Thankfully, Windows 10 rectifies this error as Start Menu makes a comeback and it’s better than ever. This new and fresh Start Menu gives you access to almost all major features available on Windows 10, which is a huge help for the newcomers.

Continuum is a new feature in Windows 10 that allows you to choose your interface. If you like mobile or Windows 8 style interface with tiles on your screen, you can choose it. If you don’t want that kind of interface, no worries, stick to the old format. This new feature is basically an integration of Windows 7 and Windows 8. Instead of choosing the interface for you, Microsoft has given you the option go with the one that suits you best.

It contains almost all features that you expect from a modern day browser, plus it works really fast, unlike its predecessor.
