[SOLVED] <-- If You're an Idiot

For example:

[SOLVED] Windows 8.1 Change PC Settings Not working [SOLVED]

"My USB mouse had come uplugged! I couldn't click anything - works now!"

Really? Awkwardly, the fix was just as nonsensical:
powershell -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $Env:SystemRoot\ImmersiveControlPanel\AppxManifest.xml

Why would anyone ever have to do that? Don't answer that.

Additionally, I can ping external addresses from the commandline and Windows Update connects and works, but antivirus/anti-malware programs can't reach the internet for updates, and chrome returns:


And since we're discussing Win8[.1], how about launching Google Chrome and Windows asking you, "How do you want to open this type of link (http)" and giving you the sole option of, "Continue using IE?" Who comes up with this crap? What I thought would be an easy fix was going into Default Programs and associating *.html with Chrome. Guess what? ITS NOT AN OPTION. I guess Microsoft finally showed them who's boss! Even when I drill down and set it manually, it doesn't return an error, but continues using Internet Explorer no matter what I set it to.

Now that's how to get market share!

God I hate Windows.

for extra special fun, try windows 8.1 rt!

my brother-in-law and husband have a running joke that i never thought of in terms of computers before, but perhaps it applies here. it goes something like this:

someone has been locked out of a house (either on purpose or by accident). they punch a hole in glass and you hear a sharp tense intake of breath as they say "i came in through the window"

maybe you have to be here (hear it) to get it...

anyway, breathe deep

And the Beatles sang, "She came in through the bathroom window."
