Getting Started: Your Guide to Windows 8

“Getting Started: Your Guide to Windows 8” teaches you how to get the most out of Windows 8. It doesn’t matter if you’re already using Windows 8 or merely wondering whether you should; this manual breaks down the features in a way anyone can understand.


Back in 1991, Microsoft released their first version of Windows, a mouse-driven graphical user interface that revolutionised the way we use computers, both at home and in the workplace.
Now, in 2012, they hope to stage a new revolution with Windows 8, perhaps Microsoft’s most daring release yet. Featuring an unusual tile-based Start screen that’s optimized for touchscreen devices, Windows 8 will be available on new computers, laptops and ultrabooks, hybrid tablets and even a new range of Microsoft-branded, iPad-style tablets called Microsoft Surface.
