    Silverlight


    As far as I know I never use the Silverlight. If I remove it on the control panel will any wild activities occur with the rest of W8.

    Thanks

    No, silverlite is a bit like JAVA. Some internet sites use it for their site's look.

    I placed a link to a specific MS article for a reason. Did you not use it and read it? What is the first phrase of the first sentence?

    Microsoft Silverlight is a free web-browser plug-in that enables interactive media experiences, rich business applications and immersive mobile apps.

    The no in my latest post stood for no, there will no wild activities occur with the rest of Windows 8.

    I did not mean to prove your post not right, i meant to confirm your post.

    Ok. A misunderstanding. I suggest you quote the member(s) your answering so there's no misunderstanding unless it's an immediate answer to the OP. Sometimes even then someone answers first.

    Anyhoo, you are correct in what you stated in that it is a tool for developing somewhat like Java.

    To answer the OP further > It is a plugin that a browser or immersive app may call for. You may uninstall it and if it is called for you will be asked if you want to install it. This was so for me with the NETFLIX Store app which uses it for videos.

    I was wrong in that it's not just a plugin for IE. It is used in other browsers and apps.
