Above all, it provides a familiar and productive experience—so your sole focus can be on doing great things.

Familiar and productive user experience

Windows 10 provides a familiar and productive experience across your PCs, tablets, and phones. The experience takes the familiarity of the Windows desktop and merges it with recent advancements, making you an expert from the start, and giving you the freedom to do great things.

  • Start menu – The Start menu is back and better than ever with Live Tiles and adjustable sizes.
  • Microsoft Edge & Internet Explorer 11 – Microsoft Edge is the all-new browser built to give you a better web experience—one that’s made for easy sharing, reading, discovery, and getting things done online.
  • Continuum – The best screen is always the one you’re on. Windows enables your apps and content to display beautifully in all modes, whether using desktop or tablet mode
  • Windows apps – Windows 10 lets you run the apps you need, including the familiar Office experience, Windows Store apps, existing desktop apps, the long list of business solutions for SMBs, and online web apps in the new browser, Microsoft Edge.
Enterprise-grade security

Windows 10 is designed for the world’s largest and most demanding enterprises and governments to help protect their data, devices, and identities. That same level of security is also available for your business, giving you peace of mind that your business is more secure.

  • Windows Hello and Microsoft Passport – Microsoft Passport is an easy to deploy two-factor password alternative that is accessible by using a PIN or Windows Hello, which provides enterprise grade security and supports fingerprint, facial, and iris based recognition.
  • Trusted Boot – Windows 10 closes off the pathways that allow malware to hide from the OS by starting first. Using hardware-based virtualization, key processes are also isolated from the system so they cannot be tampered with.
  • Enterprise Data Protection – Enterprise Data Protection makes it easier to perform data separation and containment of corporate data – wherever it might be. Unlike most 3rd party solutions, Windows does not require containers, but protects data wherever it lives on the device
  • Conditional access – Conditional access services that help prevent untrustworthy devices from gaining access to corporate resources.
Light-touch management
  • Dynamic provisioning and in-place upgrade – When upgrading your Windows 7 and Windows 8 devices, Windows 10 does the work, preserving data and settings, as well as updating apps and drivers when possible ‒ simplifying deployment and making sure your people don’t miss a beat.
  • Domain Join and Group Policy – Windows Pro still comes with the tried-and-true client-server technologies that have helped businesses manage and secure their technology for years.
  • Azure Active Directory Join – User identities can now be shared across Windows 10 and Office 365 using Azure AD Join. The shared login will work on PCs, tablets, phones and new form factors, making logins and passwords easier to manage.
  • Mobile Device Management – Windows 10 allows a simpler approach to device management that lets businesses take advantage of cloud-based MDM solutions to manage all your devices with a single console. You can even use Office 365’s MDM features to manage your Windows 10 devices.
  • Windows Update for Business – Windows Update for Business can help businesses reduce management costs, provide control over update deployments, offer quicker access to security updates, and provide access to the latest innovations from Microsoft.
Range of innovative devices

  • 2-in-1 devices – Microsoft has introduced 2-in-1 devices, a brand new category that provides a dynamic tablet and laptop experience in a single device, including the popular Surface devices.
