Microsoft wants to reign again with Windows 10: this are the keys to achieve it

June 5, 2015 3:22 am0 comments

Microsoft, far from neglecting its operating systems or from performing incomprehensible and uncomfortable changes – like many users have reported about the last systems released by the North American company – is more committed than ever in revitalizing Windows in the best way possible.

Windows 10, the most popular operating system’s next version will make its apparition in the following months, improving what we saw on Windows 8 and promising a chameleonic evolution that will allow it to exist in all kinds of current devices: PCs, smartphones, tablets and even consoles. Let’s get to know its strengths.

Windows, adapting to the environment and to its users

Windows 10

Years ago it used to users who would await with eager anticipation for the new features that the following Windows version would bring to their PCs. This time, interestingly, it’s the other way around.

Microsoft has listened attentively to criticism and gratefulness from all its users who have either used their Windows 8 system or Windows phone, and has decided to combine in a more effective and consensual way the capabilities and new features of its next Windows 10.

A single Windows 10

Microsoft knows perfectly that users not only demand a very powerful operating system and smaller mobile devices. Nowadays there are way more mobile devices (smartphones and tablets) than computers.

Therefore, releasing a single Windows 10 version for all kinds of devices and computers, sharing applications, ways of use, store and many more option, is a key point for Microsoft.

Synchronization between devices

Windows 10

Using online storage services is a fairly extended practice nowadays, but we have to have some kind of dexterity to be able to have such files in all our devices: our PC, our tablet, our smartphone, etc.

Windows 10 will sync on the cloud all the work environments where we install Windows 10, in other words, we will be able to share information and files between all our Windows devices in a tremendously simple way. A hit.

The desktop is now the main character

After the criticized jump Windows 8 took to the “modern interface”, which replaced the desktop as we knew it for a more simplified version and current home screen, Microsoft has realized that the users were not too thrilled about the change and decided to undo the changes.

Windows 10 will only incorporate a single place of start. Depending on the Windows device we’re using, the desktop will resize and its elements will adapt to the different screen sizes.

The Start Menu returns to Windows

Windows 10

Another of the changes that the Windows 8 users disliked the most was without a doubt the absence of the classic Start Menu that we had been using ever since Windows 95 and that we had already gotten used to.

Windows 10 fixes Microsoft’s blunder and brings along the lifetime Start Menu back to its original place. Furthermore, also included is what we could call a reduced Windows Logon screen.

Continuum adapts windows to your device

Windows 10

The system called Continuum, which will come included in Windows 10 is capable of adapting the applications content to the size of the device you’re using.

You will no longer need to drag an application in order to close it, as we had to do in Windows 8. Now, it will the hardware itself who will determine how the application is to be used. For instance: If you use a mouse, the sidebars will be disabled for those who don’t use it too often.

Cortana comes to your computer

Windows 10

Cortana is the virtual voice assistant that appeared in Windows Phone 8.1. With Cortana we can perform simple searches, see flight information, friend’s birthdays, perform voice dictation, control the music and open apps.

When will we be able to see Windows 10?

Windows 10 will come soon, specifically in the summer months this year, but there is not a set release day yet. Many computers purchased recently will be upgraded to this new version for free and so will the users who have a Windows 7, Windows 8.1 or Windows Phone 8.1 license.

The release of Windows 10 will take place in 190 countries and will be available no less than 111 different languages.
