No, your not really derailing anything..lol I appreciate the input.
On this computer of mine, when you bring up the START menu, it is that screen with all the tiles.
And far left lower corner is a tile that brings up the ol classic desk top type screen. I use that mode.
You just got to be careful and NOT touch the screen..lol Or else it'll go there, or DO SOMETHING you didn't intend for it to do!
It sounds like a lot of folks have trouble getting the chat window to work on ATS...which is a shame.
There are a lot of folks here I'd like the opportunity to get to know better, really smart folks, with good critical thinking skills. Nothing like a
good deep thinking conversation to get the brain juices flowing..lol.
There just isn't a whole lot of folks you can strike up a conversation with over the things that come up here on ATS..I call em sheeple, lemmings..
asleep at the wheel, etc, etc. LOL They are really ok folks; but if you bring up the guys at the Boston Bombing who were members of THE CRAFT
mercenary group for one example;...they would just look at you with this glazed doughnut expression!
I will just wait for my computer from the states to get out of the Customs matrix here in Oz and see if it survived the 6 months of being tossed
around and jostled, and give it a go.
Even with the classic look option to run this computer it lacks the old start button you mentioned...sigh.
But it works pretty good most of the time, IF I get a decent connection going w/ the wifi setup we must use.
Yeah, hindsight is a mutha isn't it??? If I would have KNOWN what Windows 8 WAS, and how it worked BEFORE I got this puter, I would have opted for a
different one. Windows 8 truly sucks in my opinion.
I don't have a Windows 7 DVD either.. I will just have to live without ATS Chat somehow for the time being.
THANK YOU for your suggestions and input though.
