10 = 8 + 7 + X
It is like Windows 10 = Windows 8 + Windows 7 => a combination of better parts of both the versions of this very operating system + certain things of its own.
The original Start menu, the most convenient windows start button is now back. It was the one forgotten in Windows 8 which had introduced the application display in tiles format. So again, Windows 10 has brought to us a convenient blend of the older versions. The default left bottom Start button which when clicked shows a list of programs with column for tile display of apps.
Windows 8 opened the built in applications into a full screen view, disabling the comfort and forcing the user to dive into the opened application. Here in Windows 10, the applications open just as a normal desktop window, helping users to multitask. So we can say, efforts were put into improve the past mistakes.
Finally, a new browsing experience is what Microsoft brings in for us. Yes the Internet Explorer hasn’t been trashed completely. It has been kept for compatibility purposes.

Talk to your system like you are to communicate with a person. You won’t need to mess up with clicks and tabs for easy common tasks like setting a reminder or searching a function. Also can it entertain you telling jokes if you ask for.

Writing on the web page [as discussed above -> Edge], swiping through, use the keyboard where necessary or write with a pen to add notes or draw naturally and lastly, you can communicate with the setup using merely a mic.
Identical to your notification system in the mobile phones and tablets, the action center in Windows 10 pops up your app notifications and saves it without creating issues like permanent vanishing. You can choose to connect with the app through quick actions via notifications, like jumping into the app or deleting the pop up. Choose what applications you want to be notified from, and what pop ups you would want to hide.
