    New to Windows 8 - help please

    My family purchased me a new Windows 8.1 Lenovo computer for my 70th birthday on Tuesday.

    New to this OS System and touch screen I have a couple of queries.

    Why when I turn on my computer it opens in the old Windows 7 version screen, rather than the Apps version.
    I know i can just click the button to get to it, but would rather it was there all the time.

    Many thanks

    Hello Vic,

    You could use an option in the tutorial below to set to open to your Start screen instead of desktop.

    Desktop or Start - When Sign in or Close apps in Windows 8
