10 Incredible Things Windows 10 Can Do

2) Say Goodbye To Internet Explorer

Explorer -> Edge

photo: www.yesnews24.com

Perhaps the single most frustrating tool offered by Microsoft with its NT built operating systems has been Internet Explorer. Let’s face it, no one uses Internet Explorer and with a good reason. The browser is bulky, slow moving, and incredibly susceptible to having unwanted add-ons sneak into its framework. Explorer will be replaced by “Microsoft Edge” (formerly “Project Spartan”). The new browser is built with a completely new engine and loads just as quickly as Google Chrome. It’s also just as versatile as Chrome because users can now add extensions and apps to the browser. Now we’ll just have to wait and see if Edge is just as susceptible to unwanted third party software!

    Looks good on the outside, but what is under the hood? I want to see a more efficient, stable, secure and robust OS. I want compatibility and versatility. Hope Windows 10 can deliver.

    • anonymous

      Fuck apple

    • Andrew Bairsto

      It will be like all the rest of WOS doesn’t live up to expectations.

    • WinTenTen

      It is the best OS to date so far. I have used Apple (still on a daily) Yosemite and Linux products and saw their superiority to Windows. Yes! MS did it on this one. Flawless. Especially I upgraded from Vista Home Premium to Windows 7 pro to Windows 10. The privacy issue people speak, just turn them all off and you good to go. I recommended to non-MS believers and MS believers who are still stuck on Windows XP and 7. Start menu is flawless and can be customized. I don’t however like the new task view function though I see the purpose especially with virtual desktops. I preferred Aero Flip. Cortana on a desktop = Microsoft going one up on Apple with Siri only being on iOS and probably coming soon to OS X.

      As a tech, being able to apply certain shortcuts (ctrl + V) etc especially in cmd.exe is great. I still would still use Windows XP with all the updates and last version. Windows 7 installation sometime in the future on a different laptop or even dual boot them for the sake of tech support.

      Windows 10/10.

      – A power user.

        Gospel.
        I’ve been benchmarking the engineering samples for the past year or so on various platforms and VM’s…
        There are still some MS-usual incomplete features, they always do that, but the missing networking functions, etc are minor, and will be very soon implemented.
        MY issue is HW compatibility… just because your machine can run Win7 doesn’t mean it can handle 8 gracefully (or at all), and if this is the case, in spite of 10’s superior new thread and process memory space management, you will run into a host of issues ranging from simple lag, delayed boot time, or even complete refusal to boot. 10 forks from all the good stuff in 8 that they rushed to market (again, typical MS), so if 8 has given your machine the farts, don’t expect 10 to save you. Continue with your current build, and if you really want to try it now on your current hardware, at least make a full system image to restore your current machine, should you find 10 doesn’t work well. When it’s time for your new PC, though, be assured that 10 is the “good” side of the MS market cycle.
        You know, one great version, one lousy version, repeat.
        95 – ehh…
        98 – great
        ME – yuck
        2000/XP – great
        Vista – lousy
        7 – great
        8 -horrible
        10 – win
        It’s been this way since the beginning

      • Tom Novak

        Don’t do drugs

  • Ivan El Gharbi

    yeah you just sayd almos the same shit they said with 8, and 8 sucks

    • Amor Vincit Omnia

      Try the techpreview version. This one looks promising imho.

  • james

    I seriously doubt the main reason people were switching to Apple was because of Siri.

    The Xbox/Win10 crossover thing looks interesting though. Hope they don’t mess it up.

    • ghost of delete key

      But deep down, you know they will.
      Apple is a one-trick-pony, but that’s what endears them to their fanbase.
      Microsoft generally tries too many pans on the stove, but you’re guaranteed lots of tasty treats when the splatter is cleaned up.
      6 of one, half-dozen of the other, I guess.

    welcome back Cortana, im Master Chief John. hw would you like back to Halo N hunt some aliens?? XD

    Well it is an interesting article, but I must say that I don’t agree with the touch screen, we all love our iPads. Not everyone has an iPad. I have surface pro 2 and I love it. Seems a bit forward you to assume that everyone with touchscreen tablets own an iPad

    • Major Sceptic

      Was thinking the same thing mate, never had any apple stuff, have zero interest in having any in the future.

  • Matt Bower

    How many features did they want to use from apple’s OS X. Features that are 4 years old. MS are so behind.

    • QM2015

      but more popular! btw apple has no touchscreen desktops or laptops. Grow up apple!

      • Matt Bower

        You picked on one feature. Lol why do you want to touch the screen on a desktop or laptop a mouse pointer is far quicker. MS has had some good os’s overtime but using features borrowed from a compedior you can’t call that innovation. And using them as their key new standout from the crowd features is rubbish.

