Control-Click doesn't work with multiple select lists-it opens a new ie page instead

Q: Control-Click doesn't work with multiple select lists-it opens a new ie page instead

If I try to use the Ctrl-Click action on web pages that allow you to select multiple items in a list box, a new ie session opens (to my home page) instead of allowing me to make multiple selections. This happens with ALL web pages that have multiple select boxes. It only happens on my desktop (XP with i.e 7), and not on other computers in my house with ie7.
- I tried disabling ALL active X controls and add-ins. Still didn't work.
Any ideas please? (It's maddening!!)

A: Control-Click doesn't work with multiple select lists-it opens a new ie page instead

One thing you may want to check is the control panel/accessibility options and make sure nothing is checked in there. Sometimes the accessibility settings for the keyboard will play havoc with what you think should be happening with keys.

The problem is I can't select multiple cells with control clicking them. I was wondering if Excel is glitching up, if I should reset its settings (how can I?) or what can I do?

Edit: It seems that this problem is also affecting Word, so I assume it's a problem with Office.

When right-clicking on files I notice that it only selects them (that is, brings up the context menu I'd expect for the thing I tried to click) when I actually click on the text of the filename or the preview/icon itself, and not just the surrounding area. For example, when I mouse over something in details view, it highlights the entire row, but if I right-click on the whitespace instead of the text itself, it just opens the context menu for the folder itself.

Anyone know how to change this behavior so the highlighted item's context menu shows up or is this just how 7 operates? It's certainly confusing user behavior...

A:Right-click to select doesn't seem to work right

Hello TrueDis, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Yes, in Windows 7 and Vista you would need to right click on the actual file or item that you want to see the context menu of. There is no way to change this that I am aware of.

Hi,
I recently noticed that my ctrl+a doesn't work. All the other ctrl combinations do! Ctrl+a doesnt allow me to "select all" while word processing or use this combination in games (first person shooters).

I have a logitech G15 and other keyboards and they all dont allow me to use ctrl+a. I have tried different versions of keyboard drivers for my G15 and without. I plugged the keyboard into another W7 and it works

Im assuming this is an issue with my OS now.

I know reinstalling windows is a option but want that to be the last resort as i only reformatted last month(i think it only started occurring when i reformatted)

EDIT: I have fixed my issue - it turns out my user account was corrupted, so I had to make a new one and copy all my documents folder over!

I've been experiencing this issue and at last I was able to solve it yesterday.

Right Click to Google Chrome exe file, select Properties. In the opened window
select Compatibility column, Set Compatibility Mode to Windows 7. Mine was set
to Windows XP SP2, that was the problem...

Help please and thanks, Mary

Here is my hijackthis text file.
 

A:Control/C Control/V control/alter/delete doesn't work

Mary, keyboard problems are not invariably software or malware-related. First things first - what OS are you talking about ? XP, Win 7, Win 8 or what? What type of keyboard is it? PS2, USB or wireless?

Disconnect it and reconnect it a few times, reboot and try again. Turn the keyboard upside down, placing one end on the edge of a thick book, and thump a few times on the back with your hand. Sweep the crud onto the carpet.....

Is it just a keyboard hardware problem, and if so which keys? http://windows.microsoft.com/en-gb/windows/keyboard-shortcuts#keyboard-shortcuts=windows-7 tells you a lot of key combinations with ctrl and shift and alt. Tell us if any or none work?

Open a document and try typing a bit of text. Do all the characters work?

If it appears the keyboard is faulty, can you borrow another to test?

Quite often, keyboard problems are down to wireless problems: and can often be solved by re-installing the keyboard driver.

I downloaded "Smart Popup Killer" and every since then everytime I click a link that has to open in a new window or a popup comes up, my internet freezes. I've tried deleting the program, still didn't fix it. Is there some kind of corruption in a file somewhere? Can someone please help me out?!
 

A:Internet Freezes when I click a page that opens in a new window

I'm not familiar with the program, but usually a program will have an 'uninstall' file which is reached through the AddRemove Programs in Control Panel. If you just delete a program, some files are left in your system.

