Is it possible to have Windows Explorer always display the same columns that I specify instead of changing them based on the contents of the folder?

I updated to Windows 1O  from Windows 8.1.  I have updated the drivers.  The monitor displays multi-color thin lines in columns.  The lines flicker randomly.  The monitor is a HP 2711x 27-inch Diagonal LED Monitor (XP600A).  It does not appear there is a specific monitor driver for Windows 10.  Any suggestions on how to resove this issue?

In Windows Explorer under XP, all file types had the same basic set of columns... File name/date modified/file type/size. This is mostly true with Windows 7, but I notice that with certain file types such as mp3s, wavs and jpegs, Microsoft have tried to be clever and choose columns more appropriate to the file type. So mp3s now default to name/#/title/contributing artist/album.

My question is: are these defaults user accessible?

I'm a photographer and I have about 100 folders containing jpegs. I'd like to change the columns currently shown, but I don't want to have to change 100 folders individually.....

Is it possible to make the columns I choose to view stay put in Windows 7 Windows Explorer? I've tried turning the library view off. I still get a narrow view in the right pane showing the libraries and a huge preview pane. I want to expand the first column to show my selections, e.g. file type, date, etc., then stay put. I drag the little line out each time expanding my file view/details pane, but each time it pops back to the narrow library view. Thanks in advance.

Folder header Context menu Modification
I want to know how to modify and add to the default column details context menu in vista.
Open a folder.
Right click on the column headers and you get a context menu.
This menu contains: 'type, size, authors, tags and date modified.

1. What is the correct name of this context menu ?
2. Where do I find it in the registry ?
3. How do I modify it to include "Date Created" ?

In Windows Explorer in Windows 7 I like to use the Details view. I have set of columns/headings that I prefer to use. The problem is I would like to set these columns up and have them be the default for every folder I open. As it is now every folder I open I have to customize the columns again. They stay for that folder but every new folder requires me to customize. Is there a default option so that I can set what I want and have it apply to every folder?

I just installed Windows 7 a few days ago. Prior to this I had XP on the machine that 7 is now on. I did not use Explorer in XP I used a different file manager. I did this mainly for the split view. Now that 7 as the snap feature getting two panes is easy with Explorer so I am going to give it a try for a while. Thanks.

This happened for many years until a few days ago:
In Windows Explorer (in Windows 7), when I click on a folder on the left side of the screen, four columns are displayed on the right side of the screen: Name, Date modified, Size, Type; and the scroll bar is on the far right side of the screen. All is good.

Now when I click on a folder on the left side of the screen, the same four columns are displayed on the right side of the screen, but the scroll bar on the right side of the screen has shifted far to the left so that only some of the characters of the Name field are displayed; the rest of the name and the other three columns are hidden. I can move the scroll bar to the far right side of the screen (where it used to be), but the next time I open Windows Explorer, the scroll bar has shifted to the left side of the screen again, covering up columns' displays, so I have to manually move the scroll bar to the far right side of the screen again.

How do I get the scroll bar to stay on the far right side of the screen like it used to?
And why did it change? Did I do something inadvertently?

I want to include "length" in the Windows Explorer file folders for Music since I need this to select the correct length of music for video editing/post production. I added "length" from the menu, but on returning later it was gone and what appears to be the default setting was back. I had also removed a column at the same time, but it returned when I revisited. The question? I need to know where to change the default settings for the columns and how to ensure that changes I make from the menu remain saved. I have Windows Vista Home Premium 64bit as my OS if that helps. I'm new to the Forum so I hope I have submitted this correctly.

Hello all, I hope you had a great xmas/family time

I had been having plenty of "not responding" apps and windows, so I did some registry clean thing online.

Im not sure that caused the second problem, but its really weird and Ive never seen it before, in "details view", there is only an icon for each file/folder, but no name, no columns of any kind, just blank. If I RH mouse click where the column name would be, I see a blank where there would be a list of columns to add or remove. Then when I choose "More..." there is NOTHING in the list of potential other columns!

The weirdest part, this only happens sometimes / to certain folders, I am not sure which and I will keep a diary now... but I would love to sort it out but dont know where to start.

In Windows Explorer, Detail View, is there a way to remove/disable the additional columns? (ie: Track, Artist, length, etc) I'm a simple person, and only want the main columns displayed, (Size, Type, Date) and Windows 7 seems to ignore me when i change the views. Even the "Reset All", and "Apply to All" seem to be ignored after a day later.

