I installed win8 on my home pc & laptop over XP & vista respectively.
I am using classic shell in Windows 8 on my home pc & laptop.
On the PC "desktop" shows in file explorer but, on the laptop it does not show, please see the left attachment as opposed to the right one of the PC.
In addition, the laptop one shows the partitions spread out as opposed to the PC.
Anybody knows how to make the laptop show things as per PC? .....thanx ....nick
