What Businesses Can Expect with Windows 10

Windows 10 Changes for Business

It may have been a bit of a surprise for some businesses to learn that the upgrade from Windows 8 would be Windows 10 (why there is no Windows 9 is still a mystery). There are also some who were excited to see the return of the Start menu, but unsure if that is going to be enough to get you to upgrade all of your systems. It may be a good idea to talk with a managed services provider in order to determine if this upgrade is worth your time.

However, before you make any decision, you should learn a bit more about what Windows 10 has to offer.

Windows’ Old but improved start menu

A huge shock for many users of Windows 8 was the loss of the traditional Start menu. The new tile based, horizontal scrolling option start screen wasn’t received well. With Windows 10, the beloved Start menu has been fully restored. You will also find that the Search box has made a comeback as well.

New Virtual Desktops

If you configure your desktop based on the task at hand, then you will love the new virtual desktops offered by Windows 10. They give users the ability to create one desktop featuring picture related applications and another to hold accounting applications and a database. Once configured, our onsite computer services will enable you to switch back and forth effortlessly between the desktops as you like.

Data in the Cloud

Remember how tedious it is to sift through bulky data sets and spreadsheets to find the data you need? Cloud technology has changed all that. By storing your date in the cloud, accessing it becomes faster and easier. An IT consultant at your computer services firm will be an invaluable resource during this process.

Work with Several Windows 10 AppsWindows 10 Business IT Changes

Another shortcoming of Windows 8 was related to native apps downloaded from the Windows Store because they only ran in full screen mode (or split-screen if you updated to Windows 8.1), which has made it somewhat cumbersome to work with several apps at the same time. The good news is that Windows 10 has removed this particular limitation. The apps you download from the Windows Store will now be able to run in movable and resizable windows making working with them much easier.

If you are considering installing the latest in the Window updates, you may need to consult an IT professional first, especially if you have a large company. Being aware of the changes that have been made will help to ensure that you are confident that Windows 10 is, in fact, right for you.
