Photos

The Photos app is the Windows 8 home for all your photos, both on your PC and in your social networks. The main Photos screen is divided into the following five sections:

Pictures Library—Click this tile to see a list of the subfolders in your Pictures library, then click a subfolder to see its images.

Facebook—If you’ve connected your Facebook account to your Microsoft account, click this tile to see a list of the albums on your Facebook profile.

SkyDrive Photos—Click this tile to see the images in your SkyDrive’s Pictures folder.

Flickr—If you have a Flickr account, click this tile to connect to that account and display your Flickr albums.

Devices—Click this tile to view the photos on your connected devices. For this to work, each device must be running the SkyDrive software, available from http://skydrive.com/ windows.


Tip

If there are any sections of the Photos app you never use, you can hide them. Press Windows Logo+I (or display the Charms menu and click Settings) to open the Settings pane, and then click Settings. Click the switch to Off for each section you want to hide.


In each case, once you open a folder you can scroll left and right through the images, or you can click an image to view it full-screen and then use the left and right arrow keys to navigate the rest of the photos. You can also right-click the screen and then click Slide Show to view the images in the current folder as an automatic slide show.

SkyDrive

SkyDrive is a simple file uploader that enables you to send files from your PC to your SkyDrive:

1. Click the SkyDrive folder you want to use as the upload destination.

2. Right-click the screen and then click Add.

3. Use the file picker screen to select the file you want to upload.

4. Click Add to SkyDrive. The SkyDrive app uploads the file.

Sports

The Sports app is loaded with sports-related news, stats, and standings. The main Sports app screen is divided horizontally into four sections:

Top Story—The top sports story of the day.

News—The latest news stories from the world of sports.

Schedule—Upcoming games in whatever major sports are currently playing.

Favorite Teams—A list of the teams you’re watching. To add a team to your list, click Add (+), type the team name, and then click the team you want in the list that appears. You can then click the team to get extra information related to that team, including news (see Figure 5), schedules, results, individual stats, team stats, and the team roster.

Restart Sports to put the new setting into effect.


You can also see extra news and data from various leagues by right-clicking the screen and using the app bar to click a league (such as NFL, NBA, MLB, or NHL).
