    Windows 8 Store Won't Open

    I gave up. Fortunately I cloned my original hard and put it back in my PC. Then updated it, then cloned it back to the faster hard drive and finally upgraded to 8.1. :eek:

    Windows 8 Store Won't Open

    NOPE. Found errors and fixed them but no change to the Windows Store. I still need Fiddler software to be able to open the store. As a sideline, I don't know how long this has been an issue because of not using the Metro Apps. But last Sunday I installed the Pro Version of MALWAREBYTES and...

    Accessories Desktop Context Menu - Create in Windows 8

    So I have done it twice. As the graphic shows, I have the Windows Accessories in my context menu, it can be highlighted but nothing happens or drops down. I have not gone into my regedit yet. It's not critical. But it always concerns me when some simple little alteration doesn't work as intended.

    Accessories Desktop Context Menu - Create in Windows 8

    Nice but, I only get the Windows Accessories with the right arrow/carrot thing. Click on it nothing happens. I used the download.

    Solved It can't be done! W8 clone to factory

    FINALLY!:dinesh: This tutorial WINS. I really worked! I cannot believe it took me a week on & off of trial and error and fresh installs, etc. The one constant that kept it intact was preserving my original hard drive untouched especially the original Recovery Partition. THANK YOU THEOG. PARAGON...

    Solved It can't be done! W8 clone to factory

    Prove me wrong. Please. But I have spent enormous time (wasted) on trying to clone an Asus 750GB HDD to a Seagate 750GB SSD+HDD Hybrid. I've tried numerous free programs & various BIOS settings and have failed everytime. My simple goal was to take this original hard drive and just clone it to...

    How to get pre-installed windows 8 on new hard drive

    Re-image Next attempt semi-failed. I choose to use the Recovey DVD I had made to attempt an Advance Startup. Well when I chose to RESET is asked for a copy of Windows 8. No option to pick a Recovery Source. So I stuck a USB Flash drive in with another Windows 8 I have and that worked...

    W8-created recovery disk restore back to resized system?

    I got a Lenovo ideapad that I planned to return before it arrived. I booted it up to check it out but I thought about trying to make sure there was no evidence that I did this. I misunderstood the RESET MY PC button and did no backup but I pushed the button. Well, it booted up a BRICK. Nothing...
