Can you access Windows normal screen from a Windows 8 tablet, as I can on my laptop, or are you limited to the touch screen and icons?

 

I would check this myself except that I am a fair way out of town in Brindisi.

 

Of course, not speaking Italian limits my investigation also :wink:  

 

Thanks

If it is running normal Windows 8/8.1 the answer should be "yes".

 

Would help to know exactly which tablet you are referencing.

Hi JohnWho,

I wasn't quite clear about this.  At the time I posted it (October last year)  I had not purchased a tablet running Windows, I was just considering it.  I had my Galaxy Tab 2 and my wife had an iPad2, plus our two Toshiba laptops, and I was interested in getting a Microsoft-based tab also.

 

I have now bought a HP Elitepad 900 64G which was running Windows 8 Pro.  I upgraded this to 8.1Pro as soon as it arrived.  I can flick between Apps and Desktop, but I am having issues with the Desktop that are presently making it unusable.  I put another thread on about this but haven't got any answers yet.

 

Thanks

Hoges

OK, see you in the "other thread".
