It’s the beginning of a New Year and it’s going to be a big year for tech, and especially for Microsoft Windows. The year begins with end of service for Windows 7. This means there will be no more security and stability patches, making your files, documents, and personal data highly vulnerable to hackers, malware, and theft. If you haven’t read it yet I have a large selection of help and how-to articles covering everything you need to know about Windows 7 end of service, what you can do about it, and how it will affect you. Click here for the articles.
The other event at the beginning of this year is the launch of Microsoft’s new Edge web browser. This is a completely new browser that’s built on the same engine as Google’s Chrome browser. It will be as compatible with websites as Chrome, support plug-ins, be as fast as Chrome, but crucially it will be more privacy-focused than Google’s browser. Launched on January 15th I’ll be marking the event with almost a month of tutorial, tips, hints, and how-to articles to help you get up to speed, and get the best out of this new browser, so check back each day for something new.
We have two new versions of Windows 10 coming this year too, one in the spring that contains highly useful new features such as being able to reinstall Windows 10 from the cloud, and I’ll be writing about these new features in the spring, and again in the autumn.
The end of the year though will see the release of new dual-screen Windows 10 devices, running an offshoot of the operating system called Windows 10 X. This new version of the operating system promises security and stability the likes of which we’ve never experienced in Windows before, so stay tuned for information on what this will mean, how you will be able to get it and use it, and how you will be able to make the best of it.
So it all begins tomorrow, January 14th, with Windows 7 end of service, and just one day later with the release of Edge. Make sure you stay tuned to Windows.do for the best hints, tips, and how-to articles and tutorials in 2020 and beyond.
