Window 10

Q: Window 10

So I have a Windows ten with 32 SDHC card. My computer data is full but now I can't clear anything out of the computer data, after I transfer the folders into my 32 data card. Now my computer will shut me out of the web because I don't have enough storage. Any ideas how to fix it? I already tried to reset it but doesn't have storage to do so

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.)

Hi,
Thanks for all the help. I want to make my shorcuts start programs and windows (In WIndows Xp Pro SP3) at a certain position and with a certain size.

For instance I want to open Excell at position 20,30 (x,y) with a window size of 750 x 200, or maybe a internet explorer window at position 129, 357 with a window size of 562 x 397.

I gave the odd numbers in the example so that people responding will understand that I want CUSTOM SIZES. I know how to set the shortcuts to start maximized and minimized and also window tiling. That's not what I'm talking about. Does anyone know of shortcut switch that I can use?

For instance in some games if you want to start the game with cheats enabled, you put "-devmode" after the directory path in the "target" box of the shortcut properties.

Is there any other way?

There is an awesome program called "Montage3"

which I use, but isn't exactly what I'm looking for. Please help out.

Been messing with this for days. When I open the Control Panel I do not have the option to switch the view on the left side pane. All that is there is the See Also window. I went to view, Toolbar, Customize and added the views icon to the toolbar. As long as I keep the customize toolbar box open and move it up or down I can see it on the toolbar. Once I close the Customize Toolbar window the view icon grays out on the tool bar. My back button is the same way. I checked in another users window and the control panel is fine.

i couldnt think of how to describe it for the title easily and I am about to go home to maybe tomorrow I will work it out.

My Vista box is currently demonstrating curious behaviour. When I open IE7 I select a favorite and it opens a new window with that favorite in it. If I do a search with my default provider in the original window, the search results appear in a new tab in the second window.

The second window does not display this behaviour. It works normally with my standard settings - open favorites in the current tab.

Again, favorites chosen in the first window continue to appear in the second window. Search results too.

Running IE7 in safe mode stops this behaviour but I have not installed any new software and I have removed all my temporary internet files/addon settings etc.

Any ideas would be great. Funny old game eh

Hi Everyone,

I am not sure which Windows update caused this, but ever since that download, whenever I close a window, the little blue disc keeps turning until the window DOES finally close. (Hope you understand what I'm saying.) This happens after closing EACH window, ALL the time.

Essentially, it takes a few extra secs for the closed window to really close. It's irritating/frustrating because I don't know how to fix it. I've put as much of my comp's info in my profile as I know or could find. Have been working with comps for six or so years. Not a total dummy, help alot of friends , and always reaching to learn more.

Have never seen this problem anywhere or it would be fixed by now, lol Can't STAND the waiting it causes til I can move onto something else.

Any suggestions?? PLEASE???

Hi,

I am using Windows Internet Explorer XP - Version 6.0.2900.2180.xpsp_sp2_rtm.040803_2158.

Recently I've noticed that I cannot view in full screen anymore. Let me explain. I created a website that lets a user enter their name and social # and then choose a test in 1 of 3 languages. Once you choose a language, a new browser window opens and the test/information is displayed in this new window.

Since end of last year, it worked correctly. A new browser window would open and it would be in full screen mode. You could NOT see the very top of the page - where it gives you the page title, and the options to close the window, or minimize/expand it.

Now, all of a sudden, it displays all that information - title, close option etc. Does anyone know why this is? And how I can put it back to being full screen?

FYI - I think this may have something to do with a service pack upgrade within the last couple weeks but am not positive. Also, I know that lots of people were having issues with the Service Pack 2 and all the bugs.

Can anyone shed any light on this issue and what I can do to fix it?
Thanks.

When you move a pop up window too high the title/tool bar of the child window is hidden by the main window's tool bar/title bar. As a result the child window is stuck and can not be resized or moved back to the original position or any where you can see
the whole window. Though you can scroll the contents and all the window itself is stuck. The child window never gets the focus back. Unless you close the main window you can not get the child window back to its normal position.
Is there any way that you can move the whole window (not just the contents) back to its original location or maximize that inner window only. Any short cut to move the window only results in moving the main window not the child window. 
Thx.

After about 10 minutes of being booted up, my computer acts very strange:

If I have a window open - any window (i.e., any application), and I click on the X (upper-right-hand corner) to exit the application, the application ends, but the display does not go away. In other words, the application has in fact ended, but the window stays on the screen.

