Windows Operating Systems

Since when is making advancements going backwards?

micro$oft seems to have a history of removing ability to use purchased programs that work, to upgrades that void the use of purchased products.

With every advancement in operating sytems, from DOS-win3.1-win95-win98-XP-Win7-Win8 there has come LOSS to the user of the previous operating systems.

Loss of time, for retrainning for microsoft changing primary standards.

Late November 2012 i bought a new HP Laptop with Windows 8;
Windows 7 RT, perhaps they are even confused on the version?

The advertisement said Windows 8, but when i typed //say $os
on IRC, to tell what OS i was running. i got a return of 7.
Which means i was running Windows 7,
then i find that Windows 8 is also called Windows 7 RT.

A few days after i purchased this unit, there were
already many review pages out on the net that refered
to Windows 8 as Vista 8.





Cant find 'show desktop.scf'

Search


File Exlorer (Windows Explorer replacement) - Windows 8
File Explorer - Search - There is NO Search option whe you right click on a directory such as [c:\] , you get popups. One of them is Share.. WTF! - Like i want to SHARE things when i can't even find a way to FIND the files i want to SEARCH for!!!!


Successful Search! - Using mIRC to search for files in directories directories

Most kids and newer computer users have no clue as to what rocked the 90's.
IRC was THE place to be for power at your fingertips. And it still works.
Power to the People is still through IRC. It's just been under-promoted for 10 years.


And using This Script: in aliases

-
/findfile {
  window -l @SearchResults
  return @SearchResults $findfile($1,$2,0,@SearchResults)
}
menu @SearchResults {
  Open Folder: { run explorer.exe /select, $+ $sline(@SearchResults,1) }
  Open File: { run $sline(@SearchResults,1) }
}

-

Use command example:
/findfile c:\directory\path\ *filename*.htm


Example:

/findfile c:\Jedi\c\ *.*

Search Results: in mIRC Custom Window:
