    My Setup


    Finally got my start menu on my Windows 8.1 machine set up where I want it. If anyone has anymore customization suggestions let me know. I moved from Windows 7 to Windows 8.1 OEM Builders edition when I started building computer's this year.

    Thanks Bro! I have been messing with it quite a bit seen what all is different compared to older versions of Windows. I must say I like Windows 8.1. Can't wait to test drive Windows Threshold (9) when the preview release comes out using VMware. I haven't had to many issues moving over from 7 other than my validity sensor acts up everyone once and awhile and few bugs with with the sound card which I got worked out.
