What are the benefits of upgrading to Windows 10?



Posted: June 4th, 2015

Windows 10 is going to be launched this summer but what are the benefits of upgrading? 

One of the benefits of Windows 10 is that it is a free upgrade from Windows 7 or Windows 8.1.  This means that if you currently have one of these operating systems – you will get all the latest and greatest features Microsoft has to offer for free.

Microsoft have introduced some new features including the addition of the multiple desktop feature which enables you to work off different virtual desktops on one machine without having to minimise any of your programs.  This will make things easier when working on different projects and will also be handy for employees as they can keep their personnel and work desktops separate yet on the same computer.

The start menu, one of the most loved features that was removed in Windows 8.1, is coming back in the latest upgrade and promises to be new and improved for the new release.  The new start menu will allow you to access apps, search for content and also pin contacts and websites to make them easier to access.  Many will see the return of the start menu as a massive plus point for Windows 10 over Windows 8.1.

Another benefit of this new operating system is that ‘Cortana’ is coming to our computers too.  Cortana is a personal assistant and knowledge navigator feature and is currently available on all Windows phones and with this new update it will be introduced to your computers too.  Cortana will be able to provide answers to questions, remember things you have done on the computer, and will also link to the new ‘Spartan’ internet browser which is set to replace Internet Explorer.
