Q: Alt+Tab Switcher Showing More Than 1 Option for the Same Application!!

Please see the attached .jpeg for better explanation.

Thanks in advance!!

Preferred Solution: Alt+Tab Switcher Showing More Than 1 Option for the Same Application!!

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.)

Hey everyone,
Just discovered a bizarre application switcher from microsoft, somewhat similar to Apple's Expose.
Here's the screenshot

The thing came up when I clicked the mouse wheel. The mouse is Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 8000. Microsoft software that came with the mouse is installed. Checked the mouse buttons config, and it says that clicking the wheel brings up the Flip 3D.

But, since I use the basic vista theme with Aero disabled (like it more this way), there is no Flip 3D on my machine. When I enable the Aero, clicking the mouse wheel brings up Flip 3D.

Anyone got any idea what is this thing?
Actually i quite like it, because it is fast as hell, way faster and more useful than other third party "expose on windows" third party solutions I tried some time before.
I was wondering how to bring up this thing from my keyboard, but win+tab does nothing. As for now, only clicking the mouse wheel works.
Tried to google this, but didn't find any solutions. Any ideas?

Also, hi to everyone, fisrt post here.

A:Strange application switcher

Hello BGSH, and welcome to Vista Forums.

When Aero is enabled you get the Flip 3D affect. When it is not, you get the standard select open window instead. See the tutorial below to see if this is what you are seeing.

Hi everyone - newbie poster here.  Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
I have a Windows XP machine with a roaming profile served by Windows Server 2007.  Some time ago, the application switcher pop-up, which normally shows icons for all open applications, turned into a solid black rectangle (size adjusts, depending on the number of apps open).  This is true no matter what machine I use with my profile so it would appear that it is some sort of corruption at the profile level.
This is a work machine and I do have an IT company that I could have look at this for me, but something like this would come with an hourly charge so I'd prefer to figure out how to solve it myself as it's certainly not mission critical, just annoying.
FYI, I would call my self an intermediary Windows user.  I'm not a novice by any stretch (have been using PCs since the DOS days), but despite by computer geek leanings have never put the time into being true power user so please tailor any suggestions accordingly.

too long; didn't read: I (2nd year CS Student) am looking for a way to increase the animation speed or disable the animation of the Logitech SetPoint "Application Switcher" Button on windows 7?

Hi All!

First off, I found this community by accident while looking for some tips and tricks! I registered and am curious to see if maybe I can receive some help or a pointer in the right direction with my issue (because it's not really a problem).

So, at home I have my windows 10 and use the M705 Logitech Mouse with the thumb-button configured to show my application switcher (Shows open Applications on current desktop and at the bottom a list of virtual desktops), which I LOVE.

Que coming to work. "Here's your windows 7 laptop."

... "thank you?" I do get it, security is important and they have it set up specifically to tailor their needs, so, while a tad disappointing, I understand why.

Anyway, I'm setting things up the way I like it and found that the windows 7 application switcher (ALT+Tab) isn't really that fantastic. I installed the SetPoint from Logitech because my mouse is more comfortable and was surprised to find that they had implemented a type of application switcher for windows 7! All in all, it works like a charm. The only downside being is that the animation is quite slow.

I've been souring the Interwebs for a secret setting and the install files for a config file to adjust but with little (I mean none at this point) ... Read more

I am using an IBM Thinkpad T40. It does not have a wireless card so I am using a U.S Robotics Wireless Turbo PC Card USR5410. I downloaded the most recent driver, and installed it. However there was only one problem, when I try connecting to a network, the WPA Encryption option is not in the drop down menu. However I am sure that the card is WPA compatible because the driver said enables WPA, and when I had win xp, the wpa option worked. However in order to get it to work with xp, I had to download Boingo Wireless Utility (unfortunately that is not compatible with 7).

I have read 1000 different topic threads saying that WPA does not show up because the card is not compatible but I am pretty sure that this card supports WPA.

Hi the problem you mentioned, is not a hardwre problem
i think you used like me texas instrument driver. this driver is not compatible with wpa. i had the same problem with vista and now with 7.
there was a year ago another driver that is compatible. if you see in hardware zone the name of your wireless card is the original name, likeme?
this is the wrong driver. the correct driver for vista/7 is a driver you can see hardware name simply like Generic Wireless card adapter .
now i post you the link for the instruction but unfortunatly the link for download the driver dowsn't work and me also don't know how to find this driver . i delete it 2 years ago accidentaly

A:Folder option/Run/Search not showing..HELP.....

Try the fix at Kelly's Korner.Restore Folder Options Under Tools - #129 on the left.Right click on it and save the .reg file to your desktop. Then, double click on the file icon (on your desktop) to merge it into your registry. You may need to reboot your computer for the changes to take affect.With any fix like this you should create a new restore point and backup the registry first. For backing up the registry I like to use ERUNT.

I have an Asus R503U laptop running Windows 8.1, 64 bit, and the headset has never worked properly with this computer. I am pretty certain it is not the headset, but a settings or software issue..

For one thing, there is no "headset" listed as a separate playback option even after I plug the headset in - however, I can hear through the headset if I choose the speaker as a playback option, and if I unplug the headset, sound will play through the computer speaker, so I have just been using the speaker setting for playback when wanting to hear through the headset.

However the recording/microphone option produces a horrible humming feedback sound when I try to use Skype or record through the headset mic. The recording options are "microphone" or "stereo" and even if I disable "stereo" I have the problem.

My drivers are uptodate - I am using VIA drivers. I have fiddled with various sound settings but can get nothing to work. I have all enhancements to sound disabled and also tried using the trouble shooter to no avail. Can anyone help me figure out what to do here?

Much appreciated - thanks

A:Headset not showing as a playback option, no mic either

Is this a standard analog mic/headset that plugs into the mic and headphone jacks, or is this a USB connected type?

In the Recording options, the "Stereo Mix" (may be called System Mixer) should be set as the default recording device. Then if a mic or line in is used it will be heard or be able to record.

Did this PC come with Windows 8 or was it upgraded from XP or Win 7?

I have a Dell Inspiron 2200 that came with a built-in wireless card. I used it for two years with no problem connecting to any of the wireless connections around.

Recently, my screen was replaced due to cracks in the screen. When my computer was returned to me, I did not see the wireless option in the bottom of my screen. It didn't even show up. I tried to look for it all over my computer, but I don't know much about it. I did find in the control panel when I clicked on the Dell Wireless WYLAN card Utility, it said no adapters. Also, when I click on the Intel(R) PROSet for Wired Connections, it shows two network components:
Dell Wireless 1470 Dual Band WYLAN
Intel(R) PRO/100 VE Network Connection

The Dell one has a red x next to it.

Any suggestions on what might be wrong??

I was doing a repair using the Win XP Home SP2 (slipstreamed).

It kept hanging and rebooting by itself only to repeat the F3 Repair, or Enter to proceed with setup.

After I quit out of the program and a reboot, I was able to boot into safe mode. This is when I did the sfc /scannow.

It seems to fix it, but now I'm showing a boot menu option
Windows (default)
Windows (default)

Win XP is is showing twice!

And when I choose the first one, Windows asked me to validate or authenticate my copy. After a phone call with Microsoft my system is verified and authenticated.

However, if I choose the 2nd line Windows (default), Windows is saying I need to validate or authenticate my copy again.

How do I get rid of that 2nd line? My system seems to think I have dual boot, but for the same Win Xp.

I've just installed the beta of Windows 7 on a 2 disk set-up, XP already installed on the other disk. I know there isn't a Windows 7 forum but it's essentially Vista so the solution should be as Vista I imagine.

If you install Vista after XP shouldn't XP appear in the Vista boot menu? In my case it doesn't but I'd like it to.

The only way I can set which OS boots is by selecting which drive boots first through the BIOS.
Is there a simple way to fix this?

I am currently using a work issued Windows 7 Enterprise laptop.


It has been experiencing problems with boot, this same thing has happened before and i was able to fix it using the "Startup Repair (recommended)" option.

This time however it has problems that prevent boot that apear exacaly to same as before but each time it restarts it does not show Startup Repair option and instead goes right to the windows splash screen.

I do not have administrator access so i can not simply press F8 and go to Systen Repair and select to option from there because an administrator password is required.

Anyway, can I use my limited account in safemode to force the startup repair to run on boot?

Giving the computer to a work related technition is not currently an option.

Thanks In advance.

Welcome to Seven Forums septic. I believe you are getting no responses because it is a work issued PC, and you do not have administrator access.

