Big question

Even if Pro is leaked, how can you install it without key? It requires a key during setup innit?

Fake screenshot probably: it should read Windows 8 Professional, not Windows 8 Pro

I am pretty sure it is Pro and not Professional. :p

It's a Volume Edition, WZOR would embed a "bad but valid key" in the installer like the previous leaked Ent., you can skip the key entry on installation but you will have it in "Notification Mode", don't use it as your regular OS.

As for the name Pro, no need to get back to cave, just read Mr. LeBlanc's blog about the win8 SKU's. :)

You'll lack the ability to easily change lock wallpaper and start screen wallpaper. But there are workarounds for that.

You also get activation notifications every now and again. No biggie.

It's usable, just not ideal.

If it's like Windows Vista/7, the volume editions are installed with the KMS Client key by default. You need to change it only if you're not on a network advertising KMS services. Until then, the licensing service will be in "Initial Grace Period". WZOR will not embed anything.

So during that period you cant use applications such as Office? or install anything?

On windows 7, you can do anything you like, even install apps requiring WGA checks (as long as you're not in an "out of tolerance", or "Invalid License" state)

On windows 8, things might have changed, I heard you can't even change visual settings until you're activated.

That's because DWM can't be disabled anymore.

Win8 behaves exactly the same way as Win7, you can still change your Desktop and install software even w/o activating. Only the Start screen seems to be locked down, stuck on the default settings until you activate.

I won't link it obviously. The place I got the link from removed it now as well, gawd. You either need to be fast with these things, or a member of the locked-down WZor forum.

It's really the start screen and some customization options that are locked until you activate it. I think some apps like Office 2013 don't run to but I think it's limited to that only on the desktop side for now.

Office 2013 is running fine for me on Enterprise N.

you can do just that, but for some reason to the people on here not having the ability to change your color scheme from sky blue to baby blue makes the entire OS useless.

I'm surprised people are still hopeful about the icons. People were convinced they'd be changed in the RTM. But if you look at MS's track record at updating art (especially icons) it's been awful. There's still XP-era artwork littered throughout. I wouldn't hold your breath.

Most people are actually complaining that the old icons were not changed. Windows 8 is done so there is no chance for new icons. Maybe in Windows 9, maybe not.

lol who gives a ****?. No one wants that OS as main, more when 7 is running pretty well and 8 is nothing but a new start menu. They convert your computer into a gigantic phone. I see microsoft releasing a crack to their own system to make it popular.

Better luck with 9.

      HI,

      Hope there are still some Surface2 (RT)  Win8 users around, as I still use mine almost daily besides my S3.

      The tablet ran the latest 04-2018 security update yesterday, but it messed up all my installed apps. Almost all of them refused to start and got stuck on the start/icon screen.
      It doesn't really matters if it's MS native apps or 3rd party ones.
      After some fiddling I got some of them to start again, by starting/closing them frequently, but are dog slow atm.

      While this was all happening, CPU and harddrive usage was over 60-70%%, as if Windows was still doing stuff. Even after multiple reboots/shutdowns.

      Also, the apps that refuse to start (for now) are apps that are not in the Store anymore. Coincidence?
      Does this sound familiar to someone, or did I just got a bad update experience?

      cheers!

      Hi All,
       
      I am trying to mend my parents in law's computer. It's a Lenovo with Windows 8. The computer is extremely slow - loading up the computer you need at least two attempts - the first attempt you get a blue screen. Using the PC I've encountered that the computer is extremely slow - mouse stops when you are moving it etc...
       
      I've run a disk cleanup and then also a virus run. These did not make a big difference.
       
      Does anyone have any further ideas on how to remedy this problem? Would prefer not to reboot the entire machine as I have lost the Office 2010 code.

      Do you use the Libraries feature introduced in Windows 7 and / or the Saved Search (otherwise known as Virtual Folder) feature introduced in Windows Vista? If so, do you have a preference for either feature?

      While I like both features I, as you probably expected, prefer the Saved Search feature. Both Libraries and Saved Searches consolidate content from multiple locations in a single view, and both allow users to customize their viewing experience based on the content displayed. Libraries, however, only allow users to display content based on folder locations (e.g., they cannot reference content based solely on dates, file attributes, et cetera), and users must manually add folders to a library before their content will appear.

      In contrast, Saved Searches can reference multiple locations simultaneously—or an individual folder(s) if that is what a user desires—based on a user's criteria such as specific names, dates, metadata, types, and words or phrases within files themselves. Also unlike Libraries, users can refine their Saved Search results with Boolean operators, natural language search (in Windows Vista and Windows 7), query composition, and / or the options offered by the column headers in File Explorer.

      I don't know what to do. It is driving me crazy. None of the solutions suggested have work. I turned off the adaptive brightness feature in the advanced settings and I also disabled the sensor in the msconfig and it still lower the brightness to almost not visible. I have a Sony Vaio that came with windows 8 and upgraded to 10. It does it with both versions.
