On first using Windows 10, I made some adjustments and customizations. My goal was to get Windows 10 working as simply as possible, with a minimum of its advanced options.

My Customization of Windows 10

I adjust a few things with Windows 10 so that it would be more familiar to me and run more simply and smoothly.

What I was most impressed with was the ability to run Windows 10 apps on the desktop. I was very impressed by the Maps App to get directions. The Microsoft Maps app allows you to: 1) set your preferred transit mode; 2) set your preferred units of measure (e.g., meters or non-standard); 3) set favorite locations for quick access and directions; 4) choose options such as leave by, arrive by, or leave now. This is an excellent interface-quick and easy, easier than using the web-based Bing maps and superior to Google maps.
