Have you missed your Start Button since switching to Windows 8? I know I have! Guess what? July 29, 2015 Windows 10 will be launching and you get an all new Start Button that functions the way the old one did with some new upgrades. I am SO excited! What’s just as exciting as my Start Button back? I get to upgrade to Windows 10 for free! You can even set your computer to auto-download the new Windows 10 as soon as it’s available by visiting the Microsoft site.
Here are three more exciting updates about Windows 10:
- The personal digital assistant goes beyond your phone: Cortana, the world’s most personal digital assistant is now available on the PC (and all of your Windows devices). Now on the PC, you can ask her to find files for you, send an email on your behalf, turn on your music, pull up photos, find apps and more.
- Microsoft Edge: The new browser for Windows 10, lets you write on the web with built-in note taking, sharing and integration with Cortana. Plus there’s a reading pane for no distractions.
- Play more: Your games, friends, achievements and more will follow you across Xbox One and Windows 10 devices. Xbox Live is built into Windows 10 giving you access to the greatest gaming community in the world no matter where you are. Windows 10 extends the Xbox experience with game streaming. Play your Xbox One games on a desktop, laptop, or tablet in your home on your local Wi-Fi.
While I’m not normally a huge fan of auto-updates, I’ll be setting my computer to download the new Windows 10 on July 29. I can’t wait!
