Preferred Solution: ie icon not showing in shortcuts and address bar

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Have you tried this?
To reset any incorrect files in the operating system in Windows XP do this:
Click on Start > Run and type in "sfc /scannow" (without the quotes) and Press Enter.
You will be asked to insert the Windows XP c.d.

The computer should reboot, if not, reboot and try it.

I have a toolbar on my taskbar titled "Programs". It has about eight folders in it. I made another toolbar, and placed it directly adjacent to the Programs toolbar, to obscure the eight folders and force it to be a dropdown menu.

Trouble is, as soon as I lock my taskbar, right next to the arrow that displays the eight items of my Programs toolbar in menu-form, one of the eight items is showing up as an icon, as if the other toolbar isn't close enough to the Programs toolbar in order to completely obscure the eight items.

Here's what I mean in graphic form:

It's bugging me to no end. Anyone else had this problem/resolved it?

A:Toolbar on taskbar should only be showing an arrow but is showing icon

Hello thewonkits, and welcome to Seven Forums.

I notice this happens when using small icons for a toolbar. If you like, you could unlock the taskbar, right click on the dotted separator line to the left of the two top far left toolbars (one at a time) click on View and Large Icons, then lock the taskbar to see if that may look ok to you. It will make the top row a bit bigger though.

Hopefully someone may know a better way to hide that bit of icon poking out when locked.

You guys probbaly heard of oblytile the custom tile maker for win 8.

It has an option to convert shortcuts to tiles but its not detecting most of my shortcuts.I know you can manually choose the program path but it doesnt work when different shortcuts share the same .exe .

For example the Office Infopath 2013 is in fact 2 programs : InfoPath Filler and InfoPath Designer and Indeed ther are 2 shortcuts.But they are not detected by Oplytile so I have to point the program path to the Infopath.exe. The problem is that the tile created opens the Infopath Filler and not Designer which I inted to use more often.

So how should I proceeed in order to add to oblytile shortcuts list the above programs or maybe there is a way to make the Infopath.exe to open the Designer instead the Filler?

A:[Oblytile] why its not showing most existing shortcuts ?

First I've heard of this program, so had to download and play around with it for awhile. Really cannot find a use for it, and attempting to recreate your problem; well that just didn't happen. Truly sorry.

On my second drive D:\ I want to create a shortcut in D:\Folder_1\ to open a file in D:\Folder_1\Folder_2\

But Windows converts the resulting relative address to C:\ drive, not D:\ drive

Am I tied to using a .VBS file as the shortcut trigger ?
- or am I missing something in my "Location" string-path ?
- or have I stumbled over a Windows bug ?

Location: ..\Folder_2\MyFile ... is auto changed by Windows to C:\Folder_2\MyFile cannot be found
- when I want D:\*\Folder_2\MyFile

D: is not a static drive letter.

Thank you

A:Shortcuts and relative address

There is a way for short-cut to open a particular folder directly.

If there is no folder icon on the task bar, then open the windows explorer.
You can select the folder whether in C: or D: drives, click and drag to the task bar.
It will auto create this Folder icon, if there is not Folder Icon on the task bar.
At the Windows Explorer, select any number of folders, by click on folder and drag to the Folder Icon.

To access directly, right-click on the Folder Icon.
Then select the folder that you want, and it will open directly on the folder.

I have a group of shortcuts in the Recent folder and I want to copy those shortcuts and convert the shortcuts into text showing the target where the shortcut points to. Is there any way of doing this?

A:Can shortcuts be converted to a text showing the target?

To find the target you can simply right-click the shortcut, and select Properties which will display the target already highlighted, click on Ctrl-C (to copy), open up a blank Notepad window, and click on Ctrl-v (to paste) in the Notepad window.

The problem All the shortcuts from C Documents and Settings All Users Start Menu Programs have disappeared from my start menu The ones from C Documents and Settings lt menu showing in "All Shortcuts the from not Users" start current user gt Start Menu Programs are still shown I have spent Shortcuts from "All Users" not showing in the start menu the weekend trying to fix this to no avail so hopefully someone can give me some new ideas I m running XP SP on a Toshiba laptop I can t be sure exactly when this happened but I noticed it on Friday and I am certain this problem did not exist the previous weekend In that period of time the only software installs were an update for Keepass and an update for Mathcad It is possible that something else notified me an update was available and I just installed it without thinking about it but if so it would only be something like Java or Adobe flash If I go to C Documents and Settings All Users Start Menu Programs the shortcuts are all there and they are not hidden they just don t appear on the start menu The obvious way to fix this was to just roll back to a recent restore point where the problem does not exist Unfortunately I could not get any restore point to work even when doing the restore entirely in safe mode i e start the restore in safe mode and finish it in safe mode After a lot of messing around I came to the conclusion that the restore point cache was corrupted I confirmed that by turning System Restore off and back on to clear the cache Sure enough I can now create a restore point and restore it with no problems even when not in safe mode with Norton AV running but of course it means I can t fix the start menu by restoring to an earlier date Neither Norton AV nor Malwarebytes turn up any sign of malware other than a few tracking cookies anyway I ran chkdsk and it shows no errors A possibly useful piece of information is that when I installed Tweaking com which unfortunately does not have a fix for this problem for all users I get the error Could not create uninstall shortcut Tweaking com Windows Repair All in One Uninstall Tweaking com - Windows Repair All in One If I look in C Documents and Settings All Users Start Menu Programs no new folder or shortcut was created I can create one manually though So maybe it s some sort of permissions problem I have checked that nothing messed with the account permissions and sure enough I still have full admin rights and I can make changes to the shortcuts I found a MS hotfix that looked lie it might be helpful http support microsoft com kb because I thought it might force a start menu fix However it just throws the error Setup has detected that the Service Pack version of the system is newer than the update you are applying There is no need to install this update So much for that idea I ran the System File Checker with sfc scannow from the command prompt It didn t turn up anything Based on this site http bcrawfordjr wordpress com programs-menu-for-all-users-profile-is-missing-from-the-start-menu-start-menu I launched the group policy editor and looked under User Configuration Administrative Templates There is no entry for Start Menu and Taskbar I thought that maybe I could force a fix using the information from this site though so I added the two suggested keys to the registry and double checked they were correct using regedit They didn t make any difference They are still there so perhaps since they were not a solution I should remove them That s everything I can think of Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

