Windows 7 zoom feature.

Q: Windows 7 zoom feature.

Recently purchased an Acer 5733.

Why will my new higher zoom setting not remain as such, until I wish to reset.

It seems erratic from one web page to another, and often automatically returns to 100%.

Sometimes when I return to previous viewed web pages, the higher setting will have remained.

If I set at 125% I want it to stay there!!

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.

A:ZOOM FEATURE

First of all - Welcome to BC !
 
Can you give some details of these computers - make, model and so on - it gives us something to go on.
 
When you say 'the bottom of the page', do you mean the task bar on the desktop, or at the bottom inside one application or another?  I am not familiar with a zoom control on the task bar but a lot of applications, from image viewers through graphics software to MS Office, have a zoom function. But this almost always uniformly expands or shrinks the complete page, text and everything included. And, more to the point, the zoom control goes wherever the designer of the software decided to put it.

Hi,

I've been using XP Pro for a few years now. However, on my last re-install I left off ACDSee and was just going to use XP's own settings for viewing photos. I'm now using SP2.

I was certain that in the 'filmstrip' setting for photos there was a 'Zoom IN/OUT' option - am I wrong? I only have 4 buttons for:-

Previous Image
Next Image
Rotate Clockwise
Rotate Counter Clockwise

I'm using TweakUI + TweakXP Pro 4, I've checked everywhere but I can't find anywhere that the zoom option has been unchecked? Is it there or can I enable it somehow?

Thanks
 

A:Zoom feature in 'Filmstrip' of My Pictures?

I found this site:-

http://www.mdpublishing.com/MedicalDealer/BioMedToday/TechTips/04/Jul2.htm

It states here that:-

Another new WindowsXP applet is the Picture & Fax Viewer. To view files as you would in a slide show, just right-click on any graphics file and select "Preview". The Viewer applet will open and the controls at the bottom allow you to navigate, zoom, copy, etc. This is a very quick and useful feature that is always available in Windows Explorer.

Sure enough, all the icons that I'm sure were always there appear in this window *but* I would like them there ALL the time when viewing in filmstrip mode - is it something simple I'm overlooking here?

Thanks

A:zoom feature in movie player??

Click to expand...

I believe you're talking about aspect ratio, not zoom. Most players have a place to set the aspect ratio, and some codecs have aspect ratio settings. On standard TV's and monitors, generally you use a 4:3 aspect ratio, on widescreens generally you use 16:9.
There are also different stretch settings offered by different software packages. Cyberlink PowerDVD offers CLPV stretching while other software packages have different pixel stretching or doubling techniques, these stretching techniques can have a large impact on the video viewing quality.

I bought a E520. I am not liking the touchpad on this thing. It hangs up and does not respond a lot of times. The biggest thing that irks me is that my screen will zoom in and out when I run my finger along the touchpad or when tapping it. I know you can use the "pinch" with two fingers to zoom in and out but mine will zoom with just a tap of one finger. Someone must know how to disable the zoom feature. Can you describe in detail to me how to do that? I called Lenovo support about it and the guy said it might be a software or hardware problem and told me to take it into a repair facility. There must be a way in settings to turn that off. I just want the touchpad to work normally, as in move the cursor around.. thats it, nothing more. Can someone help me with this??

I have an HP dv3 laptop with a synaptics touchpad. Swiping the left edge of the touch pad causes programs which have a zoom capability to zoom in and out. There is no documentation from HP or Synaptics or Microsoft that I have been able to find which even acknowledges that this feature even exists. I would like to turn the feature off because I keep activating it by accident, but I cannot find a setting anywhere. Perhaps there is a registry setting I can change?

A:Want to disable left edge zoom feature

Some additional information: the pointer becomes the crossed lines with arrows that I associate with Move during the swipe and then after the release the shrinking circle occurs as if I had pressed the CTRL key to locate the cursor. The advertised way of doing a zoom with the keypad is to hold the CTRL key and swipe the right edge.

Hi,
Does anyone know how to manipulate the modern UI zoom feature in windows 8.1 ? This either by script or by regkeys?

Some more details about the problem I have :
14"laptop with Full HD monitor (1080p) -> windows decides that de default zoom behaviour should be 150%...

Now I have found how to counter it in the desktop and desktop Application (add regkey : DesktopDPIOverride) there I can set the value to -2 and it will be 100% zoom and the user can still change it.
Now the ModernUI and Lockscreen (not start screen) don't follow this zoom. To change this you need to go to pc settings - pc and device - display. and there at the bottom you can change the zoom from default to smaller. What I would like is to modify this
behaviour so that the default becomes what It should be small. (the default value it has when you have a 700p pannel of the same size)
This is quite urgent and I hope someone got an answer on this... I hate how windows forces a laptop to look like a tablet :/
Thank you !

