|Windows 7, only better||Behind the new look of Windows 8 is the rock-solid foundation you’ve come to expect from Windows 7. Immerse yourself in the exciting features of a new generation of PCs while enjoying the full power of Windows. In addition to the new look of the Start screen, Windows 8 incorporates the desktop that you’re familiar with. Think of the desktop as one of the many apps you can run in Windows 8. In the desktop, you’ll see all the settings, devices, and features you used in Windows 7 and you can run the desktop apps you ran in Windows 7, too.
Just like Windows 7, security and reliability features are built into Windows 8. Everything that was great about Windows 7 is even better. For example, you can sign in using a text password, or you can create a picture password using gestures on your Windows 8 touch screen.
|The new Start screen||The new Start screen has all of the information you care about in one place, such as your contacts, the weather, and the next appointment on your calendar. Windows 8 is truly yours: websites, playlists, photo albums, contacts, and your favourite apps are front and center. Because you decide how to organize and group things on the screen, viewing and interacting with content is faster than ever.
The tiles on your Start screen are brimming with content, and they change and update in real time so you can see what’s going on and stay on top of things. You can share and connect with other people in a couple of clicks, and get real-time updates about things like news, sports, and what your friends are up to. Check your schedule or get the latest weather forecast. Tiles are a quick way to see it all. Launch apps, switch between tasks, and check notifications without digging for information. It’s all right here on the Start screen. Windows 8 also incorporates the PC desktop that you’re already familiar with. In the desktop, you’ll see that the settings and features you used in Windows 7 are still there.
|Cloud-connected with your Microsoft account||Sign in to your Windows 8 device with your Microsoft account and you’re immediately connected to the people, files and settings you care about. Your PC comes to life with all the things that make Windows yours, including your Start page, themes, language preferences, browsing history and browser favourites. You can connect your favourite services to your Microsoft account, too, like Hotmail, Messenger, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and more. And you can immediately get to your photos, docs and other files, whether they’re on SkyDrive, Facebook, Flickr or other services.|
|It's all about the apps||In the Windows Store, you can search for or browse great apps, all grouped in easy-to-find categories. We highlight great apps for you and provide quick access to frequently downloaded apps. You can also see how other people have rated apps. You’ll always know what’s interesting, new and popular. You won’t have to worry about buying something you don’t want because you can try before you buy, if the app supports it. If you try an app and like it, you can buy it and continue using the full app with no interruption. You won’t waste time or lose your place|
