What's new in Windows 8.1 ?
Start Button: Windows 8 replaced the traditional Start menu with the Start screen and removed the Start buttonfrom the Desktop. Windows 8.1 adds the Start button back to the Desktop. Clicking the Start button on the Desktop will launch the Start screen, which you'll use to open programs and search for files.

Boot to Desktop: Rather than launching the Start screen when you turn on your device, Windows 8.1 now gives you the option to boot directly to the Desktop, much like older versions of Windows. This is especially helpful if you're not interested in using the Start screen very often.

nap Start Screen Apps: Windows 8 introduced full-screen apps for the Start screen, but it did not allow you to view more than two apps at once. Windows 8.1 allows you to view several different Start screen apps and snap them to different parts of the screen. Traditional desktop apps still work the way they did in earlier versions of Windows: They'll appear in individual windows that you can move and re-size.

What are some productivity apps for windows 8?

Skype Wi-Fi:

For those road warriors out there, being connected is critical. Our tablet devices allow us to never be far from the next email, and most travelers have gotten pretty good at reviewing that 48-page document on a 4" screen. However, Skype Wi-Fi provides a solution where, for a little bit in Skype "credit", we can access millions of hotspots around the world from the full size comfort of our full size laptops / tablets without the need for tethering and using expensive cellular data plans.

Office 365:

For many business users, Microsoft Office has become one of the critical business tools used for every day operations. Office 365 continues that trend with an update to one of its most popular products after Windows. Office 365 takes a familiar interface and integrates OneDrive for portability between devices, and unlike Google Docs, the ability to go completely offline. Office 365, however, does not take full advantage of the updated 8.1 interfaces, choosing to use the "desktop" mode instead. After all, in an application suite that relies on a mouse and keyboard, the touch screen option isn't really the best choice.

PDF Touch &Drawboard PDF (Paid):

One of the most popular forms of exchanging large documents in the business world is still the PDF format. The PDF format preserves formatting and images allowing the provider to ensure a consistent experience. However, as recipients we often had to keep notes in a separate document or even, gasp -- print the document to make notes on it! PDF Touch and Drawboard PDF allow the document to be marked-up keeping your thoughts with the original document. PDF Touch is a down to earth markup application while Drawboard PDF is a bit more extensive in the features offered for a slightly higher price.

YouSendIt (Free):

Transferring large files has become a lot easier with the introduction of Google Drive and Dropbox. While those services are valuable, they are lacking in several key features such as extended security and most important, tracking features. With YouSendIt, you can get status on when the recipient received the link and when they downloaded the file. Think of YouSendIt as the electronic version of certified mail. In addition, YouSendIt has secure delivery, data encryption and integration with Microsoft Outlook.

Rainbow Drive (Free):

With so many cloud storage options available, the likelihood that you will only use one is getting more remote. Even if you use a single provider, you might have several accounts with that same provider. Switching between accounts has never been as smooth as we would like, however Rainbow Drive allows you to have access to your cloud drives without that troublesome task. Rainbow Drive is simple to setup and supports all Google Drive, SkyDrive, DropBox and BaiduYun for free, with categorization and link sharing features.

What is a Microsoft account?
A Microsoft account is an email address and password that you can use to sign in to your WinTAB. When you sign in with a Microsoft account, your WinTAB is connected to the cloud, and the settings, preferences, and apps associated with your account "follow" you to any other Windows 8 or later PC. A Microsoft account makes it easy to purchase apps, music, videos, and games for your WinTAB. Another benefit of using a Microsoft account to sign in is that if you ever forget your password, you can reset it online.
Why do I need a Microsoft account for using my WinTAB?
Microsoft Windows 8.1 is an advanced operating system that uses many online features to offer you the best user experience. The services of Microsoft include:
