windows 10 has a lot more added features unlike the windows 7 and also windows 10 is a bit faster that the windows 7 

The Start menu looks very different from how it did on Windows 7. The live tiles found on Windows 8’s Start screen make a return here. But, don’t worry — you can remove all the live tiles if you don’t like them. Just right-click them and remove them. The Start menu looks a bit different, but it has all the usual features you’d expect — a list of all your installed applications as well as power options for shutting down or restarting your PC. Move your mouse to any edge of the Start menu and you’ll be able to resize it.

Many of the apps that come with Windows 10 are “universal apps,” which are the successor to Windows 8’s “Metro apps” or “Store apps.” Unlike on Windows 8, these apps actually run in windows on the desktop, so you may actually be interested in using them.

To get more of these apps, you’ll need to open the Store app included with Windows and download them from the Windows Store. There’s no way to “sideload” these types of apps by downloading them from the Internet, although you’re free to avoid them entirely and install traditional Windows desktop applications from the web. You can also mix and match traditional Windows desktop applications and new apps from the Store. They’ll all run in windows on your desktop.

Windows 8 was such a radical overhaul for Microsoft's desktop OS that many users have played cautiously and stuck with Windows 7. But with today's launch of Windows 10, a free upgrade for Windows 7 and 8.1 users, it's now time to upgrade to Windows 10. Find out why in our Windows 7 vs Windows 10 comparison.

For many, Windows 7 has been the benchmark against which to judge all others. Considering how confusing and ill thought out Windows 8's interface was (and still is in many ways), it's no surprise that many are skeptical of the free Windows 10 upgrade.

Well we have good news. Microsoft is back on form, with Windows 10 taking the best bits of Windows 7 and Windows 8 as well as adding some welcome new features. Plus, the upgrade is completely free for Windows 7 owners: no strings attached.

Windows 7 has a straightforward, well-designed interface that is very familiar to Windows users. Click on the Start Menu button in the bottom left corner and you can navigate your PC. When the minds behind Windows 8 decided to supplant this with a touch-focussed approach, it soon become apparent that not many users wanted big icons, charm bars, and menus swiping in from up, down, left and right.

In fact many people we talked to used tools like Classic Shell and Start8 to bypass this completely and revert to the Desktop mode with its simple Start Menu. Windows 10 doesn’t make the same mistake. The Start Menu returns from its brief hiatus, but now it’s been beefed with some useful new features. Live tiles from Windows 8 are now included on the right side of the menu, although if you’d prefer not to have these then they are easily removed. Alternatively there is also the option to run the Start Menu in fullscreen mode. The left side of the menu brings a sense of continuity with Windows 7 in that it contains options for regularly used apps, File explorer, Settings, and a Search bar.
