Windows 7 Not Remembering On-Top Elements

Q: Windows 7 Not Remembering On-Top Elements

I used to have a triple-monitor setup, but one of the monitors died. Since I removed the other monitor, Windows has had trouble remembering the "Always On Top" status for: 1) The Taskbar 2) Gadgets and 3) Winamp.

I've restarted a number of times since I removed the monitor but still the problem persists. Windows will remember to keep an element on top for a little while, but eventually forgets until I manually click on the object to bring it back on top, where it remains until Windows next forgets. The taskbar no longer has a tickbox option for "Always on top". Winamp is set to be "Always On Top".

Does anyone have any ideas on how to resolve this problem? Thanks!

Since this same product set freshly installed on a Win 8.1 laptop works I suspect something unique on this Win7 platform. Any suggestions on what I could look at to determine cause for application termination?

Any recommendations for a newbie to get up to speed with Photoshop Elements 7 and Premiere Elements 7 ?

I'm interested in DVD based tutorials or web-based tutorials. I googled and found so many forum based user support websites, that it's over whelms me.

Windows 7 does not remember/save wireless networks even though I check "connect automatically" when I connect. In the Manage Wireless Networks control panel ONLY the current wireless network I connected to is ever listed. If I connect to another wireless network then that previous network is gone from the list.

Any ideas how to resolve this?

P.S. - I'm running Windows 7 Professional 64-bit

A:Windows 7 Not Remembering Wireless Networks

Try Deleting All Wireless Profiles, and rebooting the system.

Once you've rebooted, check the "Connect Automatically" option and connect to the desired wireless network.

Then disconnect from the first wireless network and connect to the second.

Windows 7 Home, x64

I was starting a game (Trackmania United) and it froze and nothing was responding so I held the power button and restarted.

When it powered on and i went into Windows i noticed everything had gone back to default, the background was different, system colors, nothing on Taskbar or Start Menu.

Now I can't have permanent settings, for instance I like the System Tray to have all icons showing all the time, but when I restart it only shows icons that are actively used and i must click an arrow to see background icons that are not in use but are still running.

I also cannot pin Shortcuts to the taskbar, when I right click an open program and click 'Pin to Taskbar' it simply does not allow me to click this, literally I can not click this option. I am the admin of the computer and only use on it. Thanks for help, very odd of this to have occurred.

I'm getting really annoyed that I have to keep resizing my windows. It's especially apparent with my control panel window which gets used more than most. I've been using windows since 3.1 and NEVER had this issue. Did Microsoft decide to make this resource cow, which is a pain to use, and then decide to remove the ability to remember window sizes just to spite us or are they just plain stupid?

So far I give Vista a 3 out of 100! Yet another version of windows dumbed down for the American people.

I don't know if this has been asked before but I searched and couldn't find anything. After performing some Windows XP updates recently I've discovered that Windows Explorer won't remember the settings from a previous session. The window opens up minimized, the folders sometimes have the large icons rather than the Details that I prefer. I've gone through the various view settings and tried different things and nothing seems to work. I'm sure there is some simple thing that I am overlooking but I've gone through the settings again and again. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Brand new HP Windows 7 64-bit Home Premium machine just out of the box. Shipped with a dial-up modem and NO wireless adapter (DUH!). Installed an EnGenius USB wireless adapter which set up without a hitch. Went through the process of connecting to the internet. Was able to get online and surf-- no problems.

The problem is that Windows 7 will not retain the wireless settings, and EVERY SINGLE TIME that I boot up the machine I have to go through the WHOLE PROCESS of opening Network Sharing Center, searching for my wireless home network, typing in the security code, and establishing the connection ONCE AGAIN. Why won't Windows 7 remember the wireless settings??? This is most frustrating! IF I open the "Manage Wireless Networks" panel there are NO NETWORKS listed! I have run Windows update.

Can anyone provide me with a a clus as to what is going on here? Thanks for any and all assistance!

