Didn’t see THAT comin’ did I? 😀 Windows 10 Anniversary Update. I’d read about it back in the summer. Now it’s autumn in England, I’ve finally got it, apparently. Well, that’s what I woke up to just now. My laptop having fed itself on the new update. So what IS new? Well, they’ve made changes to the Start menu:
Power; Settings; File Explorer and my Username and avatar are on the far right – no longer in the main App list. Connect (to Internet) app is added. Then your most used list follows. All Apps clickable button has been removed. Your Apps list just begins and you search through by alphabet for what you want to pull up and use.
Remember! I’ve only just got up and found this, so if there’s anything really new to include, I’ll do that later. I know there’ll be those who squirm and scream: WHAT HAVE THEY DONE? But they’ve just tidied things up a bit, and added a bit of online security, apparently. You can’t have too much of that!
Windows 10, then, gets a bit of a facelift, but not enough to really notice, unless you’re a bit weird and have to dig into it all. Most of the changes are for Microsoft’s own web platform. If you’re using another browser, you probably won’t be much affected by any changes. I did notice a couple of days ago that Chrome had been updated and given its own facelift. That has got nothing to do with Microsoft.
So what do I think? I think I’m going back to bed if nobody minds!
