Contrary to popular perception, you can theoretically transfer operating system to a new SSD hard drive, if you have recently upgraded it without the need of reinstallation of the entire operating system. However, until now, it has intimidated even the most experienced Windows users, since this requires cloning your system drive using the appropriate tools.

The process, earlier considered as time-consuming and filled with errors even by the professional users, has now become an extremely simple affair with EaseUS Partition Master professional tool. Windows 8 transfer has never been this easier, all thanks to the EaseUS Partition Master tool that does all the work for you.

Using this tool, you will be able to transfer Windows 8 operating system into SSD hard drive without any hassles whatsoever. Here’s how you do this the right way:

  • From the official website, select the right version of the EaseUS Partition Master program and then install it.
  • Once installed, launch the application from the Start menu. Click on the Migrate OS to SSD/HDD option, which is available in the Main Menu.
  • Since you have SSD hard-disk, choose this option as the destination disk.
  • Proceed to delete all the partitions on the destination disk. You are forewarned: deleting the partitions will automatically delete the data inside the destination disk as well. So, backup all your data on to a different location before you delete the entire disk.

Windows 8.1 Gains Market Share Against Windows 8

                Windows 8 Support

For the first time, Windows 8.1 has left Windows 8 behind and has become the second most widely used Windows operating system. Well, in terms of market share at the moment, Windows 8.1 has only the third position. Windows 7 secures about half of the total Windows market share while Windows XP takes up ¼. Nevertheless, when it comes to supported operating systems, Windows 8.1 is ranked second in terms of market share. Windows Vista occupies about 6 percent of the market share and Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 take up 6.35 percent and 6.29 percent of the market shares respectively. The latest report of the Windows market share was released by Netmarketshare.

Remarkable changes in the Windows market share in the last few months

Last few months witnessed remarkable changes in the Windows market share. Windows 8.1, the latest Windows operating system from Microsoft, saw a slight increase in the number of people adopting it while Windows 8, the predecessor of Windows 8.1, saw many abandoning it. Microsoft allows Windows 8 users to upgrade to Windows 8.1 for free given that they have a valid product key. Windows 8.1 is integrated with many new features and has retained old features like Windows 8 transfer.

Another interesting change reported last month was the number of users migrating to Windows 7. Experts say that the termination of Windows XP support has triggered the migration to the Windows 7. Traditional users are not quite happy with the new Windows 8 interface and the sophisticated features. They would rather use the modest Windows 7. It is said that this is the first time a Windows operating system is gaining market share after the release of its successor.

Will Windows 8 outdo Windows 7?

Recently, a tech journal predicted that Windows 8 would never outdo Windows 7. The latest trends are a sign that this prediction is well founded. What makes Windows 7 popular at present is that it provides much compatibility with most of the latest applications as well as older applications. Conversely, Windows 8 supports only the recently released applications. It will sure support all the upcoming applications. However, if users have to run their legacy applications, they have to downgrade to an older operating system or run the application in compatibility mode.

Features like Windows 8 transfer have helped Windows 8 be somewhat appealing for few users. But, the absence of traditional features and an unfriendly interface has taken a toll on it.

Start Menu All Set To Return In Windows 9

About Windows 9 Rumors

In this present age, where everything is at our fingertips with the help of internet, one cannot keep anything under wraps for long. Soon or later, every breaking news leaks online and then, it is discussed on various forums. We are talking here about the tech industry in particular, where big firms like Apple and Microsoft try their best to save the details about their latest products until they make the big announcement. Of course, in many cases, they themselves leak the information to build up the anticipation, which might result in more number of sales within the first week of the product’s official release.

Windows 9 details leaked

The latest leak in the tech industry is the details about the next Windows OS from Microsoft. This is surprising because Microsoft is expected to release yet another update to Windows 8 called Windows 8.1 Update 3 in 2015. They recently released a Windows 8 transfer app to help XP users move their data to the new Windows 8 or 8.1 OS. But, it seems that there might not be an Update 3 for Windows 8.1 after all.

Experts assume that Microsoft has given up on the failed Windows 8 project, and has already started working on the next generation Windows. The leaked screenshots of Windows 9 indicate the return of a full Start Menu back at its original position. According to leaked reports, this new OS project is right now called Windows Threshold.

However, you can easily assume that it will be released as Windows 9 rather than Windows 8.2 or some update, as Microsoft would want to disassociate their new OS from the failed Windows 8 franchise. In fact, the hurried development and the tentative 2015 release date show that Microsoft wants to put the Windows 8 fiasco behind them as fast as possible.

The leaked images show that they have finally listened to Windows users and have decided to bring back the Start Menu in full and not just the Start button with a few essential options as they did in Windows 8.1. Yet again, this will not be the same Start Menu as you had in Windows 7 or earlier. In Windows 9, you will see a combination of the classic Start Menu with the new Metro apps screen. The All Programs link will be replaced by an All Apps option, which will open a truncated form of the Metro apps screen.

It is also rumored that this might be made available to the Windows 8.1 users as a free update, along with a Windows 8 transfer app for moving data to the new platform.

Reports Indicate Stagnation In Windows 8 Sale

                    Windows 8 Help

It seems that Microsoft’s latest Windows 8 OS is approaching a standstill. Reports indicate that the adoption of rate of Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 have hit the lowest ever since the launch. Statistics published by Net Applications have also signalled the fate of Windows 8. The highlights of the report from Net Applications are given below.

According to the report, Windows 8 family of operating systems held 12.48 percent of the total Windows market share. It clearly indicates that the percentage hasn’t shown any sign of improvements over the last few months. According to experts, there are two factors responsible for the slow adoption of Windows 8, the popularity of Windows 7 and the hope that the upcoming Windows 9 operating system will outdo Windows 8.

It seems that people are no more talking about the much hyped Windows 8 features such as Windows 8 transfer and Windows Metro User Interface. In fact, the Metro UI has contributed to the low adoption rate of Windows 8. Windows 8 transfer was appreciated by many. Nevertheless, it remains an isolated feature.

TechBldr’s Joseph Awe opines that Microsoft comes up with flawless operating systems in every eight years. Microsoft released its flagship operating system Windows XP in 2001. Within a few months, the operating system crossed all the previous records and turned out to be the most popular Windows operating system until Windows 7 was released in 2009. Windows Vista, which was released prior to Windows 7 in 2007, could not allure many customers.

Many consider Vista to be the most flawed and criticized Windows operating system. But new reports indicate that Vista has been replaced by Windows 8 to be known as the most flawed Windows operating system.

How does the termination of XP support impact Windows 8 market share?

When the tech giant lifted Windows XP support on 8th of April, many believed that it was going to boost Windows 8 sale. But, what happened is just the opposite. In fact, the end of Windows XP support helped Windows 7 gain market share remarkably.

The tech world is looking forward now to the release of Windows 9, codenamed Windows threshold. There are rumours that Windows 9 would return most traditional Windows features including the Start button. Apparently, desktop/laptop users would immensely appreciate it. The ability of Windows 9 to fit to the device where it is being installed and optimize its features is another highlight that has caught the attention of many.