Similarly, if I merely minimize the application, the display stays on the screen, even though in fact the application has been minimized.

I would like to be able to open a new browser window in Firefox which would start at the identical location to the one that's open rather than opening at the home page.

In IE, File / New / Window works well for this purpose, and then if you wanted it to start at the Home Page, you could just run Explorer a second time.

It gives the flexibility of going off on other trails with the additional window, but still having the original window open. I'm not crazy about tabs which take up extra space in the browsing window. However, is there even a way to open a new tab at the same location as the current window? Maybe I'm missing the joy of tabs somehow and am stuck in my old way of thinking. Still, I would like to know if what I want is possible.

Thanks.

A:[SOLVED] Open new browse window at same location as current window

Hi I don't think that is an option but I understand what your after and this is the way I do it with keyboard short cuts of

Ctrl + C = copy (While holding down Ctrl tap the C key once)
Ctrl + V = paste
Ctrl + T = new tab
Ctrl + N = New page

OK starting with tabs which I think is the best thing since sliced bread. You have the page open that you want to start with go up to the URL at the top of the page (do it with this page) click only once on the URL this will highlight it or if you like to say select it.

Now to copy the URL Ctrl + C your computer will remember this link until you either copy something else or you shut down the computer.

Now we open a new tab Ctrl + T a new blank tab will open and the URL location is blank but with the cursor already in it so we paste the URL there by Ctrl + V and tap the enter key and you have the duplicate page

Now working with a new page there is just a couple of small differences.

You have the page open that you want to start with go up to the URL at the top of the page (once again do it with this page) click only once on the URL this will highlight it or if you like to say select it.

Now we open a new page with Ctrl + N a new page will open but the difference is it will not be blank it will be your home page so as there is already a URL that we want to get rid of. The simple way is to once again click on it only once to select it then paste the saved URL by Ctrl + V and tap the enter key and ... Read more

I have a Lenovo N580 laptop. Last week, I had to do a factory reset (with help from Lenovo Tech Support) because of compatibility problems with new software from my employer and windows 8.1 which is actually worse than windows 8. The compatibility problems caused my screen to go black. When booting, the Lenovo logo appeared and I had a cursor, but nothing else accept a black screen. I tried suggestions found here and the Lenovo help forum, but none worked and the factory reset was the last resort. Now I am back to using Windows 8 (this was actually the second factory reset due to other problems caused by win 8.1).

Anyway, everything is working (for now) and I also have Classic Shell installed. HOWEVER, before this second factory reset, when I had multiple windows open, aero peek worked fine. Now, it doesn't. I followed earlier suggestions of right clicking the taskbar, then clicking Properties, but the box for "Use Peek ..." is dimmed (grayed out) so I cannot check it to enable aero peek.

I got used to this feature in Win 7 and was glad to see it in Win 8, but it is the only feature about Win 8 and 8.1 that I like. Thanks for your help.

After reboot, Suprise!! My computer now sees all other computers on the network, "Browser" service is deleted, and "Computer Browser" service was created.

My surmize is that "SMB" was an option in Windows 8 but not required and not loaded. Therefore when Microsoft upgraded my machine to Windows 10 they did not load "SMB" program.

Hello,
I am running into an issue where I can open a window/program with my mouse however once the window is open I cannot click inside of it. The window becomes inactive. I also have noticed I cannot right click on my desktop to bring up the properties. I can right click on the window in the task bar to close it but not in the window.

Since this is happening I am limited to command prompt. I ran sfc /scannow with no errors. I tried with 3 different mice. I booted the computer into safe mode with command prompt and brought up the device manager to show devices not in use, and when the device manager window opened I could click inside it! since I could use the window I uninstalled all mouse drivers, and reinstalled my microsoft wireless usb mouse driver.. while in this safe mode I changed my mouse properties to system default as I read somewhere that can reset things.

Next I booted the computer in safe mode (without command prompt) and still the same thing. I was trying to do a restore point as well however my Kaspersky antivirus 2012 is preventing that as i cannot find a way to kill the program through command prompt.

Now I have no clue what to do! If anyone can help I would appreciate it! either a way to disable kaspersky so i can try a restore or another idea for getting my mouse to work as i really do not want to reformat..

