Windows 8 Tips Guide

Maximum PC: 12 Windows 8 Starter Tips and Tweaks
Alright, Windows 8 fans. You’ve taken our advice and speed-ran your way through a clean installation (or upgrade!) of Microsoft’s latest OS. You’ve created or attached an existing Windows Live account to your installation, you’ve taken care of the few prompts Microsoft’s asked you to fill out or click through, and you’ve even given a cursory glance to the company’s brief “How to use Windows 8” video during the installation process.

You’re staring at the Start Screen.

Now what do you do?

Before you get confused, scared, or start clicking mindlessly through your desktop in an effort to figure out how to shut down your PC, stay cool for a moment. We have a swath of little tips that will help you ease into Microsoft's new operating system from Windows 7. With our helpful Windows 8 Tips Guide, you’ll be a Windows 8 master faster than you can say, “SmartGlass.”

Let’s begin. (Dev, Next-Gen, PC, Tech, Windows 8)
