This is obviously a hot-button topic in today's post-Snowden world, but parsing through this post, I see a fairly evolutionary and even obvious set of improvements. Which doesn't do a thing to diminish their usefulness or necessity. Or the fact that these improvements apply to consumers too.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/windows-10/microsoft-details-windows-10-security-enhancements" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://winsupersite.com/windows-10/microsoft-details-windows-10-security-enhancements#comments Windows 10 Wed, 22 Oct 2014 15:59:00 +0000 45351 at http://winsupersite.com A Quick Look at Windows Technical Preview Build 9860 http://winsupersite.com/windows-10/quick-look-windows-technical-preview-build-9860 <div class="field-deck"> A pretty seamless, if odd, upgrade </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Now that I have finally updated all of my PCs to the latest Windows Technical Preview version, I can take a quick step back and see what we have here. In short, nothing profound, but a couple of nice functional additions, or more realistically, the start of a couple of nice functional additions. As Microsoft promised, the preview is coming in hot, and this build is not polished in any way.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/windows-10/quick-look-windows-technical-preview-build-9860" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://winsupersite.com/windows-10/quick-look-windows-technical-preview-build-9860#comments Windows 10 Wed, 22 Oct 2014 13:50:00 +0000 45321 at http://winsupersite.com Windows Technical Preview Feature Focus http://winsupersite.com/windows-10/windows-technical-preview-feature-focus <div class="field-deck"> Here's what's new in Windows 10 </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Now updated for build 9860! As you might expect of a major new Windows version, Windows 10 provides a number of new features and improvements over previous releases such as Windows 7 and Windows 8. In this series, I am exploring these features as they appear in the Windows Technical Preview. I'll be updating this series regularly going forward.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/windows-10/windows-technical-preview-feature-focus" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://winsupersite.com/windows-10/windows-technical-preview-feature-focus#comments Windows 10 Windows 10 Windows Tue, 21 Oct 2014 20:26:00 +0000 44351 at http://winsupersite.com Microsoft Delivers First Update to the Windows Technical Preview http://winsupersite.com/windows-10/microsoft-delivers-first-update-windows-technical-preview <div class="field-deck"> Rapid release indeed </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Delivering on its promise to provide Windows Technical Preview users with frequent updates, Microsoft today provided the first new release of this pre-release Windows 10 version, build 9860.

These solutions have gotten dramatically more sophisticated in recent years, allowing you to run Windows applications side-by-side with Mac OS X apps. And the one I'm using now, Parallels Desktop 10, is particularly amazing. </div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/mobile/windows-mac-virtualization" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://winsupersite.com/mobile/windows-mac-virtualization#comments Desktop virtualization Mac Mac OS X Mobile Windows Sun, 19 Oct 2014 21:14:00 +0000 45161 at http://winsupersite.com Windows 10 Tip: Clean Up the Home View in File Explorer http://winsupersite.com/windows-10/windows-10-tip-clean-home-view-file-explorer <div class="field-deck"> Spring cleaning in October </div> <div class="node-body article-body">One of the weirder—and I have to think unfinished—changes we see in the Windows Technical Preview is the new Home view in File Explorer. This view presents what one has to assume Microsoft believes is useful information—your File Explorer favorites, frequent folders, and recent files—but I find it to be quite cluttered and borderline useless. Fortunately, you can clean it up a bit.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/windows-10/windows-10-tip-clean-home-view-file-explorer" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://winsupersite.com/windows-10/windows-10-tip-clean-home-view-file-explorer#comments Windows 10 Fri, 17 Oct 2014 16:29:00 +0000 45121 at http://winsupersite.com Windows App Studio Beta Improves with App Side-loading, More http://winsupersite.com/software-development/windows-app-studio-beta-improves-app-side-loading-more <div class="field-deck"> An amazing tool gets more amazinger </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Microsoft's amazing web-based app creator tool received a major update this week.
