    Do you have the Developer Tool version? I have two versions and only the Tool version has it (by default??).

    I've been directly connected to my router for a while now so I haven't even turned on my Wi-Fi in Win 8 8102 yet.

    I'll try later and report back soon.

    EDIT: On Wi-Fi, I get it .. cool. I hadn't checked that out yet. Thanks, aem!

    And for xxxdannyxxx, I, too did not install the version with the tools (I don't have a double layer DVD burner or a USB stick big enough to do it).

    You don't need no double layer DVD or no USB stick, you can install the Tools version from within Windows, after unzipping the iso. Check Brink's Tutorial.

    Seems that feature is available as standard and a nice little addition it is too
