    If you move your mouse to the left side of the screen(towards the edge),you can click the previous page.

    There seem to be permissions issues. Despite disabling UAC completely and being admin etc., I still get the do you want to...(though without the screen dimming) on a lot of files, I need to click on Continue to complete the action. This is very annoying. Looks like there are additional security settings.

    I enabled in-built admin account to end this annoyance.
    Security is also somewhat different in file properties and registry keys - a bit more tedious to take ownership and control but still possible.

    Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 32 bit/ Windows 8.1 64 bit


    Just read this thread and I'm still undecided about whether I'm going to bother with 8. After the excitement when 7 was being released I just can't get the feel for this one and may just keep checking in here to see how it's working out before deciding whether to take the plunge.

    I'm still too tied up playing with my smartphone and there's only so many hours in the day.

    Nor me. They could very easily make Metro an option on a Win 7 style start menu (one you could remove if it annoyed you).

    I agreed, until I found a post today on MDL, that mentioned renaming the shsxs.dll file to shsxs.dll.old.
    I did and now I have the Win7 type START menu, and some of the Metro goodies, like dual monitor feature, Explorer ribbon.

    Needless to say, but I will anyway - there maybe be some risk involved with this. So far so good for me. I dual boot 7 and 8, keeping up to date backups of both - a less risky this way.
