    Re: Not able to find Windows Accessories folder in windows 8

    Microsoft programmers has done well to bring all of these tools right in front of you. It means you can easily find them in the Windows 8 Metro Screen. If you want to find it manually then navigate to C: > ProgramData > Microsoft > Windows > Start Menu > Programs > Windows Accessories. If you are not a tech guy and still finding it difficult to use windows 8 then install a start Menu application. It will bring the start menu back and you would be able to find these tools by navigating to Start>>All Programs>>Windows Accessories. If you are looking for different information then post your query here again.We will feel happy to help you.
