Re: Win 8 & Win 10 vsWin 7

That's so weird.

I pressed the search key, typed 'vari' and it offered System variables and Env variables.

I reckon maybe 10 seconds, tops.

The problem is that you want to locate things by knowing where everything is - that went out with the Ark.

Why poke about through the start menu? I use it on WIn7 solely to use recent programs and search.

Search works well with Win7 too (also search, 'vari'), not as cool as Win8 though since apps are used in Win8 search - I like the Amazon app being used instead of the web page for a result for instance, not to mention the full page results so you know what is worth looking at.
