Windows 7: 7100 forgets quicklaunch and presents login screen

7100 forgets quicklaunch and presents login screen

Two question on build 7100:

1. I am using the quicklaunch bar, as explained in the tutorial. After restarting, Windows "forgets" to show the quicklaunch. Is there a fix for this?

2. After while of inactivity, windows shows the login screen. How can I turn this off?

Thank you for any answers.

Thank you for any answers.
Type power in Start Search, click on change Power Options, click on Require a password on wakeup, click on Change settings that are currently unavailable, click on Don't require a password, click on save changes close the window finished

I hope this helps

Yes sorry I cant help you here, I was really disapointed to find that the Quick Launch Bar was dropped in 7.

I never tried to get it back though and am now reasonably happy with pinning icons on the Task Bar. It comes in at a poor second place, but is workable

I am glad that you got the other problem sorted.

I have just had a thought, when I set up my toolbar, I always put Computer on there, as Icons. After the last install it also kept reverting back after a New Start. All I did was keep putting Computer back on the Tool Bar eventually it stayed put
Annoying but it worked, the only thing that I may have done differently to you (apart from a different bar) was that I locked the Toolbar b4 Restarting. It could just be possible that this will work for you too.

I meant to keep trying it. Lock and restart after you have set it up, maybe it will remember this setting after a couple of attempts just like it did for me.

caid602 Hello. I also am having buggy performance from the quick launch. I do not have your problem. Mine is that the first icon from the list is visible on the taskbar. However annoying this is it is still there after restart. I have it working good on 7000 64 bit beta, the buggy behavior is on my 32 bit test machine that has 7100 on it that I got from a torrent. I am hoping that it may work for us at sometime in the future because I use it often. Good luck.. lm

I did several restarts by now, but it doesn't help - Win 7 keeps forgetting the quicklaunch bar ;-(
Does anybody know, where this setting should be safed? Maybe I can edit the registry manually?
