Gestures:Windows 8 is
known to be true gestural version of Windows. Its OS supports a simple touch gesture.
There is another feature of Semantic Zoom, which helps the user in navigating
with the help of pinch-to-zoom gesture for a great and high-level. There are
some other and useful gestures that are efficient for swiping or dragging in
from the top of the screen and dragging the application  from the top bottom to exit or close it. ·

Live Tiles
& Lock Screen:Windows 8
helps the user to feed the information of an app without even opening them. It
is especially helpful with apps like Mail, Calendar, Photos and News, for
viewing new email, upcoming events, thumbnails, images and latest headlines. If

can be turned off. Moreover,

Search:There is a
great tool in Windows 8 which helps in searching for files, apps and specific
settings just by typing. If there is an app with built-in search, then you will
also be able to search within that app from the Search Charms bar.  Let’s take an example that you want to search
for “Lunch wagons”. The Windows 8 search will be able to look through any apps
or files related to food trucks, but you can also just tap Bing to jump into
that app’s search functionality.·

great option especially when you want to sell your old PC. If you want to
remove and erase all your data from your PC, then Reset is the best feature one

files individually. By just one tap, your PC will wash away all your data.    ·

more. It makes using a new device much easier and makes borrowing a friend’s
tablet or notebook a more personal experience. Windows 8 Product Key:A lot of
users were having problems in activating Windows 8 because it requires a
