    can some one guide me in windows eight


    just now installed windows 8 developers preview

    1st disappoint is i couldnt find usual start button
    2.when i press windows logo it shifts to page with diff icon

    how the hell(sorry to use) do i run any applications from it
    for example if i double click the suduko game icon instead of running it give pin unpin uninstall option

    i wanted to connect to remote desktop but i couldnt identify the way for it!!!

    once installed the icons looked really cool and i thought i can double click any icon to launch the application but that isnt happening

    my first thought is why did they remove start button how the hell do i get to my computer or run any application for eg paint or rdp etc

    sorry for my harsh words thats my disappointment towards windows 8

    they say when something is going good dont try to fix it

    hope some one help me here!!!


    regards

    I suggest you use the many work arounds (to the metro interface) listed here in eight forums.

    The start button is there (for now) but things are somewhat different than win 7.

    Have you found and used the workarounds so "metro" looks like win 7? If not I suggest you do so that it will be more familiar for you.

    The developer preview is so that you can learn to use the new OS and it is different

    If it is asking for a live.com id you probably dont have win 8 set up with a local email account.

    What exactly are you trying to do?

    What was your OS before WDP?
