    Bing Desktop - Set Homepage Image as Desktop Background

    What I'm trying to do is the following: Update the desktop background and lock screen image with the bing picture of the day. I don't want to have the bing desktop app running all day just for this task that needs to be done once overnight. Would you know how to go about this?

    Main Display - Change in Windows 8

    I've tried different ports with the same outcome. Seems like I'm out of luck!

    Internet Explorer 11 Store your Passwords - Turn On or Off

    The big question is how to manually add login info to the web credential manager as IE does not pick up the login on certain webpages. Have not been able to find a way to do this by searching the net.

    Main Display - Change in Windows 8

    I tried the dvi->hdmi adapter and still the same result. I guess it's because even if it's a different port, it's still the same monitor on the other end. I hate these little annoyances which seems like can't be fixed unless you reformat.

    Main Display - Change in Windows 8

    I'd have to try the adapter and see what happens. Hopefully it will still send 5.1 audio. I'll let you know.

    Main Display - Change in Windows 8

    If the hdmi cable is unplugged, yes it reverts to #1. But as soon as it's plugged back in, PC monitor goes to #2. I have been using "Second screen only" for the PC monitor, but this is what I'm trying to avoid having to do.

    Main Display - Change in Windows 8

    It's an asus r9 270 (just got it). I haven't found any setting in the control panels to change the "identify" number of a display (windows & ccc). Deleting everything and just starting off with the main monitor is fine (it's set to #1). But as soon as I plug in the hdmi, that becomes #1 and the...

    Main Display - Change in Windows 8

    Yes I have. I've got 1 hdmi (the one going to the tv and set as #1) and 2 dvi ports for the monitor (#2). I've tried switching between the 2 dvi ports to no avail.

    Tried that but no luck. Also tried the method on this page HowTo Switch monitor 1 Monitor 2 Identity - Overclockers Forums but that also did not work.

    Main Display - Change in Windows 8

    My question is how do you change the number associated to a display? I asked because my monitor is #2 (should be #1) and my tv is #1 (should be #2). Normally it wouldn't bother me but when you go to Devices -> Project on the charms bar, the option "PC screen only" is hardcoded to display #1...

    Solved File (Windows) Explorer start up in 8.1

    I have yet to play around with the rtm version of 8.1 (I have the preview) but I suspect it's the same behaviour.

    Solved File (Windows) Explorer start up in 8.1

    What I've done to get around my issue is to disable libraries (default behavior in win8.1). Doing so means File Explorer will open to "This PC" (which is what I wanted minus the Libraries shortcuts on the left hand side of File Explorer). I then added shortcuts to the individual Libraries in the...

    Sign in Screen - Change Background Color in Windows 8

    That's unfortunate. That default purple color drives me nutts!

    Solved File (Windows) Explorer start up in 8.1

    Yes, trying to get it to open to "This PC" (which is the new "My Computer" in 8.1). The issue is not jump lists, they work fine. It's when pinning the non default File Explorer icon to the taskbar (either through jump lists or custom shortcut), it opens File Explorer in the correct location but...
