Windows 10 - Release Date - July 29, 2015

Windows 10 – The Latest Microsoft Offering

Windows 10 is a personal computer operating system created by Microsoft as a part of the Windows NT family. Microsoft released Windows 10 as a follow-up version of Windows 8.1 on July 29 2015.

Some Features about Windows 10

Features of Windows 10 include the return of the Start menu, a new browser, Edge, which replaces the longtime standard Internet Explorer, a new inclusion Cortana which is a virtual assistant analogous to Apple’s Siri (#ad), and more.

Start Menu

If you are using Windows 8 and hate its full-screen Start interface, you’re in luck with Windows 10: just like the good old days, the new Start menu locates on the left side of the screen.

And if you liked Windows 8’s approach, it can still satisfy you: you can still access Live Tiles and the touch-centric Metro interface from a panel on the right side of the Start Menu.

You can also utilize Classic Shell and hide all o the unnecessary junk that comes with Windoze 10 by default

Task View

There’s a button that lives on the taskbar which is called Task View. Click it, and you can get a quick look at all of your open files, windows, and desktops… in one word, it will display all open windows and allow you to switch between them, or switch between multiple work-spaces.

Microsoft is trying to use Windows 10 as a unified operating system for a variety of different devices, including PCs, phones and video game consoles…and once again failed miserably.

Microsoft Edge

If you ask that is Internet Explorer still around, the answer will be no and yes. Why? Because debuted Internet Explorer is replaced by the brand-new Microsoft Edge which is set as the default web browser in Windows 10. Internet Explorer is still a part of Windows for compatibility reasons.

Edge includes tools like Web Note, which allows you to markup websites (for example: click the button, and you’ll be able to annotate what you’re looking at and share your notes through email, or through OneNote), and Reading View, which allows you to view certain websites without the clutter of ads.  Install Ublock  in Firefox and Chrome to block all ads. The browser integrates directly with Cortana.

This being said, Firefox and Chrome are still much better browsers


Windows 10 incorporates Microsoft’s intelligent personal assistant, Cortana, (LMAO) which supports both text and voice input. Say “Hey, Cortana” after turning on the voice recognition feature and you can issue commands on your PC (personal computer).

Cortana which was first introduced with Windows Phone 8.1, and many of its features are a direct carryover from Windows Phone, including integration with Bing, setting reminders, notebook features for managing personal information, and searching for files, playing music, launching apps, and sending emails. Cortana is set as a universal search box located between the Start and Task View.

In other words, disable it and stick with your Google calendar on your Android phone (#ad).
