Windows 10: The Missing Manual (Free PDF)

File Size: 12.37 Mb

Even Microsoft admits it now: Windows 8 was a huge mistake. It was, in essence, two radically different operating systems, superimposed (see Figure 1). There was the regular desktop, which worked a lot like the popular Windows 7. And then, lying over it, there was a new, colorful world of tiles and modern typography—I called it “TileWorld,” since Microsoft didn’t have a name for it—that was designed for the new world of touchscreen tablets and laptops.

Unfortunately, the result was two Web browsers, two Control Panels, two mail programs, two ways of doing everything. And, in general, people couldn’t stand it.

In hopes of getting as far away from Windows 8 as possible, Microsoft skipped Windows 9 entirely; there never was a Windows 9. But now there’s Windows 10.

In this new operating system, Microsoft achieved something rather brilliant: It eliminated the split personality of Windows 8 but managed to retain the touch-friendly features. Just in case, you know, the world moves to touchscreen computers after all.

If you’re a PC veteran, then you’ll recognize Windows 10: It’s pretty much Windows 7 with a few new features and nicer typography.
