    I'm still waiting for the final release of W8.1 before I put it back on my laptop/tablet. The RC was just to buggy for me, for a change.

    Yes. Microsoft re-architected Windows Search to include external memory card support.

    You can do it two ways-

    1. Settings, Make default save location
    2. Add folder to library, and make it default.

    They did, but they created a user issue finding it. They hid libraries so now only advance users really know about its functionality. I don't think you're given an option to use libraries when you put an removable storage.

    Libraries are not hidden, they're under This PC.

    I don't think right clicking and choosing show libraries requires a very advanced user. I would also hardly call it genuinely hidden since it is a beta and Instructions are readily available on line
