Preferred Solution: my quick video to pin folder to taskbar

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 http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi, I am working on a laptop with Win 7 x64 Home Premium, SP1.

It was recently pretty badly infected, but has been thoroughly cleaned, and all additional bloatware uninstalled.

I am unable to unlock the taskbar, nor able to pin any shortcuts to it. There's also a strange folder that keeps appearing on the desktop, called %localappdata%, with a subfolder called 'elevatedDiagnostics'.

I enabled gpedit.msc. I have tried using the sevenforums supplied bat file to restore all Group Policies, to no avail. I searched inside of gpedit to the location that controls the locking of the taskbar, and it appears normal, as 'not configured', as are all the other entries under 'start menu and taskbar'.

I am trying to repair this without doing a full re-install of windows. I'd actually rather know *why* this is happening, and fix it manually.

thanks for any help!

A:Can't unlock Taskbar, Can't Pin to Taskbar, odd folder on desktop.

It often isn't enough to clean up a badly infected PC so I would strongly consider doing a Clean Reinstall Windows 7 especially if this is factory-installed Win7 which is the worst install of Win7 one can have anyway.

Otherwise run a full scan with Malwarebytes and SuperAntiSpyware followed by SFC /SCANNOW Command.

Hi All

Whenever I restart the computer or something goes wrong with explorer.exe and it has to close down, the items in QL all revert back to alphabetical order. I have it set up so the ones I use more often, are displayed and the rest are hidden away in the extension. Is there a way I can 'lock' these items in place?
 

A:Quick Launch in the Taskbar

hello, I had this problem before also, Right click on your taskbar near the quick launch icons and scroll down till you see "lock the taskbar", it worked for me.
also if you have alot of icons in your QL grab the dividing line with your mouse and move it to the right a little and you should be able to see more.

I just recently downloaded a new version of Quick Time. It put Quick Time and Quick Time Player on my task bar. Is it necessary to have it there to watch downloaded video? I know I can remove it by going to startup but would that effect performance? Also when I installed a new cdrw/dvdrom that came with Nero express software, incd was part of the software package. Do Nero and incd work together? Do I need to keep incd in startup in order for Nero to work correctly? Thank you in advance for your help.

Today I noticed that there is a small problem in the height of the Win7 taskbar if I select Large icons in the Quick Launch toolbar. (before I always used small icons)

In the Large view the Win7 taskbar doesn't fill the space vertically but is aligned to the top leaving some empty space at the bottom.
Please check the attached screenshots to better understand what I mean.

I know is really a small detail, but maybe someone knows a way around it anyway^^

I keep 'losing' my quick-launch icons on the left-hand side of the task-bar. The icons first become inoperative, and shortly afterwards vanish altogether. Hovering the mouse pointer over the quick-launch corner does briefly produce the outline of buttons, and the "tip box", but nothing further. They do return if I re-boot, but are soon gone again. If I right-click-Open Folder, Win explorer opens the folder containing the links, and clicking on those links does work. Any ideas folks?

This problem has been present since MS pushed WinXP Pro SP3.

A:Help with adding quick launch and taskbar items

Right click on All Programs and select explore. Expand “Programs” and drag or paste a shortcut for the program you want to run at startup into the “Startup” folder.

You can just drag icons from your desktop to the quick launch.

To add stuff to the system tray (which is what I think you want to do) you can get one of dozens of freeware tray managers. This one looks like it will do what you want: http://www.gregorybraun.com/TrayTool.html If you don’t like that have a look through this list: http://www.nonags.com/nonags/launch32.html

You might have a look at RunIt. You just right click on the top of the screen and a menu drops down. You can put anything you want in the menu. It is a lot easier than looking through all of the icons in the tray: http://www.webattack.com/get/runit.shtml

Hi all I am fairly new to Windows 7 and its quick launch taskbar. However when I started using it once I clicked on a quick launch icon it stacked it to itself after opening. for instance Firefox or Chrome. Now however when I click one it quick launch icon does not "stack" after opening it creates another icon that then does stack. It now does this for everything on my quick launch. Any ideas. I know it is not a big deal but it drives the old lady crazy and I hate hearing about it LOL Thanks for looking and your help.

