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.

A:Export Start Menu Layout (Tile Arrangement) without PS ? Help...

Hi Audax, welcome to the Ten Forums.

Import-StartLayout does not work the way you are trying to use it. You cannot copy (export) the Start layout from a user profile to be imported to another profile with it.

The Import-StartLayout only works with Windows image files. You first export the preferred Start layout to a .bin file with Export-StartLayout cmdlet, then mount a Windows image (original or customized install.wim file), and finally insert the exported .bin file with Import-StartLayout cmdlet to the image file.

PowerShell Export-StartLayout cmdlet syntax:

Export-StartLayout -Path "D:\AnyName.bin"

PowerShell Import-StartLayout cmdlet syntax:

Import-StartLayout -LayoutPath "D:\AnyName.bin" -MountPath X:\YourWindowsImage

The MountPath is and can only be the path to your mounted install.wim Windows image file.

Hi all Not sure if this is the type of question Fan/cooling arrangement for these particular forums as it's more of a general hardware query but the community here has been very helpful in the past I've got a fairly old W Ultimate Q PC with a w GX Lite PSU and recently ordered an cheap VTX graphics card I've been thinking about doing it for some time but thought now is the perfect time to add more cooling to my PC to mitigate the extra noise from the card I've attached some photos of my case - I've got a standard mm fan at the back of the case and there is a vent which looks like it Fan/cooling arrangement would fit a fan at the front which has screw holes mm and mm apart but the vent itself is mm across see photo 'front vent' However since I got the PC about years ago the HDD bays have been attached to the bottom which would obscure a front case fan see photo 'bays' This photo also shows two spare bays below my two optical drives Fan/cooling arrangement so I think I should simply be able to move the HDD bay up to the two empty bays and create space for the air to be sucked into Fan/cooling arrangement the case I've also got a vent on the removable panel on the side of the case see photo - this funnel extends to over the stock CPU cooler I assume I can't fit a fan to this as the panel needs to be removed So what would you guys recommend as the best solution Moving the HDDs and adding the front vent fan would this be a mm or mm fan because I can't see mm fans on scan etc Getting a VGA cooler for the GPU fan never done this before though and not sure that will help cooling for the increased load on the PSU etc Something else I could do with the a new mobo cpu ram and the case is old and huge but I'm really not in the position to do this at the moment and hopefully anything I buy now will come in handy when I eventually do upgrade the rest Thanks in advance for any help or advice gratefully appreciated as ever Tim

A:Fan/cooling arrangement

You have a couple of options.

1. You could buy a new case with better air flow. Antec makes some nice cases that aren't too expensive.

2. You can install a 90mm fan in the front (90mm fans have 85mm mounting holes, I believe). If you do that, moving the drives would be a good idea. If those are 3.5" bays above, you won't need adapters to do it. If they're 5.25" bays, you'll need adapters to mount the drives.

3. An extra GPU fan isn't practical in your case. There's nowhere to put it.

4. You could consider an aftermarket heatsink for your CPU for better cooling. This is a good one:

Cooler Master: Hyper 212 EVO

There are always options, though it can be difficult to cool an older case. My best suggestion would be to see if a newer case with better ventilation is in your budget, and if your components would fit in it.

I've done quite a few searches on Google in addition to these forums on the topic of desktop icon arrangement.

Basically, I want Windows to auto arrange my icons on the right side of my screen by default rather than the left. I want to avoid using a 3rd party program, because those usually are just "trial" versions and keep annoying me to buy the whole program.

I always keep my taskbar along the left side of my screen. With Vista, I kept it wide enough to arrange my program icons in rows of 3, so I could fit all that I commonly use and see them all at once. With W7, I can't get them other than one single row; then you have to use the bar at the bottom to see the rest that don't fit. Can I do it my old way with W7?

Hey guys...I am currently trying to organize my music. I have however encountered a slight (yet to myself major) issue. It appears as though each folder has their own settings for what information will be displayed (album artist/ contributing artists/title/name/track#/etc...). Is there any way to make it so that all my folders containing music only display "Name - Track # - Artist - Contributing Artist - Album"??? Organizing my music is tedious enough, I really don't need this slowing me down (such a hassle to fix each artist/album folder to have that information :S)

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hi. I'm not really sure if this is the right forum for this. :$ If it isn't, I apologize.

