Chapter 6. More Windows Techniques You Should Know

I introduced you to many of the Windows 8 apps in Chapter 5, “Learning Windows Basics,” but your tour of Windows 8 isn’t over, not by a long shot. This chapter continues your Windows 8 education by showing you a few useful and practical tools and techniques that will help you get more out of your PC investment. For example, I show you a few ways to customize Windows 8 to suit your own personal style. You also learn how to search for things in Windows 8 and how to work with files and folders. Later in the chapter, you learn a few highly useful techniques for overcoming visual, hearing, and physical limitations. This chapter is a veritable Windows smorgasbord!