Try to install the program again; then go through proper avenue to uninstall (not delete). If nothing is shown in AddRemove Programs, look in the Popup file for a file labeled 'unwise' or 'uninstall'

I have a strange problem that has been occurring since I very first installed Windows 7 x64 fresh. Whenever I click on the primary C drive in Explorer (or any other CD, card reader, or network mapped drive), sometimes 1 new window will open up, sometimes 2 new windows will open up, and sometimes 3 new windows will open up. The new windows usually, but not always, have an address bar. Explorer just seems to randomly open multiple windows at will.

I've been searching and searching online, trying various Tools->Folder Options as well as registry settings, but nothing seems to work. All I've found is a couple other forum posts with the same problem (random amount of multiple windows opening), but no resolutions.

This doesn't happen on any of my other Windows 7 x64 computers. The main difference I can think of is that this is the only machine I have with an SSD, but I can't see how that would effect all drives in Explorer.

Does anyone have any ideas what I can do to fix this? I would like no new windows at all to open up.

A:Explorer opens multiple windows when I double click a drive

Go to Control Panel - Mouse properties. Reduce the Mouse Double Click Speed and check. This could be one of the problem.

My problem isn't as cut and dried
I removed the update which causes this behaviour (912945, I believe) quite some time ago, and it worked for me. I also opted out of being informed about that update again.
Now suddenly the ActiveX prompt is back. I've Googled and searched the forum, and all I've come up with was to Uninstall 912945(It isn't installed) or run a hotfix (917425). When I run the hotfix, I get a prompt telling me that "The version of IE you have installed does not match the update you are trying to install" which tells me that I don't have 912945 installed.
I installed the latest updates recently after letting them pile up for a while, so one of them may be the cause. I don't really want to uninstall/reinstall one by one to see. But unless anyone has any ideas, it looks like thats what I'll have to do.
If anyone has the same problem and a solution or a suggestion, I would appreciate it.
Thanks

Here is the culprit
Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer for Windows XP (KB918899)

I'm having difficulty figuring out this persistent malware. I think it's likely that there are multiple issues.

I'm running Windows Vista.

The malware started off with "google redirect" symptoms, and disabling my Symantec software

Shortly following, I could no longer access the web. However, the malware itself would create an internet explorer popup every 5-10 minutes (not my default browser) that would go to "search sites" (none that I recognized....) and search for lewd topics. Running the taskmanager would show multiple instances of iexplore.exe running on my machine (one for each popup). The popups would have to be eliminated one by one using the task manager.

Trying to run a system restore, I discovered all restore points had been deleted.

I installed AVG antivirus and got it to run once which seemed to help the problem. However, upon restart, all issues were back and I could no longer run avg. Windows defender constantly pops up that a new trojan is attacking my machine.

At this point, I unplugged my internet connection and started using another machine. I had left my problematic computer alone for about a month.

Upon turning it on last night, each time I logged on, it gave me a warning that "Windows had encountered a critical error and will restart in one minute" and would restart. I tried running cmd (in that one minute) to intercept it, but the task manager would freeze if I tried to run it from there and explorer wo... Read more

In the meantime, a workaround is to right-click the link and then select "copy link location" in Firefox or "copy shortcut" in IE to get the full URL to paste into the address bar.

A:Middle click doesn't work

Hi, welcome to TSF

Has it ever worked or is this a new problem?

Try setting it to a different command, not 'middle click'. If the new setting doesn't work and the drivers and software are installed correctly, then it could be a faulty button. When you push the button does it feel like it's clicking or does it feel like it could be jammed?

What software are you trying to use the middle click in? Sometimes you have to set it in both the mouse settings and the program's options, like in games for example.

A:Right CLICK doesnt work on Control Panel and Windows Explorer

Hello rajarsi and welcome to TSF,

Please print out or copy this page to Notepad since you will not have any of browsers open while you are fixing this.. Make sure to work through the fixes in the exact order it is mentioned below. If there's anything that you don't understand, ask your question(s) before proceeding with the fixes. Again, you should not have any open browsers when you are following the procedures below.

Go to My Computer->Tools/View->Folder Options->View tab and make sure that 'Show hidden files and folders' (or 'Show all files') is enabled. Also make sure that 'Display the contents of system folders' is checked.

The Temp folders should be cleaned out periodically as installation programs and hijack programs leave a lot of junk there. Download CleanUp! (Alternate Link if main link doesn't work) and install it. Do not run it yet.

