Windows 8

Postby alan.watson Sat Oct 27, 2012 5:59 am

Having just installed Windows 8 - I wonder if there is any way that I can get Mailwasher Pro to show up on the Metro Interface or whatever it is called - Think it might be The Modern Interface.

I really want to somehow display the System Tray rotating Icon which says I have new E-Mails when I am in that Tiled Interface.

If I switch to the Desktop Interface I can see the System Tray - but not while I am on the Tiled Interface

Anyone any ideas.

Love Windows 8 by the way

You might ask in the forum for mailwasher...

Thanks for the good reviews with Windows 8. I am now thinking of switching from 7 to 8. ;)

I'm thinking of switching from Windows 8 to Windows Blue.

I am thinking of switching to W/9 because W/8 is poor and W/blue is supposed to be much of the same.
Anybody using W/8 and does not like it.Instead of going back to W7 just download Classic Shell which gives you the start menu and all programs back on W/8.

Can you try this updated version and see if it works? This bug should have been fixed here :thumbsdown

I'm having a lot of trouble now with Windows 8. Almost all apps would not support this new OS. I just hope there won't be an issue with Firetrust too.
