"Play To" option missing in Windows 8.1

Q: "Play To" option missing in Windows 8.1

I've noticed that I no longer have the Play To option for media files on my Windows 8.1 machine. I have 2 digital media renderers active on my network, a WDTV Live and an Xbox 360. Both of these devices are visible on the network from the Windows 8.1 machine.

On 4 other Windows 7 systems in my house the Play To option is there, and I used to have it on this 8.1 machine, too. I've tried restarting but the option is still missing.

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 all
Previously the  "Save Picture"  box would put a web generated title in the box and automatically selected JPEG.  Now the title box reads "untitled" and the only file options offered are "png" & "bmp" 

Please note that a similar post has appeared, but the solution did not match the fault.  I'm seeking to restore the automatic response to save picture, that might have been upset by antivirus clean-up programme.

Thank youin advance for considering my problem

For no apparent reason, the function "include in library" in Windows Explorer (right click on a folder to include it in a library) is not longer there. It used to be. But now when I right click on a folder in Windows Explorer, it's simply not there anymore. Does anybody know how to restore it?
Or alternatively: does anybody know how to add music files to Playlists in Windows Mediaplayer without having to use libraries (like in previous versions of Windows)?

Hi, new to this forum.
Windows live mail in windows 7 home preminum 64 bit has left the option of creating a new contact group from its drop down list. Here is what I have done to correct problem. Going to c:\users\uername\contacts and than right clicking on blank white space and selecting customize folder\customize and clicking drop down arrow. On the drop down list there is no "contacts" option. This procedure came from a several forums that I have visited. So the next step I did was to make sure that windows live mail was my default,and it was. I than tried and made windows contact my default. The results did not help. Been working on this off and on for four days. Sure could use some help.

The issue should be caused by damaged or incorrect registry key entry. Please check the following registry value:

1. Click Start, type regedit in Search Bar, and then click regedit in the Programs list.

Hi,

When our website users click on an html attachment embedded on a web-page in IE9, the download manager will not display the "Open" option. It will only display "Save" and "Cancel" which our users don't like, having to save the
html document in a folder to open it. Whereas, when downloading attachments like pdf, word etc. all three options are displayed. 

Is there any setting to tweak , which will display all the 3 options for HTML attachments as well?

A:IE9 download manager will not display "Open" option (only "Save" and "Cancel" is displayed) for downloading HTML documents.

Hi,
As you know, the Open-Save-Cancel dialog box helps you prevent your computer from affecting by virus while downloading. 
So I suggest you test to reset all zones to a lower level temporarily and then please attempt to download this html attachment again.

However, since you can normally download the other documents, I suspect there is some restriction in the website which you are trying to view. I recommend you to contact the administrator of that website if possible.
could you please send me the link of the website from where you are trying to download the html attachment?
Thanks!

Ok, so that may sound weird, but i'm trying to figure it out, let me walk you through my network:
1 PC, 1 Laptop, and 1 Samsung SmartTV
So, I have most of my movies on the PC, I can access them from the TV smart hub, or just right click on the file on the PC and "Play To"; it all looks good.
Except for certain files when I try to use "Play To" on them i get the "Failed to retrieve media information from media server"; and i can't see these files/folders from my TV menu, so far, it could be a problem with the file itself.

Here's where it gets weird; when i move the file to my laptop, and I try doing the exact same, it works like charm.

Please note that:
My PC runs Win7 Ultimate - 32 bit with 2 GB of ram
and Laptop runs Win7 Ultimate - 64x with 4 GB of ram, though i don't think it makes a difference.

Any ideas?

First things first, thanks to all who can help.....





I need to programmatically make some adjustments to the Internet Explorer security settings. Most of these settings I have found but there are a few I have not been able to get a clear exact location for in the registry. I will be using a .BAT file to make
the adjustments on 100+ PCs.





Here is what I am looking for.....





Under the "Internet  Properties" found in control panel, under the "Privacy" tab there is an "Advanced" option button. When I click on it I get an "Advance Privacy Settings" options box. On it are several settings.
The first setting, "Override automatic cookie handling" needs to be checked in order to access the other options. I can do that by adjusting the DWord value of "PrivacyAdvanced" under the "Internet Settings" key in the registry,
"HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet settings", to be specific.





What I have not been able to find are the registry entries for the "First-party Cookies" "Accept, Block, or Prompt" options, the "Third-party Cookies" "Accept, Block, or Prompt" options, and the "Always allow

Right *deep breath*

The first thing that went wrong with my computer was to do with Mcafee On access scan. A week or so ago the little "V" sign stopped appaering in the system tray. Also, when I start the computer the red box that says "welcome to Mcafee" and which version you're running and stuff stopped appearing. I accessed the on access scan through program files and it told me that the on access scanner was enabled and working so I wasn't too fussed that it didn't appear.

