The familiar made better
The desktop you're used to—with its familiar folders and icons—is still here. And not just still here, it's actually better than before, with a new task manager and streamlined file management. And you can always get to your desktop—and back to your Start screen again—with a tap or click.
Use them the way you always have. Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and other programs you count on work the way you're used to office licence required). Use a mouse and keyboard and organize your stuff in folders on the desktop.
Windows Defender and Windows SmartScreen can help guard your PC against viruses, spyware, and other malicious software in real time. Family Safety gives your kids some independence while still keeping tabs on them.
Mouse and keyboard
You can use a mouse and keyboard to work on your Windows desktop the way you always have. And things you do with touch, like using apps from the Windows Store and getting around on your Start screen, can also be done with a mouse and keyboard.
Your Windows, everywhere
It goes where you go.
Use your Microsoft account to sign in to any of your devices running Windows 8.1, and you'll see the same layout, apps, and settings. Signing in with your Microsoft Account (which is simply an email address and password of your choice) also gives you access to a world of apps from the Windows Store, and lets you save, view, and edit your documents and photos online with SkyDrive.
Your files are always with you
SkyDrive is free online storage that's built into Windows 8.1. Save documents, photos, and other files to SkyDrive automatically, and get to them anytime, from any of your PCs or devices. And you can use SkyDrive to protect your files if something happens to your PC.
You can also use SkyDrive to share and collaborate with others, and see your stuff on mobile and non-Windows devices.

Looks way better than win7, but still have the functionality of win7. Just takes a bit of getting use to.
