    I'm trying to get used to using WIN8 and not constantly work from the desktop. I DO MISS the date and time being displayed in the lower right corner of my screen when NOT in desktop mode. Is there a way to have that show up while in WIN8 programs or when using IE etc. from the start up screen? THANKS!

    In metro/modern mode, if you just move your mouse to hoover over bottom left/right, that will prompt the charms bar on the right and show the date/time on the left.

    Thank you. As soon as I hook this new puter up to a printer, I can print out the shortcuts. I don't feel like I'm doing THAT WELL with WIN8, but I'm determined to learn it--and am grateful for all the help I'm finding here. :)

    Youtube has some really good videos on some of the in's/out's of windows 8 from other users. It's worth checking out. Once you've used windows 8 for 2 to 4 weeks you'll be a pro at it.

    YOUTUBE is a wonderful idea. I went there as you suggested and learned quite a bit re: navigating WIN8 and the new start menu vs. desktop etc. THANKS for the great advice.

    You can always go to app store and download digital live clock. That is what I do.
