Cool new features of Windows 10

Windows Store – download applications securely The windows store had a rocky start and a lot of the modules were not working and the store would always air out. Since then Microsoft has made many improvements in the windows store. Some of the features of the windows store include; user account settings, applications not limited to games, device management, and the ability to send gift cards. The device management allows you to view the devices your account is connected to and give you the option to view which applications you downloaded on each device. Through the store you may also view your regular Microsoft profile.   Start Menu for desktop users is back The start menu has came back with a brand new look but still familiar to the old version. In the new start menu you can scroll and view all of the applications instead of going into an all programs folder to see different applications. They added a few new and useful features integrated with the start menu. One of those is the pin, more, or uninstall option when you right click on an application. The pin option will allow you to pin the application right the task bar. The more option will give you settings for the application and the properties. The uninstall option is pretty self explanatory. The start menu now comes with live tiles. These are applications that are active or interactive with your accounts. You can change the view of these and select which live tiles you want to view and which ones you don’t want to view. The search tab works virtually...

New Features of Windows 10

Latest posts by Timothy Jones (see all)

For the most frequent time Windows has been very well kept and always ahead of their devices and software always updated.  Instead Microsoft is a very different company mainly because they focus more on their software other than their products. For example other companies that focus on using IOS software only update their products. The companies don’t focus on their product in particular. The main features that Microsoft makes is the Windows store. The windows store lets you download apps securely and fast and easy to use. Microsoft makes sure always that their apps are always kept to date and made to work with their products current software version. The windows stores let’s you download apps such as Entertainment,Games, and weather apps. The apps simply can be downloaded from using your personal Microsoft account which is again very secure. The Windows store is the most unique tool that Windows software has to offer. Another great feature for Windows is the start button feature that was perhaps thought to have been gotten rid of by the latest update of Windows 10. It actually stayed and it’s very useful for users who used to use a desktop version of the oldest version of Windows 7. This start button is quite similar but just a tad different in comparison. The start button has a vary of certain ways to access apps like the weather, the date and time, and even games can be accessed for the start button. The start button now includes a new way to find the things you need by simply typing in the search bar located on the...

Project: New Features of Microsoft Windows 10

  There has been many different versions of Windows over the past 20 years, the latest being Windows 10. Before Windows 10, Windows released Windows 8, which some people liked but many people thought Windows 8 had its problems. One big thing that is back in Windows 10 that was missing from its previous version 8, is the start menu for desktop. All of the previous versions of Windows had a start menu on the desktop to quickly access programs, applications, and documents on your computer. But, on Windows 8, that is one feature that they decided to change and leave out. I always get the new versions of Windows when they come out, as it is my favorite operation system. So when I got windows 8 I was confused, and a little upset that there was not a start menu feature. But on the new Windows 10 the start menu is back and I think it is safe to speak for all Windows lovers that they love that the start menu is back. For me, the start menu is an easy tool to navigate throughout your whole computer finding what you need. They also took the idea of the tiles from windows 8, and incorporated it into the start menu which I like. You can take your applications and programs and organize them within the start menu creating different tile groups which I think is a good idea. Another new feature Windows 10 has is the new Windows store which comes downloaded on your computer with Windows 10. It is very easy to use and navigate to find...

Differences between Windows 7 and Windows 10 for Enterprise Support Users

The Information Week article called, “Windows 10: Microsoft Attempts A SaaS Model” by Larry Loeb explains that a key change in Windows 10 Enterprise is that Microsoft will no longer be charge per license. Instead Microsoft will charge per device to accommodate growth, the cloud and mobility sectors. In addition, an Information Week article called “Windows 10 Vs. Windows 7: What Enterprise IT Needs To Know” by Curtis Franklin explains how Windows 10 Enterprise differs in comparison to Windows 7 Enterprise and other versions. Windows 10 as a Service is a feature that is included in Windows 10 Enterprise. The purpose of WAaS is to simplify the process of upgrading and updating. I think that there has to be some accommodations made, especially because security threats constantly evolve. Microsoft has to develop solutions which may involve totally new builds and operating systems. Those upgrades have to be pushed to servers and individual users. So economically I understand how a per-user charge would be more suitable, compared to collective usage charges. An article called “Battery Saver” on Microsoft’s Hardware Dev Center website explains that the Battery Saver feature will automatically activate when the device percentage falls below 20%. Battery Saver also prevents applications from running in the background and it limits other application activity, to limit consumption of battery usage while the battery level is below 20%. An article listed on Microsoft’s Windows IT Center called, “Power Management for Network Devices in Windows 7” explains that there are features that can be configured to manage power on a network. For example the Low Power on Media Disconnect feature places the...
