How to force the properties window open in the foreground!

Q: How to force the properties window open in the foreground!

I've been fighting properties window since I installed window 10...
I use this function a lot. The problem is the properties window opens in the background.
So I have to minimize all the windows I have open to see the properties window.
The weird thing is the properties window is the only one that does that, When I open a new
window of anything it opens in the forground.
Is there a way to force the properties window open in the forground...Thanks...

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 everyone!
 
I tried to ignore this problem, but it has become increasingly frustrating when I have to work with files in Windows Explorer.
 
The problem is, when I right-click on a file and choose Properties, it takes 5-8 seconds to open the File Properties Window. Strangely, when I do the same with folders (Folder Properties) the window opens almost instantaneously as it should. I have tried to fiddle around with ShellExView but to no avail - after all, I assume that program is just for controlling context menu entries. I searched and googled but I couldn't find any similar problems, the closest I got was that software.
 
Do you know what's the problem? Thanks in advance! 

A:Windows Explorer takes 5-8 seconds to open a File Properties window!

You can keep disabling more non-microsoft extensions in shellexview and see if any of them are causing it (do a system backup first)

Hi there!

Yesterday Amazon sned me my copy of Windows 7 Home Premium and I installed the 64bit right after I saved my profile with the Windows EasyTransfer tool. Everything was migratet - perfect!
After installing iTunes I checked if my library was there as well: phew, it was there. Then I started to listen to my music and every minute or so the sticked iTunes icon started to blink and depending on the other windows in the foreground, iTunes was suddenly in the foreground. You can imagine how distrurbing this is.

Anyone of you has an idea what is causing this?

This might be something really simple but is there any way to set Windows (2000 and XP) to not automatically bring windows to the foreground? An example happens when I launch an app, I might go browse a site in IE while the application is loading. Once the application finished loading, it immediately takes over the foreground window. It?s a bit annoying when you?re on a page filling out a form and then, ?pop? you?re in Photoshop or something else. The same thing happens with Multiple IE windows as well. It would be nice if the window in the foreground stayed as the active window until you manually clicked out of it.

Just recently, I cannot bring a task to the foreground by clicking it's icon in the taskbar. This used to work really well. Now if I click the icon, it flashes orange, but nothing else happens. This seems to happens with all windows.. file lists, openoffice shreadsheets, opera browser.. but .. mozilla seems to work fine, so maybe this is related to a mozilla setting ? I am running mozilla ESR 17.0.6 (downloaded from my company's approved application site). Also, in the past week I tried using an external projector to display on a conference room, could that be related ? I have windows7 professional, and pretty much up to date with fixes due to my company's pushing on/installing fixes automatically. Any help would be appreciated, this is quite annoying.
Thanks !

Easier to back off to an old version if you save your profile. If the newer build is broken, just revert by copying a couple of folders.

Good day to all,

I am in dire need of help, It seems when i have multiple windows open the windows i have in the background will start to flash to the foreground specifically the corners of those windows. it will flash until I move my mouse over the affected areas but will only fix it for a few seconds.

so far I've cleaned all my temp files and useless junk, changed the foreground lock timeout registry value to 0, switched out the VGA cable to a DVI and back to a new VGA

if i take a screenshot while its happening it shows a perfectly clear image i also use this monitor for console gaming and don't have any issues there

A:Force Restart in window 8.1

Hi, Welcome to the forums.

As per MS site, 2 GB RAM is required to run Win 8.1 (64 bit). System requirements - Microsoft Windows

But, that does not mean that it will not run on 2 GB RAM. It might be slow, but certainly not reboot the PC. What version do you have? 32 or 64 bit? Here's how you can check it.

1. Open the Windows 8 Control Panel.
2. Touch or click on System and Security within Control Panel.
3. With the System and Security window now open, click or touch System.
4. With the System applet now open, titled View basic information about your computer, find the System area, located under the large Windows 8 logo.

Rebooting can be caused by lot of reasons. One of the reasons that comes to my mind is, your PC might be installing updates and it reboots automatically. Here is a small link to guide you on how to disable auto shutdown. How to Stop Windows From Automatically Restarting After an Update

USE this ONLY if your PC is downloading updates and rebooting itself.

