Now you only have the option when right click to pin to the taskbar or startup
    Why would you want to have a shortcut on the desktop anyway. The only shortcut I keep for any length of time is the Recycle Bin.

    My old habit is that I do not want anything on my desktop except the picture I put there. I boot directly to a clean desktop.

    I have worked on PCs that have so many icons (many of them duplicates) that I don't know how the owner can find anything!

    My desktop is my workspace more often than not, I couldn't stand to have clutter and images behind my work.

    I have to go along with the very clean desktop. Right now the only shortcut is for a Python tool, Page, but that's the only way I can start it up. And I have a calendar, and other small things but it's not a cluttered look.

    swipe from the left until the first app starts appearing, then move your thumb back towards the edge

    should give a list of open store app down the left hand side, just swiping from the left on its own switches back to the last used app

    I'm with you Robin. I like having program shortcuts on the desktop for quick access. The only time I see the desktop is when I first boot up my PC and when I close one app to open another. So the clutter of a few icons doesn't bother me in the least.

    I used to have them as well... then I moved them to the task bar. But now I have them on the new start menu and I'm happy with the way I have my PC set up.
