Windows 10 Improvements as Noted by ITS

  1. Boot time is remarkably quicker than Windows 7
  2. Flat and bold styling, much more modern look
  3. Separate search box which now includes Windows Store apps and web search, with results shown in a much more organized fashion.
  4. Includes Cortana, the digital personal assistant. This adds two key features. Firstly, it monitors things like your email, calendar and search to provide useful information, such as when you need to leave for your next appointment.
  5. Windows 10 supports Dual monitors and now different monitors can now have different backgrounds, with different slideshows, too. Pictures can also now be set to span across all your monitors.
  6. Touch Screen has more touch-friendly icons and gestures there's also the easy tablet mode which at the touch of a button will switch a device between a more conventional multi-windowed interfaces with a normal Start Menu to a full screen mode using the Start Screen.
