Desktop background on Start In Windows 8.0, when I flip to the Start screen from the desktop, it is a dramatic visual "switch" to another, completely different screen.
When in the Start Screen, the button goes invisible, but bringing your cursor down to the lower left hand corner will bring it into focus with a rollover, in which you http://www.facebook.com/xxcorpxx Chris Woodward Dinosaur = extinction Adapt Sent from my Nokia Lumia 920 http://www.facebook.com/ronald.stepp Ronald Stepp Wow.. What a wonderful corporate world view. The classic multi-step application launcher is that we have seen in windows 7 and earlier versions of Microsoft windows is still missing.

Chris And because of MS's foolishness, they are also headed for the ditch. We are very open about our vision for the future, and the path we choose to get there.
User's that could tout proficiency in Office on their resume, or to solve a task for the boss, looked like newbies when asked to do it on an Office 2007 system. For example, you can fully turn off the Charms bar by mousing into the upper right hand corner -- a quirk I find myself running into when using desktop apps regularly. I could spend a few hours grouping up the tiles I suppose or zoom out to all apps, but that is a far worse wreck than a simple vertical list. https://techcrunch.com/2013/06/26/windows-8-1s-start-button-isnt-a-start-button/ Debaditya Chatterjee i would like to point out that visual appeal is a matter of opinion and varies from person-to-person.
I like the idea of the Metro start screen, all apps screen, and desktop sharing one background. http://www.facebook.com/people/Jim-Phong/100001178973449 Jim Phong Metro/ModernUI it's a childish lazy design unusable unproductive interface. Microsoft has brought back the Start button in Windows 8.1 Preview, but instead of launching the old and popular Start Menu, it actually gets users to the new Start screen. Until they can shrink a tablet down to a size that I can fit in my front pocket (foldable tablets maybe?), they can forget about me ever buying one.
Doh!!!! http://betanews.com/2013/06/26/new-windows-8-1-start-button-boot-to-desktop-already-in-the-wild/ Hmmm. Every video review I watch say it makes 8 tolerable. IMO the button is good (I use the Windows Logo key, but that doesn't work if using a touch screen) but could have been named "[All] Programs." Maybe in Windows 8.2
You can customize the order, size, grouping and location of your Tiles. http://www.facebook.com/ronald.stepp Ronald Stepp So they're going against the general trend of slow sales for this version? If it does not work you may have some strange configuration or a defective device. Bill Cardiff "It's about choice" - Microsoft has taken that away - what choice is there??
But if you do want to boot to the desktop that can be achieved with a single setting or Group Policy. 3 years ago Reply Joao Sousa Botto Armandt Burger, you As you can see in the screenshot above, StartIsBack even detects if your system needs to restart to apply some patches; it really is just like the Windows 7 Start menu. But they could have done both the metro and the start button. They're thinking "the users will use our new OS and learn to love it, what other choice do they have?" The whole design is to expand the windows phone and tablet
For my customer it’s a requirement for software packaging in a migration project. Win8 with the Modern UI aside is a much improved Win7 and if not having a classic start menu pains you so much just add a new toolbar with "C:ProgramDataMicrosoftWindowsStart MenuPrograms" windows 8 and 8.1 are FAR from user friendly.
The animation of the Start button switching between the desktop and Start Screen is clearly shown too with the new support for desktop wallpapers on the Start Screen. but windows 7 really is the best till date, and probably will be for another 4-5 years. & no, win7 is not better, it's just more progressive. I love the idea, but cant seem to get them to work. 3 years ago Reply Joao Sousa Botto John Clayton, are you saying that when you press Win+X and choose All I've done since I bought a desktop with Windows 8 is google how to create shortcuts and download patches.
But I do like the Metro background much better. After that it won't connect automatically anymore. Because I, for one, don't miss the start button at all. There are many options that have additional functionality, so I would recommend that you try a few and choose the one that suits you best 3 years ago Reply viraj how
After all, you can easily make the Start screen do everything the Start Menu did. for real? The more things change (The shitty Metro UI crap), the more things stay the same (Microsoft fanbase bringing back the start button themselves). No one rarely used the start button on any Windows system since it appeared.
Hell, none of my monitors are touch screen, so this tablet manager as a desktop makes absolutely no sense. http://twitter.com/Sonic_98 BHZ And has that ever stopped anyone from getting any OS out there from any software maker out there? I expect from manufacturers to embed or deliver useful things. You have to relearn where that stuff was.
Keep in mind that making character assassinations as your opening statement just minimizes the worth of anything else you say. The mac book.
