    You can turn off tabbed browsing and hide the tab bar by going into tools-->options-->tabs.

    Then Apply, OK and in the future your system should boot without asking for the password.

    In this little video you can see how it works. That was the old CP version in Virtual Box.

    Yes you can!
    StartIsBack - real start menu in Windows 8

    WOW thanks for the encouragement on this issues.
    Now show me the steps if you will please..
    I can follow your directions .. I may have to ask a few questions along.
    You have made me very happy..
    I will eventually ( probably go back after I know W8 functions ).
    I do want to learn how things work, but I first need to get this running and working as I can in the Classic look.

    Hmm, no idea for Firefox. I can do it in Opera with an Opera theme though.

    Good morning everybody, just getting my first sip of coffee yawn... Thanks for the cap LADYPINKtomato1 a picture says a thousand words. Yes you can put any type of theme in the borders just go to mozilla https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/themes/ when browsing keep an eye on the FF orb some are for Thiunderbird. If you see blue then go back one page to get back to FF. If you hover your mouse over a theme it will show in the browser border as an example pretty kweel feature. Will be home all day today to watch the Nascar race so I can answer any questions to the best of my ability.

    Yes SiB is really a life saver for W8 non touch desktop, r-clicking the orb will get you to property's and you can configure it the way you want. It's pretty straight forward I have mine boot straight to desktop and I also killed the "charms bar" in the process. Metro isn't ready for the PC desktop imo until they can get seamless integration with desktop apps. For now all associations are set to desktop and I never see metro ever...

    I don't know of any other program, but 8 has Snipping Tool. Start Screen -> type "Snipping Tool" -> tap/click/enter to open. Or while it's seen in search you may right click for pin to taskbar or to Start. I put it on my taskbar since that's where I snip a lot. Of course it's a desktop program.

    Any screen you're on you can push Windows key / Print Screen key for full Screenshot. It will create a folder in My Pictures automatically.

    Hope that helps.
