    Microsoft tends to leave those things to third parties. Even MacOS tends to disable things Spaces by default. It's just too confusing for most people.

    There are, of course, third party tools like:

    ThinkInBytes | Innovative software for Windows 8, Windows 7 and Windows Vista | CubeDesktop NXT, DeskCollage, DeskMotive, DeskPose

    Virtual Desktop Software for Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8 - DeskSpace | Otaku Software

    etc..

I just think we deserve a full product for once not a x-pack. Windows 9 no expansion package that's the goal Microsoft should be setting up for them self's.
    I suppose you could get a job with them and show them how to build an OS that will satisfy hundreds of millions of users on all kinds of machines and configurations. Do you realise there are people still complaining because they can't run old DOS games.

    There are probably more configurations than people.

    The problem for me is that MS forgot his Windows roots. Put the Metro thing in a window and it fix all the problem. The live tiles is great, but we have only the option of tiles and full screen. Just imagine if we can open 4 or 6 metro apps in a second monitor and work on office in the first one. That will be so much fun.

    we have no warranty that MS will let them continue like this, remember what happen in the developer preview with the registry hack to bring the start menu.

    where is Blue, we are talking seriously now

    I don't think they forgot their roots, they had to build an OS that would adapt to all kinds of machines, otherwise there would have been an even bigger outcry.

    I agree but why not give more option for the desktop ?

    I'm not a software engineer but I'd say that in this first iteration they had to keep things simple so that it would run on low power machines.

    You can still use CTRL-A to select all. I'm not sure if there is any other way or not, so hopefully someone else wil chime in here.

    With Windows 7 and others before, we can disable some visual effects in the performance option, and make a slower PC more responsive. They have an army of programmers, I can't believe something was not be possible if they really want.

    there is the problem, how I explain this to my dad ? he is 80 years old. Microsoft make us use to menu not shortcut, this bring us back in the DOS time. And I have a question here, how the hell you do it on a Phone or a tablet without keyboard ?
