Re: What's New in Windows 8.1

There is a nice feature in Windows 8, that I hope has been kept in 8.1.

If you mouse over to the lower left corner of the desktop and wait for the
Start tile to appear, you can right click it.

This brings up a menu of most of the things a Enthusiast - Tinkerer would want.

* Programs and Features
* mobility center
* Power Options
* Event viewer
* System
* Device Manager
* Disk Management
* Computer Management
* Command Prompt
* Command Prompt (Administrator)
* Task Manager
* Control Panel
* File Explorer
* Search
* Run
* Desktop
