Windows 10, Microsoft’s newest operating system, released July 29.
Here are 5 reasons to upgrade to Windows 10:
1. Faster and more interactive command center
The Action Center is a central place to view alerts and take actions that can help keep Windows running smoothly. Windows Action Center in Windows 10 will be redone and receive a face lift to fit the new metro theme. The Windows explorer has also been updated in the new operating system: now, when you are searching for a file, it is much faster and responsive than before.
2. Work flow improvements
In Windows 10, users have the ability to create multiple desktops with one screen. It will be a helpful tool for those who work for hours with one large screen. Instead of splitting your screen into two squished windows, you can run each window side by side at a normal window ratio without it getting scaled down. It stays proportional.
3. Cross system compatibility
Universal apps will allow the consumer to be able to work and play on their Xbox, phone, PC, or tablet devices with the same software, if it is compatible. This allows easier access to popular applications. While “out and about” you can continue what you were doing earlier, without having to convert any files to another operating system.
4. Internet Explorer is replaced
The new “Edge” browser will allow those who are on mobile or tablet devices, or those who just prefer the metro app, to have a more lite version of Internet that is faster. Edge is quicker, but doesn’t serve all of the plug-ins that Internet Explorer (11) does.
5. It’s FREE!
There are no downsides to installing Windows 10 from a Windows 7 or 8 operating system. Windows 10 will be a product that is a clear upgrade from the other Windows OS’s, and will be worth the upgrade for the enhanced user experience.
After Windows 10, users won’t pay for updates or upgrades, which means once you upgrade this one time, you will be done paying for your operating system upgrades until Microsoft changes its own outlook.
“If Microsoft wants consumers to update, it really means that Microsoft is going to have to give those consumers those updates for free. There’s really no other way to do it,” said Michael Silver of Gartner at the research firm’s annual technology conference.
