Using the Windows 8 charms

In addition to launching and working with programs, Windows 8 makes it easy for you to take care of a number of other important tasks, like finding the files and programs you need, sharing your computer with other devices, and personalizing all kinds of settings that control how your computer works. You might want to customize the look and feel of your operating system, set up additional user accounts, manage whether your settings are synchronized among all your computers, and change your privacy settings. You can take care of all these tasks in Windows 8 by using the charms.
