I am an old, retired Federal law enforcement officer, now doing PI work. I need a computer for work, word processing, internet searches, writing my second book,etc. I am no longer fascinated by shiny colors and bright lights. I don't twitter or utube. I would like all my software to appear on my desktop, so I don't have to wander around all the pretty tiles looking for what I want. Is there a simple way to make 8 look like a work computer. I jumped form XP to this, and I hate it! Help.
