I see plastering the start screen with tons of tiles in groups the same as a messed up desktop.
There is no possibility that users will ever be able to use Windows, in every aspect, to its fullest potential.
The Update 2 will bring more features related to Microsoft's vision for dependency on Microsoft.
If you are referring to my cynical remark about knowing, the point was vague.
If the intention is to enjoy all aspects of what Microsoft offers by way of cloud services, or Live ID's so to speak,
then that requires an interest or need in doing so.
My reference to PowerShell is such that most users will never fully understand everything that Windows can do.
The complexity of the Operating System is interesting,
and there are books that exceed 1000 pages that have tried to explain it and how to use it.
So simply getting a setting from Microsoft sync does not equate with understanding much.
But I would like to try and go back to 812 as an update.
It will bring some good things, but the live tile desktop start menu is pointless if you have no live tiles.
Is it ok to not have live tiles or not sign in with a Microsoft Account?
I am seeing the view from others that it is not.
Can I configure and run my system how I choose?
I have enjoyed posting, but once again, perhaps I should stop.
It was interesting, I was watching a few theoretical physicists on you tube try to explain data,
unfortunately most of the points were not recognized.
I have a talent to be upsetting and vague.
Even if I posted a 1000 word response, most would glaze over it or page down.
Granted, the option is slightly buried to create and login with only a local account.
People really should learn how to read and comprehend everything on a computer screen.
Part of using a PC and new tech is to talk to those who actually know.
When someones asks, "What does this error mean." and the error clearly states, access denied
do they really need me to explain it?
you might be surprised that the answer is yes, in detail.
I am all in favor of a PC Drivers license, if you do not have one, you can't even buy a PC.
Much less look at one.
If people wish to remain ignorant of the simplest tasks, they should not complain about their lot in life.
Just stop and think for a second how BORING it would be if everybody who switches on a Windows PC knew all there possibly is to know about Windows -- for starters we wouldn't have these forums -- also don't people enjoy sometimes being surprised that someone has put forward a great little trick or hint that very few knew existed even if they've been using Windows since almost before PC's existed.
We don't always agree -- that's how it should be - but nothing wrong with information etc etc. - Even at my advanced age I'm quite happy to try out new things or even learn a new way of doing old tasks -- just don't IMMEDIATELY give them up --try a few times --maybe a few days later each time --then if it's not for you that's fine -- like I for one will never warm to the Metro Tile screen for a PC although I could see myself using these if they a) could be launched from the desktop --I've posted elsewhere on this forum how to do that actually !! and b) they actually offered something useful instead of being basically games etc and written by one man and his dog under a dodgy railway arch premisis in a bad neighbourhood in town.
