So, you're double clicking into various folders and icons, yet are bothered by a *single* click into the desktop?
Hmm let's see here. Click desktop and have the ability to have around 100 desktop icons (note I said ability, I do not actually have 100s of desktop icons) without scrolling, or stay in the Start Screen and do the grouping thing and have to scroll when there are more than 16 tiles. I made four groups in the Start Screen, and I already need to scroll. So I said forget it and remained doing what I have for years.
It is actually faster for me to double click a folder "Microsoft Office" and open up Word than it is to scroll through a sea of tiles to find it (needle in a haystack type of thing).
Yes I am bothered with having to click the Desktop tile. Because I have to do it.....every.....single.....time. As I said, I switch between OS X and Windows quite often. So having to click it 3-6 times a day (when I only am able to use my computer for 6 hours) is very very very irritating.
In Windows 7, how did you reach that MSOffice shortcuts folder once you had other programs running say browser, media player etc. which covered that portion of your desktop? Your habit is the least efficient method of accessing program shortcuts. You might want to re-think them.
Ah typical response. Windows 8 is the god of all operating systems. "You are using it wrong" or "your methods are wrong". Yep, we just ignore the issues and tell our customers/clients "Change the way you use your computer". You would get fired for doing that.
Hmm lets see here. Minimize the application that is blocking the desktop icon I need, double click, open Word. OR. Windows key, have my full monitor filled up, scroll scroll scroll until you find Word in your sea of icons, then click it.
Again, what does it damn matter to you what I am doing? All I am asking for is a simple check box to boot into desktop. Yet, even though I prefer Windows 8, I am still being attacked about my methods or procedures.
