It seems that MS have enabled desktop emulation in Win10 Mobiles - but neglected to tell anyone how the heck to flip the switch either way.

Would some kind person please enlighten me?

Preferred Solution: enable Desktop emulation in Edge Mobile?

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 have a Windows 10 Enterprise 15063.1088 system that accesses a security camera DVR via local IP.
When i login i get a message that i need to download (DL) an addon: IVSWeb.exe. (this is presented as a blackbox with DL URL in center over what should be camera feeds)
DLing, installing, adding site to compatibility list, relaxing Edge security settings, etc. does not change the behavior (prompted to DL IVSWeb.exe).
When i use browser emulation the results are the same (IE 8 through 11) UNTIL i get to
Microsoft Edge - Windows 10 Mobile. This setting along with
Internet Explorer 11 - Windows Phone 8.1 Update and Internet Explorer 10 - Windows Phone 8
allow me to access the DVR and view camera feeds.
This behavior is duplicated if i use IE 11 browser then enable emulation. Prompted to DL addon until emulation hits
Internet Explorer 11 - Windows Phone 8.1 Update
My question is:
What is difference between desktop Edge (cant stream camera feeds) and emulated Windows 10 mobile Edge (can stream camera feeds)?
Same for IE:
What is the difference between desktop IE 11( cant stream camera feeds)  and emulated IE 11 (can stream camera feeds)?

(in researching this i have just downloaded a couple of the browser VMs to test)

Preparation plus Opportunity = Luck

OK here is the deal...I was infected with antispyware soft. (Nasty little program) After following your guide I was able to remove it successfully. I'm trying to reenable my CD Emulation Software, Daemon tools, and when I run Defogger.exe and click re-enable, it generates an error. Unable to open file.I wasn't sure where exactly to post this, I thought that someone here could either help me or point me in the right direction. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Doug

Hi everyone,
I have this code that works excellent with any browser but not with Edge 14 on windows 10 mobile (Lumia 950)

if (xmlHttp.readyState == 4 && xmlHttp.status == 200) {
            manageProfileIframe.setAttribute("src", "data\:text/html," + xmlHttp.response);

In Edge on mobile, the Iframe shows:
hmm, we can't reach this page.
Try this
Make sure you?ve got the right web address: data:text/html,<!doctype html><html lang="en" xmlns="http://www.w3.org
Refresh the page
Search for what you want

You're not connected
And the web just isn?t the same without you.
Let?s get you back online
Make sure you?re not in airplane mode.
See if your wireless switch is turned on.
Go to network settings

xmlHttp.response is very simple, has the header and a simple paragraph in the body

I use 3 Mobile Wireless for my internet connection to my desktop. I use the Three Huawei E585 which although a wireless device i connect to the desktop using the provided usb lead. I am running Vista.

The internet stops working all the time, although the device itself on its screen, or via the web interface still indicates that i have a good signal strength and that i'm still connected.

I have discovered that if i START / SETTINGS / NETWORK CONNECTIONS i can see the device listed. If i right click on the device i can see that the device is enabled. If I Disable the device and then Enable the device, i can surf again for a couple of minutes, before having to repeat the process.

Any ideas why this is happening, and why what i do solves the problem for a bit.

And crucially how to fix it

I am sure the issue is with the desktop, as i have reverted to using the wifes v old laptop running XP and i can surf without complication on this machine. Can also connect ipod touch to internet with no issues.

I have window 10 pro updated to the anniversary edition. I would like to use Microsoft Edge. The only problem is that the javascript is not enabled so most pages are not viewable. My system:
Toshiba C640 Laptop with intel i5 2nd generation.

It initially had Win7 Pro which I updated to Win 10 pro and then recently to win 10 pro with anniversary update. Before the anniversary update I had the same problem since the end of December last year (2015). I was able to enable javascript by fixing the registry. This fix got overturned after the anniversary update. Unfortunately I have forgotten the regedit fix steps. The group policy route is not relevant since the allow script option is not visible under group policy.

I have an Lenovo Thinkpad L480 and want to enable edge scrolling, running Windows 10. The problem is that I can not find any option to do so. In the Windows 10 "Settings" (translated from norwegian) app (for devices) under the touchpad group the option to enable/disable two-finger scroll is there but it only applies for that. There is also a "More settings" (translated from norwegian) link that takes me to a "Mouse Properties" dialog box with the "ThinkPad" tab selected.  The tab has an "advanced settings" button there (which according to the text leads me to settings for the touchpad).  It takes me to an app titled "Elan Smart-Pad".The "Elan Smart-Pad" has options for "PalmTracking", sensitivity and SmartArea.  None of these contain options to enable edge scrolling. Going back to the "Mouse Properties" dialog, there is also a "Hardware" tab.  The (only) two devices mentioned there (which both have the type "Mice and other pointing devices")with properties are: "Elan Input Device for WDF":- Manufacturer: ELAN- Location: plugged into PS/2 mouse port- Device status: This device is working properly.- Advanced-button -> Details ->Property "Class": MouseHID-compliant mouse- Manufacturer: Microsoft- Location: on Elan Miniport PTP Driver- Device status: This device is working properly.- Advanced-button -> Details ->Property "Class": Mouse To me it seems like either the touchpad is (except for the multi-finger options) int...

