    I thought it would be really good idea to collect all bugs in just 1 thread, so that users, who might use the CP for the first time see, what doesn't work very well.

    How to post here a bug:

    1. Name the Windows feature or WinStore app
    2. Describe the bug
    3. If you have a solution for fixing it, than write it too.

    3. Signing out takes ages and never does the job, force shut down is required.

    1. NET Framework 4.5 programs won't run in Windows 8 in old PCs

    2. Old CPU's without SSE2 instructions (Athlon XP, Pentium III) will run Windows 8 but won't run Metro apps as Net 4.5 libraries have this requirement and now are part of the os and used for running some metro Apps. Only IE10 Metro works because is probably made in C++ native.

    3. The NET Framework team know the problem but probably won't fix it.

    1. Mousepointer randomly does not "load" when booting WCP. Only a restart will fix it.
    2. Solitaire lags like hell. Pinball don't. Kind of strange, don't you think?

    1. Start menu
    2. It's missing and the group policy setting to "Force classic start menu" doesn't work
    3. Use a real desktop OS e.g. Windows 7


    I'm being slightly sarcastic, but really, why give the group policy setting that does nothing? Make sure it works in the final version Microsoft.

    1. When switching apps, going back to chrome makes tabs disappear.
    2. Mail lets you connect to GMail but does nothing with it (won't let me get to the inbox or show me notifications).
    3. Run won't let you check "As Admin", but using Run in Task Manager will.

    #2 Apparently fixes itself after a few restarts, but it outright had jammed up on me.

    Is lack of GMail Notifications in Mail a bug? I get calendar stuff working but not Mail. Seems messed up to me.

    When logging into windows 8 consumer version using my 18 digit Windows live password and login (alpha & numeric) password (as admin), Windows tells me invalid password or invalid login.
    The only fix I could find was to change my Windows live password to less characters, ( I used 10 ) and After a reinstall all was fine.

    First Install:

    1. Login with my live id (it ends on gmail.com) does seem to have the effect that I can not open anything at all. I see the Metro UI, but nothing works.

    Second install using local account:
    1 At the times the Windows 8 installation crashes hard. Nothing is logged in the Eventviewer. All I have a weird stripes across my screen. Updating every driver doesn't seem to fix this. Currently all drivers are installed and it still happens. No solution yet. Will keep digging.
