Fox News reported that Windows 10 corrects everything that went wrong with Windows 8. That may be reason enough to upgrade. Since Windows 10 looks familiar to the previous versions of Windows, you will recognize the desktop and taskbar, but the icons, colors, backgrounds and lock screens appear modern and fresh. Even the system tray icons, including calendar, battery, volume and Wi-Fi, feel more inviting than in previous versions of Windows. Windows 10 added some smartphone-like touches that make it even more useful than past versions of the operating system. For example, notifications and quick settings are in the new Action Center, a one-stop place to see who’s emailed you, find app updates, adjust the brightness of your display, and all the other tasks you need.
The new default Internet browser in Windows 10 is much more modern than its predecessor Internet Explorer. It saves you from opening extra tabs by letting you perform Bing searches of words or locations with a quick right click. Windows 10 desktop lets you run a lot of programs at once with its “virtual desktops.”
The biggest makeover that most people like about Windows 10 is the Start menu. In addition to the usual Start menu features like power, apps and settings, the Start menu in Windows 10 also features a host of “Live Tiles.” You can see your upcoming calendar appointments, social media updates and even what’s new on Netflix.
Windows 10 responds to voice commands, tells you when it’s time to leave for your next appointment, and helps you find apps and useful information about your PC. The more you use Windows 10, it gets to know you and your habits. Window 10 will give suggestions for movies, news stories and places to eat when it gets to know your tastes. Windows 10 has a feature called “Windows Hello” that will learn your face and use it to log you into your computer without you needing a password.

It’s free, and it’s much better than what you’re using now. So, come on and try Windows 10. Microsoft gives quick and easy step-by-step instructions.
