Switching Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 to the classic desktop is easy, but something is missing. It is the My Computer icon from the previous versions of Windows.

Here is how to get the Computer icon on a Windows 8 desktop:

  • Right-click on the classic Desktop.
  • Select Personalize from the context menu.
  • Click on Change desktop icons on the left side.
  • Select the Computer check box and click OK.
  • Close all other dialog boxes you have opened.

You are done.

NOTE: The Computer icon is now called This PC.
