    Using the key that came w/ the download: NKJFK------HQRJR does not work to add features,
    The window says the key is no good.
    Need .NET above 2.0 to install a app, sadly I cant get past the key part in add features

    Something is goofed-up w/ this :(

    Edit: OK I typed "features" on the start screen & was able to choose .NET 3.0-3.5 there & it installed fine.

    It's very encouraging to see that WMC hasn't been dropped yet. WMC is awesome with an HD Homerun Prime and I can't live without it.

    "Add features to Windows" is the old "Windows Anytime Upgrade"
    It changes versions to different more advanced versions of Windows.
    For example, changing Professional to ProfessionalWMC in Windows 8.

    We'll have to wait and see what all we can upgrade to when the thing actually gets released.
    The key that is listed on the download page is for the actual OS, not an upgrade; so it won't work in that context.

    What's this do ?

    By the way, you can close app totally by clicking on X (In win 8.1.1 it close app but it show in task manager).

    Everything internet-wise actually seems faster to me. I had to check on Speedtest.net to see if my connection was updated by Time Warner it's such a big difference. They've updated my speed in the past without notifying so I thought maybe they did it again. Nope

    Chrome and IE both seem a lot faster on my laptop than they are with 8.1 Update 1. Don't have it installed to my desktop yet.

    Hide search and task view

    Here is some code I have written in order to hide the two new taskbar buttons (search and task view). Source code and exe file included (in the bin folder). feel free to improve or modify the code, as long as you share any improvements here. It is something I have rapidly scratched, few time payed for polishing it...

    View attachment WinTHButtonHider.zip

    Oh yeah, and it would be super cool if someone finds a way to make the borders large as it were in Windows 8.1...

    Cortana app is in C:\Program Files\WindowsApps, maybe is related to the search app (being an early build)?
