Windows 8 Bypass Modern UI

Q: Windows 8 Bypass Modern UI

In Windows Microsoft has prohibited the user to log on straight to the Windows Desktop through a system licensing policy Due to this policy you always have to start with the Modern UI If you re a power-user or you just want choice you should be able to boot your system straight to the desktop I m not against the Modern UI and I have no problem with the start screen but I m pretty sure I and many others don t need it Modern Bypass 8 Windows UI right from the beginning of a session It is also Windows 8 Bypass Modern UI annoying to use Windows 8 Bypass Modern UI some of the current solutions out there as all they do is skip this screen on every sign-in but this results in showing the start screen for a split second which can be a very jarring experience for the user After a lot of work and research I finally think I found a native way and maybe the cleanest solution to bypass Modern UI during sign-in Therefore I wrote an application to skip this behavior Modern UI is not disabled It all works only the sign-in behavior is affected Source A Guy

Preferred Solution: Windows 8 Bypass Modern UI

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

"Modern UI"? Is that what they're calling it now? LOL. It's actually the "Atavistic UI", because its full-screen, modal program launcher is reminiscent of running Hotwire on my Atari ST circa 1988, except Hotwire didn't have anything as stupid as Windows 8's "4 Corners". And while I haven't read the article, bypassing the login to the "Modern UI" doesn't mean you never have to work with it. After installing programs, to pin programs to the taskbar, I would have to use the "Modern UI" or open the Start menu folders, which Microsoft has made hard to get to as a side-effect of getting rid of the Start Menu and its menu with "Open" and "Open All Users" commands for the "All Programs" menu item. My advice for people who recognize the ridiculousness of the "Modern UI" is to stick with Windows 7. Why spend money on a non-upgrade and then have to run various hacks to get it to a usable state? And then spend even more money to get Windows Media Center back, a part of Windows essential to anyone using CableCard, a part that hasn't even seen bug fixes much less improvements? Just because they're not thinking doesn't mean you have to stop.

Hello guys, i got a BSOD, got it many times in a row, i think it's my ATI drivers, but i'm not sure, could you check it and tell me how to fix?

It's just restarting after a while of playing, after that it's turning on telling me that windows recovered from an unexpected shutdown, after it dumped all of the memory i can't turn it on for like 10 minutes, if i try to turn it on then it imediately turns off again. After waiting ~10 minutes it can be turned on again.

My Specs:
Windows 7 Home Premium x64
Intel Pentium Processor T4400(2.2 GHz, 800 MHz FSB)
ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4650
4GB RAM

It's a laptop, Acer Aspire 5738ZG to be exact.

There's an OEM for it for $100 on eBay. (AUD, 72.91 USD) I don't have a paid OS yet (Win10 IP, planning on Linux Mint) I'd like a retail copy of 7 at some point, so I've always got a transferable licence for future systems.
 
Basically the plan is to have Windows 7 retail dual-booting with XP x64.
 
But I don't want to waste $100 on XP64 if it's not any good. I love XP, and to be able to use it with a 64-bit CPU and 8 GB RAM is enough to make me want to buy this. I'm just not sure if there will be any major problems with the OS that make it no better than the 32-bit version. (I know of the little glitches already)
 
So basically, is XP64 worth buying at $100?

A:Windows XP x64 on modern PC

IMO XP is not worth $100 plus it is no longer supported by MS so no updates leaving it vulnerable, I would move to 7 which has support until 2020.  That will give you time to think out your next step, 7 can be bought for about the same $$.

A:Get Modern Browsers for Windows XP. Update

Firefox 46 works fine on my XP system. I have my "era appropriate" Lexmark Z816 Printer connected to that system. If the browser can't print it is probably better to copy paste to a word document and print that way, which is better in general since you can print only specifically what you want. On an older system that is no longer receiving security updates it is likely a good idea to keep the browser as up to date as possible.

I find when there is a pending update to the modern windows apps they won't work correctly. Then navigate to store and generally can see an update waiting. It then updates and seems to work fine. I've had it before where photos or calculator flash on screen and then disappear. I then see the updates are lurking. So basically a looming update seems to break functionality until you actually go and update.

Hello all,
We have some workstations running Windows 8 that we would like to get upgraded to 8.1. We originally deployed Windows 8 using a customized image with all the Modern UI apps removed, e.g. Mail, Calendar, People, Maps, News, Food & Drink, Health &
Fitness, Reading List, etc. I've run the upgrade on a test machine using "Setup.exe /auto:upgrade" as documented at https://technet.microsoft.com/en-ca/library/dn744271.aspx and it works; however, all the Modern UI apps are re-installed. 
Is there a way to perform this upgrade without all the apps installing, or, at the very least, not have the icons appear on the user's Start menu?

