I'm sure I'm not crazy but google and shitty tech help forums are making me feel like it.
My desktop has been doing this weird shit where if I click an icon then try to select a few icons directly below it, it will select every fucking icons to the right of the first icon (horizontally) down to the icons below.
All these fucking forums are saying windows has always done this which is a lie or they try to be cheeky and suggest dragging the mouse to select.
Along with this issue when I save things to the desktop they will alternate to the top left or to the bottom right of the icons.

Windows has literally always done this.
When you press Shift+mouse to select multiple files, it'll select everything between what you selected first and the second file you click on. When you press Ctrl+mouse, it only selects what you click on.

>> No.58290819

>>58290743
depending on how something.js executes you can override it's properties.
in some cases you can't, but again it depends on how the script works.

so basically, you can't replace parts of it, only the entire thing if you can inject JS before something.js gets included.

Yeah, if you're using one of the listed icon/file views instead of the grid of icons in explorer.

Shift+click selects a range of files, e.g. 1 -> 10. If these are arranged on a grid, then it selects them on a grid going either left or right because that's the order the files are in. It has done this forever.

if the GPU has dual-mode displayport you can use a passive HDMI -> DisplayPort converter cable

Had a successful dual boot of linux, with windows for gaming only. I then broke my Linux OS, and in reinstalling it, messed up the bootloader for Windows 8.1.

I tried doing everything I could last night. I had an installation media that would only boot in CSM mode (my computer is UEFI based; Windows 8.1 was natively installed as UEFI) and as such, I couldn't the BCD related programs to repair the bootloader. Bootrepair detected the bootloader and added it Grub but it just went straight to grub. Booting in UEFI took me to a BSOD because BCD was missing. Using CSM boot, I could access the installation media, but not go anywhere: it was not able to repair my computer, I could not install, reinstall or refresh. All of the BCD related commands would work until the final one, wherein it would say system could not be found.

After spending many many hours attemping to salvage the NTFS partition that had all my downloaded games and my delightfully hand-stripped version of windows, I decided to nuke the thing and totally wrote over the drive with a fresh linux install. I recreated a new installation media for Windows.

Same issue, Boot Configuration Data is missing. Now I can't even boot into Windows using CSM.

I just flashed my BIOS via CD, but it did not help. I only want Windows for gaming; WINE has never worked for me and a VM won't work. What do?

besides pay toshiba to continue their farce of a tech support.
also, in case it's not clear:

When I was able to access the Windows installation I could make my way to the command prompt. I can't from this window. My only option is to go back to BIOS.

Lots of different ways you can get the data back to the PC. You could stick a full computer in there to use it as a NAS over SMB/NFS/etc, you could use it as a SAN over iSCSI. Or if you don't want a computer in there, you can use eSATA with a port multiplier, which can also be converted into USB 3.0 if that's what you'd prefer.

Making UEFI compatible install media is easy, format the flash drive as FAT32, drag and drop everything from in your Windows .iso onto the drive (assuming you're using win8/8.1/10, 7 is trickier since the .iso doesn't include the UEFI bootloader by default.)

When you've got the installer running, shift+F10 to bring up a command prompt, then diskpart, list vol, select vol n -- n being the number of your EFI partition, assign letter s, exit. Then go to S:, nuke your EFI\Microsoft folder.

If the Toshiba UEFI is ever being an ass and not finding the UEFI file you want, make another flash drive with rEFInd or an EFI shell.
