Have you updated to Windows 10 yet?

Unless you’ve been living off the grid, I imagine everyone has heard about the newest version of Windows being touted by Microsoft who is offering a FREE upgrade until July 29, 2016. This isn’t a trial version but a complete full version.


Microsoft listened to their customers and have brought back the beloved Start menu that many of you remember from Window 7.  Many people were very focal in their disdain for Windows 8 and the impossibility of trying to find how to access the desktop screen. In combining the Windows 8 apps tiles with the shortcut links of Windows 7, the best of both worlds are now at your fingertips.

As busy business owners, having a personal assistant is something we all would love to have. Cortana, the digital assistant that was greatly adored and exclusive to the Windows Phone is now available in Windows 10. This nifty digital assistant is standing by to assist you through voice or text commands. Instead of tediously searching through your hard drive, simply ask Cortana to find what you need.

When it comes to browsers, they have created a new browser called Edge which is designed for efficiency and speed. Integrating Edge with Cortana increases your browsing capabilities with enhanced linking for sharing information with your customers and friends. Microsoft made a good choice in listening to their customers yet again.

Have you been wishing for dual monitors? Well, wait no more. Task View is Microsoft’s answer to that dilemma. It is capable of creating multiple virtual desktops which can be uniquely customized. Add in a revamped Mail and Calendar apps as well as a new Action Center, Windows 10 will meet the needs of even the most dedicated power user.
