Does the Windows 8 SDK contain information such as conceptual information and help for keywords that can give an insight into Windows 8 for developers?

Is it similar in functionality to the SharePoint 2010 SDK where we can search for a particular topic and it enables Help for the topic and shows results rated by importance?

Did you think to use Google before asking this, you are expected to do some research before asking questions here on SU. – Moab Oct 30 '12 at 4:46

Why is this not in your question?, you can edit your question to be more specific, and you will likely get upvotes for a good question, which this has the potential to be one. – Moab Oct 30 '12 at 14:48

You can find the Windows 8 SDK here.

However, there is one major difference from previous releases of the Windows SDK:

"The Windows SDK no longer ships with a complete command-line build environment. You must install a compiler and build environment separately."

You will need to download and install Visual Studio 2012 Express if you need a compiler.

The download page is here: Windows Software Development Kit (SDK) for Windows 8

Use this SDK to:

  1. write Windows Store apps (only on Windows 8)
  2. using web technologies (such as HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript)
  3. deploy desktop applications
  4. .NET Framework 4.5 SDK
  5. Samples to download and test
  6. Integrated DirectX SDK The DirectX SDK is now part of the Windows SDK.

You can download samples and change them as you desire.
