Oops, Street View isn't supported in this version of your browser.

To access Street View, open your browser on the desktop, or download Google Chrome.

this is what I get if I try to use Google maps from the desktop. has Google not configured maps for windows 8, or is it because I am on 64bit

Are you using the G Maps App from the store? Street view works OK using that.

Open the charms bar, select search, type g maps in the box and scroll down to Store. A page will open with a list of about 7. Click on G Maps free and it will take you to the download page.
