Document flip and taskbar

Hi, my document flip no longer works with vista, all it does is bring up a list of windows open, no longer the cool visual feature of each window, also when I hover my mouse over the open windows in the taskbar it no longer shows a little picture of the window, it just says the name of it, just like xp used to

Hey bro, ive had the exact same problem. it was working, but then stopped. i fixed mine by checking my colour settings.. it was on 16bit (medium) rather than 32bit.

to fix - desktop - right click - properties - display settings - dropdown box that says colours. i instantly got my doc flip back properly, and all the windows and bars etc are all looking correct again, transparency etc works again.

hope this helps :)

My screen does not flip 180 degrees when i turn the screen around


Computer users occasionally have a need to rotate, or "flip," a monitor display to be better able to read long documents or to view pictures. Because rotating a computer screen is such a basic function, modern operating systems (Windows XP and up) include hot keys and display options that enable the user to rotate the computer screen by 90, 180 and 270 degrees. Rotating the computer screen allows for more display options. For instance, when rotated 90 degrees, a 1680x1050 monitor becomes a 1050x1680 monitor, which provides more vertical pixels than a standard display.

Windows XP/Vista Monitor Orientation
Minimize any windows or programs to the taskbar. Click the desktop. Press "CTRL" + "ALT" at the same time. Press one of the arrow keys to flip the monitor orientation by 90, 180 or 270 degrees. The left arrow rotates the computer screen 90 degrees; the down arrow rotates the computer screen 180 degrees; the right arrow rotates the computer screen 270 degrees; the up arrow resets the monitor orientation. Rotate the computer screen in Windows Vista by opening the Control Panel, searching for "Tablet PC" and changing the "Orientation" drop box to the desired rotation. b> Windows 7 Monitor Orientation b> Click the Start menu at the lower-left hand part of the screen, and open the Control Panel. Select "Display," then click "Change display settings" from the left column. When using multiple monitors, select the monitor that you would like to rotate. Click the drop box next to the "Orientation:" option. Select the desired rotation and click "Apply." Click "Keep Changes" or "Revert," depending on preference. Click "Apply" in the Display Settings window. Click "OK" to finish.

Click on Start menu.

Type the following text into the Start Search box: Aero

Click on a search result listing under Control Panel group that named as the following:

Find and fix problems with transparency and other visual effects

An "Aero - Troubleshoot computer problems" wizard dialog will appear. Click on Next button.

The troubleshooting wizard will try to detect any problem by running a series of checks against various components required to make Aero works and running, such as video memory, Desktop Windows Manager (DWM) service, color depth, theme, power settings and etc. At the end of the analysis, the wizard will attempt to fix the issues related to Aero service and restart the Aero feature.

Ok I had the same problem and I found the fix, well at least for me. Right click on your desktop and click on personalize, then window color and appearance. Now make sure that you are set to use "windows vista aero" not windows vista basic. Once I did that it fixed the document flip. Hope this helps

No Taskbar


The taskbar is always running in Windows Vista. Unlike Windows XP, it can't be unlocked and hidden unless the 'auto-hide' feature is turned on. If 'auto-hide' is on, simply run your cursor along the bottom edge of the screen and the taskbar should pop-up.

To disable auto-hide, after moving your cursor to bring up the taskbar, right click the taskbar and click properties. Then under the Taskbar tab, uncheck auto-hide.

If auto-hide is off, it may indicate that explorer.exe is not running/has crashed. In order to restart explorer.exe you can either
1) Restart
2) Press CTRL+Shift+Escape, File -> New Task and then type in explorer.exe and run
