    This is a 27 minute video that shows you some of the basics of Windows 8. It is intended to help those of you who have not yet tried the Windows 8 Consumer Preview. Although not a perfect professional job, it may make it easier to get you started with Windows 8 after you watched this video. Full screen view is best.


    Note: If you have a problem with the loudness of the sound output of the video, check the "Loudness Equalization" box in your Playback device. It is under the 'Enhancements' tab.

    The volume for me is very low, turned my settings up all the way and can hear your voice but not loud enough to understand.

    EDIT:
    The new sound track is working great.

    Nice work, thanks.

    thanks for the video, but yes, your voice is quiet, wolfgang. when the windows sounds happens, they are loud!

    we also see a little glimpse of your email address, if that bothers you.

    Thanks for the video, I'm sure poeples will apreciate, but I just want to point out a mistake you made in the video and in few posts here, the IE you open in the desktop, is not IE9 it's IE10 too.

    Not on my system. I have IE9 on the desktop. I think the IE10 notion in 'About ...' is wrong.

    It is too bad that there is still this audio problem. I had rerecorded it with another screen capture program that always worked. And it works here and also for some other people. It is a straight forward .wmv from the outset. No idea why some of you still have that problem.. I am sorry. Maybe I should redo it from scratch.

    As area 66 mentioned, both versions of IE under Windows 8 CP are version 10. In fact, they have the same build number.

    They did that probably to confuse the innocent.
