Internet Explorer 11 "View" Custom Zoom missing

Q: Internet Explorer 11 "View" Custom Zoom missing

Hello friends.
I have just noticed at few days ago that in Internet Explorer 11 if I go to "view" tab to change the size of the browser window I'm viewing , the "50%" and "Custom" selection is shaded and NOT available. I do not know what might have happened to change this, or how to change it back. Any help you may be able to provide will be much appreciated.
Thank you in advance...

Preferred Solution: Internet Explorer 11 "View" Custom Zoom missing

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.)

Note : This question is not about Internet Explorer, it's about Windows Explorer.

Hello,

I have two almost identical Windows 7 Enterprise installations, the only difference is that one has Internet Explorer 9, the other one has IE 10.

the IE10 machine's Windows Explorer doesn't have the 2 submenus Toolbars and Explorer Bar (pls see attachment).

I'm not sure if they were available before I tried to install an Windows Explorer extension called "qttabbar", which could have messed up the reqistry (found nothing on their forums btw).

Any clues on how to make the submenus (re)appear ?

Note: I have the "Toolbars" and "Explorer Bar" on Internet Explorer 10.

A:"Windows Explorer-> View ->Toolbars" missing

Hello Wolf, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Those most likely would have been added by qttabbar. They are not there by default.

If you like, you could do a system restore using a restore point (if available) dated before this happened to undo it.

When I click on "tools" on the menu bar in any folder that I am exploring and subsequently click on "folder options" I notice that the "view" tab is completely missing. The only tab I have access to is "file types"

This creates a serious problem when dealing with hidden folders that were hidden prior to me having knowledge of this "view" feature being absent.

What are my options to restore this "view" tab so that I can view the hidden files that I need access to?

TIA
 

A:"View Tab" in "Folder Options" missing

Other than a system restore, I don't know how to restore the view tab. I can tell you how to enable the hidden files and folders from the registry.
Start> Run> type: regedit and hit OK. Navigate to:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\
Advanced
Click on Advanced folder in the left pane and look for Hidden in the right panel. Set the value to 1 to show and 2 to hide.
If not there, create DWORD value with Value name: Hidden and set the value as above.

Edit: Forgot to add, you need to restart computer for settings to be changed.

In Windows XP, fully updated, I have several folders full of mp3's and want to see the bit rate and duration. I right click on a column heading and select "Bit rate". I then click on "More..." so I can get to "Duration", and I select that one too.

But all the figures in the "Duration" column appear to be in "hours" and "minutes", so I see "00:04" or "00:03", but what I want is "minutes" and "seconds".

I am running Windows XP SP3, fully updated, on an Acer lap top PC.

I have several folders full of .mp3's and want to see the bit rate and duration. To do this I right click on a column heading and select "Bit rate". I then click on "More..." so I can get to "Duration", and I select that one too.

The two new columns appear, but the format of the "Duration" column appears to be "hours:minutes", so I see "00:04" or "00:03" for most .mp3's, when what I want to see is 'hours:minutes:seconds", e.g. "00:03:45".

This also happens for video files (.avi files), e.g. all my episodes of "Heroes" (sad, I know) have a duration of "00:42" instead of "00:42:xx".


Here are two pictures showing the problem with the .mp3's. The first is of Explorer showing the Duration as "Hours:Minutes":




The second picture is of the properties window of the first .mp3 in the list above:

A:TEMPORARY INTERNET FILES's: "VIEW FILES"and"VIEW OBJECTS" /...are they necessary

The items listed in "View Objects" are downloaded browser plug-ins that allow you to do such things as play Shockwave animations, interact with certain Java sites (like msnbc.com), play some audio files, etc.

You probably don't want to delete them because they will restrict the functionality of the browser. You *can* delete them, but you'll just have to download them again when you visit a page that requires the functionality.

While using "Windows Explorer" as an FTP client I have put the system into a state where any attempts to access an FTP folder from "Windows Explorer" produces the following dialog:
Dialog Title: "FTP Folder Error"
Dialog Icon: Information Icon
Dialog Text: "Windows cannot access this folder.  Make sure you typed the file name correctly and that you have permission to access the folder.  Details: No more Internet handles can be allocated"
Dialog Buttons: OK
I had used the "Add a network location" feature of "Windows Explorer" to add an FTP site.  The FTP folder appears under "Computer" in the left panel of "Windows Explorer."

Let's say I have a folder in my Documents somewhere called "thisisit".
Within "thisisit" folder, I have other folders, each named for a student in my class.

When I go to Start > Documents and navigate to "thisisit", I don't see any folders, but I do see all the files from all the folders. It's as if my computer took all the files from the folders, removed them from the folders and copied them into the parent folder "thisisit", and then deleted all the subfolders, named after the students.

However, if I navigate to that same "thisisit" folder, through a software like Photoshop or 3ds Max, I DO see all of the subfolders, which are named after the students.

If you are beyond the C folders (D to Z) it will go immediately to Computer.

A:Can't see Icons in "Thumbnail" view in Windows Explorer.

See if IconShop or IconEdit32 either one will give you the option of associating .ico files, through their "settings" or "options". If you have an image viewer that supports .ico file extensions, you can associate them with it.

What is your default image viewer? If it has the ability to view .ico files, then you can associate them with it.

If you can't associate it through one of the programs interface, then you can do it through any Windows Explorer window.. Just click Tools in the menu at the top and choose Folder Options>File Types>then find the extension and change the program that opens it.

"dependency chain" "windows 7" internet "windows explorer"

At the time of this writing, this search in Google will produce one result at best. Am I searching the wrong things? I have tried a couple handfuls of variants, and I am coming up with zilch.

