    Solved Connecting with remote desktop problems

    Thanks Broe23, both are running pro but for the life of me I can't get them to connect and MS help really is vague and lacks specifics. I'll give Teamviewer a try and see how that works for me.

    Solved Connecting with remote desktop problems

    I've read several posts here and elsewhere and still can't seem to get this problem resolved. I have two computers running Windows 8.1 on my network, one is my main PC and the other is a HTPC in the living room. On the HTPC I am logged into a local account named Bob and I have a few programs...

    How often does the People Contact sync with google contact

    Finding the same problem here, made some changes to Google contacts and still hasn't been captured by the People app days later although it says it syncs each time I've opened it. To be honest, what I thought would be a very useful app when I first heard about it has become nearly unused by me...

    Solved Weather app not accurate?

    I marked it as solved because today it is working properly for some reason. If anyone else has this problem, just wait like I did and it will magically fix itself, or not.

    Solved Weather app not accurate?

    I noticed something while messing with this yesterday, the current temperature is always the same as the forecasted low for the day in question, so if the hi/low is 70/47, the current temp will show as 47. It also changes along with the forecast low, so it seems it's a problem with reading and...

    Solved Weather app not accurate?

    Time zone and time are up to date and accurate. When I just checked the app, it said refreshed at the current time and date, city is correct and even the forecast is correct, only the current temp seems stuck if that makes sense.

    Solved Weather app not accurate?

    Can't really point to a specific date where it seemed to quit working, but my weather app generally shows temperatures about 10-15 degrees colder than reality. Tried refreshing, changing my location and even uninstalled and reinstalled the app without success. Worse thing is going to bing...

    Windows 8.1 Update 1, PC Settings, PC and Devices crash

    I had several apps do this as well, but I just uninstalled them and then reinstalled them to get them working again, no new user account required.

    Windows 8.1 Update 1 ISOs Also Coming

    Ah, thanks for the clarification. This feature was actually the one I had looked forward to when the feature list was released but I suppose my view of how my OS should work and Microsoft's aren't on the same page.

    Windows 8.1 Update 1 ISOs Also Coming

    Ah, so the minimize and close buttons do the same thing basically. MS engineering at it's finest.

    Windows 8.1 Update 1 ISOs Also Coming

    Does the close button in the upper app toolbar actually close apps for anyone? I use it then open task manager to find them all sitting there eating up a ton of memory. I've actually come around to using a few apps, but the dragging them to the bottom of the page and waiting for them to flip...

    Solved News weather sport food and drink apps won't start.

    Was wondering if you could elaborate on a few things for me as I can't get the results you described. My problem app is Bing Food & Drink which will flash the loading screen for a moment then dump me back to the start screen. The app is still open though if you hover over the left side of the...

    How to stop apps from starting with Windows?

    I just ran the apps troubleshooter and it found a few things to fix and they haven't started on this restart so I'm crossing my fingers that worked.

    How to stop apps from starting with Windows?

    Well, can't say I'm too surprised to hear that considering MS thinks it knows what's best for me. Thanks for the help.

    How to stop apps from starting with Windows?

    Just noticed that the maps and reader apps launch themselves when I start my computer and run as background processes in task manager. There are no apps or any programs for that matter enabled in startup and I have not opened these apps so can anyone give me an idea how to prevent them from...
