Better for admins
WUB is a tool that helps administrators control when Windows 10 devices in their environment update. Since Windows 10 devices are constantly updated (as opposed to “Patch Tuesdays” of the old Windows), admins can use WUB as a tool for controlling and staggering updates as they wish.
Mobile Device Management
With new identity and device management options, users can log into Windows with a singular ID and access business apps and resources. Now admins can manage PCs and mobile devices with the same platform.
Microsoft’s new stripped-down, streamlined browser is a Windows 10 exclusive, and you can’t run it on Windows 8 or below. Only Windows 10 users can take advantage of web page annotations, the clutter-free Reading View and Cortana search integration. Whether it’s enough to oust Chrome or Firefox as your browser-of-choice remains to be seen.
Find settings easily
Settings is another area where Windows 10 does a better job of presenting information to the user than Windows 8 did. More of the key system settings have been moved over to the modern interface—search for Settings from the taskbar to see them—so you’re going to be spending less time hunting for Control Panel (though the old utilities and links are still there if you need them).
Set Cortana to hear you anytime you say “Hey Cortana.” When you ask Cortana a question, it will typically show you the answer via a listing of web links; you then open the search results in your browser.
With the new desktops comes a new way to keep track of your open apps on Windows 10. On the new operating system, you can either hit the new Task View button on the task bar or swipe in from the left edge of the screen to pull up a one-page view of all your open apps and files. It’s not much different from using the Alt-Tab combination shortcut on your keyboard, but this presents a convenient way for touch-oriented users to get an overview of what’s running.
Windows 10 Migration Services
Implementing a Windows 10 upgrade and migration is a significant undertaking for your IT team and the process of migrating to Windows 10 calls for different requirements on different operating systems. With some migrations for example, licensing and patching are of the utmost importance, while with others the hardware inventory and application compatibility must be tested due to Microsoft not supporting in-place or leapfrog upgrades. Additionally, some older machines may not have the resources to run the new operating system efficiently.
At BlueBox, our experienced team can assess your situation, provide a comprehensive overview and work with you to re-mediate any issues, ensuring a smoother migration. We will provide your team with a clear understanding of the migration process, including potential time, resource and technology challenges. Our extensive knowledge and client-focused approach will ease your navigation through the complex technology adoption and management process, ensuring you are set-up to take maximum advantage of the new Windows 10 features designed to help drive your business forward.
