    Oh? I just checked for updates and there wasn't one. I had a Flash Player update yesterday and the usual Defender ones. I thought we Americans came before the Brits, but I guess I'm mistaken.

    Did it update on your phone?
    Didn't get it through Windows Update I just went to my SkyDrive online and it told me it was changing, can't remember if I had to click something or not but it showed as OneDrive when I left the site. Just looked at my phone, which is a Nokia Lumia 520 Black, and that's showing as OneDrive and I didn't do anything to that so it updated itself.

    I went to the store looked up Onedrive, nothing there only skydrive, very weird
    On my windows 7 computer skydrive updated itself
    I opened SkyDrive on my phone yesterday and it indeed updated before my eyes within the app, not on the usual update page. It now says OneDrive. It hasn't updated on my Acer tower with 8.1. Strange.

    OK just seen where the confusion is, I said in my post that I'd gone to Skydrive online and been told about the change and then got it there, plus my Nokia Lumia Windows phone updated itself.

    My Notebook running 8.1 though is still showing as being Skydrive when I look in the library so that has not changed name yet which is the only one.

    Yes, I missed that key word "online".

    I would imagine PCs will change to OneDrive via an update this coming patch Tuesday.

    I saw that. It's like a store. Once we learn the new way they'll change it around on us. Keeps us on our toes I guess.

    While I'm here. I learned how to and took my first WP8 screenshot today. It's "phabulous"!

    Please hold down the applause.

KB2973544 is the one that supposedly forces windows 8 users to upgrade to 8.1. People who already have 8.1 probably didn't get this update, and I read that not all windows 8 users get this update, and it comes out in small batches at different times. I am not really looking for any help here as...
Hi folks: I'm into Day 3 of using Windows 8.1 with Update 1, and I'm pretty pleased with it. I'm not running into many limitations yet, and all my apps of choice have worked so far. I will still say that I prefer Vista from a visual perspective, and in its ability to customize the desktop, but...
Hi there. I decided to upgrade a few days ago to Windows 8 as I decided 25 wasn't much of a loss if I didn't like it. I wasn't too sure what to expect but I'm mostly presently surprised. The main big change that originally annoyed me when I first saw the early versions of Windows 8 was the...
It's been 2 days now since I completed my hellish install of Windows 8 (which, itself, took 2 days) and I'm now just getting round to playing with some of the features.

I'm directly copying this from a comment I left on an article that was discussing Windows 8; but as the title implies, this will probably be the last thread I start on here, because frankly, it seems that no matter what, Win8 haters are going to hate, regardless of whether they give the OS an...
First Thoughts about Windows 8 in General Support
This should probably be posted elsewhere on this forum, so apologies in advance. I've installed the 8250 CP version under VMWare Player and have been experimenting with it for a week or two. It supports most of my apps and the older ones I have to use VM XP to use anyway, since even Windows 7...
