    Default Windows 8

    Hate it. Wish I got the windows 7 version on our new laptop. I think I need to do a course on how to use it. Going to check YouTube out to learn it as I'm stuck with it now.

    Did anyone else have the problem where when you went to do an @ it came up as " and vice versa?

    I had to google how to fix it as I thought it was a bug! Turned out keyboard was set as UK and not US! I didn't think there was a difference in keyboard set outs for different countries!

    That's one problem i haven't had. My keyboard seems to be set out the same as my desktop keyboard. I thought we used UK english/settings here by default? It's what i always pick when setting up computers.

    I love it too it's so nice and neat. I thought it'd frustrate me as I go between windows 7 at work, to a Mac at home and windows 8 on the laptop. But 8 would have to be my favourite now!

    Hate it with a passion. I still don't know how to shut down a program so end up using the task manager all the time. And the stupid side bar with the settings bit always friggen pops out when I don't need it & never when I do.

    It's craptastic.
