Use your Windows workspace anywhere.
You may have heard about a version of Windows that can be started from a USB stick. Here, we’ll take you through all you need to know about Windows to Go.
1) It’s bootable Windows
Windows 8.1 Enterprise users can create a USB drive, which you can use to access the OS while away from your desk, using the Windows to Go Creator Wizard or a command line. There’s no limit on the number of drives an IT manager can make.
2) It’ll run on anything that can take Windows 7 and has a USB port
Microsoft says it will run on most systems that can handle Windows 7 or 8, though you don’t need either of them installed on the host PC. Microsoft recommends you use an approved USB drive, preferably plugged into an integrated USB 3.0 port, which are usually blue and marked with the letters SS (for SuperSpeed).
3) All your work files, settings and apps will be there
Creating the drives copies a "Workspace" over to the USB, allowing users access to all the information they need. IT managers can even set up access to company intranets through programmes such as DirectAccess.
