Windows 10: Windows 10 AU 1607 TH2: Icon Text Left Justified
Don't use the anniversary upgrade.
Use Windows 7 or 8...
I noticed this issue too after upgrading to v1607. I personally prefer the centred text but if this is a change by Microsoft and not a bug then I would like the option of displaying it as it was before. It doesn't look quite right when it is left-justified but that might be just from having got used to the text always being centred across Windows XP, Vista, 8/8.1 and 10 v1511.
Please give feedback to MS on this. The text wrapping as it does e.g.
MS's policy seems to be to progressively reduce appearance options.
Any news on this ?
I have also mentioned on the Feedback Hub.
Seen by MS support in report here:
Recommendation to turn to spirits for consolation here:
Folders/Files names are aligned to the left after the anniversary update? : Windows10
I guess if you look further on the web you may find sthg more recent..
Still happens if I disable qttabbar completely.
How long can it take to put something back the way it was?
3 years and a new OS (e.g. the Start Menu).
Didn't notice at first because I use Tiles as default view for folders (default left justified) and the Desktop looks fine with its centered names under the icons.
Yesterday as I tried to rename a file, the text field centered itself according to the tile width and that drove me up the wall. Short filenames will move to right, to center themselves, long filenames will move to the left and overlap the icons, it's absolutely disgusting.
And to think I was happy with no Windows Update warnings pestering me to grab the Anniversary update, until I did a manual update check...
Please, let me join the group waiting for a fix.
Please see work around I posted way back in thread above.
I hardly notice it anymore!
Is there some way I can hide or remove the title bar text and icon? I am running windows 10 (10586). I have included a screenshot of the offending item..
after a day using windows 10 I can't click any icons on the system tray and I can't click the windows button.
I can click them with the right mouse button.
When I left click on them it gives a short loading cursor and after that it doesn't...
Dell desktop Dell Inspiron 560 4gb RAM; high speed cable; MS Windows10 64bit; Windows Live Mail 2012; MS Word Pro 2003; Mozilla Firefox 22.0; Avast AV; Windows Media Player; Adobe Reader; Adobe flash Player 11,8,800,94 or better by now...
The area in the display settings to change font sizes etc is grayed out and I can not find any way to make my various text sizes bold...
This icon used to be in the form of a folder, but I deleted it and it's come back as a piece of paper. I haven't a clue as to what it's for, because when I click on it, nothing happens.
Anyone else getting this?
