No more accessories like calculator and voice recorder?

#1
Are the Accessories gone in Windows 8? I tried to find the calculator and recorder, but have they been discontinued? If so, any suggestions on replacements? Thank you.

They are still there. You may have to pin them to the start. Select all apps and right click each of the item , and, then, from the bottom bar, "Pin to Start"

Hi

Yes, I use calculator all the time, it opens from a key on my Microsoft keyboard, so I never really thought about where you access it onscreen.

I do remember that I had a hard time finding Note Pad, and have an icon for it on my task-bar now.

if you use any of these regularly it's much easier to tell it to place a link on the task-bar.

Mike
