 Jul 30, 2015

It has finally arrived! Microsoft Windows 10 originally code-named ‘threshold’ is the next operating system from Microsoft. With this operating system, Microsoft aims to unify all of its devices (game consoles, mobile, desktop and tablets).

Now let us discuss some of the new features of Windows 10:

Sophisticated start menu:

Microsoft has redesigned start menu in Windows 10, bringing back the classic start menu that we know and love from previous Windows iteration.

The Windows 10 Start menu will be highly familiar to many users, but with the exception of live tiles that was introduced in Windows 8. Live tiles can be resized, turn off and be used to unpin apps from the start screen.
