The latest and greatest from Microsoft has tons of new upgrades but aside from being cutting edge, what are some other reasons to switch?
Speed- Life and business rarely pause, except when your computer is slow! Windows 10 Features faster speeds for start-up and beyond. This OS actually loads faster than the Mac OS. Aside from faster start-up you will enjoy operating speed boosts. Whether you use your computer for gaming, browsing or running your business, quick is king in technology.
Security- Is technical security a top priority for you or your business? Windows 10 features enhanced security. This OS requires a code right when started, a feature that can be bypassed on Windows 8. Although it can seem tedious to reenter a password, it will help keep your information secure.
Backup- We all know backing up your files is important, but we don’t always do it. Windows 10 offers continuous backup to an external device, a feature not previously offered on older versions. By simply changing the settings and connecting to an external drive or the cloud you can make sure all of your files are safe and sound.
So now that you have decided to make the switch, what needs to be done to prepare? You will want to make sure you have enough gig space on your hard drive. You will need at least 16GB of free space to install. you can free up space by clicking the “Desktop Clean Up” button on your device and deleting unneeded programs. You will also want to make sure you back up your data onto an external backup or the cloud.
