This a poor work around to regain the functionality lost in the new user interface. The thing that I've always valued in the Windows environment has been that while it had an interface that was easy enough for novices to figure out, it didn't restrict experts. It allowed me to setup my desktop and applications in such a way that I was able to be productive. I wasn't constantly being forced to reach for a mouse. The new interface not only requires me to reach for a mouse but it has forced desktop/notebook users to use a user interface designed for a smart phone. I'd even prefer the current desktop to the new interface on my XOOM tablet. The Metro interface is a big disappointment if it's what's required to be used on a device other than a smart phone.
