Three tips to make Windows 8 less annoying

From the Ask Leo website:


Windows 8 introduced a few new ways to do things and hid some of the old and familiar ones. I'll show you three things that will make living with Windows 8 easier without installing anything at all.

Windows 8 gets a bad rap.

There is a lot to that of course.

I was helping a friend learn how to use the computer.  This was the first she has ever had, a laptop with Windows8.   And yeah I don't blame people for gripping about the desktop and no Start button. LOL  

However, her son had already created a custom start page for her which was great but that leads to another gripe people have, there is no way to make that created desktop load by default you have to access it from the default desktop.  

I think that will be addressed shortly in the upcoming Window 8.1.  Supposedly they are cleaning up and adding and making it once again a glorious OS!!!  LOL  Matter of fact you can try it out now:

Weekend Project! Install the Windows 8.1 preview  

Windows 8.1 is a do-over, a bid to simplify and personalize an operating system that, quite frankly, turned off a lot of people. If you own Windows 8 and dislike it, we encourage you to follow along and consider giving Windows 8.1 a try. Not only does it have features designed to make Windows 8.1 a friendlier experience, but it has tons—yes, tons—of new features.
