I feel like I always start a Surface review the same way, so here goes: I’ve always wanted Microsoft to build a laptop. A couple of years ago, Microsoft nearly did that with the Surface Book but it wasn’t enough. The Surface Book was top heavy, chunky, and it had a removable screen that I rarely detached. Like many Surface devices, it was different for the sake of being different, but it wasn’t the ultimate laptop that Microsoft claimed it would be. Microsoft has now finally created the laptop I’ve been waiting for, and it’s simply called the Surface Laptop. The Laptop has virtually everything a working person could ask for, yet strangely, Microsoft has bundled the Surface Laptop with Windows 10 S, a new, slightly crippled version of Windows 10 that only supports apps from the Windows Store. It can’t run any apps downloaded from a website that a pro user might want, such as Adobe Creative Cloud, Steam, or VLC. Microsoft knows there aren’t … [Read more...] about Microsoft Surface Laptop with Windows 10 Pro review
Windows 10 is getting a lot of attention thanks to the triumphant return of the Start menu. But don’t overlook the rest of the goodies that Microsoft has placed on the taskbar. Some of them are new and some of them are holdouts from Windows 7 or earlier, but all of them can be useful. Highlights include the new Task View tool, the Cortana voice assistant, and most of the organizational functions that long-time Windows users are familiar with.Start menuYup, it’s back. The Start menu in Windows 10 is a customizable mix of the familiar menu from Windows 7 and earlier, plus the Live Tile interface from Windows 8. Like previous iterations of both, individual programs and folders can be “pinned” to the menu for easy access. Users can expand the Live Tile section both vertically and horizontally, so that it takes up anywhere from a small portion of the desktop to the entire screen. To access the Start menu just press the Windows button on your keyboard, or … [Read more...] about Get to the task at hand with these Windows 10 taskbar tips
Microsoft is in an uncomfortable position with Windows 8. On the one hand it has Windows 7, which has just breached 450 million units in sales. It’s the software maker’s most successful OS in more than a decade, and may end up being its biggest ever. On the other hand, executives see the writing on the wall and continue to watch new operating systems like Chrome, Android, iOS, and OS X (Lion) creep up on PC sales. It won’t be long before Android laptops and desktops emerge, and OS X laptops begin to look more like iOS than Macs.With Windows 8, Microsoft is attempting to stop the momentum of Android before it invades the PC world. Borrowing heavily from the sleek “Metro” interface of Windows Phone 7, Windows 8 is an attempt to simplify the PC interface, make it touch friendly, make it battery friendly, make it more friendly to outside connections (GPS, Bluetooth, etc), make it work on ARM, and improve its resource management.
