    In the lower left corner of the start screen there should be a clickable box labeled "Desktop"  Clicking that should bring you to something that is much more visually familiar and far easier to navigate.  

    I don't like Windows 8 by any means. But once I figured this out it got a lot easier to use.

    •  You can quickly toggle (0+ / 0-)

      between the metro view and the desktop view using the "Windows" key on certain keyboards - if you have a Windows machine you probably have a "Windows" key on your keyboard.

    •  I did find that if I left click an app it gives an (0+ / 0-)

      option to pin to Start which allows the app to be dragged to the far left of the 1st Start page, that is accessed by the Windows key.  

      At least that gets the apps for the programs I use and haven't yet figured out how to get onto my desk top in a position to be easily found.

      But it is sill in a totally different Window than the desktop where they will be used, like Snipping Tool which has to be told to "open in a new window" which then reopens the desktop with the Snipping Tool window in the middle of the desk top.

    •  I do see where if I get the cursor right next to (0+ / 0-)

      the LL corner the Windows icon comes up and it does get me back to the desk top.
