Microsoft Windows 8 Can Be Installed Using A USB Stick

Posted Jul 10, 2012

At Microsoft’s Worldwide Partner Conference, the company showed off “Windows 8 on a stick.”  The USB stick can run Windows 8 on a PC even if it currently runs on Windows 7.  Not only that, but it can allow users to bring their personal data with them.  The portable version of Windows 8 is known as “Windows To Go.”  A users’ apps and settings can be saved on a 32GB USB drive so that users can make any computer seem like their home computer.  This makes it a great way for corporate users to easily access their work data on multiple PCs while still being able to use Windows 8.  Windows is a bit of a clunky operating system, but you have to give Microsoft credit when it comes to innovation.
