In Pictures: 8 ways to customise Windows 8

Here are eight ways that you can customise your installation of Windows 8 Consumer Preview.

Activate SkyDrive

SkyDrive is Microsoft’s cloud storage service. There’s a SkyDrive app listed on the Start Metro panel. Through it, you can upload files to the cloud -- to storage space on your SkyDrive user account -- and download files you’ve stored on it to your local computer. Conveniently, you can access your SkyDrive files from another computer (whether it’s running Windows 8 or another OS) through a Web browser. Microsoft offers 25GB of space on SkyDrive for free. All you have to do is log in with a Windows Live or Hotmail account, or sign up for either service for free.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
