Microsoft Windows 8 DVD - 64 Bit - OEM overview

Features

Apps
All the Apps you want - Apps are the heart of Windows 8. You’ll be able to get up to speed quickly with a set of built-in apps for the things you do the most. Designed for your connected lifestyle, these apps integrate with the services you already use.
Built-in Apps - With Windows 8, your entire PC is cloud-connected. You’ll have new Microsoft Mail, Calendar, SkyDrive, Photos, People, and Messaging apps that are connected to services like Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter just by adding them to your Microsoft account.
Apps work together - In Windows 8, apps work together so you can share information between them and streamline your work. For example, the Photos and Mail apps are connected, so you can select a picture from an album in your Photos app and email it to one of your contacts with a single click. No more opening your mail separately and attaching the picture. You can enable apps to include content from SkyDrive, share with your contacts in the People app, and send mail to people you know.


Cloud Connected
Your Windows, everywhere - Perfect it once, have it always. Sign in to any of your devices running Windows 8 and your personalized settings and apps are right there.
Connected to your people -Your apps light up with connections to your friends and family. Info from the services you connect to Hotmail, Messenger, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and more appears right inside the Mail, Messaging, and People apps.
Connected to your files - You use multiple PCs and a phone. Now you can connect across these devices to SkyDrive, Facebook, Flickr, and other services, so you can smoothly get to all your photos and files.


Longer Life
Great experience across many different devices - Because Windows 8 can run on low-power CPUs, you can work much longer on a single charge. That means you can stay connected so your PC is ready when you are. Battery life is longer and connections are stronger so you’ll be able to find a device to suit you for work or play. Lower power requirements are also helped by the growing number of energy-efficient devices that are designed to work with Windows 8.
Share between devices - Tap and Do works on mobile devices equipped with Near Field Communications (NFC) so you can tap two devices together and share information. Tap and Setup is another feature available with Windows 8 that lets you easily connect wireless devices, like keyboards, mice, headphones, and speakers by simply tapping them against your PC. No more PINs or complicated setup steps!


The Start Menu
Make it yours - Make your Start screen your personalised home for the things you care about. Organise and customise it the way you want.


IE10: A New Browser for a New Windows
Fast and fluid - Built for speed, Internet Explorer 10 brings you a faster web. Whether you're loading sites, sharing sites, or going from sites to apps, it all runs at a speed comparable to apps on your PC.
Intuitive - Browse with ease. There when you need them, tabs and navigation controls appear at the swipe of a finger. Share sites with friends—just swipe and tap. And pin sites to Start for one–click access.
A more trusted Web - More security, more privacy, more peace of mind: Building on innovations like SmartScreen and Tracking Protection, Internet Explorer is designed to work with the security platform of Windows to give you greater control over your personal info and help keep you safe from the latest online threats.
