What You’ll Find in This Book

This book takes a practical and visual approach to showing you just the tasks you need to know to put Windows 8 Consumer Preview through its paces. We’ll focus on the features you’re most likely to want to use first, and then talk about how you can work with files, media, and your home network in Windows 8. Specifically, here’s what you’ll find:

Chapter 1, “Wow, Windows 8!” gets you started with the basics of Windows 8 and gives you your first look at the Start screen. You’ll also learn how to use touch gestures, as well as the mouse and keyboard, to navigate with Windows 8.

Chapter 2, “Preparing Your Windows 8 PC,” shows you how to set up devices so that you can use them with Windows 8 Consumer Preview. You’ll also set app notifications, make sure you have Internet access, learn about managing your PC’s power, and find out how to refresh or reset your system.
