Windows 8 - no support for Plusnet Assist

Hi guys, I've just upgraded my laptop to Windows 8  Smiley & I realise that Plusnet Assist isn't supported. Any news on when it will be upgraded? Undecided

There's not at the moment I'm afraid, when/if we know we'll update you.

Re: Windows 8 - no support for Plusnet Assist

It was just a passing query. I upgraded my laptop to Windows 8 yesterday & noticed that it wasn't supported. I used the icon on my taskbar as a short cut to my account. I won't bother to look for an "Ap" for a while either!

It'd be best just to create your own shortcut to your account and put it on the Desktop or in the Quick Launch toolbar if you've activated it  Wink

I don't know how to do that,  Sad I just keep it in my favourites.

Re: Windows 8 - no support for Plusnet Assist

To setup a shortcut on your desktop :
1.  Right click anywhere on the desktop.
2.  Choose NEW then SHORTCUT.
3.  Input the web address you want into the "Type location of the item" box.  (e.g. https://portal.plus.net/view_my_broadband_usage/index.php)
4. Click Next.
5. Type in the name you want to call the shortcut.
6. Click done.
Finished, you should now have a shortcut on your desktop.
