    What are the hidden features in Windows 8

    Most of people might have already downloaded and tested the Windows 8 developer preview in their system. I know that there are number of features included in this version of Windows operating system. I do know about them because there are already numbers of threats roaring on the internet describing about that. But I think that there are still some features which are not revealed yet. Does anybody know about those hidden features? Or does anyone able find out any?

    Microsoft has secured the pre-release versions of Windows 8 so that you can see in the event of a leak tester in the elite circle hardly work on their new products for the developers in Redmond. Some inventors found, however, that can unlock with relatively small changes to the registry and dll files, these features still work in progress.

    Throw so well without extensive knowledge of Windows testers a look at the innovations in the pre-release versions of Windows 8, stands, now available for download a small program that simplifies this process. It contains only a few buttons, can be used to activate various functions.

    Windows 8 shows, despite a general stability more robust than Windows 7, a greater ability to detect and prevent crashes. To avoid exaggerated and ridiculous bills, Windows 8 provides for a system of control and limitation of connections (3G/WiFi/WWAN). It is unclear whether in addition to the sysadmin role can be operated by all users

    The new Task Manager can be spotted with the mini-tool. The user interface has been overhauled and has a number of new applications as separate lists for programs running in the background. Here, each entry in the Task Manager can be closed by a corresponding button. Another new feature in Windows 8 is the pdf viewer. Microsoft built the so-called Modern Reader in numerous future products with the goal of a more unified appearance. Also activate Windows by-8-Tweaker allows the newly integrated web application for photos and video.

    On Windows there is already a very effective diagnostic tool, this feature in Windows 8 will be further improved, in fact it will allow you to locate and possibly fix the crash in an effective way. In addition, the crash, when possible, will be isolated.

    Furthermore during the presentation of the new interface Windows Tablet 8, Microsoft has never Silverlight which is mentioned, many Silverlight-based application developers have feared the worst, thinking that this technology was abandoned by Redmond. Instead, Microsoft seems to be willing to integrate Silverlight in Windows 8, allowing you to exploit it outside the browser, giving life to a new category of applications based on appx.

    Re: What are the hidden features in Windows 8

    I also looking for some hidden features in Windows 8 while testing and finally I got one which I ever wanted. A function that expects a long time from Windows, the management of multiple virtual monitors. The taskbar in Windows 8 will be visible on all displays connected. But, like all the other features seen in builds under construction, the function may then miss the final version of the system.

    Yes. There are lots of hidden features which cannot be listed. The recently discovered new hidden features of Windows 8 are very interesting, which round up Windows, filling some gaps up to version 7.

    Re: What are the hidden features in Windows 8

    One of the criticisms made by those who use a PC with multiple monitors is the 'absence of the Taskbar on secondary monitors, even in the modern Windows 7. This obliges us to resort to third-party software, some even well made, but that cannot reach the quality standards of a natively integrated in the system tray.

    Windows 8 may change the tables in this sense, introducing the possibility to display the Taskbar on all monitors. It is unclear whether the approach will be displaying all the windows of all the taskbar, or the use of differentiated TASBI that display the windows open on that monitor, but the ideal would be to have the opportunity to choose between both modes.

    Windows has long provided a system for diagnosing problems, but it seems that Windows 8 will be further improved: in fact allow you to locate and possibly fix the crash in an effective way.
