Is there any other way to access the PC settings app besides changing your account picture from the start screen? I found the app in "Windows\ImmersiveControlPanel" but when I pin to start it doesn't do anything when I launch.
Why are they branding the metro UI as more productive, it takes more time to search for a program then it does in Windows 7.
Anyway, the old LH magic's back. I feel so free~
(also works with Apple laptop touchpads out of the box, which is p. cool.)
You have to open metro, move mouse all the way to the side then wait for the flaky side bar to fade in, move up and click on the flashlight.
You have to slam mouse into corner then start typing.
If you press the windows key, and start typing on screen at the start menu, (no mouse interaction at all), it will automatically throw up a search panel. If you absolutely refuse to try it yourself, don't go around disagreeing with a cold hard fact of how the operating system works.
Only if you are using a tablet (or device with no keyboard), will searching be any different.
Some people simply cannot be helped. If ignorance is bliss, then gasatakav cornered the market.
After a day of testing windows 8, my laptop won't boot up anymore. :/
Just installed it on a tablet pc (in the old stylus sense) with a multi-touch screen that seems to have been tossed in for a gimmick. Works just as advertised, although it's a bit bulky - best to prop it up on a cushion and use it lying down - and IE9's onscreen keyboard logic seems to hate the post editor.
Thank god that expensive boondoggle finally has a purpose now. And Microsoft's finally got some flair as well. The world is better when it's slightly more stylish.
Oh god rendering issues
I might triple-boot Windows 7, Windows 8 Consumer Preview and Ubuntu or Arch for the hell of it. I need a bigger flash drive though, I can't be bothered with DVDs, they're slow
Yeah, I didn't have Apps/Settings/Files in it but I had the rest, weird.
I guess this is what happens when you upgrade to a "incomplete" preview from a win7 installation
I just got invited into the windows feedback program
Got it on my 7 install and now I need to get it on my 8 install
im going to get microsoft office 2010 after 4 months (because 2007 pisses me off so god damn much)
Where is my goddamn minesweeper? :c
Can I get all those developer preview apps on consumer preview? I couldn't install developer preview but I could install consumer preview for some reason
And can I make the icons in the tiles from shortcuts bigger? It looks very dull like this
WHAT THEY REMOVED MINESWEEPER?!
WORST OS EVER!
*if the flash demos mean anything, of course
I just realized what this OS is absolutely perfect for
Use laptop normally, use full-on windows OS
Turn it into a tablet, enable metro, have easy to use touch-friendly enviroment
has anybody got AMD gpu drivers to work properly at all?
alright I've had enough of this shit, nothing fucking works. i'm rolling back to windows 7
Just booted a grody old W7 installation over - IE10 doesn't seem to be recognized as a Metro app, and the other Metro apps seem to freeze on the splash screen. Joy of all joys.
Got my first Blue Screen.
I still have no idea what you're talking about. Longhorn?
