    Windows 8.1 RT Update 3 will be available in September

    Windows 8.1 should continue to see security patches through EOL but it's doubtful it will receive any more significant changes. It might get the Edge Browser? I'm in the Love Windows 8.1 camp. I see no problem with Windows 8.1 and think it's awesome, especially on my Windows tablets. I...

    How do I stop iTunes from launching when Windows starts?

    Never install it. I consider iTunes "bloatware' and is the main reason why I steer clear of any Apple products.

    who and why is anyone going for the free Win10 upgrade ?

    I would get it for my desktop computer but I am leery about putting on my Windows 8 tablet. Windows 8.1 works so well on my tablet I don't want to mess anything up. It's hard to imagine anything working better than 8.1 on a tablet, And I think I would miss the charms bar.

    Using a Touchscreen Monitor with a Touchscreen Laptop

    There is absolutely no reason why the second monitor would not work as a touch screen (either mirror mode or extended mode). Just be sure to follow the instructions that came with the monitor to hook it up. Sometimes there are extra cables like a USB cable to get the touch screen to work. I...

    Windows 8.1 RT Update 3 will be available in September

    Windows RT (and Windows RT 8.1) is available on several devices that run ARM processors. Standard Windows will not run on an ARM processor so this special version of Windows 8 was created to do just that and dubbed "Windows RT". You cannot run x86 apps on Windows RT. Just apps that are...

    Solved Help!

    One of the reasons this can happen is if the time and date are not properly set. I don't know about your region but here in the US all Windows 8 computers and tablets come with Pacific time as the default. We have to go in and manually change this if we are in a different time zone. Check to...

    disable "your windows license will expires soon" alert

    I believe you can still download a 90-day eval version. But, you would have to do a complete re-install. But, it will give you another 90 days. Try Windows 8.1 Enterprise | TechNet Evaluation Center

    GVoice (Google Voice) app quit working

    Yeah, I have 2 other Windows 8 computers and they both have the same problem. I suspect Google pulled support for the app. Does that mean they will refund my $1.99 I spent for it?

    Painless transfer to a new PC

    I have to admit, I had images of speaking with a Microsoft rep from India on the phone, crying and pleading and begging. But, that just wasn't the case. I have (had) a 5 year old PC that I upgraded to Windows 8 (and eventually 8.1) about 18 months ago. 6 months ago the motherboard quit on me...
