Windows 10 is out and the first question everybody is asking is;
What is the eye catching top 10 features of windows 10 which you must know?
Basically Windows 10 combines the best of Windows 8 salient features such as super-fast startup, improved security & user friendly interface. The best and unique features of windows 10 are listed below one by one. Hope these will help you out in better understanding of windows 10.
Task view and virtual desktops
The best feature of windows 10 is that it handles virtual desktops to the best and it is a great advantage windows 10 has gained because MAC OS X and Linux users have enjoyed this feature for a very long time. To enjoy this feature, click the task view icon on the taskbar (immediately to the right of the Search box), or hold down the Windows key (abbreviated throughout as Win) and Tab.
When installing windows 10, make sure you select custom install so that you can modify the privacy settings and not share any personal information or date if asked. Windows 10 is not free at all; it is free only for windows 8 and 7 users.
Finally another useful feature has been added to windows 10; users can now save and print file in PDF format. Another awaited feature is now added to the bank.
Another feature is about WiFi security and password. It does not allow access to anyone unless you specifically give out the password. Wi-Fi Sense does not share credentials from networks that are secured with additional authentication protocols, such as corporate networks that use 802.1x EAP. However, if your office Wi-Fi is secured with a simple WPA/WPA2 key, you probably shouldn’t share that network with Wi-Fi Sense
Another brilliant feature in windows 10 is that the start menu is fully customizEable as you want. It not only has all the features of windows 8.1 and windows 7 but it is really appealing to eye as well. I admit the first thing I did is unpin all of Microsoft’s tiles and then shrink the size of the menu so it looks a lot like Windows 7. You can enjoy by doing this as well.
Windows 10 is intelligent enough to begin the power saving features and start closing background services when you are running on low battery, another needed feature for users.
These are the keyboard shortcuts one can use in daily routine for better and easy working.
- Windows Key-Tab (Task View)
- Windows Key-Right-Up (Moves app to top right quadrant)
- Windows Key-Ctrl-Left or Right (virtual desktop)
- Windows Key-Ctrl-D (new virtual desktop)
- Windows Key-Ctrl-C (Cortana listening)
- Windows Key-S (Daily Glance for weather, news, sports)
- Windows Key-Ctrl-F4 (closes virtual desktop)
- Windows Key-Up and Down (snap apps to top or bottom of screen or maximizes)
XBOX supporting feature
Another most awaited feature for the gamers. One can use windows 10 to log into your XBOX live account. First you have to allow it from XBOX settings and then on PC in XBOX application
The users of windows 8.1 and android users would know this feature. They can drag down from the top of the screen the notification centre. Windows 10 has moved this panel from top to right with notifications from various apps at the top and at the bottom many settings button as the user may like.
If you need to arrange a lot of windows and you don’t have multiple monitors, here is a new feature windows 10 have introduced; you can put them on multiple virtual desktops. The user can use Alt-Tab to move between apps as usual and then Windows-Ctrl and the left and right arrow keys to move between desktops. This would make the work easy for users working on multiple projects.
