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?

My mom was surfing the web regarding the Golden Globes and fell victim to some website that spawned an annoying webpage that was playing some message about "Your machine has been infected and call this number blah! blah!" She did not click any button and I navigated her over the phone to kill the task in Task Manager.
The problem is that when she launches the browser Edge goes back to that page.
Simple solution, I had disconnect her disable wireless and then restart the browser. Then had her kill her tabs one by one followed by clearing cookies, history etc. Then we ran a malware scan and virus scan (good thing she is retired because that took forever). Nothing was found and the page is gone. We enabled Wi-Fi and everything was running again and she can once again catch up on her gossip.
This leads me to my question. Is there a command line parameter you can pass to Edge to have is start without tabs reopening? I have found various websites that show how to modifying the registry -- something that I wish to avoid.
Any other options available so should this happen again I can quickly dispatch of the issue?

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.

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...

I finally learned somewhere on this forum how to have Internet explorer always open in fullscreen, and all my favorites open full screen when in IE. But, when I am at the desktop, and click on an icon, it does not open in full screen. I have to maximize it after it opens. I realize this is pretty nitpicking, but I want everything to open in full screen if possible. Ideas?
Thanks,
Bill

Answer:Hoe do I get desktop icons to open full screen?

Right click the shortcut, choose Properties. Go to Shortcut tab, choose Run Maximized from drop down menu.

Notice that some applications have disabled the Maximize button, using a default window size. You can not maximize these apps.

My mom just got a new tablet which came with Windows 10. I'm trying to set it up to be as similar as she was used to with Windows 8.1

I know with the full-screen start menu, you can technically just press the Windows key a second time to return to the desktop view you were just in, but it would be nice if there was something I could click on.

I tried copying the .lnk from Windows 8 and the early 10 betas with the "start screen" option, but alas they don't work in the final versions of Windows 10 at all - they don't even show up in the start menu!

I know you can make a "Show Desktop" shortcut, that does the equivalent of Win+D... but that's not really what I'm after. Mainly just need a simple way to return to the desktop after pressing the Windows key.

Is such a thing possible? Worst case scenario I could do something like AutoHotKey the Windows key, but that's kinda stupid, there's surely something built in. Some Explorer: shell command maybe?

The simplest way I can think of to switch in/out of tablet mode (and the one I use) is WinKey + A to open the Action Centre, where a click on the 'Tablet Mode' tile switches the mode on/off. Though I don't think that's quite what your asking for.

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.

My OS is Windows Vista 32 bit Home Premium.

Recently, via Windows updates, I accidentally DLed IE 9. After realizing the error, I went to Programs and Uninstalled IE 9. and now a back to IE 8.

Now, whenever I click on a Desktop shortcut icon to open any of the programs I ordinarily use, instead of the program opening, I get a screen that says: Open With, and then there follows a brief list of programs I have recently used.

This is driving me crazy!!! How do I get rid of the problem, and go back to opening programs in the usual manner [simply double clicking on the icon]?????

Thanks so much if you can help with this. This is so frustrating, and I will go completely mad if I can't get this fixed!

I had this aswell, my file association list was messed up and so i ended up having the hardest time of my life, the simple answer to this is a file association changing reg.edit file which i ll start work on for you unless some1 else can get it done faster
so dont worry also it may be possible that most of your program's standard openers have been forgotten so next time it says open with then you should choose browse, or set the real program as default

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 have a customer that uses an internet shortcut on his desktop to access our online e-store.

He has other internet shortcuts on his desktop as well.

As of friday...any time he clicks on our shortcut..it says page can't be found or gives an error message.

He can click on the other shortcuts and they open just fine.

Had him try typing it in to an address bar and it shows the same error.

However, we can go to the page off of a link on another web site and get to the login page...(not sure the manual entry in the address bar isn't a typing error)...supporting him over the phone.

Had him delete our shortcut and then when he got back to our login page via the link from another page, I had him add it to internet explorer favorites and then right click and send to the desktop as a shortcut.

He clicks on the shortcut....same thing...

Anyone have any ideas what is going on with this problem or why it's only happening to our shortcut...???

Any insight or help appreciated.

Hi. I want to create a desktop shortcut that will open Windows 7 Explorer in a particular folder, with only a particular type of file displayed (*.dxp if it matters), so that a user only has to run the shortcut and then double-click on one of the files listed to run it via an association.

The best I've been able to do come up with so far is opening Explorer in the right folder.

Alternatively, is there a (hopefully freeware) program that will allow me to do what I want?

Thanks, Peter

Answer:Want to create a desktop shortcut to open Explorer...

