    Beggin' yer puddin', sir, but I just clicked on the Start Icon and typed Fire for Firefox and up popped Mozilla Firefox! Can't get better than that and I didn't even use third party start menus in Windows 8.1. Doesn't like 'em. Typed paint (without ms) and up jumped paint; typed msp and up jumped paint.

    Cortana!?!? Ain't no way, Jose! Not no way, no how!
