Toolbar New_tab.html - Change New Tab Address

How do i change 'about:tab' back to 'toolbar:new_tab.html, for my new tabs. Can't get rid of 'about:tab' address for my new tabs. Don't like or want the page. Lost all my book marks; tried 'tools' drop down menu, tab settings, but it doesn't have the, 'toolbar:new_tab.html' option. Only allow blank page or home page setting changes. Tried to type: toolbar:new_tab.html on the address line and it jumps back to about:tab. Does somebody know how to change the new tab address?

Uninstall Ie8 Tab Missing In Add/remove List

I need to uninstall & reinstall ie8 on my pc running win xp/sp3. But on the add/remove programs list under ie8, the uninstall tab is missing. The reason that i need to uninstall is that ie 8 hangs every so often. It has been suggested to me that my problem might be caused by installing ie8 before installing sp3 after my pc was in for repairs. If this is what is causing the problem, should i uninstall sp3 and see if this allows me to then uninstall ie8? Or is there another fix for this issue?

Cannot View Chinese Characters With Ie8

After installing recommended updates yesterday, a window popped up and asked if i wanted to install ie 8. I had been using ie 7 so i thought i might switch. I did not do any custom settings while installing ie 8. My default homepage has always been set to google.com. Hk which displays contents in chinese. When i was using ie 7, everything was fine and i could see all the chinese characters; but after i switched to ie 8, i can no longer see them. I tried adding the chinese (hk) and chinese (prc) languages at tools> internet options> language> language preference, but it didn't work.

I also tried the various chinese options at encoding, but it didn't work either. I should also mention that i have auto-select turned on in encoding. Fyi i am using windows xp home edition version 2002 service pack 3.

Ie8 Web Page Opening Zip File From Link

I have ie8, standard setup. I have an online ordering application i login to that i use to download and print invoices. The process:i login to website, go to invoices section then list my invoices, there is a print button that i click on for each or one invoice, when i click it it is supposed to open another window then automatically bring up the save/download/open dialogue box to open a zip file that contains the invoice in pdf format. What happens is that once this file is brought up on screen to select your option the ie window closes automatically.

My issue is that when i click the print button the second web page opens then the box comes up asking do i want to close the web page, no zip file shows up or downloads. I have java as i think it's a java app, i have disables and enabled java, updated to latest version, updated ie etc but without luck. I have a vm running ie7 and same issue, i also have other co-workers that don't have the issue and others that do. Ny ideas where to look?

Ie8 Crashes When View Web Pages With Flash

I've got 2 windows 7 machines, but on 64-bit processors with the 64-bit version of windows 7 installed. On both of them if we go to a web page with flash on it, and then close internet explorer 8, it will, always crash.

Why is that?  I can avoid if, if i go to some other web page without flash on it, but man that can be hard to remember and sometimes the flash isn't obvious because it isn't moving, so its easy to forget to go to some web page withou a flash item on it, but that's not the point. The point is why in heck does ie8 crash just because there's a flash element on the page?

Cannot Change Default Search In Ie8

Every time i open ie8 i get this message "a program on your computer has corrupted your search provider, live search. Internet exployer will now open the search settings where you can change this setting or install more search providers. " I click o. K. And go to manage addons.live search is already enabled. Regardless of what changes i make and close the window, its pops up again ever time i log in and start a search. Otherwise all works well. I have gone to tools, internet options, and tried changing the default, added bing and still it will not change the default and the message keeps coming up. It is very annoying.

Unable To View Thumbnails Using Detailed View

I am unable to view thumbnails in windows explorer while i am using detailed view. I only can see them when they are extra large. I can't see them in small, not in list, not in medium, just in extra large. I hate them extra large. I want to view them in detailed view. This is what i have done so far:under folder options/view i "unchecked" the "always show icons never thumbnails".

