If I knew someone on XP that wanted to get a new computer I would tell them to get a Mac, or rush and find a Windows 7 PC, or wait The fonts over there are so horrible (in all metro apps like mail, calendar,…etc.) P.S. But how does a smaller company or a new company get anyone to give their products a chance, when they can be basically trashed before they're even out. Installing a program? http://fusionphp.net/windows-8-1/windows-8-1-this-app-wasn-39-t-installed-windows-is-getting-your-windows-8-1-upgrade-ready.html
This feature can be overridden by the PC maker, and you can of course change this behavior as well: Open Taskbar and Navigation Properties, go to the Navigation pane, and uncheck Scaling Windows for smaller, cheaper devices 8 or so years ago, Microsoft responded to the netbook threat by creating a low-cost offering called Windows XP Starter Edition. YOU are funny Efon Wang Fixed and patches to feel more like Windows 7. I don't even miss the start menu, I just type in the start screen and can find everything that I need, WINDOWS 8.1 ROCKS. https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/15356/windows-8-install-update-kb-2919355
Dozerman That's what I've been screaming this whole time. This is the case with every aspect of our lives and a lot of it has to do with technology. You Keep all your Files If your PC is running Windows 7, your files, apps and settings will easily transfer to Windows 8.1 Pro. I have been a 'fluid' Windows user since 95.
Nice to be a student, and a graduate to have access to free stuff. Dan It's not a request, it's an order, go get yourself a new touchscreen right now! I like both updates not because I thought it made it easier for me to use my keyboard and mouse but because it just made it easier in general IceSage What It's your "logic" that is flawed and badly.
Terms and conditions apply. They should just shut up and realize that MS and Dan are from the future. especially with the vast resources that MS has. https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=42327 Maybe they could allow you to add libraries to the task bar with a jump list, or maybe they could extend the context menus feature.
Neither of them close the app. But, MS is nothing if not consistent… in not listening to its target market. LOL! Eric Bryner KB2919442 is the only one that comes up in Microsoft support page, and says March release on update day of March 11th.
Dan I wouldn't buy it, nor I would complain all over the internet about something that I don't need/want/use/have pixelstuff Yes. http://fusionphp.net/windows-8-1/windows-8-1-boot-times-triple-that-of-windows-8.html Why fix something that isn't broken in the first place? On Android -- it'd dead simple -- switch preferred keyboard ONE TIME to touch screen keyboard. For a hardware product like Surface, it might be appropriate to keep some features under wraps until release in an Apple-like way but for most products, the open tradition that was
To do this, go back to the Start menu and enter the Charms bar. The power and search buttons are a welcome addition along with the familiar X to close an app. Eric Bryner So glad I got a Dreamspark account. check my blog make windows shutdown or hibernate using the power button ffs.
Microsoft is hoping to have all of its users migrate to Windows 8.1, the latest version of its Windows operating system. It doesn't matter how small the tweak is. Or something.
There's been a lot of talk about this feature for some reason, but it's just a minor improvement over a feature that's been in IE for years. To continue receiving security updates, you need to make sure you're running the latest version of the OS. If this setting is configured as "Slate," the button will not appear, because it would be too easy to tap accidentally and tablet users are comfortable with the edge-based UIs. I stopped there (the article has instructions for setting up a completely traditional desktop), and I've found that I have my usual desktop back while also having quick access to the
That just means all these complaints about Windows 8/8.1 are pointless, and just words with nothing meant by them, but to just stir up people on a comment system. According to the first screenshots of the "new" Start Menu (which won't be back in 8.1 Update 1, btw.) its not "a reformatted version of the universally loathed Metro UI Start it sure makes using Mail a pain. http://fusionphp.net/windows-8-1/windows-8-1-application-windows-remain-in-the-background.html doesn't even know how to use a mouse.
More over, they're giving it away free. Eric Bryner Operator error, not doing something right, and system is telling you that, and you just can't understand what its telling you. And then there are always failures like twisting display laptops back in the day. So why would I use the "new user interface"?
Windows has always been open to improvements, it's time people stopped making small issues blow out of proportion. Why remove a feature that people already don't have to be effected by if they want to? Not good. Eric Bryner Tired of hearing about a start menu, this or that.
If that distinction sounds subtle, think of it this way: When you pin an app, it appears in the taskbar whether it's running or not. All 8.1 and Update 1 bring are minor tweaks. It could be the best one in the world, and still have complainers out there, and I think this site draws them in. You're a pretty awesome Admin!
And who really is the customer base? One of the most ridiculous new things in Windows 8.1 now is the routine to shutdown an App. In my view, they still haven't finished Windows 8. Windows 8.1 Update 1 Hands-On: http://youtu.be/gtJwfuzkBPY http://www.mrseb.co.uk/ Sebastian Anthony Cool, thanks :) I won't update the post just yet -- but may do it later.
Here's how to get it. Apart from that, it's pretty much the same as 7. I have often described Update 1 as "a major update," which it is in the sense that Microsoft is revving the core OS here, and that's something that, again, used to When you tap (or click) this notification, you are delivered to the Apps screen so you can then go find the app.
