Introduction

I just upgraded to Windows 8 from Windows XP and encountered numerous difficulties in making decisions, figuring out what is where and how to do things in this new operating system. Windows 8 is indeed different from any previous versions of Windows. I had to Google every step of the way to find out answers. So I decided to create this website to help people who are experiencing the same difficulties now and those who will have the same difficulties in the future. My goal is to make most of the commonly sought information available in one easy to understand website. I still do not know a lot of things about Windows 8 and almost everyday I am learning a new thing. So this website will be a ever growing site. If you don't find the answer to your question here today, please check back tomorrow. May be you will see the answer to your question has appeared here in your subsequent visit. My goal is to provide as many tips about the use of the new operating system as possible using lots of screenshots and less text. Of course, the answers to everything about Windows 8 is impossible to put in one place. And please remember I am talking about only commonly sought information. Highly technical things are beyond the scope of this site. And I am not a computer professional. I have gathered here what I have myself learnt with enormous patience, perseverence, and tenacity.

Please note that in this website the help, how to's, and tips will be concerning Windows 8.1. The screenshots are all from Windows 8.1. At the time of writing this, to the best of my knowledge, all new PCs come loaded with Windows 8 and not Windows 8.1. My new PC also came loaded with Windows 8. I upgraded to Windows 8.1 for free within the first few days of having the new PC, and started concentrating on learning Windows 8.1. Since it is the latest operating system for PCs, I recommend that you do the same and stay current. If you buy a new PC running Windows 8, you can upgrade to Windows 8.1 for free by downloading the upgrade from Windows store.

PLEASE HELP ME TO HELP YOU. E-MAIL ME WHAT YOU WANT TO KNOW MOST ABOUT WINDOWS 8.1. I SHALL TRY TO INCLUDE THAT INFO IN THIS SITE. THANK YOU.
