Windows 10

Windows 10 is an operating system for both desktop and mobile devices developed by Microsoft Corporation. The company had officially announced the Windows 10 on September 30, 2014, and released it to masses around the globe on July 29, 2015.

Windows 10 comes straight after Windows 8.1 where the company skipped Windows 9 altogether for numerous reasons, including it being such a huge update that it easily goes beyond a single number upgrade.

First Technical Preview for Windows 10 was released on October 1, 2014, in an effort to get feedback from users willing to try the new OS. The consumer side of the OS was revealed on January 21, 2015, including the plans for mobile and gaming platform. It was only during BUILD 2015 conference when the final unveiling of the Windows 10 took place.

First Technical Preview of Windows Phone 10 was pushed on February 12, 2015, to numerous Lumia devices. The OS was codenamed ‘Threshold’ internally.

Windows 10, unlike its predecessor, offers more freedom to choose between Start Screen and the Start Menu. Start Screen is better suited for touchscreen devices including tablets, while Start Menu is more useful on desktop PCs and laptops. A new feature of Windows 10 named ‘Continuum’ allows users to automatically switch between desktop mode and the tablet mode depending on the connectivity of a mice or a keyboard. Users are also allowed to choose between Start Menu or Start Screen and set any of these two as their default option.

Other features new to Microsoft’s latest Windows installment include an all new Start Menu – which is actually a combination of traditional Windows Start Menu with added room for Windows applications, support for multiple desktops, modern apps can now be re-sized on desktop, new snapping apps options, task view button, and an improved file explorer to find the files quickly. Cortana, Microsoft’s digital voice assistant, has also been integrated into the OS.

Microsoft has also provided an application platform and a store for all the apps to the developers. Applications can run on all devices regardless of their form-factor.
