If you’re having trouble adjusting to the new windows OS, you’re not alone. People seem to be struggling with the new app based functionality. Don’t get frustrated, take your time and once you get to know it you’ll find that it’s very easy to use. With Microsoft releasing an update, version 8.1, they have made the transition easier to handle. Here are a few ways to help you along the way.
MAKE IT PERSONAL
When you first boot up Windows 8.1, you won’t notice a huge difference between the latest update and Windows 8. You still get the tile-based Start screen, but it’s a lot more customization based than the previous version.
RETURN OF THE START BUTTON
One of the more welcome features is the return of the Start button.
When you switch to desktop mode, you’ll find it in the bottom-left-hand corner, but it doesn’t function in exactly the same way as before. Tapping or clicking will simply return you to the modern tile-based Start screen, rather than launching the traditional Start menu.
CHANGING DEFAULT APPS
Naturally, Microsoft would love for you to use its native apps (Internet Explorer, Xbox Music, and so forth) for all your tasks, but if you have a preference for a certain Web browser, email client or mapping app, Windows 8.1 will allow you to set them as your default.
