The Edge web browser seem to be another feature that many users like. It can be even more efficient that Google Chrome, it is user-friendly, and it is universal, so it can be used on any mobile devices. Tab management is also quite good, with such features as the one which allows you to set aside a group of recently opened tabs, so to start a new session.

Microsoft Cortana

Cortana, an intelligent personal assistant created by Microsoft, is a very interesting and in many cases useful tool, which features were improved. However, it is only available for user in certain regions of the world.

The change that users seem to like a bit less is the fact that the new functions and updates in Windows 10 are installed automatically, whether you like it or not.
