Windows 8.1




vBulletin counter



On the subject of Windows 8.1 which I now have with my latest laptop. Does anyone use an ePub reader they really like for this system. I can always convert to mobi but it would also be nice to have an ePub reader. One other question, I have tried several methods to disarm 'charms' but to no avail, any ideas for the technologically challenged!



Hope everyone has a good week-end...the sun is shining here:)

Calibre has a reader built into it, plus it will convert book formats. It's free.

I have no experience with 8.1. I'm still using XP and 7.

I use Calibre for converting etc, but have never used it as a reader, but that is a thought. I don't think it will sync all my books when I download to this computer.

I could have stayed with Windows 7 but decided I needed a challenge, not one of my saner moments! though I could have it changed back, I just don't like to give in:)

I'm so looking forward to you being a tech wizard on win8 so you can tell me all about it.
My laptop Ejnar is currently lend out to the schoolboy. So I'm happily working in some pre 8 thing. And my phone which is another challenge.
Hugs

Ha Ha! I very much doubt I will even become comfortable with this system never mind being a tech wizard.

Hope the schoolboy is doing well with Ejnar, and putting him to good use:)

Thanks Lyn that one has made it to me short list, which is down to I think three. One I have to pay for but it also looks very good.

Thanks for looking at them, that was kind.

*hugs*

*eyes Windows 8.x warily* Charms? Sounds like a Hogwarts class. Professor Flitwick, I believe.

*hugs my Windows 7 machines*

Other than the 8.1 issue, do you like the new laptop?

Charms are links which pop up on the side of the page, and though I have disabled then they still keep coming and are a real pain.

I chose to have 8.1 and I could change back to 7 but I figure this is how it is going to be so I might as well get used to it while I have the brain cells to do so.

On the whole yes, but the touch pad is not great.
