    Trackpad support in Win8

    Thanks, that was really helpful. I installed the drivers, and it's a lot better... but there are still strange things. Pinch-to-zoom in IE10-Metro is anything but smooth. And no two-finger scrolling works on the Start Screen at all... very strange.

    Configure POP3 ISP email acount?

    Well, no, the Post Office is actually fine except for a law the GOP passed a while ago that forces the Post Office to have fully funded 70 years of pension or something like that, unlike any other company, which is making it appear broke when it's not. But this is politics and stupid Republican...

    IE10 Metro Favorites?

    A 'pinned site' says to me a site that I've pinned to the taskbar or start screen. Which isn't what I want. I want "Favorites". Why would they change a name that everyone knows and that every browser users? It's completely unintuitive to me. I want "Favorite", and a "+" icon that would...

    IE10 Metro Favorites?

    I feel like an idiot, but where can I find the "Favorites" in IE10 Metro? I'm not talking about sites pinned to the taskbar or desktop... or "Frequently used sides"... but my list of favorites. I can't see how to add anything to favorites, how to see favorites, etc. And it doesn't seem to...

    Moving pointer to left corner not working.

    It happened a few more times for me last night... in a Metro App, and mouse pointer in the upper left did nothing. A little later it started working again (after switching to desktop and back I think). If there are no other apps running at all, at the very least, it should pop up with the...

    Windows Consumer Preview - Bugs and Annoyances

    Metro Scroll Bars when using trackpad or mouse: In applications like IE, where there is a long page to read, I like to park the mouse cursor over the scroll bar (or arrow at the bottom), and just click to page down (or line down) as I read. The problem with this is that in Windows 8 Metro, if...

    Changing Windows Live ID Name & Moving Multiple Tiles

    You can multi-select tiles by right-clicking them with the mouse, or doing a little "drag down" gesture on the tile with touch. Once you've multi-selected, you can use commands from the app bar to affect all of them, delete them all, or drag them to where you want them.

    Solved Where is the equivalent to Start/Search

    "That is the second time you are trying to tell me what's good for me." No, I'm not doing that at all. I'm ASKING YOU A QUESTION BECAUSE I'M CURIOUS. I'm not telling you anything. I'm ASKING. I don't want a tutorial. I'm just asking what it is that you're doing that these little-known...

    Moving pointer to left corner not working.

    I've experienced a few situations where the thumbnail didnt' pop up... once I was in mail, and the upper-left corner didn't work, but the lower left did. It was like that consistently for a while, and then it suddenly started working again. I haven't found any reproducable scenarios yet. It...

    All Tasks

    WHS, I'm just asking WHY you need that... I'm genuinely curious. What task is it you are trying to perform where you need to use all those "Shell" tricks? I've been aware of the tricks for a long time, and every time I've seen them I've thought "Oh, that's cool..." and then never used them...

    Solved Where is the equivalent to Start/Search

    Why do you feel you need to do that? Just curious. I've never ever used those features in Win7, and don't see any need to use them in Win8.

    All Tasks

    It's not the same, no, but it gives you pretty much everything you need. You're fighting too hard to make it like the old OS, I think. I can honestly say I've NEVER used that feature in Win7 (and I'm a developer and tech person). Between search and all apps and admin tools, you should have...

    Configure POP3 ISP email acount?

    I see options for Hotmail, Gmail, and Exchange... Is there any way to configure Yahoo mail, or my ISP's POP3 email server? I don't see any way after hunting around a bit. I still get most of my email via RoadRunner.

    "shell:startup" isn't an app. So yeah, no apps match your search. What are you trying to do??

    folders in metro?

    No. You can drag/drop tiles around to where you want. Or select a tile, and right-click, to make it large (rectangle) or small (square). You can create new groups as well. Zoom out (mouse to lower right corner) and you can move groups around. The closest you can come to a folder on the...
