comment Backspace on Bing removes two characters
This worked. My concern is that Microsoft will finally fix Bing and then I'll still be using compatibility mode. But then again, I'll be upgrading to full 8.1 when it comes out, so I guess this is a non-issue. Thanks Do Kim!

@RandolphWest I have not changed my regional settings (EDT, en-us), and I have only one keyboard, a Microsoft Sidewinder X4.

@chipperyman573 No. It only happens in Windows 8.1/IE 11 and only on the Bing search bar. I cannot get it to happen anywhere else.

comment A Dark Theme for Windows 8
@AlirezaNoori I wasn't calling you crippled. I had headaches a few years ago from a bad CRT monitor. So I know how it can be. I just didn't know how serious this was and if an ugly look was worth it. The metro interfaces really take a hit in high contrast theme.

comment A Dark Theme for Windows 8
Have you tried the High Contrast themes in the Personalize settings? Particularly #1, #2 and black. However they change metro too (IMO, for the worse). But these are more for disability and physical reasons, not beauty. I guess you fit under the physical reasons category. It might get you by until a real theme comes out.

comment How to stop MS Word from skipping pages?
@Pacerier Yes and no. Mostly yes. I understand why they did it this way, but it seems most people would want it 'your' way. It doesn't behave they way I think most people would expect.

comment Use metro background as desktop background
@JourneymanGeek I know: several predefined colors and watermarks (for lack of a better term). I want to pick a style (say, gray with the bubbles) and then copy that metro background picture for use on the desktop.

I think you only want to change the one in the D:\pocket\test folder.

This is SO cool! I renamed my desktop to "Dash." Hello world of fantastically named system folders! I can't picture this blowing up all over my face... :)

comment Sony Vaio dekstop wireless keyboard won't type certain keys
I knew a guy from China who disappeared off the web for 6 months. Apparently he was reading a comic strip and spewed tea all over his laptop. It took him 6 months to save for a system. ANYWAY, have you tried blowing out the keyboard with compressed air? Sometimes crumbs in the keyboard can make the key-presses not work.