Howdy, glad to join your forum! Just upgraded my pc to Windows 7 ultimate x 32, and I can't seem to get both of my moniters to be recognized though they are both displaying the same image (they are both showing up as primary or "1").
In my system prefs I'm not getting the 2 moniter option. In fact I have two video cards each with a VGA and DVI ports, both cards are Nvidia P162
N11071 Geforce FX5200 128MB AGP...when it was working before (with Windows XP) I would have 1 moniter on the bottom card using the DVI slot and the other moniter on top card using the VGA slot (that seemed to be the only config that worked)...NOW the top card won'y work AT ALL (eithe VGA or DVI) but both moniters will work using both slots on the bottom card, however-and this is the problem: my system is only recognizing 1 moniter and send the same image to both moniters, with no 2 moniter options...I looked on the Nvidia site to find a driver for the N11071 for Windows 7 and only drivers for Windows XP showed up...is that the issue? What can be done? Help? Thanks!

A:Windows 7 not giving me the 2 moniter option both are showing same ima

As far as a driver goes you're not going to find one as Nvidia never made one. The best you're going to find is a Vista beta driver,

that does work with Windows 7.

I know I'm using the right DVI-D cable because its the same cable I used to get 144hz before. The setting doesnt even show up. I've tried updating both the graphics drivers and monitor drivers to no avail.

I decided to upgrade my current PC (running on Vista) with a SSD drive.

Is it still possible to add my Vista on the D-drive to this list?

Tnx in advance.

A:Vista not showing up as an option in dual boot

Hello OldEvil1, and welcome to Eight Forums.

If you upgraded from Vista to Windows 8, then Windows 8 formatted and replaced your Vista.

Not to mention, that if you purchased an upgrade copy of Windows 8 with your Vista as the qualifying OS, then you are not suppose to use your Vista product key if you have Windows 8 installed as per the EULA below.


What about upgrading the software?

The software covered by this agreement is an upgrade to your existing operating system software, so the upgrade replaces the original software that you are upgrading. You do not retain any rights to the original software after you have upgraded and you may not continue to use it or transfer it in any way. This agreement governs your rights to use the upgrade software and replaces the agreement for the software from which you upgraded. After you complete your upgrade, additional software will be required to playback or record certain types of media, including DVDs.

I recently ran a malware scan and had some issues. After restarting the system i can no longer boot to windows. Here's some things I've tried and run into so far:
If i run the windowx 7 ultimate repair cd my operating system doesn't show in the list.
If i let the computer boot normally, i end up with a blank screen and flash upper right hand side cursor.
The only way i've been able to get into safe mode is when the repair disc is running, but then its just the repair disc safe mode and not the actual system safe mode.

Something else i noticed was that when i checked my bios boot priority order it's all messed up, so i change it, save and restart. But then if i go back in its just reverted back to the way it was.

I need some guidance here on what's going on and how to fix it.

A:Windows 7 - operating system not showing in repair option

So in Windows 7, whatever applications you have pinned to the start menu sometimes have a triangle facing out, and if you click on that triangle, it will show the recent documents you've worked with that application. As the title says, there is one application that just won't show the list no matter how many times I click on the triangle. However, other applications DO show that list. How is it that only one application is causing trouble while others aren't?

Hello Cyanide,

You might see if rebuilding the icon cache may help.

If not, then you might see if creating new shortcuts for them directly from the program's .exe file may display properly.

I have a pre-loaded shopping application called Wizlink in my computer. I would like to uninstall it but it doesn't show up in the Uninstall utility in Control Panel. Has anyone heard of Wizlink? I would like to know whether simply deleting it without knowing what the associated files are and if they are going to cause any problems.

I have an HP and this program was pre-installed and linked to a couple of shopping shortcut icons also preloaded on my desktop (eBay etc).

Why can't the Uninstall utility find this pesky program, as I would much rather use an uninstaller than simply delete the program?

Any advice?

I'm currently working with a client who frequently uses an application that is located on a mapped drive on their server. Every time that their computer starts up, the icons on the desktop show as broken until they go to My Computer, go to their T:\ and browse the directory, then it'll show up as a working shortcut on their desktop. At first I remapped the network drive and checked the box next to "reconnect at logon" to see if that would help, but it they still have to click on the actual mapped drive from within "My Computer." Is there a way to maybe create a batch that will perform this action when they start their computer. Say a "net use" command which will remap the drive every time they start the computer and then have it do a "dir" within the T: once it's connected. It's been years since I've really worked with DOS commands, as I'm typically working with Linux and Basic Windows XP, 7 applications, so I don't really recall how to set up a batch job like that.

A:Mapped Drive Application Not Showing up on Startup


How about something like:

net use t: \\PCName\ShareName
dir t:
Copy to a file and save as "Run_Me.bat" (Or something)
Put it in your startup folder.

Note "NET USE" will also depend on the use of user names and password
You might have to use

NET USE T: \\PCName\ShareName "Password" /USER:UserName
