    I have checked everywhere online, and I haven't found a single explanation for this. I have 3 user accounts. 1. Administrator 2. initial user 3. new user So the initial user is the one you are forced to create when first setting up Windows 8.1. It's a local user meaning that I set it up...

    So the thing with the Surface Pro 3 is W8.1 Professional. And that means Windows 8 apps. Apps for W8 is the fastest growing line of software in history.

    How do you move icons from Start to Desktop?

    I like W8 interface alot, but certain things don't seem to work. Like normally, you could go into the Start menu, and copy/move/edit/delete icons. But In W8, I don't see any way of doing this. The only options they give you is to pin. So the "All Programs" Menu in W8 is the Apps menu. And...

    Solved Is Intel embedded GPU the same as a graphics card?

    Many game system requirements say that a discrete graphics card needs to be installed in order to play. For example, even Diablo 3 which isn't that intensive wouldn't play on my friend's desktop computer until he installed a nVidia graphics card. Then it played perfectly. Even though he has a...

    What's with the Windows Defender Updates?

    So the first thing I did with Surface Pro 3 was run all the updates. I would actually have to go back to the previous menu, and back into the update section to recheck for updates. All until I could reboot, and there were no more updates available. So ever since then, I have been getting new...

    iMovie = Apple is a better software company.

    Microsoft is a software company? Really? What about iMovie? Free from Apple. And what MS gives is Movie Maker? At its inception, Movie Maker was so bad, anybody who didn't know which company it came from would have easily said that this software developer needs to be in another business. Not...

    Solved How do you reset to default theme/configuration?

    So I created a brand new user in Windows 8 using my MSA. And I set it to set up as a new PC so that it wouldn't carry over themes or any settings from the previous computer.

    Solved Best W8 Firewall 2014?

    Since I'm back on W8, I'm looking into Firewalls again. Firewalls from MS don't make any sense. Because it will likely let anything from MS through the lines. And I don't want anything going through without asking for my permission first. I need something that is going to stop every single...

    Does anybody know any good firewall?

    I've tried Comodo in the past, but for some reason it just doesn't work. Like if any application is attempting to access the internet, it should let me know every single time, and ask me if I want to block, allow, always block, or always allow. Something of that sort. Yet with Comodo it seems...