Anyway, I've been having a problem that started quite a while ago. It isn't a major one and the truth is that I can deal with it if I have to, but I find it somewhat irritating and I was hoping someone might actually have a solution for it.

When I click on the Open tab for any media player or image viewer, the files/folders appear arranged alphabetically from Z to A. I remember that it didn't use to be like that, and I found the correct A to Z arrangement much easier to deal with. Might anyone have any idea how to tweak things to fix it?

Thanks so much.

Hopefully help can be found here. I'll try to make this brief. Bought 9 disk German audio set. Ripped to PC. Each disk has 10 to 12 lesions numbered 1 through 10. Problem. When added to WMP library, They are ordered by track number on each disk. By that I mean the first track on WMP is track 1 disc 1, but then it goes to Track 1 disk 2, track 1 disk 3. So the first track is number 1 on 1, but then the next lesion (track) is 14.. which is track 1 on disk 2. Can I have it arranged so it goes disk 1 tracks 1-14 , then disc 2.. 1-14, disc 3 .. 1-14 etc.. etc. HELP!!! The other problem is that they are arranging the same way on my Zune.

Here's something a bit baffling.

I've a ******** of images in a folder and they're arranged in order of modification, from oldest to newest. Right, when clicking on an image and opening it in the Windows picture viewer, when I go to scroll through the images they seem to have been placed in alphabetical order despite the folder not being set for this. I'd like to get them back to being viewed in order of 'last modified' and simply setting the files to be shown in this way isn't doing the trick.

Any ideas?

If you are in detailed view, you can click where it says "Date Modified" and it will sort the images by the date modified.

Hi. I was wondering if there was a way to customize icon arrangement for individual folders. As it stands right now, when I choose my viewing options for folder icons, they are arranged according to how I want them, but for all folders.

For another folder, I may wish to have icons arranged by type or by name. But the settings for one folder appear to be the settings for all folders.

I was wondering if anyone had a solution to this tile arrangement problem I've been having in Metro. Basically, when I try to position a tile below another tile, or beside, above, etc., it auto snaps back to a position I don't want, or one that takes up more screen real estate for no friggin' reason I can fathom. Here's a screenshot showing what I'm talking about:

If I try to move the Malware Bytes icon below Speccy, it will put the Speccy icon where Malware Bytes used to be. It will not allow me to put it below Speccy or arrange the icons in a more concise grid. This is really annoying when working with multiple tiles and tile groups. Does anyone know how to fix this behaviour? Would greatly appreciate any advice!

Yeah that is annoying. I wish we could turn off snap to grid or whatever it's called. It seems to work better if there is an even amount of tiles per section.

Hi Metamence,

As far as I know, the order of username presentation on the Welcome Screen cannot be configured. There's no standard option available to adjust this (and I'm aware of no 3rd party software that changes this particular aspect of the Welcome Screen - many other, but not this one). I haven't been able to determine how it even establishes the order it does use. I went through the entire registry looking and searched 30 pages in Bing and Google and found no solutions.

Sorry, but it does not appear that what you want to do is possible in Vista (or in Windows 7 or XP either to my knowledge). I wish I had better news, but that seems to be the way it is.

I never noticed before but my pc desktop is crap, especially the cables and wiring, can this interfere with my computer or am i just being paranoid?

A:Bad cable and wire arrangement interfer with pc performance?

Definitely paranoid

If the computer is working then the cabling is not causing a problem. Just check to make sure everything is firmly seated.

On my Taskbar I have currently approx. 20 icons pinned.

When I want to re-arrange them (=change the sequence) then this is sometimes but not always possible.

Furthermore the sequence is NOT remembered. When I logoff and re-login the order is changed again.

How can I really re-arrange icons in my favorite order?

How can I tell Wint to rememeber this order beyond the next reboot?

Windows 7 now calls the useful style "Folder path". Right-click in the header row, choose "More", and choose "Folder path".

I would like to find one person who thinks the current "Folder" style used in Win7 is useful. It's totally stupid. Or to put it in a way a Win 7 programmer apparently likes: stupid (It's totally).

