A) You can use the desktop control panel

B) Since when does avg. user care about Windows update? It is supposed to do its work in the background and only prompt when user interaction is needed (restart, failures)

Oh look!! There it is, in the control panel! Well that was obvious! Why didn't show up under the search as windows update why is it under "additional updates"?

A) It's not that they moved it, but the fact it has to run full screen

B) Sure Windows key + W works. But what about the average user?

Average users only search for settings very rarely if at all. Selecting the "Settings" scope should not be a burden in these rare cases. In Windows 8 the emphasis is on having a faster and less cluttered UI for what they do 99% of the time when searching in Start (i.e. launching apps). Then it's very easy to roll over to other scopes (Settings, Files, or even inside of searchable apps). We also spent a lot of time refining the keyboarding experience.

I got epileptic censures watching that. Thanks. It also looks like the video was sped up to me.

Yes that's the idea that I get from Windows 8. That you need to be stupid or dumb to use it. Why would I need to run apps in fullscreen? (Especially with a "less cluttered UI"). The UI belongs in a phone, maybe tablet, not on the Desktop. Sorry but that's just what I think.

The average user uses Windows quite differently than you.

Let Microsoft take care of them.

The lack of folder support can make the start screen get extremely cluttered if you install a lot of applications. The Metro start screen is also frankly butt ugly. The Microsoft that listened to their users are evidently long gone, they evidently reverted to the old money gouging Microsoft. Because let's face it, that's what it's really about, selling apps.

What? How did you get from what I said to this? You're really reaching here.

This will probably be as popular as a million ? gas bill, but here it comes anyway. I initially joined in with the " OMG where's my start menu " crowd and enjoyed laughing, ignorantly, at everybody else. Then a friend bought be a copy of Win 8 pro on release, which I've now been using for around a month.

I really haven't noticed the lack of a start menu on my desktop. What I have noticed is much snappier performance in 2D and 3D apps, copying files and general day to day usage. My friend initially used classic shell with his copy because he really liked the start menu, but now is running just the same as I am and loves it too, along with the rest of his family.

If you haven't tried it, try it, and if you have tried it, but really insist that it hurts your eyes, lowers your sex appeal or kills your children, you will have to stay on the slower, less secure windows 7.

No need to whine about it though, windows 9 will be along shortly, and they will probably have removed something else you can't live without :laugh:

Regardless, you are spending a lot of time in this and other similiar threads complaining about 8 when you could be " power using " on 7, but I'm sure it's not because you're jelly :rofl: :rolleyes: :woot:
