THE NEWS AT WIN­DOWS 10

Mi­crosoft has found its mojo again with Win­dows 10. Won­der­ing what you can ex­pect from the new OS? Won­der no more...

Australian T3 - - RADAR -

1 WHERE TO START

10 brings the much-missed Start menu back, and it’s not the com­pro­mise found in the Win­dows 8.1 up­date.

2 AC­TUAL WIN­DOWS

The new OS treats apps like desk­top pro­grams, with menu bars, taskbar icons and proper re­siz­ing.

3 QUAR­TERED SCREEN

You can have Word in one quar­ter, what­ever you’re pla­gia­ris­ing in another, and still see movies and mu­sic.

4 TASK LIST

Alt and tab lets you switch be­tween open pro­grams. The task view but­ton lets touch­screen users do it too.

5 DOU­BLE DESK­TOPS

Task view also adds the abil­ity to cre­ate a more vir­tual desk­top – one for business, one for plea­sure.

6 UP­WARDLY MO­BILE

Mi­crosoft says Win­dows 10 will look just as good on your phone as it will on an

80-inch flatscreen.

7 FLAT AS A PAN­CAKE

8’s bolder, flat­ter de­sign re­mains, but gra­di­ents make empty spa­ces look

bet­ter on big screens.

8 FIND FILES FASTER

You’ll now find re­cent files and oft-vis­ited fold­ers in File Ex­plorer, so you can

dive straight back in.
