Tweaking Windows 8.1

The fine folks over at TweakHound have published a guide for tweaking Windows 8.1 for all of you people that there that might find this useful or have need for it.Here’s a little bit of a blurb from the guide introduction:

“Windows 8 represents a major change in the way Microsoft thinks we use computers. For better or worse they have attempted to unify the user experience across a variety of devices including tablets, laptops, tablet-laptop hybrids, phones, and PC’s. Windows 8 is designed for touch screens. This guide is aimed at using Windows 8 as a desktop PC and/or laptop without touch capabilities. It is not about completely eliminating Metro but rather doing most of the work in desktop mode while taking advantage of the new features in Metro. In other words, this guide is for people who want to get stuff done.”

Of course, it is always good to get information on how to better tweak your operating system, so thanks for that one. Now only if we could solve the mouse lag issue that seems to be popping up with Windows 8.1 and some games. Sigh. Always something, right? 🙂
