Life Bettering......I now have a Windows 8 touch laptop. I was very hesitant at first at using the touch feature, probably due to the fact that I hadn't used one before. I now love to just use my hand to scroll to the docs and things that I need rather than going to the start button. Although Windows 8 looks very different that Windows 7, there are some great features in getting to things in a little quicker way. It's just getting used to something new.
Just so you know, I still have my Windows 7 desktop and a Windows 7 laptop as well. What is your favorite? Windows 7 or Windows 8?
I've played around with Windows 8 with touch and non-touch computers. At work, I use both Windows and Macintosh computers. I find my fingers consistently moving to the screen on ALL computers to interact with the screen. Coworkers often ask what I'm doing when my fingers to go the screen as I am reminded the computer I'm using does not have the touch feature. While I've used and liked Windows 7, I think I enjoy the touch screen.
My dislike of Windows 8 (based on a setting I've not changed yet) is how touching the screen always brings up the on-screen keyboard. I'd like this to be turned off if I've got an external keyboard attached. Has anyone figured out the trick for this yet?
