Windows 10 – Out July 2015

July 22, 2015

The next version of Windows will be available this month, free of charge to current users of Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1

Windows 10 returns a menu available in the bottom left-hand area of the screen, heavily used before Windows 8 but removed from Windows 8.

Windows 10 uses Cortana, Microsoft’s voice-based virtual assistant.  It will be able to do more that search and provide a response.  It can also be used to navigate Windows and work within applications.

Microsoft has discontinued Internet Explorer, the web browser it has had since the 90s.  Instead Windows 10 has a new browser called Microsoft Edge.  It is designed to be more secure.  And there are hopes it will be more compatible with web sites that previously only worked on Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox.

What benefits will there be for your organization?  Contact Emerson Technologies and we can help you make an evaluation.
