Author MyLadyAlexis0958 (4 months)
The thing about Windows 8 is I don't like all those silly apps. When i log
onto my PC I want to just see my original homepage and not all these silly
looking things. From my home page i can decide where i want to go from
there. Those silly apps thingys look stupid and complicated.

I immediately deleted almost all my silly, stupid, preinstalled, demanding
a Microsoft account and agreeing to terms "charms". Not at all charming. I
had to take the computer back to figure out how to turn off the damn thing.
I make a false move with the cursor, and those charming charms come back,
over this video, over anything I do. I would love to permanently turn that
charming feature off.

Windows 8 is awful. I see no practical reason for this change. This
tutorial however, was fantastic. At least I can function now. Do you think
we could create a mutiny and force MS to go back to the windows 7 layout in
the next version?

I have a problem: every single app I install is stored in the OS HDD which
in my case is only 90gb. I have two other HDD completely empty so my
question is how do I change it so the system installs on those two?? I mean
whenever I start installing it does not even ask me which hdd I want to use
and it stores everything on the os hdd and I can't do anything about it.
Can you help me?

I REALLY tried to use Windows 8.1... but, found it to be a really bad
The biggest problem is you can not easily create a dual boot system... in
fact, if your computer doesn't use drivers for 7... you can't create a dual
boot system. And, what about opening in Safe Mode?

Windows went sooo far off base with 8.0... it is pretty much a waste of
effort and time. All MS needed to do was add touch screen to the existing
Windows 7... and leave the other garbage out. Why can't Windows accept
the fact that Google and Apple is the dominate mobile device operation
system... MS just needs to give up trying to make a 3rd class effort at
copying Google and Apple. for goodness sake.

Like others I very much DISLIKE Windows 8. I thought 7 was a downgrade in
user friendliness over the previous version but Windows 8 has far exceeded
my "this sucks" expectations. I've also been using a Macbook Pro laptop for
several years and I find that OS so much friendlier and trouble free
without the constant need for upgrade downloads! And no extra key stroke
compared to a PC laptop. Not sure why the "brain trust" at Microsoft felt
they needed such a huge change from 7 to 8? Maybe those "brilliant minds"
at Microsoft need to stroke each other on the back every time one of them
comes up with something new just for giggles. I say show off at your own
expence! I'm sure average every day users of PC are quite disappointed with
this OS!

Author Fred Wells (7 months)
I am sooo relieved. I thought that they completely took away the desktop,
leaving only the stupid tile interface. Phew!

I simply think that they took all opportunity for us to take control of our
Computer the one we paid for and supposidly belongs to us but it doesn't
seem that way anymore as far as i am concerned Microsoft is improving their
system to take control of our computers and manage a major control

Learning new stuff... my first time around navigating the new Windows 8 was
kind of hard because I wasn't familiar with the UI, I had watched many
tutorials on how to use it since then nd it helped a lot, here's one of the
basics nd what you need to start off... Enjoy.

Author kie7077 (3 months)
To close an app, move your mouse to some unmarked part of the screen, WAIT,
drag all the way across the screen, let go.

What the f**k!!!!!!! Could this be any more tortuous and non-intuitive.
