I Hate Windows 8!
Then you still have your normal desktop with the smaller icons that we are all accustomed to from Windows 7 and before. Ah, all the comforts of home! You don't have to scroll to the side to see things, you are not blinded by the bright colors. Much more of a "Table of Contents" approach!
When I'm working on my desktop, I'm fine. I have "pinned" my favorite programs to the bottom so I can toggle between my email and my word documents. But it never fails -- just when I'm hitting my stride with transferring data from emails to documents, I accidentally hit one of the charms and the screen switches to the big old START screen again.
Extra steps, extra strokes. Return to desktop, return to email.... I KNOW I'm using far more strokes with this blasted program than with Windows 7.
As it turns out, my daughter was quick to point out that my left click button is not working properly. I have had this laptop for under two weeks so guess where I'm going tomorrow? I will see if they will allow me to trade it in for a laptop with good old Windows 7 while I'm at it. Now that would be a true lucky charm!
