New look for old functions
The venerable Display dialog box in the Desktop Control Panel has changed little since the 1990s. With this update it finally gets a modern look and feel.
SkyDrive is built in
During setup for a new user account, you’re given the option to connect to SkyDrive. If you say yes, these options are available in the new PC Settings. No external utility is required; sync is built in and works with Windows RT too.
The return of the Start button
It’s back. In fact, there’s no way to hide the new Start button. A simple click takes you to the Start screen. One noteworthy change on the right-click power user’s menu is a new set of Shutdown options.
