Here are some of the new features of Windows 8.
Microsoft launched Windows 8 recently, and we did a series of tutorials on Windows 8. We wanted to take a moment to cover new features that have been introduced in Windows 8, so that you can decide if you want to download Windows 8.
As you might be familiar by now, the new look of the Windows 8 is inspired by the Windows Phone Metro User Interface, but that is not the only new feature in Windows 8. It is bundled with a plethora of new features. In this article I will try to present the crux of all the significant innovative features of Windows 8.
New Features of Windows 8
The first thing that you would see (or you would not see till you hover your mouse to the bottom left corner) is the Start Orb button. It is different from the start button of previous versions of Windows in a number of ways. When you hover your mouse over it, it will show a tile displaying the date and time. The pop up menu that appears shows the search, share, devices and settings option.
When you click any of these (eg. settings), it appears on the right side (as a sidebar) with its various options like power, notifications etc.
Of course, the most talked about feature of Windows 8 is Metro UI. Check out the article I linked to earlier, to know more details about that.
The faster boot time is another welcome feature from Microsoft. In my machine with 4GB of RAM, it takes just 7 seconds to reboot the system.
Windows 8 Explorer has been considerably overhauled. If you remember the Ribbon appearance of Toolbars in MS Office 2010, you will see that Microsoft has revamped the Windows Explorer with the same thing.
Wallpapers and Taskbar in Windows 8 can be extended to multiple monitors. Yes you got it right. This feature is finally incorporated into Windows.
Windows 8 Task Manager is completely revamped with two type of looks. One is simple look that displays only the currently running applications. The other look appears when you click the extended button and it presents a lot of options and features.
Microsoft has added Windows Live integration feature that allows to synchronize all your setting and files across multiple computers.
What I presented in this article was just the tip of the iceberg. I will come up with more innovative features in upcoming articles. Stay tuned.
