I get a sign of caution on the connection on the taskbar icon. I phoned B.T and they said it was a new DSL box I needed and then the problem will be solved. I put the new adsl fillter on and there is still a sign of caution on the task bar and I keep losing the connection.

  • How to get Windows Explorer to pin to the taskbar


    When I right click on Windows Explorer to get pinned and there is no element entrance does forr it pin to the taskbar OR the StartMenu , like most of the other applications in the my system.

    I was able to do on my system to my office, so I know that this is possible.  I got it made the pinned the system now have the problem, that is up to the Microsoft has eliminated the last fixes on Saturday 21 September 12 game that wacked my entire task bar, bar side and scrogged many other aspects of my system!

    I really hope that they actually only has finally fixed the leak of security IE forever with this patch as they promised and not just Fubar-ing of many systems to give the appearance of shutter makes the run with more than one finger! (but that too can depend on which finger gets referenced as I can think that a my system seems to have understood).

    That being said, let's start by skipping the usual diatribe of suggestions of neophytes who Parrot just what is on both boards, blogs and other forums with what I remember, try to address my situation:

    • I tried to drag links "Windows Explorer" and shortened to Windows Explorer to get the fallen on the toolbar.  No go!
    • I tried all the suggestions of registry to Windows Explorer PIN to the taskbar. No go!
    • I searched the registry for any key with PIN or NOPIN on their behalf and found Nothing. Although the PIN search revealed several keys and values with pin drowned in ( stri"," myPINing "", Snapine","OfficeVBAHelpinetlHiddenIntl_1033", nausea etc. to height of 3114 hits ad).

    But know the FUBAR occurred, does anyone have the best ideas on how to fix the problem with Windows Explorer so that I can once again pin it to my task bar and maybe my StartMenu too?

    Use search programs and files "windows explorer". When you right click on the link that there it will give you options to pin the taskbar icon or the start menu.

  • Some of the taskbar icons are blank sheets

    Some programs such as Internet Explorer, MS Outlook 2007 and iTunes are on the taskbar as blank sheets. I tried to place shortcuts on the desktop and go into properties and change icon. It has worked for other programs but the button change icon in these programs are blackened. Tried to enter the path to the programs without success.

    Is there anyway to make the icons for the programs show?

    Thank you!

    I have this problem, had to do a hard reset because of the loss of output video/media center crash on restart my Firefox Firstclass & icons are now leaves white, very annoying. Delete iconcache.db fix does not work. I was able to restore the icon to exe files, but the icons pinned Taskbar & Start menu, items do not update.
    My dose is as follows:

    Step 1:
    click Start > right click on the program in the start menu > properties > Shortcut tab > change icon > Browse (go to exe for this program) > select exe file > open > choose appropriate options icon. > ok > ok > if you get a message saying that only an administrator can do this, click on continue to apply the change.

    Step 2: start a session application & while it is running to right click on the taskbar icon > detach this program > new right click (watch now icon because it represents the application running, not the shortcut) > pin this program

    I'm not a fan of the new taskbar of the mac either style, it open & navigate several sessions of programs is tedious, especially when the previews seem to almost identical & if different programs use the same icon he adds to the confusion. Y at - it an option of the 'Classic' taskbar somewhere like the classic view for Control Panel, that they used to offer?

  • using the taskbar icon made a right-click menu options 'tasks' disappeared

    I'm on FF 34.0.5 running on Windows 7 Ultimate (V6.1 Build 7601, SP1). Since a few days the options of 'tasks' on the right, click on the menu of the taskbar icon disappeared. The rest is two (three times current running FF) lines: unpin and FF.
    I tried the solution proposed by without success. The browser.taskbar.lastgroupid keeps returning to this string "E7CF176E110C211B" as the set of users.
    I even uninstalled completely, including the folder in Program Files and my FF profile. None of the measures has helped.

    The highest browser.taskbar... has the same value after re-installation. The key containing this value is HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Mozilla\Firefox\TaskBarIDs, with two values "default = not defined" and "C:\\Program Files (x 86) \\Mozilla Firefox" = "E7CF176E110C211B."

    How can I return this feature?
    Thanks for the help

  • After the 24 Firefox update, Windows 7 64-bit breaks on reboot. The network in the taskbar icon is not ready (blue circle stopped).