I can't believe no one provided an answer to your question in nine months. This problem was killing me, so after an hour of searches without finding the answer, and then finding the answer by myself, I thought I'd add this for others who find this through a google search.

See image

all 3 monitors are the same physical size (24''), but the middle one is a 4k monitor with DPI scaling on.

So far everything is working MOSTLY correct (ok like 60% correct), except when moving the mouse between monitors, windows 8 still assumes the middle one is twice as large, so I can only move the mouse between screens if I move it to the bottom half of the middle monitor

Is there any way to fix?

Ok I'm using a Dell inspiron 15 series 7000 laptop w/ Win 8.1 Intel I5 and a 23" Hannspree external touch monitor. I use this system to run a single application that uses 5 open windows. I have arranged the open windows with four of them open on the external monitor and one on the laptop display. I want to "freeze" this window if the system goes to sleep I want it to awaken to this arrangement not stack all the windows on the laptop monitor, also when I close the laptop, I want to keep the same four windows open on the external and not have the window #5 jump over to the external monitor, and then when I open the laptop I want it to look like it did when I closed it, not having all the open windows jump back to the laptop monitor. Can I do this?

Windows 7 uses its own intelligence to arrange your windows.
For an example, when you drag a window to the top of the screen it automatically maximizes. But if your wanna master Windows 7 at your best, you need to disable this arrangement. Let's see how to go about it
Step 1: In the Start Search type regedit to edit the registry
Step 2: Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop
Step 3: Set WindowArrangementActive value to 0, and reboot
Now your windows will behave as in the earlier versions.

I have a Dell power supply here that I am reasonably sure is standard ATX except for one wire that is missing on the Dell. My standard ATX supply has all twenty pin slots occupied by a wire. The Dell has one wire missing, white.

I have learned that in Japanese wiring, their system seems to be that black, white and all shades of grey in between tend to be either negative or ground in a DC system.

What's the significance of the missing white wire on the Dell power supply?

So in this screenshot you can see my Start Menu, notice that some of this icons (Steam, Curse Client and Origin) have an arrow next to them? When you hover, or click, with the mouse the Task menu opens up.
What I want is to add an icon of Microsoft Office and make it so that the arrow is there too (just like Steam, Origin and Curse Client) and make it so that when I click or hover the Task menu will appear, and on the list will be MS Word, MS Excel, MS PowerPoint, etc
I would like to know if it's at all possible and if so how can I do it?

A:Menu Problem - Selected menu option staying on screen

when is the last time you updated your video driver?

This also could be some menu effects gone wrong. Windows has some effects it can do by default, but other programs can add their own.

as an experiment - try the following:
- right click on your desktop and pick properties
- click the appearance tab
- click the 'Effects' button
make a note if which options are selected.

- UN check everything.
- hit 'ok' on both windows and they will close.

then test your menus and see if that solves it. If so - then I would reccomend updating your video drivers.

I've noticed that Windows 7 doesn't seem to like the Menu bar and it hides it from users unless they hit *alt* which briefly brings it back. How do I lock this in place? I got to view and toolbars, but manu bar is not an option and there is no way to lock it there. please advise. (File Edit View Tools) menu

Hello Jordan,

You can use either ShellExView or ShellMenuView to make disabling that context menu item easy.

I have created and pinned some personal folders to the start menu. They now appear on the left hand side of the start menu, along with the other applications.

Here are my questions:

1) How can I set up those folders so that they would appear with the little arrow on the right that will allow me to see the content of those folders as a menu, instead of having to open them as Explorer windows?
I would like to do that instead of using the "pull up" option in the taskbar.

1a)How can I change the name of a folder pinned to the start menu without changing the name of the real folder?

2) Is it possible to create personal folders to insert on the right hand side pane of the start menu? (to appear under the system default folders called "pictures", "music" etc)

Thank you for any advice on this.

A:menu view of personal folders pinned to start menu

1.) You should be able to right click the folder and select "view as link" or "view as menu"

1a) Not sure if you can do that.

2) It is not possible to include personal folders on the right side of the start menu.

