Microsoft Location Finder
Turn your laptop into a GPS-type device without having to purchase extra hardware. Microsoft Location Finder is a client-side application that turns a regular WiFi enabled laptop, Tablet, or PC into a location-determining device without the addition of any separate hardware. When launched by a user, Microsoft Location Finder uses WiFi access points -- or reverse IP lookup when WiFi is not available -- to center and display the person's location on a Windows Live Local, enabling the user to quickly and easily search in their present location.
USB Flash Drive Manager
The Microsoft USB Flash Drive Manager will help you backup and restore presentation, pictures, songs and applications from and to USB Flash Drive devices and take them with you. The application can also help you to classify and name USB Flash Drive images (for instance, "My network configuration" or "The pictures for my grandma") and lets you see this name whenever the USB Flash Drive is plugged into the computer.
Free guide: Windows 8 Cheat Sheet: Keyboard Shortcuts. Microsoft Windows has always had some fantastic time-saving keyboard shortcuts designed to make our lives easier. For example: CTRL-X will cut text or objects, and CTRL-V will paste them. (Of course, you can use your mouse to achieve the same thing, but it requires clicking and fumbling through menus, which can be a huge time waster if you cut and paste 50+ times a day). With Windows 8, Microsoft has added many new keyboard shortcuts to their operating system; unfortunately, it's a bit of a learning curve. That's where the Windows 8 keyboard shortcuts cheat sheet comes in! Simply download the guide and reference it when you need to. You'll save a ton of time using your keyboard, rather than reaching for the mouse and flipping through oodles of menus trying to find what you're looking for. Share and enjoy!
