Windows 10 upgrade

Upgrade licenses are only free until July 29, so CBR helps you on why you should move to Windows 10.


"Windows 10 is not for all of us, but for each of us," that was how Microsoft labelled its latest OS when it was released in July 2015.

Almost a year after of free upgrades, the OS accounts now more than 27% of total Windows traffic, according to GoSquared.

CBR lists five benefits that come with Windows 10.


Action Centre

Windows 10 has really brought together the whole user digital ecosystem. Microsoft introduced an optimised Action Centre that not only lets you get and see notifications, but also quickly manage your PC settings, from WiFi connectivity to screen brightness.

The Action Centre is based on the Windows Phone 8.1 OS. Its major usage is indeed the ability to get notifications not only from apps running on the computer, but also apps on mobile devices.

This means users can be notified of a new Twitter follower on their computer straight away, as well as on their phone and/or tablet. Over on the settings menu at the bottom of the Action Centre, you can control how your notifications work.
