    Commonly you have a blue bar under your file.

    But I found with Notepad, I have a blue bar that changes colors.

  2. Windows 10 - how can i change the size of the scroll bar ? it used to be under properties but not on Windows 10

    Hi Teroi,



    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community.

    I regret the inconvenience caused to you. Let me help you.



    In order to understand the issue in a better manner, please share the following details.


    • Which application’s or program’s scroll bar are you referring to?

    • What was the exact steps that you used to change the size of scroll bar in your previous OS version?


    The size of the scroll bar cannot be altered as it is inbuilt with the Windows Operating System.

    I suggest you to share the details, so that we can assist you accordingly.



    Thank you.

    Under Settings & Features what does an unavailable app mean?


    The Apps & Features list shows the applications you have installed on your system, both Windows Store app and desktop applications. By default the list is sorted by the size they occupy on the hard drive.

    List also shows the date the app was last used:

    In case of a Windows Store app showing size as Unavailable, it only means that you have not yet used that app since you upgraded to 10 like Mail and Calendar, Maps and Microsoft Solitaire in the below screenshot; as soon as I will use them, the Settings app can calculate their size. In case of a desktop applications Unavailable is also sometimes shown even when you have used the application but for one or another reason the Settings app cannot determine the size of the application. In screenshot below you can see Maxthon Browser, Microsoft Expression Encoder and Office 365 size as Unavailable although I use all of them on daily basis:

    Short answer: Unavailable in this list simply means that the size the application is taking on your hard disk cannot be determined by the Settings app.

    Blue Screen Of Death - Why does this one happen?

    Hi,

    A blue screen error or stop error usually means that the computer encountered some corruption. For us to isolate the issue, we need additional information:

    • Did you perform any changes prior to the issue?
    • Is the computer still able to go to the login screen or is it already stuck on the blue screen?

    In the meantime, we suggest checking and following the steps on this article:

    steps on how to fix it. Kindly choose the option based on when you've received the error.
