This is interesting indeed. I notice by right clicking on the Windows Defender, there is no way to pin it to Metro or the Taskbar. Is this something that one would expect to see in an update or shall we resign ourselves that this will not be changed. - Rank: 111 - Votes: 0 - Views: 10 - Updated: 2015-08-10
I would like to log out of app store so when I let others use my Windows 8 tablet, they can't buy apps without my permission. As it is right now, once I set up my account, anyone with access to my Windows 8 tablet can download any app they want. This prevents me from lending my tablets to family and friends which I do frequently. I let my niece and nephews play games or watch YouTube to keep them entertained. They are old enough that they know how to go to the app store and download stuff. - Rank: 110 - Votes: 0 - Views: 9 - Updated: 2015-08-10

In the metro design it is possible to do a Save as... of a document. It will allow the user to browse to a certain location.
How do I create new sub- folders in the metro-style file browser? - Rank: 140 - Votes: 0 - Views: 36 - Updated: 2015-08-07
I found that when I integrated my microsoft account with Windows 8 apps (particularly email), it hijacked all of my security settings. A sign that you have this issue is if you go to PC Settings -> Users and the change button under "Any user who has a password must enter it when waking this PC" is disabled out. This panel should also display some warning along the lines of this setting cannot be changed with the current security settings. - Rank: 111 - Votes: 0 - Views: 10 - Updated: 2015-08-05

Have a Thinkpad x120e; upgraded to Windows 8 last week and have tried EVERYTHING to get rid of this craptastic adaptive brightness.
The screen gets brighter on a white backdrop and slowly dims on darker images. I feel like I'm tripping when I'm reading articles online.
Yes, I've turned adaptive brightness off (battery and AC options). Yes, I've tried every power plan. Yes, I created my own power plan, through the Lenovo "power manager" and through Window's "control panel." Yes, I've optimized the display, I've updated the driver for the monitor. I've done everything. Even spent an hour chatting with Microsoft support (who basically said nothing is wrong and restart my laptop). I swear this thing is going out the window if I have to deal with the damn labile brightness. - Rank: 103 - Votes: 0 - Views: 3 - Updated: 2015-08-03
I updated my work computer and home computer from windows 8 to 8.1 via the app store, now both computers cannot print due to print spooler service not working, it says error 1721 not enough resources blah blah blah. i have tried starting the service via command line (net start spooler) and clicking start in the services tab in manage in pc properties. i have tried editing the registry like some people are suggesting in the web, deleting files in the printer folder in window/system32, uninstalling drivers (after removal reinstalling says cannot due to print spooler service not running). still cannot get the dam thing to work. starting to regret updating now. - Rank: 104 - Votes: 0 - Views: 4 - Updated: 2015-08-03

My keyboard keeps turning on the overwrite feature, but I can't figure out how it is happening. One minute stuff moves to the right when I'm inserting something, the next minute it is overwriting it instead. The INS key does not work at all to turn it off, but at times the keyboard seems to correct itself and go back to what I want it to do - move the type to the right - NOT overwrite it. This has been a major pain in the neck for me and googling it brings up all kinds of advice for ENabling it, even though I'm googling how to DISable it. This is a new computer and I hate it. I especially hate Windows 8! - Rank: 112 - Votes: 0 - Views: 12 - Updated: 2015-07-28
