Guys, how did you change font of time on taskbar to white?


You can't really change the color of the font (not that I know of). When you have the Aero glass theme selected, the text is white. When it's Aero basic, like the one you're using, the text is black.

Found myself with some free time unexpectedly and decided to go ahead and re-install Windows 8.

Desktop app tiles look terrible. The current mishmash of desktop/metro really doesn't work well.

Have to agree with that one.. for the "classic" applications they should have laid the tiles out in the same format.. larger icon, text underneath, etc.. still wouldn't give any of the live info but at least it would look more consistent.

Apparently, that's been fixed.

Not a huge fan of the "Metro" style to be honest. I'm seriously considering holding onto my Windows 7 install, and wait for the next one after Windows 8 instead.

What i'd like to see for "non-Metro" apps, is an OPTION to allow the icons to be JUST an icon, and no text visible unless you hover the cursor over the icon.

They have addressed that (as seen in some leaked screenshots).

Wow it looks like a theme to you? Its just raw Windows 8 with Greyish aero color , without transparency , taskbar on top , and chrome with grey theme. If you really want a theme , here it is : http://zeusosx.devia...eview-312730083

At least now you can enjoy your wallpaper more since, at least for me and some others, you won't have to pin icons to the desktop. I'm really thinking I'll finally go multimonitor with Win8 but now the question is should I opt for the new monitor to be touch screen as well? If so it'd be the one that always shows the start screen while I keep doing what i'm doing on the desktop like I have been. Simple glance to the left to see the live tiles and if I have to do anything I can just quickly reach up to hit the tile and not have to drag the mouse all the way over.
