With Microsoft changing it’s mind on the naming of it’s next operating system, confusion abounds as to what the next incarnation will be. Welcome Windows 10 and a plethora of changes and new features. Windows 10 will be available to the general public in the first quarter of 2015 according to Microsoft. One aspect that makes W10 stand out is it’s ability to know by what hardware it is being installed on whether or not to enable the Metro desktop from it’s predecessor Windows 8. This enables a desktop or non touch screen laptop owner to have the familiar Windows 7 feel of the standard desktop and start menu. Tablets will get the familiar Metro tiles. If you prefer the metro over the desktop you can change that too. The new “Quad Snap” feature allows larger monitors to snap four windows in place one in each corner to allow more effective use of the real estate of a large screen. There is a pull over from Linux that allows a user to have multiple desktops as well. This allows you to dedicate the icons and programs on it to suit the task at hand. I myself use one for photo editing and another for research. The preview of Windows 10 is fast and stable on a 5 year old machine as it is on a new faster machine. If you would like to see what the new Windows 10 looks like and has to offer, Stop in to Mohave PC Computers at 30 Scott Dr. and have a run with the Technical Preview. We are open Monday through Friday 9am to 5pm and Saturday 9am to 2pm. 928-846-3213
