Without leaving the Windows desktop to access your apps, the hybrid Start Menu in Windows 10 Pro looks similar to the menu in Windows 7 and combines it with the live tiles used in Windows 8’s Start Screen. The Start Menu has been enlarged to include these tiles, which can let you view how many email messages you have, the current weather status, and more. In addition to the live tiles, you still have enough room on the Start Menu to pin your most frequently used apps and files. Built with the strengths of the Pro versions of Windows 7 and Windows 8, Windows 10 Pro combines the best features of both engines to remain compatible with nearly all your peripherals and the computer’s internal components. Furthermore, it offers a similar design to the previous version of Windows, so you can easily start using Windows 10 Pro right away.
The web browser included with Windows 10 Pro is Microsoft Edge. This browser lets you write or type notes directly on webpages and share them with others. You can save your favorite websites for offline access as well as read online articles free of distractions by displaying only what you want to see in a Reading view mode. With Cortana integrated in Microsoft Edge, you can highlight a word on a webpage and have Cortana run a search and display the results in a mini window. Not just a part of your browser, Cortana is integrated into Windows 10, and she can can guide you to your answer by searching the Internet, Help menu, apps, files, and settings. You can also use Cortana to verbally record a task into her Notebook, where she keeps track of what you like and what you want her to do.
