Master the basics of Microsoft Windows 8 and find out what’s new in the latest version of Windows
Our free Windows 8 tutorials will demystify the radical new operating system and help you quickly become comfortable with this version of Windows. Windows 8 is here and this version of Windows could be the most controversial yet. Fortunately our Windows 8 tutorials are here to help you. Optimised for touch computers and tablets as well as desktops, the Start Menu that Windows users have been used to since Windows 95 has gone, replaced by a new tile-based Start screen. Windows 8’s newest applications are designed to run perfectly on touch only machines, meaning working with them is significantly different to using regular Windows applications. It’s lucky that we’re still here to provide you all with tutorials to help ease you into the new operating system!
Windows 8.1 update 1 is out now! This is a major update to Windows 8 with many improvements and enhancements. Our tutorials have been updated for Windows 8.1 and we are rolling out a number of updates for Windows 8.1 update 1. Don’t know how to get Windows 8.1? Check this tutorial.
Based on feedback from our readers, we’ve changed the selection of tutorials available here to provide more help for those of us who want to use Windows 8 on a traditional desktop or laptop system with a keyboard and mouse (which is still most of us!).
