A long while ago I downloaded SymMover and managed to really mess up my files. I managed to take Favorites, Desktop, and Downloads out of what I'm pretty sure is called the Navigation Pane. I have 2 different Download folders in the Pane, neither of which are the actual one, and I do not know where my Desktop folder is. I can get to it if I follow a link in my User file, but that's it.
The Pane-[URL] ....
My Desktop-[URL] ....
Do I need to restore my computer to factory settings?
I am new to Windows 10. I am trying to place a shortcut on the desktop to put the computer to sleep. I tried following the instructions from a few sites that recommended placing a link into the desktop shortcut menu and the suggested shortcut Command does not put the computer to sleep. instead it shuts the computer down. What is the Sleep command. The wrong command is as follows: Rundll32.exe Powrprof.dll,SetSuspendState Sleep.I tried one or 2 other variations of this command and the new shortcut also turned over the computer
I am having a problem with a folder/file placement. Every time, I place a folder or file on the right side of my desktop, the next time I boot my computer up it moves all of my folders/files at the left side of my desktop for no reason. I
Clean install build 10130. I can't find anywhere to choose the icons I want on the desktop. Used to be able to do this from Personalization but not any more. Can't find anywhere in Control Panel either.
I made the mistake of moving the download folder to the desktop folder. Now it uses the same folder for both desktop and downloads. I see no way to separate them again. On the "This PC" screen, it shows "Desktop" for both the download and desktop icons. I tried the regedit fix, but it didn't work. How can I separate desktop and downloads, like it was originally?
I just got my hands on a new UX305 from ASUS and it's working wonderfully. However, I wanted to change the icons for the Desktop, Downloads, Music, etc. folders in Quick access in File Explorer. I was able to do it on my main rig, but there is no customize tab for most of the folders in quick access, and those that do still don't allow me to change the icon.
I have lost all my Favorites in Edge. I have recovered a copy of the desired Favorites and have placed these favorites on my desktop as a file folder. The file structure has all the folders, and within each folder, the links to all the favorite websites. I have tried placing the contents of this file into the following location:
I understand that this is the default location for Edge Favorites. With the desired "Favorites" folder placed and verified in the above location and I open Edge and click on Favorites and all I see under Favorites are two folders "Favorites Bar" and "BookmarksBar" (as expected both currently empty). I had hoped to see also an expandable "Favorites" folder with all the subfolders. How to use the previous referenced Desktop file folder or its content to restore my Favorites in Edge.
After activation, the IE Favorites + Bar didn't install from Windows 8.1. I attempted to install using The Hub but it came back with 'Couldn't import favorites' from IE. I managed a manual install using cut and paste from the legacy IE file to the Favourites file in Win 10. This was successful for both Favorites and Favorites Bar, but it only lasted until the the machine was rebooted. The Favorites/Bar were once again missing from Win 10.
I have downloaded windows 10. I am having an aweful problem with my pointer - it self selects anything and everything. If left on a page it increases or decreases the viewing percentage. I looked in settings but couldn't see anything there to stop this.
I always like to have my Windows positioned in a certain way on my desktop, and even though some programs remain, a lot don't (i.e. 'This PC' & 'Documents' folder) never stay in the same place. It's always random when opened. Not a major issue I know. But annoying all the same. Is there a fix or workaround?
I am trying to place a bunch of scanned photos into chronological sequence of when they were taken during the year so I can use the slide show feature to review/view . I've named the files by what the event was, so alphabetizing won't work.
When I try to download ITunes, I get a successful note from ITunes,but then a pop up says error7 error(win5)so it wont work. I am also unable to reload my Kaspersky anti virus,with my CD,I get a message saying app was not installed.
I upgraded an HP Desktop which had Windows 7 Home Premium OEM installed to Windows 10. Everything seemed to go well. When I checked in Device Manager, I found my HP Printer drivers were not working. So, I tried to update them, no luck. I then went to the HP website and downloaded the new full feature software for my HP printer, which installed in the default download folder. When I tried to open the downloaded folder, a pop-up window came up asking Where I want to install this. I tried Internet Explorer, didn't work. Then another pop-up window came up with the download file in it, titled "View downloads-Internet Explorer." I click on open, then the first window pop-up opens again, "Where do you want to install this." I also, tried to download something else, same problem. I changed User Control Setting to never notify. I ran System File Checker. Still the same problem, will not install any download.
