Apps slow to run from taskbar, otherwise OK

Q: Apps slow to run from taskbar, otherwise OK

Any app that is pinned to the taskbar takes a few seconds (varies from around 2 to 5), before they respond, if I run the same app from a shortcut on the desktop, or the start menu they respond instantly.

Windows file explorer is a good example, run it from the taskbar and it can take up to 10 secs to open, but open it from the start menu or a desktop short cut and it will open instantly.

The only one I've noticed to open instantly from the taskbar is 'Store'.

This is a fresh installation of Win 8.1 with the spring update, plus all other updates, on a SSD. Does this happen with anyone else?

Preferred Solution: Apps slow to run from taskbar, otherwise OK

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: Apps slow to run from taskbar, otherwise OK

Found it to be down to setting in 'Ultramon' that I use, disabled smart taskbar and no longer a problem.

I have a nearly fresh install of Win7 32 bit on a pretty modern machine. It has been intermittently laggy since I installed Win7 about three weeks ago.

Here is a list of symptoms:
1) Apps are slow to open
2) Double clicks aren't registered until 5-10 seconds later
3) Typing is slow on most apps, but only intermittently
4) Most Net browsing is very slow - not slow to load, but slow to react and slow to open new tabs & windows

System specs: quad core Pentium, NForce 750 mobo, Nvidia G9500GT card with 1GB, 4GB 800mhz RAM, cable internet and Buffalo router.

Any thoughts on where to start?

I don't think it's a system issue. Also, the Win7 install is super fresh. Further, it's the second install on the same machine (I thought I could fix the same issue with a fresh install). My experience index is 4.6 limited by the graphics card.

A:Slow to open apps, all Net apps slow, slow to type... laggy everything

OK so I isolated the following:

- Antivirus: I am running Panda Cloud, which is the same AV as on the PC upstairs
- RAM: checks out fine, 4 GB, same amount runs fine on the PC upstairs
- Vidcard: system performance seems OK if I do not switch between programs. That is, if I stay in one program for a while, the systems runs at an acceptable speed.
- Web browser: system lag is identical in Chrome, IE, and Firefox.

Hi,

got a problem when trying to minimize apps.

Let's say I'm runing notepad++ (or whatever), when I click on the minimize button I'd expect the icon for notepad++ to appear in the taskbar ... it doesn't.

to 'get back' to the app I have to use alt-tab.

anyone know how I can get apps to minimize to the taskbar?

Hi @cxztiel

My guess is blue is your accent color and the yellow is something loading in Steam and may have gotten hung up. A guess though.

Computer woken up from sleep, go to task bar to open an app, get flashes of app when selecting app's icon on taskbar, but app doesn't open. However, some apps open and some apps don't. Those that do open, when left clicked on for a menu item, the app closes. Although an app opens it is not functional.

Hey,

For some reason, I can't get any of the Office 2010 programs to pin to the taskbar on Windows 7 Home Premium. When the program is running, the jumplist has no button to pin the program. If I go into the Start Menu and hit Pin to Taskbar from there, it gives me a working shortcut on the taskbar, but the program creates a new taskbar button when it launches, completely ignoring the one that's already there.

Even stranger, I don't have this problem on my other computer running Win 7 Pro.

Any thoughts or suggestions?

OK, here goes my first post.
I just restored a HP dv5 laptop to factory original. In setting it up the way I want, I noticed that Windows Media Player was pinned to the task bar. I unpinned it but it returns when the computer is restarted.
I looked in the start folder, found it empty. Checked the Run & Run Once sections of the registry and found nothing related to the media player. I am at the limit of my ability at this point. So I ask my question finally.
How do I prevent Windows Media Player from being repeatedly pinned to the task Bar?

I have a SAN administration tool I use that launches a Java app. The desktop shortcut that runs it looks like this:

C:\Windows\System32\javaws.exe "C:\Users\gm.KTC\AppData\LocalLow\Sun\Java\Deployment\cache\6.0\14\391de28e-4bf1d62f"

When I pin this shortcut to the taskbar and launch it, I get a second instance of the icon in the taskbar (shown as running), and the pinned icon never changes to a "running" icon. If I launch another instance of the app (Shift-Click the non-running pinned icon) it will pair up both running instances and show me both when I hover over the running icon, so that part works, but it appears that the mechanism that links a running app to the taskbar gets confused by the shortcut.

Is there a awy to make it so Windows 8.1 does not show any of the Modern Apps in the taskbar?

For instance, I like to keep NotePad8, Weather and some others running, but I don't want them taking up Taskbar realestate since (as far as I'm aware at least), those Modern apps will remain open until I close them for good by moving to the upper left part of the screen.

