    Those annoying black curtains jumping in from left and right


    Quite often when you move to the right theres the black curtain contain 4 or so icons, and the same to the left with previous pages.
    WHY ?
    Theres been precious little that has impressed me about Windows 8 so far. Nothing that I can think of actually. But this has me in a rage. Anyway to switch it off ? People are supposed to LOVE the metro look. Not me* - and that is a colossal understatment.
    *I actually know 4 people who are running this "preview" - 3 hate it, and the other says he thinks it's "OK"

    That's the characteristic of Windows 8, so don't bother it.

    That is the Fairy Wand - it is just popping out to say Hello.

    It is quite weird - but there you go - lump it or leave it.

    Hi,

    I'd call it a nuisance. Unfortunarely it'll take at least one other magic wand to make it go away or maybe, who knows, a cell phone?.

    Cheers,
    I'd call it nuisance too
    But what has it to do with a mobile phone ? (And why is a Belgian calling it a "cell phone" ? Thought all europe calls them mobiles Like we Brits ?)

    To all those that have such a problem with Windows 8, send MS your feedback and simply dont use it. Stick with Windows 7 then. Its that simple.

    Hi,

    Don't tell me you haven't noticed how the new interface mimicks that of those mobile phones and tablets?

    Here we call those phones GSMs, in Germany it's call a Handy and in France it becomes "un mobile"....Et voila.

    Ciao,

    Stick with Windows 7 ? Thats what I'm going to do.
    Do I detect a "no criticism allowed of new product" here ?
    The tone seems a teensy bit petulant, if you don't mind me saying

    Nope, haven't noticed.
    Haven't been carried away with mobilemania.
    Tend to use a phone as an ...er...phone.
