Windows 8 is an operating system developed by Microsoft and released on October 26, 2012, for devices such as computers and tablets. There are 4 distributions of Windows 8, one for different users and devices. Windows 8 eliminated the classic theme and the Aero effect of Windows 7 and Windows Vista and added a Modern UI that coexisted with the traditional Windows interface.
Windows 8 brings a number of new features, most notable of which is Windows To Go (WTG), which allows you to install a fully functional Windows operating system to an USB drive and run Windows from that drive. You may know that Windows To Go is an enterprise feature of Windows 8, so it’s officially only for education and enterprise editions of Windows 8. Unfortunately, not everyone has an education or enterprise edition of Windows 8, so it seems that the dream of creating a Windows 8 To Go cannot be fulfilled.
Well, don't worry, a powerful and reliable Windows To Go Creator software Hasleo WinToUSB has been developed by Hasleo Software, it offers more powerful features than the Windows To Go Creation Wizard built into Windows. With it, you can easily create a Windows 8 To Go from any edition of Windows 8.