I highlighted the caret in red that I mean. It says to open Powershell and at then "Type the following command to remove all Modern apps from the system account", but I tried this but because I cannot put in the " | " in the command it only opens another command beginning, for instance:

In desktop mode of Windows 8 you can use the snipping tool (love that little guy) or Sent to One Note screen capture tool to grab a snapshot of any part of your computer screen. However, neither of these applications work in "Metro" mode. How can I snag a small screen capture in modern UI mode of Windows 8 on my PC? I know on my Surface I can take full screen captures using the Start Button+Volume Down key, but how about on a PC and how about something smaller than the entire screen?

A:How do you take a screen shot / capture of modern UI apps in Windows 8?

On a PC it is really easy to take a screen shot. Just press the "Prt Scr" button on your keyboard. Then open Paint (or any other image editing software) and press "Ctrl+V". The screen shot will get pasted into the app. And if you want something smaller than the entire screen then just select the portion you want and crop the image.

This tutorial demonstrates how to close 'Modern' Apps completely using the 'drag to the bottom of the screen' method; also, drastically reducing the 'hang' time with this method.

A:Close 'Modern' Apps Quickly & Completely in Windows 8.1

Nice demo but, can I say that... to be accurate like that requires dexterity and a healthy wrist.
One cannot miss that mark or else it must be re applied ?
Don't pull it down completely or too slow or hesitate or let go of the button - oops...

One of my 4 trackball buttons is set to close a window - program or app. That's it, one button to close anything.
Not the X in the upper corner. I don't use the X in the upper corner.

On the other hand, I like app switching and suspension of apps. They are instant on.
Not a fan of Alt F4?

After Nvidia GeForce Experience crashed during a GPU driver update, my modern apps (Store, Images, Groove, etc..) do not start and return error message "The app didn't start". My start button is unclickable and my search bar does not wor either.In event viewer I see an event ID 5973 from the source "Apps", stating that the activation of -some modern app-.App failed. This event happens every time I try to launch a modern app, click the start button or use the search bar.I have tried removing the TileDataLayer, replacing with a fresh one from another user, re-registering Store apps, clearing the Store cache, rebooting various times, and signing in with different users. The issue persists on other users as well.Is there anything I haven't tried yet that could be worth a shot?Don't worry if plan A fails, there are 25 more letters in the alphabet ;)

Native application that are now modern apps
As I mentioned, Internet Explorer is being replaced with Microsoft Edge in Windows 10. However, it's not the only native app being replaced by a modern app in Windows 10. The good old Search tool is being replaced by Cortana, and Calculator is being replaced with a modern app of the same name (Figure A).
 

 
The new Calc UI looks totally fugly.

Hi everybody,
I'm trying to update my Windows 10 system to the Anniversary edition.
When the installation process reaches 100% and the system is about to reboot I always get the message 'Modern setup host has stopped working' . All I can do is press OK, quitting the installation.
After several google searches I tried to:
perform a clean boot,unplug all the USB devices,update from the .ISO,disable graphic and sound cards
No way. Modern setup host won't work properly.
I don't have any antivirus or firewall installed.

Any idea on how to complete the installation?
Thanks

Go into your BIOS and turn off anything that says reboot on error.

I can't remember if this is Halt on All Errors or Halt on None or something like that. Your BIOS may not have this option, which would be a shame... but that would at least get us the bluescreen you're looking at which would help us to diagnose your problem.

What are the specifications for your system?
How awesome is your CPU?
Your RAM?

Ok, so I work in a pawn shop... And I am the closest thing to the unoffical resident tech guy for our store... And I recently came across a laptop that was taken in and defaulted without us having the password.

So my question for you is, with only access to the guest account, is there any way I can get around the password on the main account and be able to modify the accounts so that the previous owner's files are not passed on to the next coustomer.

And I'm also hoping for a solution that will allow me to get it done without something like a complete whipe and reinstall of windows

Is it possible to change the bypass key to something other than the Shift key in Windows NT?
 

A:Changing the bypass key in Windows NT

Not that I have seen. I think this is one of those things that is going to be either deeply buried in the registry, or that is hardwired into the OS.

You can tell Windows to not use the shift key at all by editing the registry.

Navigate to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

Add a string value (REG_SZ) of IgnoreShiftOverride

Set the value to 1.

