Synopsis:

Windows 8 is more than just a new Windows edition. It represents the biggest change in how the world's most popular operating system works since the changeover from Windows 3.1 to Windows 95 seventeen years ago. Because Windows 8 is really two operating systems in one (the easy-to-use tiled Metro interface for common tasks, designed to bring touch-friendly tablet interfacing to PCs, and a classic Windows desktop for more complex tasks) Windows 8 users will need more help than with previous Windows versions. Easy Microsoft Windows 8 is designed for PC and tablet users who will be using Windows 8. Both home and business users will benefit from this book because it helps both categories become comfortable with how Windows 8 works and how to use it to perform the tasks they need to perform on it. Easy Microsoft Windows 8 helps you learn the new tile-based Metro UI interface in Windows 8 as well as the "behind the scenes" settings and features that use the traditional Windows desktop. No matter how you prefer to use Windows 8 (PC or tablet, touchpad or touchscreen, mouse or keyboard), this book gives you the step-by-step, task-oriented instructions Easy books are famous for.
