    Quick question!


    Hello
    I have just bought a new laptop with windows 8 and actually quite like the tile setup!
    Some programs I need to use are on the desktop and I regularly need to switch between desktop and start screen views. All I want to do is have an on screen 'windows button' that will take me from the desktop back to the start screen with a click of the mouse, as opposed to having to physically push the keyboard button.
    I know this is ultimately lazy, but surely it should be simple and sometimes a mouse click is just so much easier than pushing the button!
    Thanks everyone
    Mark

    Hello Mark, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    You could use step 2 or step 3 in the tutorial to also quickly open the Start screen from the desktop. Step 2 is for a Start button.

    If you like, you could also use a Start screen shortcut I created that could be pinned or used where you like in addition to the above.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn
