Windows 8 "Consumer Preview" first impressions
Having played around with Windows 8 for about a day, I must say I really find the new system impressive. The new Metro styled start-menu actually is working pretty well for the most part, only the search capabilities is giving me a few headakes. Highlights so far:
- Windows Key + Print Screen = Screenshot dumped into user\My Documents\pictures which is pretty awesome!
- Windows detected an installation needed .net 2.0 and installed it itself! (Installation Screenshot)
- BitLocker setup has native SkyDrive support for saving the security key! (Bitlocker screenshot)
Lowlights: 1. The search capabilities of the new start-menu really ain't as "wow" as the rest.
In the next couple of weeks, ill try and put together a list of Windows 8 tricks/shortcuts and keep them updated. Page no longer exist.
