Windows 8 in the Business World

Windows 8 has been around for more than a year and it is becoming increasingly difficult to purchase previous versions. In businesses, change is not always welcome and in particular, forced changes to IT systems often leave users feeling confused and frustrated.

The biggest change in Windows 8 from Windows 7 and previous versions is that it dispenses with the Start Menu in favour of a more accessible “Tile Menu”. You can still access it by pressing the Windows Key and you can drag the tiles around to put your favourite ones at the top. Finding other software packages (or apps) which you've installed is pretty quick – you can do this by searching for the program with the icons on the right of your screen.

Windows 8 has a built-in upgrade path from Windows 7 – this means you can upgrade Windows 7 to Windows 8 without reinstalling your software or losing any data. This is good news if you end up with one lone Windows 7 computer and fancy an upgrade.

The neatest thing which Windows 8 provides is that it is designed for touchscreens. Indeed, while many people have been skeptical of the system (or even downright frustrated), we must remember that Microsoft have developed this software for the future rather than the present. While a missing Start Menu may seem out of place today, as we move increasingly to tablet devices, this will be a common setup.
