    Accessories Missing?


    I am running Win8 with Start8 and am trying to find the Win8 equivalent of Win7's Accessories so that I can show it in Start8's All Programs. Will someone point me to it please. I really need/want to get to Notepad, Paint and Wordpad among other things quickly from the desktop.

    Thank you.

    In Fart8, it shows up as "Windows Accessories" down near the bottom. There should be 2 of em, the 2nd one contains the Character Map program.
