What's new

The Start screen

Everything you care about most is on the new Start screen. Tiles on the Start screen are connected to people, apps, folders, photos, or websites, and are alive with the latest info, so you're up to date at a glance.

Mouse, keyboard—and now touch

Windows 8 is perfect for PCs with only a mouse and keyboard, those with touchscreens, and those with both. Whatever kind of PC you have, you'll discover fast and fluid ways to switch between apps, move things around, and go smoothly from one place to another.

New PCs

There are amazing new PCs of all kinds, including sleek and lightweight tablets, convertibles, and laptops.

Apps from the Windows Store

Windows 8 comes with a new store for apps, the Windows Store. Open the Store right from your Start screen to browse and download apps for cooking, photos, sports, news, and a lot more—many of them free.

Millions of streaming songs

Windows 8 also includes the Xbox Music app, which gives you access to a whole world of music.

Your Windows, everywhere

Sign in with your Microsoft account to any of your PCs running Windows 8 and you'll immediately see your own background, display preferences, and settings.
