THE NEW VERSION OF MICROSOFT’S OPERATING SYSTEM, WINDOWS 10, THAT IS USED BY 1.5 BILLION USERS IS NO LONGER PROMOTED AS A NEW PRODUCT.
Windows 10, which was promoted at the end of last month to the world, offers many new features as well as the Start Menu that many users were accustomed. The new system that is going to be used in smart phones and tablets besides computers is going to work with virtual reality headgear, game consoles, small devices that can be attached to TVs, and some other wearable devices.
The company offers Windows 10 free to the licensed users of Windows 7 and Windows 8.1. The new computers that are going to be manufactured from now on are going to come with Windows 10 operating system. The successors of the system are going to be updated online.
We have listed some prominent features of the new system:
THE START MENU IS BACK
The Start Menu that Windows 8 didn’t have returns with Windows 10; moreover, it has a full screen mode that consists of the lively tiles of Windows 8. This feature enables users to access almost any other features, programs, applications of Windows by search. Enabling users to personalize the system more than its previous versions did, the new version of the operating system is going to appeal the users.
VOICE ASSISTANT CORTANA
The idea of a digital assistant entered into our lives in recent years. Apple and Google have set the first examples of the system. However, Cortana, Microsoft’s digital assistant, draws attention to its useful features. Cortana that can receive voice commands via computer, tablet or smart phone is perfect to organize your agenda, remind your appointments, read your e-mails, make phone calls, and send messages as well as making online search or assisting you in some other areas. Unfortunately, there won’t be a Turkish version at first; however, the studies continue to materialize it.
A NEW AND FAST WEB EXPERIENCE WITH EDGE
Microsoft protects Internet Explorer but by means of a new web scanner targets to protect especially the home users. Edge came through the first trial tests with its simple interface as well as its high speed and being able to display any kind of web site with no trouble.
ANDROID APPLICATIONS CAN BE USED WITH WINDOWS
Windows 10 is going to be able to run the old Windows applications and software by means of backwards compatibility. The system can also convert Android applications to Windows easily. Thanks to this feature, it will be possible to use many mobile applications on devices that operate on Windows in short time. Another feature that is called Continuum can convert multifunctional devices to a computer such as tablets with removable keyboards or smart phones that can be synchronized with Bluetooth keyboards and vice versa. This is going to enable users to experience a trouble free usage of all applications on all devices.
HIGH LEVEL OF SECURITY WITH HELLO
We leave behind the systems that we enter through user name and passwords or simple fingerprint scanners. The new feature called Windows Hello is going to be much safer to use with the new generation infrared shooting, and more skilled fingerprint and retina scanners. When the user sits in front of the device, the system is going to turn on automatically through the camera that scans face, eye pupils, and fingerprints from different angles. This is going to rule out the stolen password or usage by unauthorized person problems.
The completely new technical support of Windows 10 is faster and more practical compared to the older versions. This is among the primary reasons to accept the offer that popes automatically on the screen of the existing licensed Windows 7 or 8.1 users to update their systems.
