How to Create a New Tutorial
Note   Note
Creating a tutorial is for posting a tip or trick about Windows 8 to share with others to help them. Please do not create a tutorial to ask a question about a problem. The Windows Eight Forums section is used for separate questions instead. Please only post a reply or question about a tutorial inside that tutorial instead.
