I am a big addict of Windows 8 so much that I forgot using Windows 7 and had been religiously following the different releases ever since the 1st Developer Preview of the latest OS. I like the Metro Menu, the new Settings bar, the New Charms bar and what not? But wait! Where is My Computer? The Heck with it? Where did it go from Desktop? The traditional view of Microsoft regarding Windows had been dramatically changed ever since Windows 8 was introduced. I tried to create Shortcuts to Computer but it really was a nerve wracking experience for me to do so!
I wasn’t really astonished about the absence of Computer icon. What made me frustrated was that there was JUST no way out to create the shortcut if I wanted it. The new Metro Menu does not have Computer too. So I searched for Computer using the Windows Search Function.
