    It just seems easier to me to press a key and select something listed. (from the apps area)
    Websites, metro apps, games, office and photo programs can all be listed with 1 hot key.

    And, from my perspective, large quantities of tiles do not agree with my need for neatness.

    I prefer everything on Start now because of a glitch this one time on the CP of Window 8 in a To Go drive. I like it that way, it is a literal Start launcher for EVERYTHING. The side scrolling doesn't bother me in the slightest, I have a Touch Mouse and currently playing with a touch AIO PC with my hard drive in it. It's splendid.

    I want to try and figure out how to get the picture in-line with the tiles.See how it sits lower on the screen,so it just looks uneven.

    I usually change my Start Screen once a week to save me from getting bored with it.
