Want to know what all the fuss is about? Here’s a quick look at how Windows 10 compares to some previous versions of Windows:
The Windows 10 Difference
Microsoft Windows 10 takes the familiar feel of the Windows system and makes it better than ever. Microsoft have brought back the famous Start menu and made it easier for you to expand and customise how you use it. A more streamlined and responsive structure makes the familiar more simple and much faster, while ‘InstantGo’ maintains your network connectivity even when you’re in standby mode – allowing the system to update in the background and keep it ready to resume instantly. Windows 10 also balances your processor and memory resources so your apps and web browsers respond super-fast.
Want to customise the way you interact with Windows? Windows 10 gives you the options of voice, pen and gesture navigation so you can mould the entire experience to your personal style and needs.
The Start and Live tiles give you the ‘at-a-glance’ overview of all the things that matter to you, and Windows Hello gives you the option of adding hardware like fingerprint scanners and biometric sensors for extra security.
Take your files with you wherever you go thanks to OneDrive. When you upgrade to Windows 10 you’ll get 15GB of free OneDrive cloud storage, so you can keep all your favourite photos, important files and priority documents in the one place that you can access any time via an internet connection.
Windows 10 features a number of great built-in apps that work across all of your devices. Maps, Photos, Mail & Calendar, Music, Video, People and Messaging have got your essential functions covered, giving you all the practical functionality you want without needing to wait to download and install additional apps. Like to multitask? Windows 10 lets you snap up to four apps on the screen at once in a single view, and you can create new virtual desktops for grouping or extra space.
Get the Edge and Improve Your Productivity
Windows 10 features Microsoft Edge – the all-new web browser that has been built to provide a superior experience. Get things done quicker by writing directly on webpages and sharing your mark-ups; read your favourite blogs and news sites effortlessly without the distractions in ‘Reading View’; and get personalised search recommendations in the address bar so you can find your online destination quicker than ever.
Works Across All Your Devices
Windows 10 ensures your apps both work and look great, whatever device you are using them on.
If your main machine for serious work and play is an all-in-one, then you’ll love the new experience that Windows 10 can bring. With a range of hardware peripherals and the ability to customise your mode of interaction and navigation, you can experience a new dimension of flexibility and serious performance.
It’s that go-to device you take everywhere for business and play, and now with Windows 10 you get a faster, more secure and personal experience than ever. Boot-up and loading speeds are now quicker than ever, so whether you’re in a client meeting, giving a presentation, working to a deadline or just drafting your next novel in the local cafe, Windows 10 will have you up and running in next to no time.
For when you want the focus of a laptop and the freedom of a tablet in the same machine, a 2-in-1 is ideal – and Windows 10 has the flexibility to match whatever you want to do, letting you do your best work anywhere. Microsoft Edge really comes into its own with a 2-in-1 device, with the touchscreen allowing you to write directly on webpages so you can design, edit and share in a way that suits your creative process.
