Is the Pandigital SCN02 Photolink One-Touch Scanner compatible with Windows 8?


Are you using it currentrly? What is your current Operating System? I've been searching and can't see anywhate a windows 8 driver for this scanner.
Bu let me tell you, I'm using currently a Genius ColorPage, originally released for windows 98. Installed windows 2000 driver in compatibility mode for findows XP. There is no driver for Windows XP nor for Windows 7 and coldn't make it work in Windows 7. So I run it on a computer with dual bootWindows XP / Windows 7.
When I need to scan, I simply start up as windows XP. When finished scanning, reboot to windows 7
I Have Windows 7 on a 2 Tb HD SATA and Windows XP on 200 Mb IDE. Is more economical to have a dual boot then buy a new Scanner.
If your scanner won't run on windows 8, install on another HD or a partiton, Windows 7. doual boot Windows 7 / 8 work like a dream.

How to turn off windows 8/ IE


Windows is hard to get used to.
It might take some time time but its a lot faster than windows 7.
Here are some thing you might try before downgrading to Windows 7
Create toolbars on homepage

Create the menu tab on your homepage open webpage right click in the top toolbar you should see a number of toolbar options select the menu tab which will add File Edit View Favorites Tools and Help

Click on the tools at the bottom of the drop down list Managed add ons
Toolbar extensions Search providers and Accelerators you haveif don't need any of them you can disable or remove them.

Right click in the bottom toolbar (Bottom of Screen) select the toolbars option then Desktop this will add >> arrows in the bottom toolbar select the arrows you will see a list with control panelwhich has another list of all control panel items.
Downgrading to windows 7

When Windows 8 was released, Microsoft touted its advanced features, including a fast bootup time and the capability to use the same operating system for desktops, laptops and tablets.

At the same time, many of the design choices in Windows 8 were controversial and, as with most new operating systems, hardware driver support was initially spotty.

To support customers that prefer Windows 7, Microsoft created a cost-free downgrade path for some versions of Windows 8. If you aren't eligible a free downgrade, though, you have other options. Windows 8 Pro Downgrades
If you have the business-oriented edition of Windows 8, Windows 8 Professional, you have the right to downgrade to Windows 7 Professional, but you will need to have your own Windows 7 CD and product key to do this.

Doing the downgrade consists of installing the older operating system on the computer and then calling Microsoft for permission to activate Windows 7 in the event that the product key had already been used.

There is no charge to do this, but completing the process can be time consuming.

Windows 8 Consumer Downgrades
Consumer versions of Windows 8 don't come with free downgrade rights.
To legally downgrade to Windows 7, you will need to have both a Windows 7 CD and a product license that will allow you to install the operating system.

In other words, you'll have to pay for both operating systems.
If you are looking to buy a new computer and don't want Windows 8, consider buying one that still ships with Windows 7 preinstalled.

Simulating Windows 7
If you don't want to deal with the hassle or potential expense of downgrading, you can re create much of the Windows 7 user interface on Windows 8.

One option is to add third-party software programs like Start8, Classic Shell or StartIsBack to access the Start menu.

You can also tweak your system's settings to automatically boot to your desktop instead of the Windows 8 Start screen while also replacing some of the built-in applications that interface with the Start screen with other ones that are desktop friendly.

Why Not Downgrade
If you need to use a piece of unsupported hardware, you might not have the option of using Windows 8 at all.

As Windows 8 matures, however, more hardware drivers are becoming available.
Given that Windows 8 offers a powerful search tool as well as fast bootup times, it has some real advantages over Windows 7.

If you can either learn how to use the interface or are willing to modify it to better suit your preferences, staying with Windows 8 may be a better option for you.

Remove windows 8 and windows 8.1 back to windows 7


Buy Windows 8 Activation Key 64bit 32bit http://www.Genuinewindowkey.com/
Hearing all the negative sentiments toward the Windows 8 activation key OS made me really cautious in upgrading from Windows 7.
Finally, my Windows 7 became buggy enough that I decided it was time for me to go ahead and upgrade.
The days of reformatting my hard drive and reinstalling Windows OS (95, 98, XP...), when the computer started to act up, are over. I got the pro upgrade version....for a really great price on http://www.Genuinewindowkey.com/ .
I purchased all my software from them. They are the best online store I ever buy.
Installation took a while, with lots of downloading and installing drivers, updates...etc.
When it was finally done, computer was running a lot faster, and all of the weird behaviors of previous installation were gone.
Now as far as using the new OS, it really wasn't that big of a deal. Yes, it's different from the previous Windows; but after 2 or 3 days, I've picked up so many cool features that I truly believe it's a superior OS compared to the previous Windows releases. Really.
The interface is quite convenient once you figure out how to use all the features and what happens when you move your cursor around the screen.
Oh, yeah, and I don't have a touchscreen. Although I'm certain that a touchscreen would definitely be a more effective way to navigate Windows 8, I really have no problems using just the mouse.
So, there you have it. I love this new OS.

Hello,
1. option - Removing Windows 8 by installing Windows 7 over it*:
Go to the disc where you have the Windows 7 installer.
Then right click, click on Mount, when done, click on the Setup file and install Windows 7 over your current system.
2. option - Keeping Windows 8 and installing Windows 7 alongside it**:
Restart the Windows 8 system, before Windows logo shows up, keep pressing F12, then choose the disc you have Windows 7 .iso file on.
3. option - Running it from a DVD, but keeping/removing*** Windows 8:
a) go to the disc where you have the Windows 7 .iso file installer.
b) move the .iso file to a easily accessible place like Desktop.
c) then right click on the .iso file and click on Burn disk image, choose the DVD you want to boot from ( You need a readable DVD), and then check the checkbox which says " Verify disc after burning ".
d) click on Burn.
e) when that is done, close all open programs or/and windows and restart your computer, before Windows logo shows up, keep pressing F12, then choose the disc you have Windows 7 installer on.
Note - please read everything carefully. I suggest you to use the 3. method.
* - when in the setup, you have no option to go back to Windows 8.
** - this step might not work, because not all computers support that.
*** - you can choose to either create a new partition on which you will install Windows 7 or install it over Windows 8 by either kepping or not keeping your personal files.
Please reply to this solution: did it help you or not and what improvements in my solutions do you want, and rate my solution from 0-5.

I downloaded windows 8 preview and lost windows 7, how do I get rid of w-8 and get my w 7 back barry


If you have windows 8 CP/RP installed in your computer and you want to have windows 7 back, the only way is to make a clean install (format) of windows 7. Because Microsoft Windows does not allow downgrading to windows 7 from windows 8.

So grab a Windows 7 DVD or USB drive and make a format.

Hope this helps, Mrityunjay.
