  1. Maximise Firefox with taskbar clicks


    Hello everyone,
    I don't know how best to put this question in the title. Let me explain what I mean. On my work laptop which runs on Windows 10 too, Firefox maximises with one click in the taskbar even if I have multiple tabs open. When I try the same on my personal one, I have to select the tab I want to open via the preview. Clicking on the icon in the taskbar only slides the preview up and down. Is there a setting where I can change this? Thanks in advance for your replies!

  2. Taskbar not Maximising Tasks - Windows 10

    I have an issue where certain items in my taskbar are not maximising when opening and are locked in a minimised state on the taskbar. Tried the CCleaner, System Maintenance and SFC suggestions (from the file explorer not responding posts) and the unpinning
    and disabling snap suggestions (on taskbar items not maximising posts for older versions of Windows) with no luck. This was actually a problem I had a while back near release of Windows 10, but then I had Edge and the actual startup menu not responding either.
    Got to the point where I got sick of tinkering and reinstalled Windows 10 - in hindsight I should have probably reverted to Windows 7. It worked for a while, but file explorer stopped working again a few days ago and today my EA Origin has stopped maximising. It's
    weird as it appears in QuickView (by hovering over the File Explorer/Origin icon in the toolbar), but it just won't maximize - doesn't respond at all.

    Any suggestions as to what else I can try would be greatly appreciated before more items stop maximising and I'm stuck with reinstalling Windows for another time. Thank you!

  3. Pinning Firefox to Taskbar causes second icon on tasbar to appear

    Hi,

    Apologize for the difficulties that you're experiencing regarding this issue and also for the delay in getting back to you. Do not worry. Let me help you in fixing this issue.

    Did you try reinstalling the Firefox program? If not, I suggest that you do the same and check if it helps.

    Combining the taskbar buttons should fix this issue. Refer to the following steps to do the same:

    • Right click on Taskbar and select
      Properties.
    • Select Always combine, Hide labels
      in Taskbar buttons.
    Hope this helps. Get back to us for further assistance.

    Maximise Firefox with taskbar clicks

    Maximise/Minimising windows is not working.


    Hi all,

    I have a problem with my Win10 laptop and the best way to describe it (i think!), is that the minimise/maximising of windows is not behaving as expected.
    For example: sometimes I am unable to maximise a window properly, it seems to maximise, but not come to the front of the open windows. so if I have a browser open, and try to maximise MsWord, the word window maximises, but sits behind the browser so I then have to minimise the browser.
    ALSO sometimes even this doesn't work as for some reason a window will change its position to off the screen so the only way to maximise it (without ending the program and re-starting), is to hover over the taskbar icon, right click the needed window and hit maximise.

    I find this extremely frustrating as the simplest task (switching between windows) is a massive hassle.

    If anyone has any suggestions of possible fixes or has had the same problem please get in contact! At this point it'd be nice to know i'm not the only person with this issue!

    Cheers,
    Sam
