WINDOWS 8 WARNING

windows-8-logo0817A reader was frustrated when Windows 8.1 didn’t work well with his Fujitsu scanner, and was tempted to revert to Windows 8.0. Warning: You can go back by using the Windows “Recovery Manager,” but you’ll have to re-install any programs you put on your machine. Our reader elected to download a new driver for the scanner instead.

Other readers tell us they’d like to go back to Windows 7. There’s an article at PC Mag telling you how to do it, but we don’t recommend it — it’s very techie. Better to familiarize yourself with Windows 8 shortcuts. (Google that term to find them.) If you’re like us, you’ll end up liking it better than Windows 7.
