    They have stripped almost everything out of the Taskbar Manager.

    There is no longer a link to the Startup directory to enable / disable programs from running at startup.

    I haven't been able to find a link to it anywhere yet.

    Went to Control Panel and don't find a link there.

    They seem to have removed ALL ability to organize / work with your Startup programs.

    NOT A HAPPY CAMPER RIGHT NOW.


    oops, nevermind. once I had an app running I saw an option at the bottom of the window and clicking that brought up the old Task manager. Still not happy the way they hid this.

    Some of my USB ports no longer operate also but I believe that is a problem for the motherboard maker ( ASUS ).