In XP your could remove them from RegEdit under HKCR\SystemFileAssociations and deleting the "Audio", "Video", and "Images" keys, and Explorer would 'forget' how to handle them, and details view would remain the same, but Win7 doesn't seem to respond to this either.

ANYONE that recognizes these symptons please help me IDENTIFY this issue!

I plugged a friends Seagate Expansion drive (SRD00F1) into my machine's usb port, Windows Vista started to load the drivers and then says success. I went to My Computer and the machine can't see the drive. After this I started to see the following occurring:

1) Explorer shows no filenames or folder names. If I click on the file to rename, the name is there, but when I close that, the name disappears.
2) All the normal column names in Explorer details view are gone, "Author" is the only one showing. All of the common ones are unavailable when I try to choose details by right clicking the column header, Filename, Size, Date Created/Accessed/Modified etc...
3) Many windows won't open, specifically Control Panel windows like "Backup and Restore Center", System, regedit.exe.
4) The "Start Search" feature of the Start Bar returns nothing. I found out later, No searches work.
5) In My computer the sizes of the drives and free space are in bytes, not KB or MB.

A few months ago, my folders in windows explorer started having this problem where the icons of the files inside no longer appeared. This only occurred after a windows update, but I haven't been able to identify which one. I've discovered that restarting the laptop fixes the problem, but only for around half an hour. Running CCleaner also disrupts the folders. It applies to all personal folders. See attached picture.

The folders 'Other I' and 'Other II' are how they should look. The other four folders are displaying incorrectly.

I'm on Win 7 Ultimate x64.

I just upgraded to a 4K monitor, and I've read on some issues related high DPI displays, and this might be one of them. I've set the default magnification to 150% in my Windows 7 display settings. And for the most part things look ok. But I noticed some strange behavior within file explorer.

Here's an image for reference
You can see all that unnecessary extra space in the "Size" and "Date Modified" column. So naturally I try to drag the column width to make it smaller. But it wouldn't cooperate! If I try to make the Size column smaller, Explore jerks around and suddenly makes either the "Name" or "Date Modified" column bigger. Same if I try make one of the other columns smaller.

I've tried the Right click options on the columns: "Size Column to fit" and "Size all columns to fit". No good. It would still give me a bunch of unnecessary space in all columns.

This issue didn't happen on my old 1080p monitor. I can resize columns as I wished and they would behave.

Anyone have any idea what's happening and how to solve this?

2. At the top left click the view tab and select(check) "Hidden Items.
3. Go to C:\Users\(User Name)\AppData\Local
4. Right click on IconCache.db and click on Delete.
5. Click on Yes to confirm the deletion.
NOTE: This deletes the file to the Recycle Bin. It is safe to empty the Recycle Bin when finished.

6. Close the window.

7. Empty the Recycle Bin.

8. Restart the computer.

9. When you go back, you will notice the Size of the IconCache.db file is smaller, and the Date Modified is now the current date. (See screenshot below)
NOTE: If for some reason IconCache.db is not there or the size has not changed much, then just restart the computer again. You may need to restart a couple of times in some cases.

3. i had called charter and the man said go to then i typed in internet explorer and clicked on fix internet explorer (recommended). after that my computer was scanned and i clicked on fix and the program couldn't fix it because i have to pay inorder to fix the problems on my computer. so i don't want to pay for it thats why i'm writing tech support to see if there is another way i can fix internet explorer.

4. when i log on internet explorer i get this message saying the page cannot be displayed, but i am using mozilla firefox and i'm not getting that error on there. also, i'm using paltalk and i cannot view people profiles on there because it's saying action canceled Internet Explorer was unable to link to the Web page you requested. The page might be temporarily unavailable. i don't understand what internet explorer have to do with me trying to view people profiles on paltalk and why i can't view the profiles threw mozilla firefox if that make sense. i've been having this problem for 3 days after i had got this virus called av security suite, but i had got rid of the virus, but i don't know if that had something to do with my internet explorer not coming up.

A:[SOLVED] the page cannot be displayed on my internet explorer

Sad to know that okay you can try this method.

