personal computer or communicator?
What to do with your new windows 10 device/communicator.
Google has android device/phones. Apple has IPhone. But nobody has
more Servers, Desktops, Tablets and now phones then Microsoft in
use. (How many
keyboards have a windows key?) Most new PC’s come out of the
box with Windows 10 installed. For those with Windows 7 and 8 the
free Windows 10 update will end on July 29, 2016.
The club has purchased a new laptop. It is a Dell
Inspiron 15 (3558) with Windows 10 Home installed. After installing
Windows 10 many times on older systems and new ones. I saw an issue
with the user experience. This is what Microsoft calls it. You are
steered to a Microsoft account. As you go through setup, you will
end up with a MS account. But that’s cyber life. They all
want your account, Google did it, Apple did it, Verizon did it and
so on. Back to point, out of box laptop. There is a workaround for
these issues if you are concerned about security and keeping the
system clean. With a few easy steps/guidelines to follow, the transition
to Windows 10 may be easier. We’ll take a look at the new
GUI (graphic user interface) all key system apps are there and some
you do not need. Windows 10 is a device driven operating system.
The workaround setup will/should work for the internet installed
update. We’ll look at some features that work in all Windows
10 devices. As always we will learn to love Windows and Microsoft.
