We’ve talked about some of the new features you’ll find in Windows 8, but if you’re a bit more curious about how it works in real life, we’ve put together a short video demo of what you’ll find in Microsoft’s latest operating system.
This is just a short demonstration of how Windows 8 works: buying apps, switching between the Metro and regular desktop and more. We still don’t love the Metro start screen; it’s just awkward on the desktop — especially the scrolling — but other things at least make it worthwhile, like right-clicking on an app to uninstall it (finally!). When it comes to the traditional desktop, most of the changes are improvements — from Windows Explorer to the new Task manager and more. Check out the video above to see it in action, and if you want to try it out for yourself, you can download the Consumer Preview now.
