Windows 8 was a revolutionary update of the popular operating system from Microsoft. With a brand new interface, new ways of getting around and accessing items and new possibilities for mobile devices, Windows 8 took the computing experience to the next level. However, there were still a few areas for improvement and these have been addressed with Window 8.1. Windows 8.1 in easy steps shows you how to get up to speed with this latest version of Windows and begins by detailing how to get to grips with the Windows 8.1 interface. It deals with the basics such as accessing items, personalizing your screen and using additional controls that are available from the sides of the screen. The books includes the new features that have been added since Windows 8: the return of the Start button; options for booting up to the Desktop; viewing up to four apps on screen at the same time; an enhanced SkyDrive feature for online storage and sharing; and a unified search facility that enables you to search over your computer and the Web. A lot of the functionality of Windows 8.1 is aimed at touchscreen devices, whether they are desktop computers, laptops or tablets. This is dealt with in terms of navigating around, as well as showing how everything can still be done with a traditional mouse and keyboard. Apps are at the heart of Windows 8.1 and the newly designed Windows Store has an app for almost everything you could want to do.

“Useful in parts”

Having acquired a new PC with Windows 8.1 (and IE11 as part of that) a few months ago I thought a manual might be useful as was told the interface is quite different to Vista. In fact I've managed OK, hardly... More
