My version of Windows 8 did not bring up the list in the same way, but the right click on the “calculator” gave me the “file location” option. Anybody know why Windows 8 does not have a “Close Window” button on the media and PDF players? How do you close them? Thanks. Tim Witry January 25, 2015 Yeah, when I right click I get “Pin to Start” and “Uninstall”. I’ve encountered this before with Windows over the years. The directions don’t match. Someone please explain this? I’m trying to put this on the desktop so I can use the calculator while reviewing something else, not flipping between these two screens. Ideas? Robert Buchanan January 25, 2015 Great thanks a bunch . I was worried I would have to live with a 27 inch calculator LOL thanks again buddy. Blesson Jose January 25, 2015 Comments are closed.
