Old news, but I only found out today... ...since Windows 8, shutting down and turning on a Windows PC does not achieve the same outcome as a Restart. https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/all/what-is-the-difference-between-restart-and-shut/d512fa31-3bce-49bc-bada-11eda28e3b7f If you're trying to clear up little issues a Restart will clear the RAM, whereas a Shutdown writes the RAM to disk and reloads it on start up... ...I find I restart my work Windows 10 laptop (Surface Pro) nearly daily, but my music laptop (also Windows 10) typically gets turned on for a music session then turned off - I'll commence adding some restarts into that mix...or turn off "Fast Start" (instructions are in the link) cheers Mike
Hey folks, I just made the leap to Windows 8, and I'm determined to to avoid iTunes (for the standard performance reasons). I've had a bit of a look around and initially I was leaning towards Foobar or something similar, but I'm also after something that will airplay to my receiver. From the looks of it, AirFoil and AirParrot don't work at this point. Something to do with applications being sandboxed when they run in metro. I've still got an iPod, so syncing ability would be good, but I can use DoubleTwist or something to get around with that. Does anyone have any suggestions or experience in doing this? I'm two days old with Windows 8, so forgive the ignorance if there is an easy fix here. Cheers.
