In Windows 8.1, if I split my display in half - I could have multiple apps like Internet Explorer and Visual Basic open. Then if I was watching a video on YouTube in full screen mode, the video would still only be displayed in the half of the screen so I could still multitask and do something else in the other half. However if I try to do this in Windows 10, the YouTube video in full screen mode does actually put the video in full screen and takes up the whole display. Is it possible to just get it to display in half of the screen like in Windows 8.1 or is this not yet possible? Was a really handy feature!!
Two week ago I upgraded to windows 10 and immediately installed a new SanDisk Extreme Pro SSD Drive. All is working fine with the exception of Netflix that freezes avery minute or so in medium and full screen, (works ok in minimized screen).
I understand Netflix needs "Silverlight" to function which is supposedly supported by Windows 10 but not by Windows Edge. I've tried running Netflix on Explorer but still have the same problem.
In Apps downloaded from the Windows Store (such as Words With Friends or a million other apps - not regular 'Windows Applications' such as Photoshop or something), they run in a special 'shell' that is obviously controlled by the OS. There are now 4 buttons in the top right (Close | Max/Restore | Minimize | Full Screen - from right to left). All the normal windows shortcuts work for all the known buttons but none of the possible/expected key combinations work for the 'Full Screen' button (such as ALT+ENTER or WINDOWS+UP several times). The button looks like two arrows pointing outward at a 45 degree angle. If you ARE in full screen, they look the same but the arrows point inward.
After i upgraded to win10 i've encountered a problem i can't seem to figure out what is causing it. This happens on youtube in firefox, on twitch in opera and in vlc playing local files (all apps are latest version). But it's not a constant issue, it's intermittent. So it might happen every 10 min or so where something seems to hog all resources for a second.
What i've tried. Completely uninstalled and reinstalled vlc. Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /Restorehealth sfc /scannow All completed successfully, but with no change.
I upgraded my Lenovo U310 laptop from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 a week ago. Everything seems to have upgraded successfully. The only problem that I can find is that none of the video streaming from Windows 10 apps can be played. I get an error 'Unsupported video type or invalid file path' when I click on a video article in USA Today or when I try to stream video from any other apps, NBC News, MSN Money, etc... from Windows 10 store.
I have no issue streaming videos from any of the browser though. What could be missing that could cause video streaming to fail?
Okay so I updated from windows 7 to windows 10 i have these black bars around my screen instead of a full screen so I tried changing the resolution because it was set to 800x600 so I change it to 1920x1080.
I wanted to run some games on 1024x768 but i had black bars i fixed that problem by selecting 1024x768 resolution and scaling to full screen. But i want to know if there is a way to change the resolution to 1024x768 when the game opens instead of doing it manually and when the game closes the resolution goes back to normal which is 1366x768.
I note in the screenshots that there is an option in W10 marked 'Use full screen start when in the desktop'. This seems puzzling to me, as I will want to use the full screen start when on the start screen (of course) but obviously I won't want a full screen start when running the Desktop app. Is it possible to use the start menu when running the Desktop app and still have the full start screen presented when I close it/switch away from it? Much like Win8 (only with the new and improved start menu of course) where I right click on the Windows logo icon to get the start menu and left click it to return to the start screen?
I was working on my MIL's laptop over the weekend, and she was having problems with games on Windows 10. She's running a Yoga 2 Pro, and launching full screen games requires a resolution change. The game would launch, and be running normally, but attempting to give it focus would always drop you back into the desktop.
After doing some research, it's a remaining bug from the beta. Resolution changes causes the start menu to steal focus, which causes you to drop down into the desktop. Alt tabbing into the game repeats the cycle. The games (in this case) were not crashing, just unable to display.
I have inserted shortcut into startup listing but can't find the way to make it open full screen (app is XBMC/KODI). It opens after boot automatically but still has the task bar at the bottom and title bar at the top - not a good way to watch a movie.
With the latest Windows 10 update I can't play any game in full screen. As soon as I open the game my screen goes black and it tabs out to the desktop. Putting it in 1920x1080 (monitor size) won't work, because my pc isn't good enough to handle it.
My problem is that I set Media Player Classic for MP4, MPG, AVI, MKV and other formats and Windows Photo Viewer for JPG, PNG etc. The next day for some unknown reason I see these associated with Windows Video and Photo app instead! I right-slick on a MP4 files, select Open with->Choose Default app and set Windows Media Player Classic again for the millionth time. The next day I see the MP4 files associated with build-in Windows Video app!
I usually leave my computer running with the monitor switched off when in work (so I can access it via TeamViewer), rarely restart, if that matters. For other details see my specs.
I have a gigabyte MB with on-board graphics, 1 vga and 1 DVI as outputs.
I have 2 new asus monitors with 1 vga input and 2 hdmi inputs.
The vga to vga connection to monitor 1 produces full screen on 1920x1080 (recommended)
Asus furnished a cable DVI to HDMI. This connection (monitor 2) leaves about 1/2 inch blank space on either side and about 1/4 inch top and bottom. 1920x1080 (recommended). 1280x1024 setting fills the screen, but display looks stretched.
My computer has a mind of its own apparently. I can no longer view my regular desktop. All I get is the full start screen with all the stupid tiles on it. I have tried changing my settings, restarting, shutting down and rebooting, nothing is working. When I click the windows logo all I get is that same full start screen. Am I missing something? All I want is for it to show me my regular, normal desktop. Not these tiles!
