Ed Grubermann: Good. Fark Windows 8. And now third-party retards are adopting Win 8's asinine design scheme.
noblewolf: One person responds that after he figured out how to use it, he is warming up to it, and you go all ape shiat on how everyone needs to do this
GoldSpider: After long denigrating Windiws 8, I'm actually starting to warm up to it now that I've tried using it once I figured out right-clicking on the "Windows" button on the Desktop.
Mumbler: My Windows 8.1 has not been updated since November, gets an error when I try.I've checked every single page on the internet and tried every possible solution offered.The only thing left to do is re-install Windows , and I really don't want to do that since I'd have to reinstall a lot of software. But I am concerned about virus patches. I'm hoping somehow this gets fixed on the server side and my updates start working. So this is not a good sign.
Abe Vigoda's Ghost: Flint Ironstag: Abe Vigoda's Ghost: jso2897: I installed a lot of updates yesterday, but it doesn't really look or act much different. If you click on the "start" symbol, you still get a completely incoherent page of stoopid tiles that blow up into full page soeak n' spell looking apps. It's pretty much the same shiat. Still garbage.I just picked up a new notebook last week with Win 8.1.Installed Classic Shell. Went into the registry and added instructions to remove the annoying 'tips' bar that likes to pop out from the side and get in the way. Now it looks and behaves like Windows 7, but with faster boot times.People should not have to do things such as this to make a workable UI in a new, non-tablet computer.This is why Windows 8 is getting such a bad rap.The Charms bar? Disabling that is a Classic Shell setting, no need to go to the registry. 'Classic Menu Settings', 'Windows 8.1 Settings', 'Disable active corners', 'All'.[img.fark.net image 316x210]Nope. Could not get Classic Shell to get rid of these, even with the hot corners disabled.
