3 questions

Three questions please

1) I used my login details on mum's laptop to access the store. The apps I selected to download are stuck at pending, is this why? If not why are they not installing?

2) I want to remove the password and username prompt on my PC to login. Any ideas how I do this?

3) Is it possible to make the interface look more like Windows 7 ie the Start icon?

Any help or advice would be appreciated!

1] they often stick at pending leave alone and it will install

2] press windows key + R at same time, then in runbox enter netplwiz and press apply, highlight user name and untick the apply password box, then enter the password then ok. this will auto enter the password.

3]best option withut 3rd party software.there is no start menu, but w8 can run it here from the task bar saving the use of 3rd party software.