So, if anyone knows of any methods I could try to do this, I would be all ears! I suspect there's probably something I could do in the registry, and if there is, maybe someone could attach a .reg file for me.

I'm also attaching a screencap of what I'm talking about.

Hi All

I am experiencing a weird issue on an XP machine I use for work.

Despite having the windows taskbar 'locked', all my apps open up with their minimise/maximise/close buttons hidden behind this taskbar.

I am one of those who choose to locate the taskbar at the top of the screen rather than on the bottom.

So, if I want to move an app, or resize the window - quite simply, I can't do this without first moving the system taskbar to the left or right position - which then gives me access to the top bar of any running application. I can then access and thus move/adjust the application position.

Does anyone know why I might be experiencing this weird behavior and if so, how I reset it back to default please?

I have tried turning the machine off and restarting - to no avail.

Many thanks all.

I like the Windows 7 task bar the way it is. I want to have only large icons instead of a long tail of icons and text. So I don't need to unmix all the icons. But I run both Firefox and Aurora. For those who don't know, Aurora is the night build of the same Firefox. Windows, somehow detects them as the same thing, which they're not, and stacks the icons. Now I use the two browsers for different purposes and I would like to tell Windows 7 task bar: Aurora is something different, like Opera or Chrome and I would like it displayed as such. Could you help?

I just noticed something. I hardly ever use Store Apps but I had cause to look at a couple just now.
The Task Bar, which I'd noticed previously when using Store Apps would hide itself after a moment, and could be recalled with a mouse movement downwards, is now on screen permanently.

is that normal? I like it like this! The title bar does vanish and reappear as expected.

EDIT: I just did a little reading and see it's not just me. I also have the desktop 'drop shadow icon text' that just won't go away even after registry hacks.
I do hope Windows 9 doesn't inherit any of this kind of thing!

A:Taskbar remains on screen even in Store Apps.

Hello Mark,

Since the August 12th 2014 Windows Updates, the taskbar will on some PCs always show on the Start, apps, and PC settings screens if you do not have the taskbar set to auto-hide and you open the Start screen by pressing the Start button on the taskbar while on your desktop. If you multiple screens, then this doesn't apply.

If you do not have the taskbar set to auto-hide or you open the Start screen by pressing the Windows key, you will not see the taskbar on the Start, apps, and PC settings screens unless you open the taskbar using step 5 below.

Hi everyone,
I have just started using one of Lenovo's hybrids, the Yoga 2 11, after using for a while a previous model (IdeaPad Yoga 11s).
Windows 8.1 on both.
Now, my new Lenovo surprised me with an interestingly annoying feature - it won't allow me to pin Windows apps to the taskbar. I've tried from the Start Apps menu and from everywhere. Only, I didn't try clicking on the app icon when it is running and shown on the taskbar - simply because it won't: there's no way to access the taskbar while an app is open unless returning to the desktop.
I'm quite a beginner but I don't understand why there are such differences when the operating system is the very same. All of this is referred to while in Laptop mode so I can't even see how Lenovo could have an influence on it.

If anyone out there ever had such an issue...

A:Lenovo hybrid - apps won't be shown/pinned on taskbar

Hello Armonia, and welcome to Eight Forums.

The modern apps are full screen in Windows 8.1, and will cover the taskbar. You can use step 3 or 5 to open the taskbar while you have a modern app open to see it.

Taskbar - Open in Windows 8.1

Resetting and clearing all pinned items on the taskbar may be able to help with not being able to "Pin to taskbar" if it's corrupted.

It's been couple of days since I upgraded my system to Windows 10 from Windows 7. Everything is working fine except this nasty error. If I pin apps to taskbar or run apps , the app icons on the taskbar are shown as white square. And I am seeing the same thing on Apps & Feature settings list. The icons are there but as the backgrounds are shown as grey-white chequered pattern (for the transparency ), it looks like white squares. Rebuilt the icon cache but to no avail. And on the start menu everything looks fine.

While using Internet Explorer in desktop mode I can browse for a few seconds and then the program disappears. It may reappear in a few minutes or sometime not at all. It is most annoying. Also my taskbar has disappeared and won't pop up when I put the cursor at the bottom of the screen. The computer did a windows update a few weeks ago and the problem seems to have started since the update.

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.

Greetings,

Is there anyway to remove the unpin/pin context menus - while retaining the items currently on there. It can be a pain when I have folder shortcuts already setup but I accidentally unpin them when trying to close an unrelated app. In other words - I have the taskbar the way I like it and want to prevent further changes (like how rocketdock can lock icons and settings).

Is there a way to accomplish this in W7?

