Cannot Open A New Window

I have a problem when i am online on windows 7. When i am on a website and click a link that requires a new window to be opened nothing happens. No new window. Nothing. This is a problem when i am doing my online banking because i can't open the page to view bill pay or my credit card info. This happens on any link that requires a new window to be opened. Pop-up blockers are off and i've tried right clicking and selecting "open in new tab".

Open Link In A New Window Not Available

When using some links i'd like to open the link in a new window using the shift key or right clicking and selecting "open new window". However, this feature is not always available. For example, when right clicking on some links, i get other options but not "open new window". So i hold down the shift key and it does not open the link in a new window. The right clicking "new window" option and shift key, is available on some links but not all. I have windows 7 ie 8

How To Open Folders In The Same Window ?

I set the folder options to open the folder in the same window, however, when i double click any folder to open, it opens in its own window, but i can open it in the same window but i have to right click on each folder and select "open" to open it in the same window. I want to open folders normally in the same window without always clicking right click and select "open".

Cannot Click Taskbar In An Open Window

My taskbar is un-clickable, i had to press ctrl alt del, so i can click the start menu and application that is pinned on the taskbar. But i can click the desktop icons, but when i open it (ex. If i double click my computer) i cant also click anything even the min, max and close buttons.

I already scan for worms, spyware and virus and it detects nothing. I already check the "regedit" and no explorer.exe and iexplore.exe sub-folders are in the folder of image file execution option
I already do the sfc /scannow and the result is no error found.

Before, a message sometimes pops up saying that explorer.exe has stop from running then it restarts but still i can able to open and click the applications in the desktop and taskbar then after a week or 2, another message is popping up pwdbnk.exe is stop from running(an application for the biometric finger print).

Hard Drive, Devices Window Takes Long Time To Open

When i open the "computer" window, to see the hard drive, devices, etc. It's taking five minutes for it to load. Why is it taking so long when the drives and devices should just pop up? Click on the start icon, move over to my computer, then wait forever for it to load.

It doesn't make sense why, this system is analyzing the content for so long when i just bought tis computer. I have a mac, and i know this is different. But my dell laptop, and my wife's old computer doesn't nearly take this long. If i right click over computer, open in new window appears, and it acts as it always has. Why the unnecessary difference between the two. It should be fixed.microsoft shouldn't let this go on for long.

Window Flies Off Screen To Right

I know something like this has been posted but the answer doesn't seem to work for me so i'm trying again. I have a window open for example the internet. When i click on the icon on the bottom of the screen all i see is a little box shooting off the screen to the right and when i click it back on again it comes flying back to the icon. Nothing i have done seems to bring it back open on the screen. I have run my mouse over to the right and clicked and grabbed and pulled but nothing comes back on my main screen. I've shut down the program and reopened it still does the same thing, i've rebooted my computer. I've looked all over for answers and no one seems to be able to help me. Maybe one of you can give me some advice. It's a very frustrating situation.

Full Screen Browsing With Ie

This is not a question but a suggestion. I couldn't find any more appropriate place to post it. I use full-screen browsing as much as possible to maximize my screen real estate, and have found a few things that would help make this easier.

1- when a new page is loading, show the status of the connection to the website on the main screen. The problem is that the connection progress is normally displayed to the user on a browser tab, status bar or system tray, but all these areas are hidden in full-screen mode so there is no information for the user to know the status of his connection attempt.

2- when opening a new tab in full-screen mode (either with the cursor or using ctrl+t), the new tab opens and then the screen immediately maximizes again. Of course, opening a new tab is only the first step in the process. We still need to enter a web address, or search term, or select from the favorites or history menus, so the menus and tabs should remain visible until the user has launched a website. Or, ie can go back to full-screen after the user clicks on a space inside the new tab.

3- as far as i know there is no shortcut key to access the internet search dialog box like there is to access the address bar (f4). I think one of the function keys should be used to give one-button instant access to the search field.

Fyi i am using ie8 on vista home premium, if that matters. I think this functionality would be beneficial to users of all different versions, especially given the preponderance of laptops, netbooks, and the upcoming release of chrome os!

Help And Support Window Flying Off Screen

I am running windows 7 professional 64 bit. I have a few problems that are all interconnected. It started when i tried to install games that were on dvd as opposed to cd - my drive doesn't read them, as if theres nothing in the drive. So i tried to seek help by going into the device manager. This led me to the problem i'm having with windows - when i click for help and support, i can see the blue question-mark icon in the taskbar but the actual window flies off to the side! Theres no way of grabbing it. Its like the window is shy lol. The monitor is really big (22"). Everything else is good but its just the help and support window leaps off the screen to the side.