A:Windows 7 taskbar quick launch Does not stack creates new

Hello Nick, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Technically Quick Launch is a taskbar toolbar and not a pinned item. This is why when you open/run a item from Quick Launch, it will still have a separate icon appear on the taskbar for it's opened window. There's nothing that you could do about this other than pinning the item/program in Quick Launch on the takbar itself instead. This way you could run it from the taskbar instead of Quick Launch.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

So lets say you have a program open, and its not pinned to the taskbar, calculator for example. You close it, and the animation for the programs icon on the taskbar disappears smoothly. Now, if I pin the calculator onto the taskbar and open it (or any current taskbar pinned item) and close it, the icon disappears with a sort of a chunky, or "blocky" animation leaving just the normal taskbar icon.

My question is, should this happen or is my Windows install lagging somehow? Can anyone recreate this and see if you get a similiar result? Simply, non taskbar pinned apps icons seem to close smoother, while ones that are pinned dont really have an animation and just close with maybe 3 different frames.

A:Quick Question About Closing Apps/ Taskbar (Could someone test this? )

Hello Keyes,

This would be the Animations in the taskbar visual effects setting. It's normal for there to be a slight delay with the animation. If it's to long or jagged, then you may have something else running that's using a lot of resources causing a temporary longer delay for this.

If you like, you could turn off (uncheck) this setting to have them be instant instead.

Hello Skippy, and welcome to Eight Forums.

Does anyone know how to get rid of these labels altogether? I suspect it may mean a visit o the registry.

Hi everyone!

I joined this community to get a solution to my problem that came up yesterday. I have a Toshiba laptop with Vista Home Premium installed. In the course of my work, my taskbar buttons for my running programs suddenly disappeared. The quick launch icons all showed and expanded to the right with the dotted separator beside the start button visible but the second dotted separator after the last quick launch icon which you can drag also disappeared. System restore did not work and always resulted in errors. Now, I'm just using alt+tab to change windows but I'm not used to it and is uncomfortable for me.

Any suggestions Friends on what I should do? I hope you can help me with my problem.

I installed Quick Launch on my Taskbar (Windows 7, 64-bit).

I don't know how to position it next to the Start button.

The area in the Taskbar between the Start button and the Quick Launch toolbar appears to be reserved to display open applications.

Dragging the Quick Launch toolbar all the way to the left doesn't work. It stops 2 inches from the Start button, allowing room for open application icons.

Does anyone know how to fix this?

Thanks.

Hi,

I am having some trouble with my taskbar, I went online to find out how to do the Quick Launch thing, but when I tried it, it doesn't seem to appear properly. Now there's a gap in the taskbar, where I can't put any toolbars in it. And also, when I open programs, they all appear in the gap!

Hi,

The image below shows my current taskbar when I open a window that has a quick-launch icon (e.g. Opera) as you can see it combines the window and the quick-launch icon together however I would like it to create a separate taskbar item rather than doing this. Would this be possible? Are there any programs that fix this? Sorry if this seems like a vague question but it's quite hard to explain when I can't actually show what I want it to look like.

I somehow accidently deleted the (default) "Quick Launch" folder in my: "C:\Users\Luc\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer"

So I created a new folder called "Quick Launch" again, and re-added the Quick Launch bar to my Windows taskbar. Now everything works fine and I can add quick launch icons into it, but sometimes after I reboot my laptop all the icons are completely out of order again. So I can put them back in order again (like: 1. Desktop, 2. MSN, 3. Paint) but on the most random moments it gets unsorted again after a reboot. (like: 1. Paint, 2. Desktop, 3. MSN)

Could this be a folder option I forgot to set or is it some bug within my Windows 7 installation?

Note: I never had this on my previous Windows 7 installation, but I never accidently removed my Quick Launch folder there.

By default when you install a Video card, it disables the onboard video. You can enable it again in the bios, if that is what you want, but this always causes problems. Your Video card should have 2 outputs (DVI and VGA) to run 2 monitors already, you don't need to enable the onboard video.

A:Folder on taskbar won't maximise

Hello, this has something to do with your dual screen setup, it sounds like the folder may be stuck off the viewable screen, so whatever you try to do, it is doing it but you cannot see it.
Make sure you are working strictly with the Laplink monitor only, so the tv must be physically disconnected from the laptop and in the screen resolution window, you have to ensure that no other screen is being detected and that your laptop screen is running at his native resolution, then restart the computer. If that did not help, then go into the directory where the folder actually exists, make a copy of it including all the files within, then delete the original.

