    Or you could get an os you like, instead of trying to force yourself to do MS bidding.

    The situation is the same. They configured email, they found it disturbing that clicking the icon took you right into their email. Anybody who sat down at their PC had access automagically.
    That's what the Mail app is designed to do.... Just like every other email app on ios, android, Windows Phone, and Windows....

    And to prevent unauthorized people from accessing that, you password protect it and lock it if you're away. Put it to sleep and resume it, no one other than that one person can log into it as it's password protected.
    Hence the reason that people have such compromised privacy. They lose their phone or computer and people have everything they have.

    ^ That's one of the things that I truly appreicate about the Google Chromebook. If I were to misplace it, I haven't lost a single bit of information. There is nothing on the device.
    Hence, the reason why there are several password options as well as two account options as well as several other options to use certain software certain ways.

    LOL, Shawn.

    You know I find the whole thing utterly hilarious. I can't resist joining in the irony.

    The misguided few who want everyone to bend to the will of a corporation and force themselves to adapt to a technology - instead of the other way around.

    The public awareness/hit and run smear ( depending on your point of view ) being conducted by MS against Google.

    That is just the tip of the iceberg.

    It reminds a little of Yes Prime Minister - but you couldn't write this stuff.

    I am just a simple normal girl who hardly tries to figure out how this shitty Windows 8 is working... I cant beleive I bought this crap!

    I hope somebody wants to help, since Windows charges 500 kr to help.

    My question is: When I go on the start page, there is an app called Mail (outloook), How can manage to log out of it, so nobody who walks by my laptop can get acces to my mail. Right now its easy to acces since its open, and there is no way to log out of it.

    Thats just 1 issue.. I have headeachs using Windows 8
    Hi there
    People will sympathize with your sentiment - but saying it's a piece of Dog Poo on a Windows 8 Forum and then asking for help isn't likely to get you the best people to help you out.

    There ARE problems with W8 and for some people trying to use / navigate it is a nightmare - but I would suggest you should title the post slightly differently.

    If you logged on to a Harley Bikers Forum, complained how BAD you thought Harley's were and then ask for help I'm quite sure what the response would be.

    Cheers