I don't know if this is a widespread problem, but I just noticed that I have duplicate context menu entries for "Files" and "Programs" that are reached by typing into the search box at the Start menu. See attached screenshot. This doesn't apply to Control Panel items, Videos, Documents, Music, etc.

Any solutions?

A:Duplicate Context menu entries in Start menu

A long standing issue (XP also) with the context menu when accessed from certain locations.

One menu is appearing for the target, one for the link.

If you right click the offending item - check properties - you will see that your viewing the link, not the actual file.

Wierd, huh?

If I recall, I could avoid the problem if there were no "customizations" in the context menu.

I also remember a connection to the shortcut arrow. With the arrow shown, no doubling.

I really don't remember why it does that. One of the two.

hi sivasandeep99,
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
If you have tried FN+F2 when boot?
Or holding down Shift and clicking restart?
If those steps did not work either,  You might need to contact Lenovo Technical Support and have the system shipped to Repair Facility for BIOS Reflash.

So I have the Classic Shell start menu replacement program (fantastic by the way), and it just occurred to me. Is it possible to have a menu on the right pane, instead of adding a scroll arrow on the bottom when there's too many items to fit on a screen, behave like the All Programs menu and automatically throw the other items into a second column? (If there's nothing you can tell me, that's fine, just thought I'd ask)

My Start button's context menu has double entries. It either happened when updating from Win8 to Win8.1 preview, or from Win8.1 preview to Win8.1 official release, though I'm pretty sure it was the former. Where does Windows contain the entries for this context menu so that I may prune duplicates and possibly reorder them to my liking?

I actually have no beef with the Win 8.1 Start menu, but the colors of the regular desktop environment are killing me. Namely, the weird, off-off white of the menus. The High-Contrast White option under Personalization gives me the right color for the menu backgrounds but everything else about the theme screams windows 3.1
Is there maybe a registry tweak that I can use to change this one little color? I've tried a few things but nothing so far has worked.

See attached pic to see what I'm talking about.
Any help would be greatly appreciated -- thanks in advance!!

We have a custom application which users are used to launching by right clicking on the start menu and selecting it from there.

We have made this customisation in both XP and Vista by adding an entry in:

However when I try to do this in Windows 7 nothing appears.

The only item that appears are the default windows items:
"Properties" and "Open Windows Explorer"

Any ideas if we can actually do this in windows 7 or is there another location in the registry this kind of thing is read from?

I've never tried this, so I don't have back-up on this.

I doubt this could have been changed in Windows 7, since it is used for other options. I've added my own options, but when right-clicking files only. It is only an assumption, though.

I'll check on this.

Tell me if any of these here help. I can't find exactly what you're looking for.

The win 7 start menu download folder item on the right sorts by name. This is very annoying. I cannot find a download unless I know its name. If by date I just look up a recent download at top of list.

How do I change behavior so downloads in start menu (right column) sorts by date?

NB. I changed the folder properties in explorer so the download folder sorts by date. It does there no problem. But not in the start menu.

What a worthless feature to sort by name when it is downloads. I am checking for a registry work around, but it is a slow bushiness for me.

I think the only thing that will work here is a registry hack.

By default if you set the start menu properties to display "favorites" it does so by a menu. It does not give you a choice to display this as a link or a menu like it does for other folders.

Is there a way to fix this?

A:Display Favorites as a link not a menu in Start Menu

Drag it on to the start menu ( left hand pane) and pin it and it will open up in a new window when clicked.

Hello All,

When I click on the search button in the start menu of WinXp,
or when I use the search item in the context menu, it doesn't work.

Nothing happens and I have to wait about 30 seconds
before regaining control over the computer
(the start button remains in the dark state, and nothing reacts,
except the task manager)

Searching does work if I use the Search button in Windows Explorer.
It also works in safe mode.

Reinstalling the search assistant does not help.

I also checked my computer with adaware, spybot and some AV-programs,
but that doesn't help either.

Anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks and Have a Great Day,

I frequently do repetitive tasks (editing videos at the moment). I open videos\myvideos\editvideos, then do my editing. When I'm done with editing that video clip and want to do the next one, I have to go back and go through this menu drill again because Windows takes me back to the root menu every time.
Is there any way to keep it at my editvideos location so I can do the next operation without wasting time?
