This jargon-free book explains Windows 8.1 features so clearly -- revealing which work well and which don't -- that it should come with Microsoft's new OS.With Windows 8, Microsoft completely reimagined the graphical user interface for its operating system, which now runs on both desktop PCs and tablets, and with its first extensive revision, Windows 8.1 brings a free update of features and fixes to all Windows 8 consumers through the Windows Store. With easier access to the traditional desktop (bypassing the tile-based Start screen), tighter integration of SkyDrive, new apps such as Movie Moments, and the return of the popular and sorely missed Start button, users who have finally gotten used to the new way to use Windows will need to learn all-new features and workflows all over again.Thankfully, Windows 8.1: The Missing Manual will be there to help. Like its predecessors, this book from New York Times columnist, bestselling author, and Missing Manuals creator David Pogue illuminates its subject with technical insight, plenty of wit, and hardnosed objectivity for beginners, veteran standalone PC users, new tablet owners, and those who know their way around a network.
