Corrine Posted March 9, 2012 Share Posted March 9, 2012 One dramatic change Microsoft has introduced in Windows 8 is the Metro style user interface, a reimagining user experience of Windows. The new Metro user interface has been carefully designed and built and therefore very intuitive to new and experienced Windows users. However, the change also requires users, myself included, to learn or re-learn new ways of working with applications and the Windows environment in general, from some basic tasks of turning your PC or tablets or slates off to resetting your device to default settings without losing apps and user data and settings. To help users quickly ramp up their experience of working with Windows 8 and find shortcuts of getting things done, I will start this “Windows 8 Consumer Preview Power User How To Series” or “Win8 HowTo“ for short or Twitter hash tag “#Win8HowTo”.
