On July 28, 2015 Microsoft released its new operating system with the name Windows 10. The piquancy of the whole situation was added by the fact that the giant from Redmond decided to make the new system available in the form of updates for owners of 7, 8 and 8.1 systems in both basic versions, as well as PRO. It has been several months since the release and many of you probably “harassed” every now and then by notifying about the free update, wonders if it is worth doing this step. This entry is not intended to provide a ready answer to this question, but we hope that it will help you familiarize yourself with the advantages of the new system, as well as indicate the aspects and functions that some people may miss.

Let’s start with the basic information, Windows 10 is the latest creation of Microsoft, according to the intentions of the manufacturer, the platform will use not only computers or tablets, but also smartphones. The incoming unofficial information indicate that for a free update from one of the eligible systems – 7, 8, 8.1 we have a year (from the date of release), if we update during this period, access to the version of Windows 10, we will be entitled to always. The system with the designation 10, like the others available so far, has a limited technical support date, because the release is the latest, the dates of this support reach more distant dates than the predecessors (the end of basic support is scheduled for October 2020, and additional October, however, 2025).

The most important changes that come with “Windows” in version 10 are primarily the return of the start menu and desktop – most of the users who have / have contact with Windows 8 or 8.1 and hated it for the solution that Microsoft used in their previous two systems, they will be extremely pleased with the return, maybe not quite the classic look of Windows and its launch bar, but it gives a lot of satisfaction and combines many innovations and possibilities. The new start can be divided into two halves, the left one having shortcuts to programs and functions known from the classic versions of the systems and the right one containing the ModernUI tiles known, however, no longer located on the full screen as in Windows 8 and 8.1 windows. Another important change is saying goodbye to the Internet Explorer browser, which has replaced the new one called Microsoft Edge. Thanks to the new engine and adaptation to modern realities, the new browser is to become unrivaled for the most popular browsers such as Chrome and Firefox.