If it is not too long ago, and if you do remember the date, do a system restore.
Pick a date BEFORE you did the gpedit as your restore point.

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.

Ok, here's the situation:

I usually just have my Desktop as my only Toolbar. That is, whatever is on the desktop shows up on the Taskbar (without title or text). Of course, this is easy enough to do, but try removing the following from the Desktop Toolbar:
- Internet Explorer
- My Computer
- My Network Places
- My Documents

Most of you will say, "Too easy, just go to Display Properties -> Desktop tab -> Customize Desktop and UNcheck the Desktop icons" OR "Just right-click and delete them from the taskbar".

Looks great.... until I reboot or log-off/in. They magically reappear on the Taskbar (but not on the actual Desktop).

I imagine I may need to edit the registry. Any ideas???

Not all the time but at times my computer is slow when I ALT TAB Basically my computer specs are as follows OS Windows -bit Ultimate Processor E RAM - DDR GB Video NVIDIA GTS MB I'm wondering what exactly is the cause of this I do usually run at least applications Slow (ALT+TAB) switching when apps at once AOL AIM Yahoo Messenger Windows Live Messenger Skype GoogleTalk MySpaceIM at LEAST tabs in Google Chrome usually more and depending on the website I might switch to different browsers Oracle g and whatever FPS games I play Oracle g is loaded at startup The instant messaging applications are all in a folder I have a Slow when switching apps (ALT+TAB) script that loads every link I put in a folder I typically see these slowdowns when these programs are launching When I just glanced at the Resource Monitor my CPU was bouncing anywhere from to My RAM usage is roughly around I haven't seen it go past GB even though I have a -bit OS All of my applications are -bit which I don't know if that has anything to do with making use of all GB of my RAM or not I don't know how to monitor my Video card usage Having all that said what really is the culprit What aspect of my system is causing this slowdown If I turn on my computer let the OS sit for a couple of minutes THEN load my chat applications and my browser tabs then let my computer sit another - minutes it works just fine I don't mind the wait but it's just aggravating I do intend on upgrading in the next year or so too What affect would moving from DDR to DDR have as well Yes the easy solution to fix this would be modifying my startup and starting things one at a time but that's not the question here

A:Slow when switching apps (ALT+TAB)

It slows down because it can only process so many things at a given time. The culprit could be many. It is impossible to say.

A:32 bit apps slow under Windows 8 64 bit

Hello and welcome to the Window 8, and to the Eight Forums!

First problem I saw, your install of Windows 8 was an upgrade over Windows 7. This is an issue within itself, let alone the fact itunes is involved (not a big fan of itunes at all especially the poor metro/Zune ripoff that is itunes 11). Doing upgrade installs, regardless if you just installed the previous and immediately upgraded to a newer version, will have problems crop up sooner or later. Usually it's a tad later down the road where weird things happen for no reason.

If at all possible, before doing anything radical, can you try to do an isolated install of Windows 8 in a virtual machine, a separate PC, or even just making a partition on your hard drive and doing a clean install onto that; then install itunes as well as other troublesome programs to see if the problem surfaces? The last method I suggest doing as that will use your hardware straight up.

When opening an office app to work with it on the network, the app hangs. This mostly happens in Word and Excel. Even after starting the app, periodically the system will hang as if looking up something.

This issue happens when trying to open the menus at the top and after spell checking, just about all the time. Does anyone know what could be slowing it down.

I can move the mouse when it hangs, however the system will not highlight or select anything in the app.

Hi,

Working on a client's system. (Dell laptop, Celeron 400, 64 MB RAM, 4GB hd, running Windows ME).

Anyways, the problem I'm experiencing is that any office application (Word, Excel, etc.) takes a really, really long time to open (avg. 2min.). I've tried running a repair, re-install, I've cleaned up the HD (about 650 MB free), I've emptied out any temp folders. I'm out of ideas......

I went to your Malware thread with Chemist who cleared you of Malware reading the entire thread to familiarize myself with your issue.

Just two suggestions from me to try to assist you at this point in time.

Go to this link and do a PCPitstop scan by following the step by step. (Disregard the question about two Malware programs running as I know you have not)

Follow this link to see if any of the suggestions help at all. Worth a try, although much of it has been covered by Chemist

High, I have XP with Firefox, generally 5mbs loading but it is about 5 mins to reach internet. I have checked the startup and scanned everything. Have I got too much protection. As Windows does not support the Firewall, I use a free Private Firewall (which is generally the last to load) I have a paid for MBAM then a free Avast and free SAS. Spyshelter ,Ad Blocker, and Blur.
Should some of this be uninstalled?

In the last few days opening any app from an email message in Outlook has become painfully slow. The problem is particularly noticeable when I click an internet link in the body of an email, or double-click a Word or Excel attachment to open it directly from an email message.

