Everything Great About Edge, Windows’ Killer New Browser.

Windows 10 is Microsoft’s excuse to unleash a powerful new Internet browser. “Cortana will be made available to Insiders (developers with Microsoft) in the coming weeks and to its consumers,” Microsoft India director Vineet Durani said.Cortana, Microsoft’s smart, snarky digital assistant, is one of the highlight features of Windows 10, imbuing the operating system with a sense of presence that never existed in previous versions of Windows.If you were hoping to use Cortana, Microsoft’s voice-activated digital assisstant in Windows 10 as soon as you upgrade, here’s some bad news: you’re going to have to wait.

Considering that Windows 10 will be a free upgrade for those on Windows 7 or Windows 8/8.1 (which is roughly 75 per cent of total global PC users), you can call Win 10 a winner already. Cortana’s natural language search capabilities rock, and her intelligent surfacing of news and notifications that matter to you help to tailor Windows 10 to suit your specific needs.

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. Internet Explorer, Microsoft’s previous browser, has gained a reputation as insecure, incompatible with many websites, and prone to crashing, and because of this Microsoft has fallen behind Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox in the race for the best Internet browser—and Edge feels like Microsoft’s attempt to avenge its fallen soldier. Microsoft, which unveiled its much-awaited Windows 10 operating system globally and in-built Cortana today, has held back from launching the Siri rival in India.

While Internet Explorer is not dead yet (Internet Explorer 11 comes with the new Windows 10, you just have to search for it), its memory will live on in Edge’s nearly identical icon. The more Cortana knows about you, your location, your friends, and your calendar and email, the better she’s able to provide a personally tailored experience. Fortunately, Microsoft provides you with tools to disable Cortana and erase your footprint in its servers if you’re so inclined. (And Microsoft deserve props for doing so!) Here’s how. To begin with, the Start Menu that users love is back. “Microsoft is keeping the Live Tiles it introduced in Windows 8, but it’s put them inside the Start menu.

That being said, if you are looking for a specific feature that you don’t see in periphery of the browser window, you’ll have to click the ellipses icon in the top right corner. Remember, Microsoft bought the biggest Windows Phone manufacturer, Nokia, so this means there isn’t any major partner who now specialises in making Windows Phone handsets. While an estimated 1.5 billion machines run Windows, Apple’s iOS and Google’s Android based smartphones and tablets have emerged as strong competition to the Redmond-based firm. 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. The next Windows version (I would suggest it might be called Windows 11) will no longer bother to support handsets, only tablets and PCs.” Windows 10 has a problem of trying to be everything for everybody.

It wants to keep its legacy users intact, but it also wants to become a new, cool OS built for the future. “The Windows 10 team looked at how they could engineer for a operating system that could last for the multitude of devices that are existing today and a multitude that will come into existence in the future,” said Vineet Durani, Director Windows Business Group at Microsoft India. You’ll want to press the Clear buttons in the “Clear personal info” and “Other Cortana data and personalized speech, inking and typing” sections. It will help IT leaders work in a better manner as there will be seamless syncing across devices,” Gartner Principal Research Analyst Vishal Tripathi said.

To add to the reading list, go to the page of your choosing, click the star icon (☆) to the right of the reading view icon, and then click the reading list icon. Its not only about the OS which is a concern for organizations it’s also about security, compatibility and manageability so many of them will adopt wait and watch strategy,” Tripathi said. 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. 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 search area remains in the Windows taskbar sans Cortana’s “Ask me anything” verbiage, but be warned: You won’t be able to use any of its Cortana-enabled services, like setting reminders, getting personalized news, receiving up-to-date travel info, or asking goofy questions.

If you ever change your mind and bring the digital assistant back to life via the search settings, don’t worry: Cortana will welcome you back with open arms. Wake up, MS! “Windows 10 pretends that there does not exist today an equally huge, and far more relevant, installed base of mobile devices that already has millions of apps people use every single day over and over,” Adam Hartung writes in Forbes. “Microsoft pretended as if there is no world other than Windows, and that a more robust Windows is something people can’t wait to use!
