Re: Microsoft explained why they killed start button
i use the start button all the time, always make the icons small and pin my most used software and some directories there. Search for stuff not pinned.
I really do not like to pin icons on the task bar as i often have many programs or directories up at the same time so i need the space to get a good overview.
My desktop tends to get filled with files and shortcuts so I hide the darn things. So it sort of just acts like a temporary place to store stuff i work with and I don't have to see them to know they are there.
