Question about Dell Vostro 1700 Notebook

1 Answer

New browser windows open to the right of the previous one.

How can I get new windows to open at the left side of the screen? I have XP Home, IE7, when I click the shortcut icon for IE next to the Start button, each new window opens a little to the right of the previous one and I have to slide it to the left so I can see Task Manager, on the right of my wide screen.

How can I pin the new window to the left edge of the screen?

    Thanks, I use Tabs now, but I still want the new windows pinned to the left side.

    I usually have 5 or 6 windows open, with several Tabs in each window

Instead of opening a new IE browser for each site, try using the Tabs at the top (blank square next to the Website title). (see below)
You can also Right-Click on links on web pages and select "Open Link in New Tab". This should also help your computer run better as opening new browser windows uses more memory.

There used to be boxes top left side of my screen, File - Edit - Favourites etc. These enabled me to copy, cut & paste etc but they are now only available while using word. How can I reinstate for


If you are using Windows XP or Vista try clicking on the Tools at the top right of the browser. Click Tools, then click Toolbars, then click Menu Bar for it to remain there each time you open the browser.

If you are using Windows 7 press and hold the ALT key then release it. You will see the Menu Bar pop up near the top of the browser. Click View, then Toolbars, then Menu Bar and it will remain there each time you open the browser.

Favorites center doesn't stay open


Open IE and click on Favorites. When it opens, look for an icon in the upper right corner of the frame. Click on the icon, small green arrow pointing left, to 'pin' the window open.

Good luck and let me know how it works for you.

How can I get new windows to open at the left side of the screen?


This is the default behavior for windows when opening a new window when another instance of the application is already running (if multiple instances are allowd to run). I have never seen any kind of information or registry hacks that can override this behavior. If you are just looking at keeping Task Manager visible, you can always use the Options menu in Task Manager and check the Always on Top option. Any new windows opened will appear under the Task Manager.

Internet explorer canot display web page? ---winxp pro/ desktop computor


I found lots of problem with Ie7,what I personal do is
1.I have a second option for my Browser, that is I install mozilla
firefox.I use it for my default browser.You can download it here
http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/

2.I downgrade my IE7 to IE6 by going to ADD/Remove program
and uninstall IE7.After that your IE7 will become IE6
** Windows default is IE6,if you uninstall IE7,your system will become IE6 Automatically.

Best is to try the first step,I think this will help to solve your problem.
Takecare.