I dont 'know but it's just a thought. Have you tried right clicking and select properties and than find the original IE.exe file in C:\Program Files\Where your Internet Explore is located and retpy the target path that's on your desktop. Since it seems your scanning program only changed the desktop version ya know or another way is to just create a shortcut from the start programs menu and just try getting rid of the old IE icon that's on your desktop.

Hello, I work with my companies IT department. Over the past year or so I have had the same problem as listed below. Sometimes uninstalling, deleting the softwares folder and re-installing the program takes care of the problem. Other times (like this one) it does not.

I have a user who has a desktop icon that when double clicked tries to open an install for another program already installed on the computer. It is looking for the location folder for what to install. If I click "OK" it will give an "Error 1706" and then repeats. If I cancel it then it comes up again. If I cancel it a second time it will actually open the intended program for the icon.

How can I get this icon to open the program without going through the install it is asking for?

Answer:Desktop shortcut icon tries to open install from another program

Hi and welcome to the Forum
Try this:
Right click the icon on the desktop, click delete. You should get a pop up telling ou that this will just delete the icon and not the program. OK. Now go to C:\Program Files\ and search for the folder of the program in question. [or if the folder is not there try C:\Program Files (x86)] Locate the program exe file and right click it, choose "Send to" Then choose "Desktop (create shortcut). This will put a new icon on your desktop.
Hope this helps!

Is anyone else having issues opening Edge on more than one desktop? I can open everything thing else, but when I try to open Edge on two different desktops, it just pushes me back to the desktop that Edge is opened in. It seems like desktop programs will open on both, but any app won't. I tried a few others such as the store and have the same problem.

If there's another device where you have saved favorites, you may need to do the same thing on that device.

For some reason Microsoft Edge immediately closes down every time i open it. I've tried sfc /scannow and I've deleted the Microsoft Edge folder in C:/Users/"username"/AppData/Local/Packages and then entering the command in PowerShell to reset but neither worked. Does anyone know what's happening here?

Answer:Microsoft Edge closes immediately after i open it

Have you tried creating a new user and seeing if it works there? If so, you have a profile corruption and your best bet is to transfer all your files to the new profile and delete the old one.

When I click the icon in task bar, EDGE search window will only stay open for about 5 seconds. Why?

Answer:Microsoft Edge wont stay open

So I've had this problem too and I've managed to fix it by doing this. So first go to the "ask me anything" bar and type in any website of your desire and that should work just fine. It's only when you open up the default page, that Edge closes down. So after that go to the top right corner of the browser. Underneath the close button, you should see three dots. Click on them. After that go to settings and near the top, you should see a section that says "open with" and underneath that you should see four bubble options. Choose the very bottom one that says "A specific page or pages" and then a bar underneath, that should appear. You could either keep the default, or choose something else. When you open up Microsoft Edge again, it should open up the default page that you've chosen and it should stay active. Hope this as helped!!

I came to this website as i'm having a issue with malwares.

Earlier this morning, i started to have problems when using Microsoft Edge, the browser keep open another unknown links when i click.

So i searched online and then installed Malwarebytes, the ran the update and the scan, the scan detected some problems so I removed it, then i restarted my computer.

I thought the stuff in the quarantine are not good for my computer so for some reason i deleted the files in the quarantine too!

After that i opened MS Edge to check and now it can't even open! It just close immediately after the window pops up.

Now i have no idea what to do, i haven't done anything to my computer since then. Please help

Oh and i also had a problem started to have when i tried to open the mail app in my windows 10. The app can't sync with my gmail account. When i tried to sync it says the error is: 0x80040154
I found this error when i tried to activate my account to get to this forum, so i don't know if the error occurs after or before i ran the scan with malwarebytes.

I upgraded to Windows 10 and imported my Favorites from IE 11 without any problems. I was able to open any of my folders in my Favorites for the 1st week. Two days ago whenever I clicked on any of my Folders in Favorites not only wouldn't it open but EDGE kicked me back out to my start page. The weird part is I can open any individual link in Favorites without any problem. In addition to not being able to open any folder, I cannot add any link to my Favorites. I read the Tutorial on How To Add or Remove Edge Favorites in Windows 10. What I see when trying to add a website, the CREATE IN block does not allow me to type anything in it. It won't let me Add a New Folder either. EDGE kicks me back out to my start page again. Any suggestions to both of these problems?

It happens in IE11 and Edge browsers, and just started. A couple of other people are having the same problems. The error message actually blocks the title of the video, so you can't read who it is.

I've been using Edge for awhile now (on Windows 10), and noticed that when I click a hyperlink that links to a .jpg format, Edge opens a blank tab, instead of opening the tab the picture embedded. It then immediately closes the new tab.
 
