Microsoft Windows 7 VS Windows 10
Windows 7 was launched by Microsoft in 2009 and after several years in 2015, Microsoft launched another operating system. Both Windows are marvels of their times.
There was no competition for windows 7 when it was launched and still, it is a stable and reliable operating system for computers. It is said that Microsoft will discontinue its updates in 2020. In this case, you have to upgrade your personal computer to windows 10. Windows 7 is a great operating system with solid working. Between the years 2009-2015, Microsoft also launched Windows 8 that was not that much appreciated some users liked it but many were not happy.

The Start Menu
The start menu in windows 7 was beautifully built and just like the old versions of the windows and the users were pleased with it. After windows 8 launched we experienced a touch-focused interface with big icons and swiping start menu. Change is good but people didn’t really like it. In windows 10 Microsoft gave a well-designed start menu which was a combination of the traditional start menu and the live tiles concept and so the mistake was corrected.
Searching Files And Folders
In windows 7 the search was only able to search the files and folders that are in the system or in the hard disk but with the new Windows 10 you can search for files and folders in the system it also generates searches from the internet. The voice assistant Cortana in the start menu helps the user to do so.
Microsoft’s first-person voice assistant Cortana is added in Windows 10 for search purposes basically. Like Google Now and Apple Siri is the same in working but Microsoft put Cortana on high duty in windows 10. By clicking on the search area in the Taskbar Cortana is opened opens and allows you to ask her several questions like search queries, your upcoming reservations, weather, and helps in navigation. Microsoft has launched Cortana for Apple and Android for making life easier.
Virtual desktops were not present in windows 7 but you can download software to create a virtual desktop for you. On the other hand, Windows 10 totally supported virtual desktops as the system has the function built-in already.
When windows 7 was launched there was hardly the concept of smart devices and managing different apps over different devices but with time things changed and Microsoft added a feature of universal apps in Windows 10. This means you can buy an app and you can run it on your personal computer, tablet, and windows phone.
The traditional browser of Microsoft Windows Internet Explorer is now replaced with the Edge Browser in the new windows 10.
Microsoft Windows 7 served its users well in the gaming department. Many players use windows 7 for gaming as it is a trusted platform for them. Windows 10 is built on a solid basis with some additional improvements. The most noticeable addition of DirectX 12 and Game DVR. The smart upgrade to the Xbox app allows players to record videos of games in real-time and then share it with their friends.
