Pull Down Menu Continually Disappear While Scrolling To Select Option
Oct 12, 2015
When I scroll to make my selection in a drop-down menu, the menu just disappears before I get a chance to select an option from the menu.
It happens over and over, even when I do my best to be quick in my selection. It is very frustrating when filling out forms, especially when unable to manually type selection in the box.
Don't know if it is related or not, but also having frustrations with keyboard... While typing, letters will not show when I type them. I must constantly be reading as I type to make sure each letter appears. Sometimes must hit the key 3-5 times before it appears.
I have a feeling this is not related to Windows 10... just thought I'd mention it too. Took me forever to type this!
I just canceled my Windows 10 download request because of "Secure Boot." I find it's very disturbing to work under its conditions of inflexibility. Without an option to select or deselect, Secure Boot is an irrational restriction on the individual.
My laptop touchpad scrolling stopped working this morning after I updated my gpu driver. I went to the packard bell website and looked at the touchpad drivers for my laptop. There is a synaptics one and a elan one.
I have them both installed on my laptop but it still isn't working and there is still no virtual scrolling option in synaptics. These are the options that I have in the synaptics settings:
This is what it should look like:
What do I have to do to get the scroll trackpad feature to work again? P.S, when in device manager, even though there is an ELAN tab in mouse properties, Only the synaptics driver shows up under the mice section in device manager. Does this mean that the synaptics driver is replacing the ELAN and I need them both for the scroll to work.
If I go into File Explorer, navigate to any Drive, and right click on it, the File Explorer menu just disappears. Nothing else happens. No other apparent side effects, but I would like to be able to right click on a Drive to view Properties, etc. This has been happening for as long as I can remember. I am running genuine Windows 10. Everything else seems to work ok.
For some instances, I do have a long right click context menu which causes it to require clicking the 'up and 'down' buttons respectively to see the hidden options. However, a mouse scroll is more convenient. I have tried various makes of mouse but none of them seem to be able to enable me to wheel scroll in a right click context menu.
A customer brought me a machine with an issue I have never seen before. All desktop icons were gone and the only thing on the desktop is 3 lines in the upper left (opens an empty start menu), 3 lines in the lower left (opens all programs list) and the power button above that. I have managed to bring the desktop icons back but when I click the start menu it switches from the desktop with icons to the above mentioned screen with no icons. When it is on this new screen you can't right click on anything. A new user works as it should.
I decided to make the jump to Windows 10 from Windows 8.1, and I have to say, the design looks simpler to use, but this new OS software has done something with my touchpad. Originally, on my Windows 8.1, I was able to scroll through whatever web pages or folders in my computer with one finger using my touchpad. With this new update, initially, I thought it broke my touchpad completely, but the problem has been narrowed down to having to now use two fingers to scroll in the most awkward way as this touchpad doesn't seemed to be designed for two finger scrolling. Is there a way for me to change this back? Would I have to revert back to Windows 8.1 to get my one finger scrolling back?
The laptop I am using is a Gateway NE56R34u, and the touchpad is an ELAN.
i uploaded windows 10 and it was doing fine for a day or two, then it started updates, stuck at 75% with the update circle continually turning. Only thing it will let me do is restart with ctrl alt del command. Other than that it's just a screen with the update circle.
My browsers continually freeze since "upgrading" to Windows 10. It is the now legendary "Shockwave Flash Player" issue - and it is intensely frustrating. Every day, use of any browser - explorer, chrome, firefox and that new "Edge" in Windows 10 results in pages freezing and the same tired old message about the Shockwave pulg-in not working.
Frankly I would like to be able to customise what used to be the Start Menu. I would like to have the run option available as well as the search option to search files/folders etc, as before.
Right clicking on an empty spot in the start menu doesn't give me anything. I've looked at tutorials on the search bar, but all I have available is Cortana, and hiding her doesn't give me any other search option. I don't use Cortana because I prefer google. Edge takes a very long time to load for me.
I have a new PC and my motherboard (z97A) for some reason doesn't support charging when the pc is off (apparently its for power saving lol) which is a big deal for me because I use a lot of wireless peripherals that are meant to be charged when I don't use my pc (overnight etc).
I wasted like over a month to find a solution to that but I got no luck so I just figured out that I'll keep putting my PC to sleep instead of shutting it down so it doesn't make any noise but it still provides power in the USB.
But the thing is, my sister likes to use my pc and I am ok with it, but she keeps turning it off instead of putting to sleep so I end up comming back from school and the mouse/headset aren't charged (because she turned the pc off instead of putting it on sleep) and its ridiculously annoying.
So I figured, if there's no option to shut it down in the start menu then she'll just put it to sleep instead! But I can't find any option to remove it from the start menu, there's only the option to remove the sleep mode which I don't want.
I don't care about using commands like shutdown or anything like that, I just don't want the shutdown option to appear in the start menu. Is there a way to do it?
Downloaded MemTest and when I right click on the .iso to burn to disc the option is not in the menu. I downloaded it on another Win10 machine with the same results, right click on the .iso does not have an option to burn to disc. Another .iso file in my downloads (Decrypt) has the burn to disc option on right click.
Both files are .iso and show as disc image. Why the memtest .iso does not have a burn to disc option? It's downloaded on two different computers so that pretty much eliminates a computer problem and another .iso file will burn to disc on both machines.
Apparently, I have yet another problem with Windows 10. I noticed today on my laptop that that when I right click on an application from the start menu there are options such as Pin to Start, Pin to Taskbar, Uninstall, Run as Administrator and Open File Location. However, when I right click on an application on my desktop PC, the only option I have available is Pin to Start.
I installed Win10 yesterday on my desktop, but sleep is not an option on power menu. Have tried all options that I find in various forums including driver updates and system settings, but can not get a sleep mode for the power menu. Maybe Win 10 thinks my desktop is a laptop as I only have hibernate for an option.
I have tried using hibernate, but my PC "wakes" anyway and uses too much power with fans. Only power saving solution now is to shut down completely each time I walk away. I have not found the solution in forums for adding back sleep to the menu.

It used to be when I press the power button, followed by the restart option, my PC will immediately perform the restart action.
However, not sure when it began, now when I click the power button, followed by the restart option, the "Choose an option" menu appears instead. I then have to select the first option "Continue - Exit and continue to Windows 10", thereafter which my PC will restart as required.