Download CWShredder at http://www.greyknight17.com/spy/CWShredder.exe and run it. Click on 'I Agree' button if you agree with it. Click on 'Fix' (it will automatically fix anything it finds for you) and OK. If it asks if you want to delete a certain random file, choose No and post that filename here.

Hello guys!

First post here , so, cheers to all!

Here's my problem:

I upgraded from Windows 7 Ultimate x64 to Windows 8 Pro x64 and then to 8.1 (too many installed programs for a clean install)

Now, when I right click a shortcut and do "Open" or "run as administrator" it does nothing. If I double click it, it works fine. Also, if I try to open a cmd from the bottom left context menu it also doesn't work. I've no problems though to do "open" or "run as administrator" on the actual executable files, the problem is the shortcuts. Obviously there's something in the registry that needs fixing, but I've no idea what. I've tried all the usuals, sfc scanning, ccleaner, etc, but no luck. I tried with shellexview to check what is registered where in the context menu, but I didn't find that very helpful either. The same happens in safe mode too.

Any idea guys? Plz help!

Thx!

Cheers!

Bill

EDIT:

I did assoc .lnk at cmd and returned "lnkfle" and then I did ftype lnkfile and returned that nothing is associated with this. Dunno if that's how it should be in 8, but that's the same winxp returns.

When double click on folders I get the pop up window with the message;
This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Please install a program or, if one is already installed, create an association in the Default Programs control panel.
But if I right click on the mousse and choose "open" the folder opens without problems.
The same problem occurs if in the place of "open" I choose "explore"
Could someone tell me what's going on, how can I fix this behavior?

would be great if the right click on my synaptic touchpad worked. Was fine until I moved from win7 to win 10.

A:right click on my synaptic touchpad doesn't work

If the touchpad works (not defective), and only started the behavior since moving to 10, then I would guess it is a problem with the touchpad driver.

It could be due to the wrong driver being installed, a corrupted driver installation, or a driver conflict.
Since the generic Windows 10 touchpad driver seems to work well with Synaptics hardware for most folks, we can start with a bad driver install.

The first thing to try is to go into Device Manager and uninstall the touchpad. If asked to remove the driver also, do so. Then restart the laptop and the touchpad will be reinstalled with the same driver. Test.

Otherwise, go to the laptop manufacturer's website and find the most recent driver offered there for your touchpad. Try and install that driver and test.

After running an anti-malware scan with Spyware Terminator and having it remove some spyware, I have lost all my right-click (context) menus, and I can't get them back unless I perform a System Restore operation (which, incidentally, also brings back the spyware ).

I?m using a Windows XP computer. When I click on anything on the desktop I get an hourglass that just hangs and everything on the desktop freezes. After several minutes I get an error message. Then I get a dialog box asking if I want to send an error report.

I can right click my trash bin and get the menu fine. I can right click an icon and move it fine, but it doesn't work if I want to delete an icon from the desktop or right click to get the menu. It also doesn't work if I want to delete a file or folder from My Documents.

I tested the right click with another mouse and got the same results, so at least I know it must be software related. I'm contemplating reinstalling the software, but I don't want to mess anything up. Is there an easier way to install only the software concerning the mouse?

I don't remember when the issue began, but it's been at least a week. Until this happened I wasn?t aware that I relied on the right click button so much.

Thank you for any assistance you may give

A:[SOLVED] The right click on my mouse doesn't work

Hi Artgirl,

Unplug the mouse and re-plug it again and see if that helps. You can also re-install the mouse drivers and see if that works for you too. I recommend going to the manufacturer's website of the mouse and downloading the latest drivers for your mouse device. Un-install the current drivers first before you install the latest mouse drivers. May I ask, what is the brand/model of your mouse device? Hope everything works out well for you.

This is Windows XP, Pentium processor.

When I turn the computer on, the LED light signifying that the keyboard is working turns on until Windows starts to load, and then it suddenly shuts off.

When the Desktop loads, it is a nightmare to use. I click on folders and files half a dozen times before they open. Then I move the mouse and it selects everything in its path, though neither side of the mouse is "clicked." Finally, when I try to write an email (or other text), it opens, the cursor blinks, but my typing has no effect.

HELP!

A:Mouse click either doesn't work or sticks

Hmmm........I would try to boot into safe mode and scan the computer for any viruses and spyware. Do boot into safe mode you will need to keep pressing F8 when you turn on your computer. Then a black screen with plenty selections comes up and choose "safe mode". Once you get to safe mode scan your computer for any viruses and spyware.

