Is that normal behaviour?Bill
I did get upset with people
the Microsoft Mojave project.
The people here that have issues with Windows 8 have used it for a whole year and know the system very well. I myself made at least 10 tutorials about Windows 8 - but I still don't like it.
No need, I'm simply waiting to see what you do when Microsoft brings back the start menu and makes the MPI optional.
I don't understand why anyone would use the mouse to draw, just because it's how people say to use a PC DOES NOT EVEN equate to a proper experience. You don't take a mouse and physically draw on a piece of paper do you? No.
Also, I get pissy at the end of the day after drawing in AutoCAD as it's just too tedious of a task for me to do that I just become mildly rabid.
Your "many, many people" looks to me to be a minority according to our forum polls. I suggest you look them up.I don't care what Microsoft uses as an argument for the MPI, many, many, people don't like it and want what they had with Windows 7. Yes, I'm one that uses the taskbar for my most frequent programs (not apps, as I don't have any apps with Windows 7), but I also have some programs on the desktop and also use the start button for less used programs.
Geez, not another analogy. Is this all you people come up with is analogies? Good grief! This is a menu on a dining table (updating in real time) not a kitchen. e.g. Instead of "$ Market Price" after Lobster, it gives the current price so as to decide whether to order or not.Relate this to say a kitchen. You have the things that you use all the time readily at hand (the taskbar) such as knives, forks, spoons, cups and plates etc. The things that you use less often are stored away in easily accessible cupboards (desktop) such as deep fryers, larger pots and pans etc. And the things that you use less frequently again, are stored away much deeper in cupboards and lower draws (the start button) such as baking trays etc. It all, of course, depends on your cooking/eating preferences.
What Microsoft has done is create a single wall with nooks that contain all of your kitchen implements, everything is visible at the same time and the best that you can do is shift things amongst the nooks. You no longer have cupboards, shelves, draws, sliding draws, hooks etc. It's all flat. You no longer have everything readily at hand, but must move away from the workspace to access your cooking implements. Your kitchen now controls you, not the other way around.
No, Ray. I like all my "stuff" visible the way I arrange it on the "wall" menu. Not the way MS wanted it in the old menu. I see number of & from whom with live email tile, weather stats in places I choose, news headlines from sources I choose, scrolling pictures of people I care for, stock market info, etc. It's like this:
I left you a note on my note tile, Ray.
I have to say this, Windows 7 was actually the first REALLY touch centric OS. Go back to vista, and then use 7. What do you notice? Larger window control buttons, thicker border padding, larger Taskbar conveniently the size of the average tip of a human finger. If you use Windows 7, you're using a touch centric, touch optimize operating system. That's that.
And actually, false, if you have a new Windows 8 laptop PC that doesn't have touchscreen, you STILL have touch gesturing available to use with the touchpads on them. The very same swiping actions on a touchscreen are applicable to the touchpads, it's then just point and click. You can do that with Windows 8, right? Or do you have to buy a touch monitor to tap something open? I'm confused.