I tried holding down the ctrl. key and closing the window but the next time the computer boots it does the same thing. It is not possible to drag this type of window in any way. The only option for this type of window in the upper right corner is an X to close it. It may need a registry edit but I don't know how.

A:Keep Getting Ise32 Properties Window On Startup

It's not unusual to receive such an error after using tools to remove malware infection.A "Cannot find...", "Could not run...", "Error loading... or "specific module could not be found" message is usually related to malware that was set to run at startup but has been deleted. Windows is trying to load this file but cannot locate it since the file was mostly likely removed during an anti-virus or anti-malware scan. However, an associated orphaned registry entry remains and is telling Windows to load the file when you boot up. Since the file no longer exists, Windows will display an error message. You need to remove this registry entry so Windows stops searching for the file when it loads. To resolve this, download Autoruns, search for the related entry and then delete it.Create a new folder on your hard drive called AutoRuns (C:\AutoRuns) and extract (unzip) the file there. (click here if you're not sure how to do this.)Open the folder and double-click on autoruns.exe to launch it.Please be patient as it scans and populates the entries.When done scanning, it will say Ready at the bottom.Scroll through the list and look for a startup entry related to the file(s) in the error message.Right-click on the entry and choose delete.Reboot your computer and see if the startup error returns.IMPORTANT NOTE: ise32.exe is related to the family of worms and IRC backdoor Trojans. Backdoor Trojans, IRCBots and Infostealers are very dangerous because they provide a means of accessing a computer system that bypasses security mechanisms and steal sensitive information like passwords, personal and financial data which they send back to the hacker. Remote attackers use backdoor Trojans as part of an exploit to gain unauthorized access to a computer and take control of it without your knowledge.

A:Print properties dialog window does not appear

Printers can be very frustrating to say the least. When I've had printer problems in the past, this is what has worked for me:

1. Unplug the power to the printer
2. Wait about 30 seconds or so
3. Plug it in and let it go through it's initialization
4. Then try it again

If that doesn't work, try reloading the printer driver from the HP site. If it still doesn't work, try a system restore back to the last time the printer was working successfully. That's about all the tricks I know for printers. Hope it helps ...

I think this topic has been explored (sorry no pun intended) before, but what I want to do just ain't working.

I want any URL that I click on while inside IE7 to open in a new tab (or a new Window - I'm not fussy) - and KEEP THE CURRENT PAGE OPEN - without my having to always right-click to choose one of those options. I have tried everything and nothing works - whenever, for example, I'm doing a search in Google and choose to look at a particular URL, IE always opens a new window - but closes the window (ie the Google search page) I was just looking at. So, when I want to go back to my search page, I have to "left-arrow" until I get back to it.

Anyone know of a solution to this??

Welcome to the Forums Clockwork,

So if I get it correctly you want to rename multiple files at once?
If so, go to the folder they are located in, click anywhere in the folder, hit crtl and a at the same time to select all the files and then hit F2

After that you'll see that the name banner of the first file in the folder turned empty. You can now type the name you want it to have in, and hit enter. It will change all the files to that name, followed up by a number.
Hope that that helps!

A:Window Sys32 Properties Appears On Opening

The System32 folder opens at startup because of a corrupt system registry value. The value could have been corrupted for a number of reasons to include malware or installing/uninstalling a program from the Internet which did not install/uninstall itself properly.Click on the link below:http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_tweaks.htmScroll down to #260 and click "System32 Folder Opens Upon Boot" in the right column. You will be prompted to download xp_systems32opens.vbs. Save the file to your desktop and double-click on it to run the script. Since the script modifies certain registry settings you may receive an alert from your anti-virus or any script blocking program. Ignore the warning and allow it to continue.The problem could also be caused by empty run entries in your startup shortcuts which will open the system32 folder. Check the startup run registry entries and remove those entries. See System32 Folder Opens When Logging on to Windows.These steps involves making changes in the registry. Always back up your registry before making any changes. If you are not familiar with working in the registry, then you should NOT attempt to make any changes on your own. Improper changes to the registry could adversely affect your computer and render it inoperable. ERUNT is an excellent FREE tool that allows you to to take a snapshot (backup) of your registry before making changes and restore it when needed.

When I go to close the Properties window I a message that says "You are about to change the permissions settings on the root directory of the startup disk which can result in unexpected access problems and reduce security. Do you want to continue?".

