I use Windows 8.1 on my desktop and use a Windows Phone 8. I can't speak whether or not other phones have this as well as I don't use them. The OneDrive integration works great and I routinely save files on OneDrive to access them later on my phone. The syncing happens automatically and in the background and I've never had issues with it. OneNote integration ...

To be able to explain what is happening, allow me to go in to a little bit of background as to how Windows Phone handles media files. When you drag and drop files from your computer on to the phone, while it may appear that you are creating an identical structure on your phone, there is in fact more processing taking place in the background. When you ...

Problem solved. I'm using MS Windows 8.1 Pro N (OS) so I just installed the "Media Feature Pack" for the N/KN-Edition... now it works like a charm.

The app's not working on my wife's 930, and hasn't been for some time. I think TrueCaller dropped support for Windows Mobile a little while ago. I've told her to use the built-in Blocked Calls feature whenever she gets a call from a scammer, but TrueCaller was great for this while it was still working.

Sounds like a firewall issue rather than the application itself. Try disabling your antivirus/firewall and try again to see what happens. Disable Proxy If you are using proxy to connect internet please disable that, refer to the steps below to disable proxy: Press “Windows Key” + “R”. Type “inetcpl.cpl”. Go to Connection. Click on LAN Settings. Check the ...

Have you tried unlocking the phone while connected? Just enter your pin and get to your phone's Start screen and see what happens

A true laptop-esque setup is probably not possible on WP8.1 (though W10M should help there). However, if you're willing to go through Remote Desktop software, that's an option. There are two high-quality remote desktop clients for WP8 that I know of, both just called "Remote Desktop": The one from Microsoft is "official" and free, and should work pretty ...

If I understand the question correctly, Project My Screen should do the trick.

It usually takes about 24h for reviews to show up, sometimes even longer. This is due to the refresh cycle of the store.

If you use Visual Studio 2013 Express for Windows, then attempt to deploy the app to your phone, it should automatically take you through getting a license for free. Note that this will only work for deploying apps directly from your PC, not publishing them to the app store.

You can mount a WP8 (or Android) phone on Windows 8, and have it appear more or less like normal removable storage. You can't do this with an iPhone. You also have Office by default on WP8 (whereas Office on iPhone and Android requires an Office 365 subscription).

There is no access to the operating system files on a Windows Phone, this means that even if it is there (and not cut down for an operator specific model), it is not accessible by an end user, as it is not exposed as a browsable list in the settings.

No, it's not possible to synchronize contacts between your PC and phone via USB. To synchronize your contacts from you phone to your PC and vice versa you need to use a cloud service like Outlook.com. You can find instructions for how to do it here.

You can share WiFi logins across devices, which means if you have logged into a WiFi with your phone it automatically becomes available on your Windows device as well. With Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1, Microsoft introduced universal apps, which lets you use the same app across multiple devices.

Maybe you can try this, Mark and Delete all pictures from phone itself (Don't delete from PC client). It may show a message that some pictures can't delete. Ignore it. Then start sync with PC. Actually this is caused because of multiple thumbnail/shortcut for a same image. It will not consume your space not much. But still irritating.
