Simple question about Win 8
« on: May 29, 2013, 10:35:27 AM »
Doing a search made me dizzier and more uncertain than I care to explain.  So question:

Can Windows 8 be set up for the desktop icons to scroll vertically instead of horizontally?

Things that move from side to side literally set of my balance to puke syndrome. Before I consider getting anything with Win 8 I'd rather know if this is an option.

I don't know about changing the horizontal scrolling to vertical but it is possible to bypass the new "home" screen and run Windows 8 from the desktop like in Windows 7. I had to get a new computer and Win 8 was the ony option for the laptop I wanted. I did not like the tiles and even went so far as to delete all the apps. I downloaded a program to put the "Start" button back on the desktop and the program boots up my computer to the desktop. I sometimes even forget it is Windows 8.

Sorry that this doesn't exactly answer your question, but if you have to upgrade and can't find a solution, there are ways around that whole screen entirely.

Actually it answers it better than I had hoped. Thank you so much for responding. At least I don't have to fret of the possible nightmares of sliding window boxes.
