Q: Any Sky Go users here we need SKY to start using Edge

Hi there.
Just wondering if there are any SKY GO users here --I love it for UK football (Premier league on Sky sports).

However because it still uses Silverlite security one is forced to continue to use IE11 (although I believe there are some unofficial workarounds to get this stuff to work on Google Chrome).
The Android app works fine but you can't cast to an external screen (Mirroring gets disabled) so you are forced to use a browser on a PC for relly nice HD pics.

SKY don't even seem to realize that W10 even EXISTS - and that's using UK call centres - once you get transferred to an Indian call centre - then it's another whole Ball game : "What's SKY GO -- We don't have any information on that Service " !!!.

Can't understand the logic here -- a service people will legally sign up and PAY for puts so many obstacles in the way of legitimate users accessing the service compared with some "Pirate streams" which work instantly without any mega problem that I often use these "Alternative streams" even though I am quite happy paying for the legal service.

Cheers
jimbo

Preferred Solution: Any Sky Go users here we need SKY to start using Edge

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.)

Firstly, my home page is set up to open in Duckduckgo but it opens in Bing nevertheless. Microsoft Edge sets automatically its default search engine to Microsoft edge and does not allow to reset it to DUckduckgo. Secondly, even if I use Duckduckgo, Microsoft
Edge tracks my loggings. I keep deleting the logging but is there a way to remedy it? Is there enough users to file class action suit for violating users rights ( select engine and privacy issues). Some engines allow to clear all search history upon closing
the browser. Microsoft Edge does not provide this option. Although, Microsoft implies we are using Ducduckgo, they blatantly track us. Where the data go? To NSA?

I am looking for a way to set a default homepage in Edge, that is set initially to a custom homepage when users first launch Edge, but that is not enforced and allows them to change it, and then it is not changed back. For IE11 we use a group policy preference
that is set to run one time only and that works perfectly for this in IE11.
I am aware of the Administrative template GPO setting Microsoft Edge>Configure home pages, which does work to set the homepage in a enforced manner, but this does not allow users to change it.
I see many technet and other threads from 2015 with people trying to accomplish this, but none where someone actualaly found a way to do it, there seems be a set of protected registry keys don't don't allow you to change them and have it work. It seems very
odd that Edge is the latest and greatest Microsoft browser but that it lacks so many basic management features for customization.
Now that is is 2017 is anyone aware of a way to configure this in Edge using group policy preferences, registry keys, scripts etc? Anything that can be automated for a large number of Windows 10 systems?

Now Edge is not a browser I intend to use full time but was asked to try Netflix in it to figure out another problem, see my Netflix thread on that one.

Every time I go to open edge I get the blue window to come up and then everything for it closes down. Looking at task manager while this happens I see it jump from open app to background process to then fully closed, nothing listed in task manager.

Once in a while it stays open long enough that I can see the address bar and other of its UI elements start to render before it vanishes.

Started new thread because I could not find any that seemed to just deal with this problem since the November update.
Sorry if I missed one that would have been better to have used.

Hi.
Not sure if this will help, but you could try the steps in this article:

I can't answer your question in your Netflix thread, but I am curious if you are still having lockscreen issues after the November update? Because MS have fixed some settings issues and re-released it, so a patch should be available via Windows Update which should take you to 10586.14 from 10586.11.

A:Start Menu, Notifications, Edge not opening since latest update

Hi, the simplest approach, assuming it works- and it doesn't always, unfortunately.. would be to use system restore to return your PC to a point before the update.

I'd regard that as better than uninstalling the update, as we don't know what has happened.

First information: which update have you just applied? (The date doesn't necessarily define it).

If it works for you:
In Cortana's search field on the task bar, type Settings
Click Update... click update history and post a screenshot or your last couple of updates.

System Restore
Windows key + X, click Control Panel, type System in the search box, click Create a Restore point

In protection settings, if system restore is on your your C drive, then click System Restore and in the box that opens, Next.

This depends on you having enabled System Restore, and all hte above working on your broken Windows.

Is the folder that you added to the Start menu a shortcut to a folder or an actual New Folder? Folder shortcuts will not expand in the Start menu. They will only open in a new window.

I just got a netbook with windows 7 and am trying to set up accounts.
Basically, what I want to do is make it so that installed programs are instanced between users.
If I want X program to run when I log in (administrator), I don't want that program to run when any other users log in.
If I install a program (as admin under admin account), say Steam for example, I don't want that to show up in the start menu under other users, or to start on login for other users.

Is this possible?

A:W7; how to seperate start menu between users

Possible yes. For a program to automatically start you can create a scheduled task (see here http://www.associatedcontent.com/art...scheduler.html) and set it to run on login.

For restricted programs, just use Windows 7 Parental Controls (very good how-to here: http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/10524...-in-windows-7/)

Hello:

I'm using XP Pro SP3 and am creating a master image to deploy to over 100 computers.

1) During testing found that the start/search/for files or folders does nothing when clicked on by either a domain user or local user.
2) Search works fine from start menu with Domain admins or local admins.
3) Search works for users when opening 'My Computer' and clicking on the search button there.
4) Because search does work in 'My Computer', I thought a workaround would be to remove the search from the start menu using local group policy, but when I did this, then search no longer worked in 'My Computer'!!

