    A name change for this forum?

    It would be another MS pointless change, if they changed the name of the desktop/laptop version.

    There might be a benefit if they changed the name for phones/tablets (Surface?).

    They had to skip names that have 9 in them so that old programs from the 1990's and 2000's years don't crash. Back then a lot of programs checked the version and if they see a 9, they think it's Windows 95 or 98 and crash, so they can't use names with 9
    in them anymore without breaking those programs. And since a lot of people like to use all those old programs (no reason to stop if they still work), Microsoft has decided not to break them.

    Microsoft: Windows 9 Doesn’t Have a Name Yet

    how to use "find in page" in Lumia 800?????

    The "Forward" and "Find on page" is not available. I found he following on some website, you might want to try it.



    Forward

    • Go to Internet Explorer 9 Mobile, tap the “…” to bring up the menu, and tap “add to favorites” (it doesn’t matter which website you do it on)
    • Change the “Name” field to “Forward” (or to make it stay at the top of the list, use “! Forward”)
    • Change the “Web address” field to the following code:

      javascript:history.forward()
    Find On Page

    • Go to Internet Explorer 9 Mobile, tap the “…” to bring up the menu, and tap “add to favorites” (it doesn’t matter which website you do it on)
    • Change the “Name” field to “Find on page” (or to make it stay at the top of the list, use “! Find on page”)
    • Change the “Web address” field to the following code (use Copy and Paste on your phone!):


    P.S.



    I can't paste the code here. I sent you the link via PM.

    I for one find it hard to believe that any company with a product release coming in less than a week doesn't have the produced named already. IMO, it's just more BS from that sight to keep the hit's going to their site. MS has a name picked out... will they make it known before 9/30. No.. but I bet they have named it.
