    GodMode and 1 button shut down for Windows 8

    The reason they're making me wait 30 days is I had tried connecting it to my new Windows Live email account that I setup for Windows 8, because it had been given an association it can't have anything else done to it for 30 days

    one quick key I use a lot in Windows 8 is ALT+TAB to scroll through the different windows I have open in the different panels, very easy to access.

    That shutdown in one click is a great tip! Very easy to add a short cut for: shutdown /s /t 0 then pin it to the taskbar.

    I have also created a shortcut to the Control Panel and made the GodMode folder to get access to all Window controls -

    To create GodMode go to your desktop create a New Folder and then call it: GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C} - you don't have to call it GodMode you can call it whatever you like, but the .{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C} needs to be after the name, GodMode just gives you quick easy access to pretty much all the tools you need in Windows.

    Who makes the drivers for your Scroll functions? I have a Fujitsu too and mine are done by Drivers | Synaptics the horizontal scroll isn't the best, but vertical works great.

    Alt+Escape toggles through anything on the taskbar, going to have a go at this god mode thing, sounds like a handy function.

    EDIT- You sir are a legend, funny stuff, no one has Fujitsu computers, anyway that driver sorted it out.

    Mine is old so it only has vertical and tap, my horizontal scroll is on the screen but that is a different driver again.

    Glad it worked, they do the drivers for Toshiba as well, very helpful piece of software for touchpads.

    GodMode is great for seeing all your settings, very very helpful for firewalls, printers, bluetooth, displays etc.

    due to the fact that I only had a 50GBs for my Windows 8 partition I had to increase the size as it filled very quickly with Windows 8.

    I used EaseUS Partition Master to drop the size of the partition directly after, and then increase the Windows 8 partition.

    Turns out my computer has a multitouch trackpad but either my old driver or running Windows XP didn't let it function properly, it allows zooming and horizontal scrolling.
    Thanks again for the link.

    Yeah pinch works, had no idea that worked for the desktop icons, do you know if a remote trackpad would work in the same way? I'd like a larger one for my desk as pinching is a bit hard on a small trackpad thingy.

    Just noticed Bing Lee have 8 for $57 with free postage, I have always found Bing Lee staff to be much more helpful than Harvey Norman's.

    It should do work just the same way, as long as the drivers are supported by 8.

    Must agree Bing Lee are very helpful, I was buying a LG DVD player from the store at Chatswood and they gave me a piece of paper with the code on how to make it play all region DVDs. Very helpful! I LIKE BING LEE!
