Overview/Description
In Microsoft Windows 8.1, you can view the desktop and apps on the same screen. You can get new apps from the Windows Store, and adjust which apps may provide notifications. The process for uninstalling apps and desktop programs is similar, and both can be done from the Start screen and All Apps screen. Windows 8.1 provides two versions of Internet Explorer – the new user interface (UI) version, and the desktop version. The new UI version has more settings for customization than the previous version in Windows 8. By signing in to your computer with a Microsoft account, you can apply the same settings to multiple Windows 8.1 devices. Some apps offer account integration, which lets you view multiple accounts in apps, without having to sign in each time. This course demonstrates arranging apps and desktop applications on the screen, using the Windows Store, and using Internet Explorer. It also shows how to connect to Microsoft account and use apps with account integration.

Target Audience
Business end users who are new to Windows, or existing Windows users who are new to Windows 8.1
