Windows 10 best features for me are under of being productive through multitasking. We are now a generation of movers and goal achievers. As a work-at-home mom, I want my online job gets done fast. At the same time, enjoy the little things that I love to do. Get to know what’s new in Windows 10. I’ll be sharing my windows 10 review and what I like most in this operating system.
The very first Microsoft Windows operating system that I used was Windows 95. I think my batch was lucky enough to have experienced the different Windows operating system that Bill Gates created. It was followed by Windows NT 4.0, Windows 98, Windows 2000, Windows ME, Windows XP, Windows Home, Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8 (I didn’t included some user interface for server and networking). When there is a new Microsoft window version upgrade, we are always on the lookout for something new that will ease the use of computer for work’s efficiency and productivity. Of course, exciting new features makes our world a happy environment to work with. This is what you can actually find in Windows 10 best features that I explored.
Windows 10 Best features
- Start Menu – Window Start Menu is back for Quick access to what matters most. Clap! Clap! We’ve been familiar with windows start menu so kudos to the Microsoft team for bringing it back. If we compare windows 10 vs windows 7, they have this same Start menu but I think the latter interface is more interactive.
- Fast Startup – Start and resume quickly with Hyperboot & InstantGo. I was truly amazed with the fast hyperboot of windows 10! Not only that, I am so glad with the sleep and wake up. With windows 8, I am scared of using sleep function because there are many times that my computer won’t wake up. Now with Windows 10, my computer wakes up fast!
- Multitasking – Create virtual desktops and see open tasks in one view. I like this most because I can do multiple task in one desktop. You can set onscreen several windows on your desktop working simultaneously. That means you can view other windows or programs opened while currently working with the other without closing the view of other programs. In the photo above, Microsoft edge was opened at the left side while I was playing youtube video at the top right. I can seamlessly type in Microsoft word without interruption with my youtube video viewing. I’m imagining typing a project in Microsoft word while trying to catch up the #AlDub #KalyeSerye through youtube. How to do multitasking in windows 10? Simply open your program, tick on the top center of that page, then slowly drag it to the side. Same goes to the other windows or programs. In addition, you can interchangeably switch to a new desktop view. (This will actually boost productivity level! So loved!)
- Microsoft Edge – We love headlines and fresh content. This is exactly the place where you can find it the moment you open it. You’ll read the news feed powered by MSN. There’s today’s weather forecast, Sports, Travel, and the latest National headlines.This lets you move quickly from browsing to doing. You can write or type notes directly on webpages and share them with others, read online articles free of distraction, and save your favorite reads for convenient access later (So liked!)
Microsoft announced the Windows 10 release date as early as June this year 2015. Windows 10 started to roll out to consumers on July 29, 2015. Last year, I’ve read about windows 10 preview and now I am already using it. 🙂 Thank you Microsoft! and also to my super I.T. hubby for upgrading my laptop.

Windows 10 free upgrade
The only requirements for the free Windows 10 Upgrade are that your device is compatible, and you’re running genuine Windows 7 or Windows 8/8.1.
Windows 10 is designed to run on Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 PCs. That means your device is likely compatible and will run Windows 10. Not every device will run every feature of Windows 10.
Other new features on Windows 10 is Cortana. This is a voice-activated personal digital assistant just like Siri in iPhone. It is only currently available on Windows 10 for the United States, United Kingdom, China, France, Italy, Germany, and Spain. So, here in the Philippines, I haven’t tried it.
All in all, I am satisfied in using windows 10 Home. When you use Windows 10, you’ll be familiar with some of the interface. The new Windows 10 Best Features will be encouraging you to be more productive, flexible with a touch of your personal preference.
