welcome to senior’s windows 10

the ultimate guide to windows 10

Incredibly, it’s been more than 30 years since the first commercial release of Microsoft’s Windows. After a myriad of ground-breaking iterations, the operating system continues to redefine how users interact with not just PCs but tablets, smartphones and even games consoles too. It’s apt then that during its anniversary year in 2015 Microsoft ushered in the latest release since Windows 8. Windows 10 brings a unified experience across modern devices, unveiling a raft of new features alongside some old favourites – and with the Anniversary Update (released in August 2016 as a free upgrade) certain Windows 10 features have been improved and refined. Classic desktop staples, most notably the iconic Start menu, returned in versatile style in Windows 10 and users are encouraged to customise Windows to blend popular aspects of…

start menu

Windows 8’s removal of the Start menu in favour of the Start screen was a bugbear for veteran users. The lingering expectation to click the familiar Windows icon made losing this popular feature jarring for some. Happily though, Windows 10 not only places the Start menu back into the left corner of the desktop taskbar, it also offers greater flexibility over its function and behaviour. By default, the ’new’ Start menu accommodates not only typical desktop apps and places, but also Live Tiles for Windows 8-style favourites. Crucially though, the Windows 10 Start menu allows Live Tile functionality to be switched off completely, along with unpinning Metro apps such as Mail, Weather, Store and so on. Alternatively, users can opt to view the Start menu full-screen, providing the best of both worlds.…

windows store

Windows 8 ushered in a new way to download and install apps on your PC and supported devices: the Windows Store. For the launch of Windows 10, the Windows Store was given a Beta facelift, which was made accessible as part of the OS’s technical preview. So, although the new design is subject to ongoing changes, when you click that shopping bag taskbar button or Start menu tile, we think you will be pleasantly surprised. Most notably, the general layout from the home page is much cleaner and more organised, with a carousel of latest and featured apps along the top. Here you will also find links to core Apps, Games, Music and Movies & TV categories, as well as quick access to download queues, your account profile and the search bar. What’s…

Veteran Windows would say Control Panel was always the traditional home for configuring every aspect of the OS, offering several layers of complexity based on how advanced users wanted to go. Control Panel still exists in the form of a new Settings app on the left-hand side of the new Start menu. Offering a more streamlined toplevel view, icons relating to System, Devices and Network & Internet are located here. Beyond popular preferences on power management, displays, peripherals and Wi-Fi, users can then personalise aspects like general accessibility and privacy levels. These basic settings can be expanded using the search bar in the top right. Here, more advanced options can be queried more rapidly. You’ll also find common ’quick actions’ for popular settings at the bottom of the Action Centre…
