The problem is not with you. MicroSoft is changing their target to the people spending all day on their smart phones. If you just want to play around and use a touch and drag screen the new methods are superior. However, if you want to get some work done like entering 100 invoices before lunch or list 50 items on eBay, then this new stuff is awful, slow and tedious. If you have an old XP version of the op system, hang on to it as long as you can. Around here you can get a complete computer with XP software and Office for $100. Only disadvantage is that some of the new programs, especially games and videos will not work. Blue screen crashes and freezes. You can get older versions of almost all XP compatible software on eBay for very little money.
