I know it’s scary upgrading to a new operating system, it took me eight months before I took the plunge and upgraded to Windows 10. Now looking back, I don’t know why I waited so long. Microsoft has made several improvements to the new OS.
One of the improvements that made me jump for joy is the start button is back! Once again I can quickly access my setting, apps, and locate the shutdown feature easily just by selecting the Start button on the taskbar.
The Store is a one-stop shop for music, videos, games, and apps.
You can try out an app before you buy it, or pick a free one. Your Windows 10 apps will work on all your Windows 10 devices. The try it out before you buy it is an amazing feature. Now you can see if an app has all the features you need before you spend your hard-earned cash.
Cortana helps you stay organized!
Cortana, your personal assistant, is on your desktop. Ask her to set up a meeting or send an email to a friend. She can even find your files for you and give you traffic updates. Select the search box and type what you want Cortana to do, or just select the microphone to talk with her instead.
Microsoft Edge is the first browser that lets you take notes, write, doodle, and highlight directly on webpages. Cortana integrated in Edge, so she can help you find things.
So far Microsoft 10 has impressed me, and I’m so glad I upgraded. If you want to upgrade for free, you only have until July 28th, 2016 before you have to purchase the operating system.
What do you have to lose, if you don’t like it you can revert back to your old operating system within thirty days of the upgrade?
Now I will warn you some custom software might not work with Windows 10 yet, but still give it a try, if you do have software that’s not compatible with Windows 10, I’m sure it won’t be long before they have an upgrade that is compatible. You might want to call the vendor to see when they will have an update on the software in question.
In closing Windows, 10 is awesome, and I feel more at home using it than I have with past Windows operating systems.
