Windows 10 Technical Preview is an early look at the next edition of Windows. not going to be a Windows 9
The new release brings back the Start Menu, though with a Windows 8 twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don’t worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it’s still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)
Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.
If you’ve still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you’ll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X’s Mission Control – just click something to switch to it.
Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it’ll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you’re after and switch to it.
There’s also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.
The latest build 9926 now includes some of the features from the January 2015 Windows 10 announcment, such as Cortana.
As this is only a Technical Preview, we wouldn’t recommend installing it on anything important (we’ve already crashed it once). The safest approach is to run it in something like VirtualBox, where we found it just works, no issues or complications at all.
