Hello Windows 10
The familiar Windows Desktop is back, only better.

These are my Windows 10 screens, I have been using Windows 10 Beta since October 1, 2014.  Most of us will receive the Windows 10 Home version.  Your Windows 10 Desktop will look like this only it will have your icons on the Windows Desktop and your icons in the Taskbar.  It will be very familiar to you and so user friendly.

In the Taskbar you will have a few new icons which will make computing must faster and easier.

On the bottom left is the Start button, Search Box, a microphone icon, click on microphone icon and ask Cortana a question, or type in the Search Box.   The next icon is called Task View and will show Apps that are open. Click on the crazy e and it will open EDGE.

This is my Windows 10 DESKTOP screen.
Windows 10 has a Desktop Screen, just like Windows 7 -- only better. Windows 10 boots straight to the desktop.
Internet Explorer is taking a backseat to a new Web browser EDGE, which is faster than a speeding bullet.  Microsoft's Siri-like Cortana voice assistant you can talk to her and she talks back. If you ask her "who is your Daddy", she may answer "Bill Gates".
Right click an empty space on the Taskbar, and configure Cortana. I suggest you select Show search box. You can type in the search box or click on the Microphone and ask Cortana.  You can ask her to open WORD or What is the weather like or Who is the coach of Kentucky basketball? Laptops have a video camera. If you own a DESKTOP you have to have a Mike or Microsoft video camera, about $32, and you plug it in to your USB port.

This is my new Windows 10 START screen after Anniversary update.

It has a list of your most used apps, most visited folders and recently added software. Now the Apps are listed. To the left of the Apps are tiny icons that if you place you cursor on them there name will come up, like Documents, Pictures, Settings.  Power button on the bottom left (turn computer off).

For other Anniversary update changes Please go to:   and click on Windows 10 TIPS and Tricks. (Give it some time to come up)
