I like metro....because it helps me with my work
on the taskbar you have Explorer, but you can only attach about 10 folders to it. This is not enough for me, so created everything I use in the metro. The only thing I left there is the desktop icon, the others are mine.
When I hit Explorer and a folder that I need to open, then I sometimes have to do this 4 time, so all together 5 clicks to get where I wanna be.
Those shortcuts are created in Metro, so I go to Metro, click a 2d time and I am where I wanna be.
Now one can put all the folders on the desktop.....like in Windows 98, one can overcome this, but who wants that.
No thanks, I use the Metro and again where everything I open puts me back on the desktop. So no app's for me.
And yes, I said this on different occasions, but apparently nobody reads it.
So please let the Metro where it is, only some minor adjustments are needed, for me anyway.
We just wanted this choice of disabling or skipping the Metro for a new OS because the system currently doesn't work well for us as much as it does for you. IT BLOCKS THE DESKTOP AND ITS ALWAYS FULL SCREEN on single monitors. If we we have this option to disable/enable Metro, we would be more pleased to use Windows 8 and you could still use it the way you do right now. In this case, everyone wins, except those inside MS who are trying to push this close-minded idea.
Why is it so hard for fanboys like you to understand this and insist that what you see now is close to perfection?
You say that people don't read your posts? Have you tried reading carefully the posts of concerned people on this forum that has a plethora of mixed opinions on Windows 8?
That said, I got you beat both in number of clicks and number of folders. I have a dozen folders inside a toolbar on my multi-row taskbar. One click each to open, no fiddling with menus, and no jarring screen transitions.
in my folders (so second click via the taskbar OR metro), I have subfolders, too many to put on the taskbar, so then I need more clicks to open each subfolder.
But on the metro I can put the subfolder on the screen, so I need only 2 clicks.
Vertex, the metro is full screen and that is 1 of the adjustments I ment.
And yes long time ago I mentioned on the board that MS should give the installer the possibility to personalize Windows to his needs.
I don't say Win 8 is close to perfection, but I do say this is the best we ever did get.
Sure it is not perfect, but hé Office 2010 or 2013 is not perfect either.
