Microsoft Windows 10
Category: Supported Windows systems- client releases
Windows 10 aims to eliminate the user interface anomalies introduced in Windows 8 by adapting the system to devices without touch screens (such as PCs and laptops), restoring the Start Menu still used in Windows 7, the virtual desktop system, and the ability to run Windows Store applications both in windows and in full-screen mode, on different types of devices. Windows 10 is available for laptops and desktops, tablets, smartphones, other Windows products and the Xbox One console. Windows 10 is the most popular operating system to date.

The Windows 10 user interface changes its behavior depending on the type of device and available inputs. The new Continuum function provides a transition between the interface modes on laptops and tablets with docked keyboards. When the keyboard is docked, the user is asked if he wants to switch to a user interface mode that is optimized for the keyboard and mouse, or stay with the touch screen mode. A new virtual desktop system known as Task View has been added. Windows Store applications, which previously could only be run in full screen mode, can now be used in desktop windows. Program windows can now be divided into quarters of the screen by dragging them to corners. When the window is moved to the side of the screen, the user is asked to select a second window to fill the unused part of the screen. Windows 10 supports DirectX 12 libraries. The new version helps to support "console level performance" with reduced CPU usage and a graphics driver overhead. The Windows console, known as the Command Line, has been updated to include "external options" such as selecting the output text and the ability to use standard keyboard shortcuts such as cut, copy and paste. Windows 10 also adds platform (system level support without the need to install additional drivers) for the FLAC, HEVC and Matroska file formats, making them open in Windows Media Player and other applications natively. Windows 10 will be maintained in a much different tone from previous Windows releases. When Microsoft starts distributing larger amounts of updates for Windows 8 that add functionality (like interface improvements) beyond security patches and bug fixes, Windows 10 will follow a layered approach of rapid update releases. By default, Windows 10 will receive critical updates and security patches on an ongoing basis, but users and administrators will have the option to delay the automatic installation of non-critical updates or disable them completely. The system will allow most computers to receive frequent operating system modifications, while enterprise administrators will be able to opt out completely to guarantee a stable and controlled environment.
