Day-to-day working

  • Start menu now uses customisable tiles
  • Windows file explorer has been improved and includes a ‘ribbon’ menu similar to Office 2013/6
  • Notifications are improved and now show calendar appointments

See 10 new things about Windows 10 or the Windows 10 guide from GCFLearn for more information about Windows 10

  • Better integration with Office 365 and will enable future improvements that require Windows 10
  • Office 2016 will be installed when you upgrade to Windows 10.
