Missing the 'General' 'Wireless Networks' 'Advanced' tabs in properties.

Q: Missing the 'General' 'Wireless Networks' 'Advanced' tabs in properties.

Hey, how are you?

So I'm trying to connect to the internet via wireless. I have this sheet that tells me step-by-step instructions on how to do this (connect to my work network). The problem is that when I right-click on 'Wireless Network Connection,' only the Networking and Sharing are the only options that show up. I need the 'General' 'Wireless Networks' 'Advanced' tabs to continue my set-up. Am I clicking on the wrong thing? This also happens with my 'Local Area Connection'.

Thanks for any help.

Preferred Solution: Missing the 'General' 'Wireless Networks' 'Advanced' tabs in properties.

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.)

A:Tabs Missing from Display Properties

Check this first: http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=922370

Have you installed the display drivers for your chip or installed card?

That is sometimes a factor.

The other is a policy setting, but this should not occur on a clean install.

If one exists, it would be found in one of the registry keys below:

User Key: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\
System]

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer

System Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\
System]

When I go to display properties, the Desktop & Screensaver tabs are missing. I currently have a blue background with all my normal icon's, everything else seems to be running normal. I am running XP Professional.

Thank's T.J.

OK....feel like a dumb a$# ... I got hit with virus/malaware. I was able to clean the harddrive usinBullgurd 8.0, but after clean-up I find that my display properties is missing the Walpaper and screen saver tabs.

How can I restore these?

A:Missing Display Properties Tabs

The first thing is to be sure that you're clean. I'd suggest a couple of these free, online scanners to verify that you're clean: (Be advised that some of these scanners will pickup things in "quarantine" from other anti-virus programs - so review the results carefully)http://housecall.trendmicro.comhttp://www.pandasecurity.com/homeusers/solutions/activescan/http://www.kaspersky.com/virusscanner Scan Only - no removalhttp://www.bitdefender.com/scan8/ie.htmlhttp://support.f-secure.com/enu/home/ols.shtmlhttp://us.mcafee.com/root/mfs/default.asphttp://onlinescan.avast.com/http://ca.com/us/securityadvisor/virusinfo/scan.aspxhttp://www.eset.com/onlinescan/ If you're not clean, then a fix is unlikely to help you out - and if you're not clean, I'd suggest posting in the Am I Infected forum for assistance from the experts (here's the link: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/103/am-i-infected-what-do-i-do/ )Once that's done, post back and we'll work on fixing the display properties.

Hi fellas,

I am experiencing a big problem. As the title of the topic suggests, tabs in Display Properties are missing. Well, I have searched through Google a lot for this, and none of the advices worked. The advices generally point to a registry hack, but it does not work for me.

Well to describe the problem better, this thing arised after a Spyware Infection wallpaper came to my computer. I fixed everything related to it (at least I think so), but this sticked on me. If I run in safe mode, I can see all tabs properly. Also in normal mode, I can only see the themes tab, (with Windows Classic, XP, current theme, etc. as options) if I change to another theme and say apply, I can see the tabs (not exactly as they should be) until I press OK to close that window.

Does anybody have any suggestions?

I have the same problem as the one described here:

(Display Properties Tabs Missing and OpenGL Not Supported)

However, I did not update Windows. My NVIDIA MX 440

following:

Installed Slackware Linux and LILO (Linux Loader)
Set Linux partition to boot partition (hid Windows partition)
Was not able to load either OS and forced to delete Linux
using Windows XP CD
Installed new Windows XP in other partition
Installed Partition Magic on that partition and fixed
everything (unhid original partition)

The graphics card emerged with this problem. I reinstalled all drivers. How do I
resolve this?

I noticed that i'm missing nearly all tabs on properties, only general and summary tabs are visible. So at least security and compatibility tabs are missing and i need them. I noticed that when i go to Local security policy settings on Control panel>Administrative tools i get this error: and i think these problems are connected. So i need to fix that error and get the properties window working right again. Im administrator and running XP pro SP2.
 

A:Local security policy error and missing tabs on properties

You can restore missing tabs on properties go to Start>Run, type regedit. In the Registry Editor go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System
you should have a DWORD key "NoDispSettingsPage" change the value to "0".
If you don't see "NoDispSettingsPage" create the key give it a value of "1" then go back and change the value to "0".

**ALWAYS BACKUP YOUR REGISTRY BEFORE MAKING ANY CHANGES**

If you're not comfortable messing with the registry wait for someone else with another suggestion. Good Luck!!!

