comment Why is Maps stuck on a purple loading screen?
Thanks. Apple doesn't release Boot Camp drivers incrementally. Boot Camp is bundled with OS X, so you only see Boot Camp updates when a new OS X comes out.

comment How do I stop Google from bugging me to install the Start page Google app?
@Goran_Mandic In my case, it was definitely the Delete browsing history on exit option. I have amended DzinX's answer to specify this, but the community must vote to accept this answer.

If my keyboard doesn't work, logging in won't help me much. I need a solution that gets my keyboard working.

@Goran_Mandic His answer doesn't explicitly mention the problem: Deleting browsing history on exit was checked.

@DzinZ You were right. IE was deleting browser history, including cookies, on exit.

comment How do I stop Google from bugging me to install the Start page Google app?
The behavior doesn't appear to be related to which cookie settings I use. I lowed the privacy level way down, but I'm still prompted to install the Google Start app each time I open IE.

@OliverSalzburg Not at all. Apple Mac OS X comes with a built-in utility for dual booting Mac and Windows: Boot Camp.

comment How to log into Windows 8 without using the keyboard (In case of Keyboard malfunction or other problems with the keyboard)?
@Ramhound, A) My keyboard works fine in Mac OS X. B) This is a MacBook Pro laptop, so it's not easy to replace the keyboard. This shouldn't be a configuration problem as I have just started using Windows 8; I haven't had time to mess up any configs.
