The start button does make a comeback, sort of, in Windows 8.1 but it's still not enough to satisfy the die-hard 'I got Windows 8 but miss Windows 7' brigade. Not least as when you click the Windows 8.1 start button it doesn't pop up the old folder-structured start menu that many people miss so much, but instead it just takes you back to the start screen which those same folk have such a dislike of. Of course, if you right click the start button in Windows 8.1 it does produce a start menu of sorts, with one-click access to …

The purpose of this short and sweet tutorial is equally concise: how to get the original look and feel of the Google Chrome web browser back after installing on a Windows 8 computer. Having recently been forced into buying a new laptop, I finally took the plunge and decided to start using Windows 8 on a daily basis. In fact I upgraded the Windows 8 OS that came with my Lenovo Y510P laptop to Windows 8.1 Pro, and am happy enough with it apart from a few small UI niggles which I will be addressing in a series of brief …

Hi, I'm not sure if this is the correct section to post my question in, but since my problem refers to xaml scripting I guess so. I added a listview in my win store app from which the user can choose among several elements and click the one she wants to expand in another box. The problem is that when you click and therefore highlight an item, its name is kinda cut off showing part of the first letter and than the others (for example, if you see Æþelstan and click on it, it'll only show Eþelstan). I tried to …

One of the oldest technology truisms must be that you only realise the importance of backing up your systems after disaster strikes. This is especially true if you have no backups to turn to. There are, thankfully, few excuses aside from sheer laziness not to backup your data these days; be that to a separate data directory (not much use if your hard drive dies), a separate hard drive (better, but not much help if the computer is stolen or lost), a removable drive (better yet, as it can be taken away from the computer itself) and now 'the cloud' …

When it comes to web browsers, my general rule of thumb is that the latest version is usually the most secure and this is certainly the case with Internet Explorer. However, when I started using Internet Explorer 11 on my new Windows 8.1 Pro laptop I soon discovered that latest doesn't always mean greatest in terms of usability. If you have read my "[How to return the resize buttons to Google Chrome](http://www.daniweb.com/hardware-and-software/microsoft-windows/windows-vista-and-windows-7-8/tutorials/470978/windows-8-how-to-get-your-google-chrome-resize-buttons-back)" tutorial, you will appreciate that Windows 8 doesn't always give you the UI experience that you are expecting, or that you want. Such was the case when I …

I have a D-Link router which is connected to my internet router via a Powerline adapter (PLA). Both my internet router and my D-Link router is running Wi-fi (D-Link 802.11n and my internet router 802.11b). I have a PC with Windows 8 Pro connected to the D-Link router. But unfortunately the PLA-adapter does loses connection now and then, and so I'm wondering if there is some way to set up a wireless adapter on my Windows PC, configure it to connect to the internet router, and make it so that when the PLA-connection breaks down the wireless connection seamlessly takes …

Hello Community, I was just wondering what this url is "https://fbcdn-photos-d-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-ash3/hellocdn.html?v=1" for some reason on start-up my computer will open this url not all the time but occasionally. It doesn't do anything it just gives my a blank page, the HTTPS certificate is in affect so I don't thing it's a dodgy website (I hope it isn't). I'm running Trend Micro Titanium Maximum Security and that hasn't picked it up as a bad website, I've also scanned the URL using the Trend Micro url scanner and the Norton url scanner and both have said it's an "OK" website. I have …

Is there any way I can get Flash Player installed on the new Metro-style browser for Windows Developer Preview a.k.a "Windows 8"? Kinda need it because that's what I do on a daily basis! I still have Windows 7 but would prefer to use Windows DP as it stands.