        • QM2015

          Tell me which feature on Apple is not copied from anyone else! Technology is public domain!

        • ghost of delete key

          WHY? Accessibility, my friend. My father uses a touchscreen desktop arrangement, because he has only one hand, and that’s not working so well. Touchscreen on desktop allows him to use the machine every bit as easily as a fully-able person. I also have physical issues which make mousing and keying difficult, though I haven’t yet given in to spending the $$$ for a nice touchscreen arrangement.

      • Gorimapka

        Apple has there greatness too. 4K, Thunderbolt 10 Gbps and Thunderbolt 2 20Gbps, Mission Control Continuity, Apple Watch, Hand off, Visual Voicemail (built-in), Apple TV just to name a few. I can ramble on, but will say this to boot ~ Windows 10 is Microsoft answer to Apple products on several fronts 1. Mobile (Tablet and Phone) 2. Cortana over Siri especially on desktop 3. Simplicity of syncing between devices and also one drive as compared to iCloud though iCloud does beat it with it’s features such as photo-stream, iTunes in iCloud. I have tried groove music yet when it comes to one drive and so cannot compare it to Apple Music which so far is great alongside iTunes Match. 4. Apple pioneering and MS following and have their own stuff they have pioneered and will be pioneering. Pretty much like Democrats and Republicans in a sense of holding office and house floors lol.

        Trackpad (Genius idea) was the answer to Touchscreen due to fingerprints and awkward positioning.

        So when it comes to features, functionality, video editing, studio etc Apple gets it. Usability goes to Windows.

        It all truly depends on the user. What OS they used first, like the most, exposed to etc.

        I do prefer Windows but then again anything that computes. Someday I will get to use Chromium just cause. Adaptability especially for on the job.

        • ghost of delete key

          Here’s the problem:
          Mac does what it does flawlessly. That’s because you are very limited as to what you as a user can do. Of course syncing devices is simple… it does what IT does, and that’s it. On a PC, I can configure virtually anything I want in whatever way I can imagine… but on a Mac, I’m confined to “push THE button, and get what you get”. No wonder only Facebook junkies and movie addicts are the prime demographic for Mac, constituting roughly 10% of the desktop computing market. For everyone else that needs to do something “not provided for”, there’s the PC.

    • Anon

      MS doesn’t wanna be behind, thus MS created Windows 10….

      Apple doesn’t have the copy right of any feature of these, even I can copy them rightfully….

      P.S. Apple sucks when it comes to sharing, unlike MS

      • emjay

        each one has it own advantages and disadvantages , windows is really good for gaming but its old school and apple they have really great security system and technology

      • Gorimakpa

        Exactly! Soon though I think MS will bite that apple especially with Groove Music Membership. There goes sharing! My suggestion don’t drive on 1 drive lane while steering into the cloud you might lose an i.

  • Lel27

    Good idea to let sb who has no IT knowledge writing an article XD All points seem to riped of an computer magazine and puzzles together its like a stupid hipster with no idea of what’s important. What about new changes in CPU managing generally system managing. And all those apple fanboys I know os x is stable and good but windows is better in some points and woreser in other but most guys commenting down here and criticize windows and they don’t even know apple didn’t invented the touchscreen stupid hipsters wtf!!!

  • Full Metal Pizza

    I’ll learn those 10 things elsewhere. Listicles with just 1 item per (ad-ridden) page ain’t no fun.

    • Joshua Soerjodibroto

      And even, after iterating through the listicle, the 10th item was locked behind a Facebook Like button. Pathetic!

      • ghost of delete key

        >not using Firefox inspector to eliminate the annoying node<

        Anyway, Apple DOES charge for their OS, the cost is bound in their overpriced proprietary hardware.
        Like, if Ford sold you a car that only runs on Ford gasoline… the gas is free, but the sedan costs $175,000 … get it?

  • Fernando Montellano

    I hope you can make good use of the ten first and last clicks in this lame site, won’t ever come back…

  • Montarion

    I have only one point to reflect on, and that’s 8. Taskview? Multitasking? It’s not incredible if it’s old.I’ve seen this in OSX 4 years ago, and in nearly every Debian based desktop environment. You idiots call it Linux.

    One more thing.don’t let us click trough a fucking article you stupid pricks.

