    1. Usability: Better-tuned for multi-tasking, the improved virtual desktops and superbly-implemented Task View make juggling multiple open windows much easier. Windows 10 also offers half-monitor and quarter-monitor sizes when you drag Desktop windows, and open windows can automatically fill open space. Apps and notifications are put at the user’s fingertips through the Action Centre, very much like you are used to seeing on a smartphone. Along with this, its File Explorer makes it easier to find and manage files, you can customise it and your common tools are easily located through the ribbon arranged top menu.

 

    1. Management & Updates: The importance of safeguarding valuable data plays a big part in the Windows 10 experience. It offers automatic updating that reduces IT workloads and keeps your organisation equipped with the latest systems, stress-free! Tools like Active Directory, Windows System Center Configuration Manager and InTune also make it easier to manage and monitor users and PCs on Windows 10.
