    Did you know, you can search in Windows 8 without using the Charms Bar and clicking on "Search"?
    When on the Start Screen, just type what you want to search for.
    Doesn't work when on the Desktop.
    Nice little feature and improvement.

    two clicks, as we know, but the so-called "Power" menu also has search embedded. (Right click in right corner of legacy desktop)

    Don't know how everyone Else's PC is set-up, but on mine right clicking in "right" corner gives me "Show Desktop", "Peek at Desktop", "Left" corner gives me the "Power Menu"

    Just thought I'd mention it. [​IMG]

    Too many things "easily done" wrong at my age, I'm afraid.
