However, HP has no support for the notebook for the available free downgrade to Windows 7. Uggh. If the notebook had a touch screen it might be a bit different...

In 8.1 MS added access to the desktop, but you have to know to right click the little Windows icon where Start used to be. But that doesn't work when a Win 8 app is running. Closing a full screen W8.x app requires an odd mouse gesture that isn't in any manual: using a different machine, I had to Google how to close the control panel. Click the top of the screen (where ever you can find space not occupied by controls or links) and drag down.
StartmenuX is free and restores your full start panel and skips the tiles at startup taking you straight to the desktop. In your mouse setting remove the swipe for charms stetting and you have the same desktop as in Win7, but faster and with less CPU usage. Works on both win8 and 8.1. Problem solved.

RE: Win10 icon in system tray
I plan on waiting for Windows 10.1 ... seems only the Microsoft -tocks are usable.

ps: for fun, who remembers using 120k disks (single sided single density) ? or, for the more rare early adopter, 8" 400k disks ? My Slicer 80186 based SBC used dual 8" 1.2< DS/DD, and a 10MB 5 1/4" SCSI drive. It ran CPM.

Not sure of the size but we had a TRS-80 that had large floppy disks. It was later upgraded with a 5mb hard drive.

Arggh; a friend had one of those Trash Eighties (his words). I had a Commodore 64 with cassette and I was jealous of the TRS-80 floppy. I eventually moved up to a Compaq 8086 desktop with dual floppies - my first home PC that I could use for work (not the portable suitcase model). DOS rules! lol.

Earlier, late 1970's, I was using Tek 4051 and 4052 computers as instrument controllers for test systems. Those used real multi-track data tape drives and had 1024x1024 displays years ahead of the industry. The industry has come a long way.

Still have a ton of those sitting in shelves both here in my office and at home. No way to read them out, of course. Must take them into the comp-eng department and have them all transferred to a USB stick....

My first was a Tandy Model 1 with 4K of RAM. I then got an Apple IIe and added a 5 MB external HD and two floppies. Now I have a Mac and a POS Lenovo laptop.

We switched to Lenovo after years of buying from Dell. Lenovo didn't make it one year before we went back to Dell. Sad... They could have been a contender. /GodFather

RE: Win10 icon in system tray
I switched from Dell to HP for my laptops. Had to remove a ton of crapola, of course, but that's true of nearly anything now. I build or have someone else build my desktops.

I still have all of my working hard drives, including my first "real" one of 40mb I got from a computer show at a race track in NJ way back in '90. Amazing, isn't it, how far they have come in such a short time? I got a little Ninja dude on my desk that is a USB key drive. He holds 2GB.
