    New user: I just want to see all my programs with one view


    Hello everyone!

    I am brand new to 8.1 as of receiving my new dell 7000 series laptop.

    My first question,,didn't receive a satisfactory answer on a Google or YouTube search. Like the windows 7, i would click programs on my start menu, and be able to view all programs on the computer with one look.

    How can i do this in 8.1 os??

    If you just want to be able to view all programs, click the arrow icon in the bottom left corner of the Start Screen.

    If you want to goto the 'all apps' screen every time you click the Start Button, right-click on the Taskbar then go to Properties > Navigation and check 'Show the apps view automatically when I go to Start'.

    That was least intrusive one I could find.
