What’s new in Windows 8.1?

Windows 7 and Windows 8 instructor Steve Fullmer shows us what is new in the latest release of Microsoft’s Windows 8.1.

Windows version 8.1 was released in October 2013 and is now replacing Windows 8 in OEM deployments. 8.1 is a free update for those who are currently running Windows 8.
Here’s a quick update on what’s new and different between Windows 8 and 8.1.
Microsoft categorizes the Updates into Four Categories.

  • The User Interface
  • Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)
  • Mobility Enhancements
  • Security Enhancements

In this video, Steve breaks down the categories in a different way and demonstrates each of them individually including Navigation Options, Corporate Features, Enhanced Drivers, Updated Apps and Cross-Platform Tools

  • Start Screen
  • Start Button
  • Snap Views
  • Mouse and Keyboard
  • Boot to Desktop

Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)