Things I've done to try and fix this:

-removing the local user's local profile and having it rebuilt.
-copying the administrator's local profile to the users profile.
-restoring the operating system to default security settings using 'secedit /configure /cfg %windir%\repair\secsetup.inf /dbsecsetup.sdb /verbose'
-error checking C: drive with automatic fix and scan/recover bad sectors.
-re-installing srchasst.inf and re-registering search service service by using regsvr32 /i on srchui.dll, urlmon, jscript.
-searched the web and other forums.

A:start menu search will not run for users.

I have a problem with my search function. It can't be a microsoft problem, I've already searched within their advises. That was like a one of those phone calls you make that no matter what number they tell you to push it sends you on a loop. then hangs up on you. grrr.
The search button is right above RUN in my start programs menu. I click on it and nothing happens except that it freezes up all on it's own. Not to mention half my open windows.

And get this, I can no longer double click anything I have to right click and hit open on every file and folder. If I double click the search feature opens! Then it freezes.

You see? A loop.

I know the double clicking thing don't work because when I deleted winrar ALL my file extensions changed. To this day they still ain't right.

But I don't know why the search does what it does. I am assuming it could be that "someone" did some configuring in the registry so that I wouldn't be able to use it and find something I shouldn't have "accidentally".

I can take a snapshot of the values and dword(whatever that means) for you so you could see if it is proper or not.

Thanks

Okay I have been making User accounts for awhile but i have a question when it comes to this one. When I copy a user account I get the same groups and permissions. Okay fine and dandy. If not and I make a new user I only get the Domain\Users group then have to manually add in the other groups. Is there any way to change this functionality to add more groups on creation without resorting to copying?

This stems from the deny local login question I posted. I can deny login by a global group but then this means every new User ID HAS to be in that group or else it won't deny the new hires.

E.G. I set the local setting for the front desk PC's to deny log on locally for anyone who is in the Non-front desk global group. This means all users currently on our domain has to have this global group added to their user account except the ID's we want to log in. This also means all new creations should have this by default.

Hi

Wonder if anyone can advise. I stupidly got Windows Diagnostics malware on my PC. Thankfully managed to catch it before it did too much damage. However, after getting rid of it I appear to have a problem accessng my task manager and All Users Start Menu Icons.

I have managed to re-enable the task manager via the registry but I'm still unable to get the All Users Start Menu displaying via Start --> All Programs. The Start Menu for the Current User displays OK.

What appears to be the problem is that access to the All Users Start Menu folder under Documents and Settings is disabled somehow as all Subfolders and icons are 'greyed out'. or maybe because its calssed as a system folder. If I check the security tab for the folder all users, eg Administrator, Power Users, User, etc have the permissions I would expect but they too are greyed out. The ironic thing is if I use windows explorer I can access these folders and run the programs.

So at a bit of a loss to know how to re-enable these any advice would be gratefully accepted.

Thanks

Since installing the November Windows 10 update (11/17/15) none of my favorites are being stored in the default Edge folder. While in Edge the favorites are available but when I go to the default folder they are not listed. Is there another location they may be being saved or has my default location somehow been changed? My AppData folder shows a creation date of 11/17/15 with no modifications being made in favorites since that date.

I know that it is possible, but the program in question is utorrent. I could write a registry value to start it on boot but I think it'll start after winlogon. Would it be possible to make the program run before any user logs on?
 

A:Solved: Can a program start before users logs on?

oops can't help you there, utorrent is a torrent software so...
but FYI, most of the services in msconfig starts before logon.

Working with XP Pro here.

I used to be pretty much the only user of my PC ... but I will have some guests around for awhile, so I would like to set up other user accts.

I want to be the only user that has access to ALL programs.(my user acct already has admin privileges). I just want the basics for anyone else.

Other than going thru a tedious cut-copy-paste, drag/drop project between the "All Users" folder & each users folder .....

Is there a simpler way to accomplish this ?.

Better yet ... is there a bigger picture so to speak, that I should be looking into, that would accomplish this & provide peace of mind in other areas as well, such as limit access to files & folders elsewhere ?.

Doing something in Administrative Tools perhaps ?.

I would think having Pro vs Home would offer some advantage in this situation, but I'm not sure(that's why I'm asking).

The easier the better ... even if it requires a 3rd party program

Thanks for the help.

A:Doc & Settings - Users & Start Menu Items

I don't have XP pro but with what I know you can:
Create a limited account
Turn off its write permissions to folders like WINDOWS and Program Files and read permissions to other users.
Open Start menu folder and delete shortcuts
And to stop them changing system settings log onto that account and lock it up with Group Policy Editor - Start->Run->gpedit.msc (wish I had that in home edition lol)
Tweak it all to your liking.

Be careful not to change system wide restrictions in the group policy editor.

I work at a university with computer labs. I am wanting to deploy Windows 8 in my labs. The problem is that it isn't familiar to the average person. I would like to place common tiles on the Metro Start for all users. This is a domain environment. It is simple to place these apps on the desktop for all users, but that does not serve the purpose; being that most users probably won't even figure out how to navigate to the desktop. I have already found out how to place these apps for all users on the "All Apps" page, but not the Start page.

