In Pictures: 8 ways Microsoft could improve Windows 8

Here is our wish list of things we’d love to see in an update or service pack for Windows 8.

Add multiple-pane functionality to File Explorer We like the addition of the Ribbon UI, which gives us greater flexibility in how we can manage our files. We think Microsoft should add the ability to view individual folder branches in separate panes, which are all contained within the main File Explorer window. For example, one pane would show the files on our Windows 8 system’s main storage medium, and another pane would show the files on an external drive. And we should be able to drag-and-drop files between the panes.

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.
