    I just bought a new laptop with Windows 8.

    Without this forum, I would really have struggled as it is so different from Windows 7.

    Having installed Classic Shell and de-appified as much as possible, I now have the machine generally operating as I would like.

    My opinion of Windows 8, or rather the way it was foisted upon the public, is not very high to say the least.

    Sincere thanks to Medico for taking the trouble to start the thread, in which he and others like Clint shared their considerable expertise and experience.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!! I can see I will be bust trying nearly all of these much needed "fixes" to Win 8. Maybe I will even like what's left?

    Thanks. This looks good. (So far the Classic Shell solution alone hasn't worked; if a finger is near the right side of the touchpad, the &*^&% charms bar pops up.)
