Free Windows 8 user guide

In an effort to keep educating users on how to navigate Windows 8, Microsoft has just made available the “Windows 8 End User Training Brochure”.

This is a Windows 8 user guide that includes 36 pages, full-colored, on how to navigate the new Metro-style user interface (Charms, Start screen, and more) with the mouse and using touch gestures.

The End User Training Brochure also dives into other features like File History — although, you can also check the guide I created previously –, BitLocker, social hub, profile and settings.

Microsoft also added a red section, the last one, which teaches you what to do in your mouse and Windows 8, for example, “click top left corner (repeat)” to “switch to the next open app”. And finally you’ll find a list of the most common keyboard shortcuts to get things done quicker. The Windows 8 user guide PDF file is free and you can download from this Microsoft web page.
