I've been using computers my entire life, and Windows 8 confuses me too.
Not because I haven't figured out how to use it, but because I am confused at how they could F up a perfectly stable and usable Windows 7 by slapping a pointlessly flashy and uncustomizable UI in our face and telling us "We like it".
I am confused as to why we have to learn arcane keyboard commands to do things we could do with a GUI in Windows 7. How are excessive keyboard commands considered acceptable UI design in 2013?? I thought we were supposed to be increasing usability for end users???
Listen up Ballmer. 97% of us are not liking windows 8. The statistics back up my statement, no matter how many paid Microsoft shills respond to this thread.
Stop calling people shills and you might find people take you more seriously. Do you really value your own opinion so highly that you feel that it's impossible for anyone but a paid shill to like Windows 8?
Back 2 the question at hand.. Tyvm Mystere. Please believe No offense towards the others I totally agree.
If I find myself using this Win 8 as I wld have Win7 and I can not seem to find where I actually put or installed items.
outside of the search included within Win8 which is apps or settings and I do have Start 8 installed which makes it extra mind boggling. If this is a start I wld greatly accept and appreciate help
Lady8- Windows 8 isn't really that confusing once we learn a how to accomplish a few things. There's a general gist to it.
On your start screen with tiles just do a right click▬ click All apps in lower right corner▬ scroll to the right and you will see all the Apps (Programs) on your pc.
- Instead of clicking folders to see what's inside, they show folder name & list its contents right below it.
It's a good idea to keep Desktop tile in top left corner of Start. Then you can go to Desktop by clicking the tile -OR- pressing Enter on keyboard as long as you haven't right clicked a different tile.
