10 Windows came out after version 8.1. This is an operating system of the NT family, developed by Microsoft. It is curious that the tenth edition was assigned to the platform after the eighth, while the ninth edition was deliberately omitted by the developers for greater marketing success.

Changes in Brief

The most noticeable external changes in the version of Windows 10 include the return of the Start menu in its usual form. In addition, the ability to work with virtual desktops and run programs from Windows 8 in windowed mode has been added. Windows 10 was released in October 2014. It was then that the first preliminary edition appeared - "Build 9841". In the summer of 2015, the official release of Windows 10 is expected in more than a hundred languages in 190 states. During the first year from the moment the system is released, it will be possible to upgrade to it from other versions of the platform for free.

10 Windows has become the single operating system for a huge number ofdevices: Xbox One, smartphones, tablets and computers. It is supposed to create a single development platform and one universal application store that will be compatible with all types of supported hardware. As for the localization of Windows 10, the Russian version also allows you to create many desktops and switch between them. A special voice assistant named Cortana will appear here, which works on tablets and computers. However, it should be noted that Windows 10 in Russian does not currently support all of its functions. However, this omission is likely to be corrected by the day of the official introduction.

The new Start menu allows the user to view a list of frequently used files and applications with just one click. In addition, you can easily set up websites, programs, and contacts. The user can pin the tiles in the "Start", and if these elements are not needed, they can be easily turned off. However, if the owner of the device likes the OS 8.1 version of the home screen more, you can switch to it using a special function. You can change the size of the "Start" with the mouse cursor or expand the menu. In this case, the newly installed components are located in the middle of the Start menu.

As we have already noted, the currently available Windows 10 (Russian version) does not allow you to communicate with an assistant, since this feature is available exclusively for the United States. However, the developers claim that the official release will bring the function in a form adapted for the Russian Federation.
