Windows 10 and its features

Windows 10 is expected to bring the Start menu again and it seems to have features of the Windows 8 Start screen, with the Live Tiles and the traditional Start menu of Windows 7. The power button will also be seen in the upcoming window, so people will get to know how to shut down the device in a proper way.

One can also have multiple desktops in Windows 10 with other modern operating systems. Those who want more desktop real estate for short cut icons, or who have a preference to organize their things for a clean, organized desktop environment will be benefited by this.

There are tile-based apps in Windows 8 and in Windows 10, they may look similar to traditional desktop apps, with a windowed form and the familiar Maximize, Minimize and Close buttons. Windows 10 also has a new notification centre, where there was the Charms sidebar. In addition to combined messages from apps, the bottom of this sidebar consists of normally used settings like Wi-Fi and Display.

According to TheVerge, Microsoft has changed the way it develops and delivers Windows; the first result is Windows 10 and in place of big releases, there will be regular updates and efforts for improvement. It added that this is achieved to some extent by breaking operating system components such as the Start Menu and built-in apps to be separate parts.

A Microsoft spokesperson later told the news site, "Recent comments at Ignite about Windows 10 are reflective of the way Windows will be delivered as a service bringing new innovations and updates in an ongoing manner, with continuous value for our consumer and business customers".
