    Solved Is there such a thing as an "In Place Upgrade" from W7 to W8.1?

    Classic Shell - Start menu and other Windows enhancements Yes it's no longer activley developed, but it's nowhere near being "behind" in terms of what you need for Windows 8x.

    Good to see one more active Windows 8x user. I was worried when Brink was initially starting to point you in that Windows 10 direction. I'm glad you perservered and stayed with Windows 8.1 After you install "Classic Shell", you basically have a Windows 7-like experience.

    Solved Please close my account

    This brings up a concern to me, since I still run Windows 8 (very happily I might add), and I'd still like to see a users resource for it. But lately, it appears that more subject regarding Windows 10 appear on this forum. I can't believe the Windows Mail integration thread still gets as much...

    ESR 68 File/Save Dialog Box Hangs Firefox

    I posted this on the MozillaZine forum, and while it only seems to happen with Firefox ESR v68, there could be something Windows-related that I'm missing. In which case, I thought I'd share my issue with you all. I'm running Firefox ESR 68.2.0 x64 using Windows 8 x64. This issue has happened...

    Microsoft Edge on Windows 8 AND Windows 8.1

    Wow! I'm so shocked at the big news that DOESN'T make headlines over here (only in the respect that such a forum should be about getting the most out of Windows 8 and Windows 8.1.)

    Windows Store will not Open

    My issue is now that I can't install Bing Wikipedia Browser because it was removed from the store. Now I wish I didn't reset my Surface tablet (doh!). I'm wondering if anyone has the AppX package for this app. :(

    Windows Store will not Open

    I wonder if you have the AppX package on your system. If you go to C:\Users\[Your User Name]\AppData\Local\Micorosft\Packages, is there a folder that contains "wstore" there?

    Windows Store will not Open

    I can't believe there hasn't been a response on this. I've tried three other Windows RT and 8x forums, all with no response. I wonder if the Windows Store has now shut out Windows 8.1 Edit ..... Tried overnight. I am able to enter using a local account. I will post back if the Windows Store...
