Upgrade to Windows 8

Upgrade to Windows 8
hen it comes to moving to Microsoft’s latest operating system, most
people will do so when they buy a new desktop pc, laptop or even
tablet. Following the horror stories of upgrading under-specced
Windows xp Pcs to the much-maligned Vista, even hardened tech upgraders
have been fighting shy of upgrading their computer’s operating system. After
all, a PC can be the third biggest investment you ever make, after your house
and car, and the operating system is its blood supply. check this

But Windows 8 is different. You could make a good case for upgrading a
Windows 7 PC, at least, for two simple reasons. First, it represents the most
radical change in Microsoft PC computing since Windows 3. 0 made way
for Windows 95. And, perhaps more pertinently in this case, the system check this
requirements are just the same as they are for Windows 7. Indeed, if your system
can run Vista, it will handle Windows 8 with aplomb. And, some would argue the
upgrade may make your computing experience smoother.

Windows 8 now comes with the option

hen the ribbon interface was first introduced in Office 2007 there
were, from some quarters, howls of pain. A few years on and it’s been
introduced to Windows Explorer. Microsoft is, however, mindful that its
new operating system is designed as much for finger-friendly tablets as it is for
mainstream computers. Small icons on a ribbon don’t really lend themselves to
finger-based computing, and the ribbon is fairly tall, so that when it is visible
smaller-screened tablets might suffer from having a reduced viewing area in
Windows Explorer. check this

With those two things in mind, Microsoft has made the Explorer ribbon check this
optional. By default, it’s hidden away, but you can easily call it up when needed.
In this way Microsoft hopes to satisfy everyone. Those who don’t like the
interface don’t have to use it, but if you are a fan it’s ready to be called upon.
Calling up the ribbon in Windows Explorer is easy. When first opened, you
won’t see a ribbon. There is, however, a small downward pointing arrow in the
top right of the application window.

The history of USB

The history of USB
In computing terms, USB is an ancient technology, _ rst appearing back in
1996. _There were two speeds back then - a full rate of 12MBps and a lower
one at what today seems a snail’s pace of 1. 5MBps. What helped make it such
a_success was the fact that most of the work is done inside_the computer, check this
not_on_the attached device. This made USB, at the device end, relatively
inexpensive to produce, and that in turn helped it achieve popularity and
become a universal standard.
Fast forward to 2000 and USB 2. 0 appeared. A massive speed increase to check this
480MBps was implemented. Then in 2008, USB 3. 0 was announced, and the _ rst
compatible devices started to appear in 2009. Fully certi_ ed products didn’t
start appearing till the start o_ 2010. Slowly USB 3. 0 has started to appear
in computers, and today it’s easy to _ nd. We aren’t expecting it to be seen in
smartphones for a bit, though. Current predictions suggest we’ll see it at the
end of_this year or early in 2013.

Next up is the Start tool

Next up is the Start tool, which allows you to toggle between the Start
screen and the main Windows screen - you can do the same task by hitting
the Windows button on your keyboard.
The Devices charm gives you quick access to any peripherals that are
attached to your computer. For example, if you have a second screen attached
you can use the Devices charm to quickly configure it as a main, second,
duplicate or extended screen. check this
The final icon is the Settings charm, and this is your route into the Control
Panel and to detailed, in depth tweaking. Here you can discover basic
information about your
system status and change
the settings in Windows
Control Panel. This is also
the tool to opt for if you
need access to the Windows
Help and Support Centre.
Snap multi-tasking check this
unning more than one application at a time, so called multi-tasking,
is not new to Windows. The old Alt-Tab convention has been used to
switch between open programs in Windows for a long time, and you’ll
still find it in both the desktop and start screen versions of Windows 8. You
can also sweep a finger on to the screen from the left bezel and flick to scroll
through everything you’ve currently got open in either desktop or Start screen
views. But there’s something new in Windows 8 too, by way of snap multitasking.
