For 4 hours or more I have been trying to discover how to install Office for a friend in her computer using a legal copy of the cd for Office. I have inserted the cd correctly. Nothing whatsoever happens, no start, no error message even, absolutely nothing. I cannot find any icon for a cd-player or media-player on Windows 8, nor any list of programs. All I can access are a load of "apps" which i thought only applied to things you downloaded to a smartphone. Is that where the media-player is hidden on Windows 8? If it is not called cd-player or media-player what is it disguised as? There is no useful information on the internet on how to find the information necessary to experience Windows 8 as user-friendly. Am I wrong? Should I be expected to google all day to find the missing, necessary instructions? I would prefer to be able to find it a great system and I hope some kind person will tell a total dummy like me how and where to find the name Windows 8 has chosen for what gets the cd started so that I can appreciate the information there is on Windows 8. Thank you for helping.
