Where did my Windows Media Center go and what’s new in Windows 10?

After upgrading your operating system to Windows 10 you will no longer have the Windows Media Center application. In addition to losing Windows Media Center users will no longer be able to play DVD’s without downloading some form of third party “Playback Software”.  Along with removal of Media Center the game Hearts and Desktop Gadgets are gone.

Cortana, Microsoft’s new voice search tool will only be available to limited countries (US, Canada, UK, China, France, Italy Germany and Spain). If you want to take advantage the new Windows Hello capabilities to log on you will need an infrared camera or a fingerprint reader.

Windows updates for the home user will no longer be an option as updates will now be downloaded and applied automatically. Business additions of Windows 10 will still have the ability for administrators to control updates.

Hope this helps you get ready for Windows 10.

Until next time … RIDE SAFE!
