    Hello fjk61011,

    Check to make sure that Windows 8 is set as the default OS to run at startup in each OS.

    (Windows 7)
    Default Operating System - Change Default Boot OS - Windows 7 Help Forums

    (Windows 8)
    Startup Options - Choose a Default OS to Run at Startup in Windows 8

    Afterwards, you should have the new boot menu. If not, then see if the tutorial below may help while in Windows 8.

    Startup Options - Enable or Disable in Windows 8

    Hope this helps for now,

Hello all. Decided to start a thread on having fun learning the Modern/Metro side of 8 and 8.1. It could be a question on how something is performed, a screenshot or snip of a feature, something you learned, or something of that nature. Whatever it may be. Use you creative imagination. Please...
This would really help me with reading at night. There are plenty of screen dimming utilities, but they don't carry over into Modern, only dimming the desktop. I was wondering if there's a way to dim the entire UI, maybe as a default option. Thanks.
If MS was so confident about the Metro why change the name to "Modern"? Frankly I despise the Metro UI (ON A DESKTOP OR LAPTOP) although it is perfect and actually GOOD for phones and tablets! MS should backtrack on the name change and continue to call the new mobile UI "Metro" I know...