Though I am fairly well versed in Windows 7 from working on other people's machines, I decided to stick with good old XP because of one issue above all else. When I instructed my firewall to block Windows Explorer from accessing the Internet it completely cut me off from the Internet, no ifs, ands or buts. My understanding of why this is happened leads me to believe the dependency chain for Internet access goes through Windows Explorer. I have long had a habit of blocking my File Manager of choice access to the Internet because... well, it's a file manager! Admittedly, my one experience with Windows 7 on my own machine was a retired student version of Server 2008 R2, but as soon as I found out that was the case, I decided not to make the move to Windows 7 and went back to my XP installation. I believe I was using Sunbelt Personal Firewall at the time. I now use PCTools Free Firewall.

Is this still the case with Windows 7? Is there a workaround if it is?

I haven't tried to recreate this on another person's machine.

This is a question for information about why my networking problem finally was resolved.
I have four PC?s on my network; one Windows 7 and three Windows XP. The Windows 7 PC always sees all three of the other computers. However the Windows XP computers sometimes don?t see the other XP computers when I press ?My Network Places.? Quite by accident I discovered that if I press ?View Workgroup Computers? then ALL the other PC?s in the network DO show up. Furthermore, if I click through "View Workgroup Computers" and access/edit a file on one of the other computers, then this computer will ALSO show up in ?My Network Places.? This behavior seems to be quite consistent and works every time I have tried it. Apparently, this is a workaround to the long vexing problem of why my networked PC?s sometimes don?t show up under ?My Network Places.?

My question: why does ?View Workgroup Computers? apparently always show all the networked PC?s, when ?My Network Places? does so only intermittently or sometimes not at all?

For example, I have the "View" set to "Details", and the two columns I have showing are "Name" and "Type", with "Name" selected as the preferred sort order.

With those settings in place, the "Recycle Bin" is not displaying the files in the correct order.I am not sure of the order that it is displaying them, as I can't pick-up on any pattern.

For example, it is displaying:

"File0002.jpg"
"File0003.jpg"
"File0004.jpg"
"File0001.mp3"
"File0001.jpg"

When I adjust it again so it displays them in the correct order, the next time I open the "Recycle Bin", the order has returned to the incorrect display.

Any ideas on how to correct this?

I've set the default folder view to Details for all drive folders.

But the folder I am currently working from is accessed through the internet, i.e. the file path at the top of the window starts with "The Internet".

This defaults to icon view even though I applied the Details view to all other drive folders.

Is there a way to set the default view for internet folders?

Are you able to take a screenshot of the folder in question, i'm not sure what you mean by the internet folder?

Hi!

When I select "show hidden item", windows 8.1 "This PC" explorer shows empty removable drives. Is it normal or not?

Thank you in advance!

Wouldn't happen to have a card reader would you? If so that is what it is showing and yes it is normal.

Am using OUtlook 2003 and wondered whether there is a way to simultaneously view the Calendar and Contacts folders on one screen. Thanks.

Maybe someone else has a better idea, but you could open two instances of Outlook and size the screens so that you could view both windows next to each other.

Your sentances don't t really make too much sense of the problem.. You download games and try to install them but can't access the install files? Or when you install them you can't access them..?

Make sure you are the administrator of your system

The subject message pops up any time I attempt to open my IE8 browser using Windows XP and set to my home page "ATT.Yahoo". When I click "OK" in the message, IE closes and tries to recover, but with the same results each time. I know
there is a method to reset IE9, but can't tell if it also pertains to IE8 since it can't be opened.

A:"Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library" "Runtime Error! Program: C:Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe"

Hi,
the first step in troubleshooting IE issues is to test in noAddons Mode.
toolbars.google.com - download and install the latest IE compatible version of the Google Toolbar.
for consumer help with IE select the Help>Online Support menu from IE and follow the prompts for your windows and IE versions. thx.Rob^_^

Please, please help me. I hope I'm not being redundant. I'm using Windows XP Pro
and I'm the administrator and only members of my immediate family have access to
this (home) computer. There are 6 of us. Each of us has a "user" site. I, as administrator,
am able to run "Internet Explorer" and surf the web. When the (limited) "users"
try to run "IE" (double click the "IE" icon) on their "user" site, nothing happens
until about a minute later, the screen goes disjointed, everything freezes up and
"IE" cannot be accessed (doesn't load) ... . If I change the "users" to "administrators",
they are able to access "IE", no problem and hence surf the net. If I change them
back to "limited", "IE" again doesn't work. I've run, "ad-aware, "spy-bot", "pest
control", I have "zone-alarm" installed and "Norton Anti-virus". Can anyone help
me?

When I connect to my enterprises network, for some reason it downgraded my version of Internet Explorer 11 to Internet Explorer 7. It doesn't do this on my home network or on any other network I have connected to, only my enterprises network.
I have contacted my ICT department to see if they can solve this issue, and they don't know how to fix this issue.
I used the website https://supportdetails.com to check the details of my browser and what other websites detect it as, and it detects it as Internet Explorer 7 for some strange reason. When I check the actual version of Internet Explorer
by going to the Tools button and then About Internet Explorer, it says I am using Internet Explorer 11.0.9600.18763.
I am running Windows RT 8.1 which might be the reason as to why other websites/services detect my browser as IE 7, as other devices such as the Surface Pro 3, iPad and other laptops all work fine.
If there is a way to make my device be detected as Internet Explorer 11 and not 7, that would be great.

Regards, Mr Kaos
