The final build of Windows 10 is jam packed with a whole range of new and different features that you'll be sure to love so if you have just got yourself a new Windows 10 laptop, you've come to the right place.

We have rounded up the 10 main things we think you should look out for from the get-go having spent some time playing with the new OS from Microsoft since it arrived in July.

Read on to find out some of the aspects we think you'll enjoy most and let us know in the comments if we missed one of your favourites. For now though, here are ours.

Microsoft got rid of the “Start” button in Windows 8 in favour of the "Live Tiles" interface, but the feature is making a triumphant return with Windows 10. The new Start Menu will allow you to access and pin apps, as well as pin your contacts and websites into it. It even provides the ability to search for content.

The personal assistant from Windows Phone is now available on PCs through Windows 10. Cortana will offer her help and answer your questions through various browser commands, as well as through the OS itself. She's always-listening too, as long as you enable the feature. Just say "Hey, Cortana", and then she'll wake up and understand you.

Pocket-lint10FeaturesEdge

Microsoft Edge is the company's replacement browser for Internet Explorer. It is the new, default web browser for Windows 10. Cortana integration, Reading View, direct web page annotation, Reading List, browser hub, and easier sharing are just a few of the new browser's most interesting features.

Your standard password may become obsolete when it comes to signing into frequently-used apps in Windows 10. The Fast Identity Online standard is a new feature in Windows 10 that allows you to log in using super easy methods. It supports fingerprint readers and even retina scanners on compatible devices, but even if you have neither you can log in through a simple PIN code that is not stored on the machine so cannot be hacked.

There is an improved and specialised version of Windows 10 exclusively for Microsoft's smart­phones. Outlook and Office have been remodeled in Windows 10 for phone too in order to resemble the PC apps. A coordinated messaging hub is also a key feature that provides access to Skype and various messengers in one convenient space. Windows 10 for phone will launch later than the PC version.

Windows 10 allows you to create different desktops for multiple projects and purposes; you can easily switch between them and pick up where you left off each time. This type of feature should come in handy for working on separate projects simultaneously - or just keeping business and personal business separate.

Pocket-lint10FeaturesMultitasking

A quadrant layout in Windows 10 allows you to snap up to four apps on the same screen. You will be able to view and rearrange all open apps, as well as switch them between any of your multiple desktops. Windows 10 will even make suggestions for filling any available space in the quadrant layout.

Windows 10 gives you multiple ways to interact with your devices.

You will be able to touch, type, or write – use a writing pad, touch keyboard, or type the old-­fashioned way. Switching between touch and non­touch interfaces has never been easier, thanks to the 'Contiuum' feature. Contiuum allows Windows 10 to be able to detect if you're using a mouse and keyboard, or if you're using a touchscreen and resize and layout the screen applicably.

You can now play against other Xbox One players, stream games, and record your own gameplay right from your Windows 10 device. No more fighting over TV-usage, as you can play directly on your PC's screen.

This isn't really a feature, but it is a nice perk that we think everyone will enjoy.

Windows 10 is free for existing Windows 7 and 8/8.1 users for the first year, though pricing after that has not yet confirmed. Microsoft has confirmed that updates for Windows 10 will be free for the entire lifetime of their device.
