Mouse Snap-to Default In Ie8


I'm trying to get the mouse to snap to the default button in ie8. I have windows 7 64-bit home premiere. Ie8 is 32-bit. I set the mouse properties to move mouse to default button, but it does not work. I checked the registry and the mouse snap to key =1. Is this a problem with ie8? It always worked in windows xp and earlier ies. I've changed mice from a usb wireless to a basic microsoft usb wired three button mouse. I tried updating the driver but windows says it's updated.

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.

I have been through everything in this webpage:http://www.Sevenforums.com/tutorials/3069-aero-snap-turn-off.html and cannot seem to get aero snap to work.

Compare Windows Snap Using Two Monitors

Using vista and xp pro, i would open two occurrences of windows explorer and manually arrange them to be viewed side by side, which allowed me to conveniently move files around.

Windows 7 automates that task through its snap feature, a feature that allows windows to be compared side by side by simply dragging an occurrence of the window to a side of the monitor.
I use two 24" monitors.

When i drag a window, such as a version of windows explorer, to the left side of the screen of monitor 1, it snaps perfectly into place and has a width of about 1/2 of the monitor on my left. That saves me a tremendous amount of time.

When i drag another window to the right side of monitor 1, it continues to travel to monitor 2. The window i wish to compare does not snap into place until it reaches the right side of monitor 2. Is there a setting that allows the snap feature to recognize i want the additional window to snap to the same monitor as the window snapped-to on the left?

Aero Snap Cannot Be Used For Viewing Two Excel Files

I am not able to arrange two microsoft excel files side by side using aero snap functionality. When i click on the stack in the task bar and select one file and drag to left to view half-screen, it displays good there. But when  try to select the second excel file from the stack on the task bar it basically replaces the one which i dragged earlier instead of opening some where for me to drag to right. Whereas i can do the same with two word files or other applications. Appreciate your help.

Snap Feature Does Not Work On Inside Of Dual Monitor Setup

I have windows 7 home premium x64 fully updated. So far it's great. But i have two monitors, primary 1440x900 and secondary 1280x1024 with the secondary monitor on the right of the primary monitor. When i try to "snap" a window to the edge of either monitor that is next to the other monitor, nothing happens. I was wondering if this was a typical problem people were having or if it was just me and if there was any way to make it work or if there was a patch for it. (Google chrome's built-in "snap" feature can use the inside of the monitors).

Mouse Scrolling Stuck With Wireless Mouse

I have a labtec wireless optical mouse for notebooks. It causes scrolling to involuntarily occur with sliders and drop-down boxes as long as the mouse is hovering over the item.
For example:

1) when i signed up to these forums and had to choose a country the mouse scrolled through the list right to the bottom without my intervention (other than selecting the drop-down box). Almost all drop down boxes tend to be effected regardless of what program it is in.

2) if i try to adjust the volume in the system tray the mouse raises the sound even while i am trying to lower it.

3) in certain programs the mouse will scroll through the page automatically. It does not do this with all programs. Chrome, ie, firefox, acrobat, notepad and many others are not affected.

4) i did not have these issues with xp at all, but i did when i used ubuntu (mouse would cycle through tabs and always cycle to the first box on the ubuntu taskbar. I had to alt-tab to change windows. )
 
5) when i first installed chrome the mouse would automatically scroll through the tabs to the first one even if all i did was hover over the tabs. I could could only properly select another tab if i clicked it and then moved the mouse from the tabs quickly. I did this which fixed the issue: "the document suggests changing some registry values to disable this high resolution behavior.

Default Printer Identification

I am using 64bit windows7 with a hp laserjet5 parallel printer. I have tried three times to associate the hplj5 driver with the default printer by deleting the existing entry in printers & faxes and then adding a new printer. The result is that my default printer is now called "hp laserjet 5 (copy 3). "

When i issue a print command, i get different results, depending on the active program: (a) in firefox, "hp laserjet 5" comes up in the print window and the document prints directly; (b) in notepad and internet explorer, "hp laserjet 5 (copy 3) appears in the print window, but the print command fails; if i change the selection to "hplaserjet 5" in the window, the document prints correctly; and (c) in wordpad, there is no way to print at all.

I assume that i will need to edit the registry to correct this situation, and i would greatly appreciate a step-by-step description of how to associate the hplj5 driver with the default printer.

Default Gateway Problem

I have windows 7 and i've been using dsl for about a month. I was using my internet without any problems yesterday afternoon but when i tried to get on in the evening my internet was not working. When i troubleshoot it says "the default gateway is not available. " It's not the modem because i've used the same modem with 3 different computers since the problem started. My norton security expired yesterday also which i heard could disable the internet but i uninstalled norton and that had no effect. I don't really know what else to try so any advice would be great.

How To Customize Default Profile?

I was hoping someone could help me; i am trying to customize my windows 7 default profile. The way i used to do this in the past with winxp was by:

Create a local user account that did not have admin rights login with that local user and tweak the desktop and all application the way i wanted them reboot and map the that machines local drive from another computer make a copy of the original default profile and name it "default profile (original)" copy the contents of the local user account profile that i logged in with earlier and paste it over the default user profile

This worked like a charm and all users that logged in thereafter received the tweaked user profile that i created. With windows 7 i'm running into a lot of permission issues (even though i'm logged in as either a domain admin or local admin).

