    Press Windows +R on keyboard. Type "calc" without the ""'s. Press enter.

    of course it has a calculator, otherwise how Steve Ballmer would tell and demonstrate to the media how many Windows 8 licenses were sold, how many copies were activated, workout why there is a huge discrepancy between paid licenses and activated copies. :)
    Also he would need a calculator to workout how much his shares are worth today.... :D :D

    oh wait maybe that is why there is no calculator.... :smartass:

    I like the calc in Win8. I think its been upgraded, or I simply never seen Win7's calc? Programer, statistics, digit grouping, unit conversion, date calculation, worksheets? where all that come from haha.

    I only remember scientific and standard o_O
