Most Annoying Things About Windows 8 & How To Fix Them [Infographic]

4 Years Ago By Diana Adams

Sometimes it seems like Microsoft is in a no win situation. They have a reputation for not being innovative enough, and they know they need to ‘think different.’ Then they release a radical Windows 8, which is way different than what users were expecting, and they are slammed for it. Users expect Microsoft to keep everything familiar, yet they’ll complain about them for that same reason. I’ll admit, there are definitely things about Windows 8 that are annoying.

I’m not going to go into the whole Start Menu argument since it’s been done to death, but trust me, there is a reason why that is number one on the infographic below. This infographic called Most Annoying Features Of Windows 8 by Chassis Plans goes through the top 8 most annoying things about Windows 8.

In addition to just listing the problems though, they took it one step further and offer a solution for each one. Of course, for some of them there is no solution, so in that case they offer a way to make it a little better (like a workaround). I’m very impressed with this in-depth infographic, and it may be the most helpful one you read today.

Microsoft has sold more than 100 million Windows 8 licenses. Although touch enabled Windows 8 devices are not progressing as quickly as they had hoped, 100 million is still a lot. It’s along the same lines as Windows 7. According to this recent article on The Verge, Microsoft defends the changes. However, most people think version 8.1 will return back to being more like what users expect. I’m curious to know, what are the things about Windows 8 that you like or don’t like?

There’s nothing I really hate about Win8 since I’m a pretty basic user of Windows. In other words I go on Google Chrome a lot. So Windows 8 starts and I immediately click on the Desktop app so it looks like the familiar windows we all know and love and then click on the Chrome browser icon. I mostly ignore the Win8 metro portion of the OS. Sometimes I’ll check the Windows store to see if they have any new apps worth getting. They usually don’t.

The reason why I hate the apps (besides being boring) as a desktop user is that they seem lock you into a program. I feel trapped in the app. I know you can bring the cursor to the corners of the screen to switch to other apps or the desktop, but it’s hidden until the cursor gets there. I like windows desktop where I can stay in a window and minimize it and use tabs. Open many windowed screens at once. I’m old school. I also hate that every Win8 app needs to show a logo when it starts up? Just get to the app. The new metro ui seems like it was created with idiocracy in mind. It has a fisher price vibe to it.
