Familiar and better than ever

Familiar and better than ever

Windows 10 is familiar and easy to use, with lots of similarities to Windows 7 including the Start menu. It starts up and resumes fast, has more built-in security to help keep you safe, and is designed to work with software and hardware you already have.

This combines the strengths of Windows 8 with Windows 7.

This method is more personal, which is precisely what makes it more secure. And, with no more login passwords to slow you down, you can quickly get right into what you want.
