Gnashing of teeth
Windows 8...
Got a few useful shortcust added to their start page, chucked ones that'll never be used.
But
Where's Solitaire, Freecell, the Calculator?
How do I get the good old Start menu back (or simulate it)?

OK, the old games are a free dl from the Apps Store
And calc (and other accessories) is there, but could do with a shortcut on the desktop (IMHO)
I'd still like a Start menu. With Control Panel on it...

If you don't mind installing something else, http://classicshell.sourceforge.net/ should do it.

When I had a very brief Google t'other day I found stuff that worked on the pre-release but it wasn't clear what worked on the finla version. I shall check.
