Getting used to a new OS

    I'm on my phone now but I could have sworn that I right clicked anywhere and the tabs bar opens. I'll try it again when I get home.

    By immersive you mean Modern (Metro) app IE? Just wondering where you got the term immersive. Technically that means submerged in a liquid. Not cool to put a screen in a liquid.

    Speaking of immersion, the bowling alley in town had an old iron bridge close by. Guys would throw there bowling balls over into the river when bowling a bad series or at the end of the season when they knew they were getting a new one. They scooped up a couple hundred balls when they replaced the bridge. LOL!

    Yeah, if you right click on a picture or video, it will bring up the context menu. Right clicking elsewhere will work.
    I get immsersive as it's the term found within the Windows system directory. Going into that folder on the C drive will show your a folder called ImmsersiveControlPanel. It probably wouldn't be too good to have liquid on a screen, but I think one would feel immsered by the immersiveness of immersive metro apps.

    That made laugh at the sight of seeing a bunch of guys chucking bowling balls into a river!

    Ok. I see said the blind carpenter as he picked up his saw and went. That's ok. My kids think my jokes are corny too.

    I think more than one on this forum feel immsered by the immersiveness of immersive metro apps! LOL! Good one, Cokie!

    Aside from metro UI. For the desktop, MS has made an improvement for the wallpaper setting in which if we want tons of pictures in various folder to be set as wallpaper we just need to include them into pictures library. In Win 7, for setting with various folders (not single folder) we need to copy them all to Windows folder under web folder.
