This is a short tutorial on how to make your Mac seem like you are using Windows 8 without downloading it. I know this may seem weird, but I like Windows 8 and I like Yosemite so I decided to combine them. No download required or plug-ins. Just plain old adjusting and imagination.

Step 1: Step 1: Move All Apps to One Desktop
To do this, use Mission Control and drag them to the desktop, or close/hide all apps and open them in the new desktop.
Step 2: Step 2: Delete All Desktops Except 1 (Because You Can't Close All)
Good job, you made it through step 1. Not so hard right? Now you want to close all the desktops except 1 and Dashboard (because you aren't able to, in case you didn't know. I have tried, and all that happens is nothing).
Step 3: Step 3: Open All the Apps to Full Screen
Open all apps into full screen by clicking the green dot at the top left corner of the window. You will notice all the windows will open up in separate screens. If this happened, you are on the right track and they are not new desktops. If this did not show up, you are lost.
Step 4: Step 4: Your Almost There! Just Getting Tips and Tricks and How to Use Your Imagination
