    Windows 8.1 problem


    What happen with the "General" setting in the PC settings in Windows 8.1? It is
    in Windows 8. Several things require "General" setting to do things.

    Cant remember the General settings now, but maybe , from the Charms bar - Settings - Change settings?

    Hello Cryptokid, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    The individual "General" PC settings in Windows 8 are under different sections in PC settings in Windows 8.1 now. You'll just need to look around a bit more, but here's the locations for these below.


    Windows 8 PC settings Windows 8.1 PC settings
    General -> Time Time and language
    General -> App switching PC & devices -> Corners and edges
    General -> Spelling PC & devices -> Typing
    General -> Language Time and language -> Region & language
    General -> Available Storage Search and apps -> App sizes
    General -> Refresh your PC.... Update & recovery -> Recovery
    General -> Remove everything... (Reset) Update & recovery -> Recovery
    General -> Advanced startup Update & recovery -> Recovery
