The world was waiting for Windows 10 to be released with great anticipation, and the first reviews demonstrate that this OS was worth waiting for. Not every version of Windows turns out to be great: for example, Windows Vista is still remember by Microsoft users as a rather disappointing system, while Windows 7 is known in computer history as one of the best operating systems. Even though Windows 10 was released only a short time ago, but it already proved to be a wonderful OS. Here are the best things about it!
If you’ve ever used Windows 8, you know that its Start menu could not be easily found, and the layout was all over the place. Microsoft fixed this problem by returning the Start menu button back to where it was: in the lower left corner. The new Start menu has the same tile system that you would find in Windows 8, but this time you can switch off this feature if you don’t like it.
Apple has already implemented the “digital assistant” feature in the iPhone by introducing Siri. Microsoft followed into Apple’s footsteps and added Cortana, its own digital assistant, to Windows 10. With the help of Cortana you can perform all kinds of task, including searching online, adding events to your calendar, and look for files on your computer.
Cortana speaks natural English, which means you can talk to your computer with Windows 10 the way you talk to your friends. Simply ask Cortana, for example, to “Find a nice restaurant nearby” and watch Windows 10 work its magic!
Internet Explorer has long been the world’s most widely used browser until Google Chrome surpassed it in popularity. IE is by no means an ideal browser: it had a lot of issues that many users were frustrated with. Microsoft decided to improve its situation with browsers by introducing Edge – a brand new browser available with Windows 10.
Edge is packed with useful features that let you comfortably and safely browse the Internet. Smooth rendering, tips from Cortana, easy sharing features, smart bookmarks and reading mode create a truly pleasant online experience.

This is a feature that is especially useful for people who do a lot of work on their computers. You probably know the situation where you have 10 to 15 windows open at once, which creates a mess out of your computer and makes it impossible to find what you’re looking for. Windows 10 solves this problem the only right way: by introducing virtual desktops.
By using virtual desktops you’ll be able to divide your system into several desktops and open applications separately in every window. With this system your computer will never get cluttered again, and you’ll become even more productive. You can also read about 10 apps that increase your productivity.
All Windows 10 reviewers agree in at least one thing: Windows 10 is the most secure version of Windows ever created. Two main features are responsible for security: Windows Defender and SmartScreen. Thanks to just two apps you’ll be able to use your computer safely and securely. Advanced protection against malware, viruses and phishing guarantees your PC being free from any type threats.
Microsoft Office is definitely the most popular office application pack. With Word, Excel and PowerPoint you can complete any work task. The new version of the Office offers an even better working experience. And the newly introduced OneNote application is a great way to take notes anytime you need to write something down. Currently Microsoft is getting ready to Release Office 2016, which will have even more useful features.
Great choice of apps
We’re used to having a big range of apps available for iPhone and Android. However, the selection of Windows 10 apps is able to pleasantly surprise everyone with its diversity and usefulness. Among the best apps you can get for Windows 10 we can recommend:
- The Weather Channel
- Candy Crush Saga
- Adobe Photoshop Express
- VSCO Cam
Overall, it’s safe to say that people all over the world were right to be excited about the release of Windows 10 – this newest operating system proved to be a helpful assistant to our everyday life, offering a lot of opportunities to work and have fun.