I can't use GP to enable Enterprise Mode in MS Edge as we have old AD (not sure if this can be fixed by adding some admx). 2008 Server (not even R2).
I have already enabled Enterprise Mode for IE11 via registry and it works fine on Windows 10. I have found an article (updated a month ago). Which mentions
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\MicrosoftEdge\Main\EnterpriseMode registry to enable it in Edge. But i don't have such registry on 1607 build. The article
So, has this registry moved somewhere else, or maybe it was removed recently? Is there any other way to enable EM for Edge other than GP?

Okay, I bought a new laptop recently, and I have a problem. Almost every game I try to play says, "AGP is not enabled....", and it tells me its needed for best performance. How do I enable it? I googled it, and I couldnt find anything, so I decided to ask here. My system specs are:

Computer Maker: TOSHIBA
Processor: Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 1.70GHz
Memory: 1014MB RAM
Hard Drive: 200 GB
Video Card: Mobile Intel(R) 945GM


A:How do I enable AGP on my Mobile Intel(R) 945GM Express Chipset family card?

From what I've read, you have an onboard graphics card(on your motherboard) I'm not sure if you have just that onboard card, or if you just have another card. If so, you could go into your BIOS(usually delete/f1/f2 at startup, one of those keys) read through it a bit. I know that sometimes there's an 'enable AGP' option, or anything that looks like it.

However, it doesn't look like you have an AGP card in your laptop.
Check that out first though. You might also want to check if you have the correct drivers for your card installed. On a side notenboard cards aren't very good for games, but they might handle a few.

I am attempting to start the "Mobile Hotspot" that is inside the settings menu, without an active internet connection. Is there any way I can do this, or is there an alternative?
What I have tested before is using the netsh command to set and start the "Hosted Network". I can set the settings fine, but starting the hosted network yields "The hosted network couldn't be started. The group or resource is not in the correct state to perform the requested operation.". I have already tried the fix where you enable the "Virtual Adapter" device in device manager, but it did not change anything.
To clarify, even though the netsh method fails, using Mobile Hotspot with an active internet connection works fine.

Mobile AMD CPU

I have a mobile AMD CPU in my desktop, it does not read the correct speed but functions OK. I only use this machine to test software that I aquire over the internet, so speed is really not an issue. However, I have an identical machine using the same speed AMD CPU but is not a mobile processor, it reads correct speed during boot-up and performs much better. I would stay away from the mobile processors for desktop machines. The mobile processors are designed to run at variable speeds according to the power source.
Also, the motherboard you have is a Socket 462 and the AMD 64 processors are Socket 754 or 939. The 64 bit processor is incompatible with your current motherboard.

It occurred to me that if I could have a desktop browser identify itself as a mobile browser, then I could see what sites (including ones I work on) look like that way, AND it could speed up web browsing, for sites that have a smaller web interface.

I know there are many online emulators to see exactly what a site looks like for a specific browser on a specific smartphone, but they use Java applets or proxy servers that make the pages load quite slowly.

I'm just looking for a way to make some browser--Chrome, Firefox, Opera, whatever--make visited websites think it's a mobile device, so the full browser loads the mobile-only version of the page. I have not found an easy way to do this. So far, all I can find are some user agent switching plugins for firefox that, if you know exactly what user agent header string to use, might convince sites to send you to their mobile site.

Any other suggestions? Thanks!

Unfortunately, many programs, and windows run off the bottom of my screen and I cant see any of the options past that point. I cant move them because Windows wont let me move the programs past the top of the screen. There is the MOVE option from the menu in the top-left on some programs, but I am looking more for the ability to grab the windows anywhere, while maybe using a keyboard command, and dragging the window where I need it, past the edge of the screen.

A:Desktop to laptop w/ EDGE Modem

If you are going to use wired only it's probably easier to just connect the two PCs by ethernet. Cross-over cable will always work for this, and your Windows 7 computer is surely new enough to have an auto sensing port (meaning that a regular cable should work also). After connecting them enable ICS on the internet connection. Configure any non-Windows firewalls for the desired access.

Otherwise, configure the router as follows and then enable ICS on the internet connection. Use for the router's LAN address.

