4 Top best features in Window 8

Top 4 Best Feature window 8

There are two parts in Windows 8 — the desktop, which looks like Windows 7, and the all-new, all-singing, all-dancing Start page, which is a complete departure for the operating system.
If you've just upgraded, it may take you some time to discover all of the tools hidden away in the "Every part of a place" of Windows 8, so here are the top 4 Hard and Fantastic features you should be aware of.

Following the release of Windows 8 Developer Preview, many sites have done reviews on what the next Windows system will be like. The reviews are mostly positive, with some hailing Windows 8 as the next revolution in the technology of computer operating systems (OS)

1. Speedy Boot Time

The load and boot up speed has improved significantly over Windows’ predecessors. This is partly due to the better resource allocations to applications and the system. When compared to Windows 7 desktop CPU, Windows 8 has an even speedier boot time.

How did they improve so much over Windows 7? Well, Windows 8 employs a technique of hibernating the system kernel (think of it as your OS’s resource manager) when you shut down, such that it becomes almost like a partial hibernation each time. When you reboot the system, the ‘memory’ of your previous session gets reinitialized quicker.

2. Sync your settings

Windows 8 supports the old user account system, but it can also create a new kind of user account that's linked to your Windows ID, and pulls in information from SkyDrive, Xbox, Hotmail/Outlook and all the other cloud services the company is pushing.

3. Windows Defender

You'll notice that it makes an appearance in Windows 8 if you don't already have antivirus and anti-spyware tools in place, leaping into action to plug whichever security gaps need filling.

There's no need to dig out discs or serial codes, because everything you need is already available, hidden away on the hard drive.
