Customization :: Disable Auto Arrange In Windows Explorer

Nov 29, 2015

I have disliked this "feature" since windows 7 and I see they still have not restored the ability to manually sort without having to give every file a "tag". Note: I do not want to use windows live essentials as I hate photo gallery, so this is not an option. I used to be able to arrange my photos by dragging and dropping them next to another similar photo and it would snap to grid where I dropped it. This eliminate duplicate pictures. I found this ink for windows 7:

Windows Explorer Auto Arrange - Disable. However it says very clearly at the beginning not to use it for any other OS versions. Does this works for windows 10 as well or if there is a way to do it in windows 10? I would prefer a 3rd party program as oppose to editing my registry if it can work (all the things that need "fixing" for customization in windows 10 seem to always suggest a reg fix, but I am afraid to edit my registry too much).

I have the Auto Arrange Icons turned off.But when I try to drag an icon somewhere it refuses displaying a circle with a line through it.I can Ctrl-X and Ctrl-V it to a folder somewhere else but that is not what I want to do.I have tried using 'Fences' (but it will not let me drag the items into the fences either (have deleted 'Fences' just in case it was causing the problem - it was not the cause of the problem).I don't have a lot of icons on my screen, but do like to arrange them.

Possible To Disable Auto Reboots For Updates?

Aug 21, 2015

Wondering if this is possible on Windows 10, Not delay, to DISABLE AUTO reboots when a user is logged in ?

When I am done doing someone on my PC, I just kind of walk away, it goes to sleep, the monitor shuts off after about 25 min, so I just hit the space bar and I am back to where I was. This is always how I have used my computers at home and I need to continue to this way. I DONT want to hear, SAFE YOU FILES, CLOSE your Programs, etc, That is how YOU USE YOU computer, not mine.

So after installing Windows 10, it just takes it on it's own, no setting I have found to disable it, I am ok, with Windows yelling at me "reboot me !!!" ever few hours but, taking it on it's own to reboot over night is a problem.

2 times now I have lost something that was open, One was a game I had minimized that I forgot about before I went to bed and lost my progress.

Accounts :: How To Disable Auto Login Last User / Black Screen At Boot

Dec 24, 2015

Alright so for some reason ever since I've "upgraded" to Windows 10 from Windows 8.1 I've been having numerous issues with my computer taking a very long time to boot and I've noticed it is logging me in sometimes without asking me for my password at boot. I really want to stop the black screens as waiting 5-10 minutes every time I turn my computer on is annoying. Also I don't see why it would log me in without prompting for my password as why else would I have a logon password?

Explorer Auto Scrolls To Top Of Folder Whenever Background Changes

Sep 5, 2015

Why windows explorer would constantly reset itself to the top of a folder regardless of what action is being performed. Became incredibly infuriating when trying to organize and rename a bunch of folders and files, as it would cancel anything I may be typing and snap back to the top of the folder.

Traced the cause to happen once every minute, which also happens to be the timer for my background to change. Checked it out, and sure enough, when the background changed, windows explorer would reset to the top of the folder. Any way to stop this from happening, not including the idea of turning up the timer? I'm fine with my background changing less frequently, but it still doesn't solve the fact that it will still happen whenever it decides to cycle over.

Toolbar Link Order - How To Arrange Non-alphabetically

Oct 9, 2015

I prefer to use the toolbar for multiple tabs, each with several links to launch programs. In Win7, I was able to arrange the order to my preferences, the most used programs at the top. Since I updated to Win10, some tabs are still in non-alpha order, and some not. If I rearrange them to my preference, the next time I open the toolbar tab, they are back to alpha order. How to arrange in non-alpha order?

Customization :: How To Disable DesktopThumbnail Previews

Dec 14, 2015

**Win-10 / build 10586.14

I am trying to find a way to prevent image thumbnails from displaying on my Desktop only.

I have my folder options set to allow for thumbnails. I embed images often, and I find it much easier when I can look for the image by sight, rather than by name only. I am trying to find out if I can leave my folder options set to allow for this, but not to allow thumbnails on the actual Desktop.

I thought that thumbnails would only work when the icons are set to size 'medium' and above, however I did right-click the Desktop and select "Small Icons," but the files still show as thumbnails.
