I didn't know that Microsoft released new Windows 8.1 iso with update 3


Good for those who installs W8.1 from scratch. They won't need to download all those gigs of updates/rollups.

Multiple En edition Iso called

en_windows_8.1_with_update_x64_dvd_6051480.iso

en_windows_8.1_with_update_x86_dvd_6051550.iso

Subscribers can go and grab them

Do you know the name for the spanish ISO?

Using Tech Prev atm. It's pretty good except for IE which has CPU and memory leak really annoying. Can't wait for Spartan lol.
Another annoying thing is windows media player and ie are both 32 bit by default. Had to use registry tweaks to enable 64 bit versions.

Duh ... tech prev gets really annoying and buggy.

These are known gotchas but I got much more.

And here's nice trick to get back old Windows Update:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsUpdate\UX]
"IsConvergedUpdateStackEnabled"=dword:00000000

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsUpdate\UX\Settings]
"UxOption"=dword:00000000
Copy/paste in notepad, close, save as WU.reg and run it. This will give you Windows Update back, look in Control Panel and you will find Windows Update is back

Nobody cares so I carry on:



Activate New Tray Clock and Calendar UI


Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ImmersiveShell]
"UseWin32TrayClockExperience"=dword:00000000
Like before copy/paste in notepad, close, save as clocks.reg or whatever and run it. This will give you new clock and calendar in your tray.

new and old:







Pretty much everything's changed. You have very little to no control over updates.
Can't you get to the old one by the Control Panel?

New tricks

Enable Edge engine for IE11 in W10

Open IE11 and type about:flags in the address bar. In the page that appears, simply set “Experimental Web Platform Features” to Enabled, then restart the browser. Setting the “Custom User Agent” string to Enabled as well will trick websites that nerf the old IE engine into using Spartan Edge. The Edge is considerably faster than IE11's default engine.




Turn off File Explorer's Quick Access view

File Explorer > View > Options. Click the “Open File Explorer” drop-down menu at top, then select the “This PC” option. Click OK




Secret, powerful new command line tools
W10 has new command line features, including the ability to copy and paste inside the command prompt with Crtl + C and Crtl + V.

Command prompt > Right-click its title bar, select Properties. You can find and enable the new features under the Experimental tab.

We also don't need senseless posts replying to months old content and not providing anything useful to the OP with said post.

How do I use shadow copy or in this case "file history" in Windows 8 to restore previous Document files if "file history" has never been turn on before hand? I ask this as Im trying to recover document files that have been encrypted by the crypto virus and this is one way you can get them back (if lucky) but it has changed in windows 8 from Windows 7...

If it was never turned on before hand you're kinda screwed. Usually if VSS is running you will see "Previous Versions" in the properties of the folder, file, or drive.

Indeed and I find that so stupid that Windwos 8 doesnt have it turned on like W7 by default, the normal user isnt going to do that or know about that till its to late, stupid Windows 8!.

Anyway I used a program called Shadow Explorer and was able to recover half of his files using that. Thank god. Crypto Wall Virus 0 me 1 haha

Ya it's pretty frustrating it's not enabled by default. Windows 10 seems to enable thankfully (at least on the computers I've upgraded so far).
