    Force SuperFetch to NOT ignore SSD.

    Is there anyway to force SuperFetch in Windows 8.1 to not ignore SSD's? I like the way SuperFetch ran in Windows 7 on my SSD boot drive, it did not ignore the SSD and was more aggressive which made loading programs smoother if the program being loaded was already cached.

    Windows 8 Pagefile Management

    I just noticed Windows 8 pagefile management is different from Windows 7's. From fresh install of Windows 8 after all updates and drivers installed with 8GB ram, Windows 8 recommends 4505mb for pagefile which is just over half the size of memory installed on the system. And from a fresh...

    Windows Store and Xbox on Windows installed location?

    Hi Just wondering can games and apps purchased from Microsoft store for Windows 8 be installed in a different location or partition? I'm just wondering because this will effect the SSD size I'm getting for the OS as boot drive. Example: Windows 8 now has apps like Android with the Metro UI...

    I'm looking into buying a new laptop with Windows 8 tomorrow. Thing is the laptop comes with Windows 8 non Pro version. Can I still get the $14.99 upgrade to Pro option or is this only for Windows 7 computers? Would be sorta retarded if Microsoft is only offering this to Windows 7 computers...