Full Screen Anti Alias

Hey, today i have a question about disabling the full screen anti-alias. I installed windows 7 over my windows vista os back in october when windows 7 was first released in stores. I had a few games installed on my pc prior to me upgrading to windows 7 but since i've tried installing any game on my pc now that it runs on windows 7, the game either won't play or it advises me to disable the full screen anti-alias to play the games i install. The thing is, i don't know where to go to disable
The full screen anti-alias. Hopefully that is in fact the resolution in resolving this issue. Otherwise i will not be able to play the games i enjoy on my pc. Do help me out with this issue please.

Display Does Not Fill Full Screen

I use two display in an extended desktop configuration, a 19 inch and a 22 inch. After upgrading from vista to windows 7 professional i have a problem if i set my smaller display as the main display. This problem did not occur until i upgraded. The problem is that with the smaller display as the main, the picture on the secondary screen only fills part of the display and not the full display. If i reverse the setting and use the larger display as the main, then it fills the screen and the second display is also full screen width.

Getting Games To Run Full Screen

I bought this new toshiba satellite laptop last week. It has windows 7. None of my games will run full screen. I never had any problem with them on either of my other computers or systems xp or vista. I have w7 home premium.

I am just sick with trying to figure this out. The only option after this is to simply return the new laptop and buy a used one that runs on xp or vista. If there is anyone who could help me, i would be eternally grateful. I am so upset with all of this. I own a gaming site and none of my 33 games will work now with the windows 7 program.

Full Screen Aspect Ratio Problem

I have a new windows 7 laptop with a wide-screen display, and i've connected it via vga to a 4:3 aspect ratio projector. Of course, i set the display resolution to a 4:3 aspect ratio to compensate, and this works just fine on the desktop, but as soon as i attempt to run a full-screen overlay, say from a media player or a powerpoint presentation, the system makes the assumption that it's still in a wide-screen format, and inserts black bars on the left and right to compensate, which overcompensates on the already 4:3 ratio screen, resulting in everything being scrunched up in the center and stretched vertically.

Hdtv Desktop Output - Full Screen

When i first connected my hdtv via hdmi and duplicated the desktop on both laptop and tv, i got a full screen image (at 1366x768). Now, i get a small sized desktop in the middle of the hdtv, unless i only display the desktop on the hdtv (at 1080 lines) and not the laptop. How do i change this back? Also, i used to have the functionality when i hit fn+f5 that it cycled through a range of different display output modes. However, now i need to use windows+p to cycle through projector modes. Any ideas what's changed?

Assassins Creed 1 Not Playing Full Screen

I have an amd 3. 2 quad with a 5770ati graphics card all my gaming graphics is great, and all my other games run to full screen with no boarders (stretch from graphics card is ok). Oh an windows 7, great. My problem is only with assassins 1 which seems to run with a windows boarder of some type that i don't recognize, it has in the top left corner a white rectangle with a small blue square in the middle an to the right of that the name assassins creed.

The bottom also has the task bar, the best i can do to make it full screen is right click on the top bar an hit move then just click the bottom bar an the task bar disappears but the top one remains.

An if i go to close to the top during a game with my right mouse button on the move box comes up again. I don't know if this problem is with the game or a windows setting, i'm not very good with my new computer or windows yet.

Disappearing Buttons Minimize, Size, Close

I installed windows 7 64-bit version a few days ago and i have a problem with minimize, resize, close buttons. When i am opening the new window, browser etc. Buttons are visible, but when i am hover (in fact onmouseout event) they are disappearing. I didn't erase also any drivers, however i installed the newest nvidia graphics driver. It is still the same problem.

Minimize, Maximize And Close Button Disappears

For some reason the minimize, maximize and close buttons disappear on top of my windows. This is so for all applications. The buttons are not visible, but they still work. For instance, if i click in the top right corner of the application, the application will close.
 
I don't know what causing this. Sometimes it happens just after i started my pc. Sometimes it doesn't occur for over an hour. I've tried to detect the reason, but i wasn't able.
 
I've surfed the internet trying to find a solution, but couldn't find anything that works (they speak of nvidia drivers often, but there isn't a nvidia driver in my laptop. ) Does anyone have a solution for this problem?

Auto Reboot Problem

I have an acer aspire m7720. It has 6gb ram, a 920 intel core i7 and nvidia geforce gt230 with 64-bit windows 7. I have been using it for 6 months with no problems but lately, actually just today, it started to restart automatically after a few minutes. Sometimes it doesn't even reach the user login page and it will restart. The problem has gotten slightly better, i think, as it only restarts every hour or so now.

I don't think theres a blue screen of death, but i may be wrong, as i have already disabled the 'autorestart in the case of a system failure' option.
