Desktop Icons Auto Align Left When HDMI Cable Connected
Jan 14, 2016
Whenever I connect my laptop to the TV via hdmi cable my desktop icons are moved and auto aligned in vertical columns down the left hand side of the page (my desktop). I have to drag them back to where I want each time. It's a fairly minor nuisance, but is there any way to avoid this, I've searched but can't find a definitive answer.
(I've tried, right clicking and unchecking 'align icons to grid' but that doesn't make any difference, it still always happens).
Windows 10 plays Mp3 Files just fine. Connect an HDMI cable to the video output port, and then windows 10 suddenly wont play those files. An error message pops us inside windows media player and Grove that this file type is not supported. Also no sound is played through the HDMI Cable to my TV, and no sound is played when i click the volume bar on the bottom right side.
I work for an integration company. We just installed a couple of conference rooms for a company in which we have an HDMI cable running from the table through the floor in the walls and to the TV. From there it breaks out into the Amplifier and plays audio in the room. Normally i bring my Mac book pro for testing but i purchased this Windows 10 computer as a test device. I did not have a second laptop with me to test this out.
However, With the computer and the HDMI cable i am getting video to the TV. When i enter my TV menu and arrow around the menu option my sound works on the built in speakers in the room. So i can confirm that the cabling is all correct. This is the identical setup that we always use. I have also plugged my Iphone into the cabling behind the TV and played music which worked perfectly fine.
The computer, as i mentioned, would play MP3 files perfectly fine, untill i plugged in the HDMI cable. Infact i can be playing and MP3 file and then plug in the hdmi cable and suddenly the computer stops playing the MP3 file and gives me the error that windows can not support this file type. Those same MP3's play on an SDCard in the TV when i access them directly from the tv. So those files are not bad. Also anything with audio fails to play anywhere (tv or locally on the laptop) when the HDMI is plugged in.
Also i have gone to the control panel and selected the Audio section and looked at the video card / audio output selections. When i have no HDMI cable selected the option for audio output changes to the internal sound card. (which is correct) and then i plug in the HDMI Cable and the audio switches to the HDMI output (which is correct)
the only two conclusions i can come up with are this particular computer has a bad video card. or windows 10 is not supporting audio output. I have never tested our setups with windows 10 before.
Last bit i'll include this is a brand new computer. Core i5 8Gb ram 1tb hard drive. its a toshiba.
I have a laptop. Acer e5-571g to be precise. So, i had a problem with an hdmi cable to tv - had no sound. Did a bit of research, tried some things out, nothing. Unplugged the cable and my screen icons went large, screen is blurry now. Drivers, i think, are up to date. Screen resolution is not the problem, icons are set to small. Restarted the computer too. Oh, and i have windows 10.
I've just noticed a feature which I don't think was present on Windows 7, but is on Windows 10.When a pop-up window is opened by an application the window is not aligned with the top left corner of the screen, it is slightly padded to the right. This seems to affect both pop-ups from browsers and from other applications (i.e Tkinter python frames).
Is there a way to prevent this from happening? I have written a program that interacts with an application that creates these kinds of pop-ups and my program is expecting the windows to be about 7 pixels to the left of where they are appearing.... This can be tested by turning off your ad blocker and going to URL...
Per the title, I run my computer through my TV using an HDMI cable. Sound works brilliantly on Windows 8.1 but after upgrading to Windows 10, I'm left without audio, and in the sound settings it doesn't show HDMI as an available device.
My HDMI Cable is not working on my Asus Notebook after I did the Windows 10 update. I have tried fixing the sound and resolution on control panel, i also made sure all updates and installation of apps are up to date, however, the TV doesn't seem to recognize the cable anymore, or the computer.
Tried changing the settings on the TV as suggested on one of these forums. I must be missing something.
I just upgraded to Windows 10 the other day and I have noticed that all my title bars seem to be left aligned rather then center for the title bar at the top of browsers and explorer and such. I also redid my system before upgrading so unsure if this is a Firefox issue or a Windows 10 issue have asked over on their forum also in case.
But is there a way to get my title bar at the top of the screen to be back to center rather then left aligned as I just prefer the text in the middle rather then on the left where it competes with the text in the menu. Based on what I read regarding centering the Firefox title it looks like by default it should be centered reason I am thinking this is a Windows setting over riding this.
So is there a way to center the title bars of programs and browsers rather then left align the title as I find the text competes with the menu text which is annoying for me at least.
My problem is i use a hardline into my computer and upon starting it up yesterday was greeted with the problem “no ethernet cable installed or connected”. I have replaced the cable already/restarted both the computer and router multiple times/did a system restore and none of those worked. Also disabled and re enabled the adapter multiple times.