I answered yes and it went through all the folders and gave an access denied message on system folders. After if was done I got the same message mentioned when I tried to exit the Properties window. So I removed sharing and the Everyone group. But I'm still in the same situation. I keep going through the same loop and can not exit the Properties window.

I'm a dedicated Firefox user, but also like to fool around with other browsers. However, I often give up on IE(11) because I can't get it to automatically open links into new tabs. By "automatically," I mean when left clicking a link, that link should simply open into a new tab (as does FF) and not open in the tab from which the link was selected. I don't want to have to either right click and "choose open in new tab" or have to use the keyboard. For the life of me, I can't understand why IE can't be made to force a link to open in a new tab with one simple left click?

Back in the good ol' days of Win95, someone wrote this little app - I forget what it was called - that enabled you to dictate how many browser windows could be open simul. The user could set that number. This was to prevent unwanted adverts from opnening in new windows. So, if the user set this to 1, and you went to a page that wanted to open an advert in another window - that window would not open. It worked great.

I find it hard to believe that in this day and age, no such app exists. Yet a search yielded nothing (unless maybe I didnt do a good job searching).

Anyone know of any app?

Hi,

I use Windows Explorer a lot, and I open it with Win+E. For unknown reasons, Windows Explorer on my new laptop opens in the "My Computer" folder. I want it to open in "My Documents", how is this done?

The properties of the Explorer icon in the start menu show Target: %SystemRoot%\explorer.exe and Start in: %HOMEDRIVE%%HOMEPATH%. Maybe this should be changed. Please note: I do NOT want the solution where a new Explorer shortcut is created on the desktop with an appropriate folder pointer. That means Win+E can't be used, and another pesky shortcut on the desktop.

Suggestions?

I changed the Default to T: and now Windows + e opens my T: drive automatically. This article will explain it a little better.

Recently I worked on an XP machine that only had SP1 and a big spyware problem. I ran Ad-aware, hijackthis! and all the normal stuff to get rid of this. I cleaned up the spyware, but it disabled the control panel, task manager, regedit, and properties in IE. I managed to fix all of them except I don't know how to re-enable the properties for IE (the customer claims that it won't show properties for anything). Does anyone know of a reg key that disables/enables this? When you click to show IE properties, it doesn't do anything at all.

I don't think you can control that from a link. That would be governed by the local computer's settings and policies. You wouldn't want a website link to be able to have that kind of control over a system.

I would like to be able to open a new browser window in Firefox which would start at the identical location to the one that's open rather than opening at the home page.

In IE, File / New / Window works well for this purpose, and then if you wanted it to start at the Home Page, you could just run Explorer a second time.

It gives the flexibility of going off on other trails with the additional window, but still having the original window open. I'm not crazy about tabs which take up extra space in the browsing window. However, is there even a way to open a new tab at the same location as the current window? Maybe I'm missing the joy of tabs somehow and am stuck in my old way of thinking. Still, I would like to know if what I want is possible.

Thanks.

A:[SOLVED] Open new browse window at same location as current window

Hi I don't think that is an option but I understand what your after and this is the way I do it with keyboard short cuts of

Ctrl + C = copy (While holding down Ctrl tap the C key once)
Ctrl + V = paste
Ctrl + T = new tab
Ctrl + N = New page

OK starting with tabs which I think is the best thing since sliced bread. You have the page open that you want to start with go up to the URL at the top of the page (do it with this page) click only once on the URL this will highlight it or if you like to say select it.

Now to copy the URL Ctrl + C your computer will remember this link until you either copy something else or you shut down the computer.

Now we open a new tab Ctrl + T a new blank tab will open and the URL location is blank but with the cursor already in it so we paste the URL there by Ctrl + V and tap the enter key and you have the duplicate page

Now working with a new page there is just a couple of small differences.

You have the page open that you want to start with go up to the URL at the top of the page (once again do it with this page) click only once on the URL this will highlight it or if you like to say select it.

Now we open a new page with Ctrl + N a new page will open but the difference is it will not be blank it will be your home page so as there is already a URL that we want to get rid of. The simple way is to once again click on it only once to select it then paste the saved URL by Ctrl + V and tap the enter key and you have your duplicate page. I may have made this sound involved but just try it once and you will see it's quite simple.

