My Top Ten list of new features in Windows 8.1

            Windows 8.1, formerly known as Windows Blue, is recently released on 17th October.It is considered to be a comprehensive update to Windows 8.It is available for free to the existing Windows 8 users via Windows Store and is available from 18th October in market for buying.It is updated keeping in mind about the needs of PC users along with modern tablets.Here are some of the remarkable features on my top 10 list you can see in Windows 8.1.

i.)Start Button is Back
             The start button is what most of the Windows users has been missing in Windows 8. It is now back with windows 8.1,although it still redirects to Start Screen rather than the Start Menu.

ii.)Lock Screen SlideShow
             Lock Screen is the screen that appear on your PC when you boot your computer or when the computer is sleeping prior to entering password.

           People started using Lock Screen to put their favourite photos ,so that they can be seen at the very     first glimpse.Now in windows 8.1, you can make slideshow of pictures to make a photo frame that can be uploaded either locally from hard drive or from Skydrive.

          Moreover you can unlock the Camera , answer a skype call and get email notifications without needing to enter a password.

iii.)More Snap Views
          Now you can choose snap views, of two apps running ,at any ratio you  want. For eg: You may prefer 50:50 ratio of snap views of apps as shown in figure below.Also you can have multiple windows of same app snapped together.

iv.) Boot to Desktop
           With Windows 8.1 , you can boot directly to desktop,if you like with no metro in sight. This retains the property of traditional Windows O.S. that may you'd love to.

v.)Attractive Start Screen
          Windows 8.1 has added more colors to the start screen.It has also added attractive backgrounds for start screen.One can set a desktop background as a start screen background.

vi.)Reformation of Tiles
            Windows 8.1 features variety of tile sizes i.e.small ,medium,wide and large.Grouping the tiles with specific names is also made easier.You can now select multiple tiles all at once and do operations such as Resize , Uninstall,Unpin,Rearrange in groups  etc.We can view all apps in Apps Views by swiping from buttom and filter the apps by name,date installed,most used or by category.When you install a new app from Windows Store ,it will no longer appear in Start Screen instead you will find the apps under Apps Views as mentioned above and the app is marked as 'new' so that you can choose it to pin in the start screen.


vii.)Improved Windows Store
                    Windows store is much improved now compare to that of Windows 8.It is now easier to find new and interesting apps.Now, there is the feature of automatic installation of App updates in background coming from the store.Also,  there is a search bar at top left side of the store to search the desired apps. Here is the screen shot of the store:

viii.)Easy Search
                   Now you can bing search from start screen without going to the actual app. You can also choose to search from Everywhere, Setting ,Files ,Web Images or Web Videos.

  ix.)Help+Tips App
                   It is the new App introduced in Windows 8.1 ,divided into six different categories, to help new comers to get started easily .

x.) Internet Explorer 11
                     It is the latest version of internet explorer available for Windows 8.1 users. For the detail features of  IE 11 refer to my previous blog post

Big Impact on me by small act of MIC Nepal

  It's been nearly one and half year since  i have been associated with MIC Nepal in one or other way. I came to know about MIC Nepal through our previous MSP Aashish Acharya, when we were in 1st semester .I  attended "MTA Training in Networking Fundamental" as a first event in MIC Nepal.It has not been much fruitful to me as i realized then my field of interest is being developer rather than in networking. Thanks to MIC Nepal ,i realized my field of interest early in 1st semester. After that i keep on involving in many activities related to MIC Nepal like Install Fest , Tech Explosion , DBA  programs etc.  which boost my knowledge as well confidence.
       Now comes the dramatic change part in my life. I attended windows 8 app development camp organized by joint effort of MIC Nepal , our previous MSP Aashish Acharya and current MSPs Chandan Gupta , Puja Shrestha and Alisha Thapaliya.Till then ,i know nothing about visual studio or C# .But amazingly i learned and  I developed a nice app within 5 days training ,which would have been impossible without their supports.It was my first app but get nice response from others. It develop confidence on me like "I CAN ALSO DO SOMETHING" and MIC Nepal provides the platform for me.
       Again  i attended recently conducted "OFFICE APP DEVELOPMENT CAMP" at MIC Nepal . As before, i have almost zero knowledge on HTML5 , Javascript, Jquery and CSS3. But again i learned and develop an app.This time my app stood second in the camp  and got a cool "waterbag" from Allen sir.It was  one of the happiest moment of my life. Since then, i am working on developing another cool app . Thanks to MIC Nepal , now i have confidence that i can develop cool apps not only in MICROSOFT platform but others too.
        MIC Nepal consist of bunch of experienced and cool teams .Allen sir , Junu mam ,Purnima mam , Sonika Mam ,Nairisha di,Prashish dai etc. are the bunch of friendly people over  there.They are always helpful and cooperative . I feel like "my own office"  when i visit MIC Nepal :D due to their friendly behaviour. It means a lot to me. Thanks MIC Nepal for having "BIG IMPACT ON ME DUE TO YOUR SMALL ACT".
