The new series is entitled “Windows 8.1 for Business (or Why You’re Wrong About Windows 8.1).”
The series isn’t meant to provide “news,” but rather more help- and how-to content. The first few posts have been solid and contain some good, basic information aimed at business users who may want and need a little extra handholding with Microsoft’s latest OS.
(It would have been great to have seen more content like this when Windows 8 first debuted, but better late than never….)
On March 4, Softie Matt Hester wrote a post for those fearing the loss of their trusty Start Menus, which Microsoft removed with Windows 8. On March 5, Jennelle Crothers provided help for those confused by Microsoft’s split-personality Metro-Style and Desktop environments. And On March 6, Keith Mayer provided some tips and tricks for those stymied when trying to use Windows 8.1 on non-touch-screen devices.
Future posts will touch on virtualization using client Hyper-V, BitLocker and Group Policy.
Microsoft is aiming to make life easier for those of us who prefer interacting with our PCs and devices with mice with the soon-to-be-released Windows 8.1 Update 1 version of Windows. That release is expected to go to MSDN subscribers on April 2 and to those running Windows 8.1 via Windows Update on April 8.
