    How do you find "All Programs" in Win 8? I am stuck at the desktop.

    Click image for larger version
    Open the Start Menu and right click in any open space. You then may click on the circle in the corner that reads all apps.
    Hope it helps!

    In desktop mode you can't - welcome to Windows8.

    A workaround would be installing one of the many "Start Menu" 3rd party apps like Start8

    You could always just press Win+Q to bring up the search charm - it defaults to "Apps", which shows the applications (desktop or otherwise) installed on the machine.
