Windows 8 & 8.1 Tips

Posted 18 January 2013 - 09:20 AM

Ok after much internet search and what not trying to find the notepad in windows 8 without having use the run executable, I final was able to find it.

All the internet searches tell you to do the follow:

hover over the start menu at the bottom left hand corner and when the menu pops up hover tot he bottom left of that menu. After this a section will pop up that says applications. Click that and there it is.

Well the above is wrong.


The correct method:

Open your right side menu and click on the search Icon.
On the right side when all the apps open is the accessory menu with notepad right there.
