I must be missing something - can you give me a clue on how to begin?

What I have is a mess of Office icons. I would like to create an Office folder and over all those icons into that folder. Click on the folder to display the Office programs.

Then I'll do the same for my other apps.

Windows 7 64 bit
 
 

Enough! I've struggled with it ever since it first came out and still don't like it. I sincerely hope that the final version will come with a "disposable" metro interface so we can use the Start menu on desktops. Keep metro by all means for tablet/phone usage, that I can understand.

If MS release Win 8 as an upgrade from Win 7 for about 20 - 30 I might consider it. But if it is released, as Win 7 was, for some 70 then it will have no place in my remaining years.

I reformatted the partition and reset boot using EasyBCD. Now happy

This is one of the WORST desktop interfaces I have encountered - and I thought some Linux distros I tried were bad! Win 8 make those Linux distros look like the best thing since sliced bread!

I think I'll stick with Win 7 when I need Windows and my several flavors of Linux for my everyday computer needs.

Does anyone have this installed on a tablet or touchscreen yet?

I think it is a completely different experience running on a machine it is obviously designed for.

Like putting the top down on a convertible instead of a hardtop.

I haven't seen anyone install it on an HP TouchPad and I'm not willing to chance turning mine into a brick. If you have seen it done, point me in the direction (running WebOS).

Why not? It was made for touchscreens. I'll bet it's a perfect fit.

64bit Windows 7 Home Premium
 
 

Hello everyone, I guess I will now register my dislike for Windows 8, as so many others have. Tried it for a while in VirtualBox. It was an easy install. I just do not care for the user interface. Maybe with a touchscreen my experience would have been different.

Let me just say that I hope Microsoft supports Windows 7 for a long time, 'cause I surely will not buy Windows 8 . JMO

Best regards, Frank
