Windows 10 has been very popular since it was originally released almost two years ago. It's fast, safe and offers browser extensions that diehard Windows users wanted for years.

If you remember, Microsoft made a huge push to get people to upgrade from older operating systems during summer 2016.

Still, if you're a Windows 10 newbie, it's not too late to start learning the ins and outs of Microsoft's latest operating system.

Let's take a look at some of the features you'll encounter right away and how best to use them. If you're a new Windows 10 user and are curious about how to do something, let us know. Otherwise, keep reading.
