A lot of people held off on buying a new computer, or downgraded them to Windows 7, because they don’t want to deal with Windows 8 interface annoyances. But with Windows 10, a lot of the clunky features of Windows 8 are gone. Here’s a look at what you won’t have to fight with in Microsoft’s next generation OS.
Full screen modern apps are a thing of the past. In Windows 10, your Windows apps will float on the desktop as normal resizable windows.
While a lot of these features do make sense on a touchscreen device, it’s a different story when you’re using a traditional PC or laptop.
The biggest complaint of virtually all Windows users have about Windows 8 is the lack of a Start menu. Sure, you could install a third-party utility like Start8 or Classic Shell to get the Start menu back, but now that isn’t an issue.
There is a way to get rid of most of the Windows 8 “features” listed above, and Microsoft did improve the UI for desktop users a bit over the course of three updates.
