Windows Microsoft has released a video showing off some of the features coming to Windows 8.1. I must say, the new features all look like great additions (the new search looks awesome), but I'm much more interested in performance - the huge bottleneck for anything related to Metro. In addition, as part of the Windows 8.1 update, Windows RT users will get an ARM version of Outlook. Not that I care, but I'm sure some business users do.

Install the "Save as admin" plugin from Notepad++'s plugin manager. If you then try to save a file that requires elevated privileges, you'll simply need to confirm a UAC prompt rather than the operation being blocked.

For NetBeans, you could simply run the IDE as admin if you regularly access files in protected locations.

Thanks for the hing about the plugin - this sounds quite nice!

As for the netbeans - the biggest problem was with the update - regular NB can run just fine, but then the update occurs, it needs elevated privilages and thus reuire being run as admin... it's just a bit annoying, and given that I do not explicitely need to run metro apps then turning off UAC was waaay simpler...
