Preferred Solution: Edge Chromium - link to pdf file and not only

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.)

Hey All,

If you are running the new Microsoft Edge Chromium browser, here are two things that you can disable to help your system run faster and smoother:
Go under Settings and More (Three lines in right-hand corner.)
Go to Settings and System
Turn off Hardware Acceleration
Turn off Run Apps in the Background after Microsoft Edge is closed.

Using Edge 81.0.416.68 64bit I am not seeing the IE blue "e" so I am apparently still running in Chrome mode on two sites that require Internet Explorer:


I have configured the two required GPO's:

and I have used the v2 builder to create the list:

which outputs what I was expecting:

<site-list version="5">
  <created-by>
    <tool>EMIESiteListManager</tool>
    <version>12.0.0.0</version>
    <date-created>05/04/2020 23:21:15</date-created>

  <site url="tgs/sites/projects">
    <compat-mode>IE8Enterprise</compat-mode>
    <open-in>MSEdge</open-in>
  </site>
</site-list>


Edge is seeing the list:

and the registry looks fine (to me anyway :) ) 


I have tried several combinations of settings in the ENT MODE SITE LIST MANAGER but not succeeded.  
I simply want the two sites specified to open inside Edge in IE mode. 
As soon as that is done, I will block iexplore.exe from running on machines as a security improvement.
If you have any idea what I am missing or doing wrong, I would appreciate your comments and thoughts.

In Microsoft Edge, then you hover on a link in a webpage, the link is displayed in the lower left hand corner of the page. in some instances this display covers up the link itself and will not allow you to click the link.

How do I turn this off, so that the links are not displayed?

I worked most of today in Word on a critical document, saving the file every 10 minutes or so. I put the machine in hibernate and when I opened it back up to do more work, the file was not in the Word recent file list.

Did a search (from the Start icon) and the file, with the proper date and time showed up as a link (a magnifying glass with the shortcut arrow in the lower left). I cannot find a way to have the link icon open the file that I saved.

Is there anyway to retrieve a file that the OS knows was there, but appears to have lost the linkage?

Welcome to the Seven Forums!

Maybe you have already tried this, but open the Windows (File) Explorer and manually look around for the file that way. When you first open the Windows (File) Explorer, you should see the Documents library - look around in there.

Hi,
This is my first post.
First of all, I would like to congratulate and thank all the Admins, Developers and Tech enthusiasts on this forum/site for dedicatedly and painstakingly helping, solving and resolving issues and troubles of tons of people around the globe saving them time and money. This is really appreciable.

My Issue:
I have a large number of audio and video karaoke files (more than 25,000) in one folder and the lyrics of them in another as text or image files. When I have to play Audio/video file without the lyrics, I have to manually locate the Lyrics/image file to sing along.

I was wondering if somehow I could be able to open the lyrics file (text/image) when I click the audio/video file. So when I double click on an audio/video file, the associated text/image file would also open along with it (Like mp3 file is a hyperlink to text file).

Some mp3 files have text lyrics which I can open in Winamp. But creating/converting all audio/video with lyrics will take years for me taken into consideration the number of songs I have. Please enlighten and help me with this issue.
Thank you for your time and efforts. Cheers~!

I cannot use the Microsoft print to pdf feature on my Lenovo laptop from the Windows 10 Home Edge browser. The print screen shows a blank preview. Print to pdf does work on the laptop from any other app such as Word, OneNote, etc.

I can print to pdf from Edge on my desktop running the same version of Windows 10 and Edge.

I have completely uninstalled the print to pdf feature on the laptop, all the way to uninstalling the print server drivers and disabling the feature in the Windows 10 installation. And then enabling and reinstalling it. I still cannot print to a pdf file from Edge on the laptop. It is not a print problem, as this feature does work on all other apps/programs.

Just wondering if this has been reported as an issue on certain hardware? Thanks for any replies!

A:Edge Browser - cannot print to pdf file

No guarantees. It is possible your Edge program in your laptop has been damaged.
Perhaps a reinstall and re-register of Edge can solve the problem.

When opening this link to a pdf-file in Edge, figure 1 is incomplete. When opening the same link in Chrome, it is complete.
- Could someone verify on another computer that the figure is incomplete in Edge?
- Is it a bug of Edge, or is the pdf-file corrupt?
I am surprised because many years ago the pdf-format guaranteed that a printed document was identical to the original.

A:Pdf file displayed incompletely by Edge

I can verify that what you see is normal behaviour for Edge which seems to use its own pdf viewer. Internet Explorer does a correct job of showing the image using the Adobe Reader add-on.

This is not a problem with the pdf file - it is something that you should report to Microsoft so that they can improve their Edge browser.

Typical MS I typed this message in and MS decided I was not logged in - so I logged in and lost the message - had to type it all again! Warning to you all - make a copy of your message before you submit your message.

