My first workday with Windows 8

  • March 1, 2012

Yesterday evening I installed the Windows 8 Customer Preview on my work laptop (EliteBook 8740w i7-620M, 8GB Ram and 2x 500GB HDD). With a small hart I went to work and hoped that everything would work fine. Her is wat I found.

At first I plugged in the network cable and I Couldn’t get connection. The only way I could get connection was by removing the network card in the device manager and reïnstalling it. For the rest of the day I had no special errors. Underneed are some of the applications I used within Windows 8:

  • Remote Desktop app (big fan)

  • Windows 8 pause copy

  • Evernote App
  • Snipping tool
    The snipping tool is still the same, one small disadvantage is you cant’ create snippings from the start screen.
  • Task Manager

  • Hyper-V
