Toolbars When Right Click On Taskbar


I just upgraded to windows 7-64 bit home premium from vista-64 bit. Now i notice that when i rt-click on the taskbar, and then select the toolbars option, i see the usual ones like the quick lunch, links, adress, desktop, but then i also see two that i have never seen before; they are itunes and tablet pc input panel.

I do have itunes application, but why does it appear as a toolbar option? Besides, when i click it, nothing happens. And, i really don't know anything about the tablet pc input - may be this later is a normal option that i had never paid any attention. I'd appreciate any help in resolving the itunes toolbar issue.

Moving Toolbars Off Taskbar Onto Desktop

I am a great fan of toolbars (i do not like having a million icons on my desktop, and do not display desktop icons). Instead, i have (with xp, for example) created toolbars of related programs from folders of shortcuts. I then pull them off the taskbar onto the desktop to a convenient spot. I find that in win7 i cannot get them off the taskbar! I get the 4-way move arrow, but it does nothing except move the toolbar back and forth on the taskbar. I usually have about six toolbars and that is too many to have on the taskbar all the time! Sniffle, sob, weep!

Preventing Windows To Wiping Out Custom Toolbars From Taskbar

How to prevent windows to wiping out custom toolbars from the taskbar, i have a big issue with windows 7. I have two custom tollbars in my taskbar, one to simulate a windows xp quick launch and the other to open frequently used text documents. Each time i make a change, for example in ie8 internet options and restart the computer, these custom tollbars are wiped out and disabled. This is not the first time it happens. Last time it happen after having installed a windows update.

How to prevent these unwanted changes? They are very annoying because i have to do a lot of work putting the toolbars again, positioning them correctly and arranging the quick launch icons correctly. I don't like the windows behavior consisting to void years of user's habits each time a new operating system is released and much less its attempts to reset users settings like this. Ny suggestions?

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).

Temporary Corrupt Toolbars And Icons

I recently upgraded from vista to windows 7. Lately when i launch an office product 2007 (outlook, excel) the toolbars become corrupt. If i mouse over the toolbar it clears up. When i close down the applications and go  back to my desktop, sometimes the icons on the desktop will corrupt. If i right click on the desktop and choose refresh, the icons clear up again. This issue does not occur when using ie or when i am viewing an actual digital picture. The issue only occurs in the toolbars. Is there a repair function or an faq that addresses this nuisance issue?

One Click Print From Outlook

I have outlook 2007. I receive pdf invoices. With xp, i'd right click the attachment and click print. The file would print. In windows 7 rc i get a prompt "open this file with acrobat" click ok, file opens in acrobat, click what used to be print using last settings in acrobat, print preferences appear, click ok to print. Then close file and back to outlook for the next one.

The default application for pdf is set to acrobat. Please help, this is driving me mad and despite everything in windows 7 looking great this will send me back to xp if i can't find the fix.

Mouse Click Ability Disable

I have a 1. 2 year-old daughter who likes to discover my laptop whenever possible. Thing is, that she is able to disable the mouse click ability just by sweeping over the keyboard; e.g. 30-40 keys pressed for a minute or two. Things do work, mouse moves, but when i go over something, it doesn't show any change or reaction for the mouse. It is if the mouse doesn't exist in the same reality as the computer -> a ghostly mouse.

It sometimes goes over in couple of minutes. Other times it stays until i restart the whole system. Today i tried ctrl+alt+del and at first there was no mouse activity either, but ~10 seconds it started working again. Any tips? How to fix-it or know the specific reason. P. S. Windows 7 pro x64

Aero Right Click List Problem

I've just noticed that after i used aero incompatibility program and windows automatically changed my scheme to basic, and when i closed the program (macromedia flash 8, just don't know how to use newer version :'( ) and windows automatically change my scheme to aero, now the problem comes, after i click on any right-click list, a command i clicked still displayed, i've tried restarting explorer, not working, but it works if i re-change windows scheme and still, the problem persist.

