My scoll bar is not showing on my main screen. How do I adjust to have it fit?


Kim Drader,

Below are steps to resolve your scroll bar issue.

Instructions

  • Restart your computer Sometimes, a simple restart can bring back the scroll bar to its original form.

  • Right-click anywhere on your desktopicon1.png. Click on "Properties" if you are using Windows XP. Select "Personalize" if you use Windows Vista or Windows 7 and click on "Windows Color and Appearance." Then click on "Open classic appearance properties for more color options."


  • Click on the "Advanced" button.

  • Click on the "Item" drop-down menu. Select "Scroll bar."

  • Change the width by entering "17" under the "Size" category. 17 is the default scroll bar width for Windows operating system

  • Click on "OK" and select "Apply" to end task.


  • Thank You,

    Lost your File Menu in IE (Internet Explorer)? PC's/Laptops


    Do the following to retrieve your File Menu. Lock the ToolBar instructions as well, and how to minimize and maximize (restore) your IE screen.

    Alt - F. This will bring up the file menu.
    Use the arrow keys to scroll over to the "View" tab.
    Select Toolbars, (do not click) and move the mouse over to "Menu Bar" and click if there is not a check mark.
    Once this is checked, the File Menu should stay. Close out IE and re-open to save the changes. The file menu should then remain at place. You can also "lock" the tool bar as well: Follow these same steps: this time at the bottom of the list under Toolbars: make sure the Lock ToolBar is checked. If not, if desired, click this.
    Also, if this does not work, you may have accidentally hit the F11 button which maximizes the screen to "Full View". If this is the case, simply push the F11 buttom to minimize back to original size. If the screen minimizes to it's smallest view setting, simply click the box in the middle (next to X close out button), and it will Maximise the screen, but to normal size, and the file menu will remain as well. If the file menu is not there, hit F11 again, and then if still not there (making sure screen is at normal view). Follow the instructions above to retrieve the file menu.

    Yahoo Email access problems


    Hi all ,

    As of December 2009......

    If you have been unable to access your Yahoo email recently , even though your password and user ID are correct , and your screen and computer just freezes up , please try this very simple solution......

    It seems that for people using a computer screen resolution of less than 1024 x 768 , the new all singing all dancing Yahoo Email goes haywire when you try to use it. But for some strange reason other Yahoo emails may display correctly without any problem using the same computer.

    Solution: Change your computer screen resolution to at least 1024 x 768

    How: right click on your desktop picture , scroll down to `properties` or `display properties` and left click it , then select the `settings` tab , or keep clicking the tabs until you see a slider bar showing the screen resolution. Drag the bar to at least 1024 x 768 , click on `apply` and then `ok` , and then try logging into your Yahoo Email again. This time it should work.

    ERROR MESSAGES ON COMPUTER


    Hi,

    I just want to check with you - is that the full error message? Usually it's something like: "The instruction at '<address>' referenced memory at '<address>'. The memory could not be read." So, there might be an address missing. Also, what operating system are you using?

    You might try running memtest86 to see if there's anything wrong with the physical memory in your system: http://download.cnet.com/Memtest86/3000-2086_4-10524193.html

    You could also try this if you have IE7:

    1. Open Internet Explorer.
    2. On the menu bar, choose Tools > Internet Options.
    3. Click the Security tab.
    4. Select the Internet zone and click the Custom Level button. The Security Settings window opens.
    5. Scroll down to the Scripting section of Settings.
    6. Under Allow paste operations via script, select Enable or Prompt.
    7. Click OK to close the Security Settings window.
    8. Click Yes when asked if you want to change security settings for this zone.
    9. Click OK again to close the Internet Options window.

    XP Pro desktop: I open web page and screen closes back to desktop


    Could be either a virus or compatibility issue with an update. Go to Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs. Click in the SHOW UPDATES at the top of the screen. Scroll down until you find Windows Internet Explorer 7. Look for the newest date of Updates to IE. Uninstall the last update by clicking on it and selecting remove. Then test IE. If this does not work, look for the last Windows update and do the same.

    I am a novice at this-- i trying to download music at any site but their software will not work on my microsoft xp firewall was mentioned ??? help


    in the system tray (the bar at the bottom of your screen to the right) you will see a red icon with an x in it. double click on that. when the window pops up scroll to the bottom. You will see windows firewall. click once on that. when that window opens look at the top where you will see 3 tabs. click on exceptions. is the program you are trying to use in that menu ?.

    If so click on it so it has a check mark. click apply and close all the windows. that should allow downloads.

    Keep in mind the firewall is there for a purpose so be sure the site or program you are allowing is not harmful.

    Toshiba equium L10-300 problems


    Hey there stuart cdm, the task bar problem can be solved by scrolling down to the taskbar and right clicking on it to reveal a box which has properties listed on it. Left click on properties, and choose your options, you can uncheck the keep the taskbar on top of other windows option. You should also experiment with the other options checked to see which ones you prefer.
    The size of the internet screen can be adjusted by clicking on the box next to the red X at the top right corner. then move your pointer to the right or left edge of the window and go back and forth until the arrow appears. When the arrow is visible, hold down left button on the pointer, and slide side to side until you get the size you prefer. You can also do this for the top or bottom, or on corners it will give you a diagonal arrow and allows you to expand or shrink the window easily. You can use this function to adjust the window size for any function and your pc should remember your last setting and keep it until you change it again. Good Luck!

    My scren is not showing my info bar on the bottom and there is a one and a hlf inch black line on the right of my screen and ahalf ince black line on the upper portions of my screen and my screen itself if...


    You can adjust your display through 1 of two ways.
    1. Somewhere on your monitor are buttons that allow you to adjust your screen position, ( left- right-up-down, widen / stretch in both direction, up & down at the same time & left & right at the same time. If you still have the manual for the monitor it will explain how to do this. Every monitor is not the same & each monitor has their own way to adjust monitor positions.

    2. This might be a bit harder but all you'll need is youe mouse.
    Find an emty space on your desktop, ( yeah I know it's messed up right now, did I mention this would be harder?).
    I want you to right click once on your desktop & that will open a small pop-up menue. Left click once on Properties

    You have just opened your display Properties. ( I need to mention just like the monitor adjustment screen is different from one to another, your video card will also be different.) My instructions should be close for you to adjust your screen.

    So you have Display Properties on your screen. Click the settings tab, than click the Advanced button. Here click the Adapter tab. Look down & you'll see a button ( List All Modes).
    Click it. The mode screen will open. There is a scroll bar on the right. Slide the scroll bar down & pick out the setting you want.
    Most people use setting - 1024 by 768, True Color (32bit), 60 Hertz
    Click Ok & than Apply. Your screen should adjust it's self.
    If it does not, than someone messed with the monitor adjustments & you'll have to re-adjust from the monitor.

    Good luck!
