Microsoft is offering useful Windows 8.1 tips, tricks and how-to content via a new blog-post series

MicrosoftMicrosoft execs have kicked off a month-long blog-post series designed to help business users figure out Windows 8.1.

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.
