    Missing Programs


    Just installed Windows 8 preview this weekend. I like it so far. But i am wondering where to find a listing of programs i have installed on my system. I used to goto start then programs using win 7 and be able to scroll down thru what i have installed to run. I can't find that option on win 8

    southtownthingy, welcome to the forums


    First hover your mouse on start button and select 'search'



    then click Apps


    And here you go, there is the list


    you can also pin programs from this list to the start menu

    Hope it helps, you can search for unpinned programs directly from your start menu too.
