    You talking about the ones in the upper right corner of apps? StarFerret says they're 'licious! Actually, I like 'em if for no reason than to get out of something I didn't intend to get into.

    Oh, and I just discovered that if I'm on the Metro Interface and slide the mouse down to the bottom of the page, I get my QuickLaunch, Programs toolbars as well as the taskbar! Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
    Yes, those are the ones. Gawd! There ruining Modern/Metro by polluting it with traditional crap! At least they're hidden and I'm not a mouser, so I won't see them much, but just to know they're there makes me nauseous.

    Then look at this! A task Bar on my Start Screen!!! %#*$!!!! And I keep mine to the right. I have been for years! The task Bar over the Charms bar!!! OMG!!...uck...uck...Excuse me....uck...uck....I must needs go throw up!

    Shallow ive seen it sitting on 0kb many many times, stopping it isnt going to help. Just start it, walk away for a few hours. Millions of people are downloading. Sometimes the progress rate doesnt clock or refresh thats all (usually)

    lol at hippsie and wynona

    ill save you hippsie! Reaches for sledge hammer

    Wow! I thought 929GBs was a lot! Thanks for posting your numbers.

    I tried to see what each update was for, but I opened the second and it linked to a page that was moved?!! I'm tired and disappointed, so I gave up. I don't know if I want to look at 8.1 anymore.

    Dont wanna upset anyone but I clicked download 9 min ago, had a smoke, went back in and it was asking to reboot.

    last night it said 10 updates and the update 1 was 1mb, this morning when I started the pc, as I didnt download last night, i refreshed the windows update for the long wait and it now said 998mb, so over night something changed. Anyhows, all finished

    Maybe its because I already had start8 and decor8 loaded, but I dont see any changes except that there is a windows store metro icon on my desktop taskbar.

    thats it, nadda, zero, anticlimax
