Corporations have no choice but to pay, the vast majority of home users don't. The apps you use most often are listed first for quick access, and you can choose whether to share with just one person, or with all of your contacts at once. I installed it into a virtual machine.

With a Microsoft account, I can start a project on one Windows 8 PC and finish it on another. Can you offer any assistance? They don't have any other way to force us to use they store! What is the fix for this please?

I did enjoy it on a single display however, its just like being forced to learn keyboard shortcuts, to get around easier, like hitting the windows key for the start menu.. I'll never use Metro. Not us. If you’ve seen what we’ve done with Windows Phone, this might look familiar.

For one more icon?! You can download Windows 8 App Troubleshooter from here.  It’s a Troubleshooting Pack Cabinet file. trackpad support is close to touch and essential. Does anyone know where I can get one?

Reply Julián says: February 29, 2012 at 10:58 am Downloading 🙂 i want to install it as principal OS. If you do, and not have any spelling errors than you can come back.

Despite the perceived image of Microsoft as a lumbering beast with bloated software that ships full of bugs, they have actually produced some fine software over the years.

Note: If you do an upgrade install using a language that's different from the one currently on your PC, you won't be able to keep programs or settings.
