Using the Start Screen
Depending on what you are searching for you may need to change the search
scope. Unlike in Windows 7 and Vista, in Windows 8 Microsoft separated the
application search from the settings or control panel search. If you are looking
for a Windows setting, such as display settings, you need to click the Settings
option on the right side of the screen, as shown in Figure 3-2, after you type in
what you want.

Start Screen Views
In addition to the default, two other Start screen views are available, but they
require some work to display. The first is a list of all applications installed on
your PC. This view is similar to clicking All Programs in previous versions of
Windows, but provides a full-screen display, as shown in Figure 3-3.
