That's a pretty huge change -- there was a lot more going on than just a bigger full screen app window thing that you first saw when you booted in. Hi, What was the exact notification that was displayed in Windows store? Why did they push the Start menu back? This should protect people from all those out there. Step 15: Reboot the surface. Microsoft is apparently working on a prototype operating system called Windows Cloud. I would suggest you to perform a System restore to revert the recent changes.
I won't bother to be verbose but, will touch on a couple of points as concisely as possible. Windows 7 was a polished and fixed-up version of Windows Vista — hopefully Windows 9 will be an improved version of Windows 8. The additional problem was that, not only were desktop programs theoretically slowed down because they were now running in what we were told was a desktop app based on top of the Metro environment, but Metro programs were similarly theoretically slowed down because unlike desktop apps they couldn't work with files directly, they had to call the new Metro file structure which would then call the file for them. That's a pretty huge change -- there was a lot more going on than just a bigger full screen app window thing that you first saw when you booted in. Users have been asking for this ever since it disappeared in Windows 8. But Microsoft is clearly done with Windows 8. Regarding the start menu though, Windows 10 doesn't really give you anything you can't already get with the likes of Classic Start which is free or Start8.
Basically, other than the Metro screen being shoved into the Start menu, there's nothing new. The Start button will be a tad bit different on touch devices, but no details were given. That might be ok for Apple who only represents about 4% of all gaming platforms according to Valve's Steam survey and just barely 20% of all browsing experience judging by how many websites are hit by Safari, and most of those are probably iPhones and not desktop Macs , but for Windows, with their much greater audience size, they couldn't get away with telling their customers that they didn't know jack. Alright, so I got a permanent solution for the Windows Update searching disaster! Not on anything substantial, mind you, but how do you feel about the Metro screen being moved to the Start menu on the desktop instead? It was bad advertising and Microsoft did a bad job of communicating what changes they were making and why people should want to embrace those changes. So i installed the update and now my computer is so slow! I guess this reversion to something that long had been standard in Windows had to wait for the so-revolutionary-it-had-to-skip-a-version-number Windows 10. Metro apps on the Start menu arrange themselves horizontally by default.
Maybe that's why the technical preview is so stable. Yes, you can turn them back on. Us: Do you have that now? Win 10 is not a sequential step from 8. It's a Tech Preview designed to allow techies and enthusiasts to give feedback on the new features included in this build, as such this preview isn't stable and is prone to crash which therefore means that consumers shouldn't be using it. This is a consumer preview.
According to new details , Microsoft will roll out another update to Windows 8. Update: It looks like Windows 8. There were plenty of other things that seemed like additional barriers to apps that would make them ever so much slower than desktop programs not to mention the thought of having to pay Microsoft for every program released and whether or not it was true, that was the impression that was given. Metro apps on the Start menu arrange themselves horizontally by default. I can't and it is darn tough to see why anyone would. Windows 7 was just 6. Microsoft started working on 'Threshold' around the time 8 was released, if not before.
Microsoft is still in love with horizontal scrolling, despite that practice being a big no-no in web development, Microsoft somehow thinks we'll welcome it on the desktop. A lot has been done in 10 for Enterprise but, aside from that. It's not too late for them to reverse - None of the Metro apps are useful at this point, and honestly if they scrolled vertically instead of horizontally they could be much more useful across all devices - yes even tablets and phones. The update formerly known as Windows 8. Once you have installed the Windows 8. Microsoft is still in love with horizontal scrolling, despite that practice being a big no-no in web development, Microsoft somehow thinks we'll welcome it on the desktop. Us: How does this qualify as a completely new version again? A Consumer Preview will come along later when most, if not all, of the features that will be in the final release are implemented.
You can now update your Surface directly via Windows Update with no more issues. Thus one can have a cleaner, neater, more organized and less cluttered Desktop experience. Us: How does this qualify as a completely new version again? Until now, there is still no official response with the solution from Microsoft yet. Microsoft would have been listening to their customers and addressing the biggest remaining complaint with Windows 8. Microsoft's official answer was that they knew more than the customer did. For example, Microsoft says that Windows 10 has the best security ever. The truth is that, while Windows 8.
Step 3: Search for updates, after 30m-1h you will see a firmware update, press install without modifying the update list. Should Windows 9 be offered for free? Even this menu isn't strictly new: it's hidden in Windows 8 press and hold the Windows key and press X to open it. Did the computer come pre-installed with Windows 8. Microsoft: No, but we've added some drop shadows that we didn't have before! Microsoft: No, it's really different, we promise! Microsoft was hyping Update 2 at one point, promising it would bring the return of the Start menu to Windows 8. Again, we must stress that this is a huge rumor.
You need to right-click the icon to bring up a Start Menu, with more familiar quick links to Task Manager, Control Panel and Shut Down. Until then, I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided and that's the lamp of experience. Each Desktop created can contain related items, windows of the same 'family'; even, to the point that groups that may require different log-in info can live together simultaneously. People can be funny about things like this. Basically, other than the Metro screen being shoved into the Start menu, there's nothing new. All that important interface-fixing work will happen in Windows 9.
