If you were one of the users of the 7 and 8.1 versions of Windows, surely you have been asked to change it with Windows 10, if you haven’t done this already. But many people have been really reluctant to install it, given that Windows 8 had previously come with lots of changes. But let’s see what’s particular about each of them.


Ever since its release in 2008, everybody was extremely satisfied with how Windows 7 looked like. It was an updated version that was very user-friendly. It has a familiar look and the same navigation style as the previous versions, but it also introduced new things, such as the jump lists, a new task bar and the aero snap. On the other hand, Windows 8.1 had a really different design that confused many users. They quit the start menu and replaced it with a start screen with tiles. Windows 10 revives the start menu and adds the Continuum feature, which you can use to match the interface to the device you use it on (useful for using various devices).


Even though Windows 8.1 changed lots of things in the interface, it introduced lots of useful features, such as “Hyperboot”, which lets you start the OS faster. Windows 10 also keeps this, and it also has in common with 8.1 the fact that you can access OneDrive directly, storing files there from File Explorer, which you can’t do on Windows 7.

Windows 10 brings up a new personal assistant, pretty much like Apple has with Siri, only here it’s called Cortana. It’s not that performant, but it lets you perform some actions and search for things by speech. Also, it includes a new browser called Edge, thus quitting the old Internet Explorer.
