I hated Windows 8 but once you spend a bit of time on it you can easily work your way around it .But , a good work around is to use classicshell . This little bit of software will turn W8 into something similar to XP or Windows7 .You get your start menu back ,so you can easily get to the control panel as well as other things . It's free too .

Probably be best if you tell us what you want?

I'm assuming you are not competent with pc's/tablets/os - not trying to be derogatory but the more honest you are the more "we" can hopefully help you

I am good, but I don't know how to make my pc look better. I try to install apps that look good but are poor in performance, I need some recommendations.

Is it safe to assume you've already updated to Windows 8.1?
