2 Windows 8 annoyances:
1) It does not seem to let you create a task in Task Scheduler: Every time you try to you get a message right at the end "Depreciated Task Error"
2) Can't find Print Server Properties (where you go to create a custom paper size)
In XP it was a piece of cake: Open Printers & Faxes then File/Server Properties
In Vista I think you right-clicked Printers off the StartMenu & it was an option from there.
In Windows 8, no sign at all. You can get to the list of available paper sizes in Advanced properties of an installed printer, but are only able to toggle it between Metric & English, the actual size settings are all greyed out, even as administrator.
