Dig a little deeper and there’s loads to love about Windows 8 and 8.1.
3D printing support
Microsoft has now included 3D printing support in Windows 8.1, so when you do eventually have enough money to buy that 3D printer you have your eyes on, you know you’ll be sorted with Windows 8.1 It also stuck in support for NFC tap-to-print and Wi-Fi direct printing too!
Boot straight to the desktop
If you’re not too fond of the Windows 8 start screen, in 8.1, there’s the option to boot straight to the dekstop that you’re familiar with.
Right click on the taskbar, then go to properties > navigation > check ‘show the apps view automatically when I go to start’ and then pressing the start button will show you your installed apps rather than app tiles.
To boot to the dekstop straight away, select properties > navigation > and check ‘when I sign in or close all applications on a screen, go to the dekstop onstead of start’.
