“Why learn different skills for each computing device you own? With Windows 8 on your PC, laptop, and tablet you avoid the confusion of moving from one GUI to another across your computing devices. Now you can sign in to each device with a Microsoft account, synchronize all your music, videos, photos, email, accounts, and other files wherever you go. The new Start Screen is the heart of the new Windows 8 GUI, and it consists of a mosaic of live tiles for launching apps. Live tiles also display active content, such as news feeds, weather, social networking alerts, and how many new email messages are waiting for you. Windows 8 has improved features for sharing and managing files, securing your computing devices, networking, and enjoying your music, video and photo collections. Start enjoying Windows 8 now!” Author, Jane Holcombe
