Installing and running normal applications on Windows 8

The new style of Windows 8 has a few people flummoxed when it comes to the question “so how do I install and run a normal application like I would on Windows 7, XP, or Vista when Windows 8 has all that Metro stuff that doesn’t really make sense to me yet”

Rather than try and describe it, it’s easier to show you. So I recorded another quick screencast that shows me installing and running one of my favorite applications, EverNote.
