    Printing doesn't work in Irfanview on Windows 8 x64

    I can't get printing to work in Windows 8 x64 when using Irfanview. I've tried two computers and a virtual machine. I've already written the author about this and he wrote me back:
    Sorry, this is not a bug in IrfanView ... the print system is same
    and it works in all Windows versions (and IrfanView versions) since Windows 95.

    I don't believe that MS changed the print system just in Win8 to be
    not compatible with older versions ;-)
    => the problem is something else ... probably a problem in the printer driver.
    If some of you here use Irfanview could you try to print something from it? Its print dialog doesn't show up for me on Windows 8 x64. I'm using Irfanview 4.36.

    I've never used it before, but I downloaded it, and got it to work.
    I had to reset it to choose load from cassette, as it seemed to ask it to feed from rear... but it does work, with 8.1 x64

    Works for me. Just printed a photo. Are you on latest release 4.37?

    Everything is working fine now on all Win8 systems. I have no idea what happened.

Sounds odd, I know. But if I try to load up a Windows Explorer screen after I've closed and re-opened my laptop at any point post-startup, it doesn't work. Just a blank window and the blue loading circle next to my cursor. It also means that I can't double click a shortcut to load an...

My Windows Key doesn't work
I had been using the Windows key to switch back and forth from Metro to desktop. When I am in Metro, pressing it does nothing, but it works everywhere else. I simply click on the desktop icon, so it's no big deal, but is there a solution?
