Windows 10 Features And Reviews

After 30 years of excellence Windows has outdone all expectations with its latest and best product, Windows 10. The features of this product are none like before, changing the way we use technology. This article delves into windows 10 features and reviews each of them.

1: Start Menu:

First on our list of Windows 10 features and reviews is that the start menu is back though it has incorporated changes that make the experience better.  Just as in Windows 7 the left side contains the most frequently used apps and there is a shortcut for ‘all apps’.  There is also the full screen start menu, which is best to be used on tabs but it can be used on a PC as well.  It also allows you to pin tiles for certain features within your apps instead of creating shortcuts only for the apps. This is an innovative concept, taking shortcuts a step ahead.

2: Cortana:

Second on our list of Windows 10 features and reviews is that the Cortana feature and search feature are one and the same. As opposed to hiding the search option in the start option, Windows 10 places it upfront on the task bar. Cortana is the same as was on the Windows phone. To search for anything you can either type or ask.  This search feature is highly advanced in comparison to the previous windows with the discovery showing up results even when you type one word.  if there is anything that Cortana cannot answer directly, it will directly open the new edge browser with the results.  Cortana can also set alarms, take notes and practically be your virtual assistant.
