Is Windows 10 Still Worth Upgrading to?

If you have been hesitant about upgrading to Windows 10, you’re not alone. Like most people, you worry if the switch to a new operating system is the right choice. Microsoft has been pushing people to upgrade to Windows 10. Most recently, Microsoft has sent user messages to force upgrading to Windows 10 via OS updates.

Microsoft is known to have operating systems that don’t pan out well, such as Windows Vista and Windows 8, so it is completely understandable to be wary about another Windows OS edition. The general consensus, however, is that it’s time to upgrade, as experts claim Windows 10 is one of the best operating systems that Microsoft has put out in years.

Windows 10 is a sleek, much needed upgrade to Windows 8. It’s free to upgrade from any earlier Windows version. The OS includes a number of great new features, such as Microsoft’s answer to Apple’s Siri, Cortana. You can ask Cortana just about anything and get an answer. Cortana can also help you control your computer.

Windows, like its competitors, offers an app store, which may not have the selection that Apple’s or Google’s has, but is growing with over 700,000 apps available. Microsoft added Live Tiles to its start menu and has also brought back the classic, well-known Microsoft start button.

In addition to the new features, Windows 10 is super easy to use and makes it even easier to multitask. Windows 10 has improved upon the multi-screen view, making it easier than ever to switch from one window to the other.
Windows 10 boots up faster than older versions and is the most secure version of Windows. Also, for the first time in years, Microsoft has made a drastic change to Internet Explorer, which has been replaced with a smooth running internet browser: Edge.

Another cool thing about Windows 10 is the ability to switch back to your older operating system, if you don’t like the Windows 10 OS. If, within the first 30 days, you are not satisfied with Windows 10, you can go back and recover whichever operating system you deem as Old Faithful without a lot of time and hassle.