Now, yesterday my computer went weird. The "run" option on the start menu disappeared and so did the "Turn Off Computer" red button. Both of them just disappeared. Task manager was also unavailable. When I pressed Ctrl, Alt and delete a box just popped up and said something like "task manager has been disabled by your administrator". I ran Virus Scan, Ad Aware, Spware blaster and Spybot Search and destroy. They all found various stuff on my computer and I got rid of it. After I did that Task Manager worked again, Which was good. However the "turn off computer" and "run" were still missing from the start menu.

This problem is simly driving me crazy.

here is the problem as direct as possible...

I have an Asus K8V mobo(standard)

On this board there is 2 controller that can use the SATA interface.

One is branded VIA and work flawesly and the other one is from Promise. (376 here)

But i have more then 2 sata device wich mean i need to run the promise controller in IDE mode.. or whatever its called (none-raid)

1 DVD burner sata, 1 HDD sata are on the Via controller. (what ever is plugged there work)

I now need to use the Promise controller in IDE MODE but there is no way i can do this since i dont have the option "operating mode : ide mode" in my advenced option from the bios...

It looks like i'm lock in raid mode. Sometime i just wish RAID never existed in the PC world.

I'm really about to give up on that since i must have wasted a considerable amount of time on that..

I can't see that option in IE8. Can anyone help me get that option back?

thnx

I Uninstalled IE8 as it was too buggy. Have a look at your Add ons it might be disabled . In IE7 you would access this via Tools

Hello Amunptah, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Could you right click on the file, click on Properties, click on the General tab, then post a screenshot of it?Screenshots and Files - Upload and Post in Seven Forums
This will help us know what file type this is happening with, and what the issue may be.

For now, you might see if this may help to restore "Open with".

my machine is bootable and WIN7 starts without any problems.
My Problem is I'd like create "System Reserved" to boot from this partition using F8 key and "Repair your computer" instead of booting from the CD boot disk.

I've already tried to boot with a Windows Repair CD, I've done "Startup Repair", but "System Reserved" won't be created.

I can create this partition manually, but how to configure WIN7 to boot from this partition using F8 key?

A:"Repair your computer" option using F8 key is missing

Having System Recovery Options on F8 Advanced Boot Options is not dependent upon having the System Reserved partition, as it's file is actually on C. You can try to rewrite it's link to F8 by running Startup Repair - Run up to 3 Separate Times after making sure C is the Active partition: Partition - Mark as Active. This is why we use Startup Repair x3 instead of only bootrec commands since it includes rewriting the F8 WinRE link.

You'd need to create System Reserved during the install, by deleting all partitions using the Drive Options in Steps 7 and 8 of Clean Install Windows 7.

To create it now is a PITA, but can be done. There is absolutely no reason to do this other than as an experiment to see if WinRE link can be restored to F8 when other methods fail:

Back up a System Image of C first. Your files should always be backed up externallly anyway.

Shrink C from the left by 200mb using Partition Wizard boot disk: Partition Wizard Resize Partition Video Help.

Create a Primary partition there using Partition Wizard Create Partition Video Help,

Mark Partition Active, Label it System Reserved.

Then boot into the Win7 installer or System Repair Disk to run Startup Repair - Run up to 3 Separate Times

If it doesn't move the System boot files as signified by the System flag to the new System Reserved partition, then unhide System Files in Control Panel>Folder Options>View and drag them there from C manually, run the 3 Startup Repairs again.

After trying to correctly partition my hard drives, I now no longer have the "Repair your computer" option in the Advanced Boot Options.

I have ran Startup Repair 3 times using my installation disk.

Here is my disk management options:


Any ideas?

A:"Repair your computer" option is missing

Did you remove the System Reserved partition?

That is where the repair data is held.

I am on a Windows 7 Professional SP1 system, running IE 11 (11.0.9600.19230C0, update version 11.0.101 (4483187).


When I have Internet explorer opened in "kiosk mode" on one monitor and I open a hyperlink from the other monitor it will open the link in a new IE window (non-full screen) .    If I do the same test with IE not in "kiosk mode"
the hyper link will open in the open window/tab. 

I have Internet Options -- Tab settings "Open links from other programs in"  set to "the current tab or window".  

Any ideas would be appreciated.
Thanks - Tim Reisner
