What do you like best?

- The most important thing about windows is that till yet it has also maintains its simplicity and ease of access.

- Another best thing of windows 10 that I like is it bridges the gap between the touch-optimised tablet and the desktop experience, allowing modern apps to run in a window on the desktop. An exclusive touch-view is activated when the users use the touch screen. This makes it easy to switch between devices that have both a laptop mode and a tablet mode.

What do you like best?

I like windows 10 hi-speed and lovely resolution view for the movie of work throw it.

In window 10 you can do so many jobs with office applications ( Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Access ). Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I face some problems with windows 10 like install Chrome update it will show like a corrupted file. Chrome didn’t work after that I remove and install it again then it is okay.

Windows 10 stocks the Start menu’s right edge with app tiles. Windows 8 and 8.1 owners may be accustomed to Microsoft’s new app-loving lifestyle, but apps may be unused and unwanted for recent Windows 7 upgraders.

Many services require one. Without a Microsoft account, you miss out on the benefits of OneDrive’s online storage space. Your child even needs to sign in with a Microsoft account if you want to track his computer usage. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Windows 10 apps feature you can remove an app desktop, click its name, and click the Uninstall button that appears below its title. Then click Uninstall again when Windows asks whether you’re sure you want to delete the app. Windows delete the app from your computer, removing it from the Start menu along the way. Not all apps can be deleted, unfortunately. If the Uninstall button is out, that app can’t be uninstalled.

Some people love apps. They’re designed for touchscreen tablets, as well as for phones, with limited screen real estate. They lack complicated menus and aim for touch-friendly simplicity. Other people hate apps, preferring to run more powerful programs on their desktop. After all, they’ve been doing it that way with a mouse and keyboard for more than two decades.

1. Protection Issues

Despite the fact that the clients favor the exhibition of Cortana by giving you all the stuff at correct time, numerous individuals think that its somewhat meddlesome in the security. Inside a time of use, Cortana knows numerous things about a client that hasn't been referenced anyplace.

2. No Media Center

In spite of the fact that large numbers of us are not used to Windows Media Center, it is important a great deal for individuals who do a ton of work on it and working without it might appear to be quite troublesome. Nobody knows why Microsoft did exclude this essential application in their more current up degree.

Others are windows defender erases file when downloading from a third-party website when it finds vulnerable and even though it's not. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I use windows primarily because many apps were developed and made for Windows 10. Every single minute of using Windows 10 was a pleasure, more than any other operating system for me. First, I'd like to say that it looks very good and provides tons of customization options. It's very stable, and it has a very elegant user interface. It's also very smooth and easy to use. I've never used any Windows version as good as this one, and I can emphasize that Windows 10 is the best. It has tons of improvements and they are really essential in order to make the user experience more enjoyable. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I do not like the bloatware that comes with Windows 10. It is an absolute embarrassment when you found that "Candy Crush" or whatever game apps were installed automatically on your system without your consent. It is bloatware, and it was forced. I did not install those bloat apps on my PC nor do I want them on my PC. Other than that, I know can uninstall these bloatware apps easily in a few minutes, but I would rather not have them there in the first place. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Windows 10 has been reliable for us, and all of our computers here at our business runs on Windows 10. With Windows 10, I've realized that workflow has been easier. Since customer, partners, and us are on the same operating system that's widely used in the world, there is lower chance of having compatibility issues. It is also easier to troubleshoot when all of us are using the same operating system. Hence, we're given the same directions without having to adjust or go out of line too much. This is beneficial for everyone, including us and the customers. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Compatibility! Known and proven functionality. I looks GOOD, yes that is important. Looks are important in : the research to know that dark pink font on red background is going to be hard to read ( Microsoft does that kind of research and placing it in setting options).. with open source, like Linux, not so much. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

BAD! Lets look at and compare WIN10 to some past versions: Windows ME ( brought new features but CRASHED ALOT. Then Vista, more feature A FROZE ALOT. there is difference between Crash & Freeze. but both are bad. then Windows 10: BAD- auto "forced" update. yeah I know its for my security... but Win10 will work for a month great , maybe 6 months then an update comes down and crash. Now. The UGLY: under previse windows you could get in with an another admin account or slave the HD and repetitively easy repair. UGLY- is how I have had more system lockouts, bootstrap crashes to the point the data was not accessible due to a update that I COULD NOT STOP without and expensive WSUS server and the PC already configure to a domain. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Windows 10 solves my Finance accounting . a software called "QuickBooks" works great on Windows 10. Other business programs like MS Office works best on a Windows 10 system. Solving data loss- use data backups and WSUS when you can. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
