Microsoft unveils the future of Windows 10 – The next version of Windows OS
Windows 10 will be Microsoft’s single platform for developing apps across all devices, from Smartphone’s and tablets to desktop PCs. However, Windows 10 will not be a one-size-fits-all operating system and instead will vary a bit from device to device.
Codenamed as Windows Threshold, Windows 10 will come with customizable live tiles in the new Start menu, which will look familiar to Windows 7. Among other features, Windows 10 will provide new options for re-sizing windows, multiple desktops, and a convenient “task view” to switch between them.
The resizable tiles will provide users a quick view of notifications from relevant applications, such as details of new emails, Facebook messages, weather forecast updates and more.
Other features include Task View – which supports multiple desktops, and Snap Assist – which lets you grab apps from multiple desktops. The Windows command prompt has also been improved.
The announcement of an updated Windows operating system doesn’t come as a complete surprise, as the leaked images of the latest Windows OS – under the codename “Threshold” – spread online which gave a closer look at Microsoft’s next major version of Windows. The only surprise is that the latest version of Windows is Windows 10, instead of Windows 9.
