Windows 10 Guide

Windows 10 – A cross-device operating system from Microsoft

Since July 29, 2015, there is the operating system Windows 10 , which was initially available as a general availability version. The owners of Windows versions 7 and 8.1 thus had the opportunity for one year to upgrade their operating system for free Windows 10 to update. New computers were either already with Windows 10 delivered or were – also free of charge – to the new version to be updated. Since July 30, 2016, the full version of Windows 10 chargeable. They are available in the variants „Home“ and „Pro“. With Windows 10 Mobile is also a mobile version of the operating system available. According to Microsoft, Windows 10 is the last operating system version that follows the classic versioning pattern. From now on, there will be a kind of „Windows as a Service“ instead of new Windows versions. The users of the operating system thus receive continuous updates not only error corrections, but also new features.

The innovations of Windows 10

The Windows 10 operating system is suitable for both laptopand the classic desktop PC as well as for mobile devices like smartphones or tablets. The graphical user interface of the operating system adapts dynamically to the properties of the respective device. Among the new features of Windows 10 include a new start menu, virtual desktops, the virtual assistant „Cortana“ and the web browser Microsoft Edge. The Start menu, which was replaced in Windows version 8 in favor of a start page, was redelivered in Windows 10 in a revised form. In addition to an overview of the installed apps and the ability to shut down or put the computer into standby mode, the new Start menu also allows you to attach shortcuts to programs in the form of tiles – similar to the home page of Windows 8 was the case. With the help of the virtual desktops it is possible to create a separate desktop for different areas. Different applications can then be stored on the individual desktops. The personal assistant „Cortana“ was taken over by Windows Phone 8.1. Cortana complements the search function of the operating system. With Edge, Microsoft has also integrated a new browser into the operating system, which should be more efficient and faster than the Internet Explorer web browser. Among other things, Edge has a note feature that allows web pages to be annotated and then sent to colleagues or friends.

Support guaranteed until at least 2020

All Windows versions for private and final customers are supported by the so-called mainstream support until the year 2020 for free. Wholesale and business customers who have purchased the corresponding Windows 10 licenses will receive support by the year 2025. However, support will only be available if all previously available security updates have actually been installed. These security updates are continually being released by Microsoft in the form of updates. In addition, there are regularly larger update packages. With the help of these packages it is possible to provide the operating system at once with all updates that have appeared after the release. In addition, the system is supplemented by functions from the so-called „insider builds“.
