The Start screen is the default screen that shows ups when you turn your computer on. Most of the programs and applications installed on your computer will appear there. However, some programs and applications such as Paint, appear on the App screen. You can, however, move those to the start screen by right clicking them > Pin to Start. Finding the App screen is easy: Right-click a blank area in the Start screen > All apps icon at the lower right.

The Toshiba user's guide and support app on windows 8 start screen is not working. it says critical error


Windows 8 sucks. Have had so many issues with it myself. Sounds like the load may be corrupted, the easy is call Toshiba tech support, the hard is reformat the hardrive and reload windows but I would suggest Windows 7 over 8 any day.

Have there been any changes to the Start Screen in the new Windows Phone 8 version?


Yes - Microsoft have actually made quite a lot of noticeable changes to the start screen in the new WP8, such as;

- They've kept the live tiles but they now have support for 3 sizes which lets you customize your screen much more.

- You can choose from a pallet of 20 colors to customize your screen.

- There is now multiple screen sizes and a range of resolutions to choose from.

- You can change your lockscreen background and even choose which apps you want to be on the background.
