Wallpaper, slideshow, weather and more
While in the Configure Search and Launch control, click on the View option in the left bar, and you can select the desktop background. In addition to the traditional wallpapers, you can have a slideshow of your own pictures, or a picture of the day from a variety of sources, a satellite view of the Earth, or even a weather report updated every 30 minutes.
Most frequently-used programs
The quick-launch area at the top of the screen contains a few simple items by default. You can add whatever you want from the menus below. To remove an item, click the "-" symbol that appears at the top left of each icon when you place the mouse cursor over it.
Grouping by categories
The menus in the lower half of the screen are grouped by categories. Click one of the categories to bring up the contents, and click Back beside the Search bar to return to the top-level menu categories. Any item in the menus can be added to the quick-launch area by simply clicking the star that appears at the top left of each icon when you place the mouse cursor over it.
