A single search now brings you results from your PC, your apps, and the web. See results in a clean, graphic view that lets you take immediate action and launch apps. Search, click, do. Find a song and start playing it, or find a video and watch it right away. Powered by Bing.

You’ll notice that the Windows Store has a new look which makes it easier to discover and download new apps. And the apps that are included with Windows 8.1 Preview let you do a bunch of cool things. For example, the Camera app can shoot 8 frames per second before, during, and after you push the button. So you never miss a shot.

Set up a slide show on your lock screen by picking your favourite pictures. Arrange the stuff on your Start screen so it’s just the way you want it. Choose from more tile sizes, more colours, and more backgrounds—including animated backgrounds.

For more on what’s new, check out the Windows 8.1 Preview Product Guide.

You can download the preview build here.
