With now only two days until the launch of Windows 10, we’re continuing our look at some of the new and improved features that users can expect to enjoy once they update from Wednesday onwards.
A regular task in the life of any student or teacher is researching and working on projects, often involving switching back and forth between various different applications and resources, and having to reference data or information from a variety of places while writing a report or creating a presentation.
This latest post from the Windows Blog looks at some of the ways that Windows 10 will afford users greater flexibility and multi-tasking capabilities:
The countdown to our Windows 10 launch continues. Today, we’re talking about multi-doing on Windows 10. Our lives are busier than ever requiring us to juggle more tasks, both big and small. Wouldn’t it be great if our devices could help make accomplishing our tasks simpler? With features like Action Center, Task View and Snap Assist, it’s all about removing the obstacles between you and ‘Done’.
Easily organize your screen
We often have multiple apps open at once, jumping between them to complete tasks. Windows 10 makes it easier to organize your screen with enhancements in Snap. Now you can quickly snap up to four things on your screen at once simply by dragging those apps into the corners. Windows will even suggest how to fill the gaps with other open apps.
Control your desktop
Sometimes the amount of content we run on our computer can get overwhelming. Task view in Windows 10 provides a simple way to see your open apps, docs and files in a single view to manage what you’re doing. And if your screen is getting crowded, you can create a virtual desktop to gain more space and work with just the items you want.
One place to take action
Our devices constantly keep us updated through notifications and it’s easy to get overwhelmed. With Action Center, your notifications and key settings are in one view so you can manage them or quickly take action—like replying to email or changing screen brightness without having to go through the app.
Windows 10 gives you absolutely the best experience for doing what you do, upgrade to Windows 10 and see what you can do! Check back tomorrow to see which Windows 10 feature we talk about next.
