how can I make the Windows 8 desktop look more like Windows 7 desktop?
Posted on 2014-03-30
Hello and Good Morning Everyone,
I recently purchased a new Acer laptop with Windows 8 preinstalled. To my surprise, the desktop of this operating system is entirely different from what I am accustomed too from its predecessor operating system, Windows 7. With that point in mind, could someone provide some instructions, a document link, or a multi-media link which outlines the steps of returning it more to a classic look?
At this point, I have been blindly navigating with it this morning just to realize that there is going to be a huge learning curve here. I am currently at a screen labeled PC Settings which appears to have some menus for customizing the look of Windows 8. I was able to change the time zone to match that of my own, but, I was unable to change the actual time. And, I do not know how to exit from this screen either to go back to the desktop that loaded at startup. As everyone can tell, I need help with just the basics or getting started with Windows 8. I do believe if I can change the look of it to match as closely to what I am accustomed to with Windows 7, it will be a nice start.
Thanks in advance for any help given to this concern. I will look forward to hearing from everyone.
