The cool way is called Aero Shake. Use the mouse like you would move a Window, but shake it (move left and to right very fast).

It's a bit quirky to reply to my own post but that's the ways of SE. The coolest way to minimize all the windows except the one that's active is to literally shake the window. Yes, as in: click and hold on the frame of the window move repetitively and quickly to the left and right Tada! (Credit goes to 9Gag for this.)

When it says, "Moving these is also not supported" it is referring to the fact that doing so rarely results in a reliable system, upgrade or no. The problem here is that many programs make absolute references to files inside these folders, so if you move the folder then the file is not found. If you type set in a cmd (dos) prompt and press enter, it will ...

NEVER try to install Windows into a non-boot partition, or onto a non-default drive. Recipe for disaster. Either temporarily disconnect SATA1 or else change the BIOS boot order so the empty disk is the first in line. (Better disconnecting as you know that will stop access to the wrong disk) Most computers will boot from USB, but if you cannot, then an ...

You may be nested deeper than you were previously if you are using the Windows user folders under C:\%HOMEPATH%\Documents etc. or any number of other reasons. Flattening your structure with shorter names is really your only option. To clean up the offending directory, make sure you have your files safely stored in a new folder and clean up the old one ...

The image seems to slightly zoom in and slides image ...

I know the original question was posted back over a year from now , but anyway I would like to share how I could resolve a similar issue: You should first verify that the "Virtual WiFi Filter Driver" is running, as if this driver is stopped, then you'll get the msg : "The hosted network couldn't be started. The group or resource is not in the correct state ...

The reason why it doesnt work, is that the virtual machine is using a generic virtual CD/DVD ROM driver. The actual hardware is abstracted from the VM and all it knows is that there is a CD/DVD ROM device is present. The reality is, there might not actually be hardware there. It could just be an .ISO or even another virtual drive. Does this mean it cant ...

There could be a number of reasons for your problems, and it's hard to say which. My advice when setting something like this up would be: Don't bridge. That is principally for paralleled connections to the same LAN. Use a cheap switch/hub instead of an X-over cable, which is not always reliable. Buy an Ethernet wireless access point and connect this ...