That did not work. I did go through tons of problems regarding thumbnails in the forums, but could not find a solution to my problem. I am using windows 7 professional 64 bit. I never had a problem with thumbnails in windows xp. Now i am struggling and i want to view my thumbnails again. I just don't know what else i can do. I must be missing something in the settings; but what?

Tab For Recycle Bin

Can't see files in he recycle bin from drives other than c:all files deleted from the root drive c: can be seen in the recycle bin. Having multiple drives (local and networks), if you delete a file it goes to the recycle bin, but you can 't see. Steps taken. I can see all of my drives' recycle bin when i change view setting to show hidden files. What i can't do - not sure i should be able to do - is change the attribute settings on the recycle bin's to deselected hide file. Maybe that is what's missing. Any suggestions?

Solution To Alt Tab Not Working

This is not a question but a solution that took me about a month to find.consistently found alt tab to change programs would not work, and when i hovered over the taskbar at the bottom of the screen, the postage stamp image of the application would flash on once then disappear. Sometimes i could just not get an open application to maximize. Usually use my hp laptop at a workstation but when using it in another location noticed the problem had disappeared.

Figured there was something about the workstation. Tried back at the workstation and through a process of trial and error found it was a logitech skype usb speaker phone. It is a fairly old model - maybe 2007 - which i got as a freebee when i purchased a pc. It doesn't seem to like windows 7. Unplugged it and there is no further problem.

Classic Mode Using Alt+tab

I'm running win7 ultimate in the classic mode (the aero mode was just too much visual noise) and for years i've used the alt+tab to switch between applications. Starting with vista the contents of the pop-up alt+tab window sorts and does not retain the positions as it did in xp. Are there any settings that i can change to get the xp non-sorted window. With the darn sorting i find myself searching for the "the" window i want to bring to the foreground. I almost always have several applications running (10-20) and multiple windows within each application thus it is not uncommon that i will have 30-50 windows open when i'm researching a topic and attempting to create a document or presentation on the topic.

Power Management Tab Missing

I just reinstalled windows 7 home on my tablet pc, the hp tm2t. Since i switched my hdd to an ssd. However, as i'm setting the tablet pc's multitouch function so that it would be responsive after idle (before my reinstall, i could uncheck "allow the computer to turn off this device to save power"), i realized the power management tab in device manager isn't there anymore.

The item i'm looking for is under the human interface devices -> usb input device (it's not specified, but this device manages the multitouch for my tablet). I still see the power management tab for my wireless card, biometric devices (fingerprint reader) and some other usb root hubs. Does anyone else have the same problem? Or know a fix?

Ie Keyboard Shortcut For Open Link In New Tab

The help file for internet explorer states that the keyboard shortcut for "open links in a new tab in the background" is "ctrl+click", yet last i looked "click" is not a key, it is a mouse activity. How does a non-mouse user (blind, physical disability) perform "ctrl+click", or rather, how does a non-mouse user open links in a new tab in the background?

Force Aero Tab Preview, Transparency

I am running windows 7 ultimate with dual-monitors and a high-end video card that is aero-capable. However, i run an additional monitor for background work that is connected to my computer viaa usb to vga converter. Upon connecting the converter aero tab preview, transparency and peek go away. I would like to have those aero features enabled, at least on the main monitors, with the usb to vga converter attached.

Running the aero troubleshooter indicates that wddm session manager was disabled, but corrected that problem (actually the wddm session manager is consistently reported as "started" so i'm not sure what the troubleshooter is telling me). I have read in other forums about a registry modification method (adding dwords to hkey_current_usersoftwaremicrosoftwindowsdwm) but this does not work.contacting the manufacturer of the converter, siig, did not result in any solutions.

So i am hoping that you can suggest amethod to force aero tab preview, transparency and peek even if the usb to vga converter does not meet aero hardware requirements.

