Windows 10 is rumoured to be released on July 29th, and the download will be 3GB when its available.

Unlike Windows 8 which was seen to be more suitable for tablets and touchscreens, Windows 10 has a special feature called Continuum which means people using a computer with a keyboard and mouse will see the classic desktop view, but switching to a tablet or smartphone will see it alter to touchscreen tiles (like Windows 8).

It will also include a new browser called Edge which allows users to annotate webpages. This will most likely replace Internet Explorer.

Finally, the start menu will return! Most of our customer’s issues with Windows 8 is that there is no start menu, so we almost always install special software to add one. But with Windows 10, the start menu is back.
