With the new Windows, you can watch movies or play games with Xbox, Skype with friends, get work done with Office, access files anywhere with OneDrive, or find your next favorite app in the Windows Store. And you can get to it all from the new Start screen, even your familiar desktop.
From the Start screen, you're just a click away from the familiar Windows desktop you know, so you can do the stuff you’ve always done.
Personalize your Start screen with your favorite news, friends, social networks, and apps. Customizable colors and backgrounds and four different sizes of tiles make your Windows as unique as you are.
