Before you used win8 did you use win7?
Where did you download the classic start?
I went to ninite.com to get the classic start and when I installed it it
automatically set it up to look like win7. Anything I had on the desktop
You can go through the settings and also make it look like windows xp
I will have to turn on the win8 compute later to see how it put everything..
I am still learning the terms, I am assuming that the tiles is what I see
when I first log into windows where I can type a in the edit box to locate
something, well if you are navigating through the start menu and locate
start screen it shows those tiles but if you hit the start menu again the
tiles go away.
I am so used to win7 so I find it it is easier to find what I am looking
But all the programs you had with the tiles and charms and now in the
classic start menu.
I hope I am explaining this correctly.
But as far as NVDA, it is much clearer then it used to be and I find that
the keystrokes are a combination between jaws and window eyes.
But since I do have so many computers I use jaws on my primary computer
which is the one I am on now.

I have tried NVDA but find the irritating and hard to understand and
the keystrikes a little little complex than I like. Also, I was able
to load the same Jaws disk without buyihng multiple copies to put onto
my laptop and desktop, one running 32 bit, the other 64 bit but both
Win. 8. I honestly had the Classic Shell installed but didn't know how
to use it. I tried reinstalling and wonder if I did it right, since
the normal tiles don't show up anymore when loading my desktop. do you
know what I mean? They only show up when I do certain files, but can'
can't nail down the specifics of how to access them when on this
desktop mode. Is this normal or is esthe tiles as before. Even the
serach search charm disappeared when trying to put Claasiic Classic
Shell on . IS this normal forfunctionality or did something bad happen
to my desktop?
