Store, and users won’t be given an activation key. Talking about Windows 8, WZor said that there will be new updates after the Update 2 due next month. But no new features will be added to it.

Motivation behind the new activation method is “problems in China.” The world’s most populous country recently banned Windows 8. Notably, a couple of weeks ago, WZor claimed that Microsoft may announce Windows 9 at its Worldwide Partner Conference, which begins July 13 in Washington D.C. That claim was missing in the latest report, but WZor reassured us that the new OS will be launched this fall. However, he only talked about the announcement, without revealing whether it will be a Developer... Read more

Answer:Microsoft to Force Microsoft Store Account to Activate Windows 9

Not sure how logging into the store ties the OS more specifically to a computer. Doesn't seem right at all. However, if it is only logging onto the Microsoft Store to activate, and not forcing a Microsoft account to use the computer, I can see that being okay. As long as the local account continues to be an option, things will be fine. If I'm forced to use a Microsoft account to use my computer... I'll stay on 8.1. And then maybe move to Linux.

Transformation of UI is already being done in 8.1 Update 1. No surprise that it would be further enhanced.

Launch of 9 wouldn't put an end to 8. And let's face it, Microsoft never lost its dominance on the desktop market. There is nothing for them to re-establish here. The only thing they need to establish is a stronger presence in the mobile market.

Hi guys.

When I start a command prompt, and change to full screen mode, it automatically chooses 720x400 @ 70Hz. How do I change this please? It's not an ideal mode for my flat-screen monitor which has a native resolution of 1280x1024 - so for a DOS prompt in Full Screen mode a better resolution if it's available would be 640x512 or 1280x1024... so that each pixel is used a whole number of times. With 720x400 I get fuzzy...sharp...fuzzy...sharp...

Cheers

Hi, throughout the past week, I have been having a problem when I attempt to exit from any full screen application. Most of the time, the screen goes completely black, except for the mouse cursor. All inputs are responsive, and I am able to restart the computer using the keyboard, which fixes the problem. The problem occurs if full screen mode is interrupted in any manner(close, restore, minimize, etc.). I am planning to perform a series of tests tonight in an attempt to determine whether the problem is software or hardware related. In the mean time, I was hoping that someone here would have had experience with this manner of problem in the past. Last, but not least, here are the afflicted system's specifications:

AMD Athlon XP 2800+ processor
Biostar M7NCD Ultra motherboard w/ NVidia NForce 2 chipset
ATI Radeon 9800 Pro(Sapphire)
512 MB PC3200 RAM(2*256 dual channel)
Other system specifications available upon request

Thank you for taking the time to read this.

The computer is a clone that I just built. It is running Windows 98 SE and Office 97. Here is my hardware specs:

1.DFI AK75-EC Rev. A Motherboard with VIA Apollo KT133A chipset
2.AMD Duron 850MHz processor

I have changed the resolution from 640 x 480 to 1280 x 1024 and all settings in between. I have also changed the amount of colors used from 256 colors to 32 bit. The only thing that has worked so far was replacing the video card with a PCI card, but it can't do 1024 x 768 resolution with 16 bit color. I know it is not the monitor because I can use a different machine with this monitor and it works like a champion
