Get Going with Windows 10 in Easy StepsISBN: 9781840786842
Windows 10 is the latest version of the popular Microsoft operating system and addresses many of the issues with its predecessor, Windows 8 (and 8.1). It consolidates the operating system so that users with a mouse and keyboard have their own specific version, as do mobile users with tablets and phones. One of the biggest changes in Windows 10 is the return of the familiar Start Menu. This is accessed from the Start Button and is where you can access areas within your computer, perform certain functions and also open apps from a variety of locations, using a selection of colored tiles. The operation of apps has also been standardized so that it is similar for the new Windows apps and the more traditional ones, all opening in their own window, with a traditional toolbar. "Get Going with Windows 10 in Easy Steps" looks at some of the new features that have been added, including a new web browser, Windows Edge, that allows users to draw on and annotate web pages and then send them to other people; a new personal digital assistant voice search, Cortana; and an improved File Manager that provides a Quick Access section for all of the items you like to use most frequently. The return of old favorites and the addition of new features help elevate Windows 10 to the most advanced operating system that Microsoft has produced. "Get Going with Windows 10 in Easy Steps" provides a handy, full-color, guide so that readers can soon be using Windows 10 like an expert.
