You may have heard the Windows 8 Consumer Preview was launched last week, along with a new set of capabilities like customisable live tiles, roaming profiles and preferences. If you’ve not yet downloaded it and had a play around then this demo from Jensen Harris, Director of Program Management for Windows User Experience gives a good overview of some of the key features and might just persuade you to take a look for yourself… for example:
- swiping down from the top of an app closes the app
- in IE10, swiping backwards takes you back page by page (rather than swiping between apps)
- with a mouse clicking in the top left rotates you through running apps
It’s well worth 8 minutes of your time.