Did this happen all of a sudden? If the virus and spyware programs dont detect anything then I recommend performing a windows repair on that computer. You will need your windows xp CD to do this of course.

In case the USB keyboard would work fine, I would assume that the internal keyboard malfunctions? and the solution would be an simple replacement of faulty part.

Hello,

I'm trying to create a menu where there is initially one select box (Funding Group) displayed with approximately 10 options available depending on what's in the database table.

I want another text box (Program) to be displayed, but only where the program codes have a Funding Group that was selected in the first box BUT have no duplicate program codes (see below for explanation).

For instance, there are fund groups A0, B0, C0, etc. The program table in the database might contain some rows that look like this:
Code:
Fund_Group Prog_Code Prog_Descr
A0 101 Fred [so, prog code 101 has more than one fund]
A0 102 Ethel
B0 101 Fred [so, prog code 101 has more than one fund]
C0 203 Ricky
If the user selects Funding Groups A0 and B0, the Program box might initially contain this: [note the funding group and program code are concatenated in the value field --- I'm thinking this will help me determine which ones to add/remove]
Code:
value text
A0~101 101 - Fred
A0~102 102 - Ethel

Hi

Since upgrade to Windows 7 64 bit I can't turn the volume all the way down by using the volume control at the front of the notebook. Worked fine under Vista 32 bit.
The volume control still works but no matter how far I wind it to the left there is still sound coming from the speakers.

Any help appreciated.

Thanks

A:Tecra P5 - Volume control doesn’t work properly

As far as I know volume control in the past was mechanical but now it works on different way and it is controlled by specific tool/utility.
To be honest Tecra P5 is not known to me but obviously it is Australian notebook model and according to Australian support page this notebook model is not supported for Windows 7.

That doesn?t mean you cannot use it but this means there is not software package designed for Windows 7 that can be installed so I think there is no much you can do about it.

I know it is annoying but for volume control you can use Windows option placed in task bar.

Yesterday I reinstalled Windows 7 on my notebook PC. I had to use a Microsoft installation disk because unfortunately, serious errors resulted after I installed from the HP recovery program. Consequently the HP drivers that were installed automatically with the recovery program weren't installed on my system. I had to install several of them from the HP support site. I got everything to work except for the Touch volume control, or the Volume Scroll Zone as referred to by HP in the service guide. This is the device located just above the keyboard that increases or decreases speaker volume when you drag you finger on it. I installed the Quick Launch button driver but that only applied to the mouse and pointer touchpad. I looked at the devices listed in my startup configuration. I saw the synaptics pointing device and the HP quick launch buttons listed. So is the IDT PC audio driver.  What am I missing? Where I can I find it to activate the touch volume control?

I have a Dell Latitude D830 Laptop

I recently replaced my hard drive (sATA) with a fresh one, loaded with Windows Vista. Before even using anything in Vista, I immediately upgraded to Windows 7 Ultimate, without a hitch.

However, I seem to have lost the ability to select all using CTRL+a; it simply does nothing. Everything else works (ctrl+s, ctrl+x, ctrl+v, ctrl+c).

I cannot remember if it worked for the brief time I had Vista installed before upgrading to 7; it was a relatively short amount of time (like 20-30 minutes), so I don't know if I used CTRL+A then or not.

Any reasons why it won't work anymore, or how I can fix it?

Hi,

My laptop is currently running on windows XP Home Edition.

I have been facing numerous problems:

1) Right-click "Properties" on Desktop does not work. It doesn't bring up the window for the wallpaper/screensaver.
2) Disk Defragmenter cannot start.
3) Although I have deleted all the documents in the Recycle Bin, the icon on the desktop still shows that there are documents in the folder. When I re-click into the Recycle Bin folder and click "Empty Recycle Bin", the number of documents still remain the same. I cant seem to clear all these unwanted documents at all.

Any solution out there?

Pls help.