Here's some screenshot that might help:

Whenever I Click Any Video Online The Browser Freezes

I have windows 7 professional and whenever i click any video online the browser freezes and only way to close it is shut the program down as it just freezes up and program says not responding. It does the same thing in both firefox and microsoft explorer. I am not trying to watch it with any unusual media players and it does the same thing even when i went directly to youtube and tested opening any movie as i figured youtube is the most common video site/file format so if i cant open youtube i have a problem.

I bought this computer 1 month ago and haven't installed any media players and the only software i installed/updated since purchase that runs thru the internet would be acrobat, picassa, quicken, and filezilla ftp. I have the most current updates versions of microsoft windows 7 os, windows explorer, and firefox . What is going on ?

Right Click Explorer Crash Win7 X64

I am having an issue with windows explorer crashing after right clicking. This only seems to happen after my computer is on for 10+ hours continuously, and restarting the computer fixes the problem until another 10 hours has passed.

Currently using windows 7 ultimate x64. I've been doing some research and some think it is the antivirus. While using the x64 rc i had the same problem with avg. Now that i'm on the retail version i get the same problem with microsoft security essentials, so really i have no idea what is causing the problem.

I just installed the retail version yesterday, so i don't have many programs installed. Just firefox, feeddemon, itunes and ms office, all with the latest updates.

System specs, if it helps:

Dell xps 410
Windows 7 ultimate x64
Intel pentium d 820
768 mb nvidia geforce 9600 gso
4 gig ram

Can't Click Icons After Upgrade To Office 2010

I recently moved to office 2010 (from 2007). No problems with the process, and the office programs work fine. However, now when i start the pc and get to the windows logon screen (i have three user accounts set up) i can't click on my own logon icon. If i hit enter i get to my wife's logon (she's the first icon, reading from left to right). From her account i can then log off, come back to the logon screen and every-thing's fine.

I've also discovered if i use the keyboard i can arrow to my icon, hit enter and get my password prompt. Possibly related: there's also a very intermittent (and hard to describe) problem where when i click within a running application/window, or even on the windows start button, the behavior is like sending that window or application to the back - it doesn't register mouse clicks, and i have to alt-tab tp bring it back to the 'front' so i can use the keyboard instead.

As far as i can see the mouse is fine, and i plugged another mouse in yesterday and got the same results. As i say, this is very intermittent but i hadn't seen it before going to office 2010.system is a dell xps-710 with 4gb ram running win 7. Video is nvidia geforce 7900 gtx; sound is soundblaster x-fi.

Shortcut - Right Click - Properties - Target - Can't Type Into Target

I just purchased a dell netbook, with windows 7. I am installing a game called guild wars. As most fans of the game know, you can download the entire game client and updates, by adding the command -imag at the end of the "target" under properties after right clicking on the guild wars shortcut. I was successful on installing the game, but i can't type in the "target" box in order to type -imag at the end of the directory (c://. -Imag) if anyone can help me with this problem i would really appreciate it. Once again the question is, how do i make it so i can actually type in the "target" box?

When Click A Drive Message Says " No Association "

When i double-click any drive from the "computer" menu, it brings up the windows 7 "no association" dialog saying that the program has no default association. When i go to right-click the a drive, instead of displaying "open" as the first option in the context menu, it lists "cmd" which is obviously the command prompt. Can anyone assist me in making it go back to normal? I believe it's a registry entry that is causing the issue, but i don't know where to look in the registry. I believe the issue was caused by a virus. I'm not too sure.

Taskbar Bug

Found a small bug in the highlighting of applications on the taskbar. Tested with windows explorer, haven't tested any others. Always reproducible on my machine.

Open two windows. Show the previews by mousing over the icon. Mouse over one of the windows, and hover over the close button. Once the window comes to the front, close it using the close button on the preview, then move your mouse off the preview so that the preview will close soon. The highlight stays on the icon no matter where you move the mouse, until you focus another window or mouse over a taskbar icon again.
