Hello and good morning to you all. My cousin has just purchased an Acer windows 8 laptop. She is struggling to get to grips with the layout, as she's always been used to windows 7 and the simple start programs many. I'm after ANY worthwhile and totally 100% free program where she can remove all the tiles of windows 8, and just have the simple windows 7 start menu and just look for ANy programs from the simple start menu of windows 7.

We are looking for a program that absolutely free with no dodgy spyware or toolbars enclosed please.

many thanks

Or you could configure to start the computer on the desktop,if you dont like the tiles. Right click/Taskbar/properties/navigation

Also make sure files open with desktop programs and not the apps
