Re: Has anyone successfully downgraded to Windows 7 from Windows 8/8.1?

In Electronics Talk 1412016176.937

The main problem is finding drivers for the hardware installed. Since I don't know the specs of your computer, I can't say for sure if there are Windows 7 drivers for you to download. If having tech support is important to you and installing Windows 7 will void the warranty, don't do it. Try installing the classic shell and see if it makes things better. One thing I learned early on, use the Windows key to get back to the desktop or tile page. Continue Reading

For me, this would be a HUGE UNDERTAKING, and I wouldn't do it without a very knowledgeable person right next to me. That said, I have some apps saved that I'd no doubt be better off without. If you installed the apps the first time, you can do it again. All you need to do is open the app store then select purchased, install the ones ... Continue Reading

 

Re: Desktop icons stay highlighted in Windows 8.1???

I found this doing a Google search: "I've been searching the Internet for quite a while now for an answer to this problem without success, which is why I finally posted my question on here. Can't believe that after all of this, I just found the solution moments ago. I never considered that it could possibly have anything to do with the theme I had selected from MS to use on my desktop, but since I couldn't find any other reason for this behavior, I thought I'd check out that possibility. So, I decided to put the theme back to the one originally installed by HP and, to my surprise, the ico... Continue Reading

I'm very unhappy with the update so far. I'm glad I waited until I returned from a vacation. If my iPad was this slow while I was gone, I'd be furious. Continue Reading

On 9/22/2014 Ford1224 said: I'd like to give my prior laptop to my daughter. I don't want to take it down to factory settings because there are programs I put on there that she would like to keep. How do I just remove the user data? I think the easiest way is to download, install and use CCleaner's erase free space feature. You delete all of the the files you want to remove, open CCleaner, go to tools then erase free space. It overwrites the free space making recovering the data difficult or impossible.

Re: Flash Device Stopped Working - Help!

This is why you should never use a flash drive as a backup. It's fine for a second or third copy but, never use it as your primary storage device. Continue Reading

 

Re: *** Mac users need to read this

In Electronics Talk 1410962886.08

I'm not updating to OS 8 until I return from my trip. Last year I made the mistake of updating the day before I left and never again. The changes were significant and not what I wanted while on a vacation. Continue Reading
