Also, to clarify > Touch is enabled, correct?
Yes, it's bass ackwards.The experience of using it is similar to all the complaints about 8 when it came out, where when closed an app you where returned to the Start Screen and not to the desktop.
So now in 10 when you run anything from the Start Screen, it runs on the desktop, when closing apps down you are just left on the desktop.
Although not an expert by any means, but I'm beginning to think that by working on a farm at a very young age with all that machinery, working construction with hand & power tools/ladders/scaffolds for 44 years, mechanical tools, growing up on a river boating/skiing/swimming, playing a horn/marching in a few drum & bugle corps as a teener, snow skiing, bowling, table billiards, singing karaoke, using a computer for 20 years (mostly keyboard), and cell phones since bags (just to name a few) that I just may know more about ergonomics than most people here. There is a certain "rhythm" that a user gains interacting and performing with any one of those. One becomes part of the machine or instrument and it/they become a part of the user so to speak. Ask any musician.This is one of the reasons I have been trying out the Start Menu, in 10 currently this provides a much nicer way of working (as everything is desktop oriented), I find the Start Screen annoying with it taking me to the desktop for everything
There's no rhythm to be found in the Start Menu. It broke mine every time, so that's why I plastered icons on my Taskbar/desktop and knew exactly where they were all at, very similar to the Start Screen. WinKey/D with the left hand and mouse click with the right > Boom > Open. Now performed all with a keyboard on the Start Screen.
Ditto + ½ on 8.1! Not sure about 10 at this point.I will change and adapt to 10 when it comes out, but for me so far 8.1 provides a much nicer experience.
Getting rid of Win32 would be my guess.With Office I am not to sure now If everything is running on the desktop, what advantage would there be to a modern office over the traditional layout
