Can't type in fields below the url pane - Explorer 8

Q: Can't type in fields below the url pane - Explorer 8

I'm not sure what to do here...

After downloading Explorer 8 (and updating Windows) I am unable to type in any field below the top pane. (I can type text just fine in my google search field and the url field)

I un-installed Explorer 8 (which re-installed Explorer 7) with no improvement.

I noticed that after completing the Windows update (I have Service Pack 3) my Anti Virus (Zone Alarm) had been blown away. I had to re-install it. I've since learned that I should disable anti-virus software prior to doing Windows updates.

Is this a virus?

Thanks.

Preferred Solution: Can't type in fields below the url pane - Explorer 8

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.)

When I open an instance of windows explorer, the navigation pane show little or nothing (no drives, folders, etc.). Also the preview pane does not show a preview for any selected files (See Capture1.JPG).
If I open a second (or higher) instance of windows explorer, the navigation pane functions properly (the preview still does not show) (See Capture2.JPG).
I have previews set to show (See Capture3.JPG).
Also occasionally, the file icons will be blank instead of showing the file type specific icon. When this happens, the address bar also seems to take a long time to load. The load bar will stop before reaching the end and won't finish (See Capture4.JPG).

Does anyone know what is going on or how to fix this?

FYI I am running 64 bit Windows 7 Pro.

A:Windows Explorer: Navigation Pane and Preview Pane Bug

Try Explorer++ and see if you get the same problem.

Need to enable "Folders" view.
If it works then you can rule out problems with system files and it's probably a buggy shell extension.

It's portable and runs without installation.

Let us know if navigation pane works using Explorer++

i have created a form in word, adn i want it to be read only for most of the form. However, i do want certain fields to allow users to type in. Is there any way that i can easily do this. i know that this may seem kind of vague, let me know if you need any other info.
 

A:MS Word; only type in certain fields

[edit]
Too bad there's not a strikethrough text format. Anyway, ignore the stuff in red.

This is a common question that has no easy answer. There is no way to permanently lock the text of a document while leaving the fields open. There are some workarounds, such as using a background graphic instead of body text.

I don't know what I was thinking about when I wrote that, but it wasn't forms. It might have been converting a PDF document to a protected Word form. Another of Dreamboat's articles.
[/edit]

If you search the forums for something like Word form protect text, you might get some hits. The question gets worded differently from time to time, so play around with the search criteria until you get a thread that works for you.

Here are a couple of similar threads (searching word form lock text):

One of our office computers won't allow the user to type into a search or log in field in IE. The mouse is not the issue, we changed it out, because we can click on links and click into the address bar. Ran AVG as well as AdAware both clean. When I tried to run HouseCall it tells me there is already a HouseCall running and shuts down. I can't run Panda because it asks for my e-mail address and I can't type into the field.

Hi there i have a bit of a PC issue that i am looking into.

When using internet explorer and a site for example ebay. It will only let me populate the Username Field, But when i try enter the password the field doesn't allow any data to be entered. This happens for other programs outwith Internet Explorer too.

The OS is Windows XP

What would cause this to happen?

Thanks
 

A:Unable to Type in some fields

Press Tab instead of enter when you want to move to a password or other field in a form. Pressing enter pretty much means that all fields are complete (like pressing "Send" or "Submit" yourself).

One of our office computers won't allow the user to type in the search fields or log in fields within IE on any website. Can't search on Google, Yahoo, can't log in on hotmail or other online applications that we use at work. In addition to this issue; when I open Control Panel I get a script error, the icons on Add/Remove Programs are very small with no description of what the icons represent and if I try to udate Windows it tells me that it needs to install addiotional files to update the system but it gets locked into a loop where it installs then tells me that it needs to install the same files. I can't run a Panda scan because it asks for my e-mail address and I can't type into the field. When trying to run a Kaspersky online scan it won't update the new virus definitions which is an automatic action. When I try to run HouseCall it tells me that there is another HouseCall running and closes the prgram. There is no indication in Task Manager of two HouseCalls running. Ewido found some problems corrected them but didn't fix my problem. Replaced the mouse and did a restart so those won't work. The computer was running fine one evening and when we came in the next day it was acting this way.

Is it possible to have no Nav Pane when opening a Desktop folder, but have Nav Pane when opening Win Explorer? Like it was in WinXp/Win98/Win95?

Hello,
 
My 8 year old son decided to download some Malware onto my computer while I was deployed the last few months.  Anyway Im running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit and am having issues entering text into IE 11.  I believe the issue stems from PUP.Optional.MindSpark.
 
Im pretty sure I removed MindSpark completely by using MalwareBytes, SuperAntiSpyware, and CCleaner to get rid of it.  I also have McAfee AntiVirus which didnt catch Mindspark.
 
