  9. 9. Windows 8 Touch Screen Tips From Windows 8 For Dummies by Andy Rathbone A touchscreen, as the name says, enables you to touch the screen to tell your computer what to do. Not sure whether you have a touchscreen? When you have Windows 8 running, give the screen a poke with your index finger to see what happens. The following terms refer to ways you interact with a touchscreen using your fingers or a stylus (pen): Tap: Briefly touch the screen. You select an object, such as a button, by tapping it. Drag: Touch and hold your finger on the screen, then move your finger across the screen. You move an object, such as an onscreen playing card, by dragging it. Swipe: Touch and move your finger more quickly than with drag. You can swipe your finger across the screen from any of the four sides of the screen to display options and commands. You swipe pages to move forward or back. You may see the word flick instead of swipe. Some people insist that a flick is faster or shorter than a swipe, but let’s not get caught up in that. Pinch and unpinch: Touch a finger and thumb or two fingers on the screen. Move your fingers closer to each other to pinch and spread them away from each other to unpinch. Generally, a pinch reduces the size of something on the screen or shows more content on the screen. An unpinch (an ugly word) zoomsin, increasing the size of something on -screen to show more detail.
  10. 10. New in Windows 8 — for XP and Windows 7 Users From Windows 8 For Dummies by Andy Rathbone If you've used Windows 7 or XP, you'll be up to speed with Windows 8 in no time. Most of the functions you are accustomed to are still available. Keep an eye out for the following changes from earlier versions of Windows: Faster start and stop: Windows 8 starts and sleeps faster than earlier versions, making it more responsive. Start screen: The Start menu has been replaced by a screen full of tiles used to launch apps (programs). Just start typing to search for a specific app. App tiles: The boxes on the Start screen are called tiles and can be square or rectangular. Tiles can show current information, such as the weather or your latest e-mail. Select a tile to open that app. Microsoft Store: The Store provides a central clearinghouse for you to find and install new apps, many for free. Apps in the Store meet requirements set by Microsoft for function and security. File Picker: The old File dialog boxes have been replaced by a full-screen file picker that displays more files at once. Select the Files heading to browse locations. Desktop and taskbar: These mainstays of earlier versions of Windows are no longer front and center – you may find that you nev- er use them. However, they’re still there if you need them. File Explorer: Windows Explorer is now the File Explorer and features a ribbon with the tools you need. Touchscreen, mouse, and keyboard: Windows 8 works equally well with different methods of input
