Text missing against all sizes of "Icons" view in Explorer. RRS feed

  • Question

  • My PC is a self build (Not me personally, way too clever for me!)
    Spec: -
    Asus P5Q3 deluxe WiFi motherboard
    Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 CPU
    Samsung Spinpoint 500GB HDD
    nVida GeForce 9600GT 512MB DDR3 Graphics card
    2x1GB Corsair DDR3 10666 RAM
    OCZ 600w StealthXstream PSU
    All in a Gigabyte Triton 180 case.
    Running Vista Ultimate SP1 and Office 2007

    My 500GB HDD is partitioned into 4 "Drives".
    I try not to put anything on the "C" drive where the OS resides, but of course, some software muscles in regardless!

    "D" Drive is my Recovery sector (Little on it at present).

    "E" drive is home to my Applications.

    "F" drive is for my Data Files.

    Viewing any of these Sectors/Drives in Explorer, my chosen view is "Large
    Icons", under each of which is the "File Name".

    I think the cause is related to me installing "Paragon Partition Manager 2009se"
    I realised that I had mistakenly selected my "F" drive as the destination, and just to be sure, I Right clicked on the programme in the "All Prog's list, and clicked "Get Target"...this brought up the folder, sure enough, it was on the "F" drive.
    Then I did something silly!
    I cut and pasted it onto the "E" (Apps) Drive and changed the path to find it. Opening the programme from "All Prog's", opened the interface, and all seemed fine, so I closed the programme, and at this point found that the folder names on "F" Drive had gone!
    Sorry it's such a long post, but I thought you might need a full confession:-(

  • Hi,

     

    Thanks for your update.

     

    Based on test on our test machines, while you press Shift and click Views to change large icon. It may cause this gap under folders. To troubleshoot this kind of issue, please hold Shift down and click on the View button and select Thumbnails.

     

    You should now see thumbnails with file names under them.

     

    Hope this helps.

  • Hi,

     

    Thanks for posting in Microsoft TechNet Forum.

     

    Try to perform a System Restore if you own a previous good restore point.

     

    System Restore

    ===============

     

    1.   Please click on Start and choose All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, and then Windows Backup.

    2.   Click Restore on the left pane.

    3.   Choose Basic Restore.

    4.   Follow the wizard and click Next.

    5.   If you would like to restore everything in the backup, we can check the box “Restore everything in this backup” on the top of the window.

    6.   We can also browse and choose certain files and folders to restore. Then, click Next.

    7.   Then choose the folder to save the recovered files and click Next.

    8.   When we see a “Restore is complete!” message, click Finish.

     

    If you don't own a restore point, it is much appreciated if you can give us a screenshot. Thanks.

     

    Screenshot

    ==========

     

    1.   Press the Print Screen key (PrtScn) on your keyboard.

    2.   Click the "Start" menu, type "mspaint" in the Search Bar and Press Enter.

    3.   In the Paint program, click the "Edit" menu, click "Paste", click the "File" menu, and click "Save".

    4.   The "Save As" dialogue box will appear. Type a file name in the "File name:" box, for example: "screenshot".

    5.   Make sure "JPEG (*.JPG;*.JPEG;*.JPE;*.JFIF)" is selected in the "Save as type" box, click “Desktop” on the left pane and then click "Save".

    6.   Upload this picture to SkyDrive ( www.skydrive.live.com ), then edit what you reply with HTML.

    7.   Insert the following code.

    Best Regards

    Hi Dale,

    Don't think Sys Restore would have helped, as it only monitors "C" drive (Configured that way by "My Learned Friend"!)
    Any way, much has changed in the two months or so that I'd have to go back! lol

    Having a go at uploading a screenshot:...again...and again....Finally with Photobucket!
