New Windows 10 Build

January promises to be a really busy month for Microsoft, buoyed no doubt by the special Windows 10 event that is on track to be held in just a few weeks’ time. And not only can we expect answers to a lot of questions regarding the upcoming OS, along with a glimpse into what’s cooking for a lot of other Microsoft solutions like Windows Phone 10 as well as a bit of a gaming, we can also look forward to a new preview version of the operating system. Gabriel Aul, the head of the Windows Insider program, generously confirmed this in a tweet, although he stopped shy of providing any further specifics. Well, apart from the usual and obligatory mention that we should brace for plenty of fixes. Just as a refresher, this new build of Windows 10 will only be available to those of you that are running build 9879, as Redmond made clear several times already. Obviously, some people are happily enjoying two newer versions that leaked recently. We’re talking about build 9888 and 9901 that come with a bunch of improvements. But this new official new version that (hopefully) will be made available later this month is sure to offer a much more refined and streamlined experience once it arrives...Follow this and all future releases up to and including Windows 10 General Availability later this fall at windows8newsinfo forum.

Users Wary That Free Windows 10

Ads, Perhaps the most divisive factor in the online world. Microsoft is apparently toying with the idea of a free Windows 10 option for users, but this has created a bit of a panic among users. Some feel that going this route might open up advertisements on the desktop. Amazon apparently does this with their Kindle line of tablets, allowing the option of removing ads with a small one-time payment. And although, Redmond has only said that they plan on being creative when it comes to pricing of their next OS, it is no yet clear if Windows 10 will be offered free of charge. Or at least, one variant of it will be free for users. Regardless, posts on the Windows UserVoice platform do confirm that some users are indeed afraid of such a thing, and want the operating system to be available as a paid product. Ads, for these users at least, could ruin the whole experience. The Start Screen along with a few Modern UI apps are the two likely environments where ads might show up, that is, if Microsoft pursues this strategy. But again, so far there have been no hints of such a scenario, this radical a change in direction. While Microsoft would surely want to monetize the free Windows platform if it ever happens, ads on the desktop might not really be the best way to go about it. Keeping a select few features premium-only might probably work better. Hopefully the upcoming January 21 Microsoft event that is actually focused on consumers should provide more details on not just the new features in development, but more details on how the software titan plans on approaching its new platform...Stay with windows8newsinfo forum as we continue following this rumor.

Google Dynamic Remarketing:

Have you not experienced the Amazon syndrome on your computer? Not only the online store can give you recommendations based on what you have been looking around on the web, it also gives you ads for the exact product you have been looking for – using Google Search. Normal PPC ads are displayed based on search terms used by users to reach a website. For example, if the user types “Best Tablets Under $200″, the website will contain ads related to tablets and electronics. If the user typed “how to troubleshoot Windows”, most probably, the ad could be a book related to troubleshooting Windows or a Registry Cleaner and likes. When it comes to Google Dynamic Remarketing, it is not based on search terms used to reach the website. It depends on the Doubleclick cookie residing on your computer that contains what products you were searching on Google ad partner sites and mobile apps. Thus, it remembers what the user was looking for and employs ads about that product. For example, if you were looking for a 5.1 speakers on any website, online store, YouTube or Google Plus page or even on a mobile app, the website displays speaker ads on different websites instead of using the normal PPC techniques. Though Google allows you to opt out of targeted advertising on different browsers and devices, it is hard to escape remarketing. There will be Double-Click cookies on your computer and ad networks will make use of that cookie to show relevant ads about products you have been searching for, on the Internet. You can visit the Google ad settings page to set your options. You can also save your opt-out preference permanently, with this browser plugin from Google and opt out of the DoubleClick cookie. It is available for Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome web browsers...For more turn you attention to windows8newsinfo forum.

 

 
Windows 10 Could Enjoy The Same Success As Windows 7 PDF Print E-mail

Windows 10 Could Enjoy The Same Success As Windows 7

The comparisons are already in! Industry sources have chimed on this before, comparing just how Windows 10 could be as successful as Windows 7, currently the most used OS in the world. But now analysts are also in on the same feeling. Microsoft’s modern operating system is still a work in progress as the time of this writing, but the whole world, it seems, is excited about this new version of Windows — thanks in no small part to how it tries to fix many of the annoyances users recorded in the original modern Windows 8. The more interesting bit is that companies are also showing interest in Windows 10, lending credence to the theory that the new OS might perform really well on the market once it launches next year. This is what Pacific Crest and Microsoft analyst Brendan Barnicle wrote in his note to investors, claiming that the new operating system could enjoy the same success as Windows 7, which, right now, still finds itself installed on well over half the desktop computers around the globe. So basically, the disappointing sales performance of Windows 8 could well be a thing of the past, by the time Windows 10 sees daylight, and this could only mean great things for the ecosystem. Not just desktop, of course, but tablets and smartphones too. Now only if we can get a confirmation regarding what Microsoft intends to call its next mobile OS!

