This has happened before while running window 7 aswell but now windows 8 I't happens constantly with my current hardware setup.
Setup: I have 2 keyboards for my stationary PC. One wired that Always sits in front of the screen and one wireless that I bring to the tv when I want to use my computer there.
Each time I use the wireless now this happens, the windows key gets "stuck" like the there is hidden windows logo caps lock key. I know I really stressing the some badly written code with using a wireless keyboard but it has happened before when I ran windows 7 then only with the wired keyboard.

Trying to set my computer defaults to Microsoft so I can use my Microsoft email and send a webcam video. I went to the control panel and went into select computer defaults and changed it to Microsoft and hit okay. But then it said it was setting defaults in windows media player and when I went into my webcam to send my email it said it wasn't set up for email. So, why is it doing that? Does it take a few minutes to setup? - Rank: 106 - Votes: 0 - Views: 6 - Updated: 2014-07-17
Spent an hour with Lenovo help desk and they said Windows 8 is not compatible with memory cards. This can't be correct. Does anyone know how to make Photo Importer display in English? Not using a cord or camera or anything. Plug the card directly into my tower. - Rank: 115 - Votes: 0 - Views: 13 - Updated: 2014-07-11

I would like to use the File History feature of Windows 8 and so far it has been working fine. However, I have come across a scenario and need input on practicality for the following:
1. File History working well and keeping 3 month of file versions on external USB drive
2. System crashes and new HDD required
3. New Windows 8 system loaded on to HDD and all is up and running
4. Time to use File History for restore.... BUT
From what I understand you cannot "point" the new Windows 8 machine to use the external drive with previous File History. You will need to do a manual copy and paste from the external USB (by selecting the appropriate file in the File History directory on the USB drive).
The problem is, File History appends the date and time stamp, thus the file name changes. For example, MYDOC.DOC become MYDOC.DOC ((2013_04_04 18_27_46 UTC).
How do you remove the parenthesis from the file name when copying the file back to its original location or is File History not a "system restore" type utility. Whilst the parenthesis will not stop applications working (like WORD, OUTLOOK etc), it looks horrible and creates these long file names that is unwanted

After having bought a pc with Windows 8, I installed software and drivers for My Printer version 3.1.0 with mypr-win-3_1_0-ea11_2.exe.
The printing works well, but the scanning function does not work. Does anyone recognize this issue or knows how I can resolve this?

When connecting to the office from home with windows 8, wireless access and direct access my PC freezes up. When using a direct line from my router i have no problems. Working from the office with wireless also gives no problems. - Rank: 108 - Votes: 0 - Views: 7 - Updated: 2014-07-07
I purchased a used HP Pavilion desktop, and decided it would be best to reset the settings back to factory before I start using it. Unfortunately, I did so and then found I don't have the Windows 8 product key for it, and nor does the seller. The reset process is halfway through but I'm unsure how to proceed when I get to the part where it asks for the key. - Rank: 110 - Votes: 0 - Views: 9 - Updated: 2014-07-07
