Windows 8 suggestions (maybe even bugs) RRS feed

  • General discussion

    1. Keyboard stops working/random behavior [on facebook mainly]
    2. There should be a way to exit metro-apps [using task manager is not enough]
    3. My News feed crashes/doesn't update
    4. no way to set the desktop IE as the default app for files/browser.
    5. Metro IE [pretty much sucks usability/functionality wise, eg : Right click on a link and you get only 3 options on metro IE : open link, open in new page, open in new tab, where as desktop ie shows a lot of options (very useful) ]
    6. Metro IE crashes a lot (can't really recreate the incident, but it crashes a lot)
    7. Metro IE : when you are on a page, you right click to enter a new url, it automatically goes to "Frequent , Pinned" page. [very annoying, it should stay on the current page]

    [EVEN THIS forum, you can only click on the first line of the text area, to enter text, other area, the mouse pointer becomes the default pointer. I'm using desktop IE, win8 right now, maybe that's why the issue ? :-/]

  • You should be able to do 4 by going into metro IE, pulling up the settings charm, and clicking on "Default view for links" .
