    Do you agree the Windows 8.1 Start Button is a Joke?

    Yup, I was hoping for a Windows 7 Start button so Windows 8.1 would be a desktop option for many of us. Hoping MS will change this in the GOLD version. -WS

    Five reasons Windows 8.1 is a winner

    @KarterJK I will add missing a better functional on-screen keyboard. Some of us need F5 F4 etc. Ugh! I also don't like how they change the app store, it was much better before. I hope MS tweaks this a lot more before the GOLD release. -WS

    Solved Am I activated or not?

    MS may be having issues or doing upgrades. I have had some web pages not display from microsoft.com and the (SysInternals) TechNet site was down with SQL server issues. I would wait a few hours and try again. -WS

    Hello everyone, I just found this super small program that puts the Start Orb on the task bar. All my testing it seems very well programmed. It is free too! I really miss the Start Orb in Windows 8 and this gives me the best of both worlds. www.classicstart8.com Enjoy -WS
