On Wednesday, Microsoft unveiled more about Windows 10 – how it will “inspire new scenarios across the broadest range of devices, from big screens to small screens to no screens at all,” explains Terry Myerson, executive vice president of Operating Systems.

As expected, Microsoft made a strong push toward connecting its devices more seamlessly, as a part of its universal apps program and the competition around. Continuum was the feature well more wisely known Continuity in apple ecosystem ,shown widely more often ! Work on one device ,carry the same thing on other ,part of continuum! This works properly since they have addressed the flaws in tablet and PC mode settings for Convertible PC’s ,thus expanding the continuum feature in a same way. Well if you are a Windows user ,you might be knowing that how cumbersome ,it was to turn on wifi/bluetooth or maybe increase/decrease brightness.. accessing them by a left swipe from the Right edge ,basically things were not so proper. But now in Windows 10 ,there is a new Action center making its debue here in PC inspired from Windows phones ! But Now with the advantage of getting your notifications across all your devices and Apps installed in a more unified way.

Start screen looks more natural than ever with no lags anywhere ,things pop in elegantly apps now work smoother may that be Win 32 or Store Apps. Apps also get the default layout according to Tablet/PC mode you are in automatically. Closing App gestures make its way for Win 32 apps. One of the features showcased more at the event was Natural interaction with the digital world ,that we live in.Well first ,we had stylus to be more productive , then came in gestures ,then at the Intel CES 2015 event RealSense Technology was soon expanding the Array of Gestures without even touching the screen ,that might soon make it’s way here.


But now there’s one more way to be more personal and connected to your computer and that’s Cortana ! Yes ,Cortana makes her way to PC’s and tablets world ,making help millions on their desktops who didn’t owe an Windows Phone ,giving others a sense of what a True Digital Personal Assistant Is ! well not only is the UI from Windows phones been transported here ,but a bevy of new features have also been incorporated in Cortana. For example you can search for a file without touching cortana app in Taskbar ,just say :  ” Hey Cortana , Search for my presentation 21 document ” ,and she will show your results from Local drives in PC’s and from your cloud storage : Onedrive here for that matter. Those of you familiar with Cortana ,she is integrated heavily with Bing ,she can show many things like scores ,weather updates.etc you can always configure your interests in her notebook .
