Not worth showing as each menu covers the previous one.

All exactly 4 mouse clicks (one of them a right-click in Win8) to open Calculator.
I found it with two clicks. Windows key + Q=Apps page, Calc. is right there.
Simplest way is: Win+R and then type calc.
Win+R opens the conventional "Run" dialog and you can then enter many of the late great commands. In this case, simply typing "calc" and Enter will open the Windows calculator app
buy a keyboard with a calc symbol on it and press it hehe
1. Move mouse top right and get the charms menu. Search for calc, right click on calculator item that comes up on the right and select "Pin to Start". This will add the old calc program as a tile to Metro UI.
2. Install a real app like Calculator app. It has better features, looks good and is more powerful - "goo.gl/QMJpo"
easier, click start on your keyboard, type calculator, and hit enter
