Ok, I don't use Windows 8. So Sunday when I had to load a DVD of pictures up for a slide show it was my first attempt.

On windows 7
1) Open Directory
2) Double Click image
3) Done

On Windows 8
1) Wait for action after inserting DVD
2) Decide nothing is happening
3) Browse to file
4) Can't find way to browse
5) Click explore from the popup that finally appears
6) Double click image discover no slide show feature
7) Goto Start
8) Slide for Slide Show App
9) Discover that I have to import the DVD to an approved location to view
10) Wait
11) Finally get to the slide show 15 minutes later (no hyperbole)

Ok, I understand a lot of this is from my in-experience. But, making a novel process doesn't necessarily improve it? If something is simple, fast, and well understood why change it?

I am sure if I knew how to get to Desktop mode I may have been able to do it faster.
Need custom software developed? I do custom programming based primarily on MS tools with an emphasis on C# development and consulting.
