Using the Classic Desktop
Although the new Metro interface gets most of the attention when talking about
Windows 8, the classic desktop also received some minor refinements. Almost
all of the changes are cosmetic because the underlying system components are
almost identical to Windows 7, just optimized.
What’s New?
The new desktop features are centered on Windows taskbar and the File Explorer
interface. Users will instantly recognize the familiar ribbon interface from
Microsoft Office that has been integrated within File Explorer. Love it or hate it,
many new options are just a click away. The file copy/move dialog box also got
a big update with a pretty graph and the ability to pause file transfers, which
can be very helpful, as shown in Figure 3-7.
