          Hi Stacie, the users profile in those technical category hubs is located at the very top of the hubs without a profile image to lead back to the source. It only has a link of the profile name there, directly under the Hub title.

      Ok I went back and now the pink flower image was gone and I listened to the video.It was good hub and I left a comment. I noticed the vote up and other remarks were missing.
      I don't think I like the new layout.

      Oh no! A Pinterest-style operating system!

      Unfortunately, I am tied to Windows because of the software I need to use for my translating work.

      I am not going to be happy when I am forced to change to this.

        Its actually a cool change thus far for me, I been using Win 8 for almost a month, and besides a few minor glitched its been good to me thus far.

        Not sure I'll give it a look, but it sounds like Microsoft office 2012 that should be coming out if anything, Microsoft office 2010 has already come out a while back. Hope this help a bit till I find more accurate info for ya.

      Did they fix the mess where Word documents aren't compatible with older versions?  Maybe that's in Office.  All I know is they lost my vote with Vista, and the annoying pop-ups, and the fact you have to convert docs to the older Word version half the time, and, well, on and on.  I'm now on an iMac & I love it.

        That's Office. I quit the Microsoft game as well but I favor Linux.

        If memory serves me, I think you can change the default in Word to save files as a .doc extension, rather than a docx.

        I think you go to the Office button in the upper left. Click "Word Options." Click on the "Save" listing and change "Save files in this format:" to "Word 97-2003 Document (*.doc).

      Thanks for that tip, Tim!  I'll check that out - I'm still getting messages now and then from people who can't read documents.  It will make it easier if I can prevent the problems on my end.  I hear really good things about Linux, by the way.  I just don't know anything about how it works!

      I think they shouldn't have given Metro UI with non-touch devices. Metro UI works perfect with touchscreens but on regular Keyboard mouse based system it is difficult to use. They must give the option to disable Metro Ui.
