Five ways Windows 10 Professional lets you have it all

08 May 2019

Windows 7 was one of the best operating systems of its time, but all good things must eventually come to an end as end-of-support for Windows 7 occurs on January 14, 2020. 

This means that Windows 7 devices will continue to start and run, but users will no longer receive updates or support, including new security updates from Microsoft.

There’s a major silver lining in that cloud – Windows 10 Professional has matured to provide everything you could dream of in an operating system for your business. It’s the definition of a modern desktop that gives you the most productive and secure computing experience.

It’s fast, it’s reliable, and it looks sleek: Here are five ways Windows 10 Professional lets you have it all.

Security, durability, and great design

It can be overwhelming and intimidating when choosing a new computer. But if you go into it understanding what's new, and what to expect, there's a good chance you'll make a good choice.

Windows 10 Pro provides security features including antivirus, firewall, ransomware and internet protection, all at no extra cost – and that’s a great way to keep your new computer protected against cyber threats. 

Feel good about a PC that responds to you

Type, talk, touch the screen, or even use a digital pen —a new PC powered by Windows 10 Pro gives you options to get things done - however you want to do them. 

Windows Ink technology provides a fast and precise platform for digital pens. And with apps like Word, PowerPoint, and Outlook, you can stay in the flow wherever you go. No more printing out documents to sign, just open it up and sign away (but maybe read whatever you're signing first).

Focus on what matters to you

With features that can save you steps and stop distractions, if you need to be heads down or just need to keep up, Windows 10 Pro can help you stay focused. 

If you’re in need of some distraction-free work time, turn on Focus assist to block notifications, sounds and alerts. And when you turn it off, you’ll get a summary of everything you’ve missed.

Find what you need, faster

Can’t remember where you saved it? Or what you searched for? Windows 10 Pro helps you find what you need, faster. Windows 10 Pro features a search bar that can find whatever you need.

Sometimes it’s easier to remember when you worked on something, not where it is. That’s why there’s Timeline. A quick and easy way to scroll through the documents, apps, and websites you recently worked on. You can find the past 10 days’ worth, all in chronological order, ready to go.

See what’s new with Tips

Did you know Windows 10 Pro has an app with tips, tricks and everything you need to know about the latest updates to Windows? It’s called Microsoft Tips — just type “Tips” in the search box on the taskbar or find it in the Start menu. 

Open the Tips app and you’ll land on the Welcome page — your home for quick tips, videos and other “Cool! I didn’t know that” info about the latest updates to Windows 10 Pro. Dive right into a settings page to adjust the look and feel of Windows or jump to a topic within the Tips app to learn more about a particular feature.

The Windows you know, only better

Life happens fast

And with a new Windows 10 Pro PC by your side, you can easily keep up.

Not only are modern computers fast, durable, and have batteries that last longer*, the average price for a great PC is considerably less than it was five to ten years ago. New PCs also offer new capabilities. From touch screens, to digital pens and facial recognition these features will save you steps, are delightful and easy to use.

The best part? There are a lot of great Windows 10 Pro devices to from. From hard-working all-in-ones, to tablets that act like a PC. Get more done with longer-lasting batteries and faster processors.  And many of them come with advanced ink, biometric, and voice experiences you won't find anywhere else.
