Laptop with pre-installed Windows 8 on it. The salesman at the MediaMarkt said that these Laptops are already with pre-installed Windows 8 and also assured me that I can choose English as a language when I am running the laptop. But, when I installed it, the system chose German language and I am really having trouble to understand everything now. My Problem is here how to install Windows 8 with English language and another thing is when I installed the program, it has asked me an Microsoft E-Mail address, but by mistake I installed it with my gmx.de E-Mail address, which means that I am unable to use the Apps in the Computer as it has been asking only Microsoft account, I cant deactivate my gmx.de account which I used when I installed the OS Windows 8 to this Computer.
I want to totally bypass all password logins. I deactivated the password requirement after sleep but this does not solve the bootup problem. Whenever I boot into win 8 it requires a password to login. I don't want it. I want to switch on my laptop and go straight into windows.
I have only one administrative account associated with my Windows 8 PC. I have this said account password protected yet my child can bypass the logon screen by merely resetting the PC. What kind of security is this?
How can I go about setting it up so that a password is require regardless of whether the PC is reset or not?
How are we suppose to go about keeping our children from unmonitored PC access if they can simply reset/shut down the computer and bypass it?
Apparently, Microsoft has established a new requirement for the 8.1 Preview where one must use a valid Microsoft account login (I could not find an easy way to establish just a local login). With that said, you can create an auto-login process, using your Microsoft account, so you can bypass the requirement to manually type a password. This bypass is only recommended for those who maintain their PC/Laptop in a secure environment:
Log On User Account Automatically at Windows 8 Startup
I use a wireless network which utilizes MAC address filtering for security purposes and WEP encryption. I have a MAC address which is white listed on the network and am successfully able to access it by spoofing in my windows XP PC.
However, windows 8 has been giving me headaches since the last week because it simply refuses to alter the mac address to anything with the first octet being '00'.
I am using Qualcomm Atheros AR5BWB222 and TP Link WN7200ND devices. looking for a way in order to alter the MAC in my windows 8 or some way to scan the network with my windows XP PC and find out some other white listed MAC addresses from the router by LINUX or whatever means possible
Can I use airodump -ng on windows somehow (I don't know linux much) to sniff the whitelisted macs?
Boot Direct to Desktop. I found this in a Windows 8 book in the Start Screen Store. If you want to boot directly into the desktop without passing thru the Start Screen
-Go to the start screen & type in schedule to search for Schedule Task in Settings. -Click on Task Scheduler Library in the left pane, and select Create Task in right pane. -Name your task something like Boot to desktop. -Now select the Triggers tab, choose New, and use the drop-down box to select starting the task At log on. -Click OK and go to the Actions tab, choose New, and enter explorer for the Program/Script value. -Press OK, save the task, and restart to test it out.
It's all very easy to do. From the Start screen type "run". Click on Run and type "netplwiz". OK that and highlight your account. Uncheck "Users must enter a username and password to use this computer". Click Apply. Then enter your password twice. Click OK. From the Start screen type "taskbar" and select Taskbar and Navigation. Click the Navigation tab and tick "Go to the desktop instead of Start when I sign in". You can also tick the "Show the Apps view automatically when I go to Start" if you're not that interested in the Modern UI Start screen.
Restart your PC and when Windows loads it will automatically log you in and take you straight to the desktop. Easy.
Me and my wife, have a PC with Windows 8.1 installed. The thing is that the constant requirement of entering user passwords everything we switch is very annoying. Is there anyway to bypass password screens for all users when Windows are booting or when we change users?
How to add new keyboard input language ? I have one language, but i want to add english language. I go to control panel, language, add a language, then i select english, and then just blank window appears... :
Or i go to language, then select for current language options, add an input method, and then explorer just crashes and restarts ... :
There is setting in windows 8 "Use desktop language bar when it's available" it makes language bar like it was in windows 7. But it doesn't seem to work correctly it doesn't appear when windows starts it only appears if you change language with keyboard short cut (for example shift+alt or shift+ctrl you can change that in settings).
I have set 3 input languages so it should be there and I need to use it.. windows default language preference select menu works but language bar doesn't.
The name of the apps in the metro are in different language than English so how can I change the language? and also when I click right click on the desktop I see the options in English in addition to another language so how can I change it to be all in English?
