Windows 10 Technical Preview

Windows 10 Technical Preview is the first test version of Windows 10, the new OS from Microsoft presented at a press conference in September 2014 The operating system basically brings a mixture of the main tools of Windows 7 and Windows 8, according to the developer itself.

Among these tools, we finally have the Start Menu back, a system of multiple workspaces, a method of organizing more efficient windows and apps from the modern Windows 8 interface, which now function like ordinary windows or full screen.

 

Start Menu

Many people complained about the lack of the Start Menu in Windows 8 . Actually, it was replaced by the Start screen, which was not well received by most users of the OS. With some updates, Microsoft was minimizing the problem and, in Windows 10, decided to recreate the Start Menu.

So, you do not need to drag a window over to have its duly split screen, since the OS identifies your intentions. Other than that, this system also allows the organization to make an automatic grade of up to four windows of equal size.

Another important detail is the possibility of using the apps of the modern interface of Windows 8 as ordinary windows. That way you get to organize these elements in your work area in the same way as any other program developed in desktop format.

 

Multiple workspaces

That was one ignored by Microsoft for many years in the field of desktop systems function. Various Linux and Mac OS X itself already use a manager of multiple work areas and now with Windows 10 Technical Preview, this function is now part of Windows.
