Re: My Metro Screen Windows 8

said by Freddy:

Hi All,

I've finished a clean install of Win8 on a new computer I put together with a touchscreen (HP 21.5" L2206tm). I really like Windows 8 and Metro. I was getting tired of seeing the same old desktop. My desktop on Windows 8 is very barren.

It only took me about 15 minutes to figure out the Metro interface. I removed all the Metro Apps that Windows installed, and replaced them with my normal programs and stuff.

I haven't looked at the Apps yet to decide what I want to use. I haven't finished installing all my regular programs yet, but this is what I have so far:

Where's all your Windows Apps?

gate1975mim,

I just unpinned the Windows Apps from the Start screen, because I've not determined which of those I'm interested in. All the Apps now reside on the screen you see when you click on Search on the Charms Bar. They're still available to add back to the Start screen.