So the problem now and when the PUP was on my computer is that I cannot enter text into text fields on IE 11.  Right now Im using Google Chrome and am having no issues with it, but I would like to get the IE 11 problem fixed.  Also as a note if I run IE 11 as an administrator it acts normal, but as soon as I close the browser and reopen it, it stops working again.  A couple of things I have done that wound up with no results include:  Restoring Internet options to default, turning off protected mode, and ran a Windows system performance scan.  Also Ive made sure everything on my computer has the latest and greatest updates.
 
So hopefully somebody here can help me out.
 
Thanks!

Hello, I use online accounting software (KashFlow) and part of entering invoices involves clicking into a date input field.  It is one of those where a little calendar shows when you click into the field.  You can also manually type a date into this field too. However. On my brand new Yoga 920 using Chrome and Firefox the date input fields are greyed out and a red 'no access' icon shows when you hover over them.  But you can still click it and the calendar pops up as normal.  The only difference is you can NOT type into them anymore. When the source for the page is viewed it looks like the fields have been designated 'readonly'. There is no such problem on any other computer I own, even when using Chrome or Firefox.  The date fields work perfectly well on these other computers - even on a Sony Xperia tablet I own. The only browser that works properly on my Yoga is Edge.  The date fields work as they should.  It's just Chrome (my main browser) and Firefox where they don't work. This seems like a Lenovo-based problem.  A little Google has revealed a couple of similar problems with other Lenovo users. Does anyone have any clue on how to fix this?  This is utterly bizarre behaviour and it's preventing me from working properly. I have attached a photo showing the problem when using Chrome.  These fields should never be greyed out. Thanks,Matt

I ran into an issue today using the desktop version of IE 11 where I can type text into the address bar but if I select a field on a web page, I am not able to type text into it. I normally use FireFox as my browser and it works fine (as does Chrome). If I bring up the Metro version of IE 11, I can enter text fine.

looking for a fix for this problem (cant remember exact wording) then Explorer.exe restarts. This happens on the local C drive and Network drives. 
I though it could be a permissions problem so have taken ownership of all files & folders on the C drive which made no difference, i have removed the laptop from our server / domain and it is still the same / no change.

The faulting module (Fault Module Name: SHELL32.dll) shell32.dll is a Windows system file however the file that is actually causing the crash may be a third party file which from the symptoms
may be a third party context menu handler.
The following link has some info and a download to ShellExView which you can use to selectively disable third party context menu handlers to find out a problematic one:
http://windowsxp.mvps.org/slowrightclick.htm
You could try disabling all non-Microsoft context menu handlers and then, if the problem resolves, re-enable them one at a time to see which one was the problem.

You know, I would really love a dual pane option for Explorer.Lots of times (most times) when managing my files, I want a source window and a destination window to drag the files between.  It's such a bore having to open Explorer twice.  Especially when you can't just click the Windows Explorer icon on the new Task Bar a second time, because that simply minimises the Explorer window you've just opened!Instead you have to right-click the icon and choose a different folder in the list.  The new Explorer window pops up over the first one, so then you have to drag the second window clear before you can use them.So now you have this silly sequence:    left-click; right-click, move-the-mouse, left-click; left-click-and-dragPLEASE give us some way of handling this better.  Either:1/ An optional dual-pane view for Explorer (like Director Opus, et al, offers)2/ A single click way of opening two, non-overlapping Explorer windows (my preferred option)Is there any chance at all of this, do you think?

I have received an e-mail response from the creator of Windows Double Explorer / Windows Dual Pane Explorer (names seem to be interchangeable) . My apologies for not knowing the proper terms, but I hope anyone will be able to understand what I’m about to describe.

According to information provided by the creator of WDE / WDPE one uninstalls the program by doing the following:

Navigate to C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs. There you should find a shortcut file (look for a file not a folder) named Windows Dual Pane Explorer. Select that shortcut file, options click and writedown the target path of the shortcut. Delete the shortcut. Navigate to the location the target path dictates. There you should find both a zipped and an unzipped folder of WDE / WDPE. Delete the folders and also any other shortcut files to WDE / WDPE that you may have created and you&#8217;re done.

Apparently WDE / WDPE is never actually installed. Instead WDE/WDPE initially downloads a folder named WDE Portable 0.3.7.0 zipped. When this download folder is launched it unzips another folder named WDE Portable 0.3.7.0 unzipped into the same directory. During the unzipping process a shortcut is created on the desktop that points back to the unzipped folder. Thusly WDE/WDPE never gets listed into Windows Control Panel&#8217;s Program Files & Features section. That&#8217;s why it can&#8217;t be uninstalled as one might ordinarily expe... Read more

Hi all,

I?m really in need of some help from some Access experts! I?m a newbie to Access, but I got myself busy with quite a big project... I?m trying to map out the product supply to shops in the whole country. I?ve come quite far for a starter, but I keep having 3 questions, it would be great if you could help me with this!

