Incredibly, it’s been more than 30 years since the first commercial release of Microsoft’s Windows. Through 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 in this anniversary year we see Windows continuing to offer innovation, just as it always has done. Windows 10 promises 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 even further.

keyboard shortcuts

The rise of Windows in the formative years of mainstream home computing really went hand in glove with the mouse. The Graphical User Interface (GUI) and its Windows, Icon, Mouse and Pointer (WIMP) paradigm liberated users a little from their keyboards. However, both peripherals very much remain standard for desktop PCs and even in virtual form on touch devices. With Windows 10 harnessing next-gen forms of input alongside predominantly the pointer, lest we forget the usefulness of the keyboard for system shortcuts. These quick key combinations still represent the fastest form of performing interface actions for most, with Windows 10 ensuring its myriad of new features can be accessed this way. In this section we delve deep into the many available, and focus on those that users will want to learn…

upgrade to windows 10

“One way to get Windows 10 is through Windows Update” There are different ways to install Windows 10, which means you might not see every screen in this tutorial. Just focus on the ones that appear. One way to get Windows 10 is through Windows Update. It will automatically download, then ask if you want to install it. You can do so immediately, but if it’s not convenient, the installation can be put off until a later day or time.

connect to wi-fi

A computer without internet access is like a car without wheels, and it is not much fun. After installing Windows 10, you should connect to your home Wi-Fi as soon as you can so that you can get online.

You might find this a bit confusing at first, but once you have familiarised yourself with the new features, it becomes very easy to select and connect to wireless networks. Laptops provide a keyboard hotkey to turn Wi-Fi on or off, such as F10 or F12. Make sure that Wi-Fi is switched…
