    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.) But anyway .... Edge Canary (the latest release) does indeed run on all Windows 8.x platforms (except Windows RT...

    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 thought this might have been specific to Windows RT, since went and installed the latest November rollup. Crap! Now I wish I had left my installation alone. I may not be able to get my apps back. :(

    Solved thanks for 8.0

    If you were to use the Internet on this box, you can still update the OS until October 2023, so you're basically as secure as a Windows 7 or 8.1 user (but without all telemetry updates). However you can manually use these updates with Windows 8 as well. Windows 8 works very well.

    How do can I run 16-Bit programs on Windows 8.1?

    You say it's a 32-bit computer, and thus I assume you're running and x86 build of Windows 8.1? So what happens when you try to run the 16-bit Windows application? It should just run (unless there's some other compatibility issue). The virtualization options you're trying to avoid above, are...
