How To Manage your Programs and Windows Features in Windows
Windows 10 is officially launched and it's already on its way to many people's computers or devices. If you are eligible, you can go ahead and upgrade your Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 computer or device to Windows 10, either by using the reservation app, or the Media Creation Tool offered by Microsoft. If you are not satisfied with how the reservation app works and the fact that it is slow to provide you with an upgrade, then the Media Creation Tool is your only chance of getting Windows 10 today. Here's how to use it to upgrade your Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 computer, today:
As everybody knows by now, Windows 10 is available, so anyone eligible for upgrade can install it. If you reserved your upgrade you probably already have it on your hard drive, waiting for you to start installing it. However, if you didn't reserve your Windows 10 copy, the fastest way to still get it on your computer or device is to download it from Microsoft servers. Fortunately, Microsoft offers a tool called Media Creation Tool, which you can use to create a Windows 10 ISO file, a Windows 10 flash drive or directly upgrade your current computer or device to Windows 10. Read on to see exactly the steps you need to take:
Windows 10 is ready for launch and many tech publications have covered it in their articles. However, everybody talks only about its biggest new features. As is always the case with operating systems, there are many small things that are new to Windows 10 and most people have never heard about them. We tested Windows 10 during its development cycle and we know many of these small new features. We decided to share them with you in this article:
Windows 10 is said to be the best Windows so far and that means it has to meet plenty of high expectations. Luckily, Windows 10 brings some really neat and interesting new features: starting with a completely redesigned Start Menu and continuing with a better Desktop experience, to Cortana (a witty personal digital assistant), to Microsoft Edge (the most modern web browser built by Microsoft in recent years). It's no surprise to us that Windows 10 got everybody excited, at least in the tech scene. In this article we are going to share some of the best new features that you'll find in Windows 10. Let's get started:
All of Microsoft's operating systems, from Windows Vista onward, include UAC or User Account Control which is a feature that prevents apps and malware from making unauthorized changes to your computer. Still, there are times when some programs require administrator permissions in order to work properly or to run specific commands. Some users prefer to disable UAC entirely, but this is not a very good idea because you lose the ability to run Modern applications in Windows 8.1 and Windows 10. The great thing about the Windows ecosystem is that it offers the opportunity for you to run programs as administrator without needing to disable anything. These are the 7 methods we managed to find and if you know others, you are welcome to share.
While Cortana's native language is English, she's not limited to just that. She is able to understand and speak in other languages too. For each of the languages she knows, she is able to adapt not only her voice and speech style, but also the information she offers to her user: things like news, movies, sports or even stock exchanges. The question is how can you configure her to speak a different language from the language she arrived with. Read our tutorial to learn all the steps required:
After we showed you how to link a Skype ID with a Microsoft account in a previous article, it only seems fair to also explain to you how to unlink them at some point. The need to do this might be related to your desire to link the Skype ID to a different Microsoft account or simply because you want to stop logging into Skype with your Microsoft account. Regardless of the reason for your decision, you have to be careful when unlinking accounts because you will only be able to do this for a limited number of times.

Even in such a situation, Cortana is there for you: talk to her, and she'll talk back! She's always ready to chit-chat, tell you jokes or even sing for you!
