Help! Your Tip Isn’t Working On My PC

Wednesday, May 6th, 2015 by | Filed Under: Quick Tips, Windows 8

Sometimes not every tip works for everyone.  That happened to Lamar who wrote:

Why is it that sometimes when I try the tips you make, such as ‘The Best-Kept Secret Of Windows‘ for 04/13/2015, they don’t work? I followed the simple instructions on my 8.1 system and the search screen came up blank.

I’ve discussed before how there are several different versions of Windows 7 and of Windows 8.   That can sometimes make instructions work differently. In this case when you search Steps Recorder, it should turn up in the results. I just did it again now to test it out on my Windows 8.1  PC. There could be an issue with your search function.

You might also try search Record Steps To Produce A Problem.  Or go to your File Explorer and search for Steps Recorder on This PC.


Or you can go to All Apps and look for Steps Recorder there.


Hope one of these help.
