Microsoft KW9-00140 overview

  • 1Description

Install the 64-bit Windows 10 Home operating system from Microsoft on your notebook or desktop to enhance it with a hybrid Start Menu, Microsoft Edge web browser, and Cortana personal assistant. Without leaving the Windows desktop to access your apps, the hybrid Start Menu in Windows 10 Home looks similar to the menu in Windows 7 and combines it with the live tiles used in Windows 8's Start Screen. The Start Menu has been enlarged to include these tiles, which can let you view how many email messages you have, the current weather status, and more. In addition to the live tiles, you still have enough room on the Start Menu to pin your most frequently used apps and files. Built with the strengths of Windows 7 and Windows 8, Windows 10 Home combines the best features of both engines to remain compatible with nearly all your peripherals and the computer's internal components. Furthermore, it offers a similar design to the previous version of Windows, so you can easily start using Windows 10 Home right away.

The web browser included with Windows 10 Home is Microsoft Edge. This browser lets you write or type notes directly on webpages and share them with others. You can save your favorite websites for offline access as well as read online articles free of distractions by displaying only what you want to see in a Reading view mode. With Cortana integrated in Microsoft Edge, you can highlight a word on a webpage and have Cortana run a search and display the results in a mini window. Not just a part of your browser, Cortana is integrated into Windows 10, and she can can guide you to your answer by searching the Internet, Help menu, apps, files, and settings. You can also use Cortana to verbally record a task into her Notebook, where she keeps track of what you like and what you want her to do.

Utilizing Windows 10 Home's Continuum feature on a 2-in-1 convertible notebook allows you to switch back a forth between tablet and notebook mode. When you only want to use the display's touchscreen feature in tablet mode, Continuum changes the layout of the Windows 10 desktop screen and the apps go full screen, so you can easily use your fingers to perform actions and tap your selections. Additionally, it is designed to connect all your Windows 10 devices together with universal apps. These apps provide the same features whether you are working on a desktop computer in the office or finishing the task using a Windows 10-compatible smartphone while commuting back home.

Microsoft has redesigned the Setting menu within Windows 10 Home to make it easier for you to customize your system's settings, such as Devices, Network & Internet, Accounts, and more. On the bottom right of the taskbar, you get an action center icon that expands to display your important notifications from your apps and Windows 10 Home. You also have quick access to frequently used settings and apps, so you can turn on your computer's Bluetooth or adjust the screen's brightness level without having to go through the entire menu.

Another feature of Windows 10 Home is the ability to neatly snap up to four applications side by side so you can clearly view the content. In addition to this, you can create multiple virtual desktop workspaces that contain different apps pertaining to your work or entertainment. Included along with Windows 10 Home are apps such as Maps, Photos, Mail & Calendar, Music, Video, and the Windows Store for additional content.

Start Menu
Combining the strengths of Windows 8 and Windows 7, you get a familiar operating system with a hybrid Start Menu that contains your important content and frequently used programs. You can pin the apps and favorites so they're ready and waiting for you.
Microsoft Edge
The Microsoft Edge web browser lets you write or type notes directly on webpages and share them with others. In addition, it allows you to read online articles free of distractions as well as save your favorite websites.
Enhanced Viewing
Snap up to four apps in place so you can see all open tasks in a single view. You can even create virtual desktops when you need more space or want to group apps or things by project.
Windows Store
All your purchases made on every Windows 10 device can be viewed in the Windows Store. You can access apps, games, music, movies, and TV shows on your compatible computer, tablet, or smartphone.
Cortana
With your virtual digital personal assistant enabled, you can get instant access to key actions with Cortana. It learns over time to better help you accomplish your tasks by delivering reminders at the right time and place.
Multiple Ways to Interact with Your Computer
Besides using a keyboard and mouse, Windows 10 supports touch features so you can write, tap, and scroll through what you're doing.
Continuum
The Continuum feature allows you to easily switch from mouse and keyboard to touchscreen—and adjusts the OS to handle each scenario more efficiently. You simply plug or unplug your peripheral and choose your mode from a pop-up alert. When you only want touchscreen support, all apps go full screen and you can use gestures to navigate. When you go back to desktop mode with mouse and keyboard, apps revert to desktop windows and are more efficiently navigated with a keyboard and mouse. You can even attach a Windows 10 smartphone to an external monitor for a near-desktop experience.
Access Xbox One Content
With an optional Xbox Live Gold membership, you can stream and play a select number of games from your Xbox One directly on your Windows 10 PC. Other features include the ability to record gameplay and compete against console players on supported games.
Packed with Helpful Apps
Windows 10 Home comes with built-in apps like Maps, Photos, Mail & Calendar, Music, and Video. These apps use Microsoft OneDrive to back up your information and sync seamlessly across your Windows 10 devices, so you're never far from what you need.

