What's Old Is New Again
It's been MIA for three years, but the Start menu is back in Windows 10. The new Start menu will be where you access all of your programs as well as providing quick links to important items including Settings and Power. It will also include dynamic resizable tiles that provide the latest information about weather, sports scores, social media messages and more.
Uniﬁed Control Panels & Settings
In previous iterations of Windows, if you wanted to make changes to your system settings, you were left having to make your customizations in multiple places. In Windows 10, most–but not all–of these changes can be made from the new Settings menu, which you access from the new Start menu. Hardcore users will want to dive into the Control Panel for more advanced tweaks, but most of us will beneﬁt from the new Settings app.
Universal Apps With Universal Apps
in Windows 10, Microsoft promises that the same application will run just ﬁne on any device running Windows 10, including a Windows 10 desktop, a Windows 10 tablet, a Windows 10 phone and even Xbox One.
Your Windows 10 Phone Can
Turn into a PC With a new feature called Continuum, smartphones running Windows 10 can transform into desktop PCs when connected to a larger screen. When connected to a larger screen, everything will look just like a full version of Windows 10–but it's all being powered by your phone–and your phone becomes the trackpad! Note that Microsoft says this feature may require a newer device, so your existing Windows phone may not support this feature.
Goodbye Internet Explorer. Hello Edge.
Windows 10 ushers in a new web browser to replace Internet Explorer. The new Edge web browser–available only on Windows 10– includes new features like Cortana voice commands and the ability to make annotations on websites (i.e. you can draw a circle around an item that you want on Amazon.com). There's also a new tab page that shows other websites and useful information like the weather.
Hey Cortana. Cortana may have
started out on Windows Phone as Microsoft's answer to Apple's Siri, but Cortana is now making her way to the desktop. In Windows 10, Cortana shows up as the search box next to the new Start menu. You can search the web or your local computer and results will appear above it. Just like on your Windows phone, you can perform more complex searches like movie times or ﬂight statuses. Microsoft touts Cortana on Windows 10 as a "whole new natural way of interacting with your PC."
Task View You can think
of Task View as the ability to have multiple, virtual desktops. For example, you can have one desktop for Microsoft Word and another for browsing the web on the new Edge browser in Windows 10. Task View can be used for more than just different applications in each View. You can also customize a Task View to contain the documents and applications that pertain to a speciﬁc task. You can access the new Task View feature in the Taskbar, right next to Cortana.
Snap Assist Snap is a
window management feature that allows you to arrange open windows by dragging and dropping a window to different edges of your screen or you can use a keyboard shortcut to arrange the position of the windows. The Windows 10 Snap Assist feature will display a thumbnail list of open windows in one of the empty spaces and allow you to click on a thumbnail and have that window snap into place.
Stream Xbox Games to a
Windows 10 PC With the new Xbox app for Windows 10, you can remotely control an Xbox One console from your Windows 10 PC. This means if you're on a local network, you can play an Xbox One game on a Windows 10 laptop in another room. Your Xbox One will be busy streaming that game so you won't be able to use it to watch Netﬂix, though. Xbox One controller, PC headsets and microphones are supported but mouse and keyboard input are not.
