PC hardware--CPU & Motherboard & RAM/How do I change it to the old way?
I have an Acer laptop with Windows 8.1 on it. I heard there's a way to get the "old" windows desktop layout for 8.1 because it's more user friendly. Can you help me with this? Also, where can I find things like Accessories and all the other good things from all the other versions of Windows?
There are two ways to get the old style start menu:
1.- The built-in sort of start menu in Windows 8.1, which need some customization on your side. Have not tried it, but there are some caveats. Instructions and explanations can be found in: http://www.pcworld.com/article/2927609/how-to-find-the-secret-start-menu-built-i
2.- install a third party program: There is an application called ClasicShell, which allows you to have a customizable Start Menu the same way it looked in older Windows versions. Te following link shows how to get and install it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ji5HO-Hv6qw
Hope it helps,
