Well, Microsoft already has discontinued services or support for Windows 7 and now almost every Windows user is using Windows 10 OS. However, there are some differences between Windows 7 and Windows 10 OS that I want you to know so that you will consider upgrading your PC to Windows 10. So without wasting much more time in the introduction, let’s move to the main topic. Here are the differences between Windows 7 and Windows 10.
Start Menu Bar
Windows 7’s Start Menu Bar is very simple and intuitive. You can control and customize your PC very easily just by clicking on the Start Menu button on Windows 7. Well, you can see the same design on Windows 10, but it’s comparatively improved. Start Menu button on Windows 10 offers some extra features and is even integrated with Microsoft Store and your browser.
Cortona is a voice assistant software on Windows 10 that works similarly to Google Assistant, Siri, and Amazon Alexa. You can directly interact with Cortana and ask various questions to it. Cortana allows you to do a variety of things, including searching queries, weather information, upcoming appointments, reminders, scheduling tasks, spell notes, and more. It is compatible with iOS and Android as well.
Well, Windows 7 allows you to create virtual desktops via v2.0 software that you can find on the Windows Sysinternals website. On the other hand, Windows 10 boasts a built-in option to create virtual desktops. You just need to click on the Task View icon in the Taskbar and tap on the New Desktop option in the top right corner and you are good to go.
Windows 7 is great for gaming but nowadays most games support Windows 10. So if you want to play the latest games, like Forza Horizon or any other, then you will need a system with Windows 10 or Xbox. In addition to it, there are some other features that you get only on Windows 10, such as support for Game DVR and DirectX 12. Windows 10 is undoubtedly necessary to get a fantastic gaming experience.
Updates and Security Support
Microsoft has already proclaimed that they will not support Windows 7 anymore, which means you won’t get any updates or technical support for Windows 7. On the other hand, the company offers upgrades for Windows 10 twice in a year and also has great security support which makes Windows 10 more appealing to people. Microsoft has been trying its best to add new features and make Windows 10 as powerful as possible since the company launched it.
Well, there are lots of benefits of using Windows 10 over Windows 7 and I would strongly suggest you go for Windows 10. I hope you liked this comparison. Thank you for reading the article. Have a great day!
