How to navigate to Accessories section

Answers

  • Hello John,

    I didn't test this before I answered you and you are correct in that I don't see an Accessories section.
    However, if you type in Accessories and it brings up the Search page, if you click on Apps, you will
    see Notepad, calculator, Notepad, connect to a projector and most items that were brought up in Accessories section.
    You can type in Paint at search and it will bring up any Paint application.

    You can also send feedback to the developers about this issue.

    To submit feedback using the Windows Feedback Tool from the Connect Site associated with your Windows Developer Preview program. If you’re an MSDN subscriber, the information on how to join the Connect program is included on the download page where you installed Windows Developer Preview.

  • On the start page, if you type in Accessories, does it bring it up?

  • I tried that as I did in the search pane and the results stated zero. I think that the accessories feature is not available as that would be in a basic OS as most of the programs associated with the accessories features are part of Microsoft's programming and so far, this preview addition seems to be dedicated to developing and testing applications. It seems also you must have touch screen capabilities for most, if not all the Metro apps to function and some engage, but only work for a short period of time. I believe that the core drivers are just basic and you will need to install more advance drivers to bring out the full function of these apps. Just my opinion.
