Get Ready to do Great Things with Windows 10

Windows 10 is Coming
For the past several years, Sam Houston State University has used the Windows 7 operating system for PCs. Windows workstations are scheduled for an upgrade to Windows 10, beginning in May (after the conclusion of the Spring 2017 semester).
The look and feel for Windows 10 will be different, but most functionality will already be familiar to you. Some of the improvements include:
  • A more interactive Start Menu. Users will continue to see lists of software and files, but alongside them will be Live Tiles of apps. These can be changed for apps used more frequently, making life a little easier than in Windows 7. Start-Menu
  • As with Windows 7, users can search by clicking on the Start Button.Search

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • Edge is the default browser in Windows 10. It features a clean look with a tidy area called the Hub to keep the things collected on the web – including favorites, reading lists, browsing history, and current downloads.Edge

Stay tuned to future IT@Sam Newsletters or the Windows 10 project website for a peak at these improvements and updates to the timeline. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Service Desk.
