Windows 10 Uprade - Review by Terri Pattio (Part 2)

Due to the overwhelming response to my previous post on Windows 10 Upgrade review. I have more to share with you about the operating system by Microsoft.

I must write this post to share what I have learned about the new Windows 10 system by Microsoft.

I recommend reading my first post about Windows 10 Upgrade at the link below, and return here to continue reading my post today.

Windows 10 Upgrade Review by Terri Pattio

First I want to talk about the Microsoft Edge browser. It is definitely different from other browsers. It is kind of cool because it has three things that may be beneficial for some people. You will see this if and when you decide to use it. Keep in mind you don't have to make it your default browser. When you open up the browser that you normally use, it will ask you to make Microsoft Edge your default browser. You can then set your default browser to what you have been using. I don't use Microsoft Edge as my default browser. I do use it for some of the other features that's available.

The browser I use is Firefox and you do have control over this.

My recommendation is that you click on the Windows icon in the taskbar, you need to scroll down until you see "All apps." Next you scroll down the list of apps listed until you get to the letter G, now you look for Get Started. A screen will pop up and from here you will see a list that I recommend you go through. Each item listed has a brief description about the new apps that come with your Windows 10.

Now moving on to the next subject which I feel is very important to do so that your transition won't be frustrating you while you're getting used to the Microsoft Windows 10 Upgrade.

I recommend that you turn on the settings of the apps you will be using and turn off the ones that you won't be using. Since you upgraded to Windows 10, by default Microsoft have turned certain apps on they want you to try. You will have to go through each one and set them accordingly. This is the place where you can change your browser to what you have been using. When you click the window icon, you will see the settings option located near the bottom. Click on it and a box will pop up, next you need to search for system and then you will look for default apps. Here you will see a list of apps, this is where you can set your default apps to what you want.

I have been using it for a week now and so far there are some bugs in it, and I feel safe in saying that Microsoft are aware of them. They do send regular updates to fix them. The only thing I don't like is, they don't give you any advance notice about the updates. Your computer will just restart and the updates are downloading and installing. If you're working online on a press release or blog, I must caution you to save your content constantly so  you won't lose it. There is good news after the updates are complete, it will bring you back to the site you were on after the updates are through. I recommend that you click on the windows icon frequently for updates. Click on SYSTEM and then search for Update and Security, then you can see if there are updates available. If so take the appropriate action.

There are several apps I will not be using and this is my personal decision, you can do what you like.

The apps I feel is not beneficial to activate are:

News, Money, Sports, Weather and XBox. The reason why I say this is because when you activate them, this means they will be running on your computer and can cause it to run slow. This is totally up to you. This concludes my post today and as I learn more about Windows 10, I will be posting additional information here.
