    Solved Disabling AutoCorrect in Internet Explorer 11

    In theory, yes. It should be applied to IE11 as well. My experience, though, has dictated that it does not. It's quite ridiculous, really. You would expect it to turn off but every Microsoft program that uses it still uses it independed of the settings in Windows 8.1 you have set. I'm not...

    Solved Disabling AutoCorrect in Internet Explorer 11

    Okay, so after a while of Googling, I finally manage to remedy this myself. I'm posting this here so that this post may hopefully turn up on Google results to save people who had the same problem as I did some time. So basically, IE11, independent of what the settings for Windows 8.1 is, will...

    Protecting user files with File History

    Very nice. However, I'd like to cite this article here: A step back in time with Windows 8′s File History | Ars Technica Essentially, Shadow Copies are gone. The block-level, disk-wide, invisible, very useful feature we love since Vista is gone. Now it is replaced with a file-levelbackup...

    Windows 8 Metro Apps Need Close Buttons Too

    Exactly. Supsending it means suspending in RAM. More RAM usage=more battery power regardless. With laptops/smartphone/tablets you would want every single source of juice you can get.

    Hands On with Windows 8 Consumer Preview

    Hmmm not bad. It works nicely on dual monitors. Can play with metro on one and have a regular desktop on the other. Takes some getting used to, but meh. It's alright. Still preferring Win7 at the moment, Win8 reeks of things I hated about android--highly dependent on the internet for everything...

    UEFI (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface) - Install Windows 8 with

    @Dragorth, How do you know Windows 7 uses the BIOS VGA to boot since it's also capable of installing on a UEFI system? I actually made this tutorial after trying to install Windows 7 on UEFI knowing that the procedure would be the same on Win8 (install screenshots here are taken from Win7...

    UEFI (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface) - Install Windows 8 with

    I did some research on this. The fact that they keep calling their firmware EFI (without the U) bothers me since there is clearly a difference between UEFI and EFI. After some research, I'm lead to believe that it's not possible to boot Windows through UEFI on a Mac because Mac's don't have the...

    UEFI (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface) - Install Windows 8 with

    Hmm.. Which mac do you have, by any chance? Not the OS version, but the actual mac product? :) Just to add a couple of facts that I know that I'm trying to piece together in regards to your problem: For Windows: Can only boot from UEFI through a GPT disk on a UEFI 2.0 64-bit implemented...

    UEFI (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface) - Install Windows 8 with

    Strange, I remember being able to boot from an NTFS partition. Not a USB stick, but a seperate partition with the installation files on it and installed from there. Also, shouldn't you be able to skip the Product Key page anyway? And about failing to write to the mac boot sector, are you sure...

    Windows 8 Is Windows 6.2

    About time somebody pointed that out lol. Either way, I think this is proper since kernel wise, Win8 does not seem to be much different then Win7 aside from UI changes and some added features here and there. I'm guessing will see Windows NT 7.0 when the change seem very significant like from XP...

    Anyone with a single boot SSD on UEFI tests if win8 really boots fast?

    Woah nice boot time on the laptop. I knew dual-booting made it slower!! Hella slower--15 second slower lol. Either way, Win 8 does boot fast from a shutdown. One thing I noticed though, it "shutdowns" differently on a restart. I'm guessing it's performing an actual full one since it takes longer...
