As of July 29, 2015, Microsoft launched Windows 10 for PCs and tablets, which is a free upgrade to Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 users. According to Microsoft, Windows 10’s features include:
- Cortana: A personal digital assistant tool that learns individual preferences to provide users with recommendations and access to information. In addition to voice commands, you can use Cortana to set reminders and add calendar events.
- Microsoft Edge: A new, customized browser that offers content and results based on individual interests and preferences. It features a text-only reader mode, annotation tool, and Cortana integration.
- Windows Hello, Microsoft Passport, and Windows Defender for anti-malware and spyware protection.
So how can we help with all of this? Partnering with an MSP can maximize usage, and smooth out your transition to Windows 10. The most important benefit is to make sure the network and operating system is ready for Windows 10. The personal touch and customer service of a Managed Service Provider can facilitate that transition and give you peace of mind when it comes to not only transitioning your operating systems, but also your employees.
