But after the Windows 10 Upgrade from Windows 8 or 8.1. It came into view in terms of design and features that are not too much difference between Windows 8.1 and Windows 10. Many features and design look like the Windows 8.1. But Microsoft has made a nice change in Windows 10, it was the StartMenu.

Windows 8.1 looks good in design. but it doesn’t have the StartMenu, as was available in the previous version of Windows. Because of this, the version came under criticism. Some people liked this change and many didn’t. It was also said that this version is specially designed for touch-screen computers and laptops.

But Whatever, Windows popular Start menu has come back in Windows 10. And It is not only Windows 10 is better in the many terms eg: Security and stability.
