Features Upgrading from:What you can keep: Windows 8 PreviewPersonal files Windows 8 Developer PreviewNothing, but your old files will be saved in the windows. old fol­der Windows 7Software programs; Windows settings; personal files Windows VistaWindows settings; personal files Windows XPPersonal files Windows 8 Pro Upgrade from XP/Vista/Win 7 If you currently have a personal computer running Windows 7, Windows XP or Windows Vista then you can upgrade to Windows 8 Pro (Professional). With Windows 8 Pro, you can connect and share your files. Windows 8 Pro also adds enhanced features if you need to connect to company networks, access remote files, encrypt sensitive data, and other more advanced tasks. The new Windows 8 start screen is your personalized home for items you use the most and can be customized according to your user preferences. Windows 8 Live tiles provide real-time updates from your Facebook, Twitter, and e-mail accounts. Along with the new Start screen, the lock screen now includes e-mail, calendar, and clock widgets. To access your PC, Microsoft has replaced a standard PIN or password with a swipe gesture; unlock your PC by clicking or swiping preset locations you've selected on the lock screen. New functions also allow you to search for your favorite software programs, open, close, hide, resize, or run multiple apps simultaneously with the swipe of a finger or a swipe of the mouse. Windows has also made changes to make your PC more secure by boosting its existing security features and adding SmartScreen, which acts to prevent suspicious programs or apps from being installed or running on your machine. Finally, Windows 8 also gives you the ability to refresh itself to give users a new starting point and a cleaner version of Windows. You can upgrade to Windows 8 from Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP, Windows 8 Release Preview, Windows 8 Consumer Preview, or Windows Developer Preview, but you might not be able to keep all of your files, software programs, and settings. The following table shows what you can keep during an upgrade, depending on the current version of Windows you are running. If you choose to boot from removable media, you won't be able to keep your software programs, Windows settings, or personal files when you upgrade. Microsoft Windows 8 Pro is built on the rock-solid foundation of Windows 7, but it's been improved on all fronts. You can install Windows 8 on the same hardware that powers Windows Vista and Windows 7, and you'll love how it works on new devices, too. Windows 8 was designed with Windows 7 apps in mind, because you probably have older apps you need to use. In addition to the new look of the Start Screen, Windows 8 incorporates the desktop that you're familiar with. Think of the desktop as one of the many apps you can run in Windows 8. In the desktop, you'll see all the settings, devices and features you used in Windows 7—and you can run the desktop apps you ran in Windows 7, too. A New Look The Start screen is all you Each tile on Start is connected to a person, app, website, folder, playlist, or whatever else is important to you. Pin as many tiles to Start as you like and move them around so it's just the way you want it. This isn't the usual wall of static icons: Tiles animate with the latest information. Status updates, weather forecasts, Tweets, and more—you'll see live updates before you even open a single app. See something, share something Your photos, websites, that funny video you just saw: Pretty much anything you're looking at, you can share with others. Instantly. There's no need to interrupt what you're doing, copy what you want to share, open another app, and paste it in. Just swipe in from the right and tap or click Share to immediately send it in email or post it to Facebook. Touch and mouse Windows is perfect for PCs with touchscreens, those that have a mouse and keyboard, and those with both. Whatever kind of PC you choose, you'll discover fast and fluid ways to switch between apps, move things around, and move smoothly from one place to another. Zip around, get it done Discover fast and fun ways to get around Pinch and stretch to zoom in and out. Get a global view of everything that's on your screen, and slide back and forth to find what you're looking for. Swipe in from the left to switch between recently used apps. Swipe in from the right to get back to Start and to other things you do often, like searching, sharing, and changing your settings. - Microsoft Windows 8 Pro - Virtual Upgrage
