Are you still using Windows 7? Are you wondering if you should switch to Windows 10 before the free upgrade is no longer available in June 29, 2016? Are you mainly wondering what the big deal with Windows 10 Â is? Well, we have done some research to help simplify the major differences between these two Windows programs. According to this research, the major aspects of change are in design, performance, and workspace.
Unlike the Windows 7 3D-like design, Windows 10 happens to have more of a flat and bold styling. This, along with the semitransparent and dark grey tones, helps create a more modern, professional look to the software. Another change in the new Windows system is that because the windows no longer have the wide borders around them, they appear to be smaller, clearer and more customizable.
An important detail is that, instead of remaining a tablet style desktop like Windows 8, it now returns to a Windows 7 style desktop. This allows you to efficiently use the system without any confusion.
Performance is a big deal when it comes to making a changing decision. The more noticeable performance aspects are quicker boot-up time, better battery lifespan for laptops and, if interested in gaming performance, better gaming performance due to access to DirectX 12.
There are many other advances in performance through Windows 10. There is now added storage space that is designed to group hard drives together to ensure that data is backed up. The new share ribbon on the file finding tools for apps helps you transfer files quickly while viewing the transfer speed in real time. Even though Windows 7 allowed you to find any program or file by clicking on the start button, the new Windows separated the search box in a more organized manner while also including store apps and online searches.
Even with all of this, the most innovative performance feature would have to be the Cortana personal assistance. With this desktop device, you would be able to schedule appointments, make notes, and live search anything.
Like performance, workspace is another big deal when it comes to making a decision to change. With Window 10â€™s new task view mode, you are able to create multiple workspaces and switch between them as if you were on a different screen. This could help you manage your tasks in a more efficient manner instead of having to crunch in multiple windows into one desktop space while working. The new continuum feature also helps with workspace because it detects what device you may be using in order to switch into the appropriate tablet/desktop mode. This way, if on a tablet, it will allow access to touch-friendly icons.
