Windows 8...

On edit..we have decided to return this computer and get another with 7 installed. I won't say that 8 is a piece of crap...but it is a big enough challenge to adjust to the new screen that those that already have a full plate will not take kindly to the idea of adding another component to the learning cycle.


One of the great things about Staples...a 14 day bring it back policy.

Sharon needed a new computer for her real estate work. In fact...she has a brand new laptop that she has decided is not for her..I am going to trade my old one to her....I know I know...I am that generous....

There is no point in going off on why Microsoft makes these changes. Like many buinsesses, change is seen as a way to sell more or new or different products to the market place..to people that already have a product..now you have to figure out ways to get more marketshare..or a sell more add-ons. Cars, cameras, stereo's..it's all same same, eh.

So..Sharon's new desktop has Windows 8 installed. And she doesn't like the new display on the desktop and doesn't want to spend the time and energy to learn it. I went looking and have found ways to manage the whole mess. I am going to try this dowload and if it works as advertised....she'll be happy.  



I am going to use this method...






Here is a list of videos that are out there as of today.
