Windows 10 New Operating System  Key Features

Microsoft announced Windows 10 on Tuesday at an event in San Francisco, marking the next major upgrade to Windows and the return of the Start menu.

Windows 10, which skips a number in its sequential order (many believed it would be called Windows 9), is the first major update since Windows 8, which was considered a failure by many and virtually ignored by businesses. It will also be the name of the next mobile operating system for Windows Phone.

Key Features (For Reference)
Here are the first set of features highlighted during the September 30 announcement and included in the Technical Preview. This list is more of a sneak peak, not an exhaustive list of final product features:

Expanded Start Menu: The familiar Start menu is back providing quick one-click access to the functions and files that people use most, and includes a new space to personalize with favorite apps, programs, people, and websites.

Apps run in a window: Apps from the Windows Store now open in the same format that desktop programs do. They can be resized and moved around, and have title bars at the top allowing for maximize, minimize, and close with a click.

Snap Enhancements: Working in multiple apps at once is easier and more intuitive with snap improvements. Have up to four apps snapped on the same screen with a new quadrant layout. Windows will also show other apps and programs running for additional snapping and even make smart suggestions on filling available screen space with other open apps.

New Task View Button: The new task view button on the task bar enables one view for all open apps and files allowing for quick-switching, and one-touch access to any desktops created.

Virtual Desktop: Instead of too many apps and files overlapping on a single desktop, it’s easy to create and switch between distinct Enterprise Specific Features: “Windows 10” will include features designed for businesses, including ones specifically to address their need for improved security and management.

Unlike previous editions where each version of Windows and each device had different app stores, Windows 10 will have only One store and applications purchase will work on all devices, similar to the iOS App Store, or Android Play Store.