Thank You

Everything I have installed on the desktop has placed a tile/icon on the start screen.

The problem: All the shortcuts from “C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs” have disappeared from my start menu. The ones from C:\Documents and Settings\<current user>\Start Menu\Programs are still shown.
 
I have spent the weekend trying to fix this, to no avail, so hopefully someone can give me some new ideas.
 
I’m running XP SP3 on a Toshiba laptop. I can’t be sure exactly when this happened, but I noticed it on Friday, and I am 100% certain this problem did not exist the previous weekend. In that period of time the only software installs were an update for Keepass and an update for Mathcad. It is possible that something else notified me an update was available and I just installed it without thinking about it, but if so it would only be something like Java or Adobe flash.
 
If I go to “C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs” the shortcuts are all there, and they are not hidden, they just don’t appear on the start menu.
 
The obvious way to fix this was to just roll back to a recent restore point where the problem does not exist. Unfortunately, I could not get any restore point to work, even when doing the restore entirely in safe mode (i.e. start the restore in safe mode, and finish it in safe mode). After a lot of messing around I came to the conclusion that the restore point cache was corrupted. I confirmed that by turning System Restore off and back on to clear the c... Read more

Two questions about Windows 8.1:

1) When the computer starts up, the first screen displayed is a ?blocked screen?, an image, from which I proceed by pressing the space bar.
What?s the purpose of this step (other than delaying the start up process)? I don?t really grasp that, nor find it in the manual.

2) I need to set up several users for the computer, some with a password and some without one.
In previous versions of Windows the start up process first showed all of them, then I clicked on one and the process continued (asking for a password or not depending on who it was), and that was all.
Now, with W-8.1, two issues here: First, it seems to require that all users have passwords. And second, it first shows only one of the users (not always the same); I have to click on an arrow on the left to see them all (another delaying, useless step ?).
How can I set it up so as to have the quicker start up process of the previous versions, that is:
- that it skip the blocked screen step (unless it is really useful - my 1st question);
- that the first screen displayed show all the users;
- that some users may not require a password.

Thanks for any help.

A:Issue with blocked screen and users at start up

Well you'll save yourself a lot of grief if you'll install Classic Shell, that will bring back your start menu, turn off all the hot corners and allow you to boot to your desktop. To skip the lock screen takes a gpedit if your units are not running pro you won't have a Group Editor to edit with. There is probably a Registry edit to stop the lock screen.
With do not display the lock screen, you will boot right to logon screen user name and password. the straight to the desktop. I haven't looked at them tiles and other Metro crap in months.

This helps you with the first part of your questions, and may solve the 2nd part. I don't know the answer. I do think you could look through the group policy for a setting, though I have never looked for this!!

I'm configuring Windows 7 Enterprise for my office. I've gone through and installed all the programs. I then do the deal where I log in locally and copy my profile and make it the Default profile.

Anyway, when I log in using my profile (Domain Admin) no problems!
When i log in as a typical user (without admin rights) I don't see anything on the left side of the start menu (recent programs). I open Word, Excel, etc. but nothing is ever added to the recent\favorite program list.

I'm guessing it's a permissions issue but I can't seem to figure it out. Can someone help me out? Thanks!

Have a look at the answer given by Compumech on page 1 of this link :
Program Icons Missing in All Programs Menu

According to the replier, the key is to cut the programs down to 70.
Apparently it works for a few users in that thread. Please continue reading past page 1.

Don't hold me to it if this does not work.

I tried upping from recommended 250% to 350% for use of a genealogy program made that program larger but nothing else and if I use pinch to spread out and enlarge then screen impossible to work on because it just jumps from side to side I set everything back and restated and still the same display smaller than before.  I have Nvided GEForce 960M video card and right now laptop is useless.

A:Display on XPS Infiniti edge to edge now so small cannot read anything

I didn't even realize you could go that high.  When I tried 250%, some things became so large that it became impossible to click important buttons since there wasn't enough display area to present them.  It sounds like your genealogy program isn't scaling-aware.  Also note that in some cases, after changing the scaling setting, you need to log off and back onto Windows for the change to fully take effect.
Also, what version of Windows are you running?  The display scaling functionality has changed significantly with each release of Windows from Win7 on, including within the various releases of Windows 10.

I bought the brand new x1 carbon 6th gen about 1 month ago, 2 weeks ago I found the screen got a dead pixel on it and I asked for the service, they sent me a box and I returned it for the repair, when I got it back I was happy they replaced a new screen for me and the dead pixel is gone. However, when I start using it I found another problem, the screen is not fitted edge to edge, kind of like distorted, details show in pictures below:There is like a gap between the frame and the app iconsalso a black space there                   Then I have to call the customers service again for the help, they ask me to send it back to them again. It took about one week till today I get it back, however this gaps are still exist.  Should I call them again? Is there any ways that I can do a walk in to talk to the specialist face to face to point out the issues? Because I don't think they understand from my description.Please help.Thanks a lot.
