You are here means you are excited to know the features of the upcoming version of OS from Microsoft i.e. windows 10.Microsoft skips Windows 9 name & names its further release as Windows 10. But as everybody know when windows 8 was launched it made many of its users happy and a profound number of users, unhappy to switch over from windows 7 to 8. Because many of us still consider the UI of Win 7 more user friendly and simpler than that of Win 8 or 8.1. So this time considering the feedbacks from all kinds of users Microsoft has decided to deliver such a kind of OS which is most likely to be liked by every kind of user. Hence here we have written a small description on the features of Windows 10. It is heard that Windows 10 is called Windows Threshold also.

NB: Whatever you are going to read is the description collected from various sources like Computerbase, Winfuture etc who are behind the leak of the screen shots and features.

Updated StartMenu:

Microsoft has made some huge changes with the start menu. As we said earlier considering the disappointments of win 7 lovers and appreciations of win 8.1 lovers it has merged the Metro menu and the start menu of win 7 and the UI is really looking awesome. Here you can find the screen shot.

Virtual Desktop Switcher:

It is one of the craziest feature that we have found in Win 10. Using this one can switch over between multiple windows opened at a time in a particular destop. You don’t need to install any software to view more than one destop screens in one Interface any more. Before this one had to install some third party softwares to accomplish this.

New Notification Centre:

This is one of the unique features that Microsoft has added to its os. This notification centre will appear like that in some android tabs and here along with pc messages you can see many other notifications like mails, subscriptions etc.

No CharmsBar:

Recent leaks from WinBeta claims that Windows 10 will not have any charms bar that comes out at the right of windows 8 & 8.1 containing buttons like share, settings, search & start. However it may disappoint some of its users.

Release Date:

Regarding release date we are not pretty sure, but as per the leaks we can only say that it is soon to hit the markets and Microsoft is going to release a Beta version first.