    • Ricardo Hernandez

      don’t be so harsh, of course it’s a click for every fact, they just learned technology has advanced so much by shifting from windows 98 to windows 10

  • Robert Tubere

    Don’t forget the other INCREDIBLE things Windows 10 can do. 1. It has a notepad. 2. It has Windows Paint. 3. It can display on a screen. 4. You can use a keyboard with it. 5. You can boot it up. 6. You can shut it down. 7. You can get BSOD. 8. It has a screen saver. 9. Everyone in topmensmagazine loves these incredible things Windows 10 can do. 10. Your computer can work without it. Dumb asses.

  • Irish Sweetness

    Fuck Microsoft. Fuck Apple.

    • Ricardo Hernandez

      meh… fuck this page

    • Windows 10

      Fuck Google which doesn’t give a damm about our privacy

      • Magnus Lunde

        Fuck both Windows and Google. Use ddg.gg or something. There are many alternatives.

  • Raj Aryan

    Pretty Hard To Understand But The Last One Which Says “content is locked”…

    it’s Not The Way You Should Be Asking People To like Your Page…

  • Dani Reader

    taskview = expose on OS X from about 15 years ago. Also this article was so bad, and I’m never coming to this horrible, ad-infested click bait article ever again.

  • slasaru

    Oh yeah, every fact on different page?
    I’m not reading further

  • Aryan

    i keep getting the critical error message it says start menu and cortana has stop working
    because of that i had to go back to windows 7

  • berjis zamboori

    Yes

  • berjis zamboori

    Are you kiddung me? Begging for fb like? You can go sh*ve that last item up somewhere..because i wont like or see your website ever again!

  • John

    After 5 days of use I went back to windows 7. Too many privacy issues for me. Plus the interface and UI is ugly. The blocky bland colors, plus you can’t control transparency anymore. Anyone use using windows 10 make sure to check your privacy and location settings. Turn it all off unless you want microsoft to have access to all your info.

    • Njoi Fontes

      Lol where did you buy your tin hat? I guess you don’t own a smartphone because these privacy issues are nothing more than what android or ios entail. The only difference is that you can easily turn it off in windows 10. Also to call windows 10 ugly just shows that you have terrible taste… it looks beautiful

    • Windows 10

      Microsoft is only company that respects our privacy.

      I’ll live easier and also future proofed life and enjoy Windows 10
      while you get scared to use Windows 10 but give your all privacy to Google

      And you probably do nasty things with your PC
      That’s why you’re scared to use Windows 10
      But don’t worry If you own iPhone or Android There’s no more privacy for you. good luck

      • Lloyd Wolf Franklin Smith

        obvious troll is obvious

      • Zack Barkley

        erm. M$ “claims” in their EULA for Win10 they have a “right’ to inspect private files on your computer, and turn these files over to other individualas (corporations, legal authorities, etc). This crosses many lines with privacy and constitutional law, and they are basicallly saying they have the right to do something illegal. Quite frankly, people should be up in arms, and the FBI should be investigating at this point, as someone WILL eventually get hurt and hurt bad once these kinds of backdoors and seciurity flaws are built by design into a common OS system used in our private lives, schools, hospitals, and governments. Amazing is not the word I would be using for Windows 10…more like ?why are M$ execs and their idiotic lawyers not being dealt out prison sentences. If a cable guy or postal service wrote such fine print garbage into their contracts to peruse your private belongings, and actually used them, they would certainly suffer the full brunt of the law.

    • Dragan Milekic

      True!

  • God

    Get The Fuck out A here!?

  • $126324273

    For those who have been blinded by pure, but unexplained hatred for Windows, no version would be perfect. So let them enjoy that bitten apple as long as they can. For me, nothing beats Windows. Once a windows user, always a Windows user. That’s me. Period.

  • Giotto

    Jesus, please shut up. Honestly I can’t believe Microsoft gets away with making little to no changes in a new version. Almost every feature is available already on other operating systems!
    Take linux: Better start menu? Done for ages. Privacy issues? Don’t exist. Facebook built into operating system!? Fuck no. Touch screen? Great. Nobody uses it on a PC. What a waste of time. All this hype is built up from nothing but the name “windows” and different looking icons.

    • Magnus Lunde

    Apple given away OS X for free? But only untill they decide that your Mac is too old. (Which is rather soon)

    • ghost of delete key

      THIS

  • Allexio

    This “article” was completely pointless!
    waste of my time.

  • Magnus Lunde

    And guess what:

    Everything you type, every e-mail you write or read, every image on your computer and pretty much EVERYTHING is sent to Microsoft! Most of this can’t be turned off, and the best part is this: They state very clearly that they WILL snoop in it, and report everything to governments, spy agencies and police when they feel like it.

    Wow, free spyware! This is even more awesome than getting infected by a nasty computer virus. Where can I get one?!?
