The minute you turn it on, the difference is apparent. Instead of the familiar desktop, you see a handsome, modern, slick world of large, scrolling tiles and simpler, full-screen apps best used on a touch screen and inspired by tablets and smartphones.
This is called the Start screen and it replaces the Start Menu every Windows user knows. But it’s not just a menu, it’s a whole computing environment that takes over the entire display, with its own separate apps and controls. The old desktop and old-style apps are still there. But in Windows 8, the desktop is like another app — you tap or click on a Start screen icon or button to use it.
