Windows 8 Tech Guide


Understanding Windows 8

Windows 8 has been re-imagined to focus on your life. It’s designed to work the way you do, and it keeps you connected to the people, websites, and things you love most. It comes with a new user interface replete with touch gestures, much improved cloud-connected services, a renewed focus on apps, new security features, and a whole lot more. Better yet, it’s designed to work beautifully not just on large and powerful desktop PCs, but on lightweight laptops, and compact, touch-enabled tablets too.

All that said, the first thing that will catch new users (okay, long-time users too) by surprise is the new Modern-style user interface. So to kickoff this Windows 8 Mega Guide, we first take a quick look at the new UI, including the new lock screen and tile-based Start screen, and show you some of the important basics of navigation.

Of course, the new UI is just the tip of the iceberg. Windows 8 is also filled to the brim with new apps and features, for both consumers and business users alike. So hit the links on the right to find out in greater detail about the new OS, starting from the installation process and various upgrade paths, to the various core apps and business-related features.

Also don't forget that we've got a dedicated Windows 8 forum discussion group to find out the experiences from different users and to tackle any advanced queries.