Hello and thank you in advance for your help. I am a first time user and spent most of the night reading posting on this site. I was very helpful.

Enough said, I just ran into a problem with my display properties. It occurred after a virus attacked my computer and reset the desktop to a false "blue screen of death". I was able to remove it Ad-Aware SE, but once i was working with the computer again, I found that the tabs under "display properties" were missing. They included "Themes", "Desktop" and "Appearances". I already tried reinstalling XP and carefully reinstalling the ATI drivers, but i still only see the "screen saver" and "settings" tabs.

Thanks again!

Running Win XP Pro on a AMD Athlon XP 2800+ with 512MB of DDR 2700 RAM.

When I right-click on the desktop to make any changes (like wallpaper, or screensaver) all I get is the Display Properties box with no tabs.

The sheet displayed is Themes. The selected theme is Windows XP.

If I change the theme and click Apply, the tabs all appear. But if I close & re-open the Display Properties, I'm back to Themes with no tabs.

There is a similar post here already, but no one has posted any solutions.

The wireless network properties box is missing. I have a Satellite pro 4600 with Linksys card for wireless and every thing worked once before. I replaced the hard drive with a new one and rebuilt the system. After installing the Cisco PEAP supplicant software to be able to logon at the college the box is now missing. I've tracked the problem to the PEAP software overwriting files on Win2000 sp4.
Or so the masters at M/S claim. Their advice was to reinstall Sp4. This didn't work. All of the information I have for configuring wireless cards for Win2000 show this box and it was there the firt time I set up the system. I have reformatted the hard drive twice then Installed Win2000 pro and the Sp3 and Sp4 using two different Install cds. I did not install the PEAP supplicant and still no box.

Thanks Rezehk

I have beat my head against a wall with this problem for three days now and I'm sincerely hoping someone here has run into it before and knows how to fix it.

In display properties there are absolutely no tabs.

The computer has XP with a Nvidia geforce4 mx 440 vid card.

-I have installed the newest driver and an older one, neither fix it.
-The tabs do appear in safe mode
-I have reinstalled SP1a
-I removed all spyware
-I have scanned for viruses
-I have disabled abolutely everything on startup
-I did find one mskb article that referrer to a similar problem after upgrading from 98 to xp but this came with xp and the article didn't have all the tabs missing.

Any ideas?

hello,
for quite some time the tabs in the display properties menu have been missing. All I can see when I open it are the theme options and the preview. I can't remember changing anything recently that could have influenced this. Any ideas?
Thanks a lot!

Anyone know of a list of useful properties window extensions?

I have added a mediainfo tab and a file hashing tab and I quite like the idea of having useful apps right there.

When I right click on the screen and select "Properties" I only get the theme option.
All my tabs have disappeared. I went to Kellys Corner and downloaded the reg file to display all tabs, but still nothing.
I can't change my screen saver or background or any properties.

Any ideas on how to get the tabs back?

Are your graphic card drivers conflicting? Check under my computer hardware and look for your yellow exclamation marks.try to do a repair with sfc/scannow and have your XP disc ready since it will need to copy those files from the disc. Here is an excellent tutorial on that subject.

Hey, this has been bugging me for a while, wonder if anyone knows how to fix it....or if its even possible?

If i'm browsing the web and shift+click on a link or right click and select open in new tab, it will open in a new tab, but STAY ON the current tab.

However, If i select some text or a picture or whatever to use an accelerator on...it will also open it in a new tab, but AUTO switch to the newly opened tab. Is there anyway to change it so, the accelerator will open in the new tab, but I will stay on the current tab?

I've looked through the IE options, and can't find a way to do it. maybe something in WINDOWS REGISTRY could be changed?

Not sure if it's possible..think it's by design but you could have a look in the tab settings:

I have Toshiba laptop and Win 7. It is brand new laptop and original windows. I tried to install AWUS036H and it was successful but unfortunately adapter doesn't detect any networks. It happened with my old laptop with Win 7(Acer) and I had to reinstall windows fresh and it worked. But I wouldn't like to do it again here. As you may see on picture internal adapter has X in corner and it is working but RTL8187 doesn't, it just says Enabled and nothing happens. No networks detecting. In device manager everything is fine, no yellow icons. Also it is not detected by my ipconfig/all command. The same thing happens in safe mode

Adapter is not broken, it is working on linux. This is image from win 8.1 but it happens on my Win 7

A:WiFi adapter finds no wireless networks. ends up with No networks

What driver is currently installed?

