Do you experience this problem now on 4th May 2020?
There were a lot of talks regarding the WIndows 8 first screen optimized for touch devices and yes, I don’t like it at all also. Just trying to skip it as soon as possible and come to the desktop.
Touch devices with Windows 8… Anybody buying this? Satisfied? Personally it would be useful to have Surface PRO – thin as iPad with cover as a keyboard as a travelling machine from which you can do interesting work or system administration when you are out of the office.
I don’t like not having the START button but I got used to it easy – all important commands are already in my fingers.
The most annoying thing in Windows 8 is when you disable UAC (User Account Control), so Windows 8 will not ask you every time when starting the apps, is that you can not still save the changes in your files because you are not starting this application as Administrator. Who was the “brain” that proposed this?
This is the recipe how to fix it but note that this will also break the Microsoft Store.
Powershell (run as Administrator)
Set-ItemProperty -Path "HKLM:\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System" -Name "EnableLUA" -Value "0" #Default value is 1 shutdown -r -t 0
