    Pretty happy without effort, 1 1/2 irritations

    I'm just using sync on two systems and it's been working out pretty well.

    After the initial "big Sync" where it gave me a bunch of empty folders in bookmarks root, ones that corresponded to...

    Thanks for the hint. What I'm asking affects this behavior.

    I came to this thread because I would like to see my windows 7 alt tab interface stay "always on top." As it is, the mini-windows get...

    Round One
    I haven't deliberately worked on this yet but I did stumble into something. And separately, I have decided to ease the process by testing with profiles instead of edit > sync > wipe >...

    Managing Sync

    Now that I'm Syncing my Firefox installations I want to trim down the bookmark forest, or at least manage it in the mean time - during the trimming process.

    The only problem I see is that it looks...
  5. Dual head display, #2 no-wakup irritation, but fun

    Any off the top of your head suggestions? With the kludge in place, a proper fix is not worth much research time. It may have turned up just after an auto-patch a few days ago, I didn't pay...

    I'm curious about apps. I don't mean this to be a major diversion, but it might explain some things.

    Are apps for MS Windows (and the MS phone OS) vetted in the way Apple apps are vetted? Or is...

    I think I got it

    The sensitive part of the touchpad does not start on the physical edge of the touchpad, but a couple of mm in. I use my middle finger and it naturally lands on the sensitive edge...

    Funny, they aren't called Accessibility Options in W8 now. The settings I looked at in the Ease of Access Center didn't help. Any suggestions?

    I couldn't find anything like mouse hover / speed...

    One day later, drivers are still up to date.

    The system does not do it as often, but the problem still happens, apparently at random. It might be website specific.

    I'll try to pin down the...

    Thanks guys, reality check. And I really appreciate the link, sure I could have navigated but it smoothed the process.

    As of now Dell says I'm up to date. I'll check in after a day or two and...

    Yes, as part of the 8.0 to 8.1.1 upgrade I kept hitting Windows update until it returned a "no" status. Then I checked in again every morning.

    The best way to demonstrate the problem is to mimic...
  12. Touchpad on Dell, Win 8.1.1, browser photo links, side panel

    Hi All, my new Dell laptop will lose touch pad sensitivity and the right side-swipe panel (and clock) will appear when my pointer is over photo links on some web pages. While testing for this thread...

    This is interesting, I had replied to another thread: "Have you tried 8.1.1" and it created this thread. I used quick reply.

    Maybe an admin thought it warranted a thread of its own.

    I'm new to 8.x, using a "built for" laptop that came with 8.0. Man am I glad MS offered a free upgrade because 8.0 drove up my blood pressure.

    8.1.1 seems to bring the better parts of the old and...

    Some Windows 8 questions

    I am a new 8 user. Before I had done much at all on the new laptop the upgrade now prompt came on. I'll be interested because a few of the other interface changes from xp & 7 affected my blood...
  16. Not a fix, but almost

    Here's a keyboard shortcut I've found to help drill down to the current directory. I found it before I read the tools > options > expand suggestion above, which I intend to try too.

    I know I'm starting with Explorer 101, but it sure would gum up the task if we weren't on the same page.

    Just to make sure my terminology is right:

  18. Windows 7 Explorer, folder pane - resolution?

    This is about the left-pane or folder view of Windows Explorer.

    Has any native resolution to the Explorer folder pane behavior been discovered?

    Namely:
