Q: Can i move the X window close button to the bottom of the window?

Hi,

This may sound stupid but i need to relocate the window close and resize buttons to the lower part of the window instead of the top so i can move the window to the upper part all the way up and it doesnt bounce back. Is it possible?

Thank you.

Preferred Solution: Can i move the X window close button to the bottom of the window?

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 cannot move, resize, or close any window I open.

It does not matter if I open internet explorer, the calculator, my computer, my documents, etc. I cannot resize, move, or close it. I have to open task manager and select "End Task" on the windows I want to close, but then I cannot close the task manager. I have to restart to close the task manager.

This just started happening the morning of 7/13. I did a system restore to 7/10, and this did not fix the problem.

Can anyone offer me some assistance with this?

New here, looking forward to reading through some of the threads here and learning more about Windows 7.

I've been running RC1 since it became available, and recently I've added 2 other user accounts on my main PC. These 2 accounts seem to have the same problem: neither of them allow you to "x-out" of a window by clicking the red X up in the right hand corner to close the window.

It's quite an annoying problem, and I can't seem to word the problem just right to get an answer from Google. Hoping somebody here can point me in the right direction.

Thanks!

Hey everyone!

I was playing around with some other themes but didn't really like any of them so I'm back with the default(ish) theme.

The only problem is that when the program I was using tried to reset the theme back to default, it made the button to close the window the same size as the minimise and restore buttons:

One of the forever most annoying things about Windows, is that if a program stalls and you want to kill it, clicking the 'x' button for closing the window, actually does nothing.

Is there a way to make this button forcibly kill the process, without having the wait ages for the "This program appears to have stopped working" prompt? (or just make it immediately open up that prompt, if the program doesn't kill itself within a couple of seconds?)

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???

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 am running Windows XP Pro SP3

I've run everything, including combofix

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.

Hi there,
We are developing an application integration between Oracle EBS 12.2 and Cybersource(Payment Processing Tokenization System).  So from our EBS 12.2 front end jsp, we are opening a window for users to add their credit card. Newly opened window is being

the user go back to front end Page.

Above functionality is working fine in Firefox and Chrome but it does not work in IE.  Here is the javascript code which we are running in pop up page:

Let me see if I can explain this so you guys can understand what my problem is.

Lets say I have just clicked on the Internet explorer and the window opened up just like it is suppose to do. Now lets say that you want to close that Explorer window.

What I have done for many many years all I have ever done was click on that red "X" in the upper right hand corner of the window and the window has always just went away or closed.

Now for some reason it won't do that anymore. Now if I move my mouse arrow to that red "X" and click on it the window stays open.

The windows will stay open as long as I leave my mouse arrow right on that red "X" . as soon as I move my mouse arrow off of the red "X" then and ONLY then will that window close!


Any suggestions guys? I have been coming to this fourm for a long time and also have been to others also. This is THE ONLY one that has helped me EVERY time.

So I guess this fourm has the BEST members. This fourm has helped me fix EVERY problem I have EVER asked about. I hope it will be the same this time.

Hi. New here. I have the most aggravating problem, and haven't been able to find a solution online.

When I select New Window in IE8, a new window opens on top, is given the focus, but then the current window moves in front of it, leaving the active new window on the bottom.

I should mention that recently I have occasionally been getting a security warning something to the effect of "IE has disabled [prevented] cross site-scripting". I never looked into it as the pages appear normal.

My security is MedHigh. I use the IE popup blocker. The only thing I have tried is under Security, enabling Navigate windows and frames across domains. It didn't help. Any ideas?

Thank you in advance, Dave

Dear Brains,

On the other Windows PCs I've used, there has always been a small thumbnail at the bottom of the window showing details of the item/photo selected, but with Window 8, this is missing.

Some details are there, but they are not easy to take in at a glance and I really miss the thumbnail preview. Also, and this is really annoying - the details don't state the size of videos. I'm not going to rundown Windows yet again, as I'm hoping I'm missing something simple.

Is there a way to get this feature back? I've worked hard to make 8 useable, but this little, yet much missed, detail eludes me. Although I'm sure more annoyances will come along .

This problem has occurred in other windows from time to time also.

Starting to convert from XP to 7 and want to keep as much of the XP style as possible. Already changed 7 to the classic format. If I minimize a Window, how can I get it to become a rectangular bar in the bottom task bar like in XP? I could have 4 or 5 of these bars down there and maximize them with one click in XP. Now I see in 7 that they are all in one single button on the bottom left so I have to click on the button, then click again on the Window I want. And I never know what is running unless I click that button. Starting to dislike 7. ARRGGH!

