Hi- my 1st post.


Just began using 8... was using XP. I use notepad constantly. In XP I had an icon in the bottom task bar. I'd open it up, type some info, save by naming the file, and it would be stored. When I finally managed to find the notepad in 8 I dragged it down to the bottom bar OK but when I save a new file it creates a new shortcut on the desktop... If I name 15 notepads it will create 15 shortcuts on the desktop. I don't want it to do that. I want the files stored in the usual way- without shortcuts to each one.

Make sure when you save the file it's not set to be saved to your desktop. If you want it to be saved to a folder such as My Documents you need to specify that is where to save to. I believe you can do that by using the menu on the left side of the screen when you are saving.
