Open In New Tab Just Sticks

I can't seem to get a connection with "open in a new tab" and "open in a new window" doesn't work at all. This worked fine on vista but just did a full install of win7. I thought maybe norton was the problem and unistalled but problem is still going. Anyone else have this problem?

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?

Website Blinks When I Move The Mouse

I have ie8 x64, and windows vista home x64. Ever since installing ie8 via windows update, i have had a very annoying problem. Lots of websites, including this page where i am submitting this question, blink or flash when i move the mouse. Just the page and elements on it, not the ie interface or windows task bar. I have read some confusing things as to whether this is an adobe flash player problem with ie8 x64 or just a glitch with ie8, but as it is doing it on this page, which from the source does not use adobe flash, i am not sure it is the problem.

Magnifier On Win 7 With Ati Graphics Cards Flashes / Blinks

I've been dealing with this since i built my new development workstation for work. I rely on the magnifier as i have bad eyes. I have a triple monitor setup with a 24" in the center and a 20" on either side. I just built a new core i7 workstation with two ati 7000 series cards. The ati cards and drivers seem to be causing a problem with magnifier where parts of the image blink in and out of existence in the docked magnified image.

I have the latest drivers from ati. Here is a video i shot that shows the problem:-

http://www.Youtube.com/watch?V=vw-7ggarvuk

One suggestion was that it was maybe ati's power saving features causing the card to run too slowly and causing the issue. I have confirmed this with another system like mine in another office, his where 4000 series cards. This does not appear to be a problem in vista (but it could be that the vista machine i tried had older ati drivers).

As i said, i've tried getting help from ati with 0 luck. They apparently don't care.

Note: i'm actually running server 2008 r2 with the desktop experience installed and aero turned on. This is not a problem with aero off. I like aero with the magnifier (with nvidia hardware anyways) as it's much smoother and faster. I've seen this happen in windows 7 as well though and to my knowledge the code bases re: aero are the same.

This configuration works fine with nvidia cards and drivers, i.e. No flashing / blinking. Please don't tell me the solution is to switch back to nvidia hardware, that would suck.

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?

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).

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?

Language Bar Changes Itself

The language bar randomly changes the language from us english to chinese for no particular reason, it also changes the keyboard input from us to multilingual canada, (which isn't that bad, you just lose out on most of your punctuation) has anyone else encountered this problem, i can change it back, it's just annoying when your typing and then you look at the screen and somewhere halfway through it you see that the language changed without any intention.

I can change it back but every couple days on the 3 computers i have purchased win7 for are having this issue, so i know it's not a hardware issue.

Address Bar Searches Ask.com Instead Of Going To Site

Sometimes when i type in an address to my address in ie 7 or ie 8 i end up at ask.com. This is especially weird since i have disabled all search engines i am not interested from the manage add-ons window and it bothers me more than ask.com wasn't there to remove and yet it's there in my address bar. In ie 8 the new link system show ask.com at the bottom of the list just begging to clicked on. I keep my virus checker and microsoft's windows defender up to date and neither has picked up any thing to suggest this is a virus or trojan.

Bing Bar Install Issue

I cannot install the bing bar on my windows 7 pc. The install completes halfway and then closes with no error or finish installed message. I open ie8 and it's not there. It is listed in add/remove programs though. So i have tried uninstalling and reinstalling and a clean boot install. Scan for spyware/virus, system is cleaned. Also, deteled windows temp folder, cleared cache, cookies, disable add-ons. I can install the windows live toolbar successfully. Other programs install fine as well.

Any ideas?

Bing Bar Has Encountered An Error

Error code 400 then error code 1000 then just the "bing bar has encountered an error. Please close all browse". For at least the past three weeks i have been getting a message every time i open ie8 in windows 7 x64-bit.initially it said that the bing bar had encountered an error and listed error code 400. Then later that changed to error code 100, and now it just says that "the bing bar has encountered an error. Please close all browse" with only the help circle to the right.

It no longer shows the temperature either. I have written many times and have yet to get an answer or any suggestion as to how to correct the situation. The bing search page still opens normally and performs searches as it should. I'm getting very tired of this and want it to be corrected. I have tried closing the browser many times as well as every night.

Delete History In Address Bar

I have a sony vaio. It has vista home. I have an item (site)  with accompanying info (images). That seems to be embedded in the history at the address bar. When i try to delete them it is still there. I have tried through control panel, safety and also the tools button. All these methods work to delete all the other history but this one site and its accompanying images. I'm not real knowledgeable with computer but i'm trying. I think i have read in forum of similar (i think?) Problem. Can someone walk me through solving this?

Turn Off Search In Address Bar

I recently downloaded the latest windows update, which in turn updates internet explorer to 8. What i absolutely loved about ie is that i could just type something in the address field (without adding ".com") and it would automatically pull up the website. Saved me a lot of time and loved the functionality of it. Now that it's been updated, i can't do that anymore. Ie8 automatically pulls up google search instead of just loading the page. Is there any way to turn this feature off? It slows my work down. And little minutes each time tends to add up.

Scroll Bar On Photo Viewer

How do you enable/show the scroll bar on the windows photo viewer? I am using two thinkpad t400, one running vista and the other is 7. On the vista machine, when i open up a large photo, the scroll bar will appear so i can go to the top or bottom quickly. On 7, that scroll bar disappeared. Is there a patch i can apply to get it back? It seems it is not in the option or settings. This is really painful because i have to deal with large pictures. And i've been going back to the vista even if i hate it so much.

Delete Favorites Bar Folder

How do i delete the favorites bar folder? I'm trying to delete the 'favorites bar' folder from my bookmarks list in internet explorer 8, as it is redundant. I do not currently, and will never use it, and i also do not want it there. However, every time i delete it, it comes back a few minutes later. I've disabled the favorites bar via group policy editor, and i've tried a suggestion i found of setting the corresponding folder to hidden via windows explorer, then deleting the folder from my bookmarks, but it reappears a few minutes later. Is there any way of getting rid of this folder permanently?
