What's New in Windows 8

Windows 8 Have Lot of New Features Here's Short Review of Windows 8 With Pictures

 The Home Screen is very familiar to anyone who's used Windows Phone.

 The Lock Screen
Windows 8's lock screen is pretty much what you'd expect: it's got a beautiful picture along with a few little widgets full of information, like the time, how many emails you have, and so on.

Running Apps

 Running a basic app works as you expect—you tap on its home screen icon and it goes full screen. The browser has lots of touch-based controls, like pinch to zoom and copy and paste, and you can access options like search, share, and settings through the Charms bar, which you can get by swiping from the right edge of the screen or pressing Win+C. Apps can share information one another easily, such as selected text or photos. After picking your media from one app, you'll then be able to choose which app you want to share with, and work with it from there. For example, you can share photos to Facebook, send text from a web page in an email, and so on.

 The Windows Store

The Windows Store, which is now available in the Consumer Preview, looks much like the home screen.
 The Desktop
The traditional desktop is still there, though it may be a tad different than what you're used to. First and foremost, there's no start button to speak of. Your taskbar merely shows the apps you have pinned, with your system tray on the right, as usual. You can jump back to the start screen (that is, the Metro screen) by pressing the Windows key or by moving your mouse to the bottom left corner of the screen.

A New Task Manager

ou have a very simple task manager for basic task killing, but if you're a more advanced user, you can bring up the detailed task manager filled with information on CPU and RAM usage, Metro app history, and even startup tweaking
