    Hey that's pretty cool guys, I don't know if anybody else has noticed this, other than Icha. Open your Metro Start Screen and press the spacebar. You'll get the old style unpin, resize, customize bar at the bottom. It will automatically checkmark your first tile but you can uncheck that or check mark more tiles just by right clicking them.

    Yes, that was an addition in the Update 1 to help mousers. Space bar will mark a tile checked and bring up the menu, then one can tab with keyboard for an option. Hitting spacebar will uncheck a tile as well. One can select multiple tiles also. Pretty neat.

    Welcome to Windows Eight Forums, Icha.

    One thing I notice though, at least on my PC. It doesn't check mark the tile I have highlighted with my mouse. I can mouse over a tile and see the border change color but that's not the tile that gets check marked when I press the spacebar. If I use the keyboard arrow keys it seems to work right though. Interesting.

    Yes. The pointer over the tile will highlight it, but not focus it just as icons on the desktop always been. One must right or left click to focus as always also. Tiles are simply"glorified" icons. It's nice they added the context menu just like icons.

That to me is just lazy. It's like if they were to say, "Oh yeah, we were going to finish PC Settings and have everything right there, but in the meantime, here's the Control Panel!"

    Bunch of hogwash.
    Cokie, calm down. So they added it for now. This continues to be a “transitional” OS. A bridge between the old and the new. Sooner or later they will get everything written in Modern/Metro. By 9 there will be no desktop app/portal. They are writing Office in the new now. Can you imagine the cost of writing all this code to do so? Millions and this takes a lot of time to implement.

    Here’s an exercise I do. When I get finished with Office or anything on the desktop, I’ll push and hold WinKey, push period key, then down arrow, and then release WinKey. Or drag and drop it with the mouse. By 9 we’ll be in our glory.

As the title says upon checking for Updates I am getting Codes 801901F7 or 80072EE2 or 80072EFD which I believe is a problem with connecting with the MS server. Have ran the Troubleshooters, Reset, cleared the Cache, SFC and DISM, all reporting no problems. No connection problems either.