I have, amongst other tables, two tables called Stock_counted and Reported_quantity.

The table Stock_counted has the following fields:

- Product_code
- Quantity_counted

The table Reported_quantity has the following fields:
- Shop_number
- Product_code
- Quantity_in
- Quantity_lost_or_returned
- Quantity_out

1. What I would like to do is to make it one table based on Shop_number AND Product_code. So in one record I would like to have Shop_number, Product_code, Quantity_in, Quantity_lost_or_returned, Quantity_out and Quantity_counted. How do I do this, making sure that the quantities end up behind the right product and shop? It is possible that some shops don?t have all items, while other shops might not have all products reported, or both. On top of that, I have another table with a price for each product, which needs to be related to it as well.

2. It happens that some products are found more than once in one specific shop and therefore appear more than once in the table, with the same shop number and product code. How do I automatically SUM these quantities, so that this product only shows up once per shop?

When I was running the RC I did not have a desktop item, instead all the items sorting under Desktop in (the screenshot below) were on the same level as Favorites. There were Favorites and then a white space and then my Libraries and then a white space and then my Profile and then a white space and then Computer and then a white space and so on.

2) Can I remove the Homegroup and the Network icons?
3) Can I move the computer item upwards in the sort order?

Q3) Yes, you can remove Homegroup and Network from the navigation pane.Network - Add or Remove from Navigation Pane

Q4) Sorry, but you cannot move the groups themselves in the navigation pane.

Thanks in advance.

The Navigation Pane in explorer is rather cluttered. I want to remove the "Libraries," "Homegroup," and "Network" entries, but I am not sure how. Preferably without registry editing, but its okay if thats what it entails.

What is your reason for wanting them gone? Each has a unique set of uses. The "Libraries" is an excellent tool for viewing and organizing pictures and music files.

Have you attempted to remove them?

When they log back in their favorites (i.e. Desktop, Downloads) are hidden. I can go to show hidden files and unhide them but when they log out and back in they are hidden again.

Hello pcowanabbb,

Opening an elevated command prompt in that user account, and running the command below for any affected user folder should restore it's default attributes.

Hi!

I got a problem with the sidebar in windows explorer. Sometimes when i open it the only things that shows is the favorites, libraries and homegroup titles but non of the folders or links that are supposed to be there.



It stays like that for a while and then its back to normal (but only if/when i open a new explorer window). Im able to access e.g. the libraries when its like this but it looks like its searching for them but cant find them.


Help is very much appriciated
Thanks

It can take a while to load everything on various machines, depending on hardware and configuration.

If you don't want it to load all folders, ( which takes time);

Navigation Pane - Automatically expand to current folder[2]=File%20Folder%20Settings

there are other tutorials there on this and similar matters.

By the way, that window is known as the "Explorer Navigation Pane", "Sidebar" refers to something else.

Regards....Mike Connor

In Windows Explorer in the Desktop mode, there is a navigation pane on the left hand side. At the top, there is a spot for your favorite folders, so you can navigate directly to them easily. Below that are other sections, like "Homegroup" and "This PC." Whenever you open Windows Explorer, it automatically focuses on This PC in the navigation pane by default. Does anyone know of any way to get it to focus on Favorites by default, rather than This PC, without having to create a shortcut? I'd like it to do that even if I press Windows Key+E

Upgraded my Win 8 Pro to Win 8.1 Pro and problems started.

Now my File Explorer Navigation Pane Favorites feature is completely missing and cannot be restored, regardless of what I have tried.
I have tried:

1. File Explorer ribbon / View tab / Navigation Pane / Show Favorites = ON
2. Folder Options / General tab / Navigation Pane / Show favorites = ON (also have tried Restore Defaults)
3. Recreate "C:\Users\<my user name>\Links\" folder and create a link inside it.
4. Run the "fix_empty_favorites.reg" file
Favorites Empty in Navigation Pane - Fix - Windows 7 Help Forums

5. Run "Add_Favorites_to_Navigation_Pane.bat" file:
Favorites - Add or Remove from Navigation Pane in Windows 8

6. Manually restore Default Favorite Links :
Favorites - Restore Default Favorite Links in Navigation Pane - Windows 7 Help Forums

7. Ensure "{BFB9D5E0-C6A9-404C-B2B2-AE6DB6AF4968}" registry branch that is pointing to my proper Links folder as per :
User Folders - Restore Default Location - Windows 7 Help Forums

8. Remove/detach from Homegroup (don't need it).
Homegroup - Change File and Folder Sharing Settings - Windows 7 Help Forums

9. Added. Right click on the Navigation pane and Select "Show Favorites" to be ON.

... and of course, log out/login AND reboot multiple times after all of the above.

The Favorites will not appear on Navigation pane.

Any help, anyone?
