As of the 29th July 2015 Windows 10 has been available for purchase and for upgrade on Windows 7 and Windows 8/8.1 machines. Here are 10 reasons Windows 10 is the best Microsoft Operating System yet.

Please bare in mind that although we think Windows 10 is great, we do not recommend using the free upgrade from Windows as we do not recommend upgrading operating systems as it can cause an array of issues. However, if you are interested in changing your operating system to Windows 10 please do get in contact! 

1. It is free for the first year*

*For many Windows 7 and 8/8.1 users. See here for more information on eligibility and excluded operating systems.

2. Brand new internet browser: Edge.

Faster, safer and integrated Cortana. What more could you want?

3. Cortana – Your personal assistant.Windows-10-Cortana-2

Cortana can remember things on your behalf, manage your personal details and suggest articles which might interest you. Oh and she’s voice activated.

4. Xbox streaming.

You can play your Xbox games on your Windows 10 PC, laptop, tablet or phone. Enough said.

5. New Start menu

Microsoft listened when the masses said they missed the start menu in Windows 8. The Windows 10 start menu looks like Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 had a baby and it’s beautiful.

Comandpromt6. Command prompt has had an overhaul

Windows 10 finally makes Command Prompt a little more usable, with new “experimental” options including copy and paste functionality, resizable windows, text wrapping, and an opacity slider.

7. Virtual Desktops and split view

Microsoft are now inline with Linux and Mac which have been offering virtual desktops for a while now. This means you can have a work screen (word documents and emails), a project screen (task lists and Excell) and a home screen (music and Facebook) or any combination that works for you. Productivity will be maximized!

8. It’s an OS for all devices

Windows 10 is available for many different devices. It is one operating system adapted for all meaning that compatibility and integration is easier than ever.Windows-10-wallpaper-New-Logo

9. Windowed Modern Apps

Windows 8.1 didn’t allow apps to be windowed unless they were old. Windows 10 allows you to have any of your apps in Windows!

10. Windows Hello

Windows Hello is the new entrance to your machine. Windows Hello presents you with the options to use 2 factor and biometric authentication! That having been said the facial recognition works by using a special Intel RealSense 3D camera which are not currently available. Although it will be worth the wait; an additional feature is that unless you blink or move your face when using the facial recognition it will fail meaning people cannot use a photo of you to access your machine!
