Windows XP Compatibility Mode missing on a fresh install of Windows 8?
So, I just did a fresh install of Windows 8 Professional (got a nasty little bug that was wasting resources left and right) and came to notice, this time around, Windows XP Compatibility Mode is now missing from my options in the list. It's required to
use a program I use often and, before the reinstall, the program worked without a problem (obviously when I had it set to compatibility mode). Is there a way to bring back XP compatibility mode in Windows 8? I should add, the previous install was an upgrade
from Windows 7 to Windows 8.
