    BBC Iplayer / Sky Go etc Popout Mode doesn't work anymore

    Hi there
    I've been using BBC Iplayer, Sky GO and other TV / Radio live streaming apps -- they usually give you an option as well as Full screen mode (works fine) to play in a re-sizable popout window --quite useful especially if you can move it to a second screen.

    Doesn't work in W8 with IE10. Works fine in W7 with IE10. Listening to James Bond 50th anniversary concert -- great music and songs from all the films!! but can't play it in a separate popout any more. On my W7 machine - works fine.

    The Full screen mode works fine as does the web "Mode" but the separate popout just does NOTHING.

    (Screenshot enc -- the Middle button of the group of 3 on the main screen is the one that activates "Play in separate window").

"Add or Remove Programs" doesn´t work anymore (in Metro)
Hi, I had an issue with the general user folder name, which was shown as "Alex_000". Although this was a cosmetic issue only, I wanted to change this to "Alex". I successfully managed this by changing about 50 entries in the registry (via regedit). So fine so good.

Split screen doesn't work in Windows 8.1 metro mode.
I was initially very excited to hear that windows 8.1 allowed users to split the screen in any ratio they want (not just 80:20) in metro mode. However, no third-party apps seem to be compatible with this feature. Only Microsoft apps will expand to any ratios other than 80% or 20%. All third party...

Hello there. The title says it all. I used to open music files on double click with the Music App installed in Windows. I liked that. But now it doesn't do that anymore, it just shows me empty crap when I'm offline and doesn't play automatically anymore. Why? They changed something after an...