Try this

Download the latest ar956x driver from here:
https://www.atheros.cz/atheros-wirel...et=83&system=5

Version: 10.0.0.297
Release: 2014-07-22 [July '14]
OS: Windows 7 32/64bit
Status: WHQL
File: win7-10.0.0.297-whql.zip (2585 KB)

Unzip the package and note the location
Uninstall the driver from the device in Dev mgr, remove software if presented (checkbox or prompt)
then update the driver from within Dev mgr using the unzipped inf file

Some reports on the Qualcom board indicate that you might have success with an earlier version 10.0.0.263, but I only see 10.0.0.255 then 10.0.0.270 on the site I linked.

Try the newest first , then the 255 (270 was the one the poster on Qualcom complained about)

Maybe the Toshiba site has a version that works. My method is to install the base or original driver from the PC OEM support page and work up if the peripheral board driver doesn't help solve the issue.


Please fill in your SevenForums specs so members can be more help - All I know is that you have a Toshiba laptop with Win7 on it.

Please don't waste your time typing the information in a post - place it in your system specs - then any time you create a thread, people can look at your machine specs in the lower left hand corner of any post.

Specific model information is important, there are usually many Satelltite models.

See the Easy specs link in my signature for a tool that makes it really easy.

Does anyone know of a way to get the file/folder properties page from a cmd prompt as though you have just gone and right-clicked the file/folder in the gui?

The reason I ask is because I may have a user logged in and need to look at the file/folder properties (specifically the ntfs permissions) and because they are logged in as a user account and have no access to the folder they cannot even see the security tab of the properties box.

So I need a way from the command prompt to open the properties box of a file/folder (as I have done a runas to get an admin prompt inside their user gui session). Looking at security settings in a cmd program may also be of some interest if anyone knows that either...

well, i dont believe that the dial changing would change that. However we may need to work back a bit.

1. Are you on an administrator account. Or, when was the last time you recall going into that and seeing more options other than the General Tab.

2. When your ISP had been unchecked was another one checked?

In Windows 7, it use to be under "Manage wireless networks", but I can't seem to find it in Win8.

You have the 32-bit version of Windows XP, so it's not going to recognize and use more than 3.0 - 3.25 GB of RAM. More than 2.0 GB of RAM is overkill anyway with Windows XP.

Set virtual memory to "System managed size". There's no need to manually set it.

In short, the problem I'm having is that when I open the Folder Options control panel, the only tabs that appear are File Types and Offline Files. I would like to change some other folder settings that normally appear under the General and View tabs, but they're not there!

Relevant Info:
Windows XP SP2 (completely updated)
No spyware or viruses
Logged in as an administrator
Tried safe mode, same results
Have restarted multiple times

The only other possibly important issue is that I recently replaced a stick of bad RAM in this machine that was causing flakiness. The machine is very stable now, but could this have affected Windows? I doubt it, but am pretty much out of ideas for what might be causing this.

Any help would be much appreciated. Also if anyone needs more info, I'm happy to provide it.

Thanks, Pete

Hi
I have two networks showing. I use the one called Ghi
The second one I think is a leftover from when I had this computer set to share printing and files with another computer on my home network.
Is it safe to delete the second one if my assumption is true that it is a leftover?

A:My Wireless And Wired Networks Only Show Up As "Unidentified/Local Only" Networks

First off, the capitalization of every word is a little annoying just fyi.

Second, try reinstalling drivers for your network card, and make sure your computer is updated. What are you using to monitor the WiFi card? The vista program or a third party program?

Hey to TSG!!

I need help in this one. My Bluetooth used to capture others (with no password) wireless networks but if I do extensive use on it, it will not work. For one wireless network, it gets connected but nothing appears and for another, it doesnt get connected at all though it used to. They all are in low signal but they used to work fine!

I dont know what to do right now. Is my bluetooth screwed up? I used to download large files (more than 500 mb) before but now it doesnt get connected.

Please tell me what to do firstly!

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Drive\ShellEx\PropertySheetHandlers\{5F5295E0-429F-1069-A2E2-08002B30309D}
 
If the above key does not exist, please perform the steps below to add the key:
 
1.     Click the "Start" button, type "regedit" (without quotation marks) in the "Search" bar, right click on the "regedit.exe" found in the list and then click "Run as administrator".
2.     Navigate to the following key:
 
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Drive\ShellEx\PropertySheetHandlers
 
3.     Right click the PropertySheetHandlers entry on the left pane, choose "Export", select "Desktop" in the "Save in" box and type "backup" (without quotation marks) in "File Name". Click "Save".

