Windows 10 is the new PC operating system from Microsoft launching this week.
Are you heard bad stories from Windows 7 desktop users who upgraded to Windows 8? However, Windows 10 fixes everything that went wrong with Windows 8. Here’s a quick view of why everyone should upgrade to Windows 10:
1. It is free
Currently, your PC running Windows 7 or higher version, you can download Windows 10 for free as long as you do it within the first year. You get the full version of Windows 10 for $0. There are no hidden fees, or charges down the road.
2. The Start menu is back with Windows 10
The classic Start menu was killed in Windows 8, but Windows 10 brings back favourite Start menu features. You can do everything in the classic desktop mode, and it should feel familiar to any Windows user. If you have a Windows 10 tablet, you can switch to Tablet Mode with one tap from the Action Center menu that you access by swiping over from the right side of the screen.

3. Microsoft’s digital assistant Cortana
Cortana is Microsoft’s Siri-like digital assistant core feature in Windows 10. Cortana can do all the basic stuff digital assistants do like answer basic questions about weather, traffic, or sports scores. You can also give it information about yourself such as what kind of food and entertainment you enjoy, so it delivers things you want without asking.
4. You’ll get free, frequent updates over time
Windows 10 won’t have updates with new version numbers like older versions of Windows did. Instead, you’ll get free, frequent updates that fix bugs, add new features, and provide overall stability.
5. If you do not like Windows 10, you can always go back to your older Windows version
You are worried you’ll hate Windows 10, Microsoft will let you go back to your older version for free.
Just go to Settings > Updates & Security > Recovery and you’ll see the option to go back to the last version of Windows you were using.
