I was wondering what is considered an "app"?

Original title:

OneDrive App sync issue on Windows 8

I'm trying to do a factory reset on my lap top and wanted to synchronize some of my previous data after.

When the sync 'Apps - the list of the apps I have installed' with Onedrive times connected to your Microsoft account, I was wondering what is considered an "app"? It of just something I bought in the app store or is this all I have previously installed/downloaded on my computer? For example, if I downloaded Diablo 3, which is an application or a file separated I should have saved on a USB? What I have to redownload all apps or with synchronization, it does it automatically?

Thank you.

Unfortunately the term "app" has recently come to mean something of very
specific to many people: a program that is called when you click on a
tile in the subway/modern interface.

But this isn't what this means for everyone. As far as I'm concerned,
"app" is simply short for "application", and "the application is a Word.
This basically means the same thing as the "program". So for me, all the
the programs are "apps".

That means Microsoft by "app" in this particular case, I have no idea.
They have confused a lot of people with their non-traditional use of the
Word and they are inconsistent in its use.

    Android has many applications and programs that start automatically. Some are required, others use just battery. Video applications and music tend to run for the digitization of libraries, weather far too often that you set in the app Chances are you do not want to use a large number of them. You can turn off or even remove most but a word of warning, check what it does before delete you. There are uninstallers of app on the market that give sort of priority through color. Red-leave only Amber-you can, but make sure... Green-Safe to delete. I think that it is one that retains a copy in case you make a mistake and allows you to restore it. Have a read through them that I don't remember the name of it.

  • Working on a proof of Concept and I was wondering what does everyone out there?

    So I'm in the middle of a VINE, but we're not replace desktop users, while giving them an additional office so that they can TEST.  Users are currently using Windows XP, and the new ENVIRONMENT will be Windows 7.  So my question is what does everyone out there in this situation? You are doing the same thing and identify USE cases and then using double desktop computers during the trial period? Also, I know I'll run into compatibility issues moving from XP to Windows 7, applications how did all handle this part? ThinApp?

    It is not a VMware tool, but Microsoft's Application Compatibility Toolkit might be able to help to identify potential problems with Windows XP applications and correct or mitigate them before moving on to Windows 7. You can download version 5.6 here: http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=7352. I've used it before, and it is generally very useful. As with ThinApp though, it really helps to know your applications when using the law.

    In regards to adoption by users of test, I found that if you give them two options during the trial period, they have inevitably will gravitate back to their old familiar on the new desktop view traditional PC, even if the desktop view works better. Best results I got were from the old PC power off and give users customers light to test with, as the other posters suggested. Another option would be to change the shell of the user in question (on their existing PC) to the VMware View Client is everything that manifests when they connect. All their stuff would still be there on the PC, but they could not really go in the way that they are familiar with, that they would have to use the desktop for the duration of the test. Then, when the test is complete, you can change the shell just back to Explorer.exe.

    The shell can be set by using the following registry value:

    HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\shell

    Just change this to Explorer.exe the full path to the Client view.

  • What is the best app/security software on a Mac?

    I have a MacBook Air (2015) and I was wondering what my options are, as far as security.  I want something that will take a photo using the iSight camera if a wrong password is entered in trying to connect to my MacBook and will send an alert on my phone?  I've seen a lot of options with Android phones, some have even alerts that give you a GPS telling you where your device, if stolen, would be, but I don't have an android phone...  So does anyone have any suggestions on software like this, or any other type of security software? Preference on the Mac App Store, but is the software is reliable I would consider buying it online or in a store.  Thank you!!

  • For the iPad 2 air, what is the best app for note taking allows you to use a removable keyboard and a stylus? Which is also a stylus good to use?

    I am looking to buy an iPad 2 air to take notes in college classes and I was wondering what is a good software that allows an external keyboard (like a laptop) to type notes and also allows the drawing with a stylus? What is a good pen that is compatible with the app and the iPad 2 air?

    If you really want to use stylus to take notes or draw you should go for iPad Pro with Apple pencil. Nothing else offers good experience especially for hand writing. If you ok with drawing then only pencil FiftyThree is a good choice on iPad 2 Air (but again, it is much worse in my opinion, then iPad Pro + Apple pencil). FiftyThree is also one of the best (paper) apps for note taking (and it works well with their pencil).

    The keyboards are wide work system and not a dependent application. You can go for any model of the 3rd party like you which is compatible with iPad air 2. Advice covers the Apple Smart keyboard are specific to the Pro (they need specific for Pro iPad connector).

  • What happened to the apps

    I was wondering what happened to 'video zone' and 'facebook for android '.

    now I'm thinking that the video box developers do not support 1.5 more. at least his party 1.5 market but on my htc hero friends and I think that those who run on 2.1 not really sure if.

    but facebook for android really? What happened to it, I installed it, but someone was going to the market and asked me if I could check and I did. (being the nice guy that I am = P) and low and behold it is no longer available for download?

    I guess Im just a little confused.

    One last thing is that someone tried the merger called feature (located in the options when in a call). Im guessing it is just another way of say 3 way calling. Anyone used or know what it is and what it does?

    Thanks for the comments.

    Yes Facebook for Android is no longer supported by phones Android 1.5. Your phone will need to obtain an upgrade to be able to update the application.
