In part one of this article, I told you about Windows 10’s improved Start Menu, cutting Edge browser and digital assistant Cortana. Today, I’ll tell you about my other favorite features of Windows 10.

4. Windows Store:

Microsoft launched the Windows Store in Windows 8,  catching up to rival Apple, which already has one in place for Mac. Apple OS has a working app store along with millions of games and applications. Microsoft should probably have introduced it earlier, but it is still an achievement.

However, In Windows 8, the app store drew a lot of criticism for being difficult to use and  and having a poor selection. In Windows 10, there’s an improved interface and they’ve combined all of Microsoft’s stores for music, videos, games and apps into one central location.

They’ve also made it possible to re-size the Windows Store, where previously it took up your whole screen.

5. Virtual desktops:

My fifth and the last, but certainly not least, feature of Windows 10  is “Virtual Desktops.” This feature give you the ability to add additional workspaces, customized to suit your needs. It’s a multi-tasker’s dream come true.   You can have one desktop for work and other for home use. Or perhaps one devoted to games and another to project you’re working on.

As you can see in the above picture, I have opened four different applications.

The best  feature inside Virtual Desktop is the ability to add a new desktop. It enables the users to add any number of desktops they want and each one of these desktops can have different applications.

You just have to click on the “+” icons labeled as “New Desktop” while in Virtual Desktop mode, in order to create a brandnew desktop.

Those are my top features of Windows 10. What do you like? Let me know in the comments.