A:Windows 7 Not Remembering Wireless Settings!!!

Hi technomann,

Try going in to Control Panel > Network and Internet > Manage Wireless Networks. If the desired internet connection is already listed, right click and go to Properties. If not, add your connection manually. In Properties, there should be a check box with an option to have Windows 7 automatically connect to this network. Make sure that box is checked and let us know if this fixes the problem.

I have a user with a Dell Latitude E4300 running our corporate Vista image, using a docking station and an external Dell 24" FP display.

Windows is not remembering the positioning of the external display upon undock/redock.

Previously, Windows would retain neither the positioning or resolution of the external display, but disabling TMM in the task scheduler has resolved at least the resolution part of the issue - still, it forgets the positioning of the external display.

Issue occurs both over VGA and DVI connections. I've removed/re-installed the latest drivers for the onboard video card from Dell's website, to no avail.

First of all let me apologize for repeating the scaling issue. I have searched high and low and tried just about anything i could find, but Windows is still misbehaving.

First let me explain my issues. There are 2 specific ones that annoy me.

Issue 1.
I have an HP Elitebook 8570w laptop that I use for work. At home I use the laptop as it is but at the office I have a docking station with a second display connected to it.

My issues are when i connect it to the docking station.

My PC has a native resolution of 1920x1080 and my second screen is 24" and 1920x1200.
When i insert the laptop in the docking it scales the laptop screen and it becomes blurry while the larger screen is clear.

The settings that so far works best for me is to have "Let me choose one scaling level for all my displays" turned OFF and set to smaller, but every time i insert it in the docking station I have to go in to these settings and change from smaller to another setting on the slider, click apply and then change back to smaller. This removed the blurryness and scaling seems normal without having to sign out and back in.

This is my settings for the scaling.

The result after booting up in the docking station: (full screen snipp showing one half clear and the other blurry)

Changing this setting once and back fixes it:

My question about this is why does it do this? From what I understand of the settings here is that I have set it to smaller and (after changing ... Read more

I have a micro-usb cable for charging my mouse that the cats chewed through. It was doing the device connect/disconnect sound over and over with an annoying popup. Oddly enough, the cable still works but now it shows as an "Unknown Device" in the Device Manager under "Other devices".
The way I did my cable management in the back of my desktop is I ran everything through a tube, so even though I have a replacement for that micro-usb, in order to remove it and replace it with the working one I'd have to spend so much time and effort. What's funny is the reason I did all of this cable management was because of the cats, I had all of my usb cords going through a separate piece of cardboard to where they plug in but they still managed to find an exposed area to chew.
So my ghetto solution was I replaced the connect/disconnect .wav with a .wav with no audio. The pop up is what is still giving me trouble though, every time it pops up it forgets that I set it to "Hide icon and notifications"

"USB Device not recognized: The last usb device you connected to this computer malfunctioned and Windows does not recognize it" - How do I get this message to permanently shut up.

My printer has also been giving me a similar pop up but it's only once I boot since it's not turned on then.

A:Windows Explorer Notification is not remembering settings

If it is no longer plugged into a USB port and you are still getting that notification, you may be able to get rid of it by going into device manager and deleting the hidden profile. So, to view profiles that are not active, you must select View then select Hidden profiles. Once done, you will see many devices displayed that are greyed-out which indicates they are not active. Find the one you think may be causing the issue and delete it. No guarantees but this was the first thing that came to my mind. Good luck.

When I open windows explorer menu it opens at a smaller window size then I'd like it to, so I resize it and close it but the next time that I open it from right clicking on the start menu and choosing explore, it opens at the same position and small size and isn't holding the window resizing that I did... What I've tried so far to make the window size "stick":

1. Use the Windows Explorer "ALT" key to bring up the File menu at the top of the explorer and choose "close" after resizing my Explorer window.

2. Made sure that the "Remember each folder's view settings" is checked. I've also unchecked it, chose apply, then recheck marked it and chose apply just in case it needed refreshing.

