View Full Version : Disable Metro in W8

03-20-2012, 07:28 PM
Anyone know is there is a way of disabling the Metro desktop in W8 to a more familiar desktop?
I ask this as I have seen so many reports about how awkward it is unless you have a touch screen.

Also what is the easiest way to find folders now that Windows Explorer has vanished?

All help much appreciated

The finished version of W8 will have both the new touchscreen desktop and the old W7 desktop both available so that if you are not using a touch screen you will be able to use it exactly as you use W7.

I haven't found the time to actually try out W8 yet so I haven't looked for the option to swap between the two desktops but the information that Microsoft has released clearly indicates that the old desktop is still there and can still be used the same as before.
