    1. Improved features when using multiple monitors. Now, for example, Windows 8 will extend your taskbar to both screens. so now yo can move apps across monitors.
    2. Take Screenshots Faster. With Windows 8 you can press Win+Print Screen, and a screenshot of your screen will be automatically saved in your Pictures folder as a PNG file.
    3.Better customization of your Jump List. You can customize Jump Lists far better than you could with Windows 7, you now have the option to hide recently opened items and programs.

    4. Better extraction of a USB disk similar to ejecting a DVD.
    5. Starting Japanese IME is not annoying any more.
    6. Services are properly explained in Task Manager.

    Wow, I didn't know number 2. I have been trying to find the snipping tool. Does the snipping tool still exist? It didn't come up in a search.

    Didn't know about the quick screenshot shortcut, nice.

    I personally use Hyperdesktop for all my screenshot needs though, it automatically uploads the images to imgur and copies to the link to my clipboard, allowing me to quickly take screenshots of stuff and share them.
