Installation :: Links With Empty Target Field?

Oct 13, 2015

I have lots of links after my Windows 10 installation that appear to go nowhere (i.e. Properties shows the the target to be blank). For example File Explorer shows a link "This PC > Pictures > Local Settings" with an empty target field. May these be deleted?

Installation :: Clicking Links Keep Asking To Choose Between Browsers

Aug 4, 2015

I have Windows 10 Pro. on my desktop and Windows 10 Home on my laptop. On both I have the default browser set to Internet Explorer. I'm using IE instead of Edge because I need the use of some add-ons that cannot work on Edge. My issue is that on both computers every time I click a link on a document or email I get the message in the screenshot below.

When I click a link a pop up message ask "How do you want to open this". There is also a check box that says "always use this app". Even though I always check the box to always use IE, the message comes up every time. If I set Edge as the default browser I do not get that message.

Installation :: TP Latest Build Install On Empty Machine

Jul 4, 2015

Right, so I've got a laptop that I'm currently trying to install windows 10 tp onto. It's the exact same model as the one I'm running on (it's my brothers, and I'm trying to fix it for him), but I've hit a snag.

The insider program website says that you can burn the .iso to a dvd and install it like that, but I've done that, and the laptop just stalls at a windows logo screen.

There's no operating system currently installed -- all 900 someodd GB are free and, using a windows 8 install disk to access a command prompt, DISKPART says the partition is healthy. I've cleaned and formatted it several times now to no avail.

Accounts :: Administrator Access - No Field To Enter A Password

Sep 8, 2015

I just upgraded my laptop from windows 7 to windows 10. Before I upgraded, my brother created an account for himself and windows 10 seems to think that his account was the main one. He didn't have administrator access, so now I'm locked out of everything that requires administrator access.

When I try to install new software, the security pop up happens, asking for an administrator password, but there is no field to enter a password.

I can't open the command prompt (windows -> cmd -> enter)

I can't switch accounts, logging out lists no other accounts.

How do I get administrator access back, and how can I make windows stop thinking I'm my brother?

Browser/Email :: Show Contacts In To Field Of Mail App?

Nov 20, 2015

I thought I'd install Windows 10 Threshold 2 (not to make the same mistake twice, on a laptop I hardly use this time) to see if the built-in Microsoft apps are now any better than they were in July. Disappointingly, with the exception of being able to turn off 'Conversation View', the Mail app is just as diabolically poor as it was back then. But on top of that, another thing I noticed this time is that when you type a name into the 'To:' field, it doesn't even look up that name / email address from your 'People' app contacts. The auto-complete feature only populates for people you've previously emailed.

So basically, if you haven't emailed someone, it won't show their name despite their details and email address being listed in the 'People' app.

Of course, another problem with not populating the auto-complete addresses from your address book is that if a contact changes their email address and you update their details in the 'People' app, the Mail app will still use the old email address in the autocomplete dropdown, causing you to keep emailing the wrong address.

Did Microsoft seriously release a Mail app that can't even look up names in your contacts list?

Antivirus :: Bitlocker Inputs Multiple Characters In The Password Field

Oct 14, 2015

I have been using BitLocker for a long time now and in conjunction with Windows 10 for 3 months and today something weird happened. When I tried to insert my password at boot, when I pressed the Shift key in combination with any other key, it inserted tens of characters at once. Valid with any character I press while Shift is also pressed. I tried a different keyboard, same result. I removed Bitlocker and reinstalled it, same result. Reboots, etc. I tried it all.

Now the only way to input the password is to press Insert so I can see the characters, press CapsLock for the capital letters and delete all the additional 30+ characters that appear when shift is pressed.

Drivers/Hardware :: Can't Find Target Drive

Oct 10, 2015

I hardly ever use it, so hadn't noticed until today that my DVD drive has disappeared from Device Manager (no DVD-CD ROMs appear there at all) and I cannot use CDs/DVDs in my PC. I strongly suspect Windows 10 as the culprit. I upgraded from W7 early August. However, I can't seem to find any way to download / install the necessary driver.

I have a custom built PC. What I'm missing is: HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GH22NS40 ATA Device (CD-ROM drive). It appears that this is an LG product. I've checked their website and there only seem to be drivers for (up to) W7 here. If I download the zip file and open it, I get a DriveUpdater dialog box, but it says "can't find target drive" and I cannot therefore update. This link looked promising, but the downloaded DriverToolkitInstaller.exe application triggers my AVG, saying threat detected and removed, and I cannot proceed.

