Windows 8 ,the touch pad,usb mouse and seniors

By volenteer57 ·
I volunteer at the senior center in my town to help seniors learn to use thier new computers and to accquaint them with first time use of computers. Windows 8 is definately not user friendly for us older users. Complicated movements are very hard to explain to first time users, compounded with the problems that a usb mouse doesn't work properly on windows 8. I wish that I could disable all that temporarily so I could ease them into this nightmare windows 8 using the older mouse system.Even as an experienced user I am having a hard time getting a grip on usage of the touch pad or mouse. I hope Microsoft is listening and in thier 8.1 release gives me a chance to suspend the new mouse or at least some of the more complicated actions in order to continue to teach the usage of computers. Any additional comments or help will be greatly appreciated.
