Windows 10 is familiar and easy to use, with lots of similarities to Windows 7 including the Start menu. It starts up fast and resumes fast, has more built-in security to help keep you safe, and is designed to work with software and hardware you already have.
Windows 10 comes with great built-in apps like Maps, Photos, Mail & Calendar, Music, Movies & TV. All these apps use OneDrive to back up your information and sync seamlessly across your Windows 10 devices, so you’re never far from what you need.
