For those who prefer or need the ultimate in expandability, PC makers still offer traditional desktop computers, which typically come in some form of tower configuration in which the guts of the computer—or what some erroneously describe as the CPU—are separated from the display, keyboard, mouse, and other external peripherals, including speakers, microphone and web camera, external drives, and more.. • Using a dual-boot configuration. In Windows 8, the traditional Windows Setup routine doesn’t solve these issues, and it works much like that of its predecessor. But the new web-based installerdoes solve these issues, and it does so in the most obvious way possible: It integrates both the Upgrade Advisor and Windows Easy Transfer directly into Setup, making these processes not just discoverable but obvious and unavoidable.. When you boot the computer or wake it up from Sleep, you’ll be presented with the new lock screen, a full-screen Metro-style experience that is basically new to Windows 8 and visually sits on top of the sign-in screen where you select a user account and optionally provide a password.. You can also choose accessibility options from the Ease of Access button in the lower-left of the screen, or Sleep, Shut down, or Restart the PC using the button in the lower right of the screen.

Then start typing in a search term, perhaps an artist, album, or song name, and the Search experience will often supply suggestions as you type. You can see an example of this in Figure 9-36, and search results appear right in the Xbox Music app, giving you a way to dig deeper into your favorite music.. If you have more than one drive, PC Reset will ask whether you’d like to remove all files from all drives, or just from the drive on which Windows is installed.
