    Rerun Initial first run Windows 8 Setup / Customization

Odd. I am sure everyone is ahead of me on this, but I have not noticed any reference to it on the forums I subscribe to. I am a great user of Windows explorer, and had a bit of a fight to find my way around the ribbon and navigation, until I stumbled on this facility. 2712
