My Desll D620 laptop is kind of old. Yet it can run XP and Vista. I installed Windows 7 on it since I don't like the Vista interface. My problem is, my RAM is only 1GB and installing 7 slowed down my computer. A friend advice me to install Windows 8 since this operating system doesn't use RAM. I'm surprised to hear it but I want to know if it's true? Is it the best OS for an old model laptop?
I used Windows Vista before. And when I want to copy some text on a PDF file, I will just highlighted the text and right-click on it to Copy. But this option doesn't appear on Windows 8. I tried but I can only highlight the text and unable to copy it. Do I need anything to do it right? If yes, what do I need?
My old computer has a hidden Administrator account which can be seen if I boot in Safe Mode. I'm not sure why but it doesn't even have a password, making my computer exposed. I want to know if I can put a Administrator account in Windows 8.1? If so, how can I put or change the password on it? I searched on the Control Panel and then go to Manage User Accounts but I did not see anything from there, just my own user account. Can someone provide a step-by-step instruction on this? Many thanks.
I would like to ask few questions. These are:
1. I want to download something but it is more than 3GB which may be too pricely since I am under a data plan, but is it considerable?
2. Since Windows 8.1 have already been released, what are its features that is lacking on the previous Windows 8?
3. What are the newest features of Windows 8 when it comes to performance, usage and solidity?
4. I purchased apps and installed it on my computer, can I install it again on another computer using the same license?
I really need all the important details about it. Thank you.
I was really peculiar on the new features that Windows 8 has. I tried the following:
- Resize the thumbnails in Explorer while holding the Ctrl key and the my mouse wheel.
- Modify the thumbnail sizes.
My query is, when modifying the size, can I do it permanently? Can I resize it from the folder only or all?
I migrated from Windows 7 to Windows 8. It was fine at first but yesterday, I can't seem to access the login screen. My computer will freeze after showing the Windows logo and then it will show a black screen. I tried the automatic repair but the same error occurs. Then I restored to the latest restore point but it doesn't work as well. I want to reset it instead but the problem is I don't have my Windows 8 disk with me. What should I do next? Please help me.
I am getting this very annoying issue on my computer. It automatically sleep even if I am using it. When it's on again, it will just sleep again.

I am running Windows 8 on my ASUS G10AC-ID003S. I don’t know how to resolve this. Please help me.
