    Has Anyone Noticed These Before??

    OK, I had the Metro on my WDP disabled using Brink's tutorial, that made it somehow easier for me to use the normal, non-Metro Control Panel and then I saw there these.

    When I looked at the Programs and Features, then Turn Windows Features On or Off, there was apparently Hyper-V Support but it was disabled by default. I enabled it then it began to appear on the search bar when I looked for it. How do I use it? I did not even know it was included on WDP.

    There was also this 16-bit Application Support thingy. What 16 bit applications do I test with that?

    Windows 10 Pro 64-bit

    Is it possible they forgot to discard it during the compilation, who knows?

    Windows 8 Build 8250

    Hyper-V is pretty much fully functional within Windows 8 DP (I've been testing/using Hyper-V in Win8 since September) ... however, it's disabled by default for a few reasons. I've found it doesn't play well with other virtualization technologies (VMware Workstation won't install if Hyper-V is enabled, for example). It also isn't necessary for the average user who will probably never need virtualization.

    The 16-bit app support, though it seems odd, is actually for businesses who still use 16-bit applications. It's weird, but they still do exist and being that Microsoft is huge in legacy support, they wanted to virtualize 16-bit support ... soon we'll see the same thing with 32-bit apps as well. Also, this 16-bit support won't be available in the 64-bit WDP, only the 32-bit (as long as Microsoft follows the same suit they did with Windows Server x64 and Windows x64). I'm guessing you are using 32-bit?

So.. something I just noticed with 8.1, you can actually run Metro apps on multiple screens now. Including split-screening each one. I have three monitors, and found I could drag metro apps to each screen and they would stay there, and run. On top of that, Metro apps no longer appear on...

Hello! I've got a question about windows 8.1, so I thought I would post it here. Yesterday I realized that my computer doesn't seem to know which edition of Windows its using. It's activated and seems to be working fine otherwise. Is this normal? :confused: 25788