New Aero Settings

Although a fair fraction of users that upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 8 wanted Microsoft to implement Aero UI effects in the new operating system, the company stuck to its guns. But despite this new approach to the user interface, some features of Aero continued to be available in the modern operating systems — with no option to turn them off. Aero Snap in particular, a feature that allowed desktop users to run two windows side by side, or snap them to one side of the screen. And it appears that the recently leaked build 9901 of Windows 10 comes with a simple option that allows disabling Aero Snap with a simple button. The “Windowing” option on the “System” panel in Settings offers an option called “Enable Aero Snap”, and it can be simply clicked or tapped to turn it off or on. Is this is the beginning of the end for Aero on Windows 10? Microsoft is so far focused on the flat UI, and seems keen to bring it to the desktop side of the operating system. This simple new option in the settings panel just makes it easier for users that want nothing to do with Aero...Finish reading at windows8newsinfo forum.

Exploding' Live Tiles

When it comes to Windows 10 on PC, much is already known in terms of enterprise design and features. After all, there is a public preview of Windows 10, which is downloadable to any laptop or PC right now. Still, the consumer end of Windows 10 is mostly a mystery at this time. Microsoft reportedly will detail more on that facet early next year. Another unclear aspect is in regards to the Windows Phone UI. Although Windows 10 spans across PC, laptop, tablet, phone and even the Xbox One, it is not clear what, if any, changes it brings to the Start screen, especially on the phone. Windows Central has been able to confirm with multiple sources that 'flyout tiles', also known as Mixview, will return to Windows Phone. Such a feature is returning because the concept was originally designed for the 3D Touch system that was to premiere with 'McLaren'. McLaren was the codename for the new flagship Windows Phone set for release for fall 2014 before it was abruptly cancelled this past July. (A prototype of that phone was recently spotted as confirmed on Twitter by The Verge's Tom Warren). At the time, Windows Central noted that although McLaren as a device is dead in the water, various aspects of the 3D Touch system would continue. Exploration into next-generation UIs and interaction paradigms is something that Microsoft is always working on in their Research division. Evidently, Microsoft has seen flyout tiles as something that could be used even without 3D Touch. Fast-forward to late 2014 and although 3D Touch is not something currently in the works (to our knowledge), the Mixview UI is alive and well...Turn to windows8newsinfo forum for more.

Potentially Unwanted Programs

Potentially Unwanted Programs, also called in short as PUPs, and how you can detect them, stop them from installing and remove them, if third-party software install them on to your computer. This form of grayware or non-malware may affect your privacy, as well as potentially compromise your Windows computers security. It is clear by the name – unwanted programs – that they are software or apps you don’t want on your computer, laptop, phone, tablet or other devices. Then how do they get into on your computers? We’ll discuss the different tricks some software use, to install these unwanted programs on to your computers. Potentially unwanted programs are programs that come bundled mostly with freeware and install themselves, with or without your knowledge, on your devices. This especially happens when you are installing a freeware. The software installation package tricks you into accepting the installation of third-party programs that you do not really want. And not only with freeware, some paid software also install third party programs that you don’t want! The potentially unwanted programs which come in the form of browser add-ons and toolbars are readily identifiable. Others like programs that run in the background are not easily identifiable. You may have to check out your Windows Task Manager to find out the PUPs. Though they may seem innocent, the PUPs are often spyware. That is, they may contain keyloggers, dialers and similar software built into them. In such cases, your anti-virus system, if good enough, should give you an alarm as and when you are installing them, knowingly or unknowingly. That is the time when you have to stop the installation and prevent these potentially unwanted programs from being installed. Even if the PUPs are clean, they take up the precious system resources and slow down your computers...Find out a lot more by visiting windows8newsino forum.

Windows 10  With A Subscription

There is a fair chance that Microsoft is looking to shuffle things up when it comes to how Windows 10 is sold and distributed among users. Rumors have been plenty in this regard. Even company executives are now hinting at a change. Kevin Turner, for example, discussed Windows 10 pricing options at the Credit Suisse Technology Conference last week — though with a lot of ambiguity. The Microsoft COO explained that the company needs to be creative and was learning to do new things, and do them differently. Clear hints at the reality that operating systems are now either free, or more or less, given away. Clear hints that Redmond will have to drop the traditional pricing model. Obviously, he is not at the liberty to disclose too much information at this point, but there is no doubt that Microsoft is at least consideration subscriptions. Or at the very least, the company is keeping all options on the table. Maybe a subscription service could be tabled for some select features, while making the rest of the operating system free for people to install and use? Stay up-to-date on the possibility of Windows 10 Subscription Version on our forum.
