With the release of Windows 8 Consumer Preview the interest and exploration has really gotten underway. Be aware that this release is a “preview” or “beta” version and most of the Metro style apps provide just hints of what is coming.
Enthusiasts have been exploring the nooks and crannies and sharing their discoveries.
I too, have been exploring and sharing here with more to come.
Here are some blog posts with interesting and useful information that I found particularly interesting.
The basics of the Metro interface: Settings, searching, keyboard shortcuts and more.
Some neat suggestions on customizing the Start screen and more. Even how to make a shutdown desktop shortcut.
There are, of course, many others and much, much more to come.
If you have not yet started to explore Windows 8 Consumer Preview, you may want to visit the Microsoft Windows 8 Consumer Preview page. You can find download links there so you too can join the fun.
Observant readers will have noticed the addition of Windows 8 to the This ‘n That menu bar above. This gets you to the Windows 8 posts the easy way.
