In the new Microsoft Windows 8 operating system you will not find the familiar Start button, and therefore can’t get access my computer easily. While it can only be reached through the wire, and then you will have to make a few extra body movements and climb up the directories.
To get your favorite My Computer shortcut on the desktop, as well as other icons, just right-click on the desktop and select Personalize (Personalization). In the window that opens, find the link - Change Desktop icons (Change desktop icons.) Now set the check mark next to those labels that you want to see on the desktop, confirm with OK .
