Hey guys, just made this so everyone could post their favorite features, settings, layouts, or thoughts of Windows 8.

Mine are definitely the Dock where you can access settings and control panel, and the new integrated apps!

I think the Early Launch Anti-Malware Protection is an incredible security feature that is commonly overlooked when it contributes so much.

I've used every version of Windows since its been made and there are NO useful features of Windows 8 when they don't include a Start button but there are apps you can install for free. Your stuck with Windows 8 because its installed on every new computer made so you have no option.

You can't access Safe Mode with the normal F8. You can access it once its started but whats the point if it doesn't start up.

 

Some users say you can access Safe Mode but I've asked and no one has given me a way, if anyone knows please tell me?
