Enabling Hyper-V on Windows 8

You may have read that Hyper-V comes with Windows 8, but you’ve had a tough time trying to find it.  By default, Hyper-V is not enabled for Windows 8′s optional features, but you can enable it quickly.

Do this…

1. With the Start screen showing, just start typing this:  optionalfeatures.exe

2. Hit Enter and the Windows Features utility executes.

3. Put a checkmark in the box beside Hyper-V and click OK.

Enable Hyper-V

After a bit of thinking, locating files, and installation, Windows 8 will place your new Hyper-V tools on the Windows 8 Start screen.
