Windows 10–Visuals Icons

Totally love the simplicity in UI, the icons used. For instance here are the icons used in the Settings dialog window.


Action Center

Swipe from the right to access it.


It shows me email from Outlook, which needs my attention, and other key actions which I may want to take. Here again, extremely clean, simple design and visuals in action.

Microsoft Edge–The new browser in windows 10

One of the most common tools we all use is a browser, and I find the new Edge browser provided by Microsoft in Windows 10 just super.


To say it’s fast is an understatement. It’s fast and snappy.

Internet Explorer?

IE is still around, and if you want to open a specific website page with it? That’s possible too.


Yes you’d need to hang on to IE if you’ve got some favorite add-ons which you use regularly, especially folks in the enterprise.

Microsoft’s new Edge browser has discarded two of the oldest browser technologies found in the aged Internet Explorer (IE) and is replacing them with add-ons based on HTML5.

Windows 10 Installation on Lenovo x220 Tablet

Around 5th of August I received a notification on my computer that Windows 10 is available for my machine.

The notification when clicked seem to indicate that it had already downloaded Windows 10. On clicking I realised that was not so. It then proceeded to download it.


Smooth! Is the only word I can think of. I upgraded my Windows 8.1 loaded Lenovo X220 Tablet. I think this is the first Windows installation ever where I’ve experienced everything working post installation.

No missing drivers

Can you beat that. Everything worked, Wi-Fi, display was perfect. And hold your breath my Tablet Pen worked perfectly.

Thank you Microsoft for a flawless upgrade experience.


A much cleaner interface, don’t know how to explain this, but simplicity and detailing both at the same time.
