unpinning the majority of the tiles from the Start Screen and just using the desktop to access your programs?
For example; Install Corel Draw, go to the Start Screen select all 30 tiles it installed and unpin them. The Corel icons will be the last 30 tiles on the Start Screen.
If you do all of your work on the desktop, then all you need is the Desktop tile in the upper left corner of your start screen and the desktop toolbar on your taskbar.
Boot up the computer, hit the enter key and work in the desktop all day.
While you're at it, make a shutdown shortcut and put it on your desktop taskbar. Then you don't need Charms to shut the computer off.
