    So, I installed 8.1.... what a freakin pain. By the time I got it installed, I was already steamed. (seriously, 5 minutes alone in a room with some of these poindexters .....)

    Failed twice... "setting up a few more things 3%...)
    What more things...??? How about a freaking clue....(a lot to ask from the clueless shits at ms central, perhaps).

    Ended up uninstalling my ESET, and had to unplug my external hd.

    And then... using it.... I tried, I really did, tho not for long....sorry, but tifkam just holds nothing usable for me... I hate it. Perhaps if the install process had not been such a freakin' nightmare, I may have been more inclined to force myself to try harder to like it.

Ok I am trying to get used to Metro Mail. But to me, it seems that the reading pane is more like a preview pane. I have to scroll to see all the text and I don't think I'll ever get used to that. Is there a 'switch?' or something I am missing that would close the Account Column and the...
