Windows 8.1 Wireless Network Profiles

We just got new laptops preloaded with Windows 8.1 Pro.  One of the things we noticed was that there was no way through the GUI to remove wireless network profiles like you could do in Windows 7.

After some hunting around we found that the only way to remove them was through the command line.  If you're looking to remove your old unused wireless profiles, here is how you can do it:

Open a CMD prompt and type:  netsh wlan show profiles

Windows 8 Task Manager

I've been playing with Windows 8 for a little over 24 hours and so far so good, I'm still getting used to the Metro UI.  One thing I do like is the new task manager in Windows 8.  You can now see the current state of the processor as it changes speed, if you have your computer configured to use the balanced power options.  I also like the new layout and performance graphs.  I think I'll give Windows 8 a full month before I decide whether or not to stick with it.  I do miss the start button and seriously hope the final version of Windows 8 has the ability to turn off the Metro UI.

I just got my release candidate preview of Windows 8 up and running.  I was going through my typical list of programs that I install on fresh system and ran into this interesting error message regarding Adobe Flash and Windows 8.
