    Hi Brink... I just wanted to say a very BIG thank you for all your advice and patience. I did manage to open the new user account on the PC and eventually did manage to transfer everything by sugarsync.

    Much appreciated

    Hello Pinklotus,

    That option in OPTION TWO of the tutorial is only available in Windows 8.1 and not Windows 8. For your version, you would only be able to do OPTION THREE.

    If you like, you could upgrade to or clean install the Windows 8.1 Preview, but the official final public release will not be until around October or so.

    Hope this helps,

    Pinklotus,

    Personally, I would recommend to just wait on the free final RTM version of Windows 8.1 to be released towards the end of year.

    This way you could just upgrade to it as per the red warning box at the top of tutorial in my above without losing anything.

    If you upgrade to the 8.1 preview now, then you wouldn't be able to keep your settings and apps when you upgraded to the final RTM 8.1 later.

    You could still use OPTION THREE in the tutorial on the first page here to remove Libraries from your navigation pane if you like though.

    You're almost there pinklotus. You just missed the second part of step 4 in Option Three.

    After you take ownership, you must then set permissions to "Allow" your account "Full control" of the key before it will allow you to modify the Attributes DWORD data value.

    I used option 3 and managed to remove library
    but now when I log into windows it goes straight to desktop and skip start menu
    is it because i removed library?
    can i make it to go to start menu first , without adding library again?

    This tutorial wouldn't have any affect on how or what Windows 8 starts up to.

    Did you install any 3rd party program that added a Start Menu to Windows 8 that may have an option to select to startup to the Start screen or desktop?
