Geek of the Week: Windows 10

The new Windows operating system releases today...and its free! If you reserved your copy through the icon in your system tray, it will download automatically and prompt you for an install when its ready. If not, make sure your system has run all of the latest updates, then click on the Windows 10 app in the system tray.

What you get with Windows 10:

-Microsoft Edge...their new Internet browser to replace Internet Explorer. Its a more interactive browser, giving you the ability to make notes, add events to your calendar and more!

-Cortana...Windows' version of Apple's Siri. A voice commanded assistant on your desktop

-The Start Menu (and button) return! Blending the old with the new, clicking the Start button brings up a menu that looks similar to the Start Menu we all knew and loved from yesteryear, but programs and apps are displayed as the Tiles you saw in Windows 8.

-Better multi-tasking functionality

-Windows Store

-Cloud Storage

-Xbox One integration
