Apps / Software :: Update Apps Of Windows Store For All Users With Local Account

It is possible update for all users the Windows Store apps with a local account belonging to the Administrators group? Then, I believe that the management of updating of the Windows Store apps can also be managed only by administrators. Right? If so, how do I do this?

Apps / Software :: Skydrive - How To Use MS Account But Keep Account Local

May 10, 2014

I'm trying to use skydrive on two different computers, but when I made them both with the same MS account they synced stuff to each other, which I do not want.

I made a local account on one computer, but if I want to access Skydrive, it changes that account, back to the main account.

Is there a way to access the same Skydrive account through the app without making them the same user account?

Or is there a way to unsync different computers?

Apps / Software :: How To Remove Skype From Synced Account

Sep 3, 2013

Whilst on holiday I used a friends laptop with Windows 8 so that I could use Skype to call people. It was not set up so I had to do it. I didn't realize that I had synced my Skype to my friends Microsoft account and to her hotmail address. Now whenever I get a call or message to me on skype, she now gets it too.

I have tried to log out and other things, but it says that it is now tied to her. I'm running a different Windows to her so I am unable to work my way around it.

HowI can remove my Skype account from her Windows 8 account?

Apps / Software :: Windows 8 Apps Not Working On 1 Account

Mar 21, 2014

I somehow can't acces the standard Windows 8 apps anymore.

Apps like Camera, Maps, News, World clock. I can acces the App Store however...

Few days ago I made a account to test something and I noticed the apps were just running as they should be.

So I think I somehow changed a setting on my normal account that I can't use these apps anymore.

Admin Power-shell Will Not Run Local Exe

Mar 7, 2013

I'm trying to set up a dual boot system with Windows 8, (already installed on a new laptop), and Win 7.

Following instructions from a forum thread I got as far as downloading oscdimg.exe into the Win7_ISO directory.

However whatever I try, full path, etc., I get this error Code: oscdimg.exe : The term 'oscdimg.exe' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or operableprogram. Check the spelling of the name, or if a path was included, verify that the path is correct and try again.

The command I am trying to run is Code: PS C:Win7 ISO> oscdimg -w4 -os -lWin_7_x64_UEFI_ISO9660 -m -o -n -pEF -e -bc:Win7 ISOefimicrosoftootefisys.bin c:Win7 ISO c:Win_7_x64_UEFI_ISO9660.iso

Local HDD Asking For Admin Permissions After Format

Jun 10, 2013

This problem occurs on a local, non-USB HDD.

I recently formatted my computer, installing Windows 8. And I realized one of my HDDs was acting weird. It doesn't allow Chrome to save files, it asks for UAC permissions when I try to delete, move or rename files. I looked it up, decided it was about ownership and permissions. Permissions were already set, full control. But ownership was wrong so I fixed it, rebooted my computer and problem still persists at the moment.

When I right click and go to the properties of a folder, it says "Read only". When I uncheck it and Apply, it "applies" it to the subfolders with a loading bar but it still remains "Read only".

Apps / Software :: Installers Cannot Elevate - Have To Run As Admin

Feb 15, 2014

In Windows 8 Pro x64 (and now with 8.1) shortly after installing Windows I couldn't run any installer from a web browser or by just double-clicking the file. I have to right-click and "Run as administrator"

The error messages vary but they all are variations on a theme of unable to access something.

I usually have UAC off but the UAC setting doesn't matter. I am an administrator. I am using Start8 and ModernMix if it matters. I've Googled and found nothing that worked but I don't remember exactly what I've tried.

Accounts :: Win 8.1 Home - Merge Domain User Account With Local User Account

Aug 28, 2014

I have a user with a machine that was setup with Win 8.1 Home. The machine has been upgraded to 8.1 Pro and joined to a domain (WinSrv 2003). I need to get the content/configuration from their old local machine user profile to their new domain user profile.

I tried to copy the contents of their ../users/<name>/.. folder from the local user profile to the new domain user profile (after they had logged in once, and then logged off). This did not work. When I did the copy, I grabbed all files, including hidden...was that my mistake, or is the issue broader?

In the end....they want their old stuff and configuration under their new credentials/profile.

Remove Desktop Category From Apps Screen

Jul 30, 2014

When an item is pinned to Start, it is pinned to two locations: 1) Start screen, and 2) Desktop category in the Apps screen. This is redundant, as no one is going to go through two screens to access something that was available in the first.

Is there any way to remove the "Desktop" category from the Apps screen?

Accounts :: How To Get Local Account Back

Aug 3, 2014

I installed the Windows 8.1 a number of months ago. Since then (I'm thinking, now), I could not sign in with my microsoft account and neither could I get an energy report using the admin command prompt, and was also having problems with the One Drive sync. I never thought these were related, but after months now, I finally, after seeing the new 15 gb free with One Drive, thought I would try to open an account to get 15 free gb. I didn't realize I could open more than one microsoft account, but yeah, a new account opened with the free 15 gb on One Drive.

Okay, so I got this new account, and I could then sign in with a Microsoft account using this new account, which also made my original Microsoft account available, but the problem starts with my original local account. I can no longer sign in with my original local account (see attachment). To me, it is as if I have made a new microsoft account with a sub-account, which is my original Microsoft account. One is for Windows 8.1, (the new MS account), and my original MS account was for Windows 8, which no longer exists. Somewhere in the process of creating the new account, I was given the option to elevate it to Administrator and I did, it even shows as Administrator in the User Accounts "change your account type" where the "standard" and "administrator" are available, but this is not where I somehow elevated it. Now, it seems to be the boss, my original MS account seems to be secondary or an alias.

I closed the account, but it won't be official til October, since there is a 60 day recovery plan. Even with the account closed, folders and things, because I'm currently signed in with my original MS account, need to logged into with the new account info, which is what I mean by "the boss". I can't be doing that if I'm closing the account.

I did get an energy report, but the .html file wouldn't open (see attachment).

I learned One Drive is different with Windows 8 or is it just 8.1, haven't got into it to much, right now.

How can I get my local account back, keep my original MS account, and still be able to sign in, get an energy report, and use One Drive sync?