JohnWill's procedure (Aug. 30, 2008) for configuring a secondary router as a switch and, optionally, wireless access point follows.

Connecting two (or more) SOHO broadband routers together.

Note: The "primary" router can be an actual router, a software gateway like Microsoft Internet Connection Sharing, or a server connection that has the capability to supply more than one IP address using DHCP server capability. No changes are made to the primary "router" configuration.

Configure the IP address of the secondary router(s) to be in the same subnet as the primary router, but out of the range of the DHCP server in the primary router. For instance DHCP server addresses through, I'd assign the secondary router as it's IP address, for another router, etc.

You can pin pages to start (using the three dot menu on the top right), or add to the favorites folder or favorites bar via the favorite star icon or the menu. You can't save a shortcut anywhere else with Edge at the moment - you'd still need to use IE11 for that (although assuming a shortcut is just a URL file, you should be able to open it in Edge by default for what it's worth).

I've used this laptop for about two weeks worth of gentle use and now, after booting up, trying to do almost ANYTHING freezes the laptop, the things that don't cause it to freeze do nothing. I can't even open the START menu, just right clicking ont he desktop causes it to give me the 'processing' circle and doesn't stop, meaning I can't click on anything anymore. Even just trying to bring up the touch keyboard freezes the laptop, (the keabord also stops working once I reach the desktop). Again, this is only after about two weeks of use compared to my old laptop, (the one I'm using now), which I have admittantly abused for five-ish years and it still works fine, not perfectly but it works. EDIT: So I managed to get lucky and it didn't freeze long enough for me to get into the settings and start a reset, the screen says, "This won't take long", but I suspsect it may take a while.

A:New Lenovo Edge 2-1580 Freezes on Desktop

Hi Xros,
Welcome to Lenovo Forums.
Try the BIOS update.
When in Safe mode, remove your current video driver. Boot up to your regular desktop, which should now be in VGA mode (all video cards have a default VGA mode, when you don't have a driver installed). If the desktop is now not frozen then that helps prove it was your video driver being the problem. See if that fixes the problem.

Just reboot the PC. If all you did was stop the program in task manager. No settings are saved that way.

Alright ladies and gentleman. I've decided to make a tutorial for getting the latest desktop drivers for NVIDIA laptop models to work well
for you. Here's how to proceed. This is for x86. x64 is slightly more difficult due to driver signing enforcement.
You can try to permanently disable this "feature" of Windows 7 x64 by searching Google. Please do not ask me how as I do not use x64 and
don't know. But there is a way. If you can't find it, for x64, you will have to use f8 or similar key to start the machine each time.
1) Download the latest desktop driver for Win7 and the card that is closest to yours from NVIDIA's website.

2) Extract the installer to C:\NVIDIA - Close installer after extraction. It is not needed now any longer.

3) Find NV_DISP.inf and open it in notepad.

4) Look at the models of cards listed. Choose to edit one that is closest to yours.

5) Open device manager. Right click on standard vga or your video card and choose properties. Details tab. Change drop down to hardware ids. The second line down is of interest here.

6) In the .inf, scroll to the bottom [Strings] section. Again, look for most similar desktop model. Change the beginning part to match what you found in last step 5. For example:

NVIDIA_DEV.0421.01 = "NVIDIA GeForce 8500 GT"

and you have 8400M GT, change it to

NVIDIA_DEV.0426.01 = "NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GT"

7) Now look up higher in the .inf and search for the number you edited. In this case, "0421&q... Read more

my desktop was running slow. so I cleaned it the normal way. antivirus, disk defragmenter, disk cleanup, deleted all caches, etc. the computer was faster. I upgraded my two web browsers that I have, chrome and firefox, and added some extensions. a little bit later I was trying to use my cellphone's wifi to get on the internet and it said failed to identify IP address. My sister and mom checked their cellphones and theirs both said the same thing. this morning I found that our three tablets won't connect either. is there any correlation to me updating my desktop and cleaning up my internet that would do this? I have never had this problem before last night.

Yesterday, after finishing a Mass Effect 3 session, I noticed that desktop composition had been disabled. I tried re-enabling it in the advanced system settings/performance, but to no avail. Checking it and hitting "apply" didn't change anything. And when I closed and re-opened the performance settings window, it is unchecked.

I also noticed that transparent glass isn't an option (though I can't remember for sure if it showed up before, although I definitely had transparency effects before this issue arose).

Tried doing a clean re-install of the latest nvidia drivers. No luck.

the "Desktop Window Manager Session Manager" service is enabled.

I'm up to date with all the windows updates.

Any advice would be appreciated!

A:Cannot enable desktop composition

From your screenshot I see the "Windows Activation" section is missing! Is your Windows installation activated?