Download the program (LSPfix & Winsockfix) and run it. It should restore the LSP Problems which has been caused by the removal of Spyware etc. I had a similar problem caused by Antivirus software sometime back.

Try downloading LSPfix and run it

if it doesn't work download 'Winsockfix' and run it.

Hope this helps.

Vista introduced the Favorites panel of "shortcuts" in the upper-left corner of the Explorer window. I *loved* this feature and used it constantly.

Win7's Explorer is kind of similar, but there are several things about it I don't like. Is there any way to fix these?

* In Vista the shortcuts were in a separate pane, so they were always visible. In Win7 there is one pane on the left, and the Favorites shortcuts are generally scrolled off the screen. Is there any way to split the left pane into two panes so the Favorites are always visible?

* The Win7 left pane includes the user's directory. That's fine, but it always insists on expanding the user directory, which means there about 25 lines in that pane that I generally don't care about. I use the shortcuts at the top and the actual disk paths at the bottom. Can I remove the user directory from that pane, or at least have it closed by default? And while I'm at it, can the Libraries be closed by default too? ((Ah -- I just discovered I can remove the user folder by choosing Organize -> Folder and Search options, unselect Navigation Pane -> Show all folders. Any other similar suggestions e.g. for the Libraries?))

A:[SOLVED] Internet Explorer 8 - page cannot be displayed

Try enabling compatibility mode. It is the broken page icon next to the refresh button on the toolbar. Here?s a good resource from the IEBlog that talks about compatibility mode in detail if you?d like to learn more:

If that doesn?t work, run IE in No Add-ons Mode. Go to Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> Internet Explorer (No Add-ons) - If this fixes the issue, then go to Tools -> Manage Add-ons and enable the add-ons one by one to find which one was causing the problem.

You can also try resetting Internet Explorer's settings by going to Tools > Internet Options and then the "Advanced" tab, and click "Reset..."

If you?re still not having any luck, I recommend you reinstall IE8 on your system.

I hope this solves your issue!

I started out with the two previous posts about macros (post 1, post 2) that move rows into columns, but I'm having a little trouble getting it to work for what I need. First, I'm trying to do a data merge into Word, but in order to get the data merge to work/look the way I want it to, I need the XLS data to be in columns.

I'm attaching an example file that has one worksheet of the sample data (though my "real" data has about 300 rows) and the other worksheet is an example of the outcome I need.

Is there anyway I can do what I need? Exporting into another file or another worksheet within this file would be fine.

Thanks in advance.

Please post your OS and ipconfig /all results here for the computer that works and the one that doesn't. You can easily do this by:

If winxp, 2k or NT:
1. Go to a command prompt and type: ipconfig /all > ipconfig.txt
2. open ipconfig.txt (with notepad) and copy all then paste to a reply to this message.
3. repeat for each system.

If you are using win98 or, gasp, win95 then the command is winipcfg and you will have to copy down that info and type into a reply.

I have been working on a project for a few weeks and I could really use some help. I'm attaching a dummy file (example1) that is an example of how my XLS comes to me each month.

I need a macro that leaves me with the second file (example2). If the macro could just grab the Student name, then put the following info for each student all on 1 row, that would be perfect:

Child's Name | Date In | Time In | Rounded | Time Out | Rounded

Sometimes for some reason there is a student with a (Cont) after their name. I need that row deleted and just pull the times up onto the same row as other times. The example2 file might make sense.

Here are the steps I am doing manually that I hope a macro could do for me!
Un-merge cells: B10
Un-merge any cells with a child's name such as Doe, Jane
Delete any row with a childs name that has (Cont) after it such as Doe, Jane (Cont)
Delete rows: 1-9
Delete columns: A, C, F, H, I, J, M, N, O, and P
Manually move all info up to one row per student
Delete all empty rows below
See example2 as the completed file but I only moved a few of the rows per student for the sake of time.

Is there any way to do all of this with a macro?

It is driving me nuts that everytime I create a new folder that the Default layout has these columns showing up:

Name / Date Modified / Type / Size

Obviously this layout must be set SOMEWHERE.

I know that I can go to Organize / Folder and Search options / View / Apply to folders . . . but the problem is that once I have it set, and I add a new folder -- that New folder goes back to this (Name / Date Modified / Type / Size) layout.

How the heck do I stop it from doing that?

