Ok, I admit it: I love Windows 8.1! Well, after some tweaking, but still!  

post #1 of 107
Thread Starter 

I no longer need the discussion of my original post to continue, but you are welcome to reply to any of the more recent posts that have been posted. It's just that I've already discussed the content of my original post to death and I'm not interested in doing it again.

 

Original Thread (Click to show)

So, I've been using the 90-Day Windows 8.1 Enterprise Evaluation for the past few days now, and I've reached a point where I can safely say that I love it. I only have 4 remaining issues, but they're extremely minor:

 

  1. Outlook 2003 is unavailable for the Mailto protocol in Windows 8.1
  2. For some reason, AutoComplete in Outlook 2003 doesn't work. Like, I type an e-mail address in the To: field and it gives me an e-mail address suggestion from previously-typed e-mail addresses. In Windows 8.1, they cannot be selected. They show up, but that's it. lol Oddly, this feature works just fine when creating a new contact. It's weird.
  3. My new favorite little program called UndoClose doesn't work in Windows 8.1. Well, actually, it works at 50%. You see, it provides the ability to have a keyboard shortcut for reopening closed folder windows and another keyboard shortcut for reopening closed apps and programs. Well, it can only reopen apps and programs. I rely on it far more for reopening folder windows. :/
  4. Task Manager doesn't remember which tab I was in. If I close it and reopen it, then it defaults to the Processes tab. In Windows 7, it always remembered where I was.

 

Beyond that, I think the desktop side of Windows 8.1 is VERY nice. For example: one of my favorite but minor changes is when copying or moving multiple files and/or folders to a location that has files of the same name: in Windows 7, you have to click a check box that says something like "Do this for all". In Windows 8.1, you just click one button and you're done - even if you have a mix of files and folders. I love that!

 

So, if you're wondering what I've done to make Windows 8.1 so awesome for me, then this is what I did:

 

  1. I installed StartIsBack and configured it until I was 100% happy with it. To me, this is the very best Start Menu program because it's just using native code that already exists while providing a user interface to customize it! No background processes in the background are needed for StartIsBack. You just install it and that's it. The result with StartIsBack is the fastest Windows 7 Start Menu available for Windows 8 while consuming no extra resources!
  2. I installed Gadgets Revived (I need my clock gadget lol)
  3. I installed Old New Explorer (download from this page) and configured it to my liking (but each time you open it up, you have to reconfigure it - so don't forget). No background processes are needed for this one.
  4. I disabled UAC (I set it to "Never Notify") - doing this means that you will no longer be able to open Modern Apps (or Start Apps, or Metro Apps, whatever you want to call them)
  5. I disabled Admin Approval Mode (open secpol.msc as an administrator, expand Local Policies, expand Security Options, and then scroll all the way down to User Account Control: Run all administrators in Admin Approval Mode. Double-click it and set it to Disabled.) - doing this means that you will no longer be able to open Modern Apps (or Start Apps, or Metro Apps, whatever you want to call them).
  6. I disabled Hibernation. Open cmd.exe as an administrator (or just reboot after steps 4 and 5, and then you will be the administrator), and type powercfg -h off and press Enter. When all you get is another command prompt, you have successfully disabled it.
  7. I disabled Windows Defender and Windows Firewall. This completely eliminates the slow loading times in File Explorer.

 

I did lots of other things, but most of them are just kind of a preference and not really a big deal.

 

Anyway, so in other words, I recreated Windows 7 in Windows 8.1. lol :) Only, it's better than Windows 7 by a little bit. I'm not experiencing the faster boot time that I see everyone else raving about, but I don't care because it's nearly identical to what I have with Windows 7 (only Windows 8.1 takes about 3 seconds longer to restart).

 

So yeah, I think that I'll be buying a copy when I can afford it - maybe in May. I have 89 days left of this evaluation, so yeah! :) Why don't I have less than 89 if I've been using it "for the past few days now"? Because I had to Secure Erase my drive and start over because I screwed everything up by doing this:

 

http://www.addictivetips.com/windows-tips/prevent-windows-8-file-explorer-from-deleting-images-thumbnail-cache/

 

I was trying to solve the slow loading problem in File Explorer. It was a huge mess after I did this, so DON'T DO IT IN Windows 8.1! lol Just completely disable Windows Defender and Windows Firewall instead.

 

Anyway, I apologize for the long read, but I figured that it would be better for me to get it all out in the original post rather than slowly add more and more as the thread goes on. I'm sure I'll be doing that anyway for the more preferential tweaks that I did, but those aren't as important - but they are still quite good.

Old New Explorer configuration:

 

Default, as soon as you "install" it:

Customized to my liking:

(actually, I have no idea what the caption stuff is lol)

 

Reopened after customizing:

 

http://home.comcast.net/~twocables/Windows%208.1/OldNewExplorerReopened.png

 

So, you have to make sure that you set everything back to the way you like it! Fortunately, there aren't many things to customize. lol

 

 

 

Computer window (Yep, "Computer", not "This PC". You can rename it any time you want in vanilla 8.1):

I don't know what else to capture. I could try to capture the Start Menu, but, um, I'd have to kind of edit it first. LOL Sorry. Besides, if you've seen and used the Start Menu in Windows 7, then you already know what it looks like - except with the flat look. Yeah, I could use StartIsBack to make it exactly the same as it is in Windows 7, but then it's not consistent with the rest of the environment.

Aw, thanks guys. I really appreciate it! :)

 

lol I forgot to mention that I even got WinDVD Pro 11 working without having to install the new version specifically for Windows 8. I felt like a boss when I did that, but I don't know how I did it. It didn't work in the previous installation of 8.1 Enterprise Evaluation, but it's working great now.

 

I just feel like mentioning all of these things just in case it helps someone else.

I think I'd love stock 8.1; but I'd want a 'Mac-like' touchpad to compliment my mouse. I don't want a touch screen for my desktop, but I'd want the second-best thing. I'm actually kind of keen on the new interface redface.gif.
