Finding Your Way Around Windows 10

  • Mike Halsey


The main user interface for Windows has undergone some significant changes in recent years. Windows 7 introduced a cleaner look, with an uncluttered desktop, and Microsoft’s acclaimed Ribbon interface for features such as File Explorer (called Windows Explorer at the time). Windows 8 brought the Start screen, filling your display with grouped live tiles—each of them an app capable of displaying live information right there, without having to be opened first. Many people didn’t like the move away from the Start menu, which went away when Windows 8 was introduced, but live tiles offered many benefits, including being able to quickly view the news and your email and calendar without having to open the relevant app.
