How do I launch Word? How do I launch any other install app?
I guess you have missed my point.
Boy did I ever miss your point. You said "how do I launch Word" from

If you are on the desktop, how do you get to the All Apps screen?
There are zero visual clues
But it's so easy to learn. And once learned its easily remembered. Why
clutter the screen with visual clues that are no longer needed after
the learning curve is completed?
