  • How can I add an outlook icon in my task bar 8 windows?

    Please someone told me how I can add the outlook icon on my task bar 8 windows. I can't access the full outlook account via the mail application. It looks completely different when connect you to the internet, so I would like to add the link to my taskbar. I managed a shortcut on my desktop. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I'll assume you want to say rather , Microsoft Office Outlook here.   :)

    1. Open Desktop IE10.

    2. connect you & go in your Inbox .

    3. left-click on the tab and (while keeping the left mouse button) drag the tab down on your taskbar, and then release the mouse button.

    (originally the icon as a standard Internet Explore 'e', but after a few seconds should change the icon of .)

    Note the useful task choices available when you right click on your new icon in the taskbar too.

    See also the video here (it says Windows 7, but the same methods):

  • On the task bar of Windows Explorer post work without creating multiple instances of explorer.exe.

    Hi, I tried the workaround solution where you enter "%SystemRoot%\explorer.exe: {20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}" in the target.  However, this doesn't seem to be a full working solution because it creates an instance of "explorer.exe" whenever you access.  I want a solution that allows me to open the 'Workstation' of the taskbar that creates instances fallacious "explorer.exe" (it should stay onlya singleinstance of explorer.exe).

    BTW, no, I don't want to pin 'my computer' icon so I have to hover over windows Explorer and then proceed to my computer.  I want the default location in Windows Explorer my computer and no libraries (which had the idea to do this? this person is a fool, because the majority of people never use libraries)


    Another alternative - using a VBScript script to launch my folder on the computer.

    Copy these lines into Notepad and save the file as "MyComputer.vbs".

    Set objShell = CreateObject
    objShell.ShellExecute "shell: MyComputerFolder ', ' ', ' ', 'open', 1

    Create a shortcut to the script including the full path, as below:

    C:\Windows\System32\wscript.exe "D:\MyScripts\MyComp.vbs."

    Change the shortcut icon, and then PIN to the taskbar.

    How is it a better alternative?

    The script takes 3K of memory (max) and duly ends after launching the folder desktop. It's better than the original situation where each instance explorer.exe taking 20 + K of memory and not end automatically.

    I loaded a new mozilla firefox after problems with the old, after that I loaded a new menu bar is all black and none of my old favourites are there? It of like the bottom of the screen is black and the options (file editing history bookmarks tools and support) are also black.


    Thanks for the reply, Yes when I disable hardware acceleration, the problem goes away.

    If I think that I put the finger on the problem of new video drivers, probably the intel hd 3000 or ATI's new drivers.

    There is this problem when I have the BIOS for the graphics card the 'dynamic' value, same problem with the latest Kazaa Codecs Pack. with this on the dynamics, there is a strange green frame at the beginning of the .mkv (DXVA) movies, if I have the value fixed, it seems normal.

    and what about the FF issue, IE9 is also same behavior with black, in this case, black menus on the home page of search engines...

    Thanks anyway

    If you are not able to uninstall Skype in the usual manner of programs and features (Control Panel), you can try an uninstall program of third parties such as detailed below.

    Download and install the free version of Revo Uninstaller from the link below.

    Run revo and use it to uninstall Skype. Right-click on the program icon and select uninstall - it will try initially to lauch that Skypes own routine that may fail if some files have been deleted, but simply continue the uninstall process. During the rest of the procedure, that you may be asked to remove the registry entries, simply select all and then click on remove. Do the same for all the remnants of files and folders. Once uninstallation is completed, restart the laptop.

    When windows has fully charged, try to reinstall Cyberlink YouCam.
