How Windows 8/RT tablets can teach newbies navigation gesture QUICKLY!


I am replying to a forum post when it struck me that one of the reasons why people have so much problem with navigating Windows 8 with touch gestures is the fact that there are simply no instructions or hints for you to swipe from the edges.

I’ve watch a few unboxing videos & those Windows tablets came in clear cling film which protects the screen & other surfaces, and sometimes indicate what the various hardware buttons do.

There is supposedly an animated tutorial when you first setup your Windows 8 tablet but I believe you can skip it. The problem is, after skipping it, it’s almost impossible to find that tutorial again.

So why can’t vendors (including Microsoft) just print additional instructions on the cling film or affix clear stickers at the bezel to indicate how edge swipes work in Windows 8/RT tablets, or even laptops with touchscreen.

It’ll go a long way in assuring new users of Windows 8/RT has the basic knowledge on the most important swipes needed to successfully navigate the Start Screen without a lot of fumbling & frustrations.
