    @Juliet68, need a lot more info. When you say you cannot sign into W8, do you mean your Username and PW don't work? Or that W8 is gone and you only have W10? Did you upgrade from W8 to W10? Are you trying to revert back to W8? It's unclear what your issue is. Can you please be more specific and give us as much detail of what you have done as you can, and what you are trying to do. Thanks.

    And fill in as much of your system specs as you can. The more info we have, the better someone can help. Refer to this: System Specs - Fill in at Ten Forums - Windows 10 Forums

    There is a forum just for Windows 8, quite similar to this one but dedicated to Windows 8. There is also a Windows 7 version.

    Well, guess what? Last night I went into my Norton360 Identity Safe, found Windows 8 Forums listed but clicking on it gave me a bunch of junk info that made no sense whatsoever. But, today, I went into my Norton Safe and somehow it was fixed. I was able to include it in my "Favorites Bar", clicked on it a few minutes ago and low-and-behold I got my Windows 8 Forums to appear and works. What a great feeling. Thank you again for responding to my post and our help.
