You DO get used to the 'new' way Win 8 operates.......
I had my brother in stitches the other day.
I was working on his machine (4yo Toshiba laptop with Win 7 32-bit)
and kept slamming the mouse into the bottom left corner, looking for
the right-click 'guts' menu, failing, and getting annoyed.
He wanted to know WTF I was trying to do. (He hasn't tried 8, nor does
he have any desire to).
When I explained, he was impressed, and reckons he'd like it in 7.
I'm trying to get him to try 8 in V-Box....the Toshiba is dying, and if he
replaces it, he'll probably end up with 8 anyway.
