Now that all Windows 8 users can finally make the switch to 8.1, it’s very important to know that Microsoft has tried to make the operating system a lot more intuitive with several improvements.

One of these is the addition of a new Help+Tips application that provides guidance to users looking for more information on a specific built-in tool.

As you can see in this video published by YouTube user bavogames, the app offers text descriptions and video tutorials about the new Windows 8 and 8.1 features, thus assisting both beginners and more experienced users as they discover the new operating system.

What’s more, Microsoft has also implemented a new Start button in Windows 8.1, making the updated platform not only look more familiar, but also a bit easier to use with a keyboard and mouse.
