I just purchased a new hp portable with windows 8. I have used every version of windows since 95 except for Vista and windows7.  My personal favorite is XP Pro since my system is used 90% for business use and xp is so easy to compartment and navigate.  I know that win8 has be confused but I will succeed.  My first desire is to disable the live tile desktop and use the conventional desktop only.  Is there a way and does this hurt the system

I use this from our Tutorials Section.

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/start-menu-in-windows-8-with-classic-shell/

 

Windows 8 no longer includes the traditional Start Menu that Windows users have become associated with using..........With this in mind, a free program called Classic Shell has been updated to support the ability to add a Start Menu to Windows 8.

 

 

Good Luck

  1. Thanks so very much.  This small addition solved the majoriy of my navigation problems so that I can avoid all of the cute parts of win8.  I have no interest or desire to use a computer as a music box, television, or any other fun and games.  I simply use it for customer info, databases, online access for information to make sufficient income to take care of my family.  Thanks again. I was not aware of this website or you very knowledgeable people regarding these subjects.  I am not trained enough or knowledgeable to offer my experience to your group but if ever I see something that I actually am experienced with I will respond.
