The touch-friendly interface is key to Windows 8. Designed for PCs and tablets ("slates") in mind, tablets are more to-the-chest and personal devices. Windows setup gives you the option to display your password, in case the touch-screen is not properly aligned yet or the user has yet to get used to it.
Now the settings are to get going. The express route allows you to basically enable everything to protect you from the word go, and to keep Windows updated. It also ensures that devices around you are connected, and enables key features such as location. However, in this case, it's better to customise the settings manually -- just so you know exactly what you are getting.
This screen is the revamped "public" versus "private" network connection setting, as seen in Vista and Windows 7. Depending on where you are, and which network you are connecting to, it would be wise to select the appropriate option to ensure that unknown others on the same network as you cannot access your files, documents, video or music content.
