    Hi everyone
    Thank goodness we can get back to the point again

    Everyone makes mistakes but I can honestly say I've never met one as the person mentioned often in this thread who refuses EVEN TO LOOK at the evidence when presented.

    If he doesn't mend his way I can't say that he will find it any easier out there on 'The Street either.

    enjoy the rest of the day everyone.

    Cheers

    John, I did not mean to get him banned. But at times he forwarded theories that were not well founded. I just did not think that this would help others that may read the threads. So I was trying to steer against his 'theories'.

    There were, however, occasions where his contributions were correct and valuable. I guess he was just a little wild.

    And I suppose it's time for an update:

    I'm back on Windows 7, but I haven't gotten around to deleting the windows 8 partitions (I took off the drive letters so they're invisible, and I have plenty of space on my HDD).

    From my experience it is mostly fine, but in it's current literation I found it kind of frustrating:

    1. I liked to keep the metro screen tidy by unpinning all desktop applications. Problem is, whenever I need to use an application (that I don't use enough to pint to the taskbar), I have to Go to the home screen, right click, click on "all apps", then scroll to the application. That I feel is a bit too many awkward steps.

    2. The Metro applications are not really finished. I have yet to figure out how to easily navigate the Music app, and once IE10 is no longer the default IE10Metro disappears, never to be found again. Once Google finally pushes out Chrome metro this should be fixed.

    There may be a few other things, but that's all I can remember.

    ad 1) Why don't you put the applications that you use less frequently into a toolbar. Then they are hidden but readily available at any time. This tutorial works in Win8 too: Toolbars - How to Use in Windows 7 and Vista - Windows 7 Forums

    Hi there
    any chance of turning this video tutorial into a more "Classic" kind using say powerpoint and written instructions.

    I'm afraid that I can't really learn stuff easily from Video tutorials (I'm sure I'm not alone on this either).

    Youtube is great for some things but as a teaching medium -- I'm not so sure.

    The toolbar idea is fine anyway -- good idea for those who haven't used these.

    Cheers

    Totally agree! Youtube tutorials are TERRIBLE. It's virtually impossible to scan for the one important detail you're having problems with, and they aren't really that clear.

    I have made many tutorials and class materials in PowerPoint and as .docx/.pdf. But that is a LOT more work and not necessarily any clearer. A commented PowerPoint show is a good alternative. But the only site for uploading I know is AuthorStream and they often make a mess of your input.

    For the YouTube/Vimeo tutorials that I have posted I suggest that you download them. That will allow you to run them at your pace and repeat as often as required.

    Hi there
    wasn't having "a go at you" and really DO appreciate your work, time and effort into doing these.
    .
    All I was saying that in general I find it harder to work with Video rather than "conventional material" but that's probably because I'M getting too old for a lot of "the new fangled stuff".

    Cheers

    Hi Jimbo, I did not take it personal. I just wanted to explain that the alternatives are a lot more work. I realize that videos are sometimes hard to follow when it comes to specific settings. Maybe it maks sense to add some text and pictures summarizing the most important points/settings. I'll try that next time.

    Here is one of the most elaborate tutorials/classes I have ever produced. But that was a lot of work. If you download the folder, you will see. https://skydrive.live.com/?cid=475a0...CA6D4035%21421