Hi , i have this IBM Netvista with win2000. The problem is , that suddenly , most of the system shortcuts ( IE, outlook , control panel , etc..) doesnt work , i just get msgs like this: "Cant find the file c:\program files\internet explorer\iexplorer.exe". Like if the references to the exe files where bad or something. The weird thing is that , for example i click my pc , then click the Folders icon, the folder tree opens at left..., then i click on internet explorer at bottom... and the IE windows activates and i can surf the web normally . Overall..the thing is that a lot of icons wont work ( some system icons , and even some external soft icons , like kazaa for example ) . Does anyone has any clue about whats going on ? thx a lot.

Please see the picture. (folder names are deleted by me)

OK, yesterday there were those 3 shortcuts in top, 3 directories, and 'notepad, calculator, ms paint', I use all of those everyday, so it's not mistaken.

And today I suddenly discovered that calculator and ms paint shortcuts are gone.

So I checked the directory, and- (as you can see in the picture)
1.calculator shortcut is still there, but hidden in the start menu. paint shortcut is removed.

So I googled for information and did what I could, I ran unhide.exe, anti-virus(avast), and anti-malware(malwarebyte), and I think my pc is clean, no virus or malware deteced. and calculator shortcut is still not showing.

I'm afraid if it's a sign of some remote manipulation from some trojan or someone.

How can I solve this?

I have a weird thing with Icons, that I just can't get to work.

I'm gonna try to explain.
When I have installed 2 programs, Fraps and Avast Anti Virus, they automatically create an Icon on the desktop, but I don't want to keep those icons on the desktop, so I pin them to my start up menu and delete from desktop. But after I do that, they lose their Icon. So when I open the program it has no more icon, just like an Unknown file... What should I do..

A:Start Menu shortcuts lose icon?

Hello Aion, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You lost the icon in the Start Menu since you deleted that shortcut's source on the desktop. To keep the icon, you will need to either "move" the shortcut from the desktop to the Start Menu All Programs area, or pin the program's EXE file to the Start Menu instead.

Before any content is put into the folder, the desktop shortcut icon is the generic 'folder' style. Once graphics are put into the folder, the icon changes to show a 'folder-with-contents' - so far so good. When those contents are deleted, the icon for the desktop shortcut does NOT revert to the generic 'folder' style. How to force a 'refresh' ? F5 does NOT succeed.

For example, when I click "change icon" in the firefox shortcut properties, I get the message "Windows can't find the file %programfiles%\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe.

A:Problem with shortcuts program icon in users account

In your own account, try rightclicking on the Program File's .exe to Send to Desktop.

It's likely that the program's installer writes the desktop icon to all User Desktops if it's installed for all users. But creating a shortcut in your User account should limit itself to your desktop.

Hi everyone,

I have a problem that I hope I will be able to solve with your help. On my WinXP laptop, I used to have all the function keys assigned to programs to be executed when pressing F2, F3 etc. Now I have deleted those program files, and every time I press one of the function keys, Windows starts searching for that file, instead of doing the normal function (eg in Word 2003: F7 - check spelling). How can I change this back to normal?

Thanks for your help

I'm running Vista 64-bit, OneCare firewall, and have just downloaded and run ESET AV.

The IP address does not resolve, and doesn't seem to exist, but the fact that my machine is trying to reach out bugs me.

I found the problem on Airsnare, and caught the outbound ICMP request via Ethereal. Inside of a Linksys router, with only a non-standard VNC port forwarded to this machine.

Is there a way to correct this where I don't have to manually change each one but where the change would apply to all program's webpage shortcuts? I would like for the webpage icons to display the FF icon.

Many thanks for any help.

You will need to rewrite the IE8 code to change this, which I do not think you will be able to.

Does anyone by chance know what this means on Internet Explorer 11 address bar? The icon I'm referring to is the box with the upwards arrow coming out of it? Never seen it before?

A:"send to" menu showing hard/removable drive shortcuts

Oh, this is a good one. I didn't know about this until I found it just now:

Hidden Registry Settings for the "Send To" Menu in Windows 7 - The Winhelponline Blog

Scroll down to, or use Ctrl+F to find, the NoDrivesInSendToMenu section.

I had to do a clean install on a new hard drive and since then have not been able to get my task bar balloons to show. For example, when using the Safely Remove Hardware icon, I don't get the Now Safe To Remove balloon. I only get a popping sound. When running a Mcafee virus scans, I can't view the scan progress when resting the cursor over the icon. I do get the identifying pop up and that is all. I've tried the log off and on tip but it didn't work. Can anyone help me?

I solved my problem with TweakUI. It had the option to "enable balloon tips."
