    How the fuck am I supposed to close metro apps quickly short of going to the top left and right-clicking each one and picking "Close"
    I've just been using Alt+F4, I wish there was an easier way if there isn't already one that I don't know about.

    No I meant the thingamajig to select the OS you want to boot

    Edited:

    I wonder if we could get 4chan to spam the shit outta microsoft with "MAKE IT MORE NOT TOUCH FRIENDLY" and "ADD A START BUTTON, IT'S SO FUCKING EASY TO DO" feedback reports.
    That won't work either as it's a executable in Windows 8. (It's started after 8 is already booted)

    Grab the top of the app, drag it to the bottom.

    Yeah, I noticed how when you start Windows 7, it reverts back to the Standard bootloader, which is not too bad actually because the Windows 8 bootloader is very slow on my Computer. (Probably because Win8 is not installed onto the SSD)

    Edit:
    Also it's seems there is some Kind of autocorrection build into this, how do I get rid of it?

    Ah thanks, I kind of oversaw that.

    The more I use Windows 8, the more I get comfortable with it. I think I might really consider upgrading to it when it comes out.

    I like using the start screen on my laptop but not my desktop. Just seems nicer for some reason.
    I feel the same way. Maybe it is because a laptop is more like a tablet? Even the crappy worn out touch pad in my laptop feels better to use in Windows 8 than a mouse.

    Trying to sign into the live app.. all I get it 'You're signing in with an account that's different from your Windows region. To sign in with this account, please change your Windows region and restart the Xbox LIVE app.'

    I've already changed the windows region and it's not working :/

    Edited:

    Now it says 'Sorry, sign-in isn't supported in your region at this time.'

    Microsoft doesn't care about UK residents at this time..? :(

    Something I'm not really liking about Windows 8 is that it's kinda hard to navigate the metro apps as everything is so fucking big (optimized for touch). Metro would be so awesome if they actually adapted the metro apps to pointing devices that are precise and don't need bigass icons and buttons. Plus it'd save space.

    I find it easier. You can hit 100x100 instead of a 32x32 area much more easily.

    Now whenever I hover by the lower corners of the screen Windows 8 freezes up for a few seconds.

    Edited:

    Nevermind, just any corner of the screen does it.

    I had it once, just a reboot fixed it. AMD GPU?






    Heh, how am I going to install languages if it's empty.
    If I select "Language name" again all languages appears but it doesn't stop there.
    I can install languages that doesn't have any regional variants because the button simple becomes "Add" when selecting one, when selecting one that got regional variants it gets replaced with "Open" which would obviously show the variants but it's just empty for me, great.

    I am impressed by that boot menu. Just about finished installing it alongside Windows 7 on my other machine. Install was fast and everything is pretty seamless.

    Once you boot to Windows 7 again, you'll be on the old keyboard oriented one again.

    Edited:

    To be honest; While it does have some nice features, I'm not that overall impressed by Windows 8. If it was cheap, I'd probably go for it, but otherwise I might skip.

    Let's see the RC before I make a solid decision though.

    Edited:

    I see some of this stuff and wonder why we didn't have it in Windows 7 though.
    But then I wonder why we didn't have all the Windows 7 stuff in Windows Vista.

    I tried the CP with a Promethean board today. I'm thoroughly impressed. The one thing I don't like is that they reduced the tolerance for opening the charm bar and the open app list, which sucks. Still very fun to play Cut-The-Rope with a massive screen + pen

    The volume wheel on my G15 makes this neat thing come up:

    Same on my G110 :)

    I'll probably upgrade my computer to Windows 8, if not just buy a whole new computer with 8 on it.

    I'm looking for something new and this might be it.

    As much as I dislike the Metro interface currently, I'll probably still end up getting Windows 8 for the other improvements. Hopefully it gets added to MSDNAA at the same time it comes out so I can get it for free

    I had this problem too. I fixed it by installing it from an existing OS, using the setup file.
