Windows 10 Technical Preview is available since October 1. But as the name suggests, it is a very early version of the operating system. (The final version will launch in the second half of 2015). The Technical Preview is meant for computers enthusiasts and IT people. It aims to give them a taste of what Windows 10 is going to be. But what if you are an IT expert and are not very comfortable with computers? Can you try Windows 10? Yes, you can.

Windows 10: Control Which Apps and Services Run at Startup PDF Print E-mail
Sunday, 12 October 2014 18:40
While modern versions of Windows have largely overcome the performance rot problem that was once the bane of users, it's still possible for applications to silently add auto-run utilities that slow down your PC's boot time and overall performance. Here's how you can manage which applications and services run when Windows 10 starts up and, more important, figure out which are necessary or useful. The key is Task Manager, which was nicely overhauled in Windows 8. You will occasionally be prompted by Action Center—the Windows utility which puts a flag icon in your system tray—to examine your startup programs. But you can run Task Manager at any time by using Start Search (search for task manager) or by right-clicking the Start button or taskbar and choosing Task Manager from the pop-up menu that appears.

How to enable the Notifications Center PDF Print E-mail

Microsoft may not have officially enabled the Notifications Center in the Windows 10 Technical Preview, but that doesn’t mean the rumored feature won’t eventually show up at some point. For now, an intrepid soul who goes by the Twitter handle @adeyblue tweeted instructions showing the world how to turn the feature on yourself. It’s pretty simple to pull off, and works whether you installed the 32-bit or 64-bit version of the Windows 10 Technical Preview.
How to turn on the Notifications Center in the Windows 10 Technical Preview First, download this zip file. For what it’s worth, before we extracted its contents onto our PC, we scanned it for malware, and Malwarebytes didn’t find anything. To be extra sure that this was all safe, we re-scanned the extracted folder as well. Once again, Malwarebytes didn’t find anything.

There are still lots of features hidden in PC Settings PDF Print E-mail

Rather unfortunately, and despite the fact that the Metro interface is significantly downplayed in the mouse-and-keyboard version of Windows 10, you sadly still have to go into PC Settings to tweak a lot of settings. Some settings, like Power and Sleep, can be modified from both PC Settings and Control Panel. Ditto Mouse and Touchpad; change the number of lines to scroll with each move of the wheel, and it updates in both control panels.
For the most part, PC Settings is just a simplified/cut-down version of Control Panel (which is actually kind of nice) — but in some cases, it’s still the only way to change some settings, such as the new notifications/toasts, the lock screen, and tweaking finer details like “downloading over metered connections.” The worst bit, though, is that the old Control Panel doesn’t link into the new PC Settings in any way — search for “lock” in Control Panel, and all you get a link to the ancient screen saver settings.

Windows 10 hack reveals desktop Notification Center PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 08 October 2014 21:41
Although Microsoft didn't announce a notification center as part of the Windows 10 Technical Preview, a new hack can enable the feature in semi-functional form. The hack, cobbled together by Twitter user Adrian and reported by Neowin, requires users to download a ZIP file with some third-party code, and to extract and run the included EXE patch. It certainly sounds a bit sketchy, so don't even think about it unless you're running Windows 10 in a virtual machine. Both 32-bit and 64-bit versions (warning: direct links to ZIP files) are available if you're feeling adventurous. Just keep in mind that much of the functionality doesn't appear to be working. Running the patch doesn't create a shortcut on the taskbar, so users need to reload the patch every time they want to view the notification center. The types of notifications that appear may also be limited, or they may not appear at all.

Microsoft Releases A Statement

The web was a chirpy place yesterday with news that Windows 10 tracks usage habits and collects all manner of data on how people that installed the preview. And now Microsoft has responded with an official statement on this. According to the company, it does monitor these habits, and the Technical Preview does come with tracking technologies built in, but this was a stated fact according to the company. Sure enough, Microsoft is not providing exact details of what is being tracked and how the data is collected. And while the Terms of Use of this new program does state that personally identifiable information is gathered, all of that is for the purpose of improving the operating system. For example, typed characters are logged for the purpose of enhancing autocomplete and spellcheck features. Standard stuff, some may say. But then again, some also say that the Windows 10 Preview should not be installed as the main operating system on your main computer or primary device. Microsoft has been very clear on this from the beginning...Want to know what Microsoft said visit us at windows8newsinfo forum.
