4. Windows 10 Tweaks And Improvements

Microsoft previewed a number of new additions to Windows 10 in a yet-to-be-released build of the upcoming operating system. On Monday, Joe Belfiore, Microsoft corporate vice president, Operating Systems Group, gave attendees a sneak peek of an updated Start menu for Windows, a new jump list within the Start menu and a new Cortana interface and functions.

During a demo of Windows 10, Belfiore showed what’s called a jump list accessible when you click on the Windows 10 Start menu.

Belfiore also revealed a new way to display websites that have been translated inside its Edge browser (formerly known as Project Spartan).
