Unable To See "Keep Apps" Option In Windows 8 RTM

Computer Type PC/Desktop System Manufacturer/Model Number Custom self built OS 64-bit Windows 10 CPU Intel i7-3930K 3.2 Ghz (O/C to 4 Ghz) Motherboard ASRock X79 Extreme11 Memory 32 GB (8GBx4) G.SKILL those Post-It Notes were important, now they are lost. Want to join a domain or see what you're on in Win7? There is no fix, and no driver will install.

Do you want to remove it? Reply Andrew November 24, 2015 at 7:56 pm # No, I think people are just early adopters and grinds through the pain. The constant f*k-ups and unwanted changes do not make for a stable work environment. Windows will reign until and unless the alternatives get as much support as it does.

Login or register to post comments JakeLatz on Jun 27, 2013 My Surface RT is doing well into the upgrade process (already at 27% of "Setting Up") but my Desktop is Reply ch100 November 27, 2015 at 10:02 pm # A possible reason is that some people just go through the issues and fix them, get experience and improve their knowledge down I keep it open a LOT. Why do I even need to worry about having two different kinds of apps?

But for now, I can say: on TechNet etc, ISOs HAVE been released, e.g. What does “apps” mean? Woohoo! If you’re using Windows 8, you can use the Windows Store upgrader or download and then install from an ISO download.

Instead, there was another option named "Keep Personal Files". Sign up to get updates via email.

shutting down in 7 (Win, right arrow, Enter) to 8 (Ctrl+Alt+Del, Shift+Tab, Shift+Tab, Enter, up arrow, up arrow, Enter), or searching the control panel (in 7: Win, type, results available immediately; Ready to roll?

This isn't about moving cheese, this is about just exceptionally poor UX. Allowed update preserving files and programs on one PC but not on another. The Start Screen can be moved as well. It it would be a cheap way to get virtually a touch screen without having to buy a real touch screen ...

People struggled like hell to understand the Start menu when it was introduced.... And that includes re-installing Windows with the option set to keep all personal files, apps and settings too.I only realised because the tile was missing on the Start Screen, no notification While they have long not been on the side of privacy or consumers, Microsoft have at least tried to maintain a degree of trust as a computing institution. It turned out, for me at least, it was both.  Hurray!  Apparently,  if you update from anything other than a clean installation of 8.0 RTM, you will not get the option

Nobody needs a stupid troll.Not that I normally read/respond to any comment more than a couple of lines, or have a clue what using Windows 8 is like - too many You can even ALT-F4 from the Desktop if you like. The user is required to RTFM, which suggests there's a problem with the usability of the software and not the user.Pete JohnsonSunday, 26 August 2012 12:14:45 [email protected], who asks: "...Does 'CoreInfo' this content The Start Screen can be moved as well."The Start screen actually moves with single page app as well, probably the single most annoying thing in win8 for me.

Compare eg. Is "old hen makes good broth" actually used in English? They look so touch friendly, and here I am looking at that eye candy on my non-touch laptop...

For example Networks popup or ability to change user account picture.

So 2 down and 10 to go.... The scroll bar stays on the screen in I.E (the auto-hide was my biggest annoyance before)and I can finally customize my start screen. latish sehgalSaturday, 25 August 2012 14:44:28 UTCI don't get it - the whole point of Windows was _discoverability_ and _affordances_. This makes Win8 just as good (although slightly less user friendly, imo).Jason K.

No visual indicator. What isn't happening is that all of those updates is bundled into one push and then this installed onto the system with the philosophy of the bundler (like altering privacy settings And now I had a new hypothesis: installed language packs could prevent keeping my apps, thus I removed all but US English on my Windows 8 Enterprise laptop and rebooted (important!). have a peek at these guys Pretty much nobody on the Mac seriously questions the "one icon per application" philosophy anymore, because it makes plenty of sense.

Not notification! But on now and working fine. Installed Windows 10 and then updated to the latest version. Looking for a replacement for win+q now that windows took it over!Chris KinsmanMonday, 27 August 2012 08:49:21 UTCLaugh at me, but to me it feels like when a car producer moves

Perhaps we need WINDOWS 11 !P.S.
