5 reasons why to upgrade to Windows 10 now and not later!

It has now almost been a year (29th July 2015) since Microsoft first released Windows 10 to the public. To recognise this, we've put together the top 5 reasons why we believe you should be upgrading to Windows 10 now and not later!

1: Cortana

Windows 10 has now integrated Microsoft Cortana from the Windows phone 8.1. The phone voice assistant now found in Windows 10 can follow new commands such as reminders, calendar updates, open a browser and create a new email. Cortana is always improving and learning new commands and definitely something you won’t want to miss out on!  

 

2: Who doesn't want multiple desk tops? 

Windows 10 is now the first Windows system to support multiple desktops. This enables users to easily and quickly switch between desktops with use of the task view mode. Also known as virtual desktops, this can also enable a user to manage multiple desktops to help separate tasks into their own workspaces. The snap assist feature can also split the screen into half or even quarters to help arrange open windows.

 

3: Stylus and Touch-screen support

One of the biggest upgrades to hit Windows is its’ touch screen and stylus support. Bringing the same touch system you find on phones and tablets, Microsoft has shown that whilst touch may not always be the most appropriate interface for a computer, it is very convenient to have available and very useful, especially with new apps and games! 

 

4: Windows 10 very own app store

Unlike Windows 7, users can now find and download specific Windows 10 apps on its very own app store! There is also a bigger variety of different types of Apps that can now be run in either their own screen or full screen mode. More of the modern and newer apps will also work in conjunction with the touch screen support system as well.

 

5: It's Free!

Finally, Windows 10 is now free to download for users! For the last year users have been able to do so, but if you haven't already, time is running out! This free upgrade offer is available to qualified Windows 7 Service Pack 1 and Windows 8.1 users. This is mostly available for consumers, with Windows Enterprise editions not qualifying under the terms of the offer. The free upgrade will not be available after July 29th 2016 after which date customers will have to pay $119 to do so.
