    Not understanding something here. Do you mean you thought she had trash icons on the desktop and you removed them?

    and the green lock screen
    Hmm. The 8.1 on her lappy came with a green lock screen? That’s odd. Must be an OEM thing I would guess?

    I have now set it to boot directly to the Desktop and that suits her fine.
    I can see where users who have a difficult time learning the new system would be better off that way. That Start Screen and Store apps were really tough to learn!

    I however will continue running Win 7 as long as I have a hole in my derrière.
    LOL! Strange you say that. I know some people that talk through that end most of the time.

    Again, welcome to 8F.

    Look at it this way Gypsie, I'm a firm believer that an OS should be an OS and not some kind of Cellphone emulation.

    If you want to have an icon driven phone then there are loads to chose from and it is my firm belief that MS has screwed up yet again with the layout of Windows 8, this is nothing new for them as they have done it several times before.

    When I tried the Win 8 RC way back it must have took me 10 minutes trying to find out how to shut it down, this is not what people want.

    Her machine is an OEM HP model that had just Win 8 on it originally which I then upgraded to 8.1 with out any trouble and I have now got everything the way I want it to be, an issue that should have never happened in the first place.

    This is the Lock Screen that you should be aware of.

    Please, Wolfeymole, it's HippsieGypsie or HG for short. Like I stated earlier, this thread is dedicated to welcoming new members. I'd like to respond, but feel it's not proper. If you would like to carry out a conversation further you or I can start a thread in the Chillout Room. Please let me know here or via a PM or VM.

    Perhaps we got off on the wrong foot so to speak HG, I apologise for any wrong doing on my part.

    Right, back to welcoming new members.

    No need to apologize, Wolfeymole. Really no harm done. I'd like to think we both have big shoulders.
