Windows 10 – What to expect

By February 2, 2015No Comments

Rather unsurprisingly, the Start button is back in Windows 10!! Surely, omitting it from Windows 8 would rank as one of the biggest mistakes made by a large corporation in recent history

One of the more interesting features to come with the new OS is Continuum, which changes the appearance of the operating system depending on how you’re using it. For example, if you’re using a touchscreen, it will look and behave differently to the way it would with a keyboard and mouse.

Believe it or not, Microsoft’s Internet Explorer is almost 20 years old. It will?be overshadowed in Windows 10 by a slimmed down version of browser called Spartan which will be more like Chrome i it functionality and appearance.

Microsoft’s virtual assistant, called Cortana, will be on the desktop as well and will have voice recognition as part of its feature list.

Microsoft have promised greater integration between its desktop software and its mobile software. ?They’re even going to call them both Windows 10. How sensible!!

We’re looking forward to the arrival of Windows 10. At this stage, there’s no mention about a pricing strategy but one news site last week hinted at Microsoft making Windows 10 a free upgrade for Windows 7 and Windows 8 owners.

Microsoft have more information on the changes here…
