Once you enter in your email address, it will begin to associate your account as a Windows Live ID which can be used with Windows 8. This part of Windows setup may take a few minutes, depending on your download and upload broadband speeds.
A familiar sight to many, this is the new Start screen which effectively replaces the Start menu in older versions of Windows. The tiles that you see are links to applications which open in full-screen. But, don't worry -- your regular applications are still there in the background, waiting to be opened and accessed. Just because Windows 8 looks a bit different (it's optimised for tablet PCs, don't forget), your regular applications should still work.
You can change the prominence settings of your tiles by making them larger or smaller -- or you can unpin them from where they are, or even uninstall them if you no longer require them.
