    Where are all the programs?
    there is no windows live mail?
    i see Start
    but when you click on it you get all those huge messged together icons on the desktop
    what if you want it back to the old way?
    I click on Desktop and the "Start" shows you back to all those huge big blocks on the desktop

    Hello Robin,

    The "Start" screen is the Windows 7 Start Menu "Pin to" area now.

    The "Apps" screen is the Windows 7 Start Menu "All Programs" area now.


    The tutorials below can help show more on this if you like.

    thank you
    what a major difference from windows 7

    I am not sure if i like this yet
    two many steps

    there should be a an extra in the taskbar to enable it to "look like Windows 7" like there is in windows 7 to look like XP
    for those who do not like this new desktop or at least want to ease into it

    Been working with it since the DP and found out once you get used to it, it works quite well.

    it is a lot to get used to compared to windows 7
    I believe this is going to be real hard for business uses to swallow
    the home user will find it easier to use though
