Windows 8 Consumer Preview Demo In 8 minutes [Video]



Windows 8 is one of the most awaited technologies of the year. With the iPad blooming in the world, Microsoft has come out with an OS that caters to all segments tablet users, Desktop users and even enterprise users with Windows 8. When Microsoft released the consumer preview last month, we covered a detailed post of what’s new.


But you can find out tons of cool things with self exploration completed, now maybe a good time to get a thorough demo and spot the things you’ve missed so far. There is plenty in this demo from Jensen Harris, Director of Program Management for Windows User Experience. For example

  • swiping down from the top of an app in Metro style apps closes the app

  • in the Metro style version of IE10, swiping backwards takes you back page by page (rather than swiping between apps)

  • with a mouse clicking in the top left rotates you through running apps

It’s well worth 8 minutes of your time.
