  • Learn about apps, find and download them, then resize and move them and maximise, minimise or close from their titlebars

  • Talk to Cortana, the voice-activated Personal Digital Assistant which can perform searches on your computer or the web, perform actions like opening apps or documents, or set reminders and more
