  8. This is just awesome. Thanks a lot Scott.

  9. wow you make this look so easy thanks for sharing my friend has Windows 8 and does not have a clue how to use it so I shared the link with her you made me even want to buy Windows 8 but I am waiting for Windows 10 now so I will subscribe to you so when it does maybe you can post a video for that also thanks again

  10. Is there a way to slide through videos like pictures?

  11. Thanks for the video!
    I now will go nowhere near Windows 8, wanted a 17" laptop but I'll hang on for a second hand Win 7.
    And if I can't get one, I'll keep this laptop going!

  12. What about the touch side of Windows 8?  This video was great for showing all of the different features of Win 8 – but everything was done with a mouse.  This video relied heavily on the ability to right click.  So far I have found Win 8 very frustrating to use with touch gestures.  And I can't seem to find a good video that shows the touch stuff.  I am amazed that Win 8 didn't come with a built in on-screen touch tutorial that "trains" the user how to use the touch gestures.  Most video games have some sort of on-screen training mode that helps you understand the basics.  To me, that should have been a no-brainer for Win 8.

  13. Bravo!  This is the first vid that shows me that I can still run five apps at a time and shape them and place them anyway I want on the screen without using SNAP.
    Some people reading this might think so may apps at a time is unusual.  Some apps, especially communications apps work together.

  14. Cheese is moved and hidden. I just fail to see the advantage of 8. I've tried to fix problems on 8 computers and it requires a huge investment of time to get to the guts of windows so I can make the necessary fixes. To make it work at all it seems to require a huge amount of brain memory overhead to remember the names of things so I can find it in the search box, requires a lot of key combinations (after Win 3.0 I've only managed to remember control at delete), and weird mouse movements and clicks. I love the menu system. I can find my stuff. 

  15. Scott,
    I am so glad I googled this video. It was such a help! My desktop was running Windows 98, so you can imagine my horror when I logged into the new Windows!!!  My new laptop is Windows 8.1…seems to be a little different, but nothing I can't handle :).
    ~~~Now to get you here to fix my washing machine!!!!
    Thanks a bunch!
    Kimmie

  17. Scott, or someone, may I ask a question? Why does the ITunes updates come up so often. I don't even use ITunes. Do I need to download their updates when I'm asked. Thank you so much for answering.
