Windows 10 comes with Microsoft Edge, an all-new browser that’s built to give you a better web experience. Edge allows you to write or type notes directly on web pages and share them with others, read online articles free of distraction, and save your favorite reads for later access. And with Cortana enabled you get instant access to key actions – like making reservations to your favorite restaurant for date night, or reading reviews from that new best seller – without leaving the page you’re on.

Multi-doing helps you get to “done” faster

Easily snap up to four apps in place and see all open tasks in a single view. You can even create virtual desktops when you need more space or what to group things by project. Whomever said that multi-tasking was difficult hasn’t met Windows 10 yet.

“This Windows will definitely blow the other Windows versions out of the water.”

Cortana works across your day and your devices to help you get things done. By constantly retaining information over time, Cortana becomes more personal and useful to you. Cortana’s also best at reminders, delivering them at the right time and place so you forget less and can do more. The best screen is always the one you’re on. Windows 10 enables all your apps to look and work seamlessly in all models, on all devices. On 2-in-1 devices, your screen can be optimized to work with touch or keyboard and mouse.

Windows 10 comes with great built-in apps like maps, Photos, Mail & Calendar, Music, and video. And these apps back up your information and sync effortlessly across your Windows 10 devices, so you’re never far from what you need.

“I have two words to say: Good Job.”

– Windows Insider
