A lot of tools are now very difficult to find. I can’t find the event viewer.
On the Metro screen go to settings, Tiles and enable the Show administrative tools option. You could also set your search to the settings category and type the word event. ( it shows up for me as soon as I get ev entered ). Pinning things to Start really helps to, like "Run" for example.
uninstalling things is actually quite a pain because now you have to first go to control panel and then the add/remove programs
Actually all you have to do on the metro screen is right click the app. A new bar pops at the bottom and Uninstall is an easy mouse click away. Quite handy actually. Also note the option to see All Apps on that bar..
Nothing comes up if you type reged but if you type out the entire word, regedit, it will show up.
same behavior for me on Win 7 as others have said as well. You must have something tuned/remembered on your system.
For me, overall it is just a matter of getting used to doing things a different way. I won't be spending an over abundance of time on it though until I see if it is going to last.
Not a big fan of metro but I'm sure there will be things that come along to enhance that a bit.