The only thing that seemed to work or hint at the problem was a windows 8 forum that said to use an elevated command prompt to do “sfc/scannow” and that came back with errors. There was a “DSIM” command that was unable to find a correct download location.
I got a problem with USB cable. When I plug it in there is no action from system side. It should at least give me a message like"Unknown Device" but there is NO such message. I don't see it also in device manager...
I've checked same cable on different laptop (Windows 7) and it shows as "Unknown Device".
Scan for hardware changes also dont work for it...
- how to debug it? I've tried Microsoft and Intel drivers but with no luck
I am using Windows 10 - Intel 6 Series / C200 Series Chipset Family USB Enhanced Host Controller - 1C2D & 1C26 USB Drivers
Only once in a blue moon do I see clean shortcut icons without arrows. It's almost always shortcut icons overlaid with black squares on the lower left corners. I had checked the Windows Registry against the steps in the article twice to find that they were all correct.
I use "Align Icons to Grid" to line up icons on my Desktop. However, I find the resolution of the grid is too coarse. How can I reduce the icon spacing between icons for the "Align Icons to Grid" option?
Every time i make a restart on windows 10 the icons take all the time the same order.For example i move 5 icons to the right side of desktop,then after restart all icons go to the left in order.I have no ides what is going on and i have tried lot of stuff with no luck.
Every time I restart or boot up my PC with my monitors turned on first I always get a issue with the monitor connected to the HDMI port, it always says "Input not supported" and all I do is turn my monitor off then back on and the issue has been resolved...
All my desktop icons are stuck on the left side of the desktopAll file explorer view are stuck in details view. Now yes, I have turned off Auto-arrange, still refreshes to all icons on left. I have tired ALL sorts combinations of view + sort by... nothing. I have tired many anti-malware/virus scans and nothing has come up. I have tired CCleaner pretty much everything and the problem persists.
Of note, I had done a system restore a week and half ago to a specific point and that fixed the problem but for just a day, then it happened again. When I got around to having time to go for another system restore, that restore point was gone and now no other restore point is fixing the issue -_-That left me to think it might be something I installed or perhaps a windows update... but after having uninstalled pretty much everything I could that I installed in the last week as well as removing recent updates.... nothing. I have also tried making a new windows account (local)... nothing. Also tried in safe mode, still nothing.
I have an Asus Desktop. I plugged a working HDMI cord into my older Sony Bravia TV (Smart TV). I have a GTX 760 192 Bit NVIDIA graphics card. I went to the NVIDIA control panel, and it wont read the TV. I tried going through the windows 10 64 bit version of trying to find connected devices, and the TV shows up but as a media streaming device. It almost seems like the PC itself doesn't know it has an HDMI slot.
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.
After a day using windows 10 I can't click any icons on the system tray and I can't click the windows button. I can click them with the right mouse button. When I left click on them it gives a short loading cursor and after that it doesn't do anything.
After the 12Jan2016 Windows 10 Home updates some taskbar icons became unresponsive to a left click of the mouse. Examples are the leftmost for access to all applications, the right most to access the calendar, the next most rightmost to access notifications. Right click of the mouse on the icons works as expected.
I upgraded to Windows 10 about a month ago. Two days ago my computer is all the sudden automatically downloading some. Massive update that took a long time and rebooted my computer without prompting me.
After the download was complete I was able to use my computer seemingly as normal, but upon the next restart, the start menu wouldn't open, and the mouse wouldn't click on any of the icons. I tried a restart and got two pop up error messages saying something like "Windows failed to start properly." I tried a hard reboot a coupe times, same thing.
Google searched the problem, found this and followed the steps: How to fix Windows 10 start-up problems - Blackscreen, Bootloop, Infinite Loading [HD 60FPS] - YouTube
No luck. Now every time I boot up my computer it goes to the "automatic repair screen."
I have tried every option available from the "automatic repair screen" menu, including System Restore: because I just downloaded Windows 10, I had no restore points. System Image Recovery: it says have no image to recover). Start Up Repai: tells me Windows can't repair the problem. Command Prompt: I've been able to get in there but I don't really know what to do once there (tried what was suggested in the video above, no luck, everything was already set to zero) Startup Settings:WAS working, I was able to start up in Safemode once, still couldn't click anything and start menu still wouldn't work. Now when I click on Startup Settings and click the restart button to get to the Startup options it just brings me back to the "automatic repair screen" ...I think I've rebooted so many times at this point that my computer can't reboot without taking me there.
I've even tried the "reset this PC" option multiple times and every time it starts to reset, gets to 1% or 2% and then I get an error message saying something went wrong and the PC can't be reset.
How do you scroll the desktop (with the aps) in Windows 10 from left to right instead of up and down. I used my landlord's laptop and his scrolled right to left but he didn't make it that way so he doesn't know.
