    Hi there
    Think you misunderstood my post.

    No prob switching into the traditional desktop -- that wasn't what my post was saying.

    You can't as yet customize the Metro UI -- so you have to first do all sorts of shenanigans to get "Open File Location" in order to set a desktop short cut --and it still doesn't solve the HIDEOUS looking infinitely spreading Left===> Right Tile system .

    Cheers

    Actually, Jimbo, I've managed to get two more tiles working, and I'm starting to see the advantages of the Metro system. Am I correct in saying that some of them cannot be turned on in the Preview edition?

    Hi there
    I'm not trying to avoid the Metro UI -- I just want it to function PROPERLY and allow a decent bit of User customisation -- If this COULD work properly I actually would prefer this to the traditional Start menu on the desktop.

    Cheers
