Prepare PC for Windows 10
In the past, an old computer was often consigned to the scrapheap whenever Microsoft upgraded their operating systems for home or business users. However, Windows 10 should happily work on any machine capable of running Windows 7 or higher. If you’ve got an old or broken machine, it could be worth digging it out to try the new OS. All you need is a working display, storage and Internet connection to test the basics.
Windows 10 provides a huge new range of features for home computing and small business users and is a free upgrade, available by download. There’s the virtual assistant Cortana, so you can ask your PC for information via voice command, and there’s access to cloud storage so you can keep files online and open them from any location on any device. The new OS also offers online messaging and a new Start menu that shows you the latest news and social information. The new versions of Microsoft Office that are also launching later this year will look at their best on Windows 10.
You can try the public test version of the operating system now, in advance of the official launch. If you’ve got a desktop computer with a failed or faulty hard drive, some faulty memory (resulting in regular crashes), a weak graphics card or other issues, it can be cheaply repaired and ready to run the new OS. Notebook computers can also be fixed – from cracked screens to faulty keyboards and hard drives – making them the perfect test bed for this new operating system.
