    Windows Task Manager strange behavior


    Hello,Windows Task Manager's icon is on the taskbar. Recently when I click to open it, it opens in a tiny window at the left upper corner of the display, hardly find it. Have to resize it - not to the full size, so I drag open it to size I want.What I did so far: Right-clicked on the icon, then clicked on properties, and checked once normal size, then again checked maximized.But on a next time it again sits tiny small in the upper left corner of the display.I have not done any updates recently except updating windows defender daily.This starts to be annoying.Answers will be appreciated.Thanks Windows 10 pro, 19041.928 x64

    :)

  2. Strange behavior of the Start menu

    You can add shortcuts in the start menu, alphabetical list, by adding them in the old start menu location. What is strange is that if you add several shortcuts to the same program with different parameters, only one appears on the list, why ? No idea. Anyway
    it appears with the right icon, the one defined by the shortcut. If this entry list is pinned to the start screen, it appears with the icon of the exe file, not the one of the shortcut. Second strange behavior. I regret all this. The start menu of W10 lost
    something very important in the W7 and previous versions. The ability to create a hierarchical menu : one for internet, one for multimedia, one for office programs etc… The actual start menu is a real mess compared to what could be done in W7. This can be
    partly solved by the start screen : it’s possible to create folders, one for internet, one for multimedia ad so on, and the folders can contain pinned tiles to the right programs. Anyway, its’ completely impossible to create several shortcuts to the same program.
    For example one for starting the browser to one a website, one for starting it to another website and so on. Personally, I solve this by using an alternate shell able to manage several shortcuts to the same program… and to choose the icon. Anyway, this behavior
    of the start menu remains very strange, and makes the start menu of W10 less usable than the ones of the previous versions of windows (not W8 of course which was a complete failure).

    Windows 10 - cannot add exec to Startup in Task Manager

    I purchased a new computer with Windows 10 already installed. I am trying to add an exec to the startup list but Win10 will not accept it. The exec runs successfully on my Windows 10 machine if I start it manually.

    Steps I've taken: Task Manager, Startup Tab, File>Run New Task. (browse to location, select.) It will start immediately, but does not show up on the list to autostart, nor does it start on reboot.

    Any suggestions?

    Task Manager - Startup tab

    Actually, I like your suggestion as a first step.

    Unchecking the wrong thing in Autoruns can brick a system.
