Windows 10 is fast, safe and it'll soon have browser extensions that die-hard Windows users have been asking for for years. The new version of the operating system has already been downloaded over 300 million times since last summer. If you are on the fence on whether or not to upgrade, here are some of the features that might help you decide.
Improved Start Menu: Windows 10 brought back the Start menu. To almost everyone's disapproval, the Start menu had disappeared in recent versions of Windows. You will be happy to see it's back where it belongs, like the return of an old friend.
Windows Hello: One interesting type of technology being introduced is biometric user authentication. Dubbed Windows Hello, this new layer of security employs facial recognition, iris scanning or fingerprint authentication for user sign-ins. Newer machines with the infrared and fingerprint scanning hardware should all be compatible with Windows Hello since Microsoft built it directly into Windows 10 with a wide support for biometric devices.
