Solution to get rid Windows 8 haters


Recommended Posts

adrynalyne

let me get this straight:

I CAN'T SAY WINDOWS 8 SUCKS, BECAUSE ITs REALLY TERRIBLE and my comments are deleted/thread closed but I can say how get "rid" of people who don't like Windows 8?

please change the website name to Neonazi.

You should add to the start of your post:

"How to NOT be understood on the Internet"

You could say Windows XP sucked, or Windows 7 sucked (far from it), but if you say Windows 8 sucks on Neowin, you get maimed and trampled by a mob! It must be because Microsoft is putting their future on Windows 8 and if it fails, then it would be the end! People have the right to express their opinion on something! I like Windows 8, but I think Microsoft should have waited to release it so they could make it a more complete and finished OS! Windows 7 has a less chaotic and more consistant interface, on the other hand Windows 8 is speedier and more modern feeling.

A mob of what, three people? ;)

I do not hate Windows 8, as I am using it on my laptop. However if I could just boot to the desktop, I would be extremely. I always loved booting straight to the desktop and being on it so I can see all my folders, shortcuts, my computer and everything. It is a comforting feeling being on the desktop also. Enough with having to press win+d key or press the desktop tile, I want my pc go automatically go to the desktop by itself like it always has in the past.

Hell tons of people still on XP who think it's the greatest OS ever made.

It is the greatest OS Microsoft ever made.

Windows 8 is the Justin Bieber of Operating Systems.

Please don't...make it any worse than what it already is.

Or, simply give users who prefer the desktop or classic look back, that would shut us up also :p

Alot of the Windows 8 haters are those who used Windows for along time! I say Windows 8 is the most controversal Windows of all time!

I see that you were not here during the "I HATE UAC, THIS IS MY PC WHY CAN'T I DO XYZ WITHOUT PROMPT" Vista days.

I think we can all agree they way Metro has been implemented is the biggest lightning rod since UAC/Superbar.

*nix users never complained when entering password fields, that tells you something about the concern of security between both comparison groups for Windows users and *nix

False equivalence (and offtopic) but... The problem with UAC in Vista wasn't the idea of a superuser, or even one where you had to enter a password for root a la OS X/*nix - but the repeated, mind numbing and inconsistent amount of 'OKs' to hit that was 'fixed' in Win7.

Lets see, security and usability are conflicting forces, one OS is geared for users, the other for ops...hmmmm.

      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.
