Windows 8 In Depth is the comprehensive guide to Microsoft's Windows 8 for everyone who is no longer a Windows beginner: corporate, small office/home office, and personal users alike. This 1200 page book is packed with intensely useful and practical information that can't be found elsewhere. Readers need not be hardcore geeks or IT people, but we assume that readers have been using Windows and are comfortable with it. This book starts with the basics, but quickly ramps into more in depth topics, such as networking, security, customizing, and so on. In Windows 8, Microsoft introduces a brand-new user interface called 'Metro'. Key changes brought about with Metro include the removal of the Start Menu, which was replaced with a new Start screen, that uses tiles similar to those used on the Windows Phone. Tiles contain shortcuts to applications, Metro style applications, and more. Even experienced Windows users will need the expert advice in this book in order to get the most out of Windows 8.