A couple weeks ago the keyboard started ghost typing. Eventually the keyboard lost all functionality. So I ordered a replacement keyboard online. Unfortunately before it arrived, I accidently unplugged the computer as it was booting and now the system is stuck in the "Windows Resume Loader" screen. Neither the new keyboard, nor the old keyboard work to select an option to proceed past "Windows Resume Loader." I have tried a usb keyboard as well, without success.

Of course, i cannot boot in safe mode either since I cannot press f8 since the keyboard is broken.

My computer is on an AD domain and we have a WSUS server serving updates. However only certain categories of updates are auto approved so typically what I used to do with windows 7 is every once in a while click "Check for updates from microsoft" and this would bypass WSUS and reach out to microsoft for updates. Now this Windows 10 install USED TO have that button but it does not anymore. How can I restore this functionality as I am sure there are plenty of non-critical updates for Windows 10 over the lats few months that I am missing.

On my windows 8 pro machine windows keeps wanting to run the automatic repair upon boot. It always fails and I know as a matter of fact that there is nothing wrong with it. How can you disable, bypass, or permanently remove this "feature"?

A:Disable/Bypass Windows 8 Automatic Repair

As Robert has just mentioned, you can fix that by disabling the Automatic Repair feature right in Boot Configuration Database, here is how:
1. Press WindowsKey and type 'cmd' (without quotes), then hit Enter holding Ctrl+Shift pressed.
2. Confirm elevation for the Command Prompt application.
3. At the elevated command prompt type the following and hit Enter when you are done:
bcdedit /set {current} recoveryenabled No
This command will modify the boot entry that has been used to boot your current Windows 8 configuration and turn off Automatic Repair feature for this boot entry.
Now that when booting Windows 8, you will always have Automatic Repair disabled.
Or,
you can craft a separate boot entry that will have the Automatic Repair turned off.
1. At the elevated command prompt type:
bcdedit /copy {default} /d "No Automatic Repair"
This command will copy the default Windows installation entry used to boot Windows automatically. Typically this is your current Windows installation, however, if you have multiple Windows installations and want to modify currently booted Windows which is
NOT the Windows installation booted by defeault, use this command:
bcdedit /copy {current} /d "No Automatic Repair"
 NOTE: Everything that goes in quotes after the /d switch would be a text used to name the newly created boot entry, the one you'll see in the boot menu after the POST screen.
Now write down the GUID returned by either of the two bcdedit commands.
2. Configure the newly created boot entry and modify its recoveryenabled option:
bcdedit /set {GUID_YOUVE_MEMORIZED_OR_WROTE_DOWN} recoveryenabled No
Specify the GUID string returned by the bcdedit command above instead of the {GUID_YOUVE_MEMORIZED_OR_WROTE_DOWN} placeholder like:
bcdedit /set {de686ca2-e0c7-437e-b8d9-618bc5aad674} recoveryenabled No

I have a bunch of Windows 7 computers at an office that all use a Radeon X1300. That card is preventing upgrades to Windows 10 now because it's apparently "not compatible" with Windows 10.

Testing one of the systems, I simply removed the X1300 card, put in a newer card, did the Windows 10 upgrade, put the X1300 back in, and then manually installed the newest available Windows 7 driver. Everything works great.

Rather than having to swap out each card in each system just to do the upgrade, is there any way I can simply bypass the compatibility check instead? Especially since I know the card will work just fine... These computers are just for basic web browsing and word processing anyway.
 

A:Any way to bypass Windows 10 upgrade compatibility check?

Try adding this to the registry in Windows 7:

Find the following key
HKLM/Software/Microsoft/Windows/WindowsUpdate/OSUpgrade

and add a 32-bit DWORD called AllowOSUpgrade and set it to a value of 1.

Specifically how can I "tell" the Windows Automatic Updates feature to not list certain Net.Framework files for installation (ones that will not properly install) while Windows Updates continues to function normally with respect to other files? Or to put it another way, is there a way to temporarily list certain files for Windows Updates to ignore, until the problem with those Net. Framework files is fixed?

However, the new OS installation can be done without the CD/DVD drive?
You can copy the i386 folder from the Win XP CD to the HDD.
Then you should access this folder on the HDD and have to execute the winnt.exe in order to start the Win XP setup procedure?

There are many ways to "restore" a lost windows password... But I guess you are not involved in that stuff so it is pretty hard to explain it. Takes plenty of time. You have sensible data on your account? Otherwise I would advice you to reinstall windows. If you have sensible data you could try to take your harddisk to another computer and make an account on that which has the same name like yours now. You might be successful to copy your data then.

