There are only two types of computer users in this world: Mac users and Windows users. Only a small portion of the population uses Mac and the rest uses Windows operated computers. It is the iPhone and Android of the computing world.
The human race has gone far in the computing world. From the outdated Internet explorer to the most recent operating system that is Windows 10 (which debuted in 2015), we are yet to expect many more updates on this most commonly used OS today until a new version is released by Microsoft.
Windows 10 has been hailed by many as a vast improvement over the previous generation, marrying the best features of ‘classic’ Windows with the best bits of windows 8.
However, no software is exempt from glitches, bugs and other assorted compatibility issues – least of all Windows 10. While it’s not as bug-riddled as previous Windows versions, there are nonetheless a series of common problems that have been persistently identified by fans.
Experts in the field are also in the loop on common problems experienced by Windows 10 users. Some installation problems have already caused a lot of people to consider our services (https://www.harddriverecovery.org/data-recovery-services.html). It’s something Microsoft undoubtedly intends to improve:
Slowly but surely Windows 10 has been getting better and the sizeable Creators Update due this month will improve matters further. But the biggest (and, for some, deal-breaking) problem at the heart of the operating system has surfaced again…
This week Microsoft MSFT -0.74% pushed out a mysterious driver for Windows 10, Windows 8.1 and Windows 7 and it immediately began causing problems.
Listed only as “Microsoft – WPD – 2/22/2016 12:00:00 AM – 5.2.5326.4762” users were left confused as to what it did or what to look for to correct the problem. BetaNews quotes a Microsoft forum post user saying it “is the driver for Windows 10 Mobile devices” and Windows blogger Günther Born claims it is an Android driver.
And this is where Windows 10’s worst feature struck.
For Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 users the faulty driver was not a problem as it is an optional update that had to be manually installed. But Windows 10 owners didn’t get that luxury as the operating system installs all driver updates automatically and without warning.
Furthermore, Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 users who did accidentally install it can simply roll back their systems to a previous restore point, but Windows 10 does not create restore points automatically and the feature has to be manually enabled. This means affected users are in a lot more trouble.
The new Windows 10 maintains a delicate balance of the many old features Windows users love along with new features and updates people can’t get enough of.
Microsoft’s latest operating system is a much bigger hit than its ill-fated predecessor, Windows 8. In the year and a half since launch, Windows 10 has attained a 25 percent desktop operating system share, with more than 400 million copies installed—a faster adoption rate than any previous version of Windows. By comparison, all versions of Apple’s operating system account for just 7 percent of worldwide computers, according to data from NetMarketShare.
Microsoft bills the operating system as a “service,” meaning it’s continually updated via the cloud. A case in point is last summer’s Anniversary Update, which added impressive new features like digital ink support, as well as some helpful design improvements, many of which were prompted by the vast amounts of user feedback Microsoft has collected. In October the company announced that the Windows 10 Creators Update would arrive in “early 2017.” This will add a 3D-capable version of Paint (more on that below), and game broadcasting. More productivity, creativity, security and gaming features are on the way, too, according to Microsoft. The previously announced My People unified communication feature announced for Creators Update has been postponed to the next major update.
In between those major updates, Windows 10 users have received a completely updated version of the Photos app, new Cortana capabilities, and new features in the built-in Maps app. The most recent feature news between major updates comes in the Windows Mail and Calendar apps. Below, you’ll find more on all of these.
Many people have held on to the much-loved Windows 7 for a long time now, afraid to make the change. Those who were more open to changes shifted to Windows 8 a long time ago. However, Windows 8 did not have the appeal of its predecessor. Then came Windows 10 giving Windows users the best of both worlds.
Like any other piece of technology, Windows 10 has its pros and cons. Many issues were reported soon after its launch but over time Microsoft was able to fix those certain computer errors by continually updating the system – something we can still look forward to until the company decides a new system should take its place.
