Consumers who set up a Windows 8-powered tablet or PC using a Microsoft account will receive two e-mails with tips and tricks on using the just-launched operating system.

The first e-mail, entitled "Getting Started with Windows," offers advice on utilizing the OS' revamped Start screen through a brief description of Live Tiles.

Elsewhere, another section explains the different charms situated in the Charms bar. Two other sections tells users how to switch between or view several Windows 8 applications.

Each section displays a "Learn more" or "Discover more" link where users can find more details on the operating system, accompanied by a how-to video relating to a given feature on Microsoft's website.

The second e-mail, meanwhile, is dubbed "Personalize your Windows". It shows users how to customize their Start screen, download new apps from the Windows store, work with built-in apps and create a picture password.

I like that they are doing this. I've actually learned a few things from the emails.

I like how I got an email from Outlook.com stating that they are working hard to keep my inbox clean and then the next 10 emails I have are crap from Microsoft that I've never read. :)

For example, how to close an app on Surface (swipe from the top of the screen to the bottom works with a mouse too).

I unsubscribed. These "learn the basics" newsletters are too elementary, if I want to learn how to do something I just go directly to Google anyways.

This is probably a good thing for the noobs. It's not helpful to most of us here who are somewhat experts.
