    You could disable a lot of things in Vista to make it run better, the trouble is the average person has no idea on how to do this so they just sit around and complain how slow Vista was.

    is not about me getting a job in MS is about they reading what we are telling them what we want to see from them. a incomplete job should not me put on the market just because is new. will they get it right in the next 2 expansion I will think so. but won't you will like to see a fully complete OS from MS? I will love to. now I'm not talking about people being able to run their old games in their pc but it would be lovely that you could do that. and I will not even start on the plug and play conversation of hard wears because that what makes a pc a pc. but I'm talking about features that we used to have that we no longer have. is like a having windows 7 with copy and paste and windows 8 not having it. the way I see it. you keep providing it or you improve it.

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.
    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.

    thank you, but the point is that we used to have a easier way to it. why not keep it or improve it. the whole concept of windows 8 is for it to be easier.

    I've always found CTRL-A easier. Back in the day with the wired mouses, you always had to take the mouse ball out and clean the dust/dirt off of the inside, I finally got tired of it and began using keyboard hot keys and haven't looked back. Sort of like CTRL-V, I've always found that much quicker to paste while typing than having to right click and then hit paste.

    If you were assigned to write a 1 page book report and started running out of room. So you started writing really tiny small to fit everything you need to say on 1 page. If the teacher puts her glasses on and reads it completely, she gives you an A+. Would it be fair of her to give you a C- just because she was too lazy to look around for her glasses? Or a magnifying glass when she couldn't find her glasses.

    8 has issues as any other OS does also.
    Some of the changes MS made were for speed & stability. To achieve that, it may have been necessary to remove functions.

    So the idea is to recycle old stuff ? Not very good for the economy, of course Green Peace will think differently.