Microsoft KW9-00140 reviews

Windows 10 Home (64-bit, OEM System Builder DVD) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 53.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from If it ain't broke, don't fix it I bought Windows 10 for its DirectX 12 support and to ensure I can always run new software, NOT because I wanted to experience Windows 10. But I was willing to keep an open mind. It seems Microsoft hates its customers. This OS will be a bandwidth leech if you let it, and some of its features are intrusive, wasteful and just downright annoying. Take Cortana, for instance. At any given time, Cortana was using 50MB RAM, and for what? An extra search bar I don't need? Disabling Cortana was impossible using Windows features, so I had to download a third-party tool to do the job. Also, with Windows 10 you can no longer stop Windows Update entirely. I want to choose when I update my computer, not when Windows decides for me. When I shut down my system, I don't want to wait for Windows to update! Initial installation was easy, but customizing it to perform how I want it to... not so much. This version should be priced much lower, such as its version number, in dollars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works exactly as advertised I can't speak for the DVD since I used the Windows website to generate an ISO to put on a USB 3.0 Thumb Drive (faster and most updates already included). The license key was valid and activated without issue. I feel stupid saying this, but I looked for the license key for a few minutes before realizing there is a small silver scratch-off area on the DVD envelope so if you're having the same issue I did, keep an eye out for that. Windows 10 as an OS has been fine so far on my gaming PC.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from it works fine Installation was easy. I use a 1440p monitor so the scaling options are nice and simple. Its just that more applications need to adopt dpi awareness. I use Microsoft Edge now because text looks blurry on Chrome as they haven't implemented dpi awareness yet. Edge is fine but doesn't have extension or full screen support. Any application without dpi awareness looks slightly blurry, which is a lot of them unfortunately. Just an aesthetic issue though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Windows as grown up! I have been a Mac guy for 30 years. What changed me is that Mac stopped letting users upgrade their own machines (e.g., RAM, HDD, GPU, etc.) The new Mac Pro was all soldered together with no upgradability. As my old Mac Pro tower was huffing and puffing along, I considered a PC build for photo editing. Loading Windows 10 onto my machine was a breeze. Much more so than XP or Windows 7. Windows has really grown up in its user friendliness, and is every bit comparable to Mac OS X. The system runs very smooth on 16GB of RAM and a i5-7500. I am still getting used to Windows gamma on the screen, but I'm sure that will be fine in time. So 5 stars from this Mac convert.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Coming back from Mac... Windows 10 is a really well put together os. After being on Mac for almost 6 years this is an easy transition back into Windows. Easy installation and updates don't seem as constant or forced as Windows 8.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is windows 10, This is a system builder license and when activated is immovably linked to the motherboard so if you want to move it to another computer some day, you cannot. Also be aware that the product key is covered over with a scratch-able surface do it carefully so you don't scratch off some of the key. Its there to assure you that the dvd has not already been used. As far as the product goes win 10 is win 10.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works with Parallels on a Mac Purchased to run with Parallels on a MacBook Air. Installation went smoothly and all is well so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worthwhile upgrade on my 8 year old HP Pavilion laptop I have an 8 year old HP Pavilion laptop which was running Vista. I replaced its 250 GB IDE drive with a 240 GB Solid State Drive (SSD) I purchased at B&H with the WIndows 10 software. After updating the firmware on the laptop and formatting the new drive, I was able to install Windows 10 on the system very easily. The install was straightforward and with the new SDD, the old laptop runs Windows 10 beautifully. The new version of Windows is a big improvement over Vista and my old laptop now runs like a new machine. Thankyou B&H!
