Programs Minimized

by jayesh / April 2, 2006 11:24 AM PDT

Hi, I am running XPPRO with all latest updates and recently when I minimized any programs, it stopped showing the program on the taskbar. Now I do not know which programs are running or have to use the CTRL-TAB to switch between programs.

I tried to look for setting which would re-enable this but could not find this. Any help is appreciated.

Regards,

Jayesh.

Jayesh, Go to the link below and under the letter "T"---"Taskbar" click on "Minimized Programs Missing" to download a vbs file fix. Save it to your hard drive (you may want to right click and use Save Target As). Double
click the vbs file. You will be prompted when the script is done.

NOTE: If your anti-virus software warns you of a "malicious" script, this is normal if you have "Script Safe" or similar technology enabled. These scripts are not malicious, but they do make changes to the System Registry.

It will correct your problem.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
