There is even a video editor (Magisto). But how much can you do on a small screen. I sometimes have trouble on the 22". And I want to see them run the WLMM on the Surface Pro.

Well I don't need to worry about that now lol I found a way to get my Tablet to join homegroup and i route my movies from the back up drive through sharing this was the thing that drove me crazy for two weeks

The app i used is ES file explorer it has the bridge to get you into homegroup only thing though it just shows the tablet in added devices but you won't see it's name in the homegroup

I must say after i have linked it the way i wanted it much faster in all aspects and my movies and blazing fast whichs makes me happy

Also the movies stream direct and no need to download it to the tablet you can just open up the host drive and go from there

i've been trying to do that, i'm not sure if it's on my homegroup it doesn't show under network like my xbox does when it's on . i can use BubbleUPnP to watch mp4 video files but i want to beable to watch all my video files because most of them aren't in mp4. when i use ES file explorer>lan i can't connect it it ask for a password but i've no idea what password it needs i'll get there in the end. just to add i'm talking about watching the video files that are on my PC via streaming like i use playstation media server to stream videos to my xbox

Hi there
Why should "Non Geeks, Non Desktop users" be regarded as the "More moronic part of the population".

Strangely - providing you just ignore the metro UI and don't have too many complex apps with weird sub choices in them Windows 8 is JUST AS EASY as W7 for using Windowed applications and the classical desktop.

True it takes some work to organise the desktop decently --delete a whole load of superfluous tiles when installing programs, and select a bunch of applications to pin to desktop and taskbar but once you've done that it's NO DIFFERENT to how you'd work in W7.

Like any major change the ist iteration isn't optimal -- I'm sure by Service pack 2 or Windows 9 (or whatever they call it by then) will have these bugs and quirks sorted out .

A lot of people just simply mouth comments without spending around 60 mins at most to see if the main complaints are really valid.

It IS frustrating when you start --especially if you are a power user because you'll instinctively make keystokes etc that you've been using in previous versions of Windows which won't always be the same - but I'd guarantee that with a small bit of work most people's objections could be easily solved-- and in any case I know loads of people using W7 that once they are in the desktop actually NEVER use the menu either.

enc screenshot (apart from the Orb -- Just like W7 so what's the prob). Even in W7 I didn't use the menu hugely anyway on my own private laptop -- at work where we have some obscure ERP systems with quite a few Back end DB systems it's slightly different but the average user isn't one of those types anyway.

Simple !!!!



Cheers
jimbo

It will not show in Homegroup but you will see it in the Added Devices ........ and Media drives

The Password is the Computer name and the Password that you use to log on to it's not the Router ID it is the PC you are trying to talk to

Basicly like turning on your PC and logging into Win 7

I think that would be worth a tutorial. Can you make one ??

I use the ES File Explorer too but have not yet ventured into homegroup. I was trying to stream from an OTG attached fast stick and even an SSD, but that does not work. It stutters.

Yeah, I think it would be nice if we could have a little corner in the tutorial section for Android tuts. Or a subforum for Android with a tut thread.

No offence but that is not accurate.

Neither is that.

You need to go here if you want to fix your issue Homegroup - Add Android Phone or Tablet

maybe it isn't the password you think it is you can also turn off log on password to the PC itself and link as Anonymous as long as you internet connection is secure you don't need to worry

Would You Reject A Pre-Built PC Because Of Windows 8
I found an excellent pre-built PC deal. The system uses quality parts and is cheaper than the cost of the separate parts + shipping by $125.00. Plus, I would have to spend time building the PC. The only problem are is it ships with Windows 8 only. Is Windows 8 a deal killer ?
