Microsoft Windows 10 was publicly released this week and a lot if things have already been written about it. The development phase of Windows 10 has been quite, thanks to the Windows Insider program and the permit for a public beta test that has been underway since 2014. As a result, every new feature of Microsoft’s latest operating system has been heavily discussed.
The process of upgrading your device is conducted through the Windows Update code in 8.1. The process is quite lengthy and users will be provided with a feedback on-screen that the device would be rebooting while it progresses. T
here’s been a lot of publicity and hype surrounding Microsoft Windows 10 and people everywhere should be aware of this upgrade process. However, unless you have signed up for ‘Get Windows 10’, this latest OS from Microsoft will not be automatically installed on an unsuspecting or uninformed user.
The Surface Pro 3 is has been considerably improved by Microsoft Windows 10. Earlier, Windows 8 primarily focused on the touch-screen aspect and that was a bit of a stumbling block for Surface Pro 3. Windows designed the Surface Pro 3 as a convertible: it was a solid tablet device that could perform excellently as a laptop.
The hardware was top-notch but Windows 8 was trying to make it too much of a tablet. However, the tablet market didn’t enjoy a boom and Windows 8.1 was facing a dead end. With Microsoft Windows 10, the Redmondian Giant has established a balance between the potential of a tablet and the response to touch.
At the same time, the OS is clearly delivering a ‘laptop/desktop’ environment for hardcore computer users. The role of Microsoft’s latest OS has reversed things altogether. The latest operating system from Microsoft promotes the desktop-style environment first and then the preference for a tablet mode is noticed.
Things are perfect right now for the latest OS from Microsoft in terms of usability. Windows 10 has an ease of use that was simply absent in its predecessor, Microsoft Windows 8.1. The desktop mode in Windows 8 was a contradicted the tablet mode, there was a never a balance and the touch mode suffered due to this.
In Windows 10, the user with the desktop is in total control but the tablet mode is infallible as well. Microsoft clearly learnt its ‘touch’-related lessons, so the menus and Windows controls have larger areas and the switches and buttons are larger as well. The desktop mode looks fresh and is great to use. In Windows 10, the desktop mode works on a tablet rather than forcing the tablet mode on a desktop.
Meanwhile, there are many users who haven’t yet received a copy on Windows 10. Well, be patient because Microsoft started rolling out the update in 29th July. People are of course, taking advantage of this free update at a blistering pace and Microsoft definitely doesn’t want to create a global server meltdown.
Microsoft is therefore, rolling out the upgrades at a gradual pace due to which Microsoft warned future upgraders that they may have to wait for a few weeks. However, in case you are impatient, there is a way to skip ahead of this waiting period.
The secret lies in Microsoft’s latest Content Creation Tool. With the help of this tool, you can burn the operating system’s install media on a USB Drive or DVD with a minimum of 4GB of storage. Before proceeding, you will need to know the type of Windows 10 OS you must install. Head over to My Computer and click on Properties.
You will get to know whether you are running a 32-bit or a 64-bit operating system. In case you are running the Pro or Ultimate version of Windows 7/8, you will need a Pro or Ultimate version of Windows 10 as well. At the same time, Home, Starter and Standard versions can only upgrade to Windows 10 Home.