When I am left clicking with my mouse I have to click numerous times to get it to select the function I want. I use AutoCad Civil 3D and I have to click on commands and snaps several times to activate them. I have tried other mice and it does the same thing no matter which one I use. For example I will select the drop down for line command, and when I select the line type it selects the underlying command such as circle and not line, so I have to repeat the process several times until it selects the correct commands. It does the same thing on the internet browser when selecting a web address from the drop down. It just did it as I was typing this when I moved my cursor to edit a sentence and wanted to return to the original location of the cursor I had to click several times. It is not software specific. Our IT people have confirmed the software drivers are current and have not detected and viruses. I have also gone into the control panel to try different settings on the mouse with no success. This issue just started occuring in the last two months and appears to be getting progressively worse.

When you switch on I find that tapping F8 about once per second gets you to the Advanced Startup Options.

Windows 10 went wrong Again!

First I lost all my favorites, then my Computer experienced exceptions (what ever they are?) followed by random Crashes.

So I did a clean install using my ISO disc and tried to Install Page Plus X4 which was working fine before but it won't work now, even though I installed the latest patch.

I get told its an incompatible Programme, even though it worked OK before I did a clean install, with a note that says that Microsoft are looking for a Solution (you could have fooled me!) also I did the bit about using the Settings that worked on a Previous Programme but that didn't fix it either.

Also uninstalled and re installed the Programme but that didn't help either as did installing net framework.

Also when I get new emails, I am no longer getting advised of any new emails, so I have to keep checking my email box myself.

I looks like I may have to do yet another Clean Install.

I've tried turning off the Automatic Updates but that doesn't seem to work (maybe I'm doing it wrong, so how do I do that please)

Many Thanks

A:Page Plus X4 doesn't work after new update

Hi
1. Page Plus X4 crashes for me as well. Did you get the giveaway version recently? Win 7 compatibility doesn't work. The error isn't BEX so adding it as a DEP exception is unlikely to help. Win 10 compatibility isn't claimed, so uninstall alas.
2. No idea how you get advised of new emails, so can't advise. (I use POP peeper, freeware, which periodically scans my accounts and waves a little flag if sthg new and allows me to process mail quickly).
3. Favourites- in which browser?
4. You can't turn off Windows updates in Win 10 Home, you can opt for a scheduled restart in Pro or deferred, or you can kill Windows updates altogether manually. See:

I am hoping someone on this forum can help me. I have a Thinkpad X60s, about a year old and I am running XP. Randomly my computer becomes sluggish so I try closing programs. I then figure out that one program is frozen (come to think of it, that program may always be IE) and I can't close it. I then try to warm boot with ALT CONTROL DELETE but it doesn't work. In fact, instead of getting the task manager, my screen saver comes up without any icons on my desktop. I have no cursor and can't do anything but unplug or take out battery and manually crash the computer. It then will start normally though it takes longer for the icons to appear.

I regularly download both IBM and Windows updates, I defrag regularly, do virus scans etc using Norton 360. I also have run Think Pad Productivity Center maintenance tasks.

Other than that and the slugglishness the computer runs ok.

Any help out there? I am frustrated and IBM has not been able to help, except by telling me to change the hard drive or send it to them.
 

A:Freeze,alt control delete doesn't work, lose all icons

Yes I think this is a hard drive issue too. Check to see how much space you have left on it. Go to My computer and right-click on the C drive icon. Click Properties... Also, you might consider checking the hard drive with a utility like Seatools from Seagate. IBM notebook drives are noted for their high failure rates...

It doesn't make any difference if its a fresh install of XP Pro with nothing else installed except for my wireless card so I can connect to the net, or the current system I'm running now.

I was just wondering if anybody else has had this problem. I really don't expect any answers here because the guys who I could barley understand from Microsoft and have spent about 3.5 hrs with, had me renaming files and shutting this and shutting that off and on and nothing has worked.

They have told me that I'm the only person who has called with this kind of problem which I think is a bold face lie!

Hi,

I'm looking for a reccomendation on an inexpensive peice of networking equipment (even if I have to buy it used on ebay).

I pretty much just need it to have 2 fast ethernet ports, and the capability of having ACLs to apply to each interface. I just need to control traffic based on source address, destination address, and possibly source/dest port, and protocol type.

I would also prefer to be able to administer it over the network rather than directly connecting to it.

I know there are tons of models of cisco (and other) routers out there that will do this, but I hope I don't have to buy $500 worth of equipment.

I would prefer cisco equipment but if that's too expensive, I'll live with something else.

Hope someone can help!
