The Windows 8 Dance

The Windows 8 Dance

By Melanie Gass ‘The Microsoft Princess’

We don’t usually correlate an operating system with dancing. In fact, there aren’t a whole lot of us out there who as adults say we get down on the dance floor unless it’s the funky chicken or electric slide at a wedding and we’re forced. In my opinion though, you can dance in Windows 8 and is 3 steps: snap, shake, and drop to the floor.

With this dance, no one will see you, no partner required, and if you have 2 left feet that’s fine. There are official names to these steps, but why go through boring technicalities when trying to have fun in Windows 8? And for those of you that are still on Windows 7 or considering a Windows 8 downgrade to it, these steps work for this version too.

Enjoy the dance!