The ONLY THING I WANT is: Name / Size

I'm using Windows Media Player 12 on Windows 7 and most of the time (well, some of the time) it is reasonably stable. However, I've just added quite a number of new songs to my favourite listing and it just will not sort and save the Contributing Artist column no matter which route I take to do this. I've tried to delete the Album column and then sort the Contributing Artist column but as soon as I close Windows Media Player, it reverts to sorting that again. The option to save this format isn't there before I close down. I'm so frustrated with this. I've also attempted to manually sort the Contributing Artist column (there are nearly 500 songs) but it gets itself into such a mess by not always dropping the title where I want, but by reverting to where it started or part way up or down the column.
I've got to the stage now where I'm seriously thinking about trying another type of media player, but I don't have the confidence in case I lose all my favourite music. I hope somebody can help please.

Word - format interaction glitch w/columns, color display background

I am trying to figure out how to change the color of a Windows XP (service pack 2) window for 1 Word document only.

I am doing a tri-fold brochure for a client. Normally, on my computer, I have changed display/appearance settings so that I have a cool kind of rose color for for my windows.

(As you may know, if you don't want your Windows "windows" to have a standard white background, you can go into cntl panel/display/appearances/advanced and change the color of a "window" to one of the preset, or a custom color.)

Changing the custom settings back and forth is tricky, and I often "lose" my custom color settings. Thus, I don't want to have to change them if I can avoid it.

Therefore, when I am going to attach a formal email, I highlight the doc and choose format/background and change the color to a "professional" white before sending it. That way I retain my default color custom window settings.

However, in this case, with the columns etc. set for the brochure, as soon as I change the color the columns disappear! I know there must be a way to change the color of the window (display, background, or otherwise) just for one doc, without doing the universal "display" change for all windows as per above.

Again, the problem is that when I take the basic brochure and use "background" to change the background from my custom pink to ... Read more

I installed some windows 8 updates on Sunday, 12/2. Prior to these updates, IE was working perfectly. Now I get this error: "This page can't be displayed" when launching IE. Also, when launching IE via the new interface, it jumps to the desktop, launches IE and I get the "This page can't be displayed" error. So the new browser interface does not work now.

I rolled back to a disk image prior to these updates and launched IE via the new interface and I get the new browser. I exited by pressing the Windows key. I exited to the desktop and launched IE off the toolbar. It worked once and only once. So now I get this error: "This page can't be displayed" Both Firefox and Chrome work perfectly.

Now I am amazed that there are such a number of reports on the internet regarding this matter and there is no solution. I have tried everything there is to try as suggested on this forum.

So because I am developing some software and have to verify workability in all three browsers, I am going to delete this piece of junk OS and go back to Windows 7. This so-called upgrade has cost me a lot of time and money. Goodbye Windows 8.

Hello all,
Bluestacks is an android emulator available for running android apps on PC. I installed it on my windows 10 PC. For the first few hours all notifications coming from the apps in Bluestacks would show up as messages on my notification tab, For ex, if i get a message on whatsapp, it would show that i have received a new notification from so and so.

But suddenly all notifications stopped coming from Bluestacks completely. The other metro apps still show notifications but they are delayed. I have reinstalled bluestacks and also gone through the notification settings of windows. All seems to be well.

PS: All had worked perfectly fine with win 8.1. This problem started only when I installed win 10 (64 bit).

Hi, I'm new to the seven forums . I've got Windows 7 dual booted with vista, but the boot manager is not being displayed, for me to select which version of Windows I want to boot up. I have got both Windows 7 & Vista on seperate Hard drives. Does anyone have any idea, how I can enable the boot manager selection screen (when my computer boots up), so I can either boot Vista or Windows 7. Currently, I can only boot Windows 7.

If this helps, I've had vista installed first and I've only just installed Windows 7 today. Any help will be appreicated.

A:Windows Boot Manager not being displayed

Hello Win7fab, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Strange, if you install Windows 7 with the Vista drive still connected, then it should have had this for you by default.

Double check to make sure that you have the Time to Display the List of Operating Systems at Boot box checked with how long you want to wait to have to select a OS at boot. Be sure to check that both Vista and Windows 7 is listed as being available to select from as well.

Default Operating System - Change Default Boot OS

If you do not have both of them listed there or at boot, then you can run a Startup Repair to add it.

