    all of your work is absolutely helpful or me! Thank you very much~
    By the way, windows journal should be added. I thinks some of 2012 users definitely want some similar features of windows 8 on tablets.

    Anyway I really appreciate you again~

    If you need transparent taskbar โ€” just use personalization and download any windows theme. Apply and you got a nice W8 taskbar. It will be great to automate this and add theme to “converter”.

    I love your site, but I have one more thing left to get working that has been driving me crazy.

    If you enable the Hyper-V Role in 2012 it disables Sleep / Standby mode completely. Haven’t been able to reverse this yet.

    Any takers?

    • Arris says:

      Thanks for your comments! ๐Ÿ™‚ Unfortunately after installing Hyper-V, you can’t indeed use these features anymore. The only remedy is to uninstall Hyper-V but that’s probably what you don’t want. I think this limitation has something to do with the fact that Hyper-V is a type-1 hypervisor, although it seems like a type-2 one (wiki).

      • Tim Baker says:

        You can not use Sleep or Standby or Hibernate while running the Hyper-V role because when running hyper-v your desktop operating system is actually for all intents and purposes running on top of the hyper-visor as a virtual machine. Therefore, if you set it to hibernate or sleep, not only could you loose your systems state, if you have any other vm’s running, those will crash as well.
        There are other power-saving features you could enable such as having the processor slow way down and disks shut off (providing again you are not running any other vm’s other than your desktop.)

    You also need to add this step


    For enabling the windows search service. You don’t need to install the file services role anymore in 2012, just the Windows Search feature and you’re good to go!

    • mark says:

      agree that you should add “Windows Search Service” to the 2012. outlook 2013 asks for it.

    For – Quick Switch Between User Accounts, if you install the Classic Start Menu, you see the option for Switch User… this work well.
