            Hi All,

            At present, users can not configure those information on WinMetro. I will forward your concern to our program team for consideration.

            Thanks in advance.

            If you're happy with our products, please tell your friends, families and colleagues about IObit and IObit products! We'd be very grateful!

              1. Activated by pointing to the top left and right is easier for me, please consider to make a option in the setting for that.

              2. Make those metro things edit-able

              3. Create more option to the network option on the taskbar

                    Some much needed changes

                    *Calendar needs an option of changing from 24 hr to 12 hr mode, full month name, and ability to link to my calendar (google calendar as an example)
                    Nice weather app but it links to the wrong city, needs an option to select the city to display
                    *Facebook, Twitter & Bing are not working
                    *Need the ability to add & remove Apps
                    *The option to add our own shortcuts instead of the frequently used set that is generated
                    *The option of arranging position of tiles

                              Welcome here!:smile:

                              It would be good and helpful of you if you could please clarify your post a bit.

                              Are you hating the "Rubbish" of the Win8metro... or hating the "rubbish" of the application WinMetro?

                              Also please describe the "Rubbish" you are referring to... if I was your neighbor, I'd be happy to carry your garbage out for you if it was in a bag. Please put the Rubbish in a bag and tell us what it is... thanks.

                              Live long and prosper!

                              P.S. Bing is a MS search engine, like google, or yahoo. What browser are you using now... (Internet Explorer, Firefox, etc.)? It would be most helpful if you would provide all your system details in your userCP in order for us to help assist you... we will all be looking to your user CP to get these system details to offer assistance.
