    Technical Assistance (Windows 8.1)

    A while back I installed windows 8.1 on my desktop, I'm liking it so far, it's a bit wonky and takes some getting used to but overall it's nice to see something different.

    Here's the thing, I'm having some minor issues I can't really pinpoint to why and I can't find anything on it on google.
    Not really sure where to begin.

    So to begin with, my charms or whatever the edge thingies are called sometimes doesn't show up when I scroll to the edge of the screen.
    More often than not, they stay missing.

    I'm also having another issue that I'd like solved.
    When in the start screen I can't really pin anything or remove anything because the context menu doesn't show up when I right click anything.

    The menu that is suppose to show up in the bottom of the screen has been missing for about 3 weeks now.
    Help?

    Erm.. First of all, are you saying that when you move your mouse to the right of your screen the menu doesn't pop up?
    To fix that you just have to move your mouse to the top right of the screen.
    Second of all, the menu should show up at the bottom for the options.
    You could try finding the answer here, but I don't know if it will help your problem. Good luck, though

    Grow up. Also, there's nothing wrong with Windows 8.

    Actually, I'd consider Windows 8's Metro on PC's as a failure. Granted the idea was great (for tablets) but the way it was implemented into the general desktops/laptops without touch screens was absolutely terrible.

    I'm totally fine with you thinking it's a failure, but that's your opinion. I like it, that doesn't mean you have to like it.

    Even though its not really a solution to your problem, I use Startisback+ which makes it look and act just like Win7. Haven't had any problems yet
    Oh hai der.

    Windows 8 is a very good operating system. I can't wait to see what logical explanation you can give as to why it
