Updated Win8PE includes x86 & x64 versions

This is an updated version of my original x86 winpe8 found here plus a new x64 version.  This updated version includes the apps listed below as well as some new ones, like Internet Explorer 10 and ClamWin Antivirus.  I have also applied any new updates to all the portable apps. I am no longer including the ‘press any key’ version, since most users seemed to prefer the version that does not prompt to press a key

Google Chrome 31 Internet Explorer 10
7Zip MBR Fix
ServiWin Regshot
Clamwin Antivirus ANote
Eraser Filezilla FTP
Foxit PDF Reader Irfan View
Multi Res CC Cleaner
Process Explorer Process Hacker
Tree Size Process Monitor
IMDisk Virtual Disk Defraggler
DriveImage XML Drive Snapshot
VLC Virtual Keyboard

All portable apps are listed in the Windows Start Menu under Portable Apps. If you prefer to use the Portable Apps menu instead then run the Portable Apps Menu shortcut on the taskbar.  The portable apps menu also allows you to download more apps by selecting the Apps>Get more apps. These freshly downloaded apps will only be available during the current session

It’s a large download (550 – 750mb) so be patient it can take 10-20 minutes (depending on your internet speed) to download. After downloading burn the boot-able ISO file to CD, USB or mount  the iso

Also be sure to check out my all new Dual Booting Win8.1PE with option to boot into either x86 or x64 versions

A BIG THANKS to everyone over at theOven.org and the Win8PE SE Project for the great work they have done in helping me create this win8pe disk.

Restart Windows 8 or server 2012 in a remote desktop session

Restarting  Windows 8 or Server 2012 when in a remote desktop session

When you’re in a remote desktop connection in Windows 8 or Server 2012 the quickest way to restart the PC is to go to the desktop and  press ALT-F4.   Pressing Alt-F4  inside an application will close that application, so make sure you are on the desktop.

The below Shut Down Windows screen will appear. Choose Restart to restart the system.

ALT-F4