I heard that Windows 8 includes a new feature called Semantic zoom. Is it possible to play with this feature if I install Windows 8 Ultimate and by using mouse keys.

I want to know whether this zoom feature only works with touch devices.

A:Semantic zoom in Windows 8

Hello Windowsguy, and welcome to Eight Forums.

Not sure mouse keys would work with Semantic Zoom.

The Semantic Zoom interaction is performed with the pinch and stretch gestures (moving the fingers farther apart zooms in and moving them closer together zooms out), or by holding the Ctrl key down while scrolling the mouse scroll wheel, or by holding the Ctrl key down (with the Shift key, if no numeric keypad is available) and pressing the plus (+) or minus (-) key.

If you like, the links below can help give more details and information about Semantic Zoom.

I'm running a Toshiba 1905-S301 laptop (2 gig speed, 1 gig mem, 300 gig hd) with Windows 7 (32 bit) I thought I'd try the Zoom 4411 wireless-n USB adapter. It works great and I have the advertised transfer speed (54) for using on a USB 1.1 port.

My problem happens when I shut down Windows when the adapter is plugged in. A few seconds after the normal shutdown sequence begins I get a blue screen showing a system minidump. It never goes into shutdown, but instead reboots and brings up Windows 7 again with the failure noted as an unexpected shutdown sequence. If I pull the adapter and then go for a shutdown the process takes longer than usual (over a minute vice 15 seconds), but it eventually completes the shutdown and doesn't reboot on its own. Nothing appears to not work after the reboot and I can reacquire a network connection with the Zoom device any time I want.

Booting and shutting down with the adapter never installed is normal. An interesting failure, but one I'd like to eliminate.

Hi,

Last night, somehow my zoom was changed. My start menu used to have only about 4 rows and now there are six rows and the tiles are now all much smaller. Generally everything is smaller and a new registry entry has appeared in


Code:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ImmersiveShell\Grid
Called 'Layout_MaximumAvailibleHeightCells' with a hexadecimal value of 6. I know this is something to do with my problem as I have seen a few tutorials on changing the amount of rows. If I change it, it reverts back to 6 again when I log in to my account. I have tried changing the resolution, but it was the same before the sizes changed and as I have Eyefinity I can't put it down as that would make it repeat on all three screens, and the resolution is at its maximum. It is not to do with the 'Change the size of all items'. It applies the login screen as well.

TL;DR Everything is smaller, and nothing to do with resolution/accessibility, nor the AMD Catalyst Control Panel.

Specs on screens:

3 x 1920x1080p Monitors

Hi (and welcome to the forums)


Why not try a run of System Restore? It usually works fairly well for getting settings back to previous values, and it doesn't bother your personal files.
_______________

The steps below are for computers running any version of Windows 8 except Windows 8 RT (which mostly is used on the Microsoft tablets called "Surface" ... ["Surface Pro" tablets run Windows 8 Pro]. System Restore isn't available for Windows RT.

I'll assume that your computer isn't running Windows RT, and is running Windows 8 or Windows 8 Pro.
_______________

To restore your PC using System Restore

1. From a touchscreen, swipe in from the right edge of the screen to produce the "charms" bar, and then tap the Search magnifying glass icon. (Or, if you're using a mouse, point to the upper-right corner of the screen, move the mouse pointer down to produce the "charms" bar, and then click Search.) Enter Recovery in the search box, tap or click Settings, and then tap or click Recovery.

2. Tap or click Open System Restore, and follow the prompts. Pick a restore point from before the unwanted changes.
_______________

If the changes came about without any action on your part, you might also want to scan for malware, as its presence can cause all sorts of unpredictable behavior. Check in Device Manager, too, in case you might have a device (especially your display or graphics/video card) whose driver is generic rather tha... Read more

I know i can reset the zoom via keyboard but the annoying part is when I have 2 fingers on the touchpad to prepare the scrolling and it triggers the zooming.Device: X1 Extreme (20MF000XGE)So the question is: does anyone know how to adjust the sensitivity just for the pinch zoom?

