Well, welcome to the Bleeping Computer forums! I'm sure you'll be able to find somebody to help you.

That's the best read/chuckle I have had in ages !!
There is a program called Classic Shell that may help you with the start button thing....and make the whole thing more recognizable.
Welcome to BC. Stay awhile.
fed up with Windows antics...??
LINUX IS THE ANSWER
I USE LINUX MINT EXCLUSIVELY... NO DUAL BOOT, NO VIRTUAL MACHINE
Failure is not an option. It comes bundled with your Microsoft product.

Bleeping Computer has an excellent tutorial section devoted to Windows 8 which could help you.
My other suggestion is to upgrade the Windows 8 computer to Windows 10 which is way better than 8.

Thank you both so very much for sharing your vote of confidence with me regarding WIN 10. Personally, I'd go back to Win 7 Professional on this laptop if I could. I'm somewhat familiar with that OS and it doesn't seem to try to take control away from me like 8.1 does. It's also a heck of a lot easier using and finding things on a computer running 7 than 8.1. The other issue is I'm reading far too many negative things about WIN 10 that aren't sitting well with me and I'm already uncomfortable enough with the privacy issues that Win 8.1 has. Perhaps some day I'll upgrade... when the OS we have are no longer supported or when computer geniuses find work arounds for all of the concerns I have to date.
editing to add...
Queen-Evie< I found that tutorial section and loved it. I've got at least 7 pages from it bookmarked along with about 15 threads that looked really helpful that I found before I rgistered that I go back to for self-help. That was a great suggestion. Thank you.
