Amazing Windows 10 New Features with Cortana Assistant

Windows 10 keeps getting better

Here are some basic features of Windows 10 that every Windows user must know about them.

Microsoft has been testing its latest Windows 10 Creators Update in recent months, and it’s now ready to roll out to existing machines. While the previous Anniversary Update included more significant features, the Creators Update included some small and welcome additions. I’ve been testing Windows 10’s Creators Update for months now, and these are my favorite new features coming to Windows.


If you clean install Windows 10 Creators Update or simply purchase a new PC with Windows 10 preinstalled then you’ll notice Cortana shows up to guide you through the setup process. Cortana will use your microphone and speakers to listen to commands, including setting up a Wi-Fi network and keyboard layout. It’s a neat addition, but you can always use your keyboard and mouse instead of your voice if you want to set up Windows 10 in a more traditional manner.

Eye Control:

Windows is now more accessible with an on-screen mouse, keyboard, and text-to-speech experience using just your eyes; requires a compatible eye tracker, like the Tobii Eye Tracker 4C.

Additionally, Windows Defender Antivirus now has specific safeguards in place, along with default enhanced coverage that is delivered instantly via the cloud protection service. These and other security technologies protect against persistent ransomware campaigns like Cerber, Locky, and Spora, as well as global outbreaks like WannaCry, and Petya.

Windows 10 and Office together are the best duo for doing:

3D, now in Office, helps you increase visual and creative impact with 3D objects in your PowerPoint presentations, Word, and Excel documents. View, resize, and rotate a 3D object with the 360-rotation handle, pull content from the Remix 3D community or locally from your PC, plus even use a brand-new transition type, Morph, with 3D models in PowerPoint to create cinematic transitions between slides. This 3D technology builds upon the already-robust productivity experiences in Office, including inking with a digital pen.
