After the release of the Windows 8 operating system, the next most awaited operating system from Microsoft will be the Windows 9 operating system and according to our sources, the latest Windows OS will be released to the market in April of 2015. Researchers find that the new operating system will greatly help in boosting the growth and sales of Windows operating systems in the internet.

The operating system that was earlier known by its code name as Threshold is designed by keeping the users of Windows 7 operating system. Due to this fact, the operating system will be having more of a desktop environment rather than having a tile based Metro interface. From pour sources in the Windows support center, we were able to know that the operating system will be available as a free upgrade to Windows 7 users too rather than just for Windows 8.x users. Another news that we got from Microsoft support center is that the Redmond based company is all set to release the new update for Windows 8.1 users.

The Windows 8 Update 2 is available free for Windows 8.1 users, however users with earlier versions of Microsoft will have to pay a nominal amount for getting the update. The company has even enabled Windows 7 users to upgrade to the new operating system and for promoting people top upgrade from the five-year-old operating system, the upgrade price is kept low. However if you ask me, I would suggest that you wait till the latest Windows OS appears in the market as it is promised to be a free update for Windows 7 users too.

Windows 8 Support

       Windows 8 Upgrade

The best aspect of using an Android device is that you will get access to millions of useful and advanced apps. One of them is Google Music that enables the users to upload upto 20,000 songs to the cloud and then stream the music to the device with the Play Music app. Until now, Google didn’t provide the same app for Windows 8 devices and this was causing some issues to the Windows users.

Now, according to the Windows 8 support team, a third party app known as gMusic has been launched and this makes the Google’s music service compatible for Windows 8 devices. The Windows 8 users can download the app and open it to login to your Google account. Once the user has been logged in, the screen of the Windows 8 device would get filled with different icons for playlists, artists, albums etc., as in the case of the Android music app. This gMusic app for Windows devices also has an option to access sub-menus by simply tapping any icon and playing tracks. It also allows the users to add the tracks to a queue with a few taps.

Other interesting options in the gMusic app include swiping down from the top of the screen to bring up playback controls as well as shortcuts. The swiping option also allows the Windows 8 users to return to other menus in the app easily. However, according to the Windows 8 support team, the best part of gMusic app is its enhanced search functionality. The users can easily type in the home screen and the app will bring up the search results based on whether the entered query is an artist or album name or even a song title.

Playback Controls

                  Windows 8 Features

Another option provided by this wonderful Windows 8 compatible app is that it allows the users to snap gMusic into a small window on the side of the device’s screen. Hence, it becomes easier to see the song that is currently playing as well as the different controls to pause, play and skip tracks. The basic gMusic app is available free of cost and there are advertisements included in both the full screen view and snap view. With a minimal fee of 1.99 dollars, you can upgrade to an ad free purchase of the app.

In short, it is clear that the gMusic app is an essential one for the Windows 8 users to enjoy almost the same options available in Google Music.

Latest Windows OS

Latest Windows OS Help

The latest Windows OS, Windows 8, comes with Microsoft Internet Explorer already bundled into it. The Microsoft Internet explorer is the latest internet browser provided by Microsoft Corporation. As we all know, things may not function properly initially, and this is exactly what happened with Internet Explorer 10. People are facing various issues while browsing using this web browser. In this article, we will discuss some of the most common problems encountered using Internet Explorer 10.

Some of the usual problems faced are related to videos with IE10 on the latest Windows OS. So, let us see, some of the typical problems include Videos not loading, or sometimes they load but they load as black screen or freeze mid-play. Now, there can be many reasons for this problem. We need to look at them one by one and troubleshoot the issue.

Video playback is not a simple process, as it requires lots of components to work properly. These components include Java, Flash, Silverlight, etc. Then, these components or extensions may be causing the issues. You will find that in certain cases even the hardware acceleration feature in the browser causes these troubles.

Now, you need to analyze the issues step by step. You can begin with enabling or activating the ActiveX controls in Internet Explorer. This may be blocking the videos from playing. You also need to update the versions of Silverlight, Flash Player and Java, as this might be causing one of the problems affecting the video playback in the web browser.

ActiveX Controls

Latest Windows OS Info

Then go to the next possible problem. You need to check whether the required add-ons are activated or enabled. Check Microsoft Silverlight, Shockwave Flash Object, Windows Media Player and Java-plug in. Then, in order to check the enabled add-ons, you need to go to Tools, then Internet Options, and the click on Advanced and the Accelerated graphics. Then you need to select the Use software rendering instead of GPU rendering option.

In case this is not working for you, then you need to check the graphics drivers for your system and then update them to the latest Windows OS version as graphics issues may well be closely connected to the driver software installed.

This should fix your video loading issue. If not then you can explore the official Microsoft Web site for detailed problem resolution.

Windows 8 Gains 200 Million Users

Windows 8 Milestone

Windows 8 Sales

Because of strategic decisions made by Microsoft, people bore witness to a new Windows 8 milestone in history, with Windows 8 sales crossing the 200 million mark! Most technocrats and experts were skeptical about Microsoft’s bold move to tie phones, tablets and desktop PCs together.

Microsoft was reluctant to declare the sales report of Windows 8, only declaring the 100 million sales mark six months after release. Upon release, Windows 8 received mixed reaction from previous users who were unwilling to upgrade because of the non-intuitive user interface.

Microsoft’s Executive Vice-Preside Tami Reller broke the news during the Goldman Sachs technology conference stating, “We’ve surpassed 200 million licenses now on Windows 8, which is pretty stunning.”

However, Windows 8 predecessor Windows 7 was quicker to gain acceptance, with its sales hitting the 240 million mark in its first year itself. In comparison, Windows 8 was released over 15 months ago and still lags behind Windows 7 in sales performance.

The reason for this is Microsoft’s insistence of preferring touch screen users over regular keyboard-and-mouse users. The slow sales came as no surprise because regular users were unable to adapt to the completely new interface, which is smooth when operating on a touchscreen but plain awkward when using a hand-held optical mouse.

Users reported Windows 8 to be confusing because of the contrasting user experience when navigating between Desktop and Metro interfaces. Users felt they were operating two different operating systems at the same time, because of the clumsy meshing between Desktop and Metro.

Windows 9 Operating System

Windows 8 Success

Even though Microsoft tried to remedy some of the fervent complaints from Windows 8 users by ushering in Windows 8.1 update, classic Start menu, which was the default feature of every previous version of Microsoft Windows, remained to be a no-show! The update still continued to deny the user the ability to boot their system straight to desktop, without having to handle the Metro Start screen.

Some say the entire issue was blown up beyond measure. Many users were able to adapt to Windows 8 operating system, choosing to stay clear of the Metro Start screen altogether. Over time, more users got accustomed to the new features of Windows 8, which might explain how the Windows 8 milestone was ever crossed!

Microsoft is still trying to appease its users, with the Redmond headquarters pushing towards the all-new Windows 9 Operating System ahead of its schedule. All sources indicate April 2015 to be release date.
