Windows 8: Wish List of Features
« on: April 22, 2011, 11:31:59 PM »
New Welcome screen
A new User Interface similar to the Windows phone 7 has been seen in the latest builds of Windows 8; this would mark a distinct introduction to the computer’s use.

‘Modern’ Task Manager
A colleague wrote about this yesterday. So let me just add, with new screen features and statistics about usage, it should be a different utility vehicle.

Portable Workspaces
You may be able to put Windows 8 OS on a USB stick. This would be a portable development.

Aero auto-colorization
A new feature that reacts to the most prominent color of the Windows wallpaper.

Hybrid Booting
Core operating system files are ‘put to sleep’ which enables the startup time to be significantly reduced.

Simple system ‘reset’
When needed, you can reset the OS to it’s default settings.

Ribbons in Windows Explorer
Ribbons which are prominent in Office 2010, will change the interface look

ARM processor ‘tablet support’
ARM is a a low-power processor which allows devices to run longer on batteries and it will be available on Win8.

Genuine center
You will now be able to organize  your Windows licences with this center.

Cloud-based roaming profiles
With cloud operations becoming more frequent, it would only stand to reason that they would be available in the Windows 8.

Push notifications
This is similar to or is expected to be similar to the Windows Phone 7 push notification.

Improved disk cleanup
Cleaning your disk or Operating system by removing junk files will be easier and automatic.

‘Modern Reader’ PDF support
PDF files will have a new reader, and perhaps editor functionality.

Internet Explorer 10
Continue to enhance IE with a new version that competes easier with Chrome, and Firefox.

Internet Explorer ‘Immersive’
A slimmed down version of the browser will feel and look like the phone version.

SmartScreen file filter
SmartScreen filters out spam or bad links based on community responses.

Windows App Store
Get files, updates, and Apps from the Windows App Store.

History Vault
This will replace the Backup and Restore feature in Windows 7

Step-by-step install
The install wizard will be made easier to use for novices to work with.

ISO mounting
Users will be able to use ISO images and burn them as needed.

Native wake on LAN
Even if your PC is hibernating or turned off, a network push through will be able to turn it back on.

Webcam application
Users will be able to use their web cam with the new User Interface. They will be able start and stop videos, capture images immediately or after a short delay.
