    Windows 8 Release Preview User Interface?


    Well, I was sifting through some old files and I stumbled across a screenshot I had taken when I was using the release preview, and, honesty, I like the RP user interface a lot more. I looked to see if I could find any themes that brought it back, but I could not find any. So I was wondering, are there any themes that bring the RP user interface back, or is there a way to just re-enable it that I am overlooking?

    Thanks.

    Yes, it's this:
    Windows 8 Release Preview theme for Windows 8 RTM | Winaero
    Should do the trick.

    Or if you still have the original ISO, extract the files from the theme folder in: sources\install.wim\..\Windows\Resources\Themes

Greetings, I currently have Windows 8 Release Preview, it is my main OS. I have many programs,files,settings,etc. My question is when the final version of Windows 8 comes out will I be able to upgrade to that version from my current version (Windows 8 Release Preview). What I mean by upgrade...
My sound used to work in the consumer preview fine but since I upgraded to the Release Preview I need the volume max and headphones in to hear anything. Any help appreciated. If more info is needed just ask.