A:New Wireless Card, Unable to view Wireless Networks

I came up with a semi solution and a semi diagnosis for this problem. I put BOTH cards in at once putting an antenna on each. I noticed that when I booted into windows that the wireless light showed it was still disabled and in fact it was disabled. I used the FN+F2 key to enable wireless and *POOF* both cards work in vista now.

So my guess is there was sort of hardware check that was disabling power to my wireless or something.

My internet has been working fine until a few minutes ago, when my connection just vanished.
I went to try and reconnect but my Belkin N Wireless USB adapter could not find any wireless networks to connect to.
While searching for a connection, the light starts blinking like it is searching, but then it says that it can't find any. Also, when I plug in the adapter, a popup comes up saying that there are wireless networks nearby, but when I click it there are still none.

I've tried reinstalling drivers but still nothing. I'm not sure what else to try because I'm afraid I might mess something up even more.
If you need any more information just ask.
Please help me to fix this problem. Thanks.

I'm running a Toshiba Satellite L300 with Windows Vista Home Premium x64 and a T6400 processor. I haven't had any connection problems untill now. The problem I'm having now is Windows cannot find any wireless networks. I can connect through a Ethernet cable but not wirelessly. Another thing that bothers me is that I can't enable the network connection in the network connections folder. I don't know why this is happening suddenly as I haven't made any changes involving my network settings at all. I've looked it up on the internet but couldn't find anything that would help me. One solution that looked promising was: no wireless networks were found in range error

That didn't work though because my "event log" service was already set to Automatic so my case must be different. All help is appreciated and thanks a lot.

Hi shayan8891 No, it's not possible for someone to add forcibly add your computer to a wireless network if he doesn't control your computer.

When you select Ctrl/Alt/Delete you get a screen of the active tasks on the computer. There used to be tabs at the top. All I display now it just the box with Tools Message Help with the tasks listed below and the option to end task. (oops, couldn't figure out how to add the screen print

I have rebooted and it doesn't change. Do you think I have lost a ddl file? Sure would like to have those tabs back so I can work with this. On the start bar when this is running, all it shows is a green monitor/green square and I have to right click/delete to end it.

PS what does this mean on your submit page?

I am running outlook express on 2 pcs. Both are the same version
On both PCs, the option for "send" is set to "html" and under format Rich Text is ticked and of course under view edit source is checked.
When creating a new message, on PC1, the new msg window has 3 tabs (edit source preview) at the bottom of the window. On PC2, the 3 tabs won't appear.


I have stumped the experts at three forums. Thought I would let you take a stab at the unusual problem.

This morning I noticed all my tabs were gone in Firefox but two. What happened to them and is there a way to get them back? I did nothing out of the ordinary last night when I shut down. They always are there the next morning except today.

I don't know what I did but the settings and advanced tabs on my display properties are missing. The only ones there are background, screensaver and appearance. Is there a way to get those back and if so, what should I do?
I'm using win98 and ie6. Thank you.
 

A:missing tabs

It's been so long since I've used Win9X that I'm of no use for specifics. My guess is you probably reverted back to the Generic VGA drivers from Microsoft. In any event reinstalling your video card drivers should fix the problem.

Hello,

Can someone please help !!!!
For some reason the summary tab on all my media files (mp3's mpegs avis etc) has disappeared.

(ie right click properties- the general tab appears but not the summary tab. This is where you enter the file details like genre, artist etc).

As well, when the files are viewed in Win explorer none of the details except he file name appear.

All the exif data however, is still contained in the mp3's etc as I can still view/edit using third party software like winamp or itunes.

Any ideas on how to turn the summay tab back on please

Hi,
I have recently noticed that I no longer have the compatibility tab in file properties, and as a result, many programs no longer work.
I have run the system file checker (sfc /scannow) and various virus/spyware scanners, but nothing seems to work.
I have XP Home SP2.

Can you help? :shy:

Thanks

I know that this topic is a few years old, however, this is where I got redirected when looking for help on this exact problem.
What my problem is exactly is that I do not have compatibility tabs, however when I try to run "hcp://system/compatctr/compatmode.htm", nothing opens. I have seen this code in a few places before to solve this problem, but no matter what (hand-typing or copy-and-paste) nothing will run afterwards.

Thank you if anyone can help me.

