Concluding my holiday hiatus from the SuperSite, I was able to get a lot more work done on "Windows 8.1 Book" this past week, finishing two more chapters and starting work on a third. I'll be returning to a normal schedule on this site starting Monday.
This week's updates (with the newest posts at the top) include:
Here is the first draft version of the GAMES chapter, which focuses on the Xbox Games app.
Here is a very early peek at what I hope will be a very short GAMES chapter for "Windows 8.1 Book." This chapter covers the Xbox Games app and ways with which you can interact with Xbox Live.
Here is the first draft version of the Apps chapter, which focuses on Windows Store and the Store app.
Here's another update to the APPS chapter for "Windows 8.1 Book." I wasn't sure if I'd have time to post another update, which I why I posted the earlier version today. But I kept working on it, so what the heck.
Here is a second pass the APPS chapter for "Windows 8.1 Book." It doesn't seem like a big update, but I had started adding a section about the apps included with Windows 8.1 and about half way through it realized it was super-basic and more appropriate for the READ THIS FIRST chapter. So I pulled it out of this chapter and will hold on to it until I work on that introductory material.
Here is a very early peek at the APPS chapter for "Windows 8.1 Book," which will cover Windows Store, the Store app and various topics related to apps such as account management, app payment methods, managing running apps and so on.
I forgot to update the Table of Contents in the most recent book versions. Rather than repost them, I'll try to remember to do so for the next update. Sorry about that. –Paul
Thanks to some reader feedback, I made some changes to the People chapter, so I've updated the full book document as well. It was pointed out to me that the word "delete" didn't appear in the People chapter at all. Oops. So I added a section about deleting a contact and made a few other typo fixes.
In addition to these changes, I combined the USERS and SECURITY chapters into a single chapter and started work on the INTERNET EXPLORER chapter. These changes will be reflected in the next update.