So one thing that I love about windows is the alt+tab feature where you can cycle through the open programs.  One change that I noticed from windows 10 to previous windows is that the desktop was removed from the alt+tab.  I found that
whenever you use a program (games mostly for me) that goes into a fullscreen mode and don't have another program open, you can't exit out of the fullscreen, in windows 8 and before I was able to just alt+tab to access the desktop.  I've tried using
alt+tab, windkey+d, ctrl+shift+esc.  The only way I found to work was to ctrl+alt+del then open the task manager then you can access the desktop.  The problem here is that if I'm using the fullscreen program and want to open
a second program, I have to go through the process I explained to get, let's say, spotify open.  I hope in the next update the desktop gets included in the alt+tab feature!

Hi, whenever I turn on or off "Number Lock" in my keyboard a notification message pops up in the lower right corner of the screen displaying the status (ON or OFF). Same for "Caps Lock". Is this a Windows 7 feature? If so, how can I disable it? Thanks (I went to Control Panel/Keyboard but found no such feature)

A:Windows 7 feature?

From what I could find out, the only notification that comes with Windows is the Ease of Access Center / Make the keyboard easier to use. This option will play a 'tone' when the Caps Lock, Num Lock or Scroll Lock are activivated. Any on-screen notifications are placed there by third party software that is usually installed by the computer manufacturer. Or it may also be placed on the system with software from some custom, third party keyboard manufacturers.

Hello,

I have been searching everywhere on this forum and others in trying to fix this. I have a 64bit Windows 7 Ultimate machine. I am trying to add .Net 3.5 from the install windows feature section. It fails and after a reboot it reverts back to not installed. Some things I have tried. I completely removed all .Net installs, I ran the .Net cleanup utility. Then tried to add it and it still fails. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

Hello, my Windows Update is not working: it returns the error 80073712. It has been like this for several months. I tried to do sfc /scannow but it says: "beginning system scan. This process will take some time" and 2 seconds after it says "Windows Resource Protection could not preform the requested operation". My Windows Help and Support doesn't work either as well as my Windows Features (when I open "Turn Windows features on and off" it returns a blank box). I also tried the "Windows6.1-KB947821-v27-x86.msu" but it does not repair the error. I also scanned my system with Malwarebytes Antimalware and avast! to see if it was a malware or virus but i do not find anything.

In the other hand, my date and time is working as well as my search box.

I do not know what I have to do.
I have a Windows 7 Ultimate x86.
Thank you for your help

PS: I also tried some other things but I do not remember anymore what they were

Hi , I?m trying to install the Windows Media Feature Pack so I go to Microsoft website and download the file: Windows6.2-KB2703761-x64 but at the end of the installation I get a msg that the Update was not installed... I try once again and get the same error
Can someone help me?

A:Windows 8 Windows Media Feature Pack KB2703761 issue

Try it again with your antivirus software disabled and see if it works. If it doesn't your pc has other issues going on. Also, have you tried typing Add Features in the search box ? You need to do that and then type in the product key for the Media Pack.

I would like to use my 16 gig or maybe a new 32 gig USB flash drive to use the Windows To Go feature of Windows 8. BUT, the Consumer Preview has no way to create such. I've only found a boot setting pertaining to it. Has anyone got this to work or go?

Before the naysayers say it, you CAN run Windows off a flash drive. I've already done it with Windows 7 on my 16 gig USB 2.0 flash drive. It boots about as fast as most PCs, and works quite fine. I want to see Windows 8 in action though.

A:Has anyone got the Windows To Go feature working?

Hi there
It's possible with XP -- there's a post about Hirens CD which is an XP system that runs off a flash drive --

I don't know if it can be done for VISTA, W7 or W8 --- pity as it could be a useful tool.

I currently use a very small Linux distro for this sort of stuff and bring up a W7 VM which is as near a portable system I can get.

Works on W8 as well -- install a MINIMAL Linux with a GUI -- install vmware / VBOX on the linux and then copy a W7 / W8 VM on to the USB drive

I'm using a 16 GB drive -- the Linux distro is only 1 GB and I've the other 15GB for a small W8 system.

You don't need to be "Geekish" for a tiny Linux -- all you want it for is to be able to boot and start your Windows VM

Once up and running your W7/ W8 VM can access via networking relevant drives etc etc.

It runs Office quite nicely too but I wouldn't try and run Photoshop on a Windows VM running off a USB !!.
Hint -- create the VM on s "Normal" Disk first as W7 will object if you try and install to a small Disk drive. Then "Clone" the VM using Acronis or some other tool to the USB.
To Coke robot == I'd be interested in knowing how you got W7 to run natively via boot of a USB -- Unless you were using some type of sysprepping I thought that you'd have trouble with the USB drivers as these aren't loaded until quite late into the kernel load.

A USB BOOT installation disk is quite a different matter as it simply has to read the whole OS via Bootstrap on to a H... Read more
