Shut down tiles you can make yourself.
I've already done that. I have a Lock tile and a Shutdown tile on my Start Screen, and a Shutdown shortcut on my taskbar. I've swapped out the Metro IE Tile for the real IE too. There are some Metro Apps that I like but the Metro IE isn't one of them.
You can change the tile function.Originally Posted by alphanumeric, post: 7313, member: 152
OK that seems to work. I can remember playing with that setting but it didn't work for what I wanted at the time. I was trying to pin some websites to my Start Screen but they all opened in the Metro IE even with that option checked. Looks like misunderstood what it was for and what it does.
Oh, and FFS (ex-squeeze the French) dump this STUPID idea of tying Flash in with IE. What an effing DUMB!!!! idea. At least a quarter of my sites don't work properly, and it's a dead cert that it's behind RealPlayer's sudden inability to download most YouTube clips. And I keep getting 'Your Flash needs updating' ALL the time. NOT happy, Jan!!!
After doing a clean install, the possibility to migrate users/applications/settings from a previous version of Windows. Just like Apple OS X!
That would be genius!!!!!
You can already do some of that with the sync feature. If your logged in with a Windows Live ID you can sync your wallpaper, colors, Metro apps and tile layout etc. After a clean install when you log back in with the same live ID those settings can be synced to that PC.
I mean a real migration of all apps/applications/programs and system/user settings and not only some settings for the metro apps! But it's start!Originally Posted by alphanumeric, post: 7961, member: 152
Can't be done in Windows when doing a clean install. Especially when going up one OS version. 8 to 8.1 was a kernel change thus its a new OS.Originally Posted by Maverick, post: 7962, member: 161
Repeat Windows 7 and call it 9.
