Microsoft finally closes its free upgradation to Windows 10 for all users on 16th January, 2018. Microsoft had initially set the date of 29th July, 2017 but the date was extended to 31st December, 2017 due to previously unknown reasons. Nonetheless, it was again extended till mid-January to give the opportunity of free upgrade to Windows 10 to as many people as possible to give the opportunity of free upgrade to Windows 10 to as many people as possible.
Windows 10 free upgrade over:
Assistive technology was the primary achievement seen in Windows 10. The assistive technology site was recently updated to say: “If you use assistive technologies, you can upgrade to Windows 10 at no cost as Microsoft continues our efforts to improve the Windows 10 experience for people who use these technologies. Please take advantage of this offer before it expires on January 16, 2017.”
Due to this reason, it was important to target those for whom these updates were thoroughly made in Windows 10. The extending of deadline mystery seems to get solved by this alibi. It was done intentionally as the company wanted the customers to upgrade to the latest operating system.
Features of new Windows update:
The Windows 10 comes with the most up-to-date APIs, allowing developers to offer their apps and products to more users. Further, data from NetMarketshare suggests that around 7% of users had not upgraded to the latest version by July 2016, notes PCWorld. “Advanced bug fixes”, “patches” and period updates; these were the major insights of the Windows upgrades in Windows 10. Now, there will be no upgrades to Windows 8.1, and no new features and bug fixes either. However, the company has added the operating system to extended support. It will keep offering security updates for the next five years until 2023, reportedly.
New face of Control Panel:
There has been a number of complaints from the users in past several years from Microsoft that has stopped upgrading and fixing old errors and constantly adds new features which creates a mess for them. However, things are changing with the Windows 10. Microsoft has changed the old features and literally modernized computing functions from past versions. It has moved the settings into a whole new app, disintegrating it from the old Control Panel. Microsoft could even come up with a single application, a one-stop solution for every major setting and configuration.
Also, the fonts are being revolutionized by putting them separate and buying them from the apps store, rendering the Office applications simpler and only useful up to the needs of user.
The steps taken by Microsoft to improve the overall view have been astonishing and are promising about the future of revival of Microsoft Windows.
