  • So how did the Win10 install go for you?

    Got booted out after I played my game for 5 minutes. Hence my other thread.

  • Stupid legitimate question.

    Mine works from the screenshot.  It doesn't work from the first page (as in, take you back to Edge... but that's just the behavior in non-tablet mode, in tablet mode the back arrow on the task bar does take me back to Edge).

    Back arrow on taskbar???? I only have start button and pinned apps. How do I add back button?

    When I view screenshots, I see a small "x" in the upper right corner of the image to close the screenshot. Also, there are thumbnails on the left side of the screenshot. If I click below the thumbnails (i.e. clicking outside of the main image), the screenshot "window" closes.

    I did not get it. I believe we are using different version of the Store App. Interestingly, if I make the Store App larger, the screenshot will become larger, but, once I get it to my 1080p resolution, it could not expend any further and exposed the game page underneath. I can click on the page underneath to close the screenshot overlay.

    Either way, it is annoying. If I already have the Store App open, I get to keep the back button on the title bar. But, if I just click on the link in Edge to open the Store App, the back button is disabled, which is not cool IMO.

    @magicalclick: How do you normally switch from app to app in Windows 8/8.1? Or why not just close the store app?


    Because after I clicked the link to see the game and view some screenshot, I want to read more about the game, such as reviews, instead of getting stuck in screenshots.

  • Stupid legitimate question.

    I was reading this article.



    And I click one of the game and view it on Store App. And then, I was looking at some screenshots in full screen. After that, how do I go Back???

    When i say go back, I mean go back to the Store App page that shows the game. One page before the screenshot page.

    I am trying to not do this.
    1) visit URL.
    2) Click show in Store App.
    3) click on screenshot.
    4) Close Store app.
    5) visit URL again.
    6) click show in Store App again.

    I am trying just go back without doing step 4.
  • I'm not happy with Windows 10 (details inside) - am I missing something?

    Just by the way Chrome gets covertly installed onto computers through installation of other programs should be reason enough to consider Chrome malware.

    I believe that's what happened to my mom's laptop. Likely Flash update, cuz my dad said he got it from his desktop through Flash/Acrobat update.

  • How to stream Xbox on windows 10 at work with RDP


    I guess you can map your RDP keyboard to controller. So you can control the controller on the other side. Then, map your control on your current PC to the keyboard.

    So it will be Controller > Keyboard > RDP > Keyboard > Controller.

    Anyway, it will be playing slideshow due RDP graphics.

    Google Chrome and its extensions? Well.... Yesterday my dad told me the laptop I gave to my mom was very slow recently. The internet was much slower than usual. He then, removed only two apps, GoogLe Chrome and Google Toolbar. After that, the laptop is fast again. So, one of them or both, are some kind of malware that slowed down the laptop.

    And as for Google Chrome Extensions, the top3 or top5 largest botnet are using Google Chrome Extensions to do DDoS attacks. Goes to show you how many PC installed Google Chrome Extensions are infected with malwares.

    MS already planned to support extensions on Edge, hopefully not as virus happy as Google Chrome Extensions.

    I will reserve judgement for now. Win10 did the following and I will at last give them some credit.

    1) window mode on WUPA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!! !!!! !!!!
    2) much much faster app startup. Slow Music is now fast Groove Music, the app start up rivals WMP. Meaning, I finally don't feel like I am forced to use WMP due to startup speed.
    3) Groove Music One Drive private music streaming is pretty awesome to me. And it plays offline.
    4) Groove Music is not slapping me with store.
    5) Mail, Calendar, People are working well so far.
    6) Start Menu with IT happy selections.

    I will reserve judgment for now. At least I did not have same amount of frustration compare to Win8.

  • WTF WIN10 auto update restart.

    The update appears to the a big one. Taking longer than normal especially I have ultra fast Crucial SSD. I guess this is the special RTM build. I will give them a pass just for today.
