However, if you use the Desktop mode in Windows 8 due to still utilizing a bunch of “legacy” apps, you have to surf through Windows Explorer methods to save something to your SkyDrive account every time. By adding SkyDrive to your list of right-click SendTo options in Windows 8, you can quickly save anything to your SkyDrive folder.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"><ul class="links"><li class="og_links first last"><a href="/blog/limited-genius">Limited Genius</a></li> </ul></div><p><a href="http://windowsitpro.com/blog/quickly-create-sendto-option-skydrive-windows-8" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://windowsitpro.com/blog/quickly-create-sendto-option-skydrive-windows-8#comments Windows 8 SkyDrive Skydrive Windows 8 Windows 8 Limited Genius Fri, 19 Apr 2013 11:30:00 +0000 66181 at http://windowsitpro.com Windows 8/RT's Task Manager on steroids http://windowsitpro.com/blog/windows-8rts-task-manager-steroids <div class="node-body blog-body">One of the cool features of Windows 8/RT is the new Task Manager. If you’ve not had time to play with this yet, you’re in for a treat. Gone, is the old Windows NT looking app, replaced with a streamlined interface to match the Windows 8/RT GUI.
