I hope that all of you had a great 2013! Moving into 2014 there are a lot of changes in the computing world coming our way. Microsoft is ending support for Windows XP in a few months. Intel is changing the name of McAfee to Intel Security, watch for SPAM and Malware around that change!
Windows 8.1 is now the mainstream release for Microsoft OS. I know it is different and feels a bit strange. It is like a new set of shoes you have to break them in. A couple of hints. There are two new shortcut keys in Windows 8: Press the Windows key and the D key at the same time to go to the desktop and the Windows key with the X key for a simplified start menu. Finally with the start menu up you can just start typing the name of the program you want to run and Windows will find it for you.
