Znod has said it, live with what you have, move ahead, get over it and enjoy. GIVE IT AN INCHE and IT WILL TAKE YOU A MILE.
HO HO HO! - happy turkey,
Most of the hate to Windows 8 comes from the startscreen, which really makes me question why?
press Windows button, type the item your looking for and you have it instantly! "NO" mouse clicks at all, PEOPLE!
Metro is BEAUTIFUL , and the app store is pure entertainment, I no longer need to download random exe files from the internet only to find out they have some crap code to destroy your system, Windows Store makes everything safe , clean and good quality , that's just more icing on top of your cake. And the entire OS itself is snappy(faster) and more polished than windows 7, everything on windows 7 is in windows 8. I mean what else could you ask for?
I just don't know whats going through the minds of those who hate windows 8 o_O. Are people really this scared to change? cause I am really not, I am enjoying it.
Edit: Ofcourse I've heard many people say bad thins to Win7 when it was released, "I'll stick with XP", and sh*t like that. but look at Windows 7 now.
I cannot argue with one thing you said, use it, give it a chance, you will love it (maybe a little).
I use the Touchpad on my Notebook and I've found if I click on the right click section it brings up a bar that I can click the backward arrow to get out of the link window and back to the original window.
Sorry for the long winded explanation but that was my way of telling you the situation and hopefully you understood what I was on about.
Hi Joan, thought you were talking about W8.
Are you using the Metro browser?
Then, ya, no X in the top right of the browser.
You can put the cursor at the top center, when it turns into a hand, left click and hold, then drag it straight down to the bottom of the screen and it will close.
Or, when you switch to other Metro apps, put the cursor in the top left corner, you will see thumb nails of the apps that are opened, you can right click these and then 'Close'.
I always use a browser from the desktop, easier for me
I have a few of my forums pinned to the start screen so I can just click on one to bring it up then when I've finished I can just click Alt + f4 to close it. I get on great with that and there's usually an arrow at the side of the page to move back and forth, the problem is if someone has included a link and I click on that I hadn't found a way to leave the link and be back at the page where I started. I have no idea if my apps open in IE10 or some other browser, I haven't installed any other browsers.
There are two IE10 browsers.
Metro and desktop.
Does the one you're using look like this:
This is the Metro browser, move your cursor to the top and right click to get the options, close an opened page or open a new page.
All your open pages will show up here.
This is the desktop browser, open IE10 from the desktop.
IM note using w8 for a little while and I must admit that at first I had to get used to it because trusty things were not there, such as a start button. But I gave it a try, downloaded the classic shell and found that it actually is quite stable, seems faster than w7. I'm the meantime I have to admit IM getting old. My son Is telling me how things work in w8 and I am getting used to the new interface by now. But my son telling Mr brings back some memories
What metro is and isn't is in the eye of the beholder, and here it is totally kiddie time trash.
The app store, lol, sorry but you got to be kidding. So the app store keeps you from downloading random exe files off the net. Don't even know what to say that other that seriously bud.
Yes of course everyone who doesn't like w8 is afraid of change, just a natch isn't it. lmao
Don't even go there, been on w8 since it came out.
