Windows 8 and 8.1 tips

Post by UP^Jaskaman on 4th October 2013, 22:07

In Windows 8.1 you can choose desktop now with few tricks but start menu is still missing as it was.

Check this link: http://www.pcworld.com/article/2026719/review-classic-shell-brings-the-start-menu-to-windows-8-for-free.html

note that that version is for Win 8, for Win 8.1 you have to download update for that.

Then you don't have any problems on Win 8 anymore Smile

One more tip, if you want to use IE11 (I suggest you use it), set internet security to medium and add *.battlefield.com to your trusted sites in Internet Options control panel (Security Tab, Trusted Sites zone, Sites button). uncheck "Require server verification" option.
