Review: What you need to know about Microsoft Windows 10.

There was a time not so long ago when the release of a new Windows operating system was greeted with general fanfare and more than a little consumer excitement.REDMOND, Wash., July 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ – Microsoft Corp. announced that Windows 10 will become available Wednesday as a free upgrade1 or with new PCs and tablets. Microsoft went wrong with Windows 8/8.1, and the all-new Windows 10 shows how the company gracefully accepted the mistake and made the right amendments. People around the world will celebrate the launch of Windows 10 Wednesday at fan celebrations in 13 countries and via a new yearlong initiative to celebrate people and organizations making a difference around the world.

The move to address that, Windows 8, wasn’t quite as successful as Microsoft would have hoped, and the company learned a valuable lesson as a result: never mess with the Start menu. Microsoft encourages people to share how they plan to #UpgradeYourWorld and to vote for a global nonprofit to receive a cash donation by simply mentioning the nonprofit in a post on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter and using the hashtags #UpgradeYourWorld and #vote. People can adapt to change over time, but try too much too quickly and there’s a high chance you’ll come off the worse in the ensuing battle. remember the time lots of users asked for the Desktop to become an app? A little bit of back tracking and a lot of rethinking later and we’ve come to Windows 10, Microsoft’s latest operating system that has been released in 190 countries. Windows 10 is the most secure Windows Microsoft has ever released, with enhancements to Windows Defender and SmartScreen to help safeguard against viruses, malware and phishing and innovations such as Windows Hello, which offers a fast, secured, password-free way to log in.3 Keeping up-to-date is also simple, as free updates will help people stay current with the latest features and security updates for the supported lifetime of the device.

However, it still needs some fixes. ” Unlike Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge isn’t stable – the browser crashes pretty often, and you’ll see that the browser freezes every now and then. Instead of expecting normal users to know they could just start typing anywhere on their home screens to search, Microsoft has provided Cortana as a visual cue. The all new Office Mobile apps for Windows 10 tablets are available today in the Windows Store.4 Built for work on-the-go, the Word, Excel and PowerPoint apps offer a consistent, touch-first experience for small tablets.

If you are upgrading from Windows 7 or 8, you can download the software from microsoft.com/windows10; if you need to buy a code, it’s a trip to your local electronics shop. But by clicking on a “My Stuff” tab that pops up at the bottom of the Cortana pane once a user starts typing a query, users can refine their results to local or Web,” Mary Jo Foley of ZDNet writes. “Her desktop incarnation isn’t tremendously different. The Pro version has business-level security, group policy management and remote login features, but neither version will allow you to play DVD movies natively. The biggest practical change I noticed is that in Windows 10 she supports the “Hey Cortana” feature on any system with a microphone—you can get her attention and give her commands at any time, just by saying “Hey Cortana.” This is only available on a limited number of phone models,” ArsTechnica writes. Designed for the precision of a keyboard and mouse, these apps will be optimized for large-screen PCs, laptops and 2-in-1 devices such as the Surface Pro.

Businesses will be able to control the frequency of their updates and select the features and functionality that are right for each group of their employees. That means 1 gigahertz or faster processor, 1 gigabyte or RAM and 16 gigabytes of hard drive space for the 32-bit version or twice the RAM and hard drive space for the 64-bit version.You’ll also need a graphics card and monitor capable of displaying at least 800 x 600 resolution. Windows 10 includes built-in, enterprise-grade security, so customers can replace passwords with more secure options, protect corporate data and corporate identities, and run only the software they trust. New management and deployment tools simplify device management, help lower costs, and enable companies to power their business with the enterprise strength of the Microsoft Azure cloud. The new software is designed to recognise the type of device you are using, such as whether it has a keyboard attached, and it will adjust things accordingly.

If you’re a PC veteran, then you’ll recognize Windows 10: It’s pretty much Windows 7, with Cortana, nicer typography, and a few new features.” Re/code’s Walt Mossberg states, “I regard Windows 10 as a solid, evolutionary operating system that’s likely to be a good bet for people who like Windows. And when the screen size is smaller it also displays things appropriately, to make sure you aren’t peering at a tiny app on a big screen and vice versa. The Windows Store offers one-stop shopping for popular free and paid apps, games, movies, TV shows and the latest music, which can work across all Windows 10 devices. The new Windows Store is the only store where people can use Cortana to control apps with their voice5 and get real-time notifications on their app tiles.

It lets the operating system play to the strengths of the hardware it’s running on, even as that hardware changes.” Talking about security, he further adds, “The Hello feature supports three kinds of biometrics: fingerprint, facial recognition, and iris scanning. This would pose an issue when trying to lock the computer—it would unlock from recognizing your face as soon as you locked it—but Microsoft has noticed that issue, and so there’s a short timeout period after locking the machine during which Hello can’t unlock it.” Looks like, Microsoft has done everything to bring back the familiar Windows feel that people love, and also combine it with new elements of its last and not-so-loved Windows 8 version. Instead of the staid, boring Start menu of Pre-Wi ndows 8 software, or the slight-step-too-far Start screen of Windows 8, you get something somewhere in the middle. Microsoft (Nasdaq “MSFT” @microsoft) is the leading platform and productivity company for the mobile-first, cloud-first world, and its mission is to empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more.

There’s also Microsoft Edge, the new browser that promises to be more intuitive, lightweight and a more than worthy replacement for Internet Explorer. It depends. if your computer is crucial for your business and you aren’t sure if all your software will run properly with the updated operating system, it might be best to wait a few weeks to see if any bugs rear their head early on.

The Windows Insider programme has been testing Windows 10 for some time, with ordinary users signing up to run the beta software, so it’s reasonably safe to assume that the final product is a stable version.