Pictures Folder Now Named As Videos After Changing Target Locations

Feb 4, 2016

I've recently been changing the target locations of some user folder (documents, pictures, videos, music) and seem to have messed something up during the process.

My 'Pictures' folder is now called 'Videos' and I can't rename it back to Pictures again. This is because its a user folder or 'shell' folder I've read. How to change it back?

Create Shortcut Target Path Points To Wrong Program Files Folder

Oct 9, 2015

When I create a shortcut to file in Program Files, the target path for that shortcut will be to Program Files (x86), even though the start in path will be correct. Furthermore, even though the target path is incorrect and no icon is displayed for the shortcut, the shortcut still works.Shortcuts to items placed in the Program Files folder by an installer do not have this problem. It is only for files that are manually placed in the Programs Files folder by me the user, i.e. copy and pasted there.

Nothing Happens When Click Links From Apps

Aug 2, 2015

Tried both Edge and Chrome browsers as default. Hyperlinks work properly from progs, as they should, but nothing happens when I try to click on links from Apps.

Seems like the new start menu has some hyperlinks and nothing happens when I click them:

Red boxes do not work.

Same goes for the Twitter app, every time there is a tweet with a browser link, nothing happens.

Tried messing around with the default browsers, but never got it to work.

Hyperlinks seems to work from normal progs though.

Outlook Links Won't Load In Browser

Dec 5, 2015

I just got Windows 10 and finally got my 2003 Outlook Mail Client to work. Previously, when I clicked a link in my Reading Pane, it opened in IE, my default browser. Now, I get a dialog box asking me for my link browser and presenting a Documents directory. When I finally find Internet Explorer in my Programs and enter it, I get the IE Home Page. The link doesn't load. I can't get the dialog back to change anything. What can I do to see the page I click on in my reading pane?

All Apps Button Not Working - Where Are Links Stored

Oct 10, 2015

At some point my "All apps" button has stopped working. Clicking on it causes the apps list to flash very very briefly then dumps me back to home screen. Everything else seems to work OK.

Where the links in that list of apps is stored? I'm thinking one of the links is broken causing the whole list to shut down, and if I remove links from the list one by one I can find it. That's the only thing I can think to try.

Unfortunately no restore points exist and Repair tools like Startup Repair Etc.

Right Click Start Button - Some Links Do Not Work

Aug 20, 2015

Another issue I see (on a different Win10 machine) is when i right click the start menu the links that are pointed out in red do not work. all other links work fine. It seems the shortcuts are broken but i looked in the user folders and they are all there. clicking the links in the users folder opens the screens but using the shortcut doesn't seem to work. it's very odd.

This is a Win10 Pro machine.

Apps :: Not Able To Change Default App For Magnet Links

Oct 27, 2015

I noticed since going to 10 that clicking on magnet links does not open bittorrent. I have rerun windows and still the same problem. in cyberfox i fixed it easily enough, but for chrome and torch no love. I found a couple of things about registry entries but they did not work. I try to assign bittorrent to magnet links in windows but i cannot choose a default app from the system, I only get what you see below which is to "look for an app in the store". there must be a way to fix this so i can pick an app already on my system.

Upgrade Invitation And Appropriate Links Disappeared - How To Get It Back

Oct 20, 2015

I reserved the update. The next time I clicked Windows update it showed Windows 10 as an update option.

I clicked the link to reserve a copy again but nothing has happened and 2 weeks have gone by. So how do I get back the upgrade invitation and appropriate links?

Customization :: Open Links Explorer Navigation Pin As Drop Down?

Jan 31, 2016

Which registry setting allows you to open the Links (Common Places FS Folder) explorer navigation pin as a drop down, as was the default behavior prior to the quick access pin being added in Win10?

For example, the Reg below will pin the Links folder back to the Explorer Nav Pane, however since the placeholders in the Links folder are shortcuts and not actual directories, no dropdown is able to be produced in the way that Windows 8 and backwards was able to.

Quick Access unfortunately doesn't offer the ability to rename anything pinned to it.

For example, I have a shortcut in the Links folder for both Start Menu locations (ProgramData and AppData), which I've renamed to differentiate between the two, however doing the same with Quick Access pins two folders named Start Menu as pinned placeholders... obviously a programmer missed that caveat of Quick Access.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00; explorer shell:::{d34a6ca6-62c2-4c34-8a7c-14709c1ad938};
Links Folder (Common Places FS Folder)
