    Can Windows 8.1 be installed as legacy MBR? (Non-UEFI)

    My XP machine can't read a 3TB GPT disk. It's missing, much like a NTFS drive was to Windows ME.

    New Windows XP data transfer tool & end of support notices

    Tried opening .VHD files in Win 7 today. I go to Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Computer Management, Storage, click on Disk Management and let it load then, right click on Disk Management and select Attach VHD. I created a .VHD file of my Win XP desktop computer from an Acronis 2014...

    New Windows XP data transfer tool & end of support notices

    I'm noticing the free laplink software at the Microsoft site does not include the feature to transfer your programs. I guess you have to pay laplink for that feature and skip the freebie.

    Solved I just wore out the rubber on my wireless Microsoft Mouse

    I guess the Microsoft Wireless Mobile Mouse 4000 has Flip 3D in Windows 7, which I've never heard of, but here's a video about that. Just found I don't need a mouse to do the Flip-3D magic. Flip 3D in Windows 7 and Windows Vista

    I'll probably try for the Microsoft Wireless Mobile Mouse 3500 (Cyan Blue) for $15 at the physical Staples store if I can find it today.

    Solved I just wore out the rubber on my wireless Microsoft Mouse

    I had to get my lighted magnifying glass out to read the bottom of the mouse for small print that read Microsoft wireless mouse 2000. It uses 2 AA rechargeable batteries, that need to be recharged every couple of months for my use. There might be a couple on e-bay for $20, but I'm starting to...

    I just wore out the rubber of the wheel on my wireless Microsoft Mouse. Where do I get a new Microsoft Wireless Mouse? It came with a wireless keyboard & dongle, but I just need the new mouse.

    New Windows 8.1 requirements strand some users on 8

    Some of us are getting fatal errors when trying to install the Win 8.1 upgrade from Win 8.0. I'm sure many are furious and don't have the patience to attempt to install Win 8.1 another time.

    Despite Imminent Retirement, More Users Move to Windows XP

    I'm getting tired of my Android updating 100 apps everytime I turn it on. Does the Microsoft Store update their apps constantly so you can't do anything for half an hour while it updates every time you turn on your machine?

    Despite Imminent Retirement, More Users Move to Windows XP

    There's a few programs that work fine in XP but either don't work or work like crap in Win 7. I upgraded to Win 7 Pro last year so I could get those going in XP Mode. Apparently I'm gonna have to set my firewall to block the internet in XP Mode next month. How do I do that?

    Splashtop Streamer doesn't give me remote "touch" on Win 8

    I tried Windows 8 of my desktop from my tablet using Splashtop Streamer. I couldn't get the touch-swipe to work, I'm only able to move the cursor. Is there a checkbox I'm supposed to check to get touch to work from a remote tablet?

    8.1 install error 0xC1900101-0x40019

    8.1 install error 0xC1900101-0x40019 and 0x80070652 and Windows 8.1 installation failed and reverted back to Windows 8.0 I'm lucky the computer even came back to life. I have an Intel HD Graphics 4000 video card, so the review from ADRStudio replied on February 15, 2014 on page 18 could...

    GPT Win 8 Dual boot installation killed Win 7 MBR boot opt

    I've had Win 7 Pro on my laptop for over a year. I installed a 2nd hard drive to it recently and today I installed Windows 8 Pro on the 2nd hard drive. It's been a roller coaster of good & bad luck. The first install went fine, until I tried to install the Windows 8.1 upgrade from the Windows...
