Just before Christmas, Mr P surprised me, with a new laptop.
My old one was getting so slow. Filling it up with photos wasn't helping.
He was tired of hearing me
gripe bemoan that fact.
And so, this arrived at the front door.
I had a Dell before. This Toshiba is a bit different. The touch pad is taking a while to get used to.
I have to turn it off when I'm typing. A slight touch, makes the cursor dance all over the place, and before I know it, I'm typing somewhere I didn't want. And, those fun times, when whole PAGES were deleted.
I know, as my daughter-in-law tells me, I could use a remote mouse, like she has to.
But, that's just more stuff to keep up with.
And...Windows 8...what can I say?
From my point of view, it's NOT an improvement.
It takes more 'steps' to do things than the old system did. I'm not crazy about the 'tiles'.
They might make more sense on a touch screen.
So, I click on that lower left tile. It takes me to the desktop, which is close to the old kind.
I can navigate easier from there.
When they make something 'new & improved', it should be BETTER.
Don't you think?
But, I'm learning. I guess you CAN teach an old dog, new tricks.
I learn something new, every day. That's a good thing....sometimes.
The weather today is beautiful here.
I need to get off this computer, and get outside in the garden.
I hope the weather is good where you are.
If you're in the frozen part of the country, stay warm & hang in there.
Nothing stays the same way for long.
Things always change.
