Beautiful, fast, fluid
From start to finish, we’ve reimagined Windows. It’s designed to work the way you do and keep you connected to the people, websites, and things you love most.
Smooth and intuitive, the beautiful new Start screen gives you instant access to the things you care most about. Organize and customize it the way you want.
Built on the rock-solid foundation of Windows 7 and even more secure with safer browsing, account protection, and parental controls. Your Windows 8 PC starts up quickly and apps run faster.
Windows 8 PCs and tablets are designed to use less power and have longer battery life. More time to do what you want, wherever you are. Less time searching for an outlet.
Your Windows, everywhere
Settings and apps come with you. Sign in to any of your Windows 8 PCs or tablets and instantly see your settings and get your apps. Buy them once, and use your apps on up to 5 PCs or tablets.
Be instantly on and up-to-date with connected standby. Your mail and apps stay in sync and are ready when you are. Store your stuff on SkyDrive and access your mail, files, photos, videos, and more.
Work hard, play hard
Flexible for your needs
With Windows 8, you have the convenience and portability of a tablet with the productivity of a PC.
Multi-task with snap
Chat with a friend while scoping out the map for a dinner spot, or watch a video while working. Snap two apps side-by-side and multi-task.
Personal and fun
Pin the people, sites, and things that matter most right on your Start screen, so you can stay in touch at a glance. Trace a pattern over a favorite photo to sign in, and say good-bye to remembering all those pesky passwords.
