    Solved Factory install borked, no product key. What now?

    Brother's new laptop has a 750GB drive, he wanted to partition it into two equal halves. All went well, and everything appeared to be a success. Until he re-booted. And of course it wouldn't. Repair attempts all failed. It wouldn't perform any of the reset or refresh options nor would...

    Huge crowded All Apps screen? A Tip.

    I've noticed many comments relating to the All Apps screen being too large with too many icons/tiles, meaning the user has to scroll for miles to get to the right-hand end. This turns many off using it, instead of the Start screen, as a Start menu, despite it being arguably far superior...

    Solved Win-key + PrintScreen... Broken?

    Although it appears to work (screen dims briefly), there's no sign of any screenshot in Libraries, or indeed anywhere else. Is it broken, or is it just me? Doing it the 'old' way via MS Paint still works. Wenda.

    The Perfect Win 8/WP8 Test Case.....

    This is going to be very interesting... and will probably end up being more of a blog than a topic. But here goes... WARNING: Some may find this a bit long, but I'll try to keep it short. (EDIT: I failed...:cry: ) Yesterday, a friend decided to upgrade both his computer and his phone...

    Wenda is a happy girl....

    My new Android tab died. Well, not quite, it still worked, but lost its touch facility down one edge of the screen.The main side if you are using it as an e-book reader, as I do. Still worked, but you had to hurl it around like a steering-wheel to get the icons into a 'possie' where...

    Solved This is probably silly, but....

    Some time ago, I changed this forum's display font to Arial. Now, with an image restore, it has reverted to the default font, and I'll be blowed if I can recall where I changed it. Any suggestions? Wenda.

    For Experienced Users Only....

    For experienced users who hate Metro... All you need is Windows Explorer/File Explorer/File Manager. Combine that with an elevated command line, you needn't ever use Metro OR the desktop. NOT for novices, but we ran Win 3x that way, back in the day, (only way you could get...

    Steam games.

    If I was to buy a Steam game from a brick & mortar store, I realise that I must activate the game online. BUT.... My question is, do I need to be online to actually PLAY the game, once activated? Because if so, I won't be purchasing the games. I was looking at a version of CoD, and...

    A sad farewell to an old friend.

    This afternoon, I bid a sad last farewell to an old friend. I've just removed my loved and much-modified Win 8 CP installation from my second machine before it expired, and replaced it with a system image of the machine's original and legal Win 7 Ult SP1 setup. My first experience with...

    Older games on Windows 8.

    I've just done a clean installation of Windows 8, and have been re-installing my games. I've read a few comments about older games not working under Windows 8, specifically <DX9 and openGL games. This is by no means a comprehensive list, obviously, but all these games will work on Windows 8...

    This Is It....

    Tomorrow is the Big Day. I will be buying Win 8 Pro and doing a clean install. I'm going to miss the W8RP eye-candy, but someone will work out how to put it back. I will be offline for a few daze, so can I take this opportuniy to wish you all a great New Year? Back with Windows 8 in...
