    Very annoying. Can only pin certain system programs

    Default Programs and Device Manager will allow me to 'pin to start screen' by right clicking them. But Mouse and Windows Defender do not. Power Options is just bleeding awkward, in that it will not let me right click and pin to start screen when I am right clickign on the pinned Power Options...

    Homegroup -Add or Remove from Navigation Pane in Windows 8

    Windows 8.1 update 1 here, option 2 to remove HomeGroup in Nav Pane when 'show all folders' is selected. Even after restarting Windows Explorer. Is there a fix for this? I have absolutely no use for HomeGroups and don't want it cluttering up my Navigation Pane. Thanks in advance :)

    every time i have to do a refresh I am reminded just how..

    Far microsoft has come from windows 8 to windows 8.1u1. - The integration of OneDrive into File Explorer. - Being able to snap apps to 50/50 instead of just 25 or 75 % of the screen. - ThisPC being a much better default location for File Explorer to open-up to, instead of Libraries, which I...

    Windows 8.1 Update 2 Confirmed

    I still think 8.1 update 1 / 8.1 update 2 is cumbersome and odd. It should be Windows 8.1, 8.2 and 8.3 etc.

    Surface or YouTube Problem?

    Did a refresh of my Surface Pro 1 device, taking it from Windows 8.1 Update 1 back to Windows 8. Installed Firefox 28 (before the Australis makeover). First thing I did was go to YT and played the linked-to video above (2K International Channel Trailer) using the HTML5 player with no...

    how to choose video thumbnail size in windows explorer?

    I don't mind if the thumbnails are square or rectangle, I'd just like them all to be the same as each other. Is there a way I can force the size of the video thumbnails to be the same?

    Solved windows store apps don't work after a restart and shutdown

    oh yeah, I should probably mention what I think caused the issue in the first place. I was experimenting with BlueStacks so that I could use some android apps on my surface pro 1. In order for BlueStacks to even start-up it needed to download the latest graphics update driver from Intel which it...

    Solved windows store apps don't work after a restart and shutdown

    wow that looks like a lot of troubleshooting steps. to be honest i'm quite an impatient person, after doing the steps in my opening post, and then further trying two system restores (both of which failed) and setting UAC back to default (after having set it to never notify previously), I just...

    Treat mouse input as touch input

    for firefox you can use the "grab and drag" addon, and could use it in office if you use office nline/office365/office cia skydrive integration.

    Oh Win8.1u1, you so crazy! (Modern Apps UI upgrade)

    1. The modern apps having the titlebar which allows us to press close in the corner messes with the Start Taskbar if you have it set to the top of the screen instead of the bottom. When you mouse up to the top with and try to drag the file down as normal to close it using the old mouse behaviour...

    Baffled by New UI

    The way I read the OP the TC already has Win8.1u1. Don't worry TC, the power button only appears on certain devices. I believe if your device is touchscreen enabled, it is classed as a 'mobile' device, and thus doesn't have the power button. The power button on the Start Screen is only set to...

    Trouble with Video Editing software

    Now that the freemake software has completed it gets even stranger. The resulting video file does not have a freemake video logo after each clip, only one at the end. So I'm not sure where the additional footage comes from (approximately 30mins), as the final video's length is 1hr 46mins. The...
