Desktop Shortcuts Not Locating Files

Aug 5, 2015

I have a number of shortcuts on my desktop that when double-clicked respond with not finding the file using the path displayed. I have even gone to the file that the desktop points to and double-clicked it - with the same result. This has only started with W10 upgrade. However, there are other shortcuts that still work.

Some of my website desktop shortcuts have turned "generic".

My default browser is IE11. No, I do not have Chrome, FF installed. I do not like them at all. Least of all is Edge.

Shortcuts Won't Load Apps On Start Or Desktop?

Jul 30, 2015

shortcuts don't work on start or taskbar

Just installed Windows 10 - totally successful BUT: no shortcuts/links work in start menu, desktop or taskbar except for links to modern UI apps. Even weirder - shortcuts work if palced in saem directory as the target file/exe but not if then moved elsewhere, like desktop. And even weirder - right clicking a short cut and selecting open or run as administrator don't work, but selecting 'run with graphics card' does work.

I've tried every conceivable setting and nothing works. going crazy. This is installed on a Dell laptop.

Desktop Shortcuts - Preserve Order Of The Icons?

Aug 19, 2015

Noticed that their shortcuts on the desktop gets rearanched from time to time for no apperant reason? When I had last shutdown, I had a shortcut to Firefox and Excel located just below the "Recycle Bin" which is the second icon down on the left hand side of the screen below the icon for "My Computer".

When I next turned on my computer the shortcut icons had changed order with the shortcut to Excel at the top, followed by "My Computer", Firefox and "Recycle Bin".

Is there a setting in the registry somewhere that preserves the order of the icons?

Cannot Open Desktop Icons Or Create Valid Shortcuts

Feb 10, 2016

Since the last win 10 update, my desktop Folder icons do not work right. When I left click I get this

when I right click I get this

The only way I can open a folder (such as Downloads) is to right click, then select open.

I have tried creating new shortcuts and they do not work. Regular program shortcuts work fine. If I create a new short cut to a file, (ie a photo), I have to right click and select OPEN to view the file, then when I create a shortcut, it does not work unless I right click and select open.

I restored system to earlier date and all is well. When restarting computer I get force fed update. Selecting NEW from context menu was not there. I fixed that. Why come I get cmd when I try to open a folder?

Search Function Finds NO Programs Or Start Menu Shortcuts / Desktop

Jan 11, 2016

I recently performed a clean upgrade from a clean 8.1 Install of Windows Pro. It's connected to a domain and uses Folder Redirection. The search function finds NO programs or start menu shortcuts, desktop etc. When I click the start and start typing, a few things are found, and at the top of the window it says "these results may be incomplete".

I have rebuilt the search, stopped the services, renamed the data folder, and tried a new user profile, and it does the same thing.

Performance :: Sticky App To All Desktops?

Jan 4, 2016

Basically, I want to have this one application window appear on all desktops. I'd like to be able to do it without having to pay for other software to achieve this. (DisplayFusion will do it, but for a fee of $25. And I really don't want to run another process and pay for the use of just one feature.)

Apps Pause In Other Desktops

Jan 10, 2016

I like to hear some music in background while I'm working, like everyone does. So I fire off some playlist on youtube in some browser and put that browser in its own desktop. But recently I stumbled upon PerfectTube (check it out here [URL] .... ).

So instead of a browser I began to use PerfectTube but it seems that the App works as long as I'm in the same virtual desktop as the App is, if we switch the desktop the playback pauses( in some seconds). I first thought it was something to do with the App, so I tried other Apps, even they seem to suspend when in some other desktop.

Is there a way, a registry hack or some toggle I missed, to let the apps remain alive even when present in an other desktop. There seems to be no such problem with desktop applications like wmp or vlc.

Should Change User Accounts To Desktops?

Nov 8, 2015

Possibly in Windows XP when it was installed, in order to have several desktops, dealing with various subjects, I simply created a whole bunch of User Accounts. So, I changed user accounts to get to the desktop I wanted.

Now that I have Windows10, is there an advantage to using the New Desktop feature? I'd just have one user account then.

I'm using Fences to sort my desktops.

Also, my data, which shows up in my desktops is stored on a separate partition from C drive.

Customization :: Different Shortcut Icons On Different Desktops?

Aug 5, 2015

Is it possible to place different sets of icons on different desktop ? For example, having desktop 1 empty, desktop 2 full of files, desktop 3 with shortcuts to programmes/games, etc. Also is there a way to have a different wallpaper on each desktop, to tell them apart faster ?

My guess is all of that is not possible, given that additional desktops are not supposed to be "permanent", but rather added/deleted quickly. But maybe with a bit of tweaking ?

Opening Edge In Multiple Desktops

Nov 8, 2015

I have a question regarding Edge in Windows 10 with respect to "multiple desk tops".

Ive noticed that after opening a web site with Edge in the first desktop and then adding a second desktop (+,) that when I try to open a different website in desktop #2 WITH EDGE, it reverts back to the first desktop and wont allow you to open it in the second desk top as long as you are using Edge in desktop #2 after using Edge in desktop #1.

I'm not sure why this is the case, but I would imagine that quite a few people would like to be able to open websites on different desk tops using Edge in both. I don't think this can be done by simply creating a second desktop and trying to open a website with Edge after using Edge in desk top #1.

You can move a website using Edge in Desktop #1 to Desktop #2 (using Edge as well) by dragging and dropping from desktop #1 to desktop #2. This is fine, but I think it would be a lot better to be able to open a website directly in desk top #2 using Edge rather than having to drag and drop from desktop #1.

Drivers/Hardware :: New HDD Won't Show As Initialized With Desktops

Dec 24, 2015

My intention of using the HDD is to have it "mobile" and move it from my W7 desktop, W10 laptop, W10 insider and W10 RTM machines for storing images etc. It work's as expected when connected to W7 and my W10 laptop. It will not however work with either of my W10 desktop machines. i.e. When connected, it says the disk must be initialized before it can be recognized. I am using usb type connections, but I am guessing? Initializing will render the data on there now as useless?

Virtual Desktops - Apps Don't Run As Single Instances

Oct 3, 2014

Virtual desktops but IMO shouldn't each desktop run an application unaware that another instance might be running on another desktop. The OS itself can keep track of shared storage areas etc so we aren't talking here about running separate virtual machines.

What I'm thinking of as an example is say I'm running EXCEL on VD1 and I'm downloading data from the web. On VD2 I should be able to start another instance of EXCEL and download data from another website.

BOTH applications should still run irrespective of which desktop is the active one. I get the impression that the NON active desktops don't still continue to run processes in the background if they are essentially a "shared process" like EXCEL.
