These super guides are your ticket to learning how to accomplish tasks on a personal computer, using a variety of operating systems, with emphasis on the Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 family of operating systems and personal computer hardware.
Windows 8 is the most recent operating system designed by Microsoft. It introduces a lot of new changes, so if you’re thinking of upgrading from a previous version of Windows, you should carefully look at these changes to decide whether upgrading is a good idea. There have been many different versions of Windows over the years, including Windows 8 (released in 2009) Windows Vista (2006) and Windows 8 (2001). While previous versions of Windows mainly ran on desktop and laptop computers, Windows 8 is also designed to run on tablets. Because of this, the interface has been simplified so that it will work with touchscreens. (courtesy of Wikipedia.org).
