I looked at a number of videos that offer the best “tips and tricks” on the Microsoft’s latest operating system. I found that vast majority fell into 3 categories:
- Ones that featured narrators who spoke with nearly indecipherable accents.
- Ones that featured narrators that spoke so fast that I couldn’t figure out what they were saying.
- My personal favorites: ones featured narrators who spoke too fast with nearly indecipherable accents.
After nearly loosing complete faith in the internet, I checked out my old standby CNET. CNET has a number of videos with clear explanations for Windows 10 as well as narrators with spoke in an understandable manner.
The videos proclaim what you probably already have heard: Windows 10 fixes many of the problems found in earlier operating systems. After hearing someone yell for the umpteenth time “The start menu is back!” with a level of enthusiasm usually reserved for transcendent sports moments, I grew a little suspicious.
Is it possible that Microsoft has deliberately screwed up some features, so that when they fix them later, people feel even more bonded to this OS? This is a classic technique used by domestic abusers and other grand manipulators. President Lyndon Johnson used to berate subordinates unmercifully and then give them a car. Of course, for this to be true, we would have to believe Microsoft to be pure evil. I leave this to your own judgment.
Below are three videos that I found helpful. You can also find more CNET videos in their How to webpage.