3. Used the "X" button at the top right of the window to close it after resizing it to the size that I want. And finally

4. Chose the upper left corner menu (the one with Restore, Minimize, Move, Close in it) and chosen Close.

None of which has worked to save the windows explorer sized window, it always opens in the same exact position and the same exact size (which I want to make larger when it initially opens as it's way too small for me)

I've heard that resizing the window and using the "X" button to close it will not save the size and that you have to use the ALT menu to choose File > Close to save the size and position however that's not working for me.

Any other suggestions?

Using Eventghost I have setup a command to open a Video folder on monitor 2 (HDMI connected Sony Bravia)
I also have installed and use Display Fushion to manage my monitors.
My problem is that Windows Explorer seems to want to remember its last opened location so that I now find even if I open any other folder on my PC it displays straight to my TV screen (Monitor 2).
Only after dragging the opened folder back to my PC monitor and then closing it all other folders open as normal on my PC but also the programmed Eventghost macro video folder. This fails to open on TV unless dragged back to TV and then I?m back to the problem again of all folders opening on TV.
I basically just want Eventghost to do its thing without Windows then remembering and making all future folders opening on Monitor 2 (TV).
Hope I?ve explained this clearly enough.

Hell everyone, my computer (ever since I can remember) has been a bit stubborn in remembering the size I give to certain windows and, on occasion, the type of views I give inside folders and so on (big icons, lists, details, etc.) I was wondering if this was a general problem with Vista or if my system is somehow compromised? Oh, and also on program windows like IE and Windows Media Player...

Also, I can't, for the life of me, seemingly keep the Windows Update settings to "Automatic". Every now and then the system has a pop-up notifications telling me to check my Windows Update settings and I do, then I change it back to automatic but it goes back to disabled after a few days. The strange thing about this is how it only began about two weeks ago, this Windows Firewall problem, the other window sizes and views has always been present in my system.

A:Windows Mail not remembering mail addresses

Hi anilthap.

Welcome to the forums.

WM will remember the last 29 addys you have sent mail to. It will also search in you Contacts folder for addys, but it won't do that until you tab or click out of the 'To' box.

One thing that can break WM finding addys in the Contacts folder is improperly moving the folder from Users/username. If you have not done this, then you might try Problem 2 here: Windows Mail problems

Hope this helps. Please keep us posted.

IE8 isn't remembering passwords on my email accounts. I have tried putting them on as 'trusted sites' under internet options - this didn't work. This happened before and I posted here but didn't save the topic (is this possible?) so can't remember how to fix.

Greetings BC,

This problem is happening in Chrome. At my school, you have to log in to use the internet. When I connect using the wireless my log in credentials are saved and all I have to do is click log in. However, when using the wired connection (much faster) it does not remember my log in details. I believe it used to but one time a friend logged in with theirs for some reason and now it doesn't remember them. Typing this in every time I want to get on the internet is pretty annoying and I would like to have it remember my log in details.

Picture if you want: http://i.imgur.com/QQjJa.png

I tried deleting the saved password in Chrome for the URL I get when logging in to wired but it didn't remember it after I logged in again.

Could someone please let me know how I can get Chrome to remember the log in details?

I am using a Firefox browser which has just been updated to I don't like version 3.

When i login to hotmail & check the 'remember me on this computer' tab, it does remember me after i sign out until i close the browser.
When i re-open the browser, i have to type all in again!

Ok, i think in IE, it remembers me all the time!

Could it be the update?

When i was about to contact hotmail technical help, it said to include any software just installed in my query!
As i say, recent update & also i installed SuperAntispyware & System info for Windows info, thats all.

Help appreciated.

I accidentally deleted all my passwords the other day in FF, and now the few I have in it, sometimes it's remembering and sometimes it's not and I have to look up and type in. I've looked at the passwords and they're supposed to be in there; however, sometimes showing and other times won't show even with closing tabs and windows and reopening.

Anyway to fix this?

It wasn't a problem before.