Hope this helps,

The question is : Why buttons are displayed in xp but hidden in windows 7?
The code that I use for the buttons is createwindow. The buttons are child control.

I run win32 program on windows 7 64 bit.
The program is running prefect on win xp.
On win7 the buttons are hidden and if I click the button position, it is flashing for a mili sec.
So the buttons are created and responding but hidden behind the parent window.

The code that I use is : CreateWindow (TEXT("button"), ctrlText, WS_CHILD | WS_VISIBLE | BS_PUSHBUTTON | BS_BITMAP, 250, 110, 100, 25, hwnd,(HMENU)ctrlID, hInstance, NULL);

I don't know how to solve this problem. Tried to change the style, use createwindowex instead of createwindow, call InitCommonControls but failed to solve the problem.

Thank you,

A:Why buttons are displayed in xp but hidden in windows 7?

In Remarks section for CreateWindow I see:

If the created window is a child window, its default position is at the bottom of the Z-order. If the created window is a top-level window, its default position is at the top of the Z-order (but beneath all topmost windows unless the created window is itself topmost).

To me that implies you have to do something like calling SetForegroundWindow on the handle. Maybe they changed the API since XP.

I have a fair bit of japanese music in my library and some of the songs which are just written in kanji are displayed as rectangles. As I have just found out from writing this, copying and pasting these into a browser results in them looking correct like this -> &#12469;&#12452;&#12463;&#12523; (Cycle).

So basically in explorer and media player 12 japanese characters are not displayed correctly but in my browser (google chrome) they are. Anyone know how to fix this?

Hi All,
Okay so I have windows 7 32 bit with IE-11 and get the "Page cannot be displayed" error. This error only occurs with IE-11 and does not happen with Google Chrome. For example if I go to Go Solar California and the bottom right hand corner is a "CSI Consumer Warning link" that takes you to another page with a PDF file to view. In Chrome it will display without any problems. In IE-11 I get the "page cannot be displayed" error message. I do not have any add-ons enabled, have reset IE-11. Any ideas? Yes I did look through the other post for Windows 7 64 bit.

Thanks, Ed

Hi! Just today I noticed the following text on my wallpaper:

Windows 7
Build 7601
This copy of Windows is not genuine

However, this is a wrong message since I've never even formatted my laptop, not even once. This is the original copy, that was pre-loaded when I bought this laptop.
So now...How do i get rid of this message? especially since my windows is genuine...and it updates regularly itself (automatic). Thanks!

A:Windows not genuine: Wrongly Displayed

That should not be happening, it appears the Licensing Store may be corrupt or unreadable, have you done any recent malware removal or used any 3 party file clean up programs?

You could try contacting the MS activation center near you do the following>
Click Start and in the Search box type slui.exe 4, hit Enter. Select an activation center near you, call, speak with a real person and explain what happened.

Exakt same problem as this guy:

But I couldnt write in that thread. It was closed for some reason.

A:Japanese characters not displayed in Windows 7

Why would you write in someone else's thread, anyway?

Do you have East Asian language support turned on in Control Panel? Have you tried installing tha Japanese language pack (should not be needed just to display Japanese)?

Do you see Japanese characters in my signature?

Hi, go to start then run and type firewall.cpl and that will display your firewall. if you could display your firewall before like yesturday or last week then you could try a system restore. go to start then, all programs, accessories, system tools and system restore. choose the option to restore pc and pick a date.

also scan your pc full scan to make sure you don't have malware as malware can also do this.

hope it helped.

I have a Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit OS. I am trying to run a setup file that requires it to be compatible with Windows 7. But when I open properties and enter the compatibility tab, and see setting for all users, I have only Windows Vista as an option. The Windows 7 option is not displayed. I checked with other programs and it is the same. I am logged in as administrator. Any ideas?

I have an infected Windows XP SP2 machine that I've cleaned with Super AntiSpyware, CC Cleaner, Windows Defender and Trend Micro Internet Security Pro. Things are running better but I also had to disable an option in msconfig that was called spckrhfshdw. It was causing a bunch of fake "you've got an infected file" messages.Now the machine is operational, but I cannot access Windows Updates with Internet Explorer. I've upgraded to IE 8 and still no luck. There are also issues with something redirecting queries/searches that include "" in the search. This happens with both IE as well as Firefox.I'm looking for some suggestions on where to go next with this.
