    OneDrive - Remove from Navigation Pane in Windows 8.1

    I suppose you indicated that this has been necessary since Windows 7. I used Windows 7 (and still do) since its inception, used Windows XP, used windows Vista (plus many previous versions of windows and pre-windows (DOS)operating systems. I have yet to encounter this particular problem. When...

    OneDrive - Remove from Navigation Pane in Windows 8.1

    Nothing I do changes permissions. When I ask for permission for user or administrator I am denied. Interestingly enough I have another computer with 8.1 on it and it allows me to make those changes without problems. Don't know what the difference is except the other computer is 8.1 standard...

    OneDrive - Remove from Navigation Pane in Windows 8.1

    I have tried every maneuver to get ownership and permission all to no avail! I have been using ResEdit for years and never experienced such an issue. Is this new to windows 8.1?

    OneDrive - Remove from Navigation Pane in Windows 8.1

    Hi. I have followed the dialog above and find that when I try to change the D-word value from 8 to 9 the registry will not permit me to do that. Did I miss something? I have Windows 64 bit PRO.

    Windows 8.1 refuses to sleep

    The majority of us have problems related to the computer not sleeping when left alone! Many of us are using desktop - not laptop - computers that require power. When left alone to sleep, they fail to sleep. Perhaps you need to read the remainder of the forum messages and see what a nightmare...

    I saw that too I saw the email regarding this update and wondered if this was the one that will cure our problems

    Windows 8.1 refuses to sleep

    just by chance, after reading your message, I disabled IPV6 again since the latest downloads from Microsoft. Voila! My computers both sleep now (they didn't before when I disabled IPV6). Perhaps something in the downloads made a difference and now with IPV6 disabled there is sleep at last AND...

    Windows 8.1 refuses to sleep

    I am trying to live with manually sleeping the computers (the two with the problem) but one of them spontaneously awakens and this is what troubles me. I don't like to get up in the night and find my computer running! But I don't want to have to reinstall all the programs I have - which I...

    Windows 8.1 refuses to sleep

    Yes my computer does sleep when the network cable is unplugged. I have checked and updated the latest drivers for the Ethernet device. I still have the issue of no auto sleep. This issue did not exist with windows 8.0. I have gone over the issues and suggested resolutions in this thread. I...

    Windows 8.1 refuses to sleep

    Then what -- no internet connectivity?? I don't know what it proves if the unplugging of the network cable proves to be the issue (which was not present with windows 8.0) if there is no way to connect to the internet or other parts of the network!

    Windows 8.1 refuses to sleep

    I am certainly happy for those whose computers have been 'fixed' by the latest batch of Microsoft Windows 8.1 patches. The patches did not help my situation. I still have a computer that will not sleep (unless placed in sleep mode) and which wakes up spontaneously of its own free will. I have...

    Windows 8.1 refuses to sleep

    Not for me The update you cite has done nothing for my issue -- my computer still refuses to sleep and continues to wake up spontaneously after it is manually put to sleep.

    Windows 8.1 refuses to sleep

    Sleep issues in 8.1 and SkyDrive and Non-Microsoft Account My issue is not unlike most of the other posts. I updated to 8.1 and since then I have been unable to get sleep to work without manually putting the computer to sleep. I have also experienced the issue of the computer waking up...