Folder / File Permissions In Properties Tab

I have a particular program that will not start because i do not have write permissions for the folder, sub-folders, and files associated with the program. Going to the properties tab reveals that the folder is read only. I uncheck the box but can't seem to make it a permanent change. It always comes back up as read only. I have gone into every imaginable edit/advanced tab possible and given permissions to every possible group i can think of, yet despite the fact that every kind of permission possible is enabled and visible, i still can't uncheck the read-only box permanently and i still get "you do not have write permissions" from the program. I have tried changing ownership, running as administrator, and yet no progress on this problem.

Aero Alt+tab Application Keeps Popping Up

I have a windows 7 professional system and for some reason the little window that comes up when you press alt+tab keeps popping up on its own. Whether i'm at my system working or i'm away from my system it keeps popping up on its own. I've tried reinstalling the drivers for my keyboard and mouse. I've made sure my system is up to date with all the latest updates but this problem keeps happening. I haven't been able to find more information about this anywhere, though i may be using the wrong search terms because i dont know what that alt+tab window is called. Keyboard/mouse i'm currently using is microsoft wireless laser desktop 6000 (v2 i think).

Login / Welcome Page Keeps Popping Up

Have a brand new lenovo thinkpad and had windows 7 installed on here. My login page keeps popping up every time i look away from the screen it seems. It is happening within about a minute of inactivity. I have tried resetting power settings in the control panel, and nothing seems to make any difference. Is there a way to disable the login page? Or slow it down so it doesn't pop up so frequently? It doesn't even have a chance to get to a screen saver it happens so fast. I have tried troubleshooting and so on, and i am not super techno-savvy but i did search online and i just can't seem to find anyone with the same problem to resolve this. It's super irritating and i would appreciate any help.

Send Page By Email Problem

I bought my machine with windows 7 pre installed a couple of wees ago. A few days ago i noticed that using ie8 the send page by email is greyed out and does not work. Similarly using acrobat 9. 2 when i try to do the same function i gen a similar error " unable to connect to mail server". Note, i had outlook 2003 on this machine as the first program i installed, i have since taken outlook off completely.

I have tried the following;
Uninstall live mail
Uninstall adobe reader
Install mozilla thunderbird , allow it to set it as the default email client
- Same probelm -

Uninstall thunderbird
Reinstall live mail
Reinstall adobe reader
- Same problem -

Used default program numerous times and set live mail as the default mail program.
- Same problem -

From some looking on the web someone suggested that outlook left behind registry entries, somebody else said they manually edited the "sendto" in the registry but neither left specific instructions.

Cannot Edit Web Page Source

I have a web site that i edit by hand coding in notepad. I view the .html file on my hard drive, click on view and select source. I can then edit my code and change my web pages, then upload via ftp. That was until today! Now the pages are un-editable. The code page now shows up in colours with numbers in the left margin, which didn't happen before. It is not possible to edit the page at all.

I suspect that this is something to do with the windows update that was downloaded today. I was able to establish that this was security update for jscrit 5-8 for windows vista (kb971961) what can i do to make the source code editable again? This is vital as it is the website of a charity that i manage.

Trouble Opening Pages From Another Page

Following a spyware attempt on my computer, i began having trouble opening new pages. Example - from my homepage i click on google docs in my favorites menu, and the first page of my docs comes right up. But when i try to open a file a new tab appears, but no page opens.

Some links open up just fine. It seems random which will open or won't. From one web site with a selection of videos, clicking on a choice takes you absolutely nowhere; while on a different site, the same action performs fine. This happened once before, and i did some simple thing and fixed it. Have no idea now what it was i did. Ideas. Windows 7 and ie8, brand new pc.

Help & Support Points To Non Existent Page

Following an upgrade from vista to windows 7, whenever i click on "help & support" on the start menu, the window opens with an schematic image of a partitioned disk and the message: "topic not found". I am told "for additional assistance, see more support options, " online help is "on" and entering anything in the search box gets the required information. It is just the home page that is pointing to a non-existent address and i don't know how to change it!
