    Yeah, I can't organize my icons where I want them to appear in the columns.

Also it would help so be able to turn the computer off instead of going thru like 5 different things before I find the power off icon. lol Im kinda old school and like the simpler things and not all this fancy stuff.

    Here's mine on a Sony VAIO running W8 Release Preview. Using the "Futuristic Fractals" theme from W7 -- works fine on W8 too.

    Cheers