First off, when I type in Korean and Japanese using the appropriate Korean/Japanese IMEs, the language bar is autoset to Half_width alphanumeric. I want to remove all options except for Hiragana and Full-Width Katakana and set it so that when I change my language to Japanese it automatically sets to Hiragana. Similarly with Korean how do I remove the alphanumeric and leave only the korean language option? Secondly, is there a button is can use to fluidly tag between language options within an language? So for instance, if I'm in Japanese is there a combination of buttons to press such that I can change between Hiragana and Full-Width Katakana?
I have a Sony VAIO VPCSE and I have installed Windows 8 Professional. My region, language, input methods etc are set to English(Ireland)
The Problem When I turn on my laptop, there is the word "ENG" beside my clock and my input language is set to English (United States). When I click ENG; I am giving the option to switch between English(Ireland) and English (United States).
When I go to language preferences, the English (United States) language does not show as being one of my preferences
However, when I add the language and then press "Remove", the ENG beside the clock disappears
I don't mind what it is; editing the registry, deleting the English(United States) language.
my default language setting (keyboard layout) is Swedish.For some reason Windows 8.1 changes this setting to English.
I have tried to install and then uninstall the English keyboard layout (so that Swedish is the only one available) but Windows doesn't care if the layout is actually installed or not. Here is a screenshot:
Windows changes this setting on a whim, it seems to happen the most when starting up the computer. I had this problem with Windows 8 as well.
my Keyboard language input keeps changing from English (UK) to English (US)... pretty much all of my passwords have an @ sign in them so you can imaging how annoying this is lol.
This seems heavily related to my mouse - SteelSeries - World of Warcraft : Cataclysm? MMO Gaming Mouse / the control panel for that mouse as it only started happening after installing this mouse (both home and work pc).
I have tried to add English (US) >> Set it as Primary >> Then remove English (US).
Doing this removes the English (US) keyboard completely which is what I want/expect but then it comes back again after a short while?
Is it possible to change the English (US) keys to match that of the English (UK) so even if it does change to English (US) it wouldn't be a problem anyway?
Using Windows 8.1. I have English and Japanese input languages added, and both are listed as options in the language toolbar, but it is impossible to select anything but English. Windows+Space allows me to navigate to Japanese, but releasing the keys or pressing Enter does nothing. The Left Alt+Shift shortcut also does nothing.
I made my own keyboard layout, with Microsoft KLC but somehow couldnt get it to work in windows 8.1
Heres the problem. In Control Panel -> Language the keyboard is recognized:
But on taskbar I couldn't choose my keyboard, just with Alt + Shift i can change it, but taskbar still shows Different language as input:
Is there a way how to change it to see my keyboard on the Taskbar too and do a easy change and also have it as Default, because now i need always on logon change it by ALt + Shift. If I change it in Taskbar it even doesnt work but messes up the input languages.
Even Windows + Space couldnt change my language into my keyboard only Alt + Shift
Today I changed my language options and happened to come across a BSOD. When I restarted, I found out that the input language for my password has also been changed, and my usual key combination for changing languages does not work. Thus, I cannot enter my password to change my language back to English. find a way to change the input language on the login screen?.
i'm wondering how to change my language preference. i've followed the guides on Input Method - Set Default Language in Windows 8 yet i'm still having troubles.
when i install my windows 8 this afternoon i set my location into indonesia. so all of my settings was in bahasa. i've done as the guide said but in my "START", things like Music, Weather, Pictures and some others are still in their bahasa language. while others like Maps and Computers are already changed into English.
I have just started using Windows 8 and like it very much. I do have one very small problem.I have dual language, English and Hebrew. When the program initiates the language selection comes up in Hebrew. I would prefer it to initialize in English. I haven't been able to determine if this can be changed. Is there a way to accomplish this?
I have bought a new computer with 8.1 . When i did the first setup and i had to choose the language i wanted italian but it wasn't there so i choose english and i downloaded the LP later. I installed all the updates inculded Update 1 and everything worked fine. After one week of normal use when i restarted the PC it sayed the was making operations on windows and it lasted like 20 min . I have the OS installed in SSD so it is fast.
After the restart i opened events and saw and error for LP cleaner and CBS initialization.Later i did a restore and checked region and language in control panel and it was working. I opened LPKsetup and uninstalled le LP manually , after the restart Region and language didn't work. I checked for the file intl.cpl in c/windows and there was like 30 files there, in my other pc that has only one language installed there are only 5. How to repair region and language so it can open?
Im from cyrpus/turkey so my native language is turkish but Im using english in all of my devices. So I changed the language regional settings of win 8 to all english united states except the region is cyprus and input lang is turkish Q keyboard.
Even though, in my metro UI the weather and news, mails contents are in english, the live box titles remain the old language which is turkish that I do not want to see.
