Windows 10

Windows 10 is Microsoft's older flagship operating system. This operating system can be used on traditional computers and tablets making the user experience seamless. This encourages app developers to write for the platform as their apps can be used on multiple devices. More apps means more users and more users means more revenue for developers.

Note: Windows 10 has been superseded by Windows 11. Windows 10 will be support by Microsoft until October 2025. If you are buying a new device please ensure it will run Windows 11.

Today we are following three topics with regards to Windows 10. The upgrade itself, the Windows 10 Version 21H2 Update and Privacy.

Let us acknowledge we need to control our privacy as best we can with the tools we have. Below there are articles on the upgrade process and the Version 21H2 Update.

While it says Anniversary update, an older update, it is all applicable.
