Microsoft Releases Free of charge Windows ten Download With Cortana …

Here’s the Windows 10 preview user forum on Microsoft’s site.

Tech site Mashable noted that at least for now, only Windows Insiders can download and install the new Windows build, though Microsoft is still accepting signups. “While Microsoft has yet to officially announce a public release date for Windows 10, most expect it to arrive before the end of this year. As we noted here, Microsoft has taken a cue out of Apple’s book which has been given OS X and iOS upgrades away for free, to ensure that users don’t have to shell out money for an OS.

Of the new features in this latest build of the Windows 10 preview, one of the major ones is the introduction of the first bits of Microsoft’s “Continuum,” which helps convert the OS from desktop mode to tablet mode. If your PC or laptop is running Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 and your Windows phone has the Windows Phone 8.1 OS, you will get a free upgrade to the latest version of Windows 10 – in the first year. And now, the forum for user feedback is open. “We’re well way on our way to making Windows 10 the largest-ever open collaborative development effort Microsoft has ever shipped,” said Windows honcho Terry Myerson in his Windows 10 blog post on Wednesday. “Since we launched the Windows Insider Program in September, we’ve been joined by 1.7 million Windows Insiders, who have delivered over 800,000 pieces of feedback.

It’ll trigger when you detach the keyboard from a Surface Pro 3 for instance, or you can trigger it manually, like this: Then there’s the long-awaited Cortana on desktop. No more Windows Phone, it’s all the same: Unity across operating systems is something that Apple and Google have been going on about for sometime and Microsoft also clearly believes that this is the way forward. You can get her attention by saying “Hey Cortana” at any time, if you turn it on in settings: And even if you aren’t using voice control, Bing-powered Cortana is the new face of internal (and web) search from the desktop, from finding your files to searching Wikipedia to launching applications: The Charms bar—that thing you swipe in from the left—is still around, but now it’s the notification center.

Also tablet users can forget the horror of having to deal with something like a new Windows RT on their devices, which received terrible user feedback. Windows 10 will ensure that desktops, mobiles, laptops, tablets, 2-in-1 devices will all run the same Windows 10 OS, which will be optimised based on the platform. Now when you’re in tablet mode, older desktop-only apps will respond to the same gestures as tablet apps, so it’s easier than ever to just use your fingers on the go: Windows 10 is definitely coming along, but this is still a preview for sure. This is great news for those who are heavily invested in the Windows eco-system and for app developers who won’t have to create a separate app for mobile or tablet.

But even just a little time with this new previews proves that Windows 10 really really has the potential to be the hybrid future operating system we deserved all along. I first tried to turn Microsoft’s digital assistant on via the settings menu, but that doesn’t work.) Cortana will want to access your calendar appointments, contacts, and location, among other things—pretty par for the course, especially if you’ve used Cortana on a Windows Phone.

Cortana for Windows: Microsoft has gone a step ahead of Apple by bringing its personal voice-assistant Cortana to all Windows 10 devices, including desktops and laptops, which is a massive plus point. My natural instinct was to raise my voice and begin insistently saying “Hey Cortana” over and over again—just as my children do when they want my attention. Even then, a lengthy query such as “Who will win, the New England Patriots or the Seattle Seahawks?” (a query that works fine on Windows Phone) failed to work. All pictures taken on the devices, as well as photos on One Drive will be merged together and the app will automatically delete the duplicate files to reduce the clutter. One other note: To launch another Cortana query, you have to shift focus away from Cortana by tapping another area of the screen or by doing something else.

Asking general fact-based queries worked fine: Cortana reported her answer in the Cortana box if she “knew” the answer, such as details on the tallest building in the world. Hello Project Spartan: Microsoft unveiled its Project Spartan at the event, which is indeed a new browser which comes with Cortana built in with its contextual searching. Reading mode in Project Spartan, similar to the reading mode in Apple’s Safari, will put articles in a layout that gets rid of all the unnecessary elements on a page.

According to a blogpost, the company wrote that “Spartan loads the IE11 engine for legacy enterprise web sites when needed.” Essentially enterprise websites that older technologies designed only for Internet Explorer, such as custom ActiveX controls and Browser Helper Objects will load on Internet Explorer, which will also be available on Windows 10. Internet Explorer will use the same dual rendering engines as Spartan, ensuring web developers can consistently target the latest web standards, says the blog post. It seems obvious (right?) that Cortana on Windows Phone and the PC will eventually have the same functionality, and exchange information back and forth.

But while the new Build 9926 is stable enough in general, Cortana is like Eliza Doolittle in My Fair Lady: She’s going to need some refinement before she can enter polite society. A new feature will allows users to record 30 seconds of gameplay which can be sent across to Xbox Live so that Xbox users can watch it as well.Windows 10 also brings cross-play, which lets users play with a friend on an Xbox One while they are using a Windows 10 PC.
