Picture is from the Microsoft Windows Communication email from August 27, 2015

Last night, like many of you, I received a Windows Communication email from Microsoft that talked about many of the cool features in Windows 10, and provided links to learn about the features.  I skimmed through the gist of it, and went back to the feature called virtual desktops.

I have wanted virtual desktops for several years!  They are here!   You can see how this feature works (it is so easy!) by clicking on the link below.

Have fun with this!

A blog posting from the Microsoft Dynamics NAV team says that Dynamics NAV 2016 will be Windows 10 compatible upon release.  The team is currently working on compatibility on Dynamics NAV 2013, all releases,  and NAV 2015.

See their announcement at https://community.dynamics.com/nav/b/navteam/archive/2015/08/20/windows-10-and-dynamics-nav.

Windows 10 Get Started App

The new Windows get started app is supposed to help you learn Windows 10.  However, to find it, you need to type in the name – Get Started App – in the search tool. 

The search tool is located in the bottom left corner of the screen.

Or, you can look under the Windows KEY

And pull it up under the directory of apps, as below.  Note that you need to click on the words  ALL APPS to get to the apps listing.

I would love to know what you think of the “Get Started” app.

Updated to Windows 10 Pro

image

Updated my Windows 8.1 to Windows 10.  The process went smoothly.  All my files are intact.  Working through some issues around finding information.  I am using SEARCH before Cortana. 

Here is what I learned after the upgrade:

1. There is a GOD folder with different actions in it. More about that later.

2.  I am not a fan of the TASK VIEW.

3. Microsoft Edge has inking, and I like it.  You can write on a web page. and send it to your friends or to a client.

Cheers,

Judy
