    Yes, what I figured out finally . . . I don't know why HP put the disclaimer I posted in their troubleshooting docs.

    While yes, the distinction between the OS and programs/applications has been around forever, the term 'apps' has come to mean something different in recent years, mostly with the advent of smart phones and then tablets. You know, "there's an app for that". It has come to mean a smaller, relatively focused, downloaded, sandboxed program, touch-centric, typically for an iDevice or Android device, and now Windows 8+.

    I don't think it's useful to call old-school Win32-API programs 'apps'. And although the term 'app' is obviously derived from'application', it really has a more specific meaning nowadays. Apple essentially invented the term as it is used today.

    This is not to say one type of executable is 'better', just recognizing the common usage of words.
    I hear ya. Word meanings change through time. e.g. Today "bad" means "good" with the correct expressions.

    Far as I know, Blu-Ray players should have that swirl icon on them on the door or front face panel. Easiest way I can think to tell.

    Does 10162 disable the option to install apps on different drives.??
    I upgraded from 10130, even reset the PC a couple of times..
    Still the option is disabled..!! (It was active in 10130).
    Is it disabled for everyone??

    Attachment 23383

    How can we turn the option On.??
    Just checked - disabled for me as well. Not sure how to enable it.

    Yes, you don't need to hack the registry unless you change the system-wide zoom to something other than 100%. I like mine at 125%, plus tweaking individual font sizes.
    I agree. I am interested, after all, in how do you find the HEX values for certain sizes? Is there an online calculator, for example?

    I just did it by trial and error. Or you could turn off system-wide zoom, use the available controls to set different font categories to different sizes, and go look at the registry to see what the hex codes are. I have found f1 to be 9 and ed to be 11, so maybe 2 units is a font size? And smaller number, larger font. Too weird.

    A calculator/converter likely won't help. I'm guessing you mean F1 = a 9 font size. F1 in hex = 241 in decimal.

    HEX > DEC

    0 > 0
    1 > 1
    2 > 2
    3 > 3
    4 > 4
    5 > 5
    6 > 6
    7 > 7
    8 > 8
    9 > 9
    A > 10
    B > 11
    C > 12
    D > 13
    E > 14
    F > 15
    10 > 16
    11 > 17
    BE > 190

    Remind me again just how popular Windows 8 and 8.1 are?
    Seems to me and the rest of the users out there that you are out on a limb.

    Windows 8.1 market share grows, Windows 7 slips, Windows 10 lurks • The Register