A:How can I minimize a Window to the bottom Taskbar separately?

That's the way it is in 7. If you had not tampered with the system, you would see all windows open by just hovering over the icon in the taskbar and you can open that window by clicking right there.

But you can get someting similar to XP if you make this setting.

When I have more than 1 IE window open, the icon for that window that used to appear in the bottom bar (the one with the clock) is no longer there, but rather is "behind" the open window (above the status bar).

If I click on a .txt document. Notepad.exe will open under all other windows open. If each window is on its own layer (can be seen as overlapping windows), then it would be inserted at Layer 0, or the bottom of the stack. I want it inserted at the top of the stack at 'Layer "whatever-would-be-front".'

I guess it depends how a program works, if the program forks a new process (like "Browse file system" to find a file) it doesn't necessarily open underneath all other windows. If I am running AutoCAD and try to PDF a file, the separate Acrobat driver causes this to open underneath all other windows open. So I'm sitting there waiting and actually the processing has completed and waiting for me to input more information.

A seemingly important hint of what is going on is this does NOT happen from the start menu. Any program started from the "Pin to Start Menu" area or "All programs" are brought to the front.

Any programs started from the Desktop, Taskbar, or essentially, Windows Explorer start at the bottom of all other windows.

Hi. Things are really jammed on my Lenovo Laptop (with Windows Vista). Yesterday I downloaded a font from a "free"-font website. I followed their instructions but I must have done something wrong. Because the result is that my Windows/Font window is stuck on the screen. I can't close it, or minimize it or do anything with it. The other windows that I had previously minimized down to the bottom bar are stuck, too. I can't shut the computer down properly, or reboot properly. Here's what I was doing when this happened. I had downloaded the new font folder to C:\Windows\Temp. To get this folder to Windows\Font I dragged it from Windows\Temp to Windows\Font. When I let up off the mouse button, a one inch vertical line appeared there and everything froze. I can access all the programs that are on the desktop, and I was able to get online to contact you. But other than that it's froze-up. My husband said hit the Escape button, but I don't want to try anything until I hear from you. Besides, I don't really know what the Escape button does. THANX!

Now, whenever I turn the computer on and after it's loaded the software etc. and is ready to go, I get the small popup message in the centre of the screen 'windows is trying to close the webpage continue/cancel?' or something like that. Never had this before and I would like to know what it is and how to get rid.

Many thanks,
Nicholas

A:The window is trying to close the webpage?

Hi .What version of java are you running?From what I see...appears to be some sort of scripting problem (too deep for me to understand/analyze).My WAG would be to check all startup entries and see if any relate to webpages, using AutoRuns for Windows - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinte...s/bb963902.aspx Look at the Logon tab only.Louis

I am trying to get rid of an empty window that I can minimize but cannot get to close. All that appears is a white window, and will not go away even if I do a system restore. If I left click on the mouse it will act as if nothing is there. The window is in the center of the screen at all times. Like I said I can minimize it if I have another window open but when it is on the desktop it covers the center of the screen.
Thanks for any tips you may give.

Whenever I am playing games on my computer that have Java applets, after a while the system starts bogging down and often hangs or freezes up. When I try to shut down the computer, I get a popup saying "theAwttoolkitwindow needs to close" with an option to end now or cancel. I push "end now" and usually another popup of the same thing comes up two or three times. Often I get one saying "IE not responding". What is my problem and how can I fix it. I've tried for days to find the answer to this.

New laptop Toshiba P205D-S7454 win vista
Today I tried to close page by clicking X upper right but it only minimizes as if clicking the middle of the three.
If I click the x it will reduce this page to half but if the x is clicked again I hear a ding sound, but nothing closes

I'm hoping to find some help on how to correct an issue with IE 7.
I receently downloaded and installed IE 7 and most times when I close the browser window the link goes to about:blank then i get IE box - internet explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience, it generates an error report and prompts are to send error report or don't send. This only happens when closing the browser and occasionally will happen when closing a single tab which then causes the whole window to close. Anyway i did find out this happens with tabs enabled and disabled. I'm running windows xp sp3. If anyone has knowledge on how to correct this i sure do welcome your ideas. Never had this happen with IE 6. Bye for now!
