Microsoft has officially launched their brand new operating system, Windows 8. You may be wondering what is new and what is so great about this big launch? Microsoft has totally redone their ‘Start Menu’ in the newest edition of Windows. Now, instead of having a little pop-up menu at the bottom left corner of your desktop, your Start Menu has become a full screen with blocks that correspond with people, apps, photos, file folder, websites, and more.
Windows 8 is also compatible with your standard PC, as well as with touch screen devices.
Even more exciting with the new release, Microsoft has now launched its own App Store that comes with Windows 8.
Open the Store right from your Start screen to browse and download apps for cooking, photos, sports, news, and a lot more—many of them are even free!
