Windows 8 logo from www.oostdam.infoWindows 8 is a very nice product to my opinion. It is based on the previous 7 version but it can use apps instead of programs, but there is a full compatibility. Every program that runs on Windows 7 will run on Windows 8 as well. This product is amazing. Microsoft improved it in so many ways that a new set of articles will appear on this site the next couple of weeks. I love it, and this experience is only based on the beta developer version. Lets hope the RTM and final release will be available soon. I'm afraid it will not be until autumn 2012.


In this article I want to show you how to access the settings in your desktop view in Windows 8. When you click on the place where you used to find the Start button, on the Windows flag, you will return to the Metro GUiI. So how do you reach settings and other stuff in the desktop view?



Just to be a little more specific,...

You are pointing in the right direction but you have to hold your mouse for
a brief moment in the little black spot in the left bottom corner.

And then,.... everything pops-up in your screen!

Not to easy, I know, but it works!

Now you can access your devices and settings again.

Enjoy, working with Windows 8!





Hopes this article has helped you, and getting you enthusiastic for Windows 8 as much as I already am!
