  • What happened to the shortcut on the start menu in Windows?

    After the Muse on Windows 10 2015.2, I can no longer pin the program in my Start menu, which is the case until now, I always recorded. I can not even find the program by searching for, and it is not in the folder program files. To open the program, I had to do it directly from the Adobe cloud program, and I later opened by double just by clicking on one of the Muse files I was working with. I can still pin Muse to the taskbar, but I'd really rather in the start menu, I have try to keep the taskbar pretty clean and do not use Muse too often that the other programs that I keep there.

    In any case, this change in the installation by design is? Seems very counterintuitive not to be able to access it from the same location as other programs Adobe. I really have no idea where the executable file is still at the present time.

    Hi Brett,

    Thank you for pointing out this bug! The shortcut on the start menu should be back in our latest version of Muse, version 2015.2.1.21.

    Thank you


  • How to remove a shortcut from the start menu

    I have a problem with to unpin the shortcut on the start menu. When I click with the right button on the shortcut and select "Remove from this list", the shortcut is removed manually.

    But when I try to use the following script to remove the shortcut does not work.
    Name of the shortcut in the start menu: Sap Logon Pad.lnk

    Script used:
    Dim objShell filesystem, objFolder, objFolderItem, colVerbs
    Dim objVerb
    Set objShell = CreateObject
    set the file system = CreateObject ("script. FileSystemObject")
    Set objFolder = objShell.Namespace (file system. GetParentFolderName ("C:\Program Files\SAP\SapSetup\setup\SAL\saplgpad.s8l"))
    Set objFolderItem = objFolder.ParseName (file system. GetFileName ("C:\Program Files\SAP\SapSetup\setup\SAL\saplgpad.s8l"))
    Set colVerbs = objFolderItem.Verbs
    For each objVerb in colVerbs
    MsgBox objVerb
    If replace (, "&","" "") = objVerb.DoIt then "Remove from Start Menu"

    Please suggest if there is another option to solve this problem using the VB script or batch script or some commands.

  • some of my (links) shortcut in the start menu programs are "empty". How can I fix the problem? Ron

    Links to programs on the start menu appear as "empty" when I run the mouse over them.  I've recreated some of them, but it's not the biggest problem of why it happened in the first place.  Help, please.  Win XP Pro SP3 IE 8.0 Dell Dimension 2400.

  • Determine the target of the shortcut in the Start Menu

    I have shortcuts to folders in my Start Menu.  They seem to be of two different types, judging by their icons, although I don't know what circumstances lead to one type over the other.

    The 'good' type have icons that look like a single file.  I can pull up to its properties, the image of a folder appears with a small arrow in the lower left corner and there is a target field showing the trajectory of the target.

    The 'bad' type have icons that look like a single file with a preview of the content.  I can pull up the properties, the picture shown is always a file with preview and there isn't * no. * Target field showing the trajectory of the target.

    For both types, if I go down the shortcuts, the path in the address bar is not the true path, it's a false path that looks like it branches in the Start Menu (where the shortcut is) i.e. c:\Documents and Settings\Ma.F\Start Menu\TheShortCutName.  Two shortcuts are in folders on a network drive.

    1. How can I get the path of the target for the 'wrong' type of shortcuts?
    2. Is it possible to have the address field display the actual path instead of making it look like the folder is located in the Start Menu?

    My mistake.  Records that have not shortened * resident in the Start Menu.  They contain simply other shortcuts or folders of shortcuts.  Answer to the question #1.

    So, if I go down the shortcuts, the actual path of the target * is * displayed in the address bar.  Who responds to question #2.

    It doesn't seem to be a way to cancel a thread in this forum.  I'm sorry that this erroneous thread drag.

  • All program files and shortcuts from the "Start" menu disappeared

    I use Windows Vista Home Premium (SP2) (64-bit).  Two days back, I've updated my windows.  After restarting the PC, all program files and shortcuts in Start menu disappeared.  The shortcuts that I myself had added manually do not work.

    Have you tried to do the restore of the system in SafeMode as stated in my answer 1 to you?

    If it doesn't/does not work:

    If you do not want to repost in the Windows Update Forum (they are the specialists it for the best advice regarding your problem), make this disc Bootable startup repair and use it to do a system restore or uninstall the updates by using the method 2nd in my 1st reply:

    Download the ISO on the link provided and make a record of repair time it starts.

    Go to your Bios/Setup, or the Boot Menu at startup and change the Boot order to make the DVD/CD drive 1st in the boot order, then reboot with the disk in the drive.

    At the startup/power on you should see at the bottom of the screen either F2 or DELETE, go to Setup/Bios or F12 for the Boot Menu.

    When you have changed that, insert the Bootable disk you did in the drive and reboot.

