I suspect it's because it's a "known extension" and you have those hidden. Open Windows Explorer and go to Organize => Folder and search options => View tab => untick Hide extensions for known file types.

Actually, Chrome's handling of this seems to be the one that is non-standard. From what I can tell, most apps behave the same way that IE does, and I believe it's an intentional design decision. To be honest, I prefer the way IE handles it ... the "snapped" state of a window is not the same thing as it's normal state or it's maximized state. I typically ...

The cmos battery is unrechargeable. It is your home electricity supply power to keep your bios data. If you unplug your power cord (like completely disconnect your PC to your house electricity) for a while, you should see bios warning message again.

I suspect it's software bloat, following Wirth's Law.

This has to do with the icon vertical spacing. Whatever you have it set to, there isn't a full row remaining below (between what you see & the taskbar) so the bottom full row seems as if it has a row of space below it, when actually it's not enough space for another row. So if you want to have the icons land lower, you have to adjust the vertical ...

The CMOS circuit has some capacitance. The current draw is so low that this capacitance can power the memory for some time, possibly hours or even days. The battery is, was, and always will be dead.

Unfortunately without a hack or a third party program you won't be able to do this in Windows.

It is likely that such an App doesn't exist. What you search for is an App that transforms your Smartphone (or Tablet) into an A2DP sink (that receives the Audio from a A2DP source). If you're interested in building such an app or you might want to know why there isn't yet such an app, this question on stackoverflow might be interesting. There are several ...

Windows uses these "hidden" system files to store metadata about the folder. It is not a rogue or harmful file. You can delete them but they'll probably come back. Use the options others have given if you don't want them to be visible.

Go to the desktop by pressing WIN LOGO + D to go the desktop immediately and pressing the arrow keys once or more than once should help. Always works for me. To shift your focus to the taskbar press WIN LOGO + the numberly order of your app, this should work. To shift the focus to the notifications area press WIN LOGO + B, you'll find the ^ button ...

I think this was already answered here. In short: you can't have different docks - sorry about that.

There is Desktop! by Skrommel, a freeware program which gives the desktop window (because that's what the desktop is, a maximized always-on-bottom folder window) its own taskbar button. Which can then of course be Alt-Tab'ed to.

If your computer was plugged in, the power supply was likely providing power to the RTC/NVRAM (i.e. CMOS). I don't think the CMOS would be corrupted on most hardware if the CR2032 battery was dead unless the system was unplugged and had no other power. Some hardware may be different.

To rotate the display, hold down ctrl+alt and either Up, Down, Left, or Right to orient the screen as each of the four orientations.

Because the Fences handles the sorting of the icons etc. you have to uninstall it. That should solve the problem. Because it seems that Fences disable the sort on desktop.

You must enable the option to have the file manager handle the desktop. If you are using the gnome desktop environment this is very easy. Just install the gnome-tweak-tool, open it, go to the option 'desktop' and then enable the option 'Have file manager handle the dektop'.

It's just a system file, designated to be 'hidden'. You can set folder preferences to Show/Hide Hidden Files/Folders if you like. Common files are .BAT, .DLL, and .INI

Recently experienced this issue. Unsure how it started, but I was able to put windows to this "super window" state with win+d twice and clicking on a different window. I was going to try the Ctrl+Shift+Esc shortcut to open the Task Manager but hit Ctrl+Alt+Esc instead and the window returned to the normal state. I was able to successfully return all windows ...

I think there is a way to do that using commands written in notepads You can write C and C++ using Notepad. SHGetSetSettings takes a pointer to a SHELLSTATE structure. SHELLSTATE has a fHideIcons member: fHideIcons Type: BOOL TRUE to hide desktop icons, FALSE to show them.

when I switch over to "Desktop" using Alt+Tab, Windows uses the "Show Desktop" command instead of minimizing all Windows. I personally hate "Show Desktop", since it creates a separate window on top of all the other windows which captures a live display of desktop, and this causes all the widgets I have on the desktop to be hidden under this live window, ...

This could be done by a number of programs. Rainmeter, Samurize, Rocketdock, and more. what you're probably looking for, without all the theme alternating parts, is a app called xwidgets. It has a simple drag and drop interface, and should do what you need.

In a file's context menu, there's an Open with submenu. From there, select Choose default program.... A metro-style dialog will pop up in the center of your screen. For pictures, the desktop program is "Windows Photo Viewer". Unfortunately, you'll have to repeat this procedure for the various picture file types (BMP, JPEG, PNG, ...).