Hi guys, I've been working on this problem
For three days now to no avail. I bought a new graphics card thinking my old ati radeon 4670 was the problem ( now have geforce GTs 450) and then bought a new 2tb Seagate drive thinking I would just try a new install of windows 7 In case it was a driver/virus etc. issue( didn't want to lose my old partition in case it wasn't ) So now I'm here searching for possible solutions and haven't found any yet.

It's only on normal startup, safe mode doesn't give me any problems so I'm at a loss here, I think it may be either a psu or maybe bad memory. I ran a windows memory check and it had no problems any ideas would be fantastic!!

Here's a video I just took of startup so you can see what happens, it is hooked up to a 42inch tv via a dvi cable.

Hi ... I'm trying to help a 75 year old friend of mine with his computer problems. Gateway computer running XP OS. The first problem is: We drag a shortcut icon (Google) from the desktop to the quick launch tool bar. But, after a shutdown and restart, the item is no longer on the QL tool bar. There is no problem with the three items we added previously, Outlook Express, Desktop, Notepad. We have tried various combinations of locked and unlocked tool bar settings. We have made sure that the icon is not "hidden" on the other side of the dividing bar.
The second problem: On every boot up an open folder appears on the screen. The folder is named  C:\windows , and it is empty. We have tried entering System Configuration (msconfig) and looking for it in the startup tab. It isn't there. We don't know where else to look.

The second of your little problems - have you tried just right clicking on this folder icon and then clicking delete in the contextual menu that appears ? I can't think of an answer to your first one off-hand, I have always used icons on the desktop itself.

Hey i am using a Ati Radeon 7000 64MB PCI

And i was wondering was it ok or a good idea to change some of the settings in the control panel / direct 3d options and open GL options or leave them at DEFAULT ?

ALso, is it ok to change the Refresh rate to sa 85HZ or 60HZ or leave it on default, which is: OPTIMAL?????

And my last question, does ATI Radeon 7000 support DirectX 9.C ?

I ask this because i notice when playing GTA III, like the first time you install , and when you run the game it checks your video card and see what is the best settings can be use when playing. Only thing, when going back into the DXDIAG thing , my DDI VERSION goes back to 7, when it was at 9 before running GTA III.

Thanks.

i personally use Open GL and max up the settings.. with ur card, id prolly use open gl and leave most of the settigns at default.. and instead.. change the visual settings ingame (go to video settings in GTA3)

as for refresh rate.. i use 60hz... as for if i put it up higher.. everything gets blurry.. n sometimes i can see lines/kinda like flashing.. yea.. odd.. i dono.. in this case for ME.. optimal would be 60hz... play around with the refresh rate on urs.. n see which one is best for ur eyes..

Hi, I just bought a new video card, it's a Gigabyte nVidia 8400GS. I just put it in the PCI-E slot and was about to plug it in to the power supply but for some reason I can't find a power connector on the card. It's not a defect as the picture on the website is the same as the card.

There's only a little two-pin connector (like the one the fan is plugged in to) but no other ports, is it possible for it to get it's power from the PCI-E port or am I being stupid and missing something vital?

I can take a photo if needed but I'm pretty sure I'm just missing something

Thanks,
Marlon
 

A:Solved: Really quick question - Video Card

What Model number is the card? I checked the 8400GS cards on the Gigabyte site and none of them seemed to have a power connector. So I would say that it indeed does draw its power from the PCIe Slot.

Can anyone suggest whether 6600 -> 8400 would be a step up for the game box? It's a much newer card, but it's also one of the cheapest ones available.
 

A:Quick question: compare video cards

For a real computer, the 8x00 cards will be faster.

For a Mac the 6600 since it has drivers.

Need Help…Quick Video Card Question

I have an HP 9040 desktop. For the last week or so I’ve been getting 0x116 and 0x124 stop messages. The fan on the video card died months ago and now I think the video card died as well.

My question: When I restart the computer, the fans run, the dvd drive flashes, the wifi lights up, but the hard drive led blinks only once and the computer makes no attempt to boot, and I get a “no signal” message from the monitor.

If the video card dies, the computer will not boot?

Thanks for any help
