comment USB devices are only recognized if connected at boot (Win 8.1 x64)
The only reason I'm delaying the award to the last day is due to the initial resets not having taken effect. I'm not sure why that was, and I'm curious about whether or not the OP's issue was resolved.

@Jet Well, like I said, I had tested the changes with a restart. I really believe it was the power-settings change or the firewall update. But it's possible that the first few restarts didn't work. Again, I was needing to restart my PC every time I plugged something in for a couple days, and I had never had the problem in the past. I did change the upnp for the first time in a couple years.... It's possible, you know? And it makes sense. I just feel it may have been something else. Anyway, great stuff. Thanks for all the help. I'd like to know about 'Repair Install' for 7. :)

@Jet The issue resolved, but I'm not sure how. Those services were set to manual. I changed them to automatic and rest my system, and the issue did not resolve. I believe the issue was either resolved by a firewall update or by a change to the power settings.

That's nice, but I'm trying to do this specifically for background images.

If you press ctrl+z after inserting the image, it stretches it to full screen. But can't find a way to create a correct-dimensions background, myself.

@harrymc I'm sorry, but that hasn't worked. Other suspicious behavior: the DVD burner doesn't want to burn anything. It hangs after a few seconds. Nothing in the event viewer matches the time. My phone says it's connected, but my PC says it's not.

@harrymc So far, this appears to be the correct answer; however, I will need to run some test over the next several days to be certain.

Using Chrome. Windows Explorer is where I get the dialog, though.

But there's no method in your answer or terminology so that the method can be researched.

@JonnyHenly I use Npp, but I was also thinking Google Chrome.
