Sure, you’ve used previous versions of Windows, but now you’ve just upgraded to some fancy new hardware, and it’s come with an even fancier new version of Windows: Windows 10. This class is for those making the jump from any previous version of Windows to the newest edition. There are some important new feature sets and control functions, such as the very different Start menu and the way it displays programs and apps with new “Tiles.” There’s the redesigned Control Panel; the addition of Windows’ own voice-command assistant, Cortana (like Apple’s Siri, but on a desktop or laptop computer). The new version of Windows offers several new ways to personalize the way you interact with your computer. There are also new and upgraded security features, including an improved User Account Control, Windows Defender, SmartScreen, and more. Some new laptop and desktop PCs also offer touch-screen controls, and Windows 10 works well with touch.
