Hi Dch48,

I guess you know why you have set your actual prefs and settings as you have them. I also think you "dictate" that machine and not the other way around as is the factual situation with the majority of users,

I am more than satisfied with Win7. I am not a fan of the dreaded metro look. Give me the good old icons any day.
I have an idea on what people can do with the metro look.
I just can't say it here.  ;D
The use of the "Modern Desktop" is totally up to the user.
There are enough settings and 3rd party apps that allow you to totally bypass the Modern Desktop.

I'm going to upgrade to W8 Pro from W7 Pro and I'll give this crazy bastard W8 a spin as you know I hate the new look, and if I don't like it I'll change it back to W7 Pro and have peace with it because MS W7 support and receive updates doesn't end until January 14, 2020

PS. Can I change the W8 Pro style into W7 Pro because my new laptop is not a touch screen IF this can be done, you may as well just save my hairy arse from hating MS W8 bullsh#t :-X :-X :-X :-X :-X :-X :-X :-X :-X :-X :-X

Also is their any warning I need to know before I upgrade to W8 Pro, I've already did a system image backup of W7 Pro.

You can always use Classic Shell, It's free and you won't have to use Metro if you don't want to.
