  1. Quick way to select correct 5.1 speaker option


    I have this annoying situation with being able to switch between Stereo and 5.1 that I was hoping you guys could figure out.


    I have to switch my speaker config to stereo to watch things like YouTube, which aren't in 5.1, so I can get the sound closer to my ears as stereo doesn't play towards the back of the room when it's configured as 5.1. This is fine.


    But when I want to go back to 5.1 for a film or a game, I simply can't select the 5.1 option from the right click menu (as shown below), I have to actively go into the speaker configuration, select the correct 5.1 option, then press OK multiple times (11 clicks total, vs 2 for setting stereo).


    If I pick the 5.1 option from the pop-up menu, it selects the incorrect 5.1 configuration (shown as the non-highlighted option on the left), which has the rear speakers on the sides instead - in this configuration I get no sound from the rear.


    Any idea how to delete the extra 5.1 option so only the correct one remains, or set it so that the correct one is selected by default?

  2. Quick Access bar

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    We would be glad to help you with the issue you are facing today. I understand the difficulty.

    Remove items from Quick access.

    I would suggest you to follow the below steps.

    • Right click on the file or folder.
    • Select the option “unpin from the quick access”


    To pin items to an item already on the quick access bar.

    Follow the below steps.

    I would suggest you to create folder in the desktop screen & place all the files or folder which need to pin to the quick access.

    • Open the quick access.
    • Select the Desktop option.
    • Right click on the folder & select the option “pin to quick access”


    Hope this helps in resolving the issue. If the issue persists, do get back to us. We will be happy to assist you.

    How To Format A Write Protected Flash Memory ?

    ¿You already tried this one?...

    Run CMD


    1. diskpart
    2. list disk

    Then in the 3º step, put the correct number of disk in the list for the usb flash (if it's listed in disk 3, then you'll have to write select disk 3).

    2. select disk #
    3. clean
    4. create partition primary
    5. select partition 1
    6. active
    7. format fs=fat32
    8. assign
    9. exit

    with that commands you will format the flash drive in fat32, if you have a large drive you can select also "format fs=ntfs" in step 7.

    good luck!

    Quick Access Not Working

    Hi Dustin,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    Follow the below steps to repair the broken database of Quick Access.

    Method 1:

    Before repairing the database, try to disable and then re-enable Quick Access to see if it helps. To disable and re-enable Quick Access, follow the below steps:

    Step 1: To remove frequent folders and recent files list from Quick Access, open File Explorer > click on View tab in Ribbon >
    click on Options > Change folder and search options to open Folder Options.

    Step 2: You’ll have to uncheck the following two check-boxes present under the Privacy section to disable Quick Access:

    • Show recently used files in Quick Access.
    • Show frequently used folders in Quick Access.

    Step 3: Click Apply and Exit. The action will instantly remove these two sections from Quick Access in File Explorer. (To clear your Quick Access history press the ‘Clear’ button against Clear File Explorer History).

    Step 4: Then, check
    the following two check-boxes again to enable Quick Access that you did in
    Step2.

    • Show recently used files in Quick Access.
    • Show frequently used folders in Quick Access.

    Step 5: Restart the PC once and check the issue and if the issue persist, follow the
    Method 2.

    Method 2:

    The Method 2 will repair the broken database of Quick Access.

    Step 1: Open File Explorer and paste this folder path: %AppData%\Microsoft\Windows\Recent\AutomaticDestinations in the address bar and hit Enter.

    Step 2: Once the folder is opened, press ‘Ctrl’ key and the ‘A’ from your keyboard to select all of its contents and delete it.

    Step 3: Do the same for this folder path as well: %AppData%\Microsoft\Windows\Recent\CustomDestinations

    Step 4: Restart the PC once and check the issue.

    Hope it helps.