For example, on this site: http://www.paslc.org/RECard/#/propCard/58166
 
Left clicking on the photo results in an empty new tab that closes immediately; right clicking on the photo and "open in new tab" does the same but tries to download the picture to my computer. In previous versions of Internet Explorer clicking on those links would simply open a tab (or a new window) with a preview of the picture.
 
Does anyone know if this is even a feature in MS Edge, and if so how can I enable it?

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.

I've had this problem in years gone by with older IE versions.  They were fixed by doing things like dragging the corners out then hitting File > Exit etc.
 
That doesn't work with this - I'm using IE 11 and Windows 8.1.  Most of the solutions I have come across this morning are for things like IE 10 and Windows 7 etc.
 
What I have tried to do so far
1.  Drag edges of screen out then hit File > Exit.  Has no effect, next time I open Outlook, it is still 1/2 screen.
2.  Hold down Windows key and F11.  Has no effect at all.
3.  Hover over shortcut to Outlook, right-click then Properties.  Supposed to show a Maximise button.  Does not show.
4.  Close every open screen, leaving only Outlook screen open, then drag edges out and hit File > Exit.  Does not work.
 
I have gradually been replacing things I get Internet Explorer to do and shifting over to Chrome (beginning to despise IE more and more) but I am not sure how I can get Outlook to open with Chrome yet.  That, of course, is a possibility which may solve this IE issue.
 
Does anyone know how to fix this current problem for IE 11 and Windows 8.1.?  Older fixes appear to be of no use here.

Here is an overview from their website https://www.mesh.com With Live Mesh, you can synchronize files with all of your devices, so you always have the latest versions handy. Access your files from any device or from the web, easily share them with others, and get notified whenever someone changes a file.
Working on one computer, but need a program from another? No problem. Use Live Mesh to connect to your other computer and access its desktop as if you were sitting right in front of it.
Just sign in with your Live ID and click on add device. Beware, it takes a few minutes to install with no progress indicators so be patient. It also has a very nice user interface.

Bring up Task Manager (Ctrl + Alt + Delete), then in the "processes" tab, scroll down to Microsoft Edge, right click on it and select "end process".
You may actually have to scroll down to the "background tasks" (still in the Processes tab) and do the same for all instances of Edge. Right click and End Process for each one.
After you End all these Edge processes, you should see an option to return to your home page.

Now right click any link on the page, choose Open In New Window....don't maximize it....instead, use the mouse to resize it to what you want it to be.
Now close the FIRST window you opened, and then close the new one you just resized.

Answer:How to open in full screen?

I don't know if this works for SP2 but if you open the window you want to be and make it full screen, then close using the File>Close (Hold down Control whilst clicking on close) rather than the red cross. I know this works with XP.Take careSat

This must have been queried before but bear with me I`m having difficulties locating prior searches. I`ve just changed to IE8 from Firefox and all my windows now open in small screen. I want them to open in Full screen. How can I achieve this? Thanks

Answer:Always open Full Screen

Manually grab the edges of the screen, pull the screen where you
want it. Width and Height. The go to the the bottom quick launch
bar, right click and close.
After that it should always launch the way you set it..
Works for me...

Hi TSG!! Know this may be a simple problem, but it is driving me crazy...and that's a fine line for me already! When I open a site, like the TSG site for example, it opens in reduced size, not full screen. When I resize the window to full screen, I loose the sites close, resize buttons, only having IE's left, so I have to minimize the window, then close it, or will close out IE. Don't have a clue to how this got set to do this...had all working fine, opening regular size, only minimizing when I wanted to. Now I have to keep minimizing, restoring to get the window on a site to be full screen and to be able to close just that window, not the entire IE open. Can anybody clue me in to what I need to do to get this to work how I need it to? Have went in Internet Options, advanced...been in Control Panel...just cannot seem to recall how the heck to set this up! And...will be very appreciated to fix this and surely reduce the amount of cussing done during my internet time!! Thanx...very appreciated!! Parrotplay

Why is it that some webpages, whether from the internet or some htm or html from my hard drive open full screen? I have one file, favestogo.htm which just won't open at a normal size, it just has to open full screen. I have a wide screen monitor and it just annoys me when I have to resize...reach down on the right bottom edge of the screen, and if you go too slow or too far then the taskbar pops up, rats!

I have checked the properties of the file itself and there is no option to open it, whether normal, full size or whatever else.

Does anyone know how to put a leash on this rebel page?

thank you.
Roxy

Answer:Some webpages open full screen in IE8

There is an old trick that can work. Manually resize the window (drag the edges to size you want), then when closing using the X in upper right, hold down the Ctrl key while clicking the X. It actually sounds like your issue is window opening larger than fullscreen? A Guy
