    You plan to keep doing vinyl cutting even when you retire ? Hobby or business ?
    In any case, looks like XP retired before you.

    Hi there
    Just a (profitable) hobby -- often cut tracks from people's iTunes stuff !! (now that's going full circle -- digital back to analog) and make custom record sleeves and labels . Demand for Vinyl though seems to be increasing a lot these days.

    I could get new gear - but as I said the stuff I have works perfectly -- the difficulty I had in the past was getting enough blanks but they are easy to get now. It's quite amusing also listening to some modern music cut on a 10 inch 78 RPM vinyl and played on a wind up gramophone !!!.

    Cheers

    If you are set to autoupdate it should be, just in case check what updates you have installed and maybe try to force looking for updates.
    I have checked many upon many times, I never got it...I will just manually install it.

    Ah, THAT Vinyl.... I have a collection of several hundreds of old LPs + tens of 78s, few years ago I spent whole winter digitizing, cleaning , naming and collecting them on DVDs.
    Still have a proffy Lenco turntable I used in late '60s, early '70s when I worked as DJ back than. 1974, when I left for Canada, I had 2500 LP, and I don't know how many singles, some of them very (now) rare studio, pre release with white, hand written labels but my brother sold them off in the times of crisis beginning 1990s. Also have an AKAI reel to reel 4 channel tape recorder I used for compiling a weekly two hour radio show.

    Did you recently upgrade to 8.1 though the Windows Store? I do believe the Store Upgrade now includes update 1.

    I think the Store App gets pinned by default, that's a dead giveaway. Anyway thanks for confirming that.

    Not on the taskbar, Start menu only but can be pinned to taskbar manually (right click menu).

    It was for me. Also from Managing the Store app pin to the Taskbar added in the Windows 8.1 Update - Ask the Directory Services Team - Site Home - TechNet Blogs
    As mentioned earlier, the Store Icon is pinned to the Taskbar at first logon after Windows 8.1 Update is applied.

    Don't have many (actually only 2 for now) but none are on any taskbar. Each one has that option though.
