      What surprised me at first is that the blue I chose for the Metro UI for my Win 8 rig really matches this. Creates a nice fluid feel for when I go to the start screen from here to check the weather or something.

      I know, I know Windows 8.
      I'm not a sinner, or preacher, all I have is slight of hand.

        I'd rather hear you go on about the new Windows than endure the Cult of Jobs talking about their latest gadget.

            There's no need for the hate. One can switch over to classic view if one prefers at the touch of a button. But I like the new look.

            Me, I'm still on Win7, but I may soon be upgrading.

              Sort of. You can have most of the old look and you can pin things to the bar...I like 8. I think it's the best thing since XP.

                I hate windows 8 with passion.

                I NEED the start button, constantly searching files and program - I can't wait for some slow right side search to come up, I need speed!

                I do have a touch monitor but the app menu is just too hard to navigatet, it's like a maze of every app you never needed.

                  For all those complaining, I tested 3 different extensions that easily change the colour of TOL.


                  Spoiler


                  High Contrast

                  Desaturate

                  Change Colours

                  The change colours extension is tad more complicated, you have to click on the icon next to the bookmark icon, then click "apply override on this domain"

                  For this page would mean just one thread
                  Domain means all of TOL
                  All pages = ... All pages everywhere.

                  Then go into options by right clicking the icon, keep the default options but change the colours, I used:

                  Background color: FFFFFF
                  Text color: 474747
                  Links color: 2E79DB
                  Visited links color: 9B51DB


                  Enjoy and please don't complain =/

                    File explorer. You should have it pinned at the bottom of your screen. Problem solved.

                    Prioritize and arrange them. Even make the ones you want to see quickly larger. Easy peasy.

                      Maybe I hate it so much because it was in German and made me look like an idiot infront of my loved ones.

                        Oh my gosh this is such a perfect straight line.

                          Super. Is there a way to have links highlighted in blue (automatically) like we had it in the old format? For links now there is a subtle underline under the text, but its not that noticeable, unless one puts their pointer over it.


                          Thanks,

                            If you are talking about posts the links are blue. Unless you have visited that link already, then they are black with an underline.

                              I actually love Windows 8. It's just becoming clear that it's not going to have anywhere near the adoption rate that 7 experienced. 7 will probably be on most PCs until the next Windows, in the same way XP was until 7.

                              Granted Vista was an atrocity of the highest kind bested only by Win ME in software flaws, so who knows. Maybe the Xbox One will work with 8 in some way that will make people upgrade.

                              I don't even get the uproar about 8 really. It's got everything 7 does minus the start button when you're in desktop mode. Plus the Metro UI is great, tons of info right away. The only fault I have with Win 8 is that some shortcuts don't automagically populate in Metro, so you have to uncover some hidden folders to be able to put your shortcuts in Metro. Annoying but not broken.

                              I hope I obliged

                              • What I know about computers you can put on the head of a pin but I just did something that improved the washed out appearance....I know, it's silly, but I simply tilted my flat screen up a bit and everything improved dramatically. It seemed overly bright at first and I could hardly make out the membership level and club banners over the reputation. A wee tilt made all the difference. Pardon me for being a computer ditz! The new appearance is quite cheery Knight, thank you! Before long your avatar might smile! LOL
