Windows 10 – First Look

Windows 10 providing more functionality.

Windows 10 will be the newest addition to the Windows family. You get an updated version that looks a bit different from what you’d expect from Windows. They are trying to make the platform more user-friendly, which tends to always be their goal as they move forward and make new operating systems for us to work on. In addition, they feel that this is the best Windows platform yet, but many have yet to see it in action.

What’s New in Windows 10

Here are some general things that we’ve learned and what you can expect if you choose to switch to Windows 10.

Easy of Use

They are trying to make the platform as easy as possible, with every available option for every kind of user that is going to be using the program on a regular basis. While this may seem like something that is hard to do, Microsoft has actually been listening to the things you do not like about Windows 8 and above. All of the familiar keyboard shortcuts are still there, to ensure that you do not have to re-learn certain buttons for getting from one place to another, which makes productivity much smoother overall.

Start Menu

They brought back the start menu, and kept the tiles but do not have so many of them. This makes the interface a little more friendly for those that wish to use either one of the options. They have mostly upgraded the productivity of the interface, compared to just the look of it. Many people enjoyed the look of the old Windows program, so why change something that was working once before? They just added some new features so that the new Windows is able to appeal to all that want to use it.

Touch

There were no additions for the touchscreen version of the Windows platform, which makes it quite frustrating for those with touch screens that wanted to be recognized during the remodel of the platform. However, maybe that will come out with the new Windows in the future.
There are virtual desktops that can be used throughout the system, allowing you to change and manipulate many different things including the look and the program itself. This makes it more user-friendly since you can have it anyway that you’d like.

When it comes to which Windows program you use, it all depends on your personal preference. You can continue to use Windows XP if you really want but it once again, depends on what you like and how you want to use your computer to your advantage. Windows 10 has some advantages, and it also has its disadvantages; you have to weigh the pros and cons and then choose.