Microsoft Edge (MSE) is MS new offering in Windows 10 for viewing PDF files, I like it with one big BUT.

MSE will not open files from a Subst drive/folder, a facility I use a lot.

I have a NAS drive used as a backup/server and despite several complaints on the web files on my NAS drive can be viewed OK.

Examples:
1. Data Drive F: (Physical Drive)
file:///F:/P/ABC/Removal%20Documentation/Job%20Documents/Job%20123/Air%20Test%20123.pdf
MSE opens this file OK

2. NAS Drive (Mapped as U: )
file:///U:/ABC/Removal%20Documentation/Job%20Documents/Job%20123/Air%20Test%20123.pdf
MSE opens this file OK

3. Subst P: F:\P (Subst used to create drive P: )
file:///P:/ABC/Removal%20Documentation/Job%20Documents/Job%20123/Air%20Test%20123.pdf
MSE displays
Hmm, we can?t reach this page.

Physically this file is the same as Example 1 but MSE does not find the file.

Does anyone know if this is likely to be fixed or should I look for a different PDF Reader?

Hi Chaver,

When I look at 1 vs. 3, I see a difference. Not sure if this is a typo but the directory on drive F: seems to have a folder called P in which the ABC folder resides. This is not showing in example 3 and may be the reason the file is not found.

I went through the steps and changed the location, which was an "Edge" labeled folder I created within Downloads.

It then asked me if I wanted to move all my files, I said no, and then apply.

When I checked my Folders, Download is empty! I had a lot of important files there. They are not in the recycle bin. Does anyone know where I can find them and or restore them.

This is a major malfunction!

Whenever I double-click on any file folder, whether it be on the desktop, or inside any other folder, instead of opening up that folder, it just leads me to the "search for a file or folder" window. This happened after I changed my folder icon (which I've done before without any problems).

This led me to use system restore, which caused more trouble then it was worth, and now even after I undid the system restore, I get weird error popups from a download accelerator program that I deleted a long time ago, plus, some of my icons are changed.

How can I get my file folder buttons functioning normally again???

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.

Video is new to me. I was looking to convert a link to a tiny URL but the source had dried up so I had used video download helper to save the file to my computer using VLC player
The problem is that it's a 12 MB file and not all ISP's will allow files that size sent as attachments.
 
What I had wanted to do is simply extract that video from a Utube video and create a tiny url link for it but couldn't understand how to use Video Download Helper to create a link after extracting the file from Utube.

A:converting .flv file into link

sounds like you're just trying to send someone a 12megabyte file, conversion has nothing to do with it really. your ISP has no say in what size of attachment you can send (or what size the receiver can download) but if your email client won't do it then simply use a gmail address for this purpose. gmail(when i last tried to send a large file as an attachment)accepts normal attachments of 20 megabytes above that it uses google drive systems which are still accessible to receivers with a non-gmail address. or you could use something like mediafire, though it has loads of pop-ups, to give them a link to where you have uploaded the file. i guess tiny URL is a link shortening service, which sounds pretty unneccesary to me when you can send the receiver a full length link to a mediafire page or just use a temporary gmail address to send the file. you can also just use a zip or 7z file to  make the video a little smaller for emailing. if the flv format itself is a problem then vlc should be able to convert from that to something more universal like avi(though that usually leads to bigger files).

I have a laptop pre-installed with Win 7 Home Premium.
I have a set of they called Factory Default DVDs ( 4 of them.) So, I can use them to reinstall.
But I am looking for an iso file download. I should have done that when Digital Rivers was still allowed to post all the iso files. Didn't think it was needed.

Anyway, I have .............................
1.)This LINK which is for Retail versions. It is not applicable to me.

2.) Also this link but no clue how to use it to download the iso.
I clicked at the link I wanted and all I got was a page of gibberish.

Thank you.

A:How to use this link to download the iso file

There's a 3rd party DR mirror that was found to have the 7 Home Premium, Pro, and Ultimate editions in both 32/64 bit flavors that include SP1 but will require an SP1 OEM key if that is what the laptop came with! That means it was bought either in mid 2010 or later with 7 on it after the one service pack was out. Any key prior to SP1 simply won't work with these.

You will need to look in the second paragraph which is actually the "en" for English language torrent files on the page seen at Microsoft DigitalRiver Mirror

There you need to watch when picking from the four links for the torrent file for each since there is the "dvd" and there is also the "dvd u" much like for 7 N HP rather then 7 HP. A 3rd party torrent downloader like RT Torrent found at the MS online store is free as well as a second program seen next to that at the store page which you then use to browse to where you download the torrent file to.

When going to look at this thread I found the mistake I made earlier of seeing the "dvd u" downloaded here. Once you have the torrent program downloaded and installed and then go for the torrect file all you do is simply right click on the torrent file itself to select the "open with" option where FF or your other default browser if not Edge or IE is the choice in addition to RT Torrent or the program you go with.

By Chromium you mean Google Chrome? Maybe that's why you can't find it in the Registry?
You should not remove a program by manually deleting it, you need to use it's uninstaller. Try using the free Revo Uninstaller, be sure to use the Advanced method to remove all remnants from the Registry.

I mindlessly clicked on a link that caused me to download a .src file while watching a twitch stream.  The link opened up a page that immediately closed itself and started a download of a file by the name of screenshot and some numbers with a .src extension.  I did not proceed to open this file, and deleted it immediately.  I am afraid that it automatically ran a script and did some bad stuff to my computer.  I am using windows 7 ultimate 64bit.
 
I searched the internet and found another poster with a relatively similar problem: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/575508/steam-scr-file-hidden-keylogger-on-pc/
I proceeded to follow similar instructions as suggested, to try to investigate and fix my problem.
 
I have completed the following steps to try to fix my problem:
1.Downloaded and run wipe  and system ninja,
https://privacyroot.com/software/www/en/wipe.php
https://singularlabs.com/software/system-ninja/
 
2. Ran ccleaner
 
3. Rebooted my machine, disabled my antivirus, downloaded and updated eScanAV.  I am currently scanning.  My second post will contain the log.  I will run Zemana, JRT, and Adware Cleaner as InadequateInfirmity suggests and post those logs as well.
 
Please let me know how else I can proceed to secure my computer and make sure it's clean.  Should I change all my passwords? I would prefer not to if I can avoid it, but understand if that is advisable.  Thank you sincere... Read more

ok so i went away on holiday and left my pc to the rest of my family while i was away, during which time one person tried to watch a quick time plug-in movie from a site (i dont know if this was relevent but that is according to them all they were doing on the pc at the time), at which point the pc slowed drastically and then even tually crashed, mouse keyboard everything. The pc was then turned off directly and when re-booted all programs and documents (with the exeption of internet explorer) were not linked to their programs, they were all .exe and .ink files they all asked you to choose an appropriate program from a list of detected programs, which the majority of did not work.

i took it to a friend who runs a internet cafe and he had never seen it before but, managed to find two programs that restored all links and programs to their correct links, and when they were restored my ad-watch showed 3 downloads and asked if they should be blocked but i wasnt on the internet and currently the pc still runs slowly and programs that should run at start up (ie msn and adwatch dont allways start running). i am unsure as to weather it is has been fixed permenantly or just a temporary thing...

if anyone knows anything or can help plz dont hesitate to ask for more info if yu need it

A:.ink .exe link and program file problem

Hi Lexicon9

Without knowing if your system got infected with some type of malware/spyware I am unsure what could have caused this. I do want you to make sure the system is clean before we tackle the issue at hand.
Please look over the follow.

First Steps at Removing the Malware and Posting your HJT Log

You can also try to manually repair the file associations AFTERfollowing through with the information above.

You'll need to be able to view file extensons in Windows Explorer to follow the instructions below. If you don't see file extensions, do the steps in Improving the view in Windows Explorer then come on back here for the rest.

First, start Windows Explorer (right-click Start, click Explore)
Browse to locate a file of the type you're having problems with.


Right click on the file and select "Open With" from the pop-up menu
Select "Choose Program"
Locate the program you want Windows to use to open files of this type and select it
Put a checkmark next to "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file".
Click OK

We include a link to a customer satisfaction survey in all of our reports. Prior to sending the report to the client, the file is converted from a MS Word doc to an Adobe PDF file using Adobe Professional software. The question is - how do we activate the link in the Adobe file so the client can click it to go to our Survey site? Is this possible to do in an Adobe file?

I'm attaching an example paragraph in Word so you can see the link that needs to work.

Thank you for your help.
 

A:Solved: Web link in pdf file not working

Hi BVlady,
When you convert it to PDF, Adobe should pick up the link automatically. Is that not happening? And you're talking about the link at the bottom, not the "CLICK HERE" link, correct? There is nothing linked to the "click here".

The "compress zip file" link under "send to" has mysteriously disappreared when I right click on a file(s) or folder(s). I am looking for another way besides using system restore to try and recover it.

How else can I create a zip file besides using "send to"?
Thanks, Paul

Guys when you are on the welcome screen and you enter a wrong password for your user, vista shows a "reset password..." option on the bottom. I know how the Reset Password Wizard works and thats NOT my question. My question is how can I make that the "reset password..." button open cmd.exe instead of the original "Reset Password Wizard".
Please help.

Thank you in advance.

A:What file does this link open in Vista?

Hello Roma, and welcome to Vista Forums.

You cannot using that, but this will show you how to boot to the command prompt instead.

If you just wanted to reset the password, then METHOD THREE in the tutorial below can show you how to.
