Metro Zoom feature

    Question

  • I have been spending most of the week installing and reinstalling checking features and other things.  On the metro screen is there a keystroke to zoom out to see all the "tiles" on one screen.  almost sounds like the <sic> old desktop but might come in handy here and there especially is someone has a few stocks they have pinned to their start. 

    I love how a lot of things are saved to your live account.  History, Fav Bar, Desktop, Some shorcuts.  That is an awesome idea I love it.  And being able to log into any windows 8 machine and have  access to your desktop great! I have noticed My hard drive seems to be accessing constantly even when there is nothing <wink> going on is this something new or is it something I should be concerned with?

    Thanks for your time, Adam

  • Hi Adam,

    You can download and run Process Monitor (ProcMon) from here and see what is accessing the drive: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896645.aspx  (just filter on drive activity).

     

    You should be able to see what is accessing the disk, and post it here.
