I installed it last night and kinda played with it a bit, then my daughter got sick so I couldn't really get into it. From what I have seen so far it is exactly what I needed when I was looking for a DVD maker alternative. Just watch your install or it'll try to install some toolbars and other crap, so don't just go all willy nilly hitting next

I want to burn an AVI file to a disc so that I can play it in my DVD player...The program has to be free as I have no money to spend
I use Media Player Classic (MPC Classic) as a DVD player. Someone will provide an answer for you. Do you want to create a DVD menu and chapters? Or just burn an AVI to a disk? You want to create a DVD from an AVI? I do not know of any free open source DVD creators that are compatible with 8. I am sure they exist. There are several that are not free. Do you have imaging software, like Acronis? All I can suggest is, before doing many trial installations of DVD makers from your online searches, make an image of your system to restore after you find one that works, otherwise your system may get littered with stuff.

Taking any particular day on the calendar app and 'lifting' the detail into the email app, either directly into an email to send, or to copy/paste in some way into an email. It would need to be all of the 'detail' in the...

Alternatives to changing brightness? Hi! I have a desktop with Windows 8 pro installed. I am using an external monitor with a brand name I am not familiar with (it has a "w" with 3 dots at the top). Also, I can change the brightness through the settings but it has some bands going slowly up the screen and it kind of distracts me....
Alternatives for Xbox Music? Which player app do you use? Somehow I do not like the Xbox Music App. It is quite slow sometimes, and I have to click around a lot to navigate my huge music collection. Might work well with smaller archives. For my tablet I need a touch friendly player, so only Store Apps are an option.
First I tried the "VLC" Beta. But...

Please help - App Crashing - Alternatives? Hello everyone,
I have a Windows 8 Tablet, I got this tablet to assist in my communication. The app I was using was .Txt Viewer Pro
The app was very simple, you opened a .txt notepad file and the App would read it out. This meant I could load files that said things like
"I am lost, please...
Context Menu Alternatives? Despite what everyone says,
I disagree that a desktop enviroment can't be made "touch friendly"
All it needs is:
1) a "long-press" to replace "right-click"
2) a "Graphical button grid" to replace the "text menu"
(think Android 4.0)
