Making the choice to upgrade to a new operating system is always difficult. It requires becoming adjusted to a new look, a new type of file organization, and a new kind of navigation. At the same time, there are always concerns about whether the operating system will work as advertised. Microsoft Windows 10 Pro Edition takes care of all these issues by providing a simple, familiar design that allows users to feel comfortable the moment they install it. At the same time, it includes many great new features for customers to explore and utilise in their day-to-day life.
Just how does Microsoft Windows 10 Pro Edition 32-bit make itself so indispensable to modern business? It allows businesses to create a secure and collaborative environment with all the flexibility businesses need to compete and make their unique vision clear to the world. It includes all the well-loved features found in the Home edition as well as vast improvements geared specifically at business efficiency. These improvements include:
Build your domain
If one word could summarize how to improve your business efficiency it would be “connection.” Users need to be able to connect more effectively so they can share documents and ideas, communicate clearly and at all times, and maintain access to all their files and apps. Windows 10 Pro makes this possible by providing a server-level experience with its domain.
Work beyond the office
Some much of today’s work takes place outside the office. Whether it is remote workers, travelling members of a team, freelancers or contractors, you need access to your domain to go beyond the office walls. Windows 10 Pro has that ability through its remote desktops. With the remote desktop, all your employees can maintain access to files and apps no matter where they connect from.
Safer data with complete encryption
Business theft these days rarely includes people breaking into offices. Instead, it involves stealing sensitive data and using it to extra vast amounts of wealth. Windows 10 Pro makes sure this doesn’t happen to your business by providing advanced encryption for whole drives of data through BitLocker. This feature includes three different means of authentication to provide flexibility in how you want your data accessed.
Guard against malware
Users can set standards so that devices can only use a certain set of apps, plug-ins, and add-ons, thus preventing the accidental introduction of malware. Devices can also be set to allow all apps, plug-ins, and add-ons with specific options blocked.
Create and run new apps with virtual machines
Developing apps is a crucial part of creating an adaptable business that can handle all the specific needs that your business will encounter. However, this can be a dangerous business on a standard device in which such development can cause problems with the overall operating system. With the inclusion of Hyper-V virtual machines, users can now develop, test, and run apps with no such risk, since they are kept completely separate from the overall device.
Create app section
A virtual machine wouldn’t be of much use if Windows 10 Pro didn’t include the means to develop such apps. So, obviously, that has always been included. Users are able to create and store their apps, which can then easily be shared across the whole businesses.
Features from Windows 10
The Start Button
Previously removed in versions of Windows 8, it is time that Windows 10 brings the Start button back so that users can more easily access all their programs and most important features with a single click of a button. Upon opening the menu neatly located in the bottom left of your screen, you have the option to do basic tasks such as quickly start any of your installed applications, open your settings for Windows, or to shut down and restart your device or sign out of your user. However, you also have a new way of quickly accessing information with the new tile system, where you can embed applications such as a constantly updating calendar, set quick access buttons or browse the Windows Store.
The new Cortana assistant that allows users to make spoken commands that the operating system can then carry open, making a faster, more effective navigation of the whole Windows OS. Incredible new navigation tools are at your fingertips with Cortana. For Windows users who have grown jealous of Apple user’s reliance on Siri or Amazon user’s connection to Alexa, they can now brag about just how well-integrated Cortana is to Windows 10. Simply speak a command, and Cortana will run the right programs or do the right searches. It’s hands-free and easy to use.
Better Internet browsing is now available for customers with Edge. Since Microsoft’s Internet Explorer has long been seen and treated as the least appealing of the major browser options, Microsoft took notice of this and developed a new browser called Edge. This new web browser has already shown it is one of the best browsers available to this day, and it comes preinstalled in your new operating system. Edge is faster, has innovative features that you can’t find in other competitor browsers, and it’s perfectly integrated with Windows 10 and its own features such as Cortana.
Switching between a touch-based device and one that doesn't have touchscreen support has previously been a bit of a hassle with different operating systems. Windows 10 Pro solves the problem with Continuum, which automatically finds out the touch capabilities of a device and adjusts the system accordingly, sparing you the time and stress it could possibly take to change settings manually.
It’s a real pain for an app on one device to run in a different manner on another device. Universal Apps now allow users to enjoy the same experience on every device.
