Getting Hooked-Up on Windows 10: All you need to know

by October 1, 2015 0 comments

Microsoft recently released Windows 10, which represents a strategic shift in how Windows is going to be marketed in future. It’s going to be the last big bang release of Windows from Microsoft. So, in future expect regular upgrades just as you get for your mobile OS. Right now, all Windows 7 and 8 users get a free upgrade to Windows 10. So what Microsoft wants is to hold on existing users to its platform and further build upon that base and also to increase Windows’ relevance as a device agnostic platform. But of course key to increased adoption is performance and this is where Windows 10 comes with several new changes with the promise of improved performance.
Key new additions to Windows 10: It comes with a ‘Task View’ that lets you add more desktops in one PC. This means that you can run multiple applications simultaneously on different windows and while working on one Window, it will keep the rest as idol, saving memory and CPU usage.

Windows Store: The Windows Store is Microsoft’s attempt to unify the Windows 10 experience across all devices such as PCs, tablets and mobile phones. End users will be able to look for apps, games, music, movies and TV shows on their PC, tablet, or a Windows phone at one single place. With the universal application approach, developers can create the code for an application once and then simply tweak the app to run on PCs, tablets and phones of various sizes.

Cortana: The intelligent voice assistant: It is an intelligent personal assistant created by Microsoft which is part of Windows 10 as well.
It can help you look and find all sorts of online information you ask via text or voice commands.

Multifactor authentication: It comes with built-in multifactor authentication. That eliminates the additional security hardware peripherals like smartcards and tokens. When you enroll, it converts the device into one of two factors that are required for authentication.

Application access controls: In the current technological age, companies and employees are moving to BYOD environments, which entail several risks. Windows 10 enables admin restrict access to particular apps which are not allowed. Also, admin can restrict access, based on ports and IP addresses.
