Windows 8 Features

Nov 7th, 2012 | Posted by | Filed under Indianapolis IT support

Microsoft has officially released Windows 8 to the public. At this time, Windows 7 is a proven, stable operating system and we are still recommending that over Windows 8. That being said, there are a few nice features included with Windows 8 and they are worth mentioning at this time.

One of the most important features to focus on is the security overhaul made in Windows 8. Windows Defender is a program (some people may refer to programs as apps) that is included in the operating system. It is very similar to Microsoft Security Essentials, a reliable anti-virus and anti-malware program that Microsoft developed internally. Most home users will enjoy this feature, while business may want to use a managed anti-virus program on their network.

Most businesses will need to take advantage of the features available in Windows 8 Pro. If you have a Windows 8 computer, then the upgrade process is fairly simple. More information about price and the actual process for upgrading can be found here: .

The last feature that I would like to focus on is the Search feature. With the Start menu no longer available in Windows 8, the Search tool will become very popular. Users that interact with both Mac and PC computers will now have a search tool that is prominently used in both operating systems. Search is integrated into Windows 7, to our delight, and it is now is a convenient way to launch programs and navigate Windows 8.

Windows 8 has many more features that will help businesses and home users alike. For more information on Windows 8, please see Microsoft’s website at .
