    My Bing tile didn't appear to even have the option of being live anymore. Then I used it. When I closed out it seems to be live now, and the option is there to turn it off. Wierd.

    I am having issues with the sports app, it crashes frequently. I also had this forum freeze up my Surface completely, had to restart.

    I do probably use more complexity than most people. I have 4 user accounts, a 64 GB card, and about 8 GB remaining space on board. With nothing running I'm sitting at about 40% memory usage which seems high. But I never had issues with crashes until I installed the preview.

    I feel so stupid. I get it now. Bing is integrated into the search you can do from the charm bar. No wonder the tile is gone. This is such a great improvement, the results layout is pretty cool.

    Do we need to back up our files when we already used windows 8 before upgrading to 8.1?

    Good question. I was so excited about the update that I didn't even think about that!

    Upgrading from Windows 8 to 8.1 will retain all of your files & settings.

    IE (Store App, and Desktop) still shows mobile versions of various websites. I was hoping MS would fix the user agent string.

    Anyone know how to change the default so it will stick? I know you can F12 to the developer tools and change it, but it's only temporary and not global.
    Woo Hoo!!! I found how to change the user agent string and keep it for my Surface RT!!! This might also help for sites that aren't working for others anymore.

    See: Understanding user-agent strings (Internet Explorer)

    It's not for the faint of heart, as you have to edit the registry. But I can attest to it working!
