Windows 8.1 Surprises Features

Windows 8.1 is now available for download.  It contains refinements, new apps and a number of new hidden features. The new features include the ability to boot directly to the desktop (for those who want to bypass the new apps), broadband tethering whereby your laptop can become a Wifi hotspot, share your laptop screen with a conference room projector wirelessly, tap a Windows 8.1 device on a new printer to begin printing without all of the usual setup, the return of the start menu & more.  Although the start button does not bring up the full program menu, you can configure it to launch the All Apps view.  You will need a third party program to make the start button behave exactly like the old Windows-7 start menu.  To read about 10 surprise features for companies,  click here
