Get The Windows 8 UI For Free

The changes in the Windows 8 UI did not please most of the users. There are a number of posts in different blogs and website, where people have expressed their complaints about the changes in the new operating system. Microsoft has realized that the tile-based OS is not the OS that everybody likes; Many of them do not even want to know about the security features that are better than in the previous ones. Considering all these, Microsoft is planning to go back to its old UI.

If you are thinking about how to upgrade to Windows 8, here is a chance to try out Windows 8 UI at no charge. Checking out the demo model that is available in the stores is not the right option to get to know how Windows 8 works.

With the WinMetro app, you can try Windows 8 on your Windows 7 or Windows Vista PC at free of cost. WinMetro is a replica of the Windows 8 user interface, in which you would be able to check all the features such as the weather, date and time, stocks, news, apps, calendars and all other features that are used often.

The replica is not the exact UI but it has all features that are just enough help you know how the new OS UI would look like and the way it works. Before figuring out how to upgrade to Windows 8, you should check how it works.

Instructions for downloading the app

For downloading the program, visit the Winmetro download page. Here you would find a green button to download the app, click on it. There is a small header in the center of the page, under that you would find a link that says ‘Download Locations’. Click on the first option that says ‘Download@MajorGeeks’, this is supposed to initiate the download instantly.

You now have to open the file and execute it once and the download is complete. As it is with every other software program, you will have to accept the license agreement to start the process. At the end of the installation, the program would prompt you to install the antivirus software ‘Advanced System Care Ultimate’. In case you already have one, do not bother about it and click on ‘Finish’.

At the end of the installation, the program would launch automatically. When you are done with the testing, to close down the program, click on the X button on the top right corner.
