    Help Tips - Enable or Disable in Windows 8.1

    It went away after a day. I haven't seen it since. Maybe it's timed for the initial update and once the user has visited the metro page it goes away after a day or so. This is just a guess, I'm not sure. But I haven't seen it again since the initial update.

    Nonsense display in new 8.1 Explorer tree

    Yea, I didn't get that either. I was scratching my head on that one. But I'm just living with it. Adapt and roll with it I say. But I think it may have had a hand in deleting my Itunes music. Fortunately I had it backed up and the whole folder structure was still there on my Win7 install.

    Kids can't use computers... & why it should worry you

    Sounds like huge amounts of job security for us to me. Although it seriously fascinates me how little effort too many people exhibit in even trying to troubleshoot an issue. Simple Google search would probably solve most of those simple little issues.

    What's the Point of Start Menu for NON Touch Screen PC?

    I still don't see any valid argument against the metro start screen other than emotion. I use Win7 at work and Win8 at home. Switch back and forth without my brain having a fit. Almost anything any one is doing will be on the desktop any way. If you need access to programs frequently then...
