Happy New Year. My old computer's HD crashed badly. Needed a new laptop. It came with Windows 8. I never use the metro app. It is disgusting and wasteful and a real hassle to circumnavigate. How do I eliminate this app from Windows 8? I'm serious. Thanks.

You can't eliminate it. However, you can download and install Classic Shell from
http://classicshell.sourceforge.net/ which will bring back the Start button on the Desktop and focus more on the desktop.
