    I don't use my computer for games and entertainment, I'm all for progress, however there should be somewhat of a transition. Just my opinion!

    Move your pointer to the bottom left corner, click on the icon for the start screen.

    On the screen that comes up, click on "Desktop" icon.

    Wha la -- Windows 7 desktop appears.

    Feel better now?

    We've had Windows 8 for about a month and I totally dislike it.

    Whomever came up with Windows 8 should be fired. It may work ok on a tablet, but not for a desk top.

    Less than 6 months ago, I got a laptop with Windows 7 on it. My old desktop had Vista......I love Windows 7.....Vista is the worst memory hog and slowest OS I ever used. My new desktop which is almost 3 months old runs Windows 7.

    I doubt I will go to Windows 8 anytime soon.

    It's just like a big phone. I quite like it.