    After 24 of Firefox update, Windows 7 breaks after the reboot. The network in the taskbar icon is not ready (blue circle on the wireless network icon). But I can't do much. I can't open the network and sharing Center (never opened). Even the Task Manager hangs when I click to show processes from all users. I have to do a system restore for a network working again. I never even launched Firefox.

    Wow... I finally have the solution. Windows updates have been applied at the same time I updated Firefox. Bluetooth driver is what broke (which is part of the Centrino wireless). I ended up installing the latest driver from Intel, Windows Update, and then update Firefox... and all is well.

    I thank very you much for all your help. Take care.

  • Showing reconnect to the clone of windows 7, windows get shrunk at ~ 480 height less the taskbar height and position change window

    Is there a way to prevent this dynamic adjustment of the windows height and position.

    We use Realtime Soft UltraMon. It adds a button to title bar of litle to move windows between monitors and duplicates the taskbar and Start Menu to other monitors. Many other features.

    The readjustment of the window was of ultramon. To fix it, we created a disconnect on and reconnect to the script.

    Direct orders are not running the reason for this policy setting. While echo test > c:\temp\test.txt does not, cmd /c echo test > done c:\temp\test.txt. However, cmd /c dir > c:\temp\dir.txt does not work. And environment variables are unable to expand.

    Another approach was to activate only signed powershell scripts and import my certificate to the computer Trusted Publishers store on the statue of gold of code signing. Disconnect then the commands to run and re - connect were:

    cmd /c powershell.exe - folder c:\temp\CloseUltraMon.ps1


    cmd /c powershell.exe - folder c:\temp\OpenUltraMon.ps1


    get-process"ultramon" - ea SilentlyContinue | Out-file "c:\temp\ultramon.status."

    & / Stop "c:\program files\ultramon\ultramon.exe".

  • Caution in the Email icon - little tried almost everything!

    After that a few months of perfect, e-mail and General love for my pre synchronization, a few days ago a small warning triangle icon / warning yellow appears at the top of the Inbox on my email account. I tried to 'click' on it, but annoyingly, there was no information. (Bad design, Palm!) After some research, I found some solutions and tried them all, but nothing helped. Here's what I've done so far:

    -Restart the phone

    -Remove and delete the account with and without reboot

    -Add the account with WiFi on and outside

    -Added the account thanks to the Contacts app (as Google mentioned)

    -Disabled the authentication of mail sent

    -Reset Google Captcha

    -Turned off the phone one night

    -Remove external e-mail in the Inbox

    -Turn off all other programs that may access the e-mail

    -... and a few other things I forget.

    Still no luck. I have one Google Apps account accessible via IMAP. Nothing has changed recently in my configuration. My inbox currently has 98 email - absolutely not excessive. Sometimes I can email to be downloaded into the Inbox. All other files (except 'Favorites') download fine without the warning icon. The folder Favorites downloads E-mail but shows the warning icon. No push email is received and frequently manually to update the Inbox does not download something again. That has now lasted for four days. It's painful.

    Any thoughts before I spend hours on the phone with Palm?

    Someone in another thread of message gave me the answer or: delete or move your Inbox of emails one by one until you find the offending message. Here is the original post:

    The man is a hero to all Americans who have suffered the dreaded, useless warning triangle.

  • How to configure the desktop or the taskbar icon/link to Firefox so 42 or more recent version of Firefox always opens in a 'new private window'?

    I use Linux on my Acer laptop. I want to use Mozilla Firefox version 42.0 or more recent in the 'new private window Mode"always. When I click on the Firefox icon on my desktop or the taskbar, I want Firefox to open in 'New private window' always; no exception. When I click on the tab button or a link, all new pages should always open 'Private window' mode. In addition, I want to know that I am in a private window with privacy mask showing. Your help or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you, Amos.

    Hi Amos, assuming you want to get more protection, monitoring, there are a few options:

    • You can customize your firefox shortcut on the desktop or the taskbar to open firefox directly in private browsing mode: right-click the shortcut "mozilla firefox", go to properties, and at the end of the target line that should hold them the way to the firefox program folder add " -private"
    • You can enable protection followed not only during private browsing, but in normal windows as hollow a 'hidden' preference: enter on: config in the address bar of firefox (confirmed the message information where it appears) and search for the preference named privacy.trackingprotection.enabled. Double-click it and change its value to true.
    • You can set firefox don't remember history in the menu > options > sign confidentiality in order to always run in private browsing mode. However you will not be able to open all normal windows or record the history and passwords if you have defined this mode: confidentiality, and-not-track browsing history settings
