    Solved 8.1 change nework profile from public to private

    Looks there is also no longer an easy ability to forget this network option as well. They would've been an easy way to disconnect and then pick whether to allow sharing on re-connect. Now it seems you will have to delete networks via netsh and/or registry xml files

    ugh Microsoft dumbed downed the wireless settings again. Can't even right click on the network any more to change the settings. Thanks for this thread though to see where it got buried to.

    Any way to get control panel settings to appear in search?

    With all these new settings added to pc settings it seems if you search for any setting that has been added to this app only the app will show up as an option when searching for a setting. For example if you type mouse the only things you can click on will open the pc settings app. The old...

    what makes you think that? you could update and then do a refresh and it would produce the same results. so why would 8.1 not work the same as 8 with the option to install without saving anything

    automatically upgraded to Windows 8.1 for free

    They have already done that. There was an update a while back that describes an action similar to what you are describing. I hope that since this update will be download through the store and not windows update the full download will be available and can be clean installed

    Warning! Users will have to reinstall all apps...

    It's weird that they will offer the preview so easily through the store and potentially cause all these problems. One would think they would make it a little more tech savvy to preview 8.1 and require an iso download and only a clean install
