Introducing Windows 8: An Overview for IT Professionals - Final Edition

This is the final edition of “Introducing Windows 8: An Overview for IT Professionals” from Microsoft Press. Get a headstart evaluating Window 8—guided by a Windows expert who’s worked extensively with the software since the preview releases.


The Windows 8 operating system is the newest member of the Microsoft Windows family. It differs from earlier Windows releases as much for what it does not change as for what it does change. That is, the features that IT pros loved about Windows 7 are still there in Windows 8—just better. The same keyboard shortcuts, management tools, security features, and deployment options are available in Windows 8. But in many cases, Windows 8 improves them in intuitive and significant ways. Some examples are the ribbon in File Explorer and faster disk encryption when using BitLocker Drive Encryption. This book describes these enhancements plus many of the new features in Windows 8.
