Windows 8 Developer Preview problem!!!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So as the title says im having big problem with windows 8! I've dual booted my Win7 PC with the Win8 Dev Preview, and it's all installed and activated and seems to be working fine. The only problem is that I can't switch apps by dragging/clicking on the left hand side of the screen. Alt-Tab and Win-Tab work fine, they switch apps with no problems, but the aforementioned method for switching apps doesn't work, which is disappointing, because I really like it. I've re-installed Windows 8, and I'm still having the same problem. Previously I have installed Win8 in a Virtualbox virtual machine, and have had no problems at all, the left side dragging/clicking app switching was working fine. Any help will be much appreciated, thanks!
