Unable to project the duplicate screen on TV

Windows 8.1

Original Title: Windows 8.1 Duplicate Screen not working/zoomed in? I need help,I've been going round in circles for 2 hours trying to figure this out. Basically I want to duplicate/mirror my HP Pavilion Windows 8.1 monitor onto my LG Smart TV,I know the TV is setup for this as we have tested it with my stepdads laptop which is the same,and his duplicate screen works fine. However every time I try to connect something crazy happens to my screen... It zooms into a ridiculous level and makes my screen really small,nothing shows on the TV at all! The TV is recognized in the devices and everything just the duplicate display will not work,I haven't touched any display settings since I've had my laptop. Any fixes/people with the same problem who have solutions?

Is there any way to receive email and social notifications on windows 8.1

Windows 8.1

I just wanted to ask whether there is any way to receive Hotmail, Gmail, Yahoo, Skype, Facebook, Twitter notifications. I don't use the startup screen as I have a home pc and there is no need for me to enter my password every time I start my pc. Also I do not use the Windows 8 Start Screen and straight away jump to Desktop. Is there any app or windows setting that will notify me of new emails or facebook messages all at once without me having to check all of them individually?

hard to invoke the auto-hided taskbar after Windows 8.1 update 1

Windows 8.1

Hi guys, I have a Dell Venue 8 Pro and I installed the Windows 8.1 update 1 last night. Everything works well except that I find it is much harder to get the auto-hided taskbar. Before the update 1 I can easily got it by pressing the edge of the screen or letting the stylus aim there but now the taskbar could not appear no matter how I press the screen. I can only uncheck the auto-hide checkbox now. Is this a bug or some settings that I did not find can change the situation? Sincerely, Yuan

Unable to open region settings

Windows 8.1

I am trying to change my region settings and for some reason it will not open for me- not when I click on it or when I try to right click and choose open. I have even tried accessing by changing the options in the control panel from category settings to large icons and the same issue. All other options on the control panel will open- this is the only one that will not open. Is there a way to fix this?

Win8.1 cannot open control panel region

Windows 8.1

Hi All, I found that the "region" inside the control panel cannot be opened in desktop mode. However, there is no problem in Metro mode. I did the sfc /scannow without any error prompted, also tried to boot up the PC with microsoft softwares only but did not have a positive result. Would there be any solution to this problem? (Note: I do not want to recover the whole system since I have many softwares installed already) Thanks