Also, i granted the local administrator "owner" rights to the default profile and it still failed to copy. I didn't get a specific error unfortunately. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated as this is driving me crazy. It's something i used to be able to do so simply with xp.

Win 7 64-bit Doesn't Distinguish Between Ie8 64-bit And Ie8 32-bit

Windows 7 64bit doesn't distinguish between ie8 64 bit and ie8 32 bit when attempting to set a default browser using the control panel default programs 'associate' utility. My new windows 7 64 bit pc (luv that i7 920 intel cpu) came installed with both ie8-64 bit and ie8-32 bit (nothing more need be said regarding the absurdity of having to deal with this in the first place - i should have gone with the imac).

Anyway, ie64 bit lacks the flash player cuz adobe hasn't released a 64 bit version yet, per their website. So i can't use ie64 with xm online music stream (et al). Ie32, on the other hand, supports flash player, but won't successfully link to various embedded hypertext links, such as those embedded in an email. My initial solution was to use firefox, which served me well until an application from a local vendor will only work with internet explorer. Sigh.

I've used windows since version 2 back in the 1980s, have become stoic, and can emotionally cope with having to use 3 browsers to get the job done.

However, just for fun, my current burning question is, with two different versions of ie8 (64 bit and 32 bit) installed into windows 7, why doesn't the control panel default applications utility seem to aware of the fact that there are indeed two different versions installed? It lists firefox and internet explorer, but does not differentiate between the two flavors of ie. My goal was to set ie8 64 bit as the default browser temporarily to accommodate the vendor's application.

Fyi, by setting the default, i refer to: control panel | default programs | associate a file type or protocol with a program. Then scroll down to 'http' and click on the change program button. So in my case, firefox and only one instance of internet explorer, with no bit distinction, display as selection options.

It says to restart the spooler or machine (restarting machine hasn't worked and i don't know how to do the other).computers are not my forte and i'd be really grateful for any help from more experience folk.

Unable To Set Headset As Default

Unable to set headset as default default but works when using the 'test' option in . In the past i was able to switch between default audio devices on my computer, from the headset to the speakers. However, about a week ago, i could no longer do so. I realized this problem when i tried to switch from speakers to a headset as a default device (both speakers and headset are connected).

In the playback options, i right clicked the corresponding device (my 2-c-media usb headphone set) and clicked on "set as default device". However, the icon did not change from the phone-shaped icon into the check-mark icon. I proceeded to check if my device was working properly by clicking on "test" instead of "set as default device".

I was able to perfectly hear the test sound through the headphone set, but i am still unable to set it as my default device. I game a lot so i usually set my headset as the default device to prevent noise pollution in my house. I am using a windows 7 64-bit. Home premium.

Anyone?

Restoring Factory Default Settings

I am a novice to intermediate pc user. Here is my problem. I have a netbook running windows 7 starter edition. When i got it, i was probably prompted to allocate memory on the second drive for backup space. I didn't know the ramifications and set half the memory which was a mistake. How do i either change the ratio of allotted space or how can i simply restore the computer to factory default settings so i am prompted to start over and reallocate space. I don't mind wiping the device of all in pictures, music, settings, etc. Just want to go back to factory default settings.

How To Change Default Audio Output?

I have an evga 790i ftw motherboard and am using the optical connection on the back for sound. It is connected to my stereo receiver. As of right now, i go to sounds, then select digital audio as my output, and go to properties. Under "supported formats" i can select dts or dolby digital, and when i press test, everything checks out. Afterwards, i go to "advanced" and the default format will only let me select a 2 channel, and that is all that plays out of my stereo. How do i go about changing my output to that of 5. 1 or 7. 1?

Reset All User Permissions To Default

How to reset all user permissions to default? I accidentally stopped a user permission change task and now my system is all messed up, programs won't load correctly after reboot, etc. . I can't change the permissions back because it tells me that i do not have access to certain folders. When i try to find these folders to change them manually, for some reason they are not visible any more. (I have show hidden files to show them). I tried a system restore and the restore points are corrupt, so, i have been looking for a way to reset all permissions to default or factory setting if you will.

Is there any way to reset all permissions to default without going one by one?

Laptop Not Controlling Default Sound

Recently upgraded to windows 7 and now i cannot seem to control the volume of my default sound device when i have a usb headset connected. Previously i could use the volume controls on my laptop keyboard to control the speaker volume on the laptop even with a usb headset connected. Now whenever i have the headset plugged in the volume controls only change the volume of that and not the default speakers? Is there anyway to change this as i've tried everything i can think of and do not understand why the buttons aren't controlling my default sound output!

Terminal Services Default Printer Issue

In this message, the user is having trouble in windows 7 losing the default setting on a printer. Alan morris from microsoft chimes in noting that this is an "old" terminal services issue. I believe i am having that terminal services issue. I use remote desktop to my office workstation. I have my home printer's driver loaded on this office workstation so that i may print to my home printer when remotely connected to my office pc from home.

When i break that connection - usually by just closing the mstsc window - my office pc does not return the default setting to my typical default printer. Either my default setting is lost entirely (no setting at all) or the quickbooks pdf printer gets set as the default. Can anyone help? Especially since this might be an old issue related to terminal services?
