re: PC Market Bleeds: Windows 8 Tablet Fix Needed
OK, I got my first look at the Windows Tablet today, because my Supervisor just got one. My first impression was...Pretty Cool! My second impression....it needs work!
The basic utilities for setting up printers is buried undernieth about 4 levels and we did not have a clue how to get to a simple "Add a printer" There may be other ways, but we could not find them?? Shezzzzz! Come on!
The interface can be cusomized with your own ICONS as shortcuts which is nice, but that is another learning curve. For the Price, this Windows 8 Tablet should be easy to use.
Simple problem. Make the touch interface simple. The help was not helpful, or at least not what I would have expected. We eventually got to what we needed , but not with out hunting around for it. It took 10 times as long to get to the place to install TCPIP Printers than it did to set it up! Not good.
Right out of the box, this tablet should have all the basic things needed to get on your LAN, set up printers, set up email, and so on. This thing needs to be friendly, not just Cool!
The Windows Tablet has potiential, and I do like it. If I get one, I will customize the heck out of the desktop...if you can call it that, to make my life easy. The average Joe....is going to say Huh? What do I do now?
