Live Tiles are found to be on the right side in the Start menu along with frequently used apps pinned to the left side like in Windows 7. As usual, the search bar can be found at the bottom. Other changes can be seen in the command prompt with improved user interface and support for keyboard shortcuts. One useful new feature incorporated is that you can now pin the Recycle Bin to the Task Bar.
