Hi guys

I have just bought Mrs DD a nice shiny new Sony Vaio laptop that has win8 installed on it.

Now I'm having to learn the new system as I've never touched before myself and I'm a bit more tech savvy than my darling wife, although as I'm sure you have worked out already i'm far from an expert either  Cheesy

I'm doing pretty well so far, worked out the basics of moving around the screens etc, but I have come to a snag, I can't seem to download apps rom the app store.

Origianlly I set up the laptop with the wrong location, no big deal i sorted that out thinking that would cure the issue but to no avail.

Any ideas anyone?

It sounds like you might be using an off line account, you will need an on line or Microsoft account to be able to download apps.

I've sussed it, I changed the password and rebooted the laptop and we are now cooking with gas  thumbsup

I rather like win8, it's very different from what came before (I never used win7!!) so is taking a little getting used to but it's pretty good actually

Can't agree with you there DD, the whole Metro and Apps bit of Win 8 is complete and utter old pants IMHO  lol

As you will find out when you use in on a desktop PC one day.
