Windows-8-Frustration-No-2

 

After yesterday’s rant against Windows 8, I had a small break through.  I found a tab/tile sporting the title “Getting started with Windows 8”.  So, I sez to myself, “Self,” I sez, “Why not have a bo peep”  So I did!

  What I found made me feel really silly.  There in black and white were instructions to move the mouse pointer to the Windows icon in bottom left corner of the screen,  then right-click the mouse, and lo and behold, up pops a menu…just like this.menu

Lots of the areas one would often use…just hidden away behind

a Right Click.  

BUT THERE IS NO FLAMIN’ INDICATION THAT IT IS USEFUL TO EVEN POINT THE MOUSE IN THAT DIRECTION…….LET ALONE RIGHT CLICK!!!!!!!!

AND why a right-click?  Why change from the usual LEFT Click??

And as for the Getting Started with Windows 8 tile, I spent most of the day wondering why I had not seen it prior to yesterday.  Started my computer tonight and saw the words for a split second before its name changed to Frequently Asked Questions.

So, I figure that if I READ some more instructions I might make the Windows 8 experience a little easier for myself.  Who knows I may even make another post about a new discovery.

But I must ask that no-one tell MGW that I actually read some instructions…..please???!!!

My contribution for this week’s

Nature and Animals

Challenge

Only realised today that I had not created a Fun Foto challenge although in hindsight most of those created, this week, were related to nature and/or animals.

Sad to think that one like this may not be around for the next group of travellers.
