Internet Explorer format /appearance

Q: Internet Explorer format /appearance

I am using Internet Explorer 7 on a Windows XP operating system and recently (without prompt) the format/appearance of the web browser changed. Any web page that I access now appears as if I'm viewing it on a mobile phone and it is unbearable!
I have attached a screenshot of 'LinkedIn' to demonstrate how I view it. The site itself can be accessed at www.linkedin.com to see how it should look.
Can you please advise me how I can rectify this problem and prevent it from happening again?

Thanks in advance,

Preferred Solution: Internet Explorer format /appearance

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 just noticed that Internet Explorer has been saving all my pics in .BMP format. This means that all of the animated .GIFs i downloaded aren't animating anymore because they were saved as .BMP files.

Also the picture name changes to "untitled" in the "save as" window. What is wrong?

A:Internet Explorer keeps saving pics in .BMP format

Close IE. Go to Internet Options in Control Panel. Delete all your temp internet files.

i'm using internet explorer 11 with windows 10.
Q. What format can be specified with expires=<DATE> in the Set-Cookie field?

As a way to expire cookies, I have set the Set-Cookie expires date to a point in the past.

When I tested
The following formats are not supported
Set-Cookie: expires=Wed, 01-Jan-70 00:00:00 GMT

However, the following formats are supported.
Set-Cookis: expires=Wed, 01 Jan 1970 00:00:00 GMT
Thank you.

In Internet Explorer, I can't "Save Picture As" a .GIF file (or whatver it is). Internet Explorer only gives me a .BMP option.

I know Microsoft lists this as a known problem.

When I select Tools, Options, General tab and select the Delete Files button - my IE freezes up - it is too many files for it to handle.

If I go into the Temporary Internet Files directory and try to delete all the files, it freezes up my Windows Explorer. I have to delete the files one-by-one - this takes forver.

Any ideas?

Hi amigos..
anybody know how we can change the window corner like mac finder without the help of thirdparty themes instead of registy or something like that.

A:explorer appearance

Nopes, you cant change the default looks. You can only move the taskbar on all the sides, but the menu will remain the same. 
You need to use a third party application in order to achieve this. Arnav Sharma | http://arnavsharma.net/ Please remember to click ?Mark as Answer? on the post that helps you, and to click ?Unmark as Answer? if a marked post does not actually answer your question.

Can anyone tell me the right format for a Proxy Exception to cover a domain with subdomains?There are several examples covering the use of wildcards -
like this MS article:
The "Enter a wildcard at the beginning of an Internet address..." example does not cover the useage of subdomains :-(

Do I use\ set the proxy exception to "*.*.*.microsoft.com" or is "*.microsoft.com" enough to cover all the a.b.c subdomains?

/Tord Bergset

A:Internet Explorer Proxy Exception - Syntax format for covering subdomains?

As the document states,  using a wildcard at the beginning of an Internet address, IP address, or domain name to bypass servers
with a common ending. For example, use "*.example.com" to bypass any entries ending in ".example.com" (such as "some.example.com" and "www.example.com"). 

So I think *.microsoft.com is enough to cover all the subdomains.

Good day folks,

This has probably been touched on many times - but I mistakenly unpinned the Windows explorer icon from my taskbar. When I dragged the Windows Explorer icon from the desktop back to the taskbar it has a different appearance. Is there a way to get it to appear as it did originally? ie the yellow files (out of the box).


A:Windows explorer icon appearance changed when unpinned.

Try this.

1. Right click on explorer in the taskbar.
2. right click on the Windows explorer entry on the jumplist.
3. Select Properties.
4. Press Change Icon.
5. If the icon file showing is not %windir%\explorer.exe then browse to that file and select the first icon.

Upadate: On my system it is "C:\Windows\explorer.exe"

Another thought.

If you create the shortcut with the location of %windir%\explorer.exe it should pick everything up automatically.

I am sure this is simple but I can't figure it out. When I open my internet home page which happens to be MSN. It appears on my screen all to the right side of the screen. So the left side has nothing but the right side has the MSN. It doesn't even let the entire page appear because it is cut off. Does anybody know how I can resolve this appearance issue. I just purchased this new desk top computer and it has Windows 8 on it which is all new to me. But I know that change is painful and it is also inevitable so I will just continue working through the issues.

I have a Windows 7 laptop that was working fine yesterday. However, this morning when my daughter turned it on the taskbar suddenly started to look like the XP taskbar. I cannot get it to change back. However, the bigger problem is that the screen brightness is very low and the computer is not detecting the volume or Internet hardware. The controls to change the brightness and volume are not working. It is almost like the computer is in safe mode but it really isn't as I double checked to make sure that it did not accidentially get booted into it. I also ran a virus scan but it did not find anything. Any ideas of what the problem could be and how to fix it? The restore to prior day is also not working as I checked it in case I had to revert to resolve.

Hi, i am new at this, so bear with me lol

We have just moved our XP computer into the living room, and connected it to a 58kb dial-up connection. We installed AVG 8 and everything was running fine

Now we've installed Windows Live OneCare Family safety on the machine so we can monitor my borther and sisters internet usage.

Now, the computer runs extremely slowely, Windows Explorer continually crashes, meaning we have great difficulty opening My Documents, and My Computer or anything that requires Explorer to open

As well as this, now the internet is majorly slow... even for bloomin dial-up, we used to get at least 9kbps, but now its shot down to between 2.5 and 1.5 kbps

AVG is now continuously scanning... even outside of scheduled scans, and constantly wants to update :S

And finally, i have now noticed that small files i dont use very frequently have begun to dissapear from the system!!! music files, images, word docs etc.

We have tried defragging it, scandisk, using AdAware SE Personal 2005, AVG Scans, and they all come up with negligeable results.

As well as this, now the pc wont install files for Trend Micro Online scans to run... so we cant even work it out that way :S

I have a suspicion this could be something to do with OneCare, or Multiple Viruses in the system that have somehow hidden themselves from AVG

Since then, I have been unable to open my computer in windows explorer when the hard drive is present in the system.

I don't have a clue how I might go about getting my hard drive running again as i can't even get to it to start formatting it again. I don't mind about the data on it so an extreme solution is acceptable.

Any ideas?

Hi everyone,

I recently accidentally formatted a hard drive. So, I quickly install a file recovery software (EaseUS Data Recovery). Then the result shows that most of SWF files are big in size. I think that lots of my files have been converted or combine with other files. So, how do I recover my files?

This may not be the best answer, but I would recover the files first. That is you biggest concern right now. Then try to see what you need to do to fix them.

When I connect to my enterprises network, for some reason it downgraded my version of Internet Explorer 11 to Internet Explorer 7. It doesn't do this on my home network or on any other network I have connected to, only my enterprises network.
I have contacted my ICT department to see if they can solve this issue, and they don't know how to fix this issue.
I used the website https://supportdetails.com to check the details of my browser and what other websites detect it as, and it detects it as Internet Explorer 7 for some strange reason. When I check the actual version of Internet Explorer
by going to the Tools button and then About Internet Explorer, it says I am using Internet Explorer 11.0.9600.18763.
I am running Windows RT 8.1 which might be the reason as to why other websites/services detect my browser as IE 7, as other devices such as the Surface Pro 3, iPad and other laptops all work fine.
If there is a way to make my device be detected as Internet Explorer 11 and not 7, that would be great.

I use a program called SnagIt to capture screenshots, the program has a native file format called SNAG, this is similar to what a PSD is to Photoshop. Is there any way to setup Windows explorer to recognize this file format is being an image file (similar to a JPEG or GIF)?

In Windows explorer you can see a thumbnail preview of these types of images, I'd like to have explorer do the same for the SNAG file format. Is this possible?

So it'll preview SNAG files like this:

A:Adding unrecognized image files format to windows explorer preview

What version of SnagIt are you using?? There is usually an 'Output Options' tab that will allow you to change the default file type, to jpeg for example.

OK, very frustrated to say the least. Got the Vundo virus and downloaded Spynomore to get rid of it. (First mistake) After running Spynomore, could no longer connect to Internet via cable modem. After trying a reinstall of Windows XP, turning off firewalls, running all of the utilities suggested on the web, etc. decided to reformat the drive today and reinstall OS. Just installed drivers for two network adaptors (Broadband NetXtreme and DLine DGE-530T and STILL cannot connect to Internet via cable modem. Using same cable and modem on my laptop now, so I know that is not the problem. I get the limited or no connectivity and when I try to manually renew it says it cannot connect to DHCP server. What in the world could be happening if the this is a fresh install of everything? On both network cards?