Hey,

When I go to display properties the tabs that are normally found at the top (themes, desktop, screen saver, etc) have all disappeared. I think that this started after I loaded the latest drivers for my NVIDIA graphics cards. I read elsewhere that a Trojan could cause it but have run my MacAfee Virus scanner and found nothing. Please help me...

By the way i am running Windows XP SP1 and I have a GeForce Fx 5200 if this helps.

have been using AMD Drivers 13.4, recently tried the new 13.8 Beta drivers, but Catalyst only showed tabs for CPU settings, nothing for Graphics Cards, have tried a clean install and a overwrite of the software, but still comes up the same, have finally got back to using the 13.4 Drivers but only after a lot of hassle.

Has anyone else had this problem, and did they remedy it.

Thanks

A:Missing tabs in Catalyst

This is exactly the reason why I don't use beta GPU beta drivers.

I've not heard of any issues like you described. When you installed the beta driver, did you uninstall the old driver first. I know with AMD, for what ever reason, that seems to be the preferred and recommended method. Did you download the beta driver directly from AMD?

A:Missing Tab in System Properties

Here is a solution that I found.


System Restore Group Policy restrictions

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

SYMPTOM
System Restore tab may be missing in My Computer Properties. Also, when you run System

Restore (rstrui.exe), you receive this message:
"System Restore has been turned off by group policy. To turn on System Restore, contact your

domain Administrator."

-or-

System Restore Properties page says disabled by Group Policy

RESOLUTION
Click Start, Run and type REGEDIT and press Enter

Navigate to the following key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows NT\SystemRestore

In the right-pane:

Delete the value DisableConfig

Delete the value DisableSR

For Windows XP Professional, you can accomplish the above using Group Policy Editor as well.

Click Start, Run and type GPEDIT.MSC

Navigate to this path:

=> Computer Configuration

==> Administrative Templates

===> System

====> System Restore

Double-click Turn off System Restore to Not Configured

Double-click Turn off Configuration to Not Configured

More Information
Turn off System Restore corresponds to DisableSR registry value. With this Policy is turned ON,

the System Restore tab may be missing in My Computer Properties. Also, when you run System

Restore (rstrui.exe), you receive this message:

System Restore has been turned off by group policy. To turn on System Restore, contact your

domain Administrator.

Turn off Configuration corresponds to DisableConfig registry value. With this Policy turned ON, the

System Restore tab will remain displayed but the user cannot configure the SR options. It reads

disabled by Group Policy




"Remote" tab missing in My Computer properties

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

When you right-click My Computer icon in the Desktop and choose Properties, the Remote tab

may be missing. As a result, you may be unable to configure the Remote Assistance / Remote

Desktop settings. To restore the tab, follow these steps:

Click Start, Run and type this command:

regsvr32 %systemroot%\system32\remotepg.dll

If you receive an error stating that the module could not be found, or stating no registration

helper is registered for this file type (which indicates a corrupt DLL), extracting a new copy from

XP CD should help. Make sure that you extract the updated copy of the DLL file if you have

applied the XP Service Pack in your system. Register the DLL again.

(Extract the DLL from a Slipstreamed XP CD, or copy the remotepg.dll from ServicePackFiles\i386

folder to Windows\System32 folder)

To extract the DLL from Windows XP CD, type this in Command Prompt

EXPAND X:\I386\REMOTEPG.DL_ -R C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32

Where X:\ is your CD-ROM drive letter. The above command assumes Windows is installed in C:\

drive. If not, change the drive letter / Path accordingly.

Example

EXPAND H:\I386\REMOTEPG.DL_ -R G:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32


It's kinda' long but it work.

When restarting my PC my monitor wouldn't always start up again. I finally got fed up, took it in to a shop, video card was defective. I had it replaced with a Celestica Radeon 9200. They called me from the shop, said the computer was ready, but that the display was all messed up. I didn't think it'd be that big of a deal to fix, so I took it home. The resolution options are available as a tray icon so that was no problem. But, when I go into display properties, I have no tabs - no desktop, screensaver, bappearance, or settings - all I have is themes. Is this because my old video card messed up Windows (XP Pro)? Everything else seems to be running properly. No viruses, adware or spyware. Is there a registry edit to get these tabs back?

go to http://www.tomcoyote.org/hjt/ , and download 'Hijack This!'.
Unzip, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
Press that, save the log somewhere, and please copy & paste its contents to the forum.

It will possibly show issues deserving our attention, but most of what it lists will be harmless or even required, so do NOT fix anything yet.
Someone here will be happy to help you analyze the results.
