  • This has been available (except for the maximize part) for some time now in 8.1.  Just as you've been able to see Modern apps on the taskbar for some time and see the task bar while using Modern ...
  • Define "improvement".  IE 11 is certainly stable and fast on my computers (12 isn't out yet).  Can't imagine why you'd go with 9 unless you have very specific requirements (such as 'only runs in ...
  • Considering your average words per reply on this forum (and I can only imagine that it's worse in your emails), it is completely unsurprising that you would find a phone/tablet unacceptable. Person ...
  • Even better.
  • You can also go to the "Settings" charm (the ones that come up on the righthand side of the screen when you move to the right corners, OR via Win+C) and there is a power option there.  Also, in ...
  • There ARE even smaller options for the Start Screen.  If all my icons were of the smallest size I could fit well over 300 without the need to scroll Sure.  I'd absolutely agree that there is more ...
  • Yes, that's because Windows 8 works almost exactly like Windows 7.  Which really makes you wonder, why all the whining? Again, I realize that people have been running different program launchers on ...
  • And Windows 8 is more efficient with keyboard and mouse than previous versions anyway.  On my "large screen" I can fit my 15 or so most used programs on my taskbar (leaving some space for those I ...
  • I understood perfectly.  My theory is that you are using a trackpad and moving your finger from off the pad on the right when this occurs.  This simulates a "swipe in" that on touch enabled Win8 ...
  • I personally don't find that they get in the way too much, especially since 8.1 where you now have to move to the corner and then up/down along the right edge to bring them up. That said, the only ...
  • You should probably stop moving your cursor to the left by swiping in from the right edge then.  Or, even better, fix your touchpad settings.
  • Replied in iCloud
    From what I have read, this wasn't so much a case of phishing but instead, someone taking advantage of the ability to take infinite guesses at iCloud passwords and security questions and, coupled ...
  • You are either completely misunderstanding or purposefully misusing the term "Type 'A' personality". The classic Type A is someone who is "ambitious, rigidly organized, highly status-conscious, ...
  • Replied in iCloud
    Apple (and most other tech companies) also likes to simply introduce features such as this as opt out features. Most people simply set their tech up with whatever default settings are there. It is ...
  • Replied in iCloud
    Have YOU considered that they perhaps deleted the photos from their phones but were not aware they had been automatically backed up in the cloud? As for Sean's analogy, yes, if I had compromising ...
  • Ducking the question again.  How bout I phrase it more simply. What is the demonym you use for a person who practices the religion of Judiasm? Your answer need only contain one word.
  • I'm still curious.  What do you call a person who practices Judaism?  What demonym would you apply?  Those who practice Christianity are "Christians", those who practice Islam are "Islamic", those ...
  • Well, the OP hardly gave enough information to diagnose such a problem.  That said, I'd be inclined to guess that it has something to do with XP settings (networking was always a pain back in the ...
  • How many radios have you purchased that came tuned to exactly your favorite station?  How many desk chairs have come prepackaged to exactly your prefered height? Windows comes set such that it's ...
  • Oh, I agree.  While they aren't my favorite, it is nice to have them available.  I just get tired of them (apparently) representing like 80% of the craft market. Interesting.  Honestly, I've rather ...
