    It is supposed to be more "touch friendly".

    btw, for anyone who is interested:

    Navigate to:
    Code:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\TaskUI
    And create 32-bit value, with value "1"

    And now, open TaskUI.exe

    It doesn't give as much info as regular taskmgr - not yet anyway .

    Jav - any reason you are sending people to another 8 forum?

    Don't know how to get glcnd to work yet in this build - any ideas?

    removed the link, it was just to give credit to the original finder. (at the end of the day it is not my finding...)

    Sadly, still no news on glcnd

    Here you go
    To activate the new PDF reader
    1. Navigate to "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Applets\Paint\Capabilities"
    2.Create a string value and call it "CLSID" and set its value to "{D3E34B21-9D75-101A-8C3D-00AA001A1652}"
    4.Open glcnd.exe

    That should work

    Have already tried that, just opens a blank Reader window. Hitting Ctrl+O opens the file selection dialog, but am not able to see any pdf.

    OK, managed to open something.

    Looks like the reader is buggy, has trouble opening more complicated pdfs.

    Not only does the reader not open certain pdf's (I havent figured out the pattern yet), it doesnt open multipaged pdf's completely- just the first few pages.
