• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Try installing Startisback for Win8

I don't use Win 8. I installed it a virtual machine and when it started I was like, "what hell is this." It's a damn app!
This is neither new or unusual. The desktop in Windows has always been an app (explorer.exe), even the command prompt in DOS was an app (command.com) , as is a Linux prompt (bash or what eveer shell you use) and of course any GUI you choose to run in Linux.

It is certainly not unusual for explorer.exe (the desktop app) in WinXP to crash causing your desktop to disappear.

The only difference is the desktop app is not the default startup app in Windows 8, but it is only one click away.

Obviously, the new Start panel was designed to move Windows toward touch screen devices that will be the norm (even for desktops) in the not to distant future,

they had a winner in WinXP as far as the user interface. Everything was clear and easy. I can't figure out how they think overthere. Sometimes I think it is done on purpose to make people loose time.