Another thing I do is when I have a google search page open or a page with several links I want to look at.

I hold down Ctrl while I click on links that way I still have my original page and everything opens in new tabs.

I've just bought this laptop for a week then yesterday I noticed that I can't open My Computer Properties ... it shows "Data Execution Prevention - Run a DLL as an App" and when I tried to open Control Panal - System, it shows "RUNDLL - an execution occurred while trying to run C:\windows\system32........"
How could I fix it?

However, I see a strange folder in BACKUP(D:\) it names Ghost\gho 2003.gho ... Is it virus?

Thanks in advance

Hi all,
I am totally stumped on this.
When I right click my desktop and go down to properties nothing happens and the same thing when I try in the control panel.

I have cleaned the registry and also ran 4 spyware apps but still no joy!

Any ideas?
I really need this asap as I have an important test coming up and the software I need to study with says that I need to change to font sizes for it to run!

Help would be gratefully recvd!

Regards,

Al

I've tried to get my display properties open through every means i know. And the best the computer will do is change the cursor to the thinking symbol before stopping again!
Apologies if this has been posted before but it's driving me crazy and I can't see it anywhere else.

I've tried turning my firewalls off.
Stopping all timed tasks.
Pressing Ctrl whilst clicking the display logo.
Checking for viruses and spyware again and again.

Anybody experienced this or knows how to fix it that would be fantastic.

A:Display properties won't open

If it helps any I don't remember it happening before I installed SP2.

Perhaps there are known issues with this?

hi i have windows 7 home premium 64bit where im loggin as administrator. Im trying to access the properties of TCP/IP but i couldnt; when i click on TCP/IP and click on Properties; the properties screen just pops for blink seconds. Also uninstall option for TCP/IP is grayed whereas i can successfully uninstall/install other things like Client for MS Networks, File & Print Sharing for MS Networks.

I triend uninstalling network card driver and reinstalling it but still same problem.

This problem is happening with my both Wireless Network Adapter and Wired Lan adapter.

A:cannot uninstall TCP/IP or open TCP/IP Properties

The uninstall option being grayed out is normal. You can't uninstall TCPIP, IPV4 or IPV6, in windows 7. Is your network connection working? Have you removed any Virus infections or malware lately? Some times the tcpip stack can get corrupted by a virus or virus removal. Have a look at this: How to reset Internet Protocol &#40;TCP&#47;IP&#41;

As Edge browser doesn't support modaldialog, I want to pass some value to another window using window.open
From a parent window say A, trying to open another window - ChildWindow.htm using window.open. I am unable to pass string value from A.


var dialog = window.open("Child_Window.htm?", "title", "width=550px, height= 350px,left=100,top=100,menubar=no,status=no,toolbar=no");

dialog.MyVariable = "some string value";
dialog.opener = window;

In Child window, I get undefined reading the variable in the second window.

Hi,

I have recently upgraded to Windows 7 and Office 2010 and though I'm starting to get used to all the changes there is one thing which is really bugging me.

When I have two separate Excel windows open and open an Excel file from Windows Explorer the file will open in the first window not in the active Excel window. If I want to open a file in the second window I need to do it via Open.

Is there anyway of fixing this?

Thanks,

Emmy

I just got a new laptop with Windows 7, 64 bit system.
When I open an email...it opens correctly, but when I want to double click for the next window to open, I have to have toRIGHT click that window and instruct Windows to "Open to new Window".

Is there any global command that can activate this procedure automatically.
Thank you

Hello, at first I thought this was just a glitch or something but I've become convinced that I have some sort of virus. I an unable to open the computer properties, accessed through the start menu or from the system option in the control panel. I also can't open up msconfig, and microsoft office will no longer open either (it will get stuck on a windows installer option).

I have just recently re-installed windows and was trying to activate it with my key when I realized that the computer properties won't open. Pleas help! Thank you.

I want to set it so nothing is selected as the default opening device.
But i dont get that option in properties, it will only allows me to swap opening the device, not delete it.

A:cant change the properties of a file to 'open with' nothing

I am not sure if there is a simple UI for that, but you can easily do this directly in the registry.

Open regedit, open the HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT key (click on it in the left pane) and scroll down to find the conf entry in the left pane, right-click on it, and delete. After you restart the machine, the file association will be gone.
