Move Windows From One Virtual Desktop To Another

Aug 24, 2015

This seems to be a tedious process of going to the task view, then finding the window and right clicking and sending it to another desktop.

Is there something simpler? I was expecting a right click on the taskbar would give this option, but it does not. Is there a keyboard shortcut perhaps?

Possible To Install Laptop Hard Drive Into Desktop Then Move Windows Install To SSD?

Jan 15, 2016

I'm about to build my first desktop, and I have a laptop with Windows 10 (upgraded from 7 which it came with). I don't plan on using the laptop anymore, so is it possible to install the laptop's hard drive into the desktop then move the Windows install to an SSD? If not, should I just buy a Win10 key or would it be possible to contact Microsoft about transferring the OS over?

Virtual Desktop Slide Effect With Keyboard Shortcut?

Aug 22, 2015

I am using the keyboard shortcut (CNTRL+WIN+arrows) to get to different virtual desktops. But I don't like the slide effect since it kinda makes me dizzy (I have issues with vertigo). Is there a way to just have it "snap" to the different desktops without any sort of transition effect?

Why Do Desktop Icons Move Around

Feb 3, 2016

Why do desktop icons move around? I know my Surface 2 with Windows RT had the same problem with things shifting around for no good reason.

Anyway, I just had to restart my Surface Pro 4 because the pen decided to stop working -- again -- and re-pairing it didn't correct the problem. So it reboots and when the login screen pops up it's randomly rotated 90 degrees. Why; the thing NEVER moved from landscape position on my desk.

I awkwardly sign in (WITHOUT moving or rotating the computer at all) and once I'm deposited on the desktop again the couple dozen icons I keep there are all jumbled around. Now keep in mind, it's not like my desktop is totally packed with junk, I keep ongoing projects and things like that there for easy access. Icons often get jumbled around when I use the SP4 in tablet mode, which is annoying beyond belief.

Desktop Icons Move During Sleep

Sep 4, 2015

I have two benq 27" ips panels connected using displayport 1.2. Sleep is disabled for the computer however the monitors turn off after being idle for 30 minutes. When I wake the monitors from sleep all of the icons have move to different locations on the primary monitor. If any icons are on the secondary monitor they are moved to the primary monitor. This is extremely annoying. If any applications are open the windows get resized and moved around as well.

Move Icon From Taskbar To Desktop

Aug 14, 2015

Is there a way to make W10 move an Icon from the Taskbar to the Desktop? I could do this in W8.1 although I was using Start8.

This has become a minor issue with W10 since when I install an update to a program (reinstall a newer version) the "old" Icon in the Taskbar becomes unusable. That would not be a problem EXCEPT on two of my 6 W10 machines the install does not create a new Desktop Icon automatically!?

Also, is it possible to create a Desktop Icon from the All Apps list. I find the "Pin to Start" and "Pin to Taskbar" by right clicking on the program but the "Show Icon on Desktop" feature is not there or at least I can't find it?

Desktop Stop Icon And Cannot Move Icons

Sep 5, 2015

I upgraded from Win 7 Pro to Win 10. All seemed fine.

Installed the trial version of Stardock Start 10, again all things seemed fine and worked properly.

Then about two weeks ago, I noticed I could not move any of my desktop icons to reposition them on the desktop, I would get a grayed out 'stop' icon when I left clicked on the icon to move it.

Align icons to grid is ticked but not the auto arrange. I tried having both unchecked and still had the 'can't move icons issue'.

I have installed on my machine for fixing a problem I had in Win 7 and decided to use it with Win 10.

Tweaking recommends you restart in SafeMode, which I do, (icons could be moved in SafeMode by the way) and then it does its thing and when finished I then restart the PC back into normal mode from safe mode (side note, it has gotten stuck in safe mode where you cannot restart in normal mode. Even after going into MSCONFIG and clicking Normal mode it would still restart in Safe mode. Don't know what that is about and after running tweaking again it would finally restart normally).

The problem would seem to be fixed, up until I shut down the system, then when it reboots, I again can't move any icons, and I get the gray 'stop' circle.

I have tried multiple malware/anti virus scans and have not been able to find anything (at least while the PC is running, maybe I need to try using a boot CD and scan then).

Side note, I have noticed that when using Stardock Start 10 to emulate the Windows 7 interface, when you search in programs and files, when you go to select any Windows program (ie create a restore point) it gives you an error message (I'm at work so I don't remember it exactly) like you don't have rights to run the program or a different message of it cannot find the path to the program.

When I first installed Stardock that did not happen and I could open up anything with out issue.

I will try and post screen shots of the 'stop' icon and the error messages when I get home.

Is There A Simple Way To Move Windows Install To SSD

Sep 28, 2015

I'm currently on a 1TB HDD (roughly 700GB used) and recently picked up a 120GB SSD for the OS and whatever game I am playing at the time. I've gotten mixed messages regarding the most efficient method to do this. I'm just thinking of creating an usb installer of Windows 10 and just installing it straight to the SSD and then deleting the windows files from the HDD.

Is there a simple way to move my windows install to the SSD? I can't clone my HDD since it is much larger then my SSD and I don't have enough storage to move enough data off of the HDD to get that down under 120GB.

Virtual Key Stuck Down Even If Keyboard Is Unplugged

Aug 21, 2015

I am periodically experiencing an issue where the o button starts typing itself continuously until I either restart or lock the PC. It's not a keyboard issue, since it happens whether the keyboard is plugged in or not, even with a different keyboard.

I haven't yet found a way of triggering it, but once it starts, it happens quite often after each time I stop it.
