We mentioned earlier that it’s jarring to switch between the Start screen and desktop interfaces because they’re just so drastically different. Unfortunately, Windows 8 often forces this transition by using many Windows 8 apps as the default programs for certain file types.
Using the Windows 8 Interface : Bypassing the Start Screen (part 1) - Booting Directly to the Desktop, Accessing Start Menu Items from the Taskbar
The bad news is that Windows 8 doesn’t offer any built-in option that you can set to boot directly to the desktop. There’s no setting, no Registry value, no group policy. We experimented with various startup and logon tweaks, but we found them to be flaky and slow.
Windows 8 : Introducing Storage Spaces - Creating storage spaces
Storage Spaces is the new storage virtualization and management technology Microsoft has developed. The concept of Storage Spaces has been around for quite some time; Windows Home Server used Drive Extender to make external storage manageable within Windows Home Server, and Storage Spaces takes a cue from this technology.
Windows 8 : Working with file systems (part 5) - Working with quotas, Working with quotas for user accounts
Working with disk quotas can provide a way to ensure that certain volumes allow each person using the computer to use only a predetermined amount of space. Consider the following example.
Windows 8 : Working with file systems (part 4) - Understanding Encrypting File System, BitLocker
Windows and NTFS provide a method for each person using a computer to encrypt his or her files, folders, and drives. Encrypting File System (EFS) is a method used to encrypt files and determine who can access the files.
Windows 8 : Working with file systems (part 3) - Auditing access to securable objects by using SACLs
After the security of discretionary access lists is in place, NTFS allows only those user accounts or groups with the correct permissions to access objects. However, others within an environment might attempt to access files or folders.
Windows 8 : Working with file systems (part 2) - Inheritance and cumulative effectiveness
The combinations of permissions are complex. Before you consider them, think about the inheritance of permissions and the fact that permissions for user accounts and groups have a cumulative effect. This alone can be confusing.
Windows 8 : Working with file systems (part 1) - Security within the file system
One of the primary focuses of the NTFS file system is security. People who use Windows have at one time or another tried to open a file on the network and received an Access Denied message for that particular file.
Windows 8 : Managing disks and storage (part 5) - Using Microsoft Drive Optimizer to organize data - The DiskPart utility

Windows 8 : Managing disks and storage (part 4) - Using Microsoft Drive Optimizer to organize data - Check Disk (chkdsk)
The disk optimizer and Disk Cleanup utilities provide methods to handle poorly performing disks within a computer; chkdsk (pronounced “check disk”) performs disk repair to help correct problems with the drives themselves.
Windows 8 : Managing disks and storage (part 3) - Using Microsoft Drive Optimizer to organize data
Disk Defragmentation doesn’t clean up files and folders on a computer as much as organize them into a more efficient layout on the disk. It does this by consolidating free space at the end of the disk and by ensuring that system files and similar files are grouped together.

Windows 8 : Sharing files and folders (part 6) - Understanding NTFS permissions - Identifying permissions, Taking ownership of a resource
With this permission sleight of hand, you might wonder how you can discover who has permissions to what. As you move deeper into the folder hierarchy and as permission inheritance is blocked at different levels, it can become confusing.
Windows 8 : Sharing files and folders (part 5) - Understanding NTFS permissions - Creating advanced security settings
NTFS permissions can get confusing because of the way they work. What you just saw was straightforward information—apply a permission, and it takes effect. However, as you investigate further, additional complexity becomes apparent.
Windows 8 : Sharing files and folders (part 4) - Understanding NTFS permissions - Modifying file or folder permissions
In addition to the permissions that you can set when you share a folder, Windows includes a second, more comprehensive set of permissions. Called NTFS permissions, these can allow or deny permissions on a per-file or per-folder basis on the Windows 8–based computer.
Windows 8 : Sharing files and folders (part 3) - Sharing a folder
