I don't mean auto login process as boot up, I've already enabled this on my offline account for Windows 8.1 but instead I mean after boot up auto login and then I sign out, I am then required to...

    Windows 10 Available on July 29

    Just a thought is Micro$oft working with the NSA on Windows 10 free upgrades? Seems very suspicious to me that all Windows 7/8/8.1 users retail or OEM get a free upgrade to Windows 10 in the first year, that's basically 50% of OS market share if all Windows 7/8/8.1 users upgrade to Windows 10...

    Windows 10 Available on July 29

    I think I'll wait until just be before the first free year upgrade ends to update, this way most if not all drivers will be mature and bug free by and possibly a Windows 10 service pack might come out fixing bugs and any compatibility problems with the initial release of the OS. Coming from...

    Solved Intel Rapid Storage Technology (pre-OS) driver installatio

    Just install the driver and not the full software and you'll be fine. Personally I find Intel's RST (driver only) is faster than Windows default SATA driver especially with SATA 300/600 speeds and SSD's, the default MS AHCI driver comes from Vista (yes they still use the same old MS AHCI...

    Windows 8.1 with Fast Startup Enabled Hangs Occasionally

    Windows 8 is more forgiving with drivers and software being based off Windows 7 SP1 with a newer kernel updated for the addition of Metro UI. Early betas of Windows 8 looked pretty much identical to Windows 7 with Start Menu and Aero Glass still intact either by default or enabled through...

    Windows 8.1 with Fast Startup Enabled Hangs Occasionally

    I got a newer version of Lenovo's Energy Management installed on my system (Lenovo ACPI Power Controller in Device Manager), Windows 8.1 with Update 1 now recognizes that my laptop does not support Fast Startup and automatically disables it regardless of whether I turn on or off Fast Startup in...

    @ brotherboard Charms top right corner can be disabled via Task Bar properties in Windows 8.1 and charms bottom right corner is not as annoying in Windows 8.1 (default hover time has been increased) as it was in Windows 8 (practically no hover time) which showed up every time you wanted to...

    No Microsoft Start Menu for Windows 8 until 2015: Sources

    I don't mind waiting, this just means Microsoft has plans to bring another Update 3 to Windows 8.1 presumably 6 months after Update 2 in 2015 which translates to Windows 8.1 is getting a lot of love from Microsoft. Even at it's current state, Windows 8.1 with Update 1 is near perfect OS for...

    BSOD every day, error 0x000000a1

    If you had BSOD's since Windows 7 then it might be a hardware problem assuming your PC was made for Windows 7 and all the correct drivers were installed back then for Windows 7 and you did a clean install of Windows 8/8.1, Windows 8/8.1 is very picky on hardware and your PC's overall stability...

    BSOD every day, error 0x000000a1

    Most BSOD's I've experienced in Windows 8/8.1 comes from outdated drivers and incompatible crucial system software like a laptop's power management software from the vendor not programmed to run for Windows 8/8.1 especially on older hardware. I'm not ruling out the chance that your problem...

    Thanks Brink, The Map OneDrive in This PC in Windows 8.1 method is a bit too slow to sync on demand for me. There was small program as an alternative to OneDrive Desktop and the Map OneDrive in This PC in Windows 8.1 method that was developed since Windows 8.1 Preview for Windows 8.1 Desktop...

    W 8.1 update 1 on SSD - WIMBoot

    I've been searching heavily on WIMBoot withSSD's and apparently there's a performance trade off as expected, it would be too good to be true if there wasn't to save that much disk space especially for tablets and lower spaced SSD's. MY Digital Life Forums has a whole thread on WIMBoot and...

    I've been using Bing Search as my default Homepage ever since Windows and Metro UI Internet Explorer, it just feels right although Bing's search engine is still behind Google's IMHO.

    Microsoft Surface Pro 3 announcement

    That's the thing the 12" screen coupled with the keyboard attachment (which is another $130 I might add) and (U) series Haswell processors makes the Surface 3 Pro just that, though I have to say the tablet does look very nice. Where as the Asus T200 is just a tablet with a keyboard dock...

    China bans use of Microsoft's Windows 8 on government PCs

    I don't think they would be crying if all those copies of XP on government machines were pirated, I think they just don't want to pay for Windows 8; maybe a discount from Microsoft or the US making a large payment on Chinese loans might change their minds about upgrading all their government...
