Re: Windows 8.2 Threshold is Coming!

I already have the weather shortcut on my desktop, that is all I need. I never go to the Start/App pages.

Thanks bud, again I am not interested in getting Metro apps on the taskbar, just the weather app on my desktop which I have been using since I got Win8.1.

BTW, there are several new and nice keyboard shortcut keys for Win8.1 using the Windows Key + [...]

Re: Windows 8.2 Threshold is Coming!

FVB, here is a snapshot I took of my desktop [Windows Key + PrtSc].

It saves it automatically to: My Pictures/Screenshot folder.

This pic shows the Metro weather app. on my desktop.

Screenshot (4).jpg

BTW, I made the desktop background screen say Window 8 lol. I edited my old Win7 desktop background.

I took a look at the Charms bar/Settings when I first got 8.1 but I haven't used Charms since. I guess I'm not a fitting in with 8.1 too nicely lol.

There is a way to disable all the things Win 8.1 if you are interested including Charms, the 4 corners, etc. I saw a lengthy guide to returning 8.1 to Win7 if anybody is interested.

I am golden with the way things are now with Stardock software. When Win8.2 arrives I will jump on it.

Re: Windows 8.2 Threshold is Coming!

Another thing, some of the apps on the start menu are cloud based and won't run unless you open an MS account which I have not done.