Any suggestions on how I could try to islolate where the problem lies?

This apps work in high-perfomance mode, but still with low FPS. All latest updates are already installed, all drivers are updated, Windows is new, there are no any viruses and no another apps, which could use resources of laptop system.What should I do to increase FPS in 3D apps?And also I have another little question: in specifications of my laptop says, that Radeon R5 M430 installed here, but Radeon settings is written, that Radeon R5 M330 connected, how can It be?

If i have a game minimized and i open internet explorer , the computer is slow, i have 256mb ram so it shouldn't be that i don't have enough ram

I think i have to make the virtual memory size bigger?
 

A:Slow with 2 apps running, change?

Windows XP will run better with 512 - 1024 MB of RAM, especially if you're gaming.

Take a look at the startup list in the MSCONFIG startup tab and the number of programs that are set to "Automatic" in SERVICES. My guess is that both can be trimmed down.

The more RAM there is and the leaner the startup load is, the better that computer will run.

I was infected with Vundo and some other things so a friend used Combofix after all else failed on my computer. It got right of everything at least I think it did but now my computer applications are slow to open and I can't get updates to download for windows XP. What type of information should I post on here to see if anyone can help? Thank you

A:Used Combofix, apps are slow, no updates

Hi michigan22m,Let's try this:Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.alternate download link 1alternate download link 2Make sure you are connected to the Internet.Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:Update Malwarebytes' Anti-MalwareLaunch Malwarebytes' Anti-MalwareThen click Finish.MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan.If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself.Press the OK button to close that box and continue.If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.On the Scanner tab:Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.Then click on the Scan button.If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button. The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.Back at the main Scanner screen:Click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply and exit MBAM.Note:-- If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you may be asked to reboot your computer so it can proceed with the disinfection process. Regardless if prompted to restart the computer or not, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware. -- MBAM may make changes to your registry as part of its disinfection routine. If you're using other security programs that detect registry changes (like Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere with the fix or alert you after scanning with MBAM. Please disable such programs until disinfection is complete or permit them to allow the changes.

All of my sudden my computer decides to due a 180 and everything is just slow. I do not see any signs of a virus so I cant say what I am infected with( or not?) Hopefully, BC, you can tell me what I should do because My paintshop pro refuses to open IE8 slow if i can get it to open and applications are a pain to manage because everything takes a year and a day.

Press the OK button to close that box and continue.If you encounter any problems while downloading the definition updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.On the Scanner tab:Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.Then click on the Scan button.If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.Back at the main Scanner screen:Click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply. Be sure to post the complete log to include the top portion which shows MBAM's database version and your operating system.Exit MBAM when done.Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be asked to reboot your computer so MBAM can proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.

A:Pc Apps, Internet And Ie Graphics Slow Loading

Hi Paul,Welcome to Bleeping Computer. Sorry for the delay, this forum is really swamped right now.I don't see any signs of malware in your log. This does not mean for sure that your computer is clean, but it does mean that we need to keep other possibilities in mind.You have done some but not all the steps suggested in this pinned topic; I suggest you read through it and do the rest.After performing the checks suggested there, if your problem is not resolved, we can run a couple of scans to rule out rootkits and other nasties that may not show themselves in HijackThis.Let me know how it goes, and if you have any questions, just ask.Dave

Any new apps with the insider build-slow ring? What the latest build for the slow ring and can you download an iso image? When I tested it before, I always chose the fast ring, now I want to try the slow ring. Mainly to see if the monitor will stop flashing occasionally. Never did flash in windows 7 or any Linux OS.

A:Any new apps with the insider build-slow ring?

The latest Insider Preview iso files available for download are 14295 and 14332.

Hello there sorry to bother you but I have an issue with my new laptop I saved up for the longest time time apps boot and freezing? Slow and until recently afforded a new gaming laptop that's supposed to be great a Lenovo Y P It's got an intel i GB RAM GB nvidia geforce TB HDD so Slow boot time and apps freezing? it's supposed to be great Except it isn't It came with Win installed and the first times it booted up real fine but it quickly became slow Even as slow as my old laptop The games run just fine no problems there but at the moment of multi tasking iTunes sometimes freezes and stops working same with Skype Windows Explorer Microsoft Word and the Pokki start app Even the start-up is starting to take a long time now It's not that awful of a situation it's just that It shouldn't happen Is my pc still missing in hardware Or could it be something else like RAM configuration or a virus or something else that makes some applications freeze Thanks for your time Edit What I've tried so far uninstalling most of the useless pre-installed software AVG MBAM and SpybotSD scans disk defragging Not that much of a difference