    Link above shows what the process looks like and a manual, it load the repair options.

    NeoSmart containing the content of the Windows Vista DVD 'Recovery Centre', as we refer to him. It cannot be used to install or reinstall Windows Vista, and is just a Windows PE interface to recovering your PC. Technically, we could re-create this installation with downloadable media media freely from Microsoft (namely the Microsoft WAIK, several gigabyte download); but it is pretty darn decent of Microsoft to present Windows users who might not be able to create such a thing on their own.

    Read all the info on the website on how to create and use:

    ISO Burner:

    It's a very good Vista startup repair disk.

    You can do a system restart tool, system, etc it restore.

    It is NOT a disc of resettlement.

    And the 32-bit is what normally comes on a computer, unless 64-bit.

    See you soon.

  • Shortcut to the Start Menu to Word (ONLY) not link to recently open documents

    In the menu start, to the right of the WORD icon is an arrow (triangle).  In the past, a panel would open showing recent WORD documents that could be opened when the cursor is on this arrow.  Somehow I lost this feature.  Now, nothing happens when I hover on the WORD icon or the arrow.  I can only open a blank WORD document when I click on the WORD icon.

  • Rich Table: entity validation fails, but the user can change the record! : O

    I develop with JDeveloper and I have the following problem. I have a rich table editable according to entity/view with a line entity level validator method that checks the consistency of rank according to custom rules.
    I noticed that if the validator fails, the error message is displayed correctly, but it is possible to move to a different folder and this causes a lot of problems. I need avoid recording of variation when this validator fails. I know there is a way to block navigation on an element using clientListener and javascript, but it's a different need because I don't want the user to change the recording while the validator fails.
    How can I do?
    Thank you

    When you change a line, it is the currentRow on the iterator. You do not want any line to become the currentRow.
    I would go to this topic, in this way: substitute the selectionListener table and the listener to custom selection, check if the current currentRow (the one you are editing) isValid (EntityImpl::isValid).
    Proceed with the treatment of the selection event only if it is validated... You could even show an error or a warning message asking the user to provide valid data and even commit the line before choosing another.

  • How can I put shortcuts on the screen of Windows 8 start

    Using Xp, Vista and Win7, I could create a shortcut to a document so that I just had to click on it and it's there.  When I try to create a shortcut on the start of Win8 screen, no luck.  for example, I have a couple of MSWord docs that I access frequently, and I would put them on the start screen.  How can I do this?

    Thank you


    I had the question too, so after playing with it, I found that it could be done, but it's a pain.  Here's what I had to do:

    1. Go to %AppData%/Roaming/Microsoft/Windows/Start Menu Programs
    2. Create a shortcut to your file here.
    3. Go to your screen Star and pull up "all apps".
    4. You should see your shortcut somewhere in the area of "Apps".  Just Pin to start.
  • Two problems: 1: there is no Mozilla or Firefox folder in the start menu;. 2: when I said 4 FF to return by default, I had all the features of FF 3 instead. I reinstalled the browser, but that has not helped. Advice would be much appreciated.

    Two problems:

    1. when I said Firefox 4 to return to the default toolbar, he returned to v. 3. I reinstalled v. 4, but that did not help.

    2. I tried to open it in safe mode and discovered that there is no Mozilla or Firefox folder in my Start menu.

    I'm the home runnint Windows 7, 64-bit.


    The orange Firefox button appears when the menu bar is hidden. Turn off Bar Menu item in view > toolbars or from the context menu for toolbars.


    You can open the Firefox 4.0 SafeMode pressing the SHIFT key when you use the desktop Firefox or shortcut in the start menu.

    Or use the Help menu option, click restart with the disabled... modules while Firefox is running.

    To exit safe mode of Firefox, simply close Firefox and wait a few seconds before using the shortcut of Firefox to open it again.

  • How to display a hidden shortcut that is pinned to the Start Menu?


    How to display a hidden shortcut that is pinned to the Start Menu? This problem occurs very simply but does not quite simply. I've pinned a shortcut to the Start Menu before you uncheck the hidden attribute (knew I had) causing the shortcut to be recorded without being visible. When I tried to pin it again I was alerted to his presence by the fact that the second pinning made an extension of title (2). When I tried to change the title, I received the message that a link of this title was already present. I don't want to stay as a situation lasting this is why I need instructions on how to change it. I could just change the title of the second pinning something close but different but then I would have two shortcuts to the same program pinned on my Start Menu, without being able to be removed. I just * because if I can tell. I could uninstall the program and then run another program looking for broken shortcuts to 'fix' and then (I guess that means deletion when they can't be 'fixed') but I would like to avoid the extra steps for pedestrians to the advantage of learning a new technique of Windows if such jurisdiction exists. Could use this help as soon as POSSIBLE. Thank you.
