    hi there,

    We understand that i is quite a tricky for many users to use Window 8 for the first time. And it might be really tough to handle the new OS for those who use it migrating themselves to it directly form the all time favorite OS in the history (WINDOWS XP).

    To you being new user, I would like to tell you that nearly everything has changed in Window 8 than to Window XP. Microsoft's Windows 8 Consumer Preview should put to rest any doubts that the company wasn't serious about creating a touch-first operating system. So mice and keyboard PC users looking to upgrade to Windows 8 later in 2012, are going to have to get used to living in a touch-centric world.

    And according to a strategy plan, making metro apps successful, direct list to the recent items or recently used programs have been eliminated. Though, some of the recently used items can be found in metro apps in the end.

    Hope i could make my point..!!
