Microsoft Unveils Windows 10 Tech Preview - Complete OS To Be Available 2015

Posted in: , , , ,

Microsoft unveiled Windows 10 yesterday and today, the company has given a first look at an early technical preview for the PC. The early technical preview of Windows 10 demonstrates new levels of flexibility, navigation and familiarity through the Windows experience. Features include these:

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

Apps that 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 users to maximize, minimize and close with a click.

Snap enhancements. Working in multiple apps at once is easier and more intuitive with snap improvements. A new quadrant layout allows up to four apps to be snapped on the same screen. Windows will also show other apps and programs running for additional snapping, and it will 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 desktop created.

Multiple desktops. Instead of too many apps and files overlapping on a single desktop, it’s easy to create and switch between distinct desktops for different purposes and projects — whether for work or personal use.

The OS is also going to be familiar and consistent across devices. Windows 10 will adapt with a compatible experience to what customers are doing and the devices they're using - from Xbox, PCs, phones, tablets, to tiny gadgets.

Microsoft is also delivering a converged application platform for developers on all devices with a unified app store. Developers will be able to write an application once and deploy it easily across multiple device types, making discovery, purchase and updating easier than ever for customers.

The announcement of the new operating system yesterday also highlighted advancements designed for business, including an updated user experience and enhanced security and management capabilities.

The company also introduced the Windows Insider Program, an open collaborative development effort to best meet the needs of customers. Check it out here.
