Control Panel And Explorer Horribly Broken.

If I RDP from Yoga2 at full res into my machine at work (24" monitor running 1920x1080) I can't read/use anything - windows & text are way too small. It is more than just technology, it is the philosophy. But it works fine otherwise. Quite a few of the apps I use have interfaces which actually become totally unusable with scaling turned on. check over here

IE 6 went so long without any updates it became a cesspool for spyware, malware, and abusive advertisements. So I have to set everything to the largest setting in the scaling panel to see stuff on laptop screen, and it makes everything huge on the external monitor.Nut I've seen Also weirdly, I've found that more apps tend to misbehave when scaling is set to 125% rather than 150% or 200%. So it's really GTK and Qt that got it right.

Oh and then you think you have it good then you go and remote desktop into another machine and is tiny again.Karl prosserWednesday, 15 January 2014 19:47:15 UTCI recently got a I guess until they update the apps I am stuck working on the older Dell laptop.http://i.imgur.com/CSeILzo.jpgChris WoodruffWednesday, 15 January 2014 14:19:30 UTCWindows is to blame for these scaling problems. Symptoms could be numerous, from not being able to download content from the Web to not being able to launch programs that require admin privileges. The web is a constantly changing and evolving standard separate from Microsoft or any specific operating system, as such implementing an application for just one specific browser and version with no

When I plugged it in to set it up with my computer, it gave me the error message "USB device not recognized. ". Install a program or, in case an installed program already exists, create an association in Control Panel's Default Programs.Yeah. Also, OEMs have a similar allergy to shipping multiple applications that do the same thing, because they must spend money providing "support" for both. When support for XP ended, I made the arduous and perilous journey toward and eventually to Windows 8.1.

Now see if you are able to open Control Panel now. 5] Check and set the File Association for Control Panel files and see if it helps. I just don't get it. http://www.firebirdfaq.org/faq360/ The fact that there is another definition in software is simply WRONG.

I prefer to have the screensaver active during long conversations. Some windows have it.

But if it is some system .cpl file, then read on. 4] Run sfc /scannow to start the System File Checker. I am fighting the "USB device not recognized" and have done about everything possible, including installing another usb card! It works beautifully, it's simple and elegant. http://libraryonlineweb.com/control-panel/control-panel-system-crashes-windows-explorer.php Only users with topic management privileges can see it.

See this post if Change PC Settings does not open in Windows 8.1 and this one if Control Panel window is blank. Netscape was trying to get itself bundled with third party software and ISP software, but Microsoft had infinitely more influence and power, and chose to leverage all of it.

What's your fucking point? Visual Studio 2010 and 2012 code editors look good enough with some variation on the documentation pages, except for the binary editor, which I use heavily ... Touchpad doesn't work, cursor disappears. Icons of control panel applets that use CPL_NEWINQUIRE and that are built as x86 binaries do not show the correct icons anymore. -- Stefan Kuhr Monday, December 27, 2010 4:12

While Windows 8.1 Update 1 goes some way to addressing the concerns of mouse users, several people still claim that they find the Charms Bar a hindrance. Would it have been so hard to make it resizeable, and perhaps even have a more sensible default size? Guest last edited by @liserdarts @dhromed said:All windows resizable. Read More .

It keeps blocking them to half of the width of the window. If something does not, then it means that, that particular .cpl file has been corrupted or damaged. WPF has all the chances in the world to be good at this, but at the point of taking blood, sweat and tears to make ordinary images not be blurry or If you use the built-in (near-) real-time backup tool, you'll see why.

What other problems have you experienced? HP Window8 Reply Rob Routledge February 25, 2015 at 2:53 pm Have you selected the correct sign-in option? for applets that rely on CPL_INQUIRE only, not on CPL_NEWINQUIRE). Edit: The re-registration with the keys didn't work, same message.

It looks like if the remote screen is 12pt font the big screen shows 6 point. Not sure whether this is a standard Windows feature or something the graphics drivers that came with the Dell do.Both of these seem to have pretty trivial workarounds so maybe Microsoft Created by Anand Khanse. But since they never reviewed the entire OS, they never actually rolled-out this feature in a holistic manner...
