With Windows 7 and previous Windows versions, Microsoft provided a monolithic installation application called Windows Setup that was custom-tailored for managed businesses and PC makers but could also be used, in manual form, by end users. This same Setup application came with both the Full and Upgrade versions of Windows and provided a consistent interface between the two.. If you’re using an older or nonstandard keyboard that doesn’t have a Windows key, try Ctrl + Esc instead.. In Windows 8, Microsoft has added support for two very popular disc (and disk) image formats, ISO and VHD, allowing users to browse within these special files as if they were physical discs (or disks) connected to the PC..

Mail is a modern and fairly efficient e-mail solution, but as a mobile app it’s missing a few typical features one might be expecting. Key among these, perhaps, is the ability to drag and drop, such as you might do to move messages from one folder to another: This capability simply doesn’t exist in Mail, and if you’re used to managing mail in, say, Windows Live Mail, Outlook, or even web-based solutions like Hotmail or Office 365, it takes some getting used to.

One alternative style of naming we’ve seen used, in which Metro is called “the Windows 8 UI,” and Metro-style apps are referred to as “Windows 8 apps,” is, to us, inadequate. Windows 8 provides two user experiences, what we call Metro and the desktop. And both are “Windows 8 UIs” that contains “Windows 8 apps.” So we’re sticking with the Metro name, which has been in use for a couple of years now and which we feel perfectly encapsulates the new environment and the apps that run within it.
