I wonder if Shawn is going to put the shortcut links back in the Tutorial Index as I see there are none?

Slartybart, yes sorry I digressed. I've clarified that post as applying to 8/8.1. Sorry I just re-read your post and realised I hadn't answered it.

My apologies.

Windows Mail in Windows 8.1

I bought a new ThinkPad with Windows 8 and downloaded the update to 8.1. For Windows Mail which I have used for years in Windows 7 on various computers using the instructions detailed in this wonderful forum. For 8.1 it was easier than ever. I just copied the Windows Mail files from my Windows 7 laptop onto a stick and then after renaming the Windows Mail folder in Win 8.1 to Windows Mail. Old, I dragged the files off the stick into a folder I named Windows Mail. Easiest thing I ever did.

However and I know this is a different topic, I hate Windows 8.1 so much, even after practicing with it on my old computer using a dual boot configuration for several months, that I reformatted my new drive and put Windows 7 on. Windows 8 is the worst, stupidest, most arrogant thing MS has ever done and I think they have cut their own throats by trying to ram it down our throats while trying to imitate Apple’s ease of use. Apple is brilliant and Metro is garbage. The most unintuitive garbage-ware I have ever seen. I thought Vista was bad but this thing is a nightmare of frustration. It might as well be in Chinese or some alien language it’s just sooo bad. I cannot imagine what those idiots were thinking except that “Oh we must try to have our own iOS and make it work the same on everything from a desktop to a toaster. Idiots!!

It's really designed for touch-screen tablets more than a desktop but you can make Windows 8 look almost exactly like 7 with a few tweaks. With Stardock's Start8 for example you can bring back the old Start button and Start Menu and work from your desktop all the time.

Thanks Ex-Brit,


Even with the start menu I was frustrsated.. As you know, XP was such a stable workhorse and then Vista really threw me off with crazy things like a backup program that would not restore and caused me to lose everything. Win 7 should have been a service pack for Vista and indeed that's what it really amounted too. But we had to pay for it which was criminal. I found 7 to be the perfect stable workhorse replacement for XP. But alas, once again they have to mess with a good thing