Thanks in advance

First when not able to run the System Restore feature while in Windows the fast alternative is simply booting up from the 7 dvd if you have one and going into the repair tools where the options for using the feature is there along with restoring a full system image backup. You simply use a restore point while booted live from disk.

If you don't have a 7 dvd to boot from the option to burn a repair cd is found in the Control Panel>Backup & Restore section or available at Neosmart Technologies. Windows 7 Repair and Recovery CD Download | The NeoSmart Files

There you would still need to see the disk image burned to a blank cd-r first in order to boot from the new cd. The other tool besides the System File Checker you can try would be the Disk Check tool you can schedule to run from a command prompt since you likely wouldn't be able to right click on the C drive icon to bring up properties>Tools and click on the Check now button under Error checking.

Typing "chkdsk /r" and pressing enter should see a message asking to schedule it for the next startup you answer with a Y for yes or N for no. This can help with any errors on the drive to help to some extent getting Windows to run normally. If the problems however are too severe the option to see a Repair Install or performing a full Clean Install (last resort) would have to be considered.

I am having an annoying problem with my IE.I'm using IE 7 and from 4 days ago, everytime I open IE or a new tab I got the annoying stuff:Insecure Internet activity. Threat of virus attackDue to insecure Internet browsing your PC can easily get infected with viruses, worms and trojans without your knowledge, and that can lead to system slowdown, freezes and crashes.Also insecure Internet activity can result in revealing your personal information.To get full advanced real-time protection for PC and Internet activity, register KvmSecure. We recommend you to protect your PC now and continue safe Internet browsing. Click here to get full advanced real-time protection and continue browsing. Continue to this website unprotected (not recommended). I strongly believe this is merely because my IE has been infected so I did some research I was lead to this webpage http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/top...tml#entry840027 which shows how to solve the problem but it requires ComboFix and I did not even know what it was so I click on a link provided on that webpage and jumped to http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/combofix/how-to-use-combofix . I clearly understand it. But to what I understood, the webpage instructing how to use combofix only shows how to install window recovery console with a CD. However, I'm using Vista Home Premium and I have not such a CD. Instead there's a driver on my computer called HP_RECOVERY (F:) which had been already installed on my laptop when I bought it. I'...

I have a set of scheduled tasks, all of which run programs written in Open Object REXX. Consequently, the Command Prompt windows where these tasks runs inherit their icons (at the top left of the window) from the rexx.exe program that handles my scripts.

This means that all of these REXX tasks display the same icon in the taskbar, or system area, which is unhelpful.

I doubt that there's any way of influencing the icon from my REXX code itself, but is there some sort of wrapper program that I could run, which would allow me to choose different icons for each of the scheduled tasks? Perhaps by running my REXX from some program other than a Command Prompt window?

I'll also go and ask the REXX community, so we'll see who gets there first!

I realise that this is something of a long shot, but if I don't ask, I'll never get...

what do i do my window 7 has "this copy of window 7 is not genuine build 7600" and my system is slower than before.i used HIJACKTHIS software to scan it, please who can analyse it for me. the log file reads:Mod Edit: Removed malware log data, see No DDS, HijackThis, or ComboFix logs should be posted in this forum. - BleepingComputer.com - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/forum-56/announcement-45-no-dds-hijackthis-or-combofix-logs-should-be-posted-in-this-forum/ ~ Hamluis.

A:my window 7 has "this copy of window 7 is not genuine build 7600"

You need to provide basic information about the system manufacturer and model...what your problems are...when they began...any onscreen error messages, etc...if you really want someone to be able to guess at what might be wrong with your system.

"This copy of Windows 7 is not genuine" messages...occur for any number of reasons, none of them have anything to do with malware.

Simply put...reactivate Win 7, either online or via telephone.

Woke up like this.. what now?
 

Can't resize or right click and maximize

A:omg wtf aarggh! Cannot Intelligent figure this Window! How to resize/max window?

When I see something like that... and I have seen it too many times with IE(LOL!), I shut the computer off and re-start, which usually does the trick.  Does the problem still exist?  Were you last trying to download a program or do you think it happened from an auto-update?

I just got a new laptop with Windows 7, 64 bit system.
When I open an email...it opens correctly, but when I want to double click for the next window to open, I have to have toRIGHT click that window and instruct Windows to "Open to new Window".

Is there any global command that can activate this procedure automatically.
Thank you
Dieter
