I have just purchased a HP Elitepad 900. As soon as it arrived, I updated Windows 8 Pro to Windows 8.1 Pro. Since everyone here was so helpful with my dumb questions about my Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (which surprisingly is still working) I’m hoping that I can get some answers to more dumb questions about my new HP tab.
First and foremost, I bought this unit because it has 64G internal memory, plus it has a slot for an SD card.
I get all my magazines now from Zinio. I live on my boat so I have no room for paper mags in the numbers I subscribe to.
I can (and have done so) download the Zinio App to the Icon display of Windows.
However, I much prefer to work on the old “desktop” view of Windows.
I can’t get the Zinio reader to download to this side, so that I can have an icon on that screen. I can access it by using IE to go to www.zinio dot com etc but I can’t get the Zinio Reader itself to install.
Am I misunderstanding the way the tablet treats Windows 8.1? It looks the same to me as the Windows 8.1 that’s on my laptop.
Second, is this tablet more correctly referred to as a Windows Tablet, even though it is not anything to do with one that they built. It’s clearly not an iPad, and it doesn’t run anything Android. All I can see that’s left in the forums is Windows.
Thanks for any help on these. (there will be more I’m sure)