Windows Vista x64 decided to implement a 'security measure' by which all drivers must be 'digitally signed' to be allowed to install and run. I have a program which is compatible with Vista and x64 bit operating systems, however as its drivers are not digitally signed I cannot run it correctly - I recieve the message 'Windows requires a digitally signed driver' and access to the driver is blocked.

Is there a method of bypassing this?

When you boot your system hit F8 and you can bypass it there. You will have to do this every boot. There are a couple applications out there that will do this for you but the names escape me right now.

Less than a month after disclosing a Windows User Account Control bypass, researcher Matt Nelson today published another attack
 
that circumvents the security feature and leaves no traces on the hard disk.
 
This time, the bypass relies on Event Viewer (eventvwr.exe), a native Windows feature used to view event logs locally or remotely.
 
Nelson said he figured out a way to use eventvwr to hijack a registry process, start powershell and execute commands on Windows
 
machines; he collaborated with fellow researcher Matt Graeber on a proof-of-concept exploit, which was tested against Windows 7
 
and 10. A report published today by Nelson said it would work against any version of the OS that implements UAC.

IDG News Service - The Windows Secure Boot mechanism can be bypassed on PCs from certain manufacturers because of oversights in how those vendors implemented the Unified Extensible Firmware Interface UEFI specification according to a team of security researchers The researchers Andrew Furtak Oleksandr Bazhaniuk and Yuriy Bulygin demonstrated Wednesday at the Black Hat USA Secure exploits demo Windows 8 that bypass Researchers Boot security conference in Las Vegas two attacks that bypassed Secure Boot in order to install a UEFI bootkit -- boot rootkit -- on affected computers Secure Boot is a feature of the UEFI specification that only allows software components with trusted digital signatures to be loaded during the boot sequence It was designed specifically to prevent malware like bootkits from compromising the boot process According to Researchers demo exploits that bypass Windows 8 Secure Boot the researchers the exploits demonstrated at Black Hat are possible not because of vulnerabilities in Secure Boot itself but because of UEFI implementation errors made by platform vendors The first exploit works because certain vendors do not properly protect their firmware allowing an attacker to modify the code responsible for enforcing Secure Boot said Bulygin who works at McAfee The exploit is designed to modify the platform key -- the root key at the core of all Secure Boot signature checks -- but in order to work it needs to be executed in kernel mode the most privileged part of the operating system This somewhat limits the attack because a remote attacker would first have to find a way to execute code in kernel mode on the targeted computer The researchers demonstrated their kernel-mode exploit on an Asus VivoBook Q E laptop but some Asus desktop motherboards are also affected according to Bulygin Asus released BIOS updates for some motherboards but not for the VivoBook laptop the researcher said He believes that more VivoBook models might be vulnerable Asus did not respond to a request for comment sent Thursday The second exploit demonstrated by the researchers can run in user mode which means that an attacker would only need to gain code execution rights on the system by exploiting a vulnerability in a regular application like Java Adobe Flash Microsoft Office or others The researchers declined to reveal any technical details about the second exploit or to name the vendors whose products are affected by it because the targeted vulnerability was discovered recently The issue that makes the kernel-mode exploit possible was discovered and reported to the affected platform vendors over a year ago Bulygin said At some point after enough time has passed the public needs to know about it he said Several other issues that can be used to bypass Secure Boot have also been identified and their disclosure is being coordinated with Microsoft and the UEFI Forum the industry standard body that manages the UEFI specification Bulygin said quot Microsoft is working with partners to help ensure that secure boot delivers a great security experience for our customers quot Microsoft said Thursday in an emailed statement https www networkworld com news -researchers-demo-exploits-that-bypass- html page nbsp

Or, if there is a way to preserve the stats in an uninstall/reinstall scenario, that would work for me.  In the past, the stats get reset in an uninstall/reinstall of Microsoft Solitaire Collection.
Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

A:My "Modern" Apps have stopped running for the umteenth time in my Windows 8.1 Pro

The answer turns out to be quite simple.  When I added the "Authenticated Users" user in the security tab for my Users folder, and propagated the changes down through the directory tree, any folder that had the ALL APPLICATION PACKAGES (or
some other metro based user account) user got hosed.  (The ALL APPLICATION PACKAGES user got dropped).
This, combined with the fact that, I guess, the metro apps run under some user other than the logged in user or depend on a software component that does the same, AND that when folder access is denied to the metro app, the program just closes with no error
message, created the problem.
I understand that the metro app programmers are just too cool to need to bother with such error popups ...
Once ALL APPLICATION PACKAGES is added, the metro apps start working again!
