    Couple Owns Two Similar Laptops that sees Changes Undone!

    Update: After conferring a few times to learn just what was going on and being seen the blame was placed the Get Windows 10 app icon seen on the Taskbar on some occasions while hidden at others for any number of reasons with the complaint being all this started when 10 came out? What was...

    Couple Owns Two Similar Laptops that sees Changes Undone!

    Here's a first while no Windows 10 app update has been a problem to this day. The two similar but not exact same model Toshiba laptops are running into the exact same problem however but under different circumstances. First both the father and mother of the two sons end up loaning their 8.1...

    Desktop or Start - When Sign in or Close apps in Windows 8

    One interesting thing I found when a friend wanted me to look over an All-in-One desktop model being a flat screen he upgraded from 7 to 8 Pro. As soon as I updated his Wi-Fi drivers for 8 since he was complaining a connection drop off with a landlord's SurfBoard SB 5120 modem I saw the onscreen...

    Emachines E525 Webcam driver won't work in windows 8 ?

    I'm afraid the only possible solution would be trying the 64bit 7 driver set to see if that will work on 8. As often the case the OEMs especially with any older models are typically fallen behind others at keeping up with the newest and latest version out. I waited a full year to see Vista x86...

    Desktop or Start - When Sign in or Close apps in Windows 8

    I would be looking at an 8.1 VM here to see what changes have been made in comparison to 8 itself. I just got everything back running including the ISP problem for the previous and now seem to have room for a few VMs it seems. :D

    Desktop or Start - When Sign in or Close apps in Windows 8

    It won't be doing me much good since the RP expired on VM already. In the recent drive wipe now I was found wasn't the main problem I was no longer with an 8 VM. I guess that leaves me out of the loop now.

    Solved USB 3 Hub Won't Function in USB 3 Mode

    Isn't it wonderful! Some years back the supposedly 2.0 devices faced similar issues at times when those always seemed to operate a bit slower then 2.0 likely being 1.1 orientated. I still have to look now to see what CyberPower has for 3.0 hubs however. That has been a reliable brand of hub...

    Solved USB 3 Hub Won't Function in USB 3 Mode

    That would be make a lot more sense as far as the firmware being too USB 2.0 likely seeing the same chipset in use on 2.0 hubs and now put into the new 3.0 products. They simply came up with an update rather then manufacture an updated chipset to save on costs.

    Windows 9

    FIOS, WiFi(still requiring a hard wired connection somewhere no less), and then there's always satellite connections! With satellite however they charge you for every page you visit! That's like getting a cell phone and paying for extra minutes as soon as you reach a set number like 250min. a...

    Windows 9

    Vista initially needed SP1 since there were a few bugs like not reporting the total amount of actual memory installed on a 32bit system as well as the problem of installing the 64bit with more then 2gb of memory installed. Often you had to remove all but 2gb to get the 64bit install to go on...

    Windows 9

    I suspect this is something new MS will be trying out as a way to add new things without a lot of problems when wanting to see not only OS fixes but new features added in. If this will preserve the existing programs files already installed it could be a much smoother ride to apply updates then...

    Windows 9

    With DisplayFusion, UltraMon, or some other similar program the "move" button is an option you see placed to the left of the minimise-maximise buttons on every window you open. I imagine the same would be seen for Metro apps also being opened in a windowed mode rather then the need to drag each...

    Windows 9

    That's great for you then! I knew about UltraMon long before taking a look at DisplayFusion when seeing that back in the XP days. But it wasn't until 7 came along I finally went on a dual display setup for the then brand new build since everything was planned out ahead of time to allow...

    Windows 9

    According to the initial information on 8 the Control Panel>Display optioons were improved for dual monitors in 8. But I still had to go with an 8 compatible version of DisplayFusion or UltraMon in order to get the smart bar to work. Since I paid the full price for both the 8 update came through...

    Windows 9

    What I am hoping MS rethinks about and finally realizes they have to do in order to see the next success like 7 brought in would further desktop development on the surface not just the core elements and stripping away existing features. Granted they might even come up with an actual working...

    Windows 9

    I'm afraid you won't be totally able to get around the likes and dislikes of Win 8 when going to talk about what comes next unfortunately just like people who hated Aero wonder what would be seen in 7 that no longer saw the Classic theme style and format. Now people will wonder about just what...

    Will 90 percent of users always hate Windows 8?

    Since the CP was seemingly better then the RP I suspect the retail is realizing more bugs that need to be addressed by MS! 8 so far has been unlike 7 in more ways then not! Even the 7 beta was more seemless with things in beta form then the finished 8 is? It shows 7 was the OS right out of the...

    Windows 9

    Modernization as far as seeing an updated desktop gui would be the direction MS needs to work in. 8 was a quick slap in the face with the RT gui designed specifically for the tablet platform. These are two totally different areas to begin with. The ModernMix while being a 3rd party app shows a...

    Windows 9

    Here's a piece of one blog where the author caught someone mentioning Win 9 and IE 11 in their MS resume'? Microsoft mention Windows 9 in a job ad for a Bing Software Development Engineer

    The Non-Touch Windows 8 Offers a Worse Experience than Win

    That's precisely what that is geared for over seeing a usable desktop interface showing they have put the real effort into Surface and foobar to the desktop user saying: "here some things you can buy!" slapping the long time supporter in the face is what the reaction is for most long time users...
